New York Mets Minor League Baseball Commentary and Analysis
[powered by WordPress.]
Baseball America recently unveiled their list of top ten Mets prospects and topping the list is Dominican phenom Fernando Martinez. The kid’s just turned nineteen and he posted good but not great numbers at the Double A level. The kid is a little raw but he definitely has the tools to succeed and it looks like the Mets hope him to be playing with the big league club as early as 2009.
Deolis Guerra checks in at number two as the top pitching prospect and like Martinez, he’s very young. He’ll turn 19 in April and he already has a full season at St. Lucie under his belt. While he didn’t post great numbers, he was at least a level ahead of himself age wise. He did have some shoulder problems and he has yet to throw more then 100 innings in a season. I wouldn’t mind Guerra starting the season back at St. Lucie just to work on some of his pitches against lesser talent before he makes the push to Binghamton.
Carlos Gomez comes in at number three and unlike the top two, he’s major league ready. He hurt his hand when he was hit by a pitch but like the column says, Gomez should compete with Lastings Milledge for a starting outfield job.
Kevin Mulvey and Eddie Kunz round out the top five. Interestingly, Philip Humber has slipped all the way to seven after showing up at four last year.
The Zephyrs were blown out 11-3 and most of that was at the hands of Adam Bostick, who took the loss in his start. He gave up seven runs on nine hits with four strikeouts in 4 2/3 innings.
Carlos Gomez had a nice day at the plate. He doubed, drew three walks and drove in two runs. Ruben Gotay, singled, doubled, drove in one and scored.
The Zephyrs won 6-5 and a lot of that is because of a great start by Jason Vargas. He improved to 2-0 on the season and he gave up one run on one hit and three walks with five strikeouts in six innings of work.
Fernando Tatis hit a two run homer and that was his second long ball this year. Carlos Gomez drove in two runs and Lastings Milledge went one for two with a run and an RBI.
Jorge Sosa threw a nice game for the Zephyrs but the hitters couldn’t get anything going. He gave up two unearned runs on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts in seven innings of work.
Fernando Tatis hit a solo homerun for the Zephyrs. Carlos Gomez doubled and finished with two hits while Lastings Milledge made made his Zephyrs debut with a one for three game.
Jose Santiago was roughed up by Memphis in the Zephyrs 7-3 loss. He gave up five runs (four earned) on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 4 1/3 innings.
The Zephyrs managed just five hits. Carlos Gomez’s tripled and drove in a run while Chip Ambres hit a solo homerun.
You hate these kind of games. The Zephyrs came back from a two run deficit and took a 3-2 lead but the a run in the eighth and another run in the ninth meant a 4-3 loss at the hands of Nashville. Jason Vargas had a solid start. He gave up two runs on six hits with four strikeouts in six innings of work.
Carlos Gomez had a solid game at the plate. He went two for four with a double, an RBI and a run.

Playing baseball or basketball is completely allowed on golf vacations. Whether you need golf equipment or even basketball equipment, everything can be bought from the shops found locally. Playing only golf is pretty relaxing as well.
