In a press release, the Mets have announced the signing of catcher Shawn Riggans to a minor league contract with an invite to spring training. Riggans had a rough 2009, hitting .143 in seven major league games with Tampa Bay, and posting just a .233/.298/.314 line in three minor league stops. Clearly, his right shoulder tendinitis played a role. As recently as 2007, he posted strong minor league numbers, but there is little reason to […]
As we get closer to going into full gear for Spring Training, every Met fan has to wonder what will become of our quest for 2010. I am under the belief that we will be competitive despite how things look outwardly with on the field personnel and the much bandied about organizational stuff. Multiple media reports speculate that the Mets are done spending, as if to imply that the well is essentially dry. Being the […]
Ken Rosenthal and John Morosi wrote yesterday for FoxSports.com, that the Mets are out of money. This comes after Buster Onley of ESPN made a similar claim. I do think the Mets may not have had as much money to spend this off season as they did in the past, but I’m not buying that they are suddenly “out of money”. The Mets have are set to pay newly acquired Jason Bay eight million dollars […]
Any day now, pitchers and catchers will begin reporting to spring training all across Florida and Arizona. In a few weeks, all teams, including our Mets, will begin their spring training games, and then less than two months from now, Johan Santana will likely be throwing the first live pitch for the Mets since last October. Usually around this time of year, once the Super Bowl has been played and sports docket is less than […]
Mets.com has reported that one of the most beloved Mets in history is back with the organization in a full-time capacity. The Mets announced Monday that Mookie Wilson has accepted a position as the organization’s Minor League outfield and baserunning coordinator. Wilson was last with the club as manager of Class A Brooklyn in 2005. “It’s good to be back,” Wilson said in a statement. ”This is where I started, and I’m anxious to do whatever […]
It’s a foregone conclusion that Jerry Manuel is on the “Flushing short term managerial plan”. It’s hard to not like Jerry. He came off as personable, insightful, and easygoing when he first stepped into his predecessor Willie Randolph’s shoes. His dubious exodus from New York sent a message to me that things were about to change and that nothing is what it appears. Last year, many of the blogs were filled with “Fire Jerry” chants and mantras on practically every […]
Spring Training is upon us, and as pitchers and catchers are getting ready to report to Port St. Lucie, I just don’t feel any excitement so far. Usually at this time of year I’m looking forward to Spring Training and the upcoming baseball season, but so far I don’t feel any the usual excitement and anticipation stirring inside me. 2009 was just awful to be a fan of the New York Mets. Injuries and incompetence ran rampant and by […]
If one plans to fail, there’s no easier route to get there than by failing to plan… To the many fans of the Orange and Blue, and bloggers and journalists in general, this topic may be coming too early to garner discussion or deep consideration. I am a planner and if I was anticipating every possible angle to make enough improvements this year for a beleaguered Mets franchise, it’s not hard to see where to first focus my […]
I am a passenger on the Daniel Murphy bandwagon. I’ve been defending Daniel all winter and will continue doing so. Whether you agree or not, see the writing on the wall. Murphy will be the Mets starting 1st baseman this year. My prediction is that Daniel will prove his detractors wrong and have a breakout season in 2010. In January at the Mets seasons ticket holders get-together at CitiField I had the pleasure to meet […]
