Happy (almost) New Year fellow Mets fans! I hope you all had a great Christmas, Hanukah, Kwanzaa or a mix of all three. As usual, gifts were plentiful under the tree but sadly scarce at Shea stadium. Since fresh topics are about as rare as Christmas hams this time of year, I figured I’d just jot down some random thoughts on the Amazins’ possible 2008 rotation. Most of us have been begging Omar to go out [...]
Fred Wilpon – I promise to spend every red cent from the 20-30% increase in ticket prices, and add it to the team’s payroll budget so that Omar can go out and sign the best free agents available. I will enable Omar to have the same financial freedom as his Yankees counterpart, Brian Cashman. I will also use a portion of that money to relocate the Homerun Apple to the new Citi Field. Omar Minaya – In 2008 I [...]
While rumors are swirling about the Mets actually being in the Johan Santana race, I don’t want to give up the New Orleans Zephyrs to ultimately spend $200 million on Santana. Sorry ’bout that. I want Carlos Gomez; we’d be unstoppable when it comes to stealing bases. I want Philip Humber; we haven’t really seen much of him but I could see him as either a future starter or a long reliever. I want Mike Pelfrey; [...]
All off season long, we kept hearing about how there was so little interest in any Mets prospects. Less than a month ago we even traded our one time jewel of the system, Lastings Milledge, for a couple of serviceable players who are what they are. We are being told that the Mets do not have the prospects to make a deal for a pitcher like Erik Bedard or Johan Santana, and yet both pitchers [...]
It’s hard to believe that 2007 is finally coming to a close. Not only did "Your Season" not come, but it looks like for most of us, "our off season" hasn’t come either. Now that we are only days away from the official start to 2008 everyone seems to be getting a little retrospective this time of the year. I came across a pretty good article by Marty Noble on Mets.com yesterday that seems to [...]
We all know that one day in the near future David Wright will be named captain of the New York Mets. It may be in two years or it may even take three years, but it’s going to happen. I think it should happen now… maybe in spring training before the team heads up north to embark on the new season. It’s not that I want to rush the process, but after a disastrous end [...]
Yesterday I affirmed my belief that the Mets are the team to beat in 2008. Despite all the negativity that has arisen from the lack of adding a top starter, I still believe that the Mets will in fact win the National League East and go to the post season with a drive and burning desire to win it all. I have many reasons to back up my claim, and I have already explained one [...]
In the past two months it seems that every Mets post on every Mets site has to do with pitching. I understand why Mets fans are so concerned when you consider the myriad of questions in our rotation as currently configured. Despite what some consider to be a flawed rotation, I still believe the Mets will win the division with the current cast of players. I believe the Mets will be a far greater offensive [...]
MLB.com is reporting that the Seattle Mariners have in fact signed free agent pitcher Carlos Silva to a 4-year, $44 million dollar contract. The 28 year old pitcher has a career record of 55-46 with a career ERA of 4.31, and has proven to be a solid innings eater. He pitched six or more innings in 24 of his 33 starts last season. Of the few free agent pitchers the Mets were rumored to be interested [...]
