On family vacations when I was younger, — be it at Disneyworld, Washington D.C., or Busch Gardens — my family would always argue where to go first, how much time we would have to do this or that, etc. The debates would end with my dad, declaring “I have a plan.”, and that would settle the bickering. The way he said it made it sound as if he had spent hours online researching the best […]
Yesterday, Clayton did a nice job digging up as many Hall of Fame ballots as he could to put together a sneak preview of what we could expect on Wednesday when the BBWAA will announce who will be inducted into Cooperstown. With about 12% of all the ballots in, it looks like Mike Piazza will not have nearly enough votes to make the Class of 2013, and in fact the data shows that only second […]
The Mets should be adding an outfielder in the coming days tweets Mike Puma of the New York Post. Puma doesn’t specify a name or whether the acquisition will be via free agency or trade, however Puma offers us two clues. One, is that the front office has been “working on something” and two, that this mystery outfielder has not been linked to the Mets. If this is true, than the particular acquisition that Puma is referring to would most […]
According to Jon Heyman via twitter, Mets catcher Mike Nickeas will be the third player included in the deal that will send R.A. Dickey and Josh Thole to Toronto that recently became official with Dickey’s passing his physical. The Mets will receive 18-year old outfielder Wuilmer Becerra as the fourth player involved in the deal. Heyman describes Becerra as “a prospect but aways away and nowhere near the level of the other 2 prospects the Mets got.” Becerra […]
Amid the trade rumors swirling around Metsville, Ken Davidoff of the NY Post had a scathing column today which took shots at reigning NL Cy Young Award winner R.A. Dickey’s personality and presence in the clubhouse. This past week at Citi Field, R.A. Dickey broke character — as one of Santa’s elves, at a Mets holiday party centered around young victims of Hurricane Sandy — to show his true character. All about himself once again, […]
According to Ken Rosenthal, signs are pointing towards R.A. Dickey being traded, he reports via twitter. The Mets and Dickey’s inability to come to an agreement on a contract extension and that 1-year, $5 million deal for 2013 is beginning to look a lot more attractive to teams who missed out on the likes of Zack Greinke, James Shields and now Anibal Sanchez. The Mets are currently at a standstill with R.A. Dickey on contract talks. Dickey […]
Finally! After months and months of rumors, figures, opinions and speculation, the Mets all-star third baseman David Wright has now signed a longterm deal with the Amazin’s that will bring him through his age-37 season. The new deal is reportedly worth $122 million over seven years. With his $16 million option picked up earlier this month, the contract will be for a grand total of eight-years and $138 million, making it the largest contract in franchise history, […]
Update at 3:55 PM on 11/29 Andy Martino of the Daily News commented on the Wright negotiations earlier today via Twitter: “Wright deal could get done with one more conversation, but my guess — just a guess, not sourced — is that his camp will wait a few days.” Update at 9:20am on 11/29: The Mets have offered Wright an 8-year, $140 million dollar deal says Andy Martino of the Daily News. That offer includes his 2013 […]
