Teams Not Showing Interest In Ricciardi and DePo For GM Jobs

I was inspired to write my thoughts on something that has been like an itch I couldn’t reach on my back. You know what I mean? Aren’t those a real pain in the asterisk? I saw a post by Matt at MetsBlog that says Backman and Geren have not been mentioned in manager searches. (Yes, I know, it’s […]

MMO Mailbag: Should We Target Toronto’s Travis d’Arnaud?

We received this email from one of our readers, doekie. Let’s assume nothing will be done and the arbitration players will be back. Shoppach will be back and some kind of right handed OF.

2012 Mets Player Review: R.A. Dickey, RHP

R.A. DICKEY, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: R.A. Dickey had been a journeyman with a trick pitch his entire career, winning a career-high 11 games in 2010. Realistically, they had no right to expect more than that from him at age 37 and figured to be third or fourth in the rotation at best. Only injuries or poor […]

JOHAN SANTANA, LHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: The only thing the Mets knew for certain about Johan Santana heading into the season is they would pay him $24 million. Coming off shoulder surgery and not having started since Sept. 2, 2010, the most the Mets could hope for was for him to stay healthy and start at […]
