MetsBlog Q&Acast, pres. by Verizon: Syndergaard, Plawecki & Dykstra

Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer

In this edition of the MetsBlog Q&Acast, presented by Verizon, I’m running three short conversations with Mets prospects Noah Syndergaard, Kevin Plawecki and Allan Dykstra, courtesy of Aaron Gerberg.

Gerberg is a reporter for AP Radio and 24/7 News Source in New York. He went up to Double-A Binghamton to cover the playoffs. He was kind enough to send over this audio, providing an opportunity to hear from these kids direct.

We know lots about Syndergaard and Plawecki. However, so I was excited to get to hear from Dykstra, who is already 26, but putting up numbers that are right in the wheelhouse of this organization’s front office and at a position that is very much up in the air…

Dykstra was drafted in 2008 by the Padres, under a front office with Paul DePodesta and Sandy Alderson. The two men reacquired after joining the Mets in a deal with San Diego. This past year, while playing first base, he was named his league’s MVP, hitting .274 with 21 HR and leading the league in walks and OBP.

Here is Gerberg’s talk with Dykstra, Plawecki and Syndergaard…
