I agree that you need fair return.  If the Tigers AREN'T looking at a guy like Parnell they're only giving away the World Series

wheeler tipping pitches


Collins Received Texts That Wheeler Was Tipping His Pitches
 An article by Satish Ram     No Comments


The Associated Press reported on what Terry Collins had to say before Wednesday’s game to reporters regarding Zack Wheeler tipping his pitches:

New York Mets manager Terry Collins said top prospect Zack Wheeler is tipping his breaking pitches. Collins said in his pregame media session Wednesday the Mets noticed the flaw in Wheeler’s motion during his second big league start a night earlier. Wheeler allowed four runs in 5 1-3 innings against the Chicago White Sox.

“We saw it. We tried to address it during the game a little bit,” Collins said.

The 23-year-old right-hander is scheduled to start again Sunday, and Collins says pitching coach Dan Warthen will work with Wheeler during a bullpen session Thursday.

“Guys look for it all the time. It starts with the glove,” said Collins. “Moving the glove there’s different things to look for and then all of sudden you start to look when he speeds up, when he slows down, what the pitches are. You start to get a read on it.”

“This is going to get out as a scouting report, but he’s been tipping his off-speed stuff more than his fastball,” Collins said. “We’ve got to fix it. We’ll fix it tomorrow.”

Collins said he’s talking publicly about it because the problem was so obvious he received about 10 text messages and emails alerting him to the issue. Collins said Wheeler was also tipping his pitches in his debut, when he tossed six shutout innings.

It seems like every couple weeks or so, a new mechanical issue surfaces with Zack Wheeler. I wouldn’t mind this as much if I trusted Dan Warthen at all. Wheeler’s young and has some kinks to work out in his game — but the ace-like fastball and breaking pitches are as good as advertised. Wheeler noticeably threw more breaking balls in his start against the White Sox than in Atlanta, which worked to his disadvantage in many ways. If Warthen can teach him anything, it’s “location, location, location…” and of course, the age-old adage about not tipping your pitches if you want to have a successful MLB career.

Watching Wheeler a couple nights ago led me to make a comparison to John Maine — remember him? Maine struggled with his pitch count in some games not only because of his inability to locate in tight spots, but he labored through innings with a high rate of foul balls. Similarly to Wheeler, Maine also had a fastball with great life up in the strike zone and an easy pitching motion.

Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard to Represent Mets in 2014 Futures Game
By Matt Musico
June 26, 2013 No comments

Starting pitching prospects Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard will both be at Citi Field in the middle of July. They aren’t getting the call to the big leagues just yet, but they will be representing the Mets as their two participants for this year’s Futures Game. The event will be held on Sunday, July 14th at 2pm.

Yesterday, we found out Mookie Wilson will manage the USA team, while Edgardo Alfonzo will head the World team. They will each get a highly-rated Mets hurler for their squads, as Syndergaard will go to the US, and Montero to the World.

Syndergaard has spent most of the season with St. Lucie, but recently got promoted to Double-A, impressing in his first outing for the B-Mets. Overall, Noah is 4-3 with a 3.10 ERA in 13 starts (69.2 innings pitched), and has collected 71 strikeouts and 17 walks.

Montero got roughed up for the first time in Triple-A last night, but still has had a stellar season while splitting time with Binghamton and Las Vegas. He’s a combined 7-4 in 15 starts (86.2 innings pitched), with a 2.91 ERA, 92 strikeouts, and 16 walks.

Like the MLB does with the All-Star game, there is a final vote left up to the fans for the remaining spots on the USA and World teams. Ten players will be vying for two spots (five on each side), and Brandon Nimmo is included in this year’s vote. Make sure to cast a vote for the 2011 first-round pick by visiting this site.

Right, the dopey Nationals thought it was a great idea to shut down Strausurg last year because they would certainly win many World Series in the years to come starting in 2013.  OOPS!

The Tigers are desperate for a closer.  The Marlins also have a great candidate for them in Sishek.  Who knows who the Tigers would offer for Parnell, but it should definitely be worth consdering.

why are you guys so eager to get rid of parnell  look at the list of closers the mets have had the previous yrs. we finally have someone who is consistent and you want to dump him for an otfielder that hits 2 80. it is much harder to fine a good closer than an outfielder

3 blown saves in 15 chances... also an ERA for June approaching 5... The beginning of the season he was lights out, but he's showing more of his true self now.  He's not a top flight closer.  If you can package him as such DO IT!  Sam, the Tigers fans that I know don't want Parnell.  What's that tell you about how he's viewed.

His value is at the highest it has ever been. I am in favor of trading him if it can help in other areas.
I know it's early, but Eric Young Jr. Looks good, and is what team has been missing since Reyes left..and that's a lead off man...

in my mind I had a feeling Wheeler would be the lesser of the 2 stud kids.  Notice how the guy that didn't have all the hype is lights out?  Kazmir got all the hype, got dealt and was never as advertised.  Sam told me I was crazy for being willing to send Wheeler to Miami for Stanton... DO IT

Minor League Stuff
Syndergaard Sharp Again, K’s Nine In Five Strong Innings
 An article by Satish Ram     22 Comments


Well, Thor just continues to make his case to be our mid-season #1 prospect (hint-hint) as he posted another strong pitching performance today. He lasted five innings against the Trenton Thunder, and ran up his pitch count with nine strikeouts. He left the game after 93 pitches thrown — 67 of them for strikes — and was in control the entire game. His only blemish all game was a lead-off home run to Ramon Flores. He settled down immediately after that – striking out three in a row to end the first.

Syndergaard would go on to allow just three hits and two walks over the next four innings, while striking out six batters. He could probably have dominated for another two innings or so the way he was going, but alas, pitch counts… It would make zero sense to allow a top prospect who is sitll the minors to break the 100-pitch marker with consistency anyway.

Syndergaard’s final line was 5.0 IP, 4 H, 1 HR, 2 BB, 9 K, 67:26 S:B ratio

Honestly, the young Noah Syndergaard has made the step-up from St. Lucie to Binghamton — which is notoriously a tough move — and seems to have not even been affected… it’s ridiculous.

caesar has flown under the radar due to be tied to the doping in miami that is why the ny press has not jumped on him

One of the reasons the B-Mets have been so good: RF Cesar Puello who had two hits in game two on Saturday (including a double) and two more on Sunday, with a homerun against rehabbing big leaguer Michael Pineda, his 15th of the year. Puello is now hitting .336/.401/.612. The 22-year-old is tied for the Eastern League lead in homers, is second in batting average, tops in slugging percentage and third in stolen bases (18). Puello is 18-for-22 stealing bases. Pretty much the only blemish in his offensive game at this point is his strike zone control. He is still prone to chasing breaking pitches as his 5.4% walk rate attests. His on-base-percentage is supported by 11 hit-by-pitches.

seems like the less they talk about a kid, the better he is.  I think the Mets learned how to do this watching the Yankees.
