If that's our AAA All Star, we are in big trouble.

Should have brought him up last year when Ike was hitting .175.

He could hit 50 homers in Vegas, and it would translate to 3 homers here.

Should have been given an opportunity by now, guess they don't think much of him but its the mets so who knows, at a snails pace for them in decision making.

Collins will surely screw him up. He'll probably try to teach him the "Fundamentals of Baseball 101" like he has done with all of the other Met players.

Flores was an all star last year. That means bring up Dykstra and let him rot on the bench too. That's what we do to all stars.

The team is #1 in the division and only 1 All Str, I call BS :)

There must something inhibiting him from being mentioned in the media, maybe even a flaw in his game? Does anyone have insight on what it is? 

Thanks.

When there is a minor-league blog, it should be about hope and the future of the organization. This is not good news for the Mets and Met fans unless this career minor-leaguer is going to break into the roster. Tell us that's what's happening and it is news fit for discussion, here. What are we saying? that we have ne'er do wells on all levels of the system? Every dog has his day (and check this dog out)?

He's to young yet let him rot in the minors some more.  Maybe he will throw his arm out and we can forget him.

Why not give him a shot? One of these Vegas phenoms has got to stick at some point in time, right?  I know it's an offensive league (and city) but can't Sandy find a way to deal some of the prospects for a major league batter? I'm tired of the Rick Ankiels and Bobby Abreus.

@nwmets You mean John Dykstra, the Star Wars Oscar-winning photographic effects supervisor and developer of the Dykstraflex Camera? I don't know. But, he is not related to the ex-Met felon.
