Mets outfielder Jordany Valdespin is tweeting photos of himself on his twitter account. This particular pic of him sporting a Miami Marlins cap is drawing harsh criticism from the Mets fan base this morning. Valdespin, who was recently suspended for insubordination while playing Winter Ball, has become a magnet for controversy. Despite his talent, the Mets may have to weigh whether or not he is worth the trouble he seems to create for himself on a much […]
Jordany Valdespin had a two-week absence from playing for his winter-ball club in the Dominican Republic because of a team-imposed suspension for insubordination, two sources told ESPN New York. The discipline issue was comparable to the maturity problems the Mets have experienced with Valdespin over the years, one source said. Adam Rubin adds that it’s not beyond the realm of possibility for him to get traded this offseason, but that the problem is other teams are well […]
Let me begin by saying that for the last nine years, David Wright has not had a bigger defender than me. He’s the best all-around position player ever to come through the Mets system and his impact on this franchise cannot be overstated. Already a holder of more than a dozen Mets franchise records, Wright now has an opportunity to add an exclamation point to his Mets legacy if he can lead the team to […]
Last month, the New York Mets announced that they were bringing back their Gulf Coast League affiliate that ceased operations a year ago due to financial difficulties. Today, some more news regarding the team’s Minor League Operations… The New York Mets announced that they will directly manage the Kingsport Mets (Appalachian League) business and facilities operations at Hunter Wright Stadium. Mets Director of Florida Operations Paul Taglieri, in conjunction with Mets Vice President of Facilities Karl […]
I’m busy working on MMO’s official Mets Top 25 Prospects list. I should start rolling it out in reverse order beginning next week. As I near the completion of all my research and start to fit in all the pieces of the puzzle as best as I can, I’m finding it so interesting to see how much things have changed from just one year ago. So many prospects have fallen out off last year’s Top 25, while […]
Jayson Stark of ESPN is hearing from several clubs who are telling him they don’t believe that R.A. Dickey is really on the market — yet. The Mets have listened to offers on him since the GM meetings. But teams that kicked those tires came away with the impression the Mets still prefer to sign him, and are just lining up trade options in case those talks fall apart. Sounds like the Mets might have just […]
I was reading MetsBlog’s take by Matt Cerrone on why he feels the Mets should jump on the recently released Chone Figgins. Figgins was pretty terrible last season. I’m talking Jason Bay-level terrible. He was no better in 2011. To be an upgrade for the Mets, he wouldn’t even have to be close to what he did 2009. I mean, his 2007, 2008 would be a significant upgrade, frankly. So, I expect teams to be […]
I used to love checking out those polls they frequently conduct at MetsBlog and always enjoyed reading the results. But in the last two years, the majority vote seems to mirror the same opinions of the MetsBlog team. I find their poll results being too predictable now, and I think it’s because readers have more choices with new Mets sites sprouting up all the time. We love to visit the sites we like and mostly agree […]
Free agent outfielder Torii Hunter agreed Wednesday to a two-year, $26-million contract with the defending American League champion Detroit Tigers. The deal is expected to be announced after he takes a physical examination Friday. Hunter, 37, batted a career-high .313 last season. He hit .350 after the All-Star break, leading the Angels’ spirited but futile bid for a playoff berth. The Angels declined to present Hunter with a qualifying offer for one year at $13 million, thus forfeiting the […]
