Mets Get Their Man After All

As expected, the Twins reached a tentative agreement with the Yankees Red Sox... Actually, none of the above. Despite hearing all winter that the Mets had little chance of pulling off this deal, it is Omar Minaya and company that have apparently reached a tentative agreement on a deal for...

Taking a Closer Look At Some Past Mets' #1 Draft Choices

Now, that I've completed my review of all of the Mets' #1 amateur draft choices, I thought I'd take a closer look at a few of them. It would be nice if I could see a pattern or general philosophy, but there clearly is none. Some of this lack of...

Don't Pull the Trigger Until You See the Whites of Their Eyes

The eyes of the Twins, that is. I would love to see Johan Santana grow old as a Met, and be the ace of our Citi Field pitching corps. It's becoming more evident each day that the Twins may have overplayed their hand in insisting on five Mets in exchange...

Amateur Draft Hits and Misses - Part 3

[Part 1] [Part 2] 1996 - Robert Stratton. A big, strong powerful hitter who spent lots of years in the minors hitting the long ball and doing little else. Surprisingly, never earned a big league shot. Eric Milton and Gil Meche were taken several picks later. 1997 - Geoff Goetz....

My Travelling Shoes

In about an hour from now I will be leaving on an extended business trip that may keep me away for up to two weeks. I'll have my laptop with me and I hope most of the places I stay have some sort of Internet connection, but I really can't...

Amateur Draft Hits and Misses - Part 2

Continuing my look at Mets' #1 selections year-by-year: 1980 - Darryl Strawberry. #1 pick in draft. Apparently, there was some thought given to taking Darnell Coles or Billy Beane, but in the end, the Mets went with the consensus and selected Strawberry, and it turned out to be the right...

Lies and the Lying Lard Butts Who Tell Them

(With apologies to Al Franken for the title) As someone who believes in the principle of innocent until proven guilty, I find myself in a dilemma. As a person who hates the way society is always looking for a scapegoat for a problem rather than a solution I am faced...

Editor's Note: This piece was originally published on June 5, 2007. - M.S. The Mets don't get to pick until the 42nd selection in this week's annual entry draft, which, incidentally will be televised for the first time. For the next few days, I'll review the Mets' first choices through...
