Updated Post 9:00 PM I hate to break this to you, but sadly right-hander Rodrigo Lopez has agreed to sign a minor league contract with the Atlanta Braves. <sniff> <sniff> By the way, reliever Elmer Dessens told the Mets he wanted to come back on a minor league deal. They told him to take hike and that they were moving in another direction. In parts of two seasons with the Mets, Dessens went 4-2 with a 2.71 [...]
Before i go on with the post, i want to apologize for not posting a lot this week. I am currently recovering from a severe case of strep throat, so it hasn’t been a good week for me. John Maine was one of the Mets top starters heading into 2010, behind Johan, and Mike Pelfrey. But, during the middle of the season, John Maine started having issues. Not just with injuries, but with Jerry Manuel. [...]
Last night at the BBWAA dinner in New York City, R.A. Dickey accepted the “You’ve Gotta Have Heart” award. New manager Terry Collins presented Dickey with the award. R.A. Dickey was the perfect choice for this award. I say this because of the fact that in May when he got called up, no one expected much in the way of performance, but a couple of months and 10 wins later… Dickey is now being counted on to be one of the [...]
We all know who Troy Aikman is. Aikman was an superstar quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys back in the 90′s, and would eventually go on to be enshrined in the Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. We also know Troy Aikman as being a dancer on the hit ABC show “Dancing With The Stars”. But, little did we know, he was pursued by the Mets. Say what?! Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com posted a short, but interesting [...]
Updated 9:10 PM Terry Collins confirmed today that the Mets have no intentions of cutting Luis Castillo or Oliver Perez and that both will get a chance to win spots on the roster no different than any other players in camp. Collins also added that Castillo could still very well win the everyday second base job in spring training. Original Post 1/18 10:00 PM According to MetsBlog.com’s Matthew Cerrone, there is a possibility that Luis [...]
As our own Hojo’s Mojo reported earlier this afternoon, Chris Young and the Mets have agreed to a deal, thus ending weeks of speculation of where and when he will sign. It has taken the Mets and Chris Young forever, it seems like, to sign a deal. But in the end, the signing will benefit the Mets. Even with all the injuries, Chris Young has proved that, when healthy, he can be a great starter. Padres Manager Bud [...]
We are almost a month away from spring training, and already we are getting some information about the new Mets lineup for this season. Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com says that Terry Collins has confirmed what appears to be his new lineup for the Mets to the New York Post. Well, almost. The reason why I say almost, is because the winner in the battle for catcher and 2nd base will hold the last two spots [...]
The Cincinatti Reds were one of baseball’s surprising teams this past season. No one expected them to go out there every night and contend with the St. Louis Cardinals for the NL Central division title. Joey Votto was a key factor in the Reds first division title in 15 years. Because of his contributions offensively and defensively, He was named NL MVP over Carlos Gonzalez and Albert Pujols. Now that arbitration is apon us, it appears Joey Votto got a huge reward [...]
Updated January 15th, 8:55AM EST Sources tell MLB.com’s William Ladson that the report saying the Nationals are interested in Chris Young are “not true”. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Nationals were the other team, besides the Mets, who are interested in Chris Youngs services. This means the Mets are the lone wolf in the running for Chris Young. Or is there a yet unknown team in the mix that is keeping this marriage from going through? Original Post [...]
