It was kind of a busy day as far as baseball news goes today. First, MLB.com reports: Dustin Pedroia was named the American League Rookie of the Year Award today. Pedroia became the first Red Sox player to win the trophy since Nomar Garciaparra did so in 1997. Pedroia was listed first on 24 of the 28 ballots submitted by two writers in each league city and second on the other four to total 132 points. [...]
In a recent poll, 58% of Mets fans don’t want the Mets to trade Milledge. I’m not exactly sure, but I bet that back in April less than half that amount would have voted to hang on to Milledge. I’m one of them. I understand how important it is for the Mets to address their shortcomings in the bullpen and in the rotation, but trading Milledge to fill those holes may not be in the [...]
Before Mets Merized, there was Mr. Met on Myspace, and today we are proud to say that we have now eclipsed 20,000 friends. WOW! We want to thank the thousands and thousands of Mets fans from all over the country for making this site and our partner sites on Myspace what they are today! So as a special treat, we have chosen one of our most special friends on Myspace to share her latest blog entry [...]
Kevin Kernan of the Post, had an interesting article in which he makes a strong case for going out and trading for the A’s Dan Haren. Pitching is the root of the Mets’ problem. They do not have the young arms in their system that the Yankees have. They have not overpaid to get the best arms in the draft and as a result no young starter stands out. Kevin Mulvey is the best of [...]
The best free agent pitcher available this year may not hail from the land of the free, and the home of the brave, but from the land of the rising sun. I know what you’re thinking Tsuyoshi Shinjo, Kaz Matsui, Masato Yoshii, Takashi Kashiwada, Shingo Takatsu… AHHHHH! Stop it you’re killing me! Okay, so we all know the Mets have never hit lotto when it comes to these Japanese players, but don’t blame the players, blame [...]
The Boston Globe is reporting that 11 current free agents have been notified that they were implicated in the soon to be released Mitchell Report. Player agents who attended yesterday’s union meeting in New York were told that 11 current free agent players are named in the George Mitchell report on the use of performance-enhancing drugs in baseball, which could come out sometime around the first of the year, and that all 11 players have [...]
Last night Omar Minaya and Indians general manager, Mark Shapiro, had dinner together. This is only speculation, but Newsday writer, Ken Davidoff, believed that maybe they were discussing left-hand pitcher Cliff Lee. Lee was coming off of two impressive seasons going into this year, but had a disastrous season that landed him back in AAA in 2007. Minaya already has a history with Cliff Lee that goes back to his days as the Expos’ GM. I don’t [...]
Not even a month after the World Series and the off season feels like it has been going on forever. It seems A- Rod has been opting out of his Yankees/Rangers deal since last April. Rumors are swirling left and right, who is going where, how and why. Personally, I love the business side of the game, not the number crunching mind you, but the excitement of free agent signings and blockbuster trades. Sadly, in [...]
It’s a done deal… Marlon Anderson is staying with the New York Mets, agreeing on Tuesday to a $2.2 million, two-year contract. Omar Minaya is making sure of one thing this off season as compared to last off season… he is making a strong effort to re-sign each Met that made a strong contribution to the team last season. After a week in which he brought back Moises Alou and Damion Easley, Omar continued that [...]
