There appears to be a gap between how the Mets value R.A. Dickey and how other teams value him. Hey, that’s how the game is played. Now, with Shields and Greinke gone, the Mets would appear to be in a stronger position. Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has asked for such a large package of prospects that some executives have wondered how serious he is about trading him. On the other hand, Alderson has said […]
It’s my first morning back home after spending three days in Saratoga, NY where some of my family resides and where we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s always nice when the entire family gets together again for those 2-3 occasions a year where we eat, have fun, and catch up with everyone on everything. I come from a family whose loyalties are evenly divided at 50/50 when it comes to being a Mets or Yankees fan, and for […]
According to multiple sources, Juan Pierre has agreed to a one-year, $1.6 million contract. The 35-year-old outfielder will be making his second stint with the organization, offering veteran leadership, a tremendous work ethic and speed. Pierre appeared in 130 games with the Phillies in 2012, batting .307 with 37 stolen bases. Entering his 14th big league season, Pierre previously was with the Marlins in 2003-05. He set the franchise single-season stolen-base record of 65 in […]
David Schoenfield posted his ten worst contracts in baseball on ESPN.com. 1. Alex Rodriguez, 10 years, $275 million: Hey, it’s worth keeping in mind that the Yankees wouldn’t have won the 2009 World Series without A-Rod’s monster postseason — six homers, 18 RBIs in 15 games. Was that worth $275 million? Considering he still has five years and $114 million left in salary (plus potential bonus payments for reaching home-run milestones), I would say this […]
The other day I was reading a post by Joe D. who made it crystal clear that the Mets will not be making any significant changes via free agency. The already limited flexibility will be furthered by raises to arbitration eligibles like Daniel Murphy, Bobby Parnell and Ike Davis. If Sandy Alderson meant it when he promised wholesale changes, it’s abundantly clear that it will have to come from working the phones and making some […]
Check out the latest poll results from MetsBlog on where his readership voted on the question of Are the Mets are headed in the Right or Wrong Direction: If there was an option that said “Not Sure” that’s what I would have chosen. Maybe that’s why he only got 2,600 people to vote instead of his usual 5K+. I also suspect that those who were unsure and voted, gave the team the benefit of the […]
I saw a link on MetsBlog that sent me through a wormhole and I ended up in the realm of Amazin Avenue where I discovered a post that asked: Who Was The Most Patient Hitter In 2012? If you click the title you can read the entire article in it’s full context, but I was vastly curious as to finding out who the answer to that question was. I was placing my bets on David Wright, […]
Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, reported on Thursday that the Arizona Diamondbacks are weighing whether Jason Kubel or Gerardo Parra is a better fit as their everyday left fielder in 2012, GM Kevin Towers said his team is looking for help at shortstop and third base this winter, and Towers said those decisions will affect the direction that Arizona takes in left field. “When you put a club together, it’s more of a puzzle,” Towers said. “What you do at […]
