Dizzy with Hope: Amazin (s’) Power Projections for 2010 Now that the ridiculous talk of winning the World Series in 2010 has started, why not speculate about one stat that can be a fairly important contributing factor that helps a team get to that greatest of sports’ stages, the home run. Given my sterling track record for home run predictions (Sure, bring on the wisecracks and insults!), I cannot prevent giddiness from getting the better […]
Mets fans, you may have gotten your wish. According to Jon Heyman of SI, and coupled with multiple reports over the past few days to verify, it appears that Rod Barajas may accept the low-ball figure from the Mets. It is a minor league deal for about $1MM dollars. Of course, if accepted, Barajas is a near-lock for the starting job with Blanco, Coste, and Santos behind him (probably in that order). If this deal […]
“For my best friend, who loves Jake despite his low OBP, his iron glove, and his obsession with his hair. Thanks for always being there for me Pam, the way you wish Jake would be for your fantasy team.” Said by Amanda Cornoyer – The sponsor of Mike Jacobs’s Baseball Reference Page I am admittedly a fan obsessed with Daniel Murphy. You all know that I really want this kid to succeed with the New […]
I knew I wanted to write something about the Mets’ starting rotation after reading an article in The Sporting News about the Mets being one of this off-season’s “losers,” citing the fact that they did not address the “gaping holes” in the starting pitching rotation. Well, yeah, but we are likely going to go into the 2010 season with a starting staff of Johan Santana, John Maine, Mike Pelfrey, Ollie Perez and Fernando Nieve. And […]
In a season where major and significant moves are few and a regular season here before you know it, I am inclined to be more “open” to any potential move that will help. If the offseason just started, I probably wouldn’t consider it as priority but now, well you know, it’s wise to consider any help. The rotation is always tantamount to a successful season so Mets fans, I give you….drum roll please……Yuniesky Maya. Now […]
Pitchers and catchers are arriving in Port St. Lucie, workouts will be starting shortly and soon exhibition games will be played in Florida. The Mets will be trying to erase the 2009 season and focus on winning in 2010. There a lot of question marks coming into the 2010 season for the Mets such as their rotation after Johan Santana, Daniel Murphy’s ability to be a productive 1st baseman both offensively and defensively, Luis Castillo […]
Mets’ imported arms, Ryota Igarashi and Hisanori Takahashi threw bullpens Monday, within hours of their arrivals. Igarashi is locked into the bullpen since he has a two-year major-league deal. He will be pairing with the over-worked lefty “Perpetual” Pedro Feliciano for the set up job. Takahashi, who spent 10 seasons with the Yomiuri Giants in Japan, is a lefthander on a minor-league contract, trying to get on the roster as the fifth starter—which he feels […]
As we inch closer to spring training and pitchers, catchers, and position players reporting to camp, Mets fans shake off the jitters about all that has or has not happened and now start looking at the two P’s: The actual product and the potential. I can only speak for myself, but I love baseball and the excitement is unparalleled in any other sport out there. The smell of the grass, the food in the air […]
Former Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado isn’t retiring, but you may not find him on anybody’s roster come Opening Day. The first baseman’s agent, David Sloane, tells Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports that Delgado will not be accepting any of the offers that are currently available to him, some of which are major league deals. “Delgado does not plan on retiring. Instead, he’ll wait for an opportunity to open up. When that happens, Carlos will […]
