Today, Sandy Alderson did a live chat on Mets.com taking questions from fans through Twitter. I decided to give it a shot, so I asked Sandy if it was possible that Zack Wheeler could be called up to the team come the All-Star break? Much to my surprise, he answered, and as you’ll see in the video below, it was the first question he answered.. According to Alderson, it’s very possible that the Mets’ top [...]
With spring training almost a month away, the Mets are running out of time to fill voids left in the outfield, bullpen and starting rotation. Andy McCullough of the Newark Star-Ledger reported this morning that the Mets and Carl Pavano are in preliminary discussions on a potential deal, and that the interest is mutual. A lot of fans are probably not thrilled that the Mets are looking at the former Yankee to fill the void in the [...]
I am very happy that David Wright will be a New York Met for the rest of his playing days. For a while I was quite skeptical that a deal would materialize, considering all the inaccuracies and inconsistencies that were being reported by sources. But the two sides worked diligently through the night until the wee hours of the morning to come to an agreement before the Winter Meetings kickoff in Nashville on Sunday. In that sense, we [...]
As we all know, 2012 was once again another season of disappointment. I frown just thinking about it. But regardless of what happened this season, there were some positive moments that we can look back on years from now. Not only did the Mets finally get their first no-hitter this year, but they also got one of the best pitching performances in the last 20 years from a knuckleballer they call R.A Dickey. If anyone [...]
I can remember when I heard about R.A Dickey being called up to the Mets. When I heard the news, it felt like an ordinary call-up. Nobody knew who this guy was and I felt that he was going to be a short-term option in the rotation. Little did I know, Dickey would go on to become one of the league’s best starting pitchers two years after his call-up to the team. R.A currently leads [...]
When Kirk Nieuwenhuis was called up on April 7th, I’m sure a lot of people weren’t expecting Captain Kirk to have an major impact on the team going forward into the season. Guess what? He has. Luckily, he has done all that and more for the Amazin’s. Not only has Nieuwenhuis provided the Mets with some key hits offensively, but his defensive ability has really shined and boosted the Mets outfield defensive alignment. With Jason Bay set to be [...]
After the Mets lost another frustrating game against the Marlins today, Terry Collins spoke about the possibility of removing Frank Francisco from the closer role. “We’ll address it. I have eight options. But, I’m not going to address that right now, when emotions are running high.” Before I get into the whole Frank Francisco situation, I am impressed with how Terry Collins spoke openly about removing the right-hander from the closer role. He spoke from [...]
The Mets suffered a huge blow to the starting rotation when it was learned that Mike Pelfrey would be out for the remainder of the season (and a good chunk of next season) due to a partial tear of his UCL (Ulnar Collateral Ligament) in his pitching elbow. Because of the tear, Pelfrey is now having Tommy John Surgery and will require a full year to recover before beginning rehab. With Pelfrey out, the Mets called up [...]
Before Opening Day, there was a ton of negativity surrounding the Mets. Regardless of the positive resolution to the Madoff lawsuit, fans and the media alike continued to be negative about the team and the Wilpons. With the team now going into their second series of the season against the Nationals, Mets fans actually have something to be very happy about. The Mets swept all three games against their division rivals, the Atlanta Braves. Guys [...]
As we all know, David Wright’s contract technically ends this year (However, there is a option for 2013). Speaking of Wright’s contract, Mike Puma of the New York Post spoke with Nationals 3rd Basemen Ryan Zimmerman about Wright’s contract with the Mets. Zimmerman told Puma that the Mets should resign David Wright. “He enjoys being here. They gave him an opportunity, and anytime you’re a loyal person like he is, anyone who gives you an [...]
Before yesterdays outing against the Detroit Tigers, Mets fans alike were seeing a healthy Johan Santana coming back strong and healthy. His stats from his first two outings were telling us that things were going well and maybe we might soon see the Santana of old (calm, cool, and dominant). In his first two starts of the spring, Santana had a 0.00 ERA with 2 K’s, and a WHIP of 1.07 in a combined 4.2 [...]
