Pete asks: Now that David Wright will be our third baseman until 2020, what is the future of third base prospect Wilmer Flores? Do you think he’ll be moved to the outfield, or will he be traded? Sean Kenny replies: First – Wilmer Flores and outfield should not be mentioned in the same sentence unless it is at the end of the statement “Wilmer Flores with a hard hit into”. Flores does not possess the foot speed […]
Wex asks: Do you think Ruben Tejada will still be the everyday shortstop in 2015? The reason I ask is the Mets drafted Gavin Cecchini one year after they went way over slot on Phillip Evans. They also signed the top Dominican shortstop Germán Ahmed Rosario in July for a record setting bonus. All these moves don’t seem to bode well for Ruben Tejada who has been holding his own at 22 years old and […]
On Monday all 30 GMs, along with a handful of players, agents, and other baseball folks, will all come together in R.A. Dickey’s hometown of Nashville, TN for the Winter Meetings. Personally, this is one of my favorite weeks in all of baseball. This is when the Hot Stove really gets cooking, so all you crabby Mets fans who keep complaining the front office isn’t doing anything can stop whining now (if the David Wright extension wasn’t […]
Hey guys, do you think the Mets are looking to upgrade at catcher this offseason? I mean, I haven’t heard any rumors at all and I just had this crazy idea that it might make sense for them to look into it. Okay, so I’m just joshing you. Obviously this has been a big topic since the season ended for the Mets almost two months ago. There have been many names thrown around and a […]
JetsMets13 asks: I read that the Mets will be re-opening their Gulf Coast affiliate for the 2013 season. I was wondering why they would do that after shutting down operations for only one year. The more I thought about it I wondered if closing that affiliate is why they were unable to sign half of their draft last June. It seemed like last season the Mets were using their minor league DL to store players […]
As reported by Adam Rubin Of ESPN NY, Tim Byrdak will be signing a minor-league deal with the Mets for 2013 While a bit of an odd move considering Byrdak just had surgery on a torn anterior capsule and the recovery time is over a year, the Mets may just be looking to add some depth that may be able to contribute to some extent for the 2013 season. This may be something that is […]
BTF asks… Maybe you could clear something up for me. Can somebody please tell me what the heck we are doing about the outfield now that Bay is gone? Is Kirk Nieuwenhuis really the answer at center field? What can we expect from him? Is Den Dekker even in the team photo anymore? Sean replies… The 2013 Mets outfield is more of a mystery now that Bay has “parted ways” with the Mets. But it […]
The Mets have signed 30 year old IF/OF Brian Bixler to a Minor League contract with an invitation to Spring Training. The Mets made the announcement via Twitter. Bixler hit .193 in 88 at-bats for the Houston Astros in 2012. He has a career batting average of .189, with 3 HR, and 14 RBI in four years with the Astros, Pittsburgh Pirates, and Washington Nationals. This past season he appeared in 36 games for the […]
On Wednesday, I suggested the Mets should not trade one of their starting pitchers for offensive help this winter. Today, I offer an alternative: Melky Cabrera. According to reports, the Mets have not expressed interest in Cabrera to date. However, I feel they should have a change of heart and go after the controversial outfielder. Before his 50 game suspension in August for testing positive for testosterone, Cabrera was on pace to receive a multi-year […]
