On Wednesday night I watched David Wright on Jon Stewart and I gotta tell you, it was so cool to see anything Mets related on TV again. David Wright was pretty funny and he looked very comfortable on TV. When asked about how the season ended, he said he still has nightmares about it… (me too David) He also said that we were going to win it all in 2008 and I believe him! I was [...]
It’s obvious the Mets need to make some changes in the bullpen, but how to go about doing it may pose some interesting dilemmas for Omar Minaya. It’s clear that the fans demand the immediate departure of Guillermo Mota, but I don’t really see the Mets eating the final year of his contract. As it stands now, with the Aaron Sele filing for free agency, the Mets have at least one opening. Some say we [...]
It seems like the Mets are considering making a big run at free agent third baseman, Alex Rodriguez. Bob Klapisch of the Record reports that the Mets plan to ask David Wright about switching positions. Wright had volunteered early this year to do just that, if it would mean landing Alex Rodriguez, and now the Mets are going to find out if he still feels the same way. Here is what David Wright said last March: "If Omar or someone [...]
What an interesting past 24 hours it has been in the world of Major League Baseball! One minute the Red Sox are popping corks all over Coors Field and the next Alex Rodriguez makes “news” by opting out of his Rangers/Yankees deal. In hindsight, looking back it’s hard NOT to pick the Red Sox as the eventual World Champs. Granted, because I am a Mets fan I would have just KNOWN there would have been [...]
I think Alex Rodriguez is probably the best player I have ever seen play in the last 10-15 years. That being said, I implore Mets fans not to get blinded by A-Rod’s amazing stats… A-Rod is a ‘me first" type player who would not add anything to the Mets clubhouse. The Mets had plenty of problems last season, but clubhouse chemistry was not one of them. A guy like A-Rod might garner the Mets a few [...]
Associated Press is reporting that Alex Rodriguez has opted out of his 10 year $252 million dollar contract with the Yankees. His career with the Yankees has come to an end… Alex Rodriguez opted out of his $252 million, 10-year contract with the Yankees on Sunday in what appears to be the end of his career with New York. Rodriguez’s decision, announced by agent Scott Boras during Game 4 of the World Series, makes him [...]
Think of Psychology, science, research, as well as data analysis. Fear not Mets faithful, you haven’t mistakenly entered a web-site designed for fans of Bill Nye the Science Guy. Rather, the terms listed above are all key words that can be directly related to New York Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson, who in hindsight, utilizes all of those tactics to better assist in his tutelage of the Mets pitching staff. Beyond the aftermath of the [...]
According to MLB.com, over 50 Japanese players have officially filed for free agency and are eligible to negotiate contracts with and MLB teams. Several of these Japanese baseball players have already made it clear they intend to land a contract to play major league baseball here in the United States and key among them is outfielder Kosuke Fukudome and right-hander starting pitcher, Hiroki Kuroda. Kosuke Fukudome was 29 days short of the service time needed for [...]
Adam Rubin of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets will no longer pursue Rudy Jaramillo as hitting coach and that Howard Johnson will remain in that position. Three years ago, Minaya had interviewed Jaramillo for the manager’s job that went to Willie Randolph. He felt it would not be right to put him on Randolph’s staff now. The Mets’ staff will remain intact with the exception of Rickey Henderson. That vacancy could be [...]
We all know that our days at Shea Stadium are now numbered. I remember this past season, being asked to take a survey on the music played throughout the stadium. I received a light-up Mets pin for participating. So speaking of music, I decided to reflect on some of the sounds and songs played during the games at Shea in 2007. Some songs are player-related, and we may not hear them again if the player is not [...]
I don’t think it’s the age as much as it is the fact that Omar has soured on Paul Lo Duca. Despite being 35 years old, Lo Duca still has plenty of gas left. If Jorge Posada bolts the Yankees, you will definitely see Minaya make a strong effort to pursue him, and he is the same age as Lo Duca. Last season, Posada allowed over 100 stolen bases which was the second worst showing in the majors. He set [...]
