Making a Case For Tram; Stacking Up Against Yount, Ripken, Ozzie, & Larkin

trammell picNow that we’ve taken a look at how Alan Trammell stacks up against other shortstops in the Hall, let’s take a look at how he stacks up against Shortstops in the Hall from his era which include Robin Yount, Cal Ripken Jr., Ozzie Smith, and then specifically against Barry Larkin as he was not in the Hall at the the time this was originally written.

I took a look at standard Hall of Fame stats as well as some simple Sabermetrics and then others like awards, games played at other positions, etc. Finally I took a look at Baseball-Reference.com’s who are they most like for their career. Take a look at how Tram faired…

Prospect On The Move: Luis Cessa Is A Wanted Man

Back in 2013, I interviewed Luis Cessa for MetsMinors.net and had an opportunity to meet a great young man, very humble, easy going and a love for the game with a unique talent, once an infielder who became a very good pitcher. With his talent, Cessa moved up through the Mets system each year and impressed along the way.

In 2013, he pitched for the Savannah Sand Gnats in Class A (Full) and was 8-4, with a 3.12 ERA, striking out 124 batters in 130 innings. He also helped the Gnats captured the South Atlantic League title as the team finished 77-61, winning their first league championship in 20 years.

In 2014, the Mexican native started for Class-A (Adv) St. Lucie Mets and finished 7-8, with a 4.00 ERA. This past season he was promoted to Double-A and in 13 starts, he was 7-4, with a 2.91 ERA, which earned him a spot on the Triple-A Las Vegas roster last July. He struggled in five starts, posting an 0-3 record and a 8.51 ERA.
At the trading deadline, the Mets sent Cessa and pitcher Michael Fulmer to the Detroit Tigers for Yoenis Cespedes. The trade would bring quick dividends to the Mets, as Detroit looked to build their future.

I thought the Dodgers interest in Johnny Cueto was risky.

Now he signed with the Giants. I get the deal. Huge potential reward. Gigantic risk.

It also means the end of the Tim Linceum era.

Meanwhile Pete Rose is back in the news again and Serena Williams needs to compete with a horse.
