Mets infielder Anthony Seratelli is a creative, video genius

Matthew Cerrone, Lead Writer

Hey, stop what you’re doing, close your office door, turn up your speakers and check out this incredible video work from Mets infielder Anthony Seratelli, who is trying to make the team’s 25-man roster as a back-up infielder.

Seratelli’s ArS*1 Productions is where he showcases videos that he produces with friends and family.

The first is a collection of short Vine videos he produced, while the second is a highlight reel of some impressive and funny editing… enjoy:

maybe he can do some editing on pitchers for him and his teammates to look at to get better.

Mets fans, look at us: we have become a whiney, bitchy group of people. Why dog on Matt for this blog? I know I enjoy it, and you are here too ... enough already, go start your own blog, and I will check it out. 


That being said, it got me thinking: if the internet was around in 1986, what would we have whined about? ...


* Rafael Santana's weak bat ("come on Cashen, trade for Ripken!!")

* No clear-cut closer ("Pick a damn closer Davey and stick with him!!")

* Lack of power at 1B ("Hernandez has a nice glove, but we need Glen Davis pronto!!")

* Not enough PT for Dykstra ("Come on, this guy is a future stud, play him full time!!")


Just curious ... obviously a busy day at work for me haha

Good video.....The question is: Can the boy play at the major league level?

Is this going to be another guy Mets fans fall in love not based off his on-field abilities, but rather his off-field story? Come on. He may have struggled growing up - many people have - and he may just be a video genius - wonderful - but what can he do for this team on the field? Based upon actually relevant information & evidence on this guy, he can't do much. He's 31 years old, has never played a single game in the majors, and is a career .276 hitter in the minors. It's nice that he is a local guy & fought to get where he is, but if Anthony Seratelli sees any significant time at the big league level this season, I can pretty much assure you that the Mets will be well on their way to another 90-plus loss season.

Metsblog= DEAD! What a shame. Oh well, that is what you get for being 'corporate'.

@Peter Loibl You do have to admit that this team is far from the 1986.

On the other hand, I liked Jack Clark at first better, I think he replaced Mex in St. Louis.

@Victor Triguero , yeah, I don't think any one is saying he's worthy of a job on a major-league roster because of his ability to produce digital video. That said, they're still impressive and fun to watch.

Should Matt not make money? Should he have stayed true to the cool, underground blogosphere? Give me a break. You complaining is the nerd version of rappers beefing over a rapper going "commercial." Whether I agree with Matt's points or not is irrelevant. The truth is that he dedicated countless hours to bring Mets fans the best Mets-based website on the entire Internet. Dude has a family to support & if that means he had to go "corporate" to get paid, then so be it. It's capitalism, homie. If you have a product in demand, you do all you can to maximize the profit of that product. It's not selling out, it's being smart.

For posting awesome videos produced by a Mets infielder? I'd love to hear you give more details on this, please?

@Matthew Cerrone  Matt, why did you take THIS one to heart?  People give you a hard time all the time on your written opinions about actual baseball matters.  Why chime in on this?  It was just an offbeat post.  Sort of keeping in the original spirit of the eclectic nature of a blog I think.  If people didn't like the videos or the posting, why would you take that feedback seriously?  There are a thousand other times when I think people have good discussions going where they question your position where I would rather hear you clarify/defend/elaborate.
