Last week during the baseball’s Winter Meeting’s news surfaced that the Mets were guaging interest in Jon Niese. At a time when players like Gio Gonzalez are being heavily sought after in a weak LHP market, Niese could prove valuable. One of the teams believed to be interested is the Toronto Blue Jays. And why wouldn’t they be? They’ve got ton’s of competition in a strong AL East. A LHP like Niese to fit behind […]
For the last few week’s i’ve been mentally preparing myself for the inevitable fate that Jose Reyes would sign with the Miami Marlins. As much as I tried to stay as optimistic as I could, realistically I knew the team was moving in a different direction. This regime will not give 6 year contracts to players with an injury riddled past as grey as Reyes. Some Mets fan’s will kick and scream and demand the […]
A couple of days ago Metsblog’s Matt Cerrone shared what he has heard regarding the teams plans for Angel Pagan. As many of you already know Pagan is a non-tender candidate this off-season. However many NY Beat Writers have already put out stories that the team plans to tender Pagan a contract for 2012. Cerrone reports that the talk around the team is that the Mets would like to tender him a contract, then trade […]
Today’s rumor mill is spinning regarding the Mets plan’s to pursue Jose Reyes. According to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, the Mets front office plans to let the market set itself for Reyes. Sandy Alderson knows Reyes wants to test the free agent waters. It would be stupid to make an offer now. The Mets WILL SPEND to bring Reyes back. But WHY would Sandy Alderson make a huge offer now before […]
This is all HYPOTHETICAL (for all those reading impaired individuals) Albert Pujols is one of the best, if not THE BEST, hitter our generation has ever seen. I completely expect the Cardinals to re-sign Albert Pujols to a contract worth over $200 million for 7-8 years. Let’s get a little hypothetical on this dark and rain-soaked afternoon. ——————————————————————————————————————————— For one minute let’s pretend Albert Pujols and his agent reached out to all major league teams. […]
Recently Doc Gooden sat down with ESPN E:60 to discuss his career and life around Baseball. In the interview Gooden admitted to being “too high” to make it to the 1986 World Championship parade in New York City. He discussed his addiction to Cocaine during the illustrious 86′ season as well as the “paranoia” that would set in from his drug use. Gooden told E:60 that the night the Mets won the World Series he […]
* UPDATED POST Here’s a early look at some of MLB’s Top Free Agents entering the off-season… 1. Albert Pujols 1B – Cardinals – He was never leaving St. Louis in my opinion. They were never going to let him walk away. He’s arguably the greatest player in franchise history and will be paid as so. 2. C.C. Sabathia SP – Yankees – Almost guaranteed to opt out of his contract at this point. Reports are […]
Sandy Alderson has been very adamant that he will sign a free agent closer this off-season to fill the void left by Francisco Rodriguez. Who that closer will be is the big question. You can pretty much cross Heath Bell off the list. Francisco Rodriguez is an extreme long shot as well. And that’s not because the Mets wouldn’t be interested in bringing him back. It’s because he will command at least a 3 years […]
As many people have heard Angel Pagan is a prime Non-Tender candidate this offseason. Many people believe the Mets do not feel Pagan is worth what he may command in Arbitration. I recently suggested the Mets consider trading Daniel Murphy for B.J. Upton this offseason, which you can read here. If the Mets decide to go the Free Agent route for a CF this Winter options may be aplenty. Below I ranked these CF’s in […]
