Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com is reporting that the Mets reportedly will not pay the next starter they sign more than 1.5 million guaranteed dollars, which is what the Mets gave Chris Capuano. This has not been confirmed by any means, but if this is indeed true, I would now cross Jeff Francis off the list as far as a possible signing for the Mets because its been said that Jeff Francis wants around $3 million. If [...]
Well, its that time of year again. Its time to decide who was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Its that time of year where we argue, dispute, and elect those worthy of joining the best of the best, of all baseball players in the Hall of Fame. The BBWAA announced today (drum roll please….) that they elected Roberto Alomar and Bert Blyleven to the Baseball Hall of Fame. Both are joining former GM [...]
According to SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt via twitter, the Mets have signed Chris Capuano to a 1-year deal. Capuano went 4-4, with 54 K’s, and a 3.95 ERA for the Brewers in 2010. Recently, Rising Apple discussed Chris Capuano as an option for the Mets in the back of the rotation. The Mets, as we all know, need someone to help out in the back of the roation especially as Johan Santana continues his rehab from [...]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com, sources have told him that Wally Backman, who was a finalist for the Mets managers job, is expected to be named the manager of the Binghamton Mets. After Terry Collins was named manager, Wally Backman told The Bergen Record that he was “disappointed and devastated” that he wasn’t named manager. With this move, former Met Tim Teufel is now expected to be named manager of the Buffalo Bisons, according to [...]
Oliver Perez is no stranger to days off. As we all know, the Mets would not use Oliver Perez out of the bullpen a lot during the season, thus giving him plenty of time off to ponder his predicament. It appears the Los Tomateros de Culiacan are taking the same approach with Oliver Perez, as the Amazin’s did. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports that after a “12-day layoff”, Oliver Perez finally got a chance to pitch. Last [...]
According to SI.com’s Jon Heyman, the Mets are interested in Freddy Garcia, and have asked for his medical records. The Mets signed Garcia in 2009 on a minor league deal, but was not selected to the opening day roster and was released. I managed to take a look at Freddy Garcia’s stats, which actually were a surprise to me. Garcia went 12-6 with the White Sox, but had a mediocre ERA at 4.64. As far as signing Freddy Garcia [...]
As the Mets search for starting pitching continues, one pitcher they’ve spoken to has apparently come close to making a decision. According to the Denver Post, former Rockies pitcher Jeff Francis is close to making a decision. The Mets have been interested in Francis, and are waiting to see if they were the team Francis wants to play for in 2011. Last month, Tracy Ringolsby of FoxSports.com was reporting that the Mets offered Jeff Francis a [...]
According to Drew Silva of HardballTalk (NBCSports), Omar Minaya is reportedly going to talk to Sandal Alderson about a role in the organization. Omar Minaya reportedly has an offer on the table from the Diamondbacks about joining their organization. Last month, Sandy Alderson told SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt during Terry Collins introductory press conference that he won’t rush Omar Minaya into making a decision because Omar is deciding whether or not he would feel comfortable with a role in the [...]
I just saw this on the latest Inside Edition and thought I would raise this particular question here. As we all know, the Yankees lost out on their prized offseason “possession” Cliff Lee to those damn Phillies, deciding to take $50 million dollars less than what the Yankees offered (which was a 6-year $140-160 million dollar deal). Now, one of the questions being raised since the news first was reported is; Was the incident involving Cliff Lee’s wife at Yankee [...]
I thought I would share this with our readers. I think that Sandy Alderson has now got to be the most public GM (as far as speaking directly to the fans) the Mets have ever had. It’s great that he wants to hear from the fans. Its makes us feel that he listens, and that the Mets do indeed care about their fans. Anyway, on Monday December 13th, Sandy Alderson will be doing a webcast LIVE [...]
Sandy Alderson came into the Winter Meetings having said that he will come out of the Winer Meetings with players. Not big-splash, franchise players but just players to help fill the Mets roster. He did just that today. As my colleagues Hojo’s Mojo, and Craig Lerner reported earlier, The Mets signed catcher Ronny Paulino to a 1-year, $1.3 million contract, and reliever D.J Carrasco to a 2-year, $2.5 million deal. The Mets have said they need a [...]
