It seems that the Mets are still in play for starting pitcher Chris Young and that he is very close to making a decision as posted yesterday by my colleague Brandon Butler. Chris Young would be a nice addition for the Mets and if we do get him he instantly becomes the biggest acquisition of the Mets offseason and probably the first player that fans didn’t have to look up on google to figure out who he was. […]
Beloved Met (I actually call him Mr. Met), Ed Kranepool spoke about the Mets yesterday in an article I came across by Laurel Pfahler of TC Palm, she discusses expectations for the Mets with Ed Charles, Ed Kranepool and other former Mets who are at Mets Fantasy Camp down at Port St. Lucie. They talk about how prior to the 1969 season, there were never any expectations for the team because they never had a winning […]
There is still plenty of offseason left and yesterday in an interview with Adam Rubin, Sandy Alderson said he still intends to focus on acquiring another starter, a reliever, and a 4th or 5th outfielder. Although, most of these following names may be a little to rich for the Mets taste, here is a list of the top ten remaining free agents as compiled by MLB Trade Rumors: 1. Rafael Soriano - The Yankees might be in, […]
Mets prospect RHP Dylan Owen is on a major roll as he continues to dominate in the Puerto Rican Winter League. After pitching seven hitless innings in a combined no-hitter in his last start for Criollos de Caguas, Owen came right back with another strong performance on Friday. Owen did not give up a hit in the first two innings of his next start essentially giving him nine consecutive no-hit innings over his last two starts. He […]
ESPN’s Buster Olney had some Mets information in his ESPN Insider column today, Heard this: Among the possible moves that the Mets have discussed internally is simply releasing Luis Castillo, the second baseman who they have tried and failed repeatedly to trade. Castillo is about to enter Year No. 4 of a four-year, $24 million deal, and he is owed $6 million for 2011. Castillo, 35, posted a .604 OPS in 2011, which ranked 291st […]
In 2007 and again in 2008, the Mets missed clinching a playoff berth by just one game. No matter which team it is or even which sport, missing the playoffs by one game in back to back years is not a comfortable place to be. As the Mets enter into a new era with a brand new philosophy based on tried and true principles, lets hope that it never happens again. That said, I wonder […]
Newly enshrined Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar was in New York yesterday and spoke with reporters about a variety of things including his struggles during his time with the Mets. Dan Martin of the NY Post clues us in on what he said, particularly addressing the notion that he didn’t give his best effort with the Mets. “I didn’t think so. Maybe the expectations I had for myself were too big. I didn’t play the way I wanted […]
Today is the big day when the new class of Hall of Famers will be announced sometime around 1:00 PM EST. I say Hall of Famers, but my gut tells me only one player will be elected today; Roberto Alomar. Of course Alomar should have gotten in last year, but he fell a few votes short. This time he should get in with a solid majority. Unfortunately, other deserving players like Bert Blyleven, Jeff Bagwell and […]
One of the figures who played a primary role in establishing the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York was Ford C. Frick. Frick was baseball’s third commissioner, but is most remembered as the one responsible for ordering an asterisk to be placed next to Roger Maris’ single season home run record. In 1970, he was elected to the Hall of Fame himself, and even had an award named after him which is given annually to one of baseball’s revered broadcasters. Mets […]
