Mets Minors: Offseason deep dive on Luisangel Acuna

Biography: The most famous thing about Luisangel Acuna will instantly be his relation to Ronald Acuna Jr. His older brother is one of the absolute best players in all of baseball and it’s possible that he could become an impact player in his own right. The scouting does not indicate that the younger Acuna will [...]

Mets Minors: Offseason deep dive on Jett Williams

Biography: Last year the first thing I mentioned about Jett Williams was his height. He hasn’t suddenly had a late life growth spurt or started wearing lifts to pad his measurements but perhaps, we are overselling how short 5’8” actually is. Jett Williams cannot be compared to Eddie Gaedel, the shortest player of all time [...]

Mets Minors: Offseason deep dive on Kevin Parada

Biography: We wrote about Parada last season and nothing has changed about his biography except he is another year older and another league more advanced. While watching another Met catching prospect (who is younger than him) ascend to the majors, he spent most of his year in Advanced A. Resume: 2023 was a slightly down [...]

Diving into Drew Gilbert’s 2023 home/road splits

Of the prospects that the Mets picked up in their numerous deadline deals, the one that had the most success after being acquired was outfielder Drew Gilbert, who was part of the package received from the Astros for Justin Verlander. Gilbert had forced an in-season promotion while with the Houston organization, going from Hi-A to [...]

Mets Minors: Offseason deep dive on Drew Gilbert

Biography: The polished outfielder who brings five tools in varying degrees was acquired from the Houston Astros in exchange for returning Justin Verlander after they let the Mets pay him $43.3 Million. Drew Gilbert is only 5’9” and is among the smallest top prospects I’ve ever written about. The Minnesota native went to college in [...]

A chat on the loaded Binghamton Rumble Ponies

Binghamton is loaded with players who should don a Mets jersey in the next two-to-three years.  Of course, we all know about the players the Mets got for the old pitchers and there are several other hitting prospects worth mentioning, as well.  And the pitching staff is deep, too.  So, it seemed like a good [...]

Mets Minors: With Ronny Mauricio in the majors, who is the top prospect?

The Mets began the year with four players on the cusp of the majors ready to make an impact. What they did not begin the year with was doubt about who was the Top Prospect in the organization. Francisco Alvarez had the highest ceiling and has proven up to the task of making the next [...]

Athletic Jett Williams is exactly what the Mets need

One of the explicitly stated purposes of MLB’s rules changes for the 2023 season was to help players show off their athleticism on the field. For all that has gone wrong for the Mets in 2023, one thing they did not do during the last offseason was get more athletic. However, the good news is [...]

A more-detailed look at Luisangel Acuna, Drew Gilbert and Ryan Clifford

Yesterday’s win on Sunday Night Baseball notwithstanding, it’s been a tough road for the Mets since the big selloff at and near the trade deadline. It’s made following the minor league system more interesting than following the MLB club. We should always keep an eye on how the farm system is doing. But with the [...]

Mets Minors: Luisangel Acuna, Drew Gilbert and the 2026 Mets

The Mets' 2023 season is something that many fans wish they could put in their rear-view mirrors. It was a painful season and the most expensive team in baseball history collapsed to a degree that could never have been anticipated. While everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong, the Mets used their owner’s [...]

Talking prospects acquired in the three in-season deals by the Mets so far

With the Mets adding prospects with three trades so far this season, it seemed like a good time to talk minor leaguers with David Groveman. This piece initially started out discussing the trade with the Marlins, only to be eclipsed by the one with the Rangers. If we were smart, we’d hold off on this [...]
