Finding Nimmo: Projecting the Newest Met

Michael Conforto was supposed to be one of the Mets’ top run producers this year. After storming through the minors last year, the 2014 draftee wound up being a crucial part of his team’s run to the World Series last year.

Captain Nimmo Summoned When Superior Caught Conforto’ing With Enemy

On Saturday, Michael Conforto was demoted to the minors.  Ouch.  Not only did he fall far from preseason expectations, but he seemed to be breaking out in April.  Coming out of April, he had 4 HRs and a .365 average.  In May and June, he hit .169 and .119 and, finally, the Mets threw in the towel just as Conforto's head was bouncing on the canvas.  Shame, isn't it?  Not a...

New York Mets pull trigger on 2 moves

On Saturday the New York Mets made two roster moves, one perhaps more expected than the other. As was expected and predicted, the Mets negotiated a deal with Jose Reyes, though the terms of it are a bit surprising. Just an hour and a half after officially being released and becoming a free agent, Reyes signed a minor league contract with the Mets. He will report to Brooklyn to play...
