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 […]
According to Jon Heyman, the Mets have made it clear to second baseman David Eckstein that they are not interested in his services. This is not surprising given the fact that the Mets are itching to dump Castillo, one of the few players with almost the exact same type of play as Eckstein. Both of them have absolutely no power, are past their prime and hold little offensive value anymore. Their only major offensive upside is that both […]
Hey everyone! Here is the Morning Grind! While the back end of the rotation is somewhat up in the air the leading contenders appear to be newly acquired arms Chris Young and Chris Capuano. Chris Young seems to be a lock for the fourth spot but why is Capuano considered the leading man for the fifth? With a year of transition on the horizon and fixing the mess of the former regime, why not give the young guy, in this […]
With the Pujols and the Cardinals miles apart and their set deadline fast approaching, it appears the 3-time MVP will hit the free-agent market following the completion of the 2011 season. With many teams interested in arguably the best player in baseball, the market will likely become an all out frenzy to acquire Pujols. One of these teams could be the Mets, but their current financial state puts them at an early disadvantage. If the Wilpons successfully […]
Hey everyone! Here is this week’s Morning Grind: Mets Sign Casey Fossum Normally when I see that Alderson signed an under-the-radar type player, I look at almost every stat I can find. Alderson is about finding a cheap, one-tool player than a type-A free agent, four or five tool players for many more years and tens of millions more. But Fossum is not even a one-tool player, I do not understand this signing what-so-ever. He has little experience versus the […]
When we tune into a baseball game, watching the game itself is only half of the story. We watch countless games day in and day out in hope of witnessing a truly historic baseball moment that will be revered and held close to our hearts for the rest of our lives. One aspect of these moments that seals the true amazement in our minds every time we think of them are the announcers that broadcast the event as it unfolds […]
The franchise of the Mets, David Wright has become somewhat underrated in the baseball world. Ever since his less than dazzling 2009 campaign, Wright has not been held in the same high regard as he once was. Granted he has not been as good as 2007 and 2008, Wright is due a little more credit than he has gotten. First of all, Wright is in the biggest pitchers ballpark in all of baseball. I can recall […]
Nearly forty seven years ago Johnny Callison hit a walk off home run in the 1964 All-Star Game at Shea Stadium, that being the first and only time the Mets in their 49-year history would host an All-Star Game. Now in 2011, Sports Illustrated and sources close to Jon Heyman are reporting that the New York Mets will host the All-Star Game. The report is unconfirmed by MLB but many sources close to the situation […]
Here’s a few things that really caught me off guard this week: Jeff Francoeur Takes Dig At Citi Field Former Mets right fielder Jeff Francoeur during an interview in Kansas City decided to take an opportunity to rip on Citi Field. Francoeur, whose tenure with the Mets consisted of parts of the past two seasons, when asked about the new ballpark stated that “Citi Field…Is a joke”. He recalled his inability to hit home runs there and that it is […]
