BA: Rafael Montero and Wilmer Flores Pitcher and Player of the Year
 September 18th, 2013  10:00 am
Writing at Baseball America, Mike Kerwick names Rafael Montero the Mets’ Best Pitcher and Wilmer Flores’ the Mets’ organization’s Best Player.

In selecting Montero, Kerwick noted that his alternative was Noah Syndergaard:

Montero edges out Noah Syndergaard, a 21-year-old righty who has drawn raves since arriving in a trade with the Blue Jays….Montero had the better season, but scouts regard Syndergaard as having the higher upside.

 

Montero certainly pitched more than Syndergaard, by almost 40 innings. Syndergaard struck out more batters on a rate basis, with an almost identical walk rate. Montero’s ERA and opponents’ batting lines were both slightly (very slightly) better.

                             Montero                        Syndergaard
IP                         155.1                                117.2
ERA                     2.78                                   3.06
K                          150                                    133
K%                       24%                                    28%
BB%                    5.6%                                   5.9%
OPP                  .232/.275/.323                   .243/.289/.376

 

On the position side, in his age 22 season, Cesar Puello hit .326/.403/.547 with 21 doubles and 16 homers in 91 games in Binghamton before he was suspended as part of the Biogenesis mess. In AAA, playing mostly as a 21-year-old, while turning 22 in August, Wilmer Flores hit .321/.357/.531 with 36 doubles and 15 homeruns in 107 games. Politically, in awards season, I suspect the Mets and BA would both like to avoid a player connected to Biogenesis. Even so, Puello had the better on-base percentage and better slugging percentage (and yes, he was playing at a lower level, in a more difficult environment for hitters).

So, who you got for Mets organization Pitcher and Player of the Year?

Now that the season is over its time to enjoy the playoffs and WS.
Looking ahead for the Mets, I was told today was an important day in that it would be a "good thing" if the Mets lost because if the fall into the bottom 10? or 11? they dont have to surrender their #1 draft pick if they sign any type A free agents. I could not find any info on this anywhere, so I figured I would ask the Met team on BTW trophy

1 game ahead of the sorry ass no account Phillies.

The Phillies with the 3rd highest pay roll in baseball and the worst run differential in the NL.

Jimmy Rollins in 2013 may be the worst every day major league hitter.

If Amaro is not fired as the GM of this mess I will not get the baseball package next year or support the Phillies.

Cant believe I lost that bet this year considering the Mets are building for the future.

They unfortunately are going through what Mets had to go through, and thats many bad big money contracts. They paid big money to those guys, Rollins, Howard, Holliday, Hamels, Lee, etc because of the success they brought. Now they have to live with it and rebuild like Mets did. Mets are forced to spend this year because attendance is declining and they must make a few impact signings.

I'll believe it when I see it but there are no guarantees that free agents want to play for this team

players do want a chance to win a title and they appear to be a ways away in my view

I'll trade my last 8 years for yours, remember,  you got to the promised land SQUASHING the Mets along the way.  Baseball is finally getting more like football in that you have to suffer a little to win.  This is your suffering.  Be thankful for your past.  Just like the Yankees proved this year, every year can't be a winner.

they made the top 10 so they won't have to surrender a pick  the big question is will they sign a big free agent   this years crop of free agents is thin

Without further ado, here's the order.

1. Astros
2. Marlins
3. White Sox
4. Cubs
5. Twins
6. Mariners
7. Phillies
8. Rockies
9. Blue Jays
10. Mets
11. Blue Jays (for failing to sign 2013 No. 10 pick Phil Bickford)
12. Brewers
13. Padres
14. Giants
15. Angels

Great post Sam. Thanks for the update. This is great news.
To answer am earlier poster, the Mets will sign free agents, and free agents will come. It's all about the money with 99% of these guys. Only thing I would say, is the Mets will have to outbid other teams for certain guys. To show you how these guys are all about money, years ago Mets outbid Astros for Beltran. $121mm to $120mm, and he left his team. Even though that went in a Mets fan favor, I never felt the same about Beltran. He pulled a Lebron.

Pulled a Lebron?HuhHuhHuh? Beltran was in his 7th season with the Royals when he was traded to the Astros for their playoff run......he only played 90 games for the Astros which is just more than a half of a season so its not like he was there forever.......the Astros were so old there was no way Beltran would stay with a team with tons of guys retiring soon, Bagwell retired the next year, Jeff Kent moved on to the Dodgers, Craig Biggio retired a couple years later.........far from a Lebron when he wasnt even in Houston a year before leaving

I meant from the standpoint of fan support he received from Houston to stay, similar to Dwight Howard. These guys are all alike, all about the money.
As much as I am a Knick fan, if Carmelo leaves, let him go.

I agree. The first 0 for 4 he has the fans will be relentless.
I do think however, he will play great in a small market

Given their location, adjacent to what may well be the most populous Korean community this side of Seoul, they should try to sign Shin Soo Choo, though I know the Yankees are in that market, too.

Now Yonks, I KNOW you got to see Juan Legs in his short stint in Binghamton.. the kid has a sweet stroke and with that glove will be around bat or not but I have a ton of hope for that bat.

Simple solution:  pay Choo in won.

Meanwhile, I think the Mets rool.  Went to one game this year, saw a pitcher who would become Rookie Of The Year.

Of course, he was not on the Mets.  Undecided
