The Type A Free Agent compensation rules that have kept players like Juan Cruz and Orlando Cabrera from signing with teams this offseason may be changed. MLB and the Players Union have had discussions suggesting that Type A Free Agents may resign with their original clubs and waive the stipulation that they cannot be traded before June 15. In effect, borderline Type A Free Agents would then be a part of sign-and-trade deals. Teams have […]
Quite possibly! We’ve all been wondering who are the remaining 103 names on the steroid list that A-Rod was found on. Names are being thrown around left and right, including St. Louis Cardinals first baseman, Albert Pujols and former Mets catcher, Mike Piazza. Here’s a name that I never really thought about, but is being mentioned: Ivan “Pudge” Rodriguez. There’s an article done by the Associated Press which was posted on ESPN.com where it can […]
As the sun rises on Spring Training 2009, let’s see what is going on with the other teams in the NL East: Atlanta Braves: If there is a team looking to keep Ken Griffey Jr. from returning to Seattle, it could be the Atlanta Braves. They were considering Bobby Abreu before he signed with the Angels. They are looking for a veteran outfielder to split time in LF and to sign reasonably cheap. Griffey does […]
Last year marked Big Pelf’s first genuine MLB season. He pitched 200 innings, and I think he proved that he has the ability to be a top-quality hurler. I am not brimming with confidence about the 2009 Mets this spring unlike my attitude for the past two springs, which I’m guessing I share with the other millions of fans out there, but I am excited and expectant over Mike P. At the risk of preaching […]
Here’s my serious problem with the media. They go to everybody for an opinion about a topic. Why go to David Wright and ask him about the A-Rod and his drug issues? Wright is a member of the New York Mets. It is not his problem. If you cannot get Derek Jeter to talk about it until next week Tuesday, that is your own problem. Do not bring the Yankees problems to the Mets. It […]
Yesterday, in Jeff Passan’s column on Yahoo Sports, he previewed the NL East and was very honest, saying the Mets should have blown up the whole team and started over again before beginning anew in Citi Field. That’s because choking down the stretch two years running leaves scars on a team’s collective ego. Yes, that’s an exaggeration, and while I don’t think Omar Minaya made enough moves (yet) to avoid another disappointing season, it’s something […]
I know with this post I’m not going to be very popular with our readers. I was adamant this whole off-season of unloading Luis Castillo and signing Orlando Hudson. After last season I didn’t want Luis Castillo anywhere near this team and was hoping against hope that the Mets would trade him or outright release him. Having said that I have come to accept the fact that Luis Castillo will be our everyday second baseman […]
The Performance enhancing beast does not go away. Former all-star shortstop of the Houston Astros, Miguel Tejada is expected to plead guilty in court to charges that he lied to the House Oversight Committee about knowledge that another teammate with the Oakland A’s used steroids. The alleged infraction happened in 2005 when he was called to speak in front of the House. The FBI also believes that he purchased HGH from the same teammate […]
Imagine a clear, blue summer day. The sun is shining brightly and you are on your way out the door to see a baseball game. Upon arriving to the stadium, the only thing you hear is dead silence. There are no other fans walking around. No children excited to see their favorite baseball players. No sounds of the crack of the bats during warm-ups. Nothing! Just silence! Then you suddenly remember what happened. The Players […]
