New York Mets Team Preview

Joey Ricotta | March 13th, 2019

The Mets are a very interesting team. They find themselves in a division that is shaping up to be a four-team, very competitive race. GM Brodie Van Wagenen has put together a roster that can compete, whether the rest of the baseball universe believes it or not. Van Wagenen is the former co-founder of Creative Artists Agency. He helped negotiate deals for Robinson Cano with the Mariners and Yoenis Cespedes with the Mets among others. Trying to get away from their conventional approach, Van Wagenen added some new pieces to improve the Mets chances in 2019.

What’s Brodie Done? A Lot So Far

Cyrus Tarapore | February 15th, 2019

For Mets fans, last year was not only dreadful but confusing at the same time. The team started out torrid, going 11-1 and then proceeded to have a dreadful stretch where the season was essentially over. Without any pressure on the team, the team finished the season 44-37 in their last 81 to bring them to 77-85 for the season.

Givanni Damico | February 7th, 2019

The Mets only have two prospects in the top 100. I feel bad for Mets fans because they’ve lost so much recently and haven’t gotten much in return, in terms of players or team success. In my opinion, Mets fans will be waiting a while for their franchise to be successful but I’ve been known to be wrong here and there. Continue reading

2019 Outfield Preview: The Next 25

Matt Bishop January 25th, 2019

We always talk about how deep the Outfield is, but if you were to construct your outfield from just this list of 25 players, you would be in great shape.  With the exception of a few, there are at least 8 of the first 12 players on this list that have tremendous upside and could far exceed their draft value. And 11 of the 12 can be had outside the Top 100.  There is tremendous value in the later rounds for the Outfield Position this year and you may not have to pay up for a stud: Continue reading

Gary Sheffield was a Right-handed power hitter that was known for having one of the quickest bats in the game. This marks his 5th year on the Hall of Fame ballot. Will he get enough love from the Baseball Writers Association of America to get inducted this year? Continue reading
