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 […]
Update 12/9/10: According to Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog, Moises Alou declined the Mets offer to join their coaching staff. Update 12/8/10: According to Adam Rubin, despite what Kevin Burkhardt said, a team source told him that the Mets are not considering Moises Alou for the 1B coaching position. I guess i was partially on the money with a guess. According to Kevin Burkhardt of SNY, the Mets are interested in having Moises Alou as a […]
As we all know by now, Hisanori Takahashi signed with the Angels, Sean Green was non-tendered, and Pedro Feliciano, whom many thought would accept the Mets arbitration, declined it. Now, with these three officially out, should the Mets worry about the bullpen heading into spring training? Honestly, I believe so. This definitely concerns me because we have very little experience in the bullpen now that these guys are no longer on the team. With the current […]
We all know Bobby Ojeda for two things. One, he was a member of the 1986 World Champion Mets. Two, he has done an excellent job as an analyst for SNY. According to Andrew Fegyveresi, VP of Communications for SNY, Bob Ojeda is getting a new deal from SNY to stay on as an analyst. Thats not all that surprising to me. I’ve watched alot of him during the season and loved to hear him talk about all the […]
I thought this was interesting to share. Most of you still remember Kaz Matsui. Since leaving Japan, he’s already moved three times, first to the Mets, then to the Rockies, and finally to the Astros. He finished the 2010 season in the Astros’ minor league system after being waived by them in May, and is now a free agent. If reports are correct, it appears that Matsui will leave MLB and return back to his home country of Japan to play […]
