Here are the latest Mets Notes following the close of the 2011 Winter Meetings: Mets Considered Trading Bobby Parnell: According to Adam Rubin of ESPN, the Mets were contemplating trading 27-year old fireballer Bobby Parnell to an unknown team for a starting position player. Rubin said that Mets officials were “weighing the merits of the deal and there was no assurance they would pull the trigger.” After the acquisitions of Jon Rauch, Frank Francisco and Ramon […]
It is both incredible and disheartening to me how such a solid, promising ballclub has fallen to such a lowly state. A mere five seasons ago right now we all spoke of how bright the future is for the Mets; how we could be looking at a dynasty. Unfortunately, fast forward to the present, and we see a dynasty that never happened. Following their defeat in one the most exciting postseason series ever, the Mets […]
With Jose Reyes now taking his talents to South Beach, a question now rises; How do Mets fans respond to the sparkplug of Flushing jumping ship for the bigger and better? Is he the epitome of evil like Lebron James in Cleveland? Or simply a franchise player that was let go? Personally, I am going to go with the latter. Sandy Alderson was right in not offering the 28-year old speedster six years or more;his health is too much […]
Pending a routine physical, Jose Reyes will become the Miami Marlins’ new shortstop. Reyes and the Marlins agreed to terms on a six-year deal that will reportedly pay him $102 million, the largest contract the Marlins have ever given to a player. “Done deal,” said a source with knowledge of the agreement. Reyes, the National League batting champ last season with a .337 average with the Mets, agreed to join the Marlins after the team […]
Given the financial situation the Mets are currently in, holding on to a guy like Nick Evans should have been a no-brainer. Not only would Evans have been a quality bat and add much-needed depth to a very thin, not-so-Amazin’ roster, but come at a relatively inexpensive price. This 25-year old has been up and down from the minors so many times with the Mets that I don’t blame him for skipping town on the […]
After the severe lack of discipline that ran rampant throughout the clubhouse of Fenway Park, the Red Sox have now hired Bobby Valentine as their new skipper, replacing the passive Terry Francona. According to Gordon Edes of ESPN Boston, Valentine will be officially hired upon his return from Japan tomorrow. The beloved former Mets manager will bring a much needed leadership role to the squad and will not put up with any nonsense as seen throughout the month […]
The past year has solely revolved around Jose Reyes and whether he will return in 2012 or skip town for a big payday. Many people, myself included, have criticized Sandy Alderson and the Mets for not acting sooner to lock the all-star shortstop. But upon further review, I am not sure he is healthy enough to complete a 7, 6, 5 or even 4-year contract at the level we saw in the first half of 2011. […]
What has been a hot-button debate throughout the baseball world the past few weeks has now been settled: Justin Verlander is the MVP of the American League. The 27-year old Tiger’s ace now has an MVP trophy to put on his mantle along with his 2011 AL Cy-Young, four All-Star selections and the 2006 Rookie of the Year Award. Quickly becoming one of baseballs elite pitchers, this honor has put him on a level of […]
Being that we are in a “Met-conomic downturn” if you will, the coveted free agents this winter are nothing more than overpriced commodities the Mets can only stare agape at through a store window while other teams snatch them off the shelves. Instead, the Amazin’s are forced to look in the “Clearance Sale” bin and try to find a nice bargain. Here are some of those who I think could be a nice, economy fit […]
