  • Jeff McNeil

    8 hits in a row this past week. The guy's perceived ceiling coming out of college was utility infielder. Along the way, though, he developed power. He's already 26. He'd been tearing up the Minors all season, but the Wilpons were determined to keep a guy entering his late 20s down until after Super 2, so they went with Reyes. Anyway, he's here now and looking good so far.

    doesn't look bad, good contact ability and if power comes he could be a decent 2b. he is limited to 2B and not good there (like all mets infielders) but then again murphy was bad too. maybe he can really become a new murphy albeit I think he doesn't quite have his power.
    I now have my own non commercial blog about training for batspeed and power using my training experience in baseball and track and field.

      He hit the ball hard yesterday into outs right at the fielders.
      Keith Law thinks little of him, prompting Peter Alonso to stick up for him. Prospect experts can’t handle late bloomers is my guess. Or McNeil is a flash in the pan. Who knows ?

        He has obviously looked good but I agree with you.....who knows?

        Time will tell, but I still hope the Mets make a move on DJ Lemakieu from the Rockies.

        Who I am kidding?

          I was at both of his 4-hit games.

          Play him until he shows you he's a bust. He's one of the team's best if not the best hitter right now. Nothing wrong with slapping singles all over the place.

            Didn't read Law's comments. He's probably just trying to be balanced. After all, when his patrons were running the team during the Alderson regime, he tended to overpraise Mets prospects.

            LeMahieu is a product of Coors Field. When he won the batting title (after avoiding every good pitcher the last month of the season), he had about a 100 point home/away split. The numbers away from Coors Field aren't pretty:
