On January 14th, 2008, the Mets family lost right-handed pitcher Don Cardwell. Don was instrumental in helping the Mets win the division in 1969 when the Miracle Mets went on to win the World Series. During that all important stretch run when the Mets were battling the Chicago Cubs for first place, Cardwell stepped up and delivered five straight wins for the Mets and helped the Mets clinch the division. Although, he wasn’t the most […]
The recent outrageous spending spree by the New York Yankees, has livened up the decades old debate of whether or not there should be a salary cap in baseball. I haven’t really weighed in on the hotly debated subject myself, but now would be as good a time as any. For as long as I can remember, the Yankees have always been hated by millions of baseball fans and even a few dozen rival GM’s as […]
Adam Rubin of the Daily News has been covering the Mets since 2003. He also writes extensively about the Mets minor league prospects for Baseball America. For the third straight year, he takes some time to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. Please check out his blog, Surfing The Mets for the latest Mets news. 1. I really loved your piece on Wilmer Flores the other day. My first question focuses on the […]
Merry Christmas everyone. I’m away until tomorrow but thought I’d check in on my trusty laptop, which is never too far away. It looks like things progressed somewhat between the Mets and Derek Lowe on Wednesday, but as of this morning still no deal. ESPN’s Buster Olney believes it will happen sometime between now and New Years day. Cafardo from the Boston Globe has some numbers he believes are being exchanged. The deal is believed […]
“Tickets are too expensive.” “The Mets are not thinking about families.” “Those prices are outrageous.” Those are the number one complaints that I get from Mets fans every time I write about tickets. To be honest, I think people are in an uproar over nothing. The Mets have taken every step to try to keep prices as low as possible for everyone. The only thing I can ask is, have you really checked out the […]
It’s going to be a long day on Christmas when I’m sitting around with my family who are all Yankee fans. My one cousin who is a Mets fan, won’t even be with us this year so that means I have to brave the gloating by myself. I know there are a few people who are already waiting for me to say just one wrong word before they pounce on me for insinuating that the Mets are […]
When the Mets decided to cut ties with Paul Lo Duca last season, and then ship off prized prospect, Lastings Milledge for Brian Schneider and Ryan Church, none of us really knew what to expect. As it turned out, both Milledge and Lo Duca would have made little if any impact on the Mets anyway. But, the whole point of those moves was to finally get a catcher who would do defensively what no Mets […]
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the Mets, are now attempting to sign free-agent right-hander Tim Redding, according to his major-league sources. Redding, 30, is seeking a two-year contract, and in 33 starts last season, he was 10-11 with a 4.95 ERA. Rosenthal also believes that the Mets will still sign either Derek Lowe or Oliver Perez, in addition to Redding. On Saturday, the Daily News quoted Redding’s agent who said the following, “The Mets are very […]
Here is the latest entry of the Mets Top Prospects list, this one comes from Minor League guru, John Sickels of Minor League Ball. I find it interesting how the one common factor in all of these lists is that Brad Holt has moved into the top five. The other thing is how each list flip-flops between Wilmer Flores and Fernando Martinez in the top spot. I don’t understand why Reese Havens is ranked […]
