It looks like we’re in for another bizarre season where much of the Mets talk will be centered on off the field issues rather than how well or how poorly the team is doing on the field. The news that the Wilpon family now wants to sell a minority stake in the Mets will take center stage as suitors begin to line up and take aim at an opportunity to become part owners of the […]
It looks like the Mets Hot Stove season has come to an official end. Yesterday during the press conference introducing Chin-Lung Hu to the media and fans, Sandy Alderson commented on the offseason moves and confirmed that the Mets were done making moves and they had accomplished all of their goals. “Actually, I feel pretty good about it,” Alderson said. “We’ve been able to address all of our needs. Hopefully, we’ve addressed those needs well. […]
According to Andy McCullough of The Ledger via twitter, Joan Santana has yet to begin throwing. To Sandy Alderson’s knowledge, Johan Santana has not begun throwing in his rehab program. Only last month during an interview on WFAN and then again during a conference call with Mets bloggers, Alderson said he expected Johan Santana to begin a throwing program in January and expected him back around the All Star break. With just a few days […]
Steve Popper of The Record, is reporting that Jason Pridie and Tobi Stoner both cleared waivers today and have been outrighted to Buffalo. Pridie has decided to accept the assignment instead of electing free agency. Stoner did not have a choice – he had to accept the assignment. Both players will be invited to attend Major League Spring Training camp.
Updated Post 7:45 PM How’s this for an update? According to a report by Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York, Darryl Strawberry has predicted that Wally Backman will be the next manager of the Mets. “Wally will be the next manager of the Mets, in my opinion,” Strawberry said. “I don’t have much say, but I thought he would’ve been the right choice for them. Not taking anything away from Terry [Collins]. He’s a great man and […]
Updated Post 1/25 2:00 PM Here is an update from Ben Nicholson-Smith of MLB Trade Rumors on the Albert Pujols situation. We last left off with Pujols essentially giving the Cardinals until the start of spring training to agree to an extension, otherwise he will end all negotiations and test free agency after the season. It seems that most MLB executives believe the Cards will get something done. MLB executives, owners and agents told ESPN.com’s Jayson Stark […]
Mets fans have had to endure a lot of heartache and grief in the last few seasons. As if one historic collapse in 2007 wasn’t bad enough, we followed it up with a less historic collapse in 2008, a season long episode of MASH in 2009, and all the drama, embarassment and comedy of a Paris Hilton movie in 2010. In the media, the mere mention of the Mets would conjure up terms like “what a joke”, “what […]
Updated Post 1/24 3:30 PM Anthony DiComo answered some questions in this weeks mailbag feature for Mets.com. He had some interesting things to say about Mets players who are out of options. Quite a few young Mets are out of options, actually, which should make for some interesting Spring Training competitions. Though the team recently signed Scott Hairston and Willie Harris to compete for backup outfield spots, fellow outfielders Nick Evans and Jason Pridie […]
I was amazed yesterday at the free agent signings of outfielders Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon by the Tampa Bay Rays. My first instinct was that they had gone bonkers, but it only took a few minutes to realize that both signings actually made good sense for the Rays who are still reeling from the losses of all-star outfielder Carl Crawford and the power hitting Carlos Pena. The price was right. Each of them agreed to one-year […]
