Following 2012, the Binghamton Mets will be but a distant memory, says the Ottawa Citizen. The Double-A club is being purchased by Beacon Sports Capital Partners and will move to Ottawa after calling Binghamton home since 1992. This however, does not mean the Mets would have a minor league baseball in Canada. With their contract expiring with Binghamton after 2012, the squad would likely join the Toronto Blue Jays organization; putting the Amazin’s in the market […]
Mets GM Sandy Alderson has now joined twitter. You can follow him at @MetsGM. The 64-year old has nearly 10,000 followers overnight after only posting two tweets. He now joins the likes of Justin Turner, Johan Santana and R.A. Dickey as Mets who are on twitter. I personally think this is great. Now fans can directly contact Alderson and voice their opinion. Chances are he won’t respond to the majority of them, but being able […]
Before you start to jump all over me on this, I am not by any means saying that David Wright is on Frank Robinson’s level. Robinson is one of the best hitters of all time, Wright is trying to get his career back on track. Though with all of the trade rumors surrounding Wright going into 2012, I was reminded of the infamous trade of Robinson to the Orioles on the premise that his best […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Major League Baseball has approved a plan for playoffs to expand this year. The new format will include an additional Wild Card team in each league. The two Wild Cards in each league will square off in a one game playoff to determine who moves on face the division winner with best record that season. The league will make an official announcement tomorrow. Original Post 1/28 According to the […]
With Prince Fielder taking off for the Motor City, he becomes yet another premiere first baseman to leave the National League. Fielder now joins the likes of Albert Pujols and Adrian Gonzalez –to name a few– to leave for the AL in recent years. This leaves only Joey Votto, Lance Berkman and Ryan Howard as proven elite first baseman in the NL. Now 2012 will give this crop of young, talented men patrolling first, a […]
The Red Sox have agreed to a one-year contract with free-agent Cody Ross. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports first reported the signing and Gordon Edes of ESPN reports the deal is worth $3 million with built in performance incentives. The Mets pulled out of the running when it became apparent Ross wasn’t going to sign anything close to what the Mets were offering. Last season with the San Francisco Giants, Ross played all three outfield […]
Thoughts from Joe D. The Rockies remain strongly interested in the Mets’ Justin Turner, writes Troy Renck this morning in his column for the Denver Post. The Rockies could still move Eric Young Jr. because of a crowded outfield situation with as many as four players competing for reserve spots, including Charlie Blackmon, Eric Young Jr., Tyler Colvin and Jamie Hoffman. Young, 26, is a .246 hitter with 48 stolen bases over parts of three […]
After posing this question via twitter, a debate ensued between myself and several Met bloggers including our own Joe D. and Brandon Butler. I thought I would ask the MMO faithful this same query: Would you do anything to sign Josh Hamilton next winter? Even if it meant losing David Wright? Personally, I think it is something to consider. Now that the Rangers have inked Japanese fireballer Yu Darvish to a major contract, the chances […]
Despite being adamant about his retirement following the the 2012 regular season, we learned yesterday that Bud Selig will receive at least two-year extension as Commissioner. Knowing that Selig will do –and to this point has done– everything in his power to keep the Wilpons as owners, this is disheartening news. This indirectly cripples the Mets financially for another two years. Even if the Wilpon’s do get investors, they will not attain anything close to […]
