David Wright has been the subject of trade rumors since last season. Over the past few years we keep hearing how he is not the same player he used to be. When you really sit down and look at it, is he really that far off from what he was a couple of seasons ago? If you really look at his career, yes he has taken a downturn over the past few seasons, but not […]
The Mets are reportedly considering outfielder Kirk Nieuwenhuis for a spot on the opening day roster according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. If he makes the club out of Spring Training it will be in a bench role as an extra outfielder. The Mets are intrigued by Nieuwenhuis, but would prefer that he gets regular at-bats, meaning he would start the season in Triple-A. If he makes the club he would mainly be […]
Yesterday manager Terry Collins put together lineups for an intrasquad game that featured some of the promising young prospects in the Mets farm system. It was interesting and exciting to see all of the young players in camp playing against one another as they look to showcase their talent before being sent back to minors camp. Some of the notable players that played in the game were Wilmer Flores, Cesar Puello, Matt Den Dekker, Juan Lagares and […]
Ken Davidoff reports that the Mets continue to keep tabs on starter Chris Young. He is seeking a Major League deal, although Mets prefer a minor league deal. I just don’t see the point in having him return. He didn’t pitch for the majority of the last season and missed almost the entire season in 2010. Yeah I get that he pitched well in the beginning of last season for us, but it was only for 5 […]
The biggest and most notable additions to the 2012 Mets roster were added to the bullpen this off season by GM Sandy Alderson. The void Krod left was much larger than Sandy originally anticipated, especially when players like Jason Isringhausen and Bobby Parnell failed to get the job done with any type of consistency what so ever. The big additions were to back end of the Pen. Frank Francisco was added on a two year deal worth $12 million, John Rauch […]
With Spring Training right around the corner it’s time to start to get into the baseball spirit. Even though it appears we are not going to be contending for a title this season, there is still plenty to be excited about. There is always the outside chance that we make it interesting and contend for the second wild card spot. For that to potentially happen things need to break right for us and players need to step […]
With the Nationals acquisition of Edwin Jackson yesterday, we need to start seriously considering them as legitimate contenders to not only have a good season, but to potentially win the NL East or at minimum steal a wild card berth. With their off season additions the Nationals will have a very well rounded and talented starting rotation. A rotation of Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Edwin Jackson, Jordan Zimmermann and John Lannan spells trouble for NL East and the rest of the National […]
Last season I thought I knew what was going to happen. I figured we probably would not be in contention for a playoff spot, but I was excited about the possibility of reloading at the trade deadline. We had guys like Beltran, Reyes, Dickey, Izzy, Hairston, Byrdak and Krod. All of whom I felt had the potential to bring back something from a team in contention who wanted to bolster their starting staff, bullpen, lineup […]
The big three pitching prospects that we have looming down in the minors gives me an eerily familiar feeling. Haven’t we heard this before? Does “Generation K” and the names of Jason Isringhausen, Bill Pulsipher and Paul Wilson ring a bell? This was supposed to be our home grown trio of Superstars in the 90′s. These were the guys who were supposed lead us to a World Series title. Sadly that never happened. By the time Piazza led the Mets to […]
