Mad GAD - The Future Duo? Reynolds, Herrera Could Shine One Day In Corona Park
        One day, we might see Matt Reynolds graze shortstop, and Dilson Herrera covet second base. While the jury is still out on Wilmer Flores, and we will see how his 2015 dictates, it seems like Reynolds is creeping up in the scout's book in Las Vegas. H...
One day, we might see Matt Reynolds graze shortstop, and Dilson Herrera covet second base. While the jury is still out on Wilmer Flores, and we will see how his 2015 dictates, it seems like Reynolds is creeping up in the scout's book in Las Vegas. He's been given ample opportunity, ...

I wanted to address the issue of the future of this blog for a second here. There's been speculation whether the blog will be closing. Also, the scheduling of some of the recent posts have been choppy (my fault) because I stepped away from those duties and didn't properly set up a system with ...

I noticed that players group together. Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares traded off swings in the batting cages. Steven Matz, Jacob deGrom and Cody Satterwhite ran their sprints together and moved between the fields as a trio. Brandon Nimmo, Cesar Puello, and Gavin Cecchini.

Reese Kaplan -- Best Baseball Movie of All Time?

Stephen Guilbert - Players Not To Overlook- Part Two: Jeurys Familia and Vic Black- Relievers on the Rise
Call me crazy but I think RHP Jeurys Familia offers the Mets the best closing option in 2015.  Jeurys Familia and Vic Black represent both the potential in the Mets bullpen as well as its risk. One gets hit around by lefties and the other walks too many. On...
Jeurys Familia and Vic Black represent both the potential in the Mets bullpen as well as its risk. One gets hit around by lefties and the other walks too many. One is turning 26, the other already 26 years of age. Both are right handed relievers with big fastballs and big potential.

There is something to be said for guys who just produce positive results. Whether you think they have the tools or velocity, or lack thereof, the purpose of pitchers is to put their teams in a position to win. Whalen has done that in spades so far in his minor league career.

Yesterday, March 2nd, I got to Tradition Field and the Mets spring training complex around 10 A.M. and started watching the already-ongoing practices on the half dozen fields behind Tradition Field--home of the Port St. Lucie Mets and the venue for Mets spring training.

Under Sandy Alderson's regime, the Mets have been decently efficient finding IFA gems on an annual basis. The 2011 international bonus class was the starting point of this regime's success. While the club's marquee signing, Venezulean C Jose Garcia, and other signings like C Dioni Rodriguez, ...

Every year, the opening day 25 man roster does not mean a whole lot in Metsville. My math could be off, but I believe 45 guys wore a Mets uniform last year, and that is not counting the guys sitting in Section 8 who bought their jerseys at the souvenir stand.
