On Monday, an Associated Press report by Ronald Blum revealed that the average annual salary for major league baseball players rose from $2,930,000 to $2,996,000. Although the 2.4% increase in salary represents the smallest rise in player wages since 2004, the stage has now been set for next year being the first season in which the average major league baseball player will earn $3 million. The figures for each team were calculated by taking the […]
Winter season is fast approaching. Soon, most Mets fans living in the New York metropolitan area will be dealing with bone-chilling temperatures, exorbitant heating bills and slush that chews up and spits out the best winter boots. So this is as good a time as any to think warm thoughts. Think about palm trees swaying in the breeze as you achieve the perfect tan with a cool drink by your side on a pristine beach. […]

Back in August, the Mets celebrated the 40th anniversary of their 1969 World Championship team. Players such as Tom Seaver, Jerry Koosman and Nolan Ryan returned for the on-field celebration while wearing their 1969 home jerseys. As long-time Mets fans know, these jerseys were not the white jerseys we’ve become used to seeing. They were cream colored. About seven weeks ago, I wrote this post about the Mets considering some changes to their home jerseys […]
John Lackey? Roy Halladay? Both are All-Star caliber pitchers. Both could elevate the Mets to the level where we expect them to be. Signing Lackey and trading for Halladay would look lovely, but we know that’s not happening. After all, the Wilpons are our owners. Acquiring one of the two appears to be the more likely scenario. As Joe D stated in a blog earlier today, John Lackey might be the wiser choice because he […]
With numerous holes to fill, the Mets have decided to address their bullpen first. However, they’re not talking about adding another lefty to assist Perpetual Pedro Feliciano or a set-up man for Francisco Rodriguez. Instead, the issues with the bullpen being addressed are where each bullpen will be located at Citi Field in 2010. In his blog for the Star-Ledger today, Brian Costa reported that the bullpens at Citi Field are being restructured so that […]
Earlier today, my esteemed colleague, Mr. HoJo’s Mojo wrote about this year’s National League Gold Glove recipients. As he reported, no Mets players had their gloves touched by King Midas. That means the picture to the left will not be repeated at Citi Field next season. Carlos Beltran was not expected to win the Gold Glove because he missed half of the 2009 season. But what about David Wright? Didn’t he hit well enough to […]
Carlos Beltran has always been a soft-spoken leader, preferring to lead by example rather than through rah-rah histrionics. Throughout his career, he has been a player that has done everything well on the field. He can hit for average (.325 in 2009, career .283 hitter), hit for power (franchise record-tying 41 HR in 2006), steal bases (286 SB in his career) and play a Gold Glove caliber center field. He lets his talent do the […]
When Julio Franco was a Met, he vowed to play until he was 50. That didn’t happen, but the way Omar Minaya has put this team together, the Mets might have a few AARP members before too long. When the 2009 season began, more than half of the 25-man roster (13 players in all) was on the wrong side of age 30. Of those 13 players, only three of them made it out of the […]
