More Bartolo! There's always, always, always, more Bartolo. Plus, the guys go into their first clubhouse.

For most teenagers, sleeping in past nine o’clock is an expectation and not a privilege. Waking up before noon is a rarity over the summer months, as a lack of motivation and responsibility fuse to create the perfect incentive to continue sleeping. When we’re on the road, we are not so fortunate; we are usually awake before the clock strikes 9. But yesterday morning was a different story for us curators of the CFBBQ as we were #blessed with the opportunity to doze past our usual roadtrip-influenced deadline. While an extra dose of REM was helpful to our overall psyches, nothing could prepare us for the obscene horror of another Phillies/Mets game.

Rocco DeMaro

A conversation with the Mets catcher, plus a tour of baseball's outliers and aberrations for the week

The quality of catching in the National League is kind of nuts right now.

Transaction Analysis: No Way, Jose

R.J. Anderson

The Orioles get a catcher in a pinch, the Mets drop another closer, and Troy Patton is Troy packin'. Because he got traded.

Did we get too tethered to prototypes when it came to the Mets' top 2011 pick?

The 2011 amateur draft was a talent smorgasbord that could satisfy the most esurient of appetites, the significance of which we are only beginning to scratch the surface of. Starting up top with Pirates’ ace Gerrit Cole, the players taken in the first round read like a who’s who for the next generation of baseball—names like Bundy, Bradley, Lindor, Baez, Fernandez, Gray, Meyer, Springer, and Stephenson. Sandwiched between these hyped warriors of the future is Brandon Nimmo, the 13th overall selection in the class, taken right after Taylor Jungmann and right before Jose Fernandez. At the time, Nimmo was a relatively unknown prospect from the relatively unknown state of Wyoming, a player without a high school team and a narrative that was more focused on his lack of playing experience than his exploits. At the time, it was a head scratcher given the talent still available on the board, and even years later the revisionist commentary has been easy to come by. Brandon Nimmo over Jose Fernandez? Really?

The Call-Up: Rafael Montero

6

Mark Anderson and Craig Goldstein

The Mets bring a mid-rotation arm to the majors.

The Situation: With the Mets sliding down the National League East standings, Jenrry Mejia moves from the rotation to the bullpen, clearing the way for BP’s no. 4-ranked Mets prospect, Rafael Montero. Montero will make his MLB debut at home against Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees on Wednesday night.

But might they, someday?

Gary Cohen: The Mets have a group of pitchers now who can help themselves (at the plate) a little bit more.

Ron Darling: I always say, on every ballclub there’s different fraternities—the everyday players, the bullpen guys, and the starting pitchers. If you have a close-knit bunch of starting pitchers that are talented as far as their pitching is concerned, they start to get uber competitive with the hitting, too, and you have a lot of fun with it. Who gets the most bunts down? Who’s got the most RBIs? Those are the things that make it the most fun.

Notes from the Field: April 29, 2014

A five-league look at Brandon Nimmo, Corey Knebel, Matt Hobgood, Jose Rondon and other prospects.

(Jeff Moore)

Brandon Nimmo, CF, Mets (St. Lucie)
Well built for 21, yet has a frame that will support more weight. Classic left-handed stance, quiet hands with a slight knee bend; swing is short and quick with a slight uppercut; generates natural backspin on the ball, which helps project above-average future power. He doesn't know how to drive the ball yet, but when he does the power will come and the doubles will turn into home runs. Extremely patient approach at the plate; absolutely will not expand the strike zone, even in RBI situations. Plus runner underway but not an explosive first step. Should be able to stay in center field for the foreseeable future.
