Corine Gatti of AHN has some new information about former Brewers ace, Ben Sheets. Sheets’ agent Casey Close said that his client is returning. “We have already heard from a number of teams inquiring about Ben’s health and availability for 2010,” Close told ESPN.com Friday. “I will tell you that he has a very good chance to be one of the most impactful free agents, without question.” The New York Yankees, New York Mets and Los […]
Deal with it Mets fans. They say where there’s smoke there’s fire, and right now there is an inferno raging where Luis Castillo is concerned. Debating whether Luis Castillo should stay or go has been a fun and interesting exercise for Mets fans lately, but the fact of the matter is we have no say in determining Castillo’s home field next season. Those who do have a say have made it perfectly clear by their […]
The Rawlings Gold Glove Awards were announced today and unfortunately no Mets were honored for outstanding defense. David Wright who had won two straight gold glove awards in 2007 and 2008, was supplanted by Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals at third base. Wright committed 18 errors in 2009 and had the lowest range factors of his six year major league career. His UZR (-10.4) and UZR/150 (-12.2), two advanced fielding metrics, rank Wright as the worst defensive third […]
In the last five days, I hear the name of Randy Wolf more often when it comes to the Mets pursuit of a number two starter, than this years pick of the litter, John Lackey. Earlier today I posted about the Mets being concerned about the potential for an arm injury with regard to John Lackey, which you can read in the post below this one. Last week, Randy Wolf’s name came up when Jon Heyman reported […]
Is your head spinning yet? We live in the age of the 24 hour news cycle thanks to the internet, but somehow when it comes to the hot stove season, it’s more like a 24 minute news cycle. Case in point, the Matt Holliday rumors. Everyone who has an inkling, a feeling or a thought on the Holliday situation keeps adding to the suffocating cycle and viral onslaught of baseless information that contradicts itself from minute to […]
According to a tweet from Joel Sherman of the NY Post, Mets general manager Omar Minaya is meeting with Scott Boras tonight. I would assume this is simply just one of thirty such “meet and eats” Boras will be having this month as most teams attempt to get a handle on what they might expect this offseason, as well as letting Boras know which of his many clients they may have interest in. Here are […]
Last month, during a much ballyhooed appearance with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Omar Minaya and Jeff Wilpon seemed to indicate that the Mets would be major players in the free agent market this winter. They stated that their the top targets would be a number two starting pitcher and a big time power hitter. (Their words, not mine.) They also made it clear that money was not an object and that Omar Minaya was free to […]
The Mets would love to have Matt Holliday penciled into their Opening Day lineup next season, but the question is; Does Matt Holliday want to play for the Mets? According to Ken Davidoff of Newsday, he has a source who has told him that Matt Holliday’s top two choices in free agency are the Yankees and the Mets, in that order. When that Davidoff wrote that blurb about Holliday wanting to come to NY, Joe D. wrote the following, […]
There was a flurry of minor moves yesterday regarding the Mets, as the free agent filing period continues to move forward. Former Mets who have officially filed now include Brian Schneider, Carlos Delgado, Alex Cora and Ramon Martinez. I believe that out of that group, at least one of them stands a good chance of returning next season. Delgado and Schneider will both be playing for new teams next season. Schneider has his sights set […]
