Travis d’Arnaud: d’Arnaud got off to a sizzling start before being sidelined to the DL after getting hit by a pitch. He returned in June but quickly went back to the DL that month. He came back in August and had a red hot August with the bat before cooling off in September. Overall d’Arnaud has progressed and showed a lot of development not only offensively but defensively behind the plate as well.

Grade: B

Kevin Plawecki: In his rookie season Plawecki showed some blurts, but it has been a learning process. He may have potential as a hitter but Kevin didn’t show much offensively, hitting only .219 to finish. He has however proven that he’s a good game caller behind the plate and works well with the pitcher. Still could improve on his throws.

Grade: C-

Anthony Recker: The longtime Mets backup, Recker was just what he always was. Capable of filling in when d’Arnaud or Plawecki when needing a break. Occasionally, he showed some pop, but doesn’t hit much for average.

Grade: D

Johnny Monell: Was in and out of the majors and the minors. Played sparingly but wasn’t much productive.

Grade: Incomplete

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
