Last night, when I first heard about the seven-year, $126 million deal that Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals, it was so hard to digest the news because it seemed so unbelievable to me. Somehow, somebody just reported some bad information and the news spread like wildfire, I thought. What could Mike Rizzo and the Nationals be thinking? Have they ever heard of a thing called park effects and how it can change the dynamics of […]
I thought this was so funny, that I had to share with you guys. Sandy Alderson arrived in Orlando only a couple of hours ago. When he heard about the mega-deal Jayson Werth signed with Nationals, he was taken by surprise. “It makes some of our contracts look pretty good,” Alderson said. “That’s a long time and a lot of money. I thought they were trying to reduce the deficit in Washington.” I’m so glad that […]

I’m talking about the business, marketing and promotional side of things. This could include anything ranging from a new addition to the Mets Museum, special Mets promotions and merchandise give-aways, and even baseball card show or promotional appearances by any of the players. I will try to do a […]
This afternoon, Mets GM Sandy Alderson spoke with reporters as he and his team readies themselves for the Winter Meetings which begin on Monday. Regarding the Winter Meetings, Alderson said the following: “I can guarantee you, we’ll come back with some good players. I can’t guarantee how high-profile they will be. Or how many. If nothing else, we’ll pick in the Rule 5 draft, just to say we brought a player back.” Alderson also touched […]

Today is ”Non-Tender Day,” and by midnight tonight, the free agent pool is expected to get a little bigger. Here is an interesting spattering of players who are each expected to be non-tendered by Thursday’s deadline as presented by Doug Miller of MLB.com. J.J. Hardy, SS, Twins: Rumored to be a non-tender candidate all season, Hardy’s prospects of being offered a 2011 contract by Minnesota seemed to take a hit when it was revealed last week that the Twins […]
Isn’t it amazing how quickly October has turned to November, and now November turns to December? Believe it or not, just one week from today, the 2010 Winter Meetings will commence in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. and run from December 6-9. By then, we’ll know whether Pedro Feliciano will still be toiling in our bullpen in 2011, or if we need to add a lefty specialist to our very long offseason shopping list. Using the […]
