After reading the now daily updates on the trade market for free agent-to-be Carlos Beltran, I noticed that the Braves have been emerging as a very realistic suitor for the All-Star outfielder. With now 7-8 teams in the mix to acquire Beltran, this appears to be shaping up to become a deal similar to that of the Mariners/Rangers Cliff Lee trade before the 2010 trade deadline. The Mets have stated that they want a Grade A prospect in return for […]
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of speaking with Daily News writer Andy Martino. For those of you that do not know, Andy is a BBWAA member who does an exceptional job for Daily News as their Mets beat writer. He wrote for the Philadelphia Inquirer as the Phillies beat writer during the 2009 season before returning to the Daily News. Here are the highlights of our E-mail conversation: -Andy, after returning to the Mets after […]
Now that Francisco Rodriguez is off to Milwaukee, Sandy Alderson and the Mets have an extra $17.5 million off the books for next year. This trade is a great move by Alderson for just that very reason because now they can use that money for a more significant player, namely Jose Reyes. With Reyes’ impending free-agency on the horizon, most baseball insiders said that Reyes as a Met past 2011 was becoming increasingly unlikely due to the […]
Mets Legend and future Hall-of-Famer Mike Piazza managed the 2011 XM Futures Game, sporting a Mets cap, not a Dodgers. He also wore a Mets cap during last night’s All-Star Legends and Celebrities Softball game, not a Dodgers. A decision similar to this will have to be made in the coming future once Piazza is elected to Cooperstown, Mets cap or Dodgers? Now Piazza won’t be making this choice, the Baseball Writers Association of America will, but this topic has still been a highly debated […]
The New York Mets today announced the team has placed shortstop Jose Reyes on the 15-Day Disabled List, retroactive to July 3, with a strain of his left hamstring and selected the contract of infielder/outfielder Nick Evans from Buffalo (AAA) of the International League. Reyes, 28, suffered the injury running to first base in the first inning on July 2 vs. the Yankees. Evans, 25, was with the Mets earlier this season from May 18-June […]
Yesterday, Newsday’s national baseball writer Ken Davidoff was kind enough to do an email interview with me regarding several Mets topics as well as general MLB. Here are the highlights from our discussion: -You have written for high school sports, collegiate sports, the Mets and Yankees. What would you say has been your favorite topic to write about in your career? Definitely Major League Baseball. There’s just so much going on. I get to learn not only […]
Well Met fans, if you were looking for a true test of this 2011 Amazin’ ballclub, you’ve got one. Starting Thursday, the Mets will face some of the games best pitching for seven-straight ball games. They will face Clayton Kershaw, Ryan Vogelsong, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels over the next week. All seven were elected to the 2011 All-Star Game and now in seven consecutive contests, one of them will […]
With a Mets bullpen that has been consistently inconsistent since late May, blowing countless leads, letting close games get out of hand and collapsing when it counts most, the Amazin’s need some change in the pen. So when a veteran pitcher that was sent down to work on his stuff is dominating, you may want to consider making said change sooner than later. That veteran is Ryota Igarashi. The 32-year old Japanese native after a disappointing 2010 and […]
With all the news surrounding Jose Reyes and his incredible season that he is having, we often forget the main-man driving him in, Carlos Beltran. Beltran, after two injury-riddled seasons, was expected to have an above average season at best in 2011. But the 34-year old now right fielder has not only exceeded what anyone expected, but has been nearly the caliber of player as he was in his prime. Many predicted Beltran for 15-20 home runs and […]
