According to Jon Heyman from CBS Sports, the Red Sox could have some serious interest in the Mets’ Ike Davis should he be available this offseason. The Red Sox will be looking for a first baseman this winter, Heyman writes, after sending Adrian Gonzalez to the Dodgers in late August and seeing placeholder James Loney continue to struggle offensively. Ike Davis has recently been a hot subject in the New York sports circuit and mostly for the speculation that he could be […]
Anthony DiComo of Mets.com, posted about Scott Hairston before the weekend who told him that where he signs after this season will be dependent upon getting more playing time. Scott Hairston started his 10th consecutive game in the outfield Sunday, a notable feat. Signed last winter to serve as a right-handed bench bat and platoon outfielder, Hairston has played nearly every day down the stretch and will finish with close to 400 plate appearances, his […]
Should the Mets trade Jonathon Niese? I don’t know why MetsBlog keeps putting this out there every month, but the answer is the same as it’s always been and that is NO. I just don’t understand this fascination they have with this silly and somewhat ignorant discussion. If the goal is to build from within, than why would you ever consider trading one of your homegrown pitchers, and one that has exceeded expectations, for more […]
In front of a modest sized gathering at Citi Field, Keith Hernandez carried through on his promise and shaved his famous mustache in front of the Home Run Apple all in the name of charity. The entire event was webcast on SNY.tv and Ted Berg gave the blow-by-blow as one by one his whiskers were carefully trimmed and shaved away. In less than seven minutes, gone was the symbol that the American Mustache Institute dubbed the […]
Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, spoke with an American League executive who gave him his predictions on what the top ten free agents could get this winter. 1. Josh Hamilton, Rangers OF (Prediction: $150 million, five years) That $30-million-a-year guarantee would represent a record, eclipsing Alex Rodriguez‘s $275 million, 10-year contract (though A-Rod also has $30 million in historic homer bonuses). Considering the talent, that guess may not be too far off. Hamilton is said to want to be […]
B.J Upton is going to be one busy and popular player this winter. The enigmatic former #2 overall pick in the 2002 draft has done some impressive things in his career, but most view his career as disappointing when compared to his incredible all-around talent and tools. “He’s in the top 10 of center fielders in the game,” an American League executive said. “That’s pretty good. But people were probably expecting him to be in […]
Before the game last night, Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that he would like Kelly Shoppach to return to the Mets next season. According to Collins, Shoppach has a sharp defensive game and he credits him for how he’s handled the pitching staff, particularly getting them to pitch inside more. Shoppach, who turns 33 next Spring, is a career .228 hitter, but has enjoyed some moderate success since the Mets acquired him, batting .255 with […]
The Mets lost again last night, succumbing to the Washington Nationals by a score of 5-3. One night after being mathematically eliminated form winning the NL East, they established a new franchise record for the longest home streak of scoring three or fewer runs per game. The last time the Mets scored more than three runs at home was over a month ago on August 12 in a 6-5 win against the Braves. They beat the […]
