Angel Pagan has been off to a dreadful start, and there is no debating that. Pagan has not only batted under .170 so far, but he has also lacked the clutch hitting that the Mets relied on so heavily last season. With such a slow start in 2011, it begs the question we are reluctant to ask: Was 2010 just a fluke for Pagan? In 2010, the 29-year old Puerto Rican native began the season as a 4th outfielder, a backup to Gary Matthews Jr. […]
In an error on the Mets emailing list, it stated that Willie Harris would have the start for the series opener versus LHP Wandy Rodriguez. This is not the case, Scott Hairston will get the start versus the Dominican hurler. At first this did not make sense because Hairston is an absolute monster versus Rodriguez. Hairston in his career has a .545 average (6-11) with two homers and three RBIs when facing the 32-year old southpaw. Hopefully Hairston’s prior success […]
Now this is complete speculation on my part but with all the trade rumors buzzing, especially after the Mets slow start, it hit me, why not trade Reyes to the Angels for speedster prospect Mike Trout? He would be absolutely perfect for Citi Field. He covers a lot of ground in the outfield, blazing speed and is only 19. Ever since the Angels let Chone Figgins walk in the 2009 off season, the Angels have […]
In mid-December, when the crosstown rival Yankees signed Mets’ lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano to a two year, $8 million deal, the front office was criticized for letting him walk. Now, roughly four months later, it is looking like quite the smart move by Sandy Alderson who elected to pass on Feliciano. Feliciano had experienced a sore tricep that put him on the DL at the start of the season. However, it wasn’t until Wednesday that an MRI revealed a torn […]
Here we are ladies and gents, the first regular season baseball game of 2011 for the Mets is finally upon us. Today will feature Mets interim ace Mike Pelfrey vs. Marlins stopper Josh Johnson. Tonight’s game in Florida I believe could go either way for the Mets For a few reasons: First off, this might become a bad way to start the season for Pelfrey given the fact that he has never had much success […]
As the Yankees take the field this afternoon and as Austin Jackson steps up to the plate, they will usher in a year that will leave behind the age of Ken Griffey Jr., Andy Pettitte and Trevor Hoffman and continue the new era of Jason Heyward, Buster Posey and Neftali Feliz. Never before has there been such a year of transition so clear that leaves the superstars of the past to the young promising talent of the future as there was […]
Former Mets second baseman, boy, does that feel great to say, Luis Castillo has been released for the second time this winter, this time being cut by the Phillies. Castillo, who was statistically one of the worst starting position players in the MLB last year, is now once again on the open market. Castillo was reportedly going to fill in while Chase Utley recovered from his knee ailment, but it appears another Mets cast off will […]
According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, The Phillies have agreed to sign Luis Castillo to a minor league contract. That’s right, Castillo will be playing for the enemy after being under team control since 2007. Castillo would likely fill the currently vacant spot while the ailing Chase Utley recuperates from his knee injury that will sideline him for an unknown amount of time. This news comes just two days after the Mets released the veteran infielder, to the delight of […]
As everyone knows, the second base job is wide open for the Mets in 2011, especially now that Luis Castillo has been released. The competition has seemingly been narrowed down to Daniel Murphy, Brad Emaus and Luis Hernandez. But arguably the hottest hitter on the Mets this spring has been left out of the discussion. Scott Hairston has been one of the hottest hitters in the game this spring, providing him basically a guaranteed spot on the roster come […]
