    1 hr ago | Amazin' Avenue

    "As a true number one, I would take him over any pitcher in the big leagues" - Curt Schilling on @MattHarvey33 I love Matt Harvey but there are clearly a few other guys I'd take over him (Mr. Kershaw, for one). Still, very high praise from a guy who was an ace pitcher in his own right.

    1 hr ago | Amazin' Avenue

    The long hated ex-Phillies shortstop had the Dodgers at the top of his trade list but if that didn't work out, the Mets were his #2 choice. He also had some nice things to say about the Mets' young pitching. Ugh, this feels dirty.

    "Bartolo's got some work to do," Long chuckled. "He's not too vested in putting that much time into getting his swing where it needs to be. He said he had two hits last year. I said how about four hits this year? He said how about three. That's where we're at with Bartolo."

  4. Terry Collins wants Juan Lagares to leadoffRead the original story

    7 hrs ago | Amazin' Avenue

    Can Lagares make the most of his opportunity this spring and give the Mets a steady hand at the top of the order? After throwing around the possibility last weekend of Curtis Granderson possibly getting time at leadoff, Terry Collins said on Saturday that he would prefer Juan Lagares in that role for the Mets this Season. Collins believes that putting Lagares at leadoff is what is most beneficial to Lagares and the Mets as a team, but also said that what he needs from Lagares is for him to get better with his plate discipline.

  11. Cesar Puello's Improvements During the 2014 SeasonRead the original story

    Friday | Amazin' Avenue

    I discussed Cesar Puello's improvement throughout the 2014 season over at my blog , but I wanted to focus on just the stats here. For this breakdown, I used www.mlbfarm.com to look at how the L/R splits improved throughout the season, and broke the stats down into five groups: his first month, when he was reportedly going to court dates; when he returned from finishing that court stuff through the end of May; an unusual 10-day hitless streak driven by a very high groundball rate; and then I split the remaining stats in half to keep sample sizes close.
