Jon Heyman of SI.com says that the Phillies, Mariners and Blue Jays have agreed to a deal that will send Halladay to Philadelphia, Cliff Lee to Seattle and prospects from both teams to Toronto. The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay is in Philadelphia and possibly negotiating a long term deal in anticipation of a blockbuster deal that will make Halladay a Phillie. Toronto Blue Jays pitcher Roy Halladay and his agent have […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports, free agent pitcher John Lackey may be close to signing a deal with the Boston Red Sox. He writes, Free-agent right-hander John Lackey underwent a physical Monday with the Red Sox, an indication that he is close to an agreement with the team, according to a major-league source. Rosenthal also speculates that the deal is expected to be similar to the five-year, $82.5 million contract that the Yankees awarded […]
Yesterday, I weighed in on two of Saturday’s non tender players; Jack Cust and Garrett Atkins. This morning, there are several new additions to the free agent market. The following players were non tendered by their former team before last nights midnight deadline. Matt Capps, RP – Capps would be an interesting reliever to consider for the Mets. Only 26 years old, it was surprising to see the Pirates let him go. After posting solid seasons for the Bucs in 07 […]
David Lennon of Newsday, tweets that the following players have been non-tendered by the Mets: OF Cory Sullivan OF Jeremy Reed RP Lance Broadway SP Tim Redding Nothing that wasn’t already expected there, but it’s worth noting that only Sean Green remains of the trade that sent “six players” to the Mariners and Indians in the J.J. Putz deal. Other Notable Non Tenders The Oakland A’s have non tendered outfielder Jack Cust. Cust has led the […]
Not looking to knock Mike Cameron who is a god among mere mortals in some circles, and is revered by so many Mets fans, but seriously can we stop the comparisons to Jason Bay already? Are players no longer to be valued for who they are but instead scrutinized endlessly and compared to players that they have nothing in common with? Is there nothing in the world of advanced metrics that bodes well for Jason […]
According to Tom Verducci of SI.com, the Phillies are emerging as the favorite to land Toronto ace Roy Halladay. “They’ve been very aggressive,” one baseball source said about the Phillies’ pursuit of Halladay. “They’re putting together a package, even if they need another team. They’re trying to find the players [on other teams] the Blue Jays want to get it done.” The Phillies, who already have the National League’s best offense, would arguably have the […]
I was surprised to see the following comment by Keith Law on ESPN’s Rumor Central (subscription only), regarding free agent outfielder Jason Bay. “Bay is the best overall hitter on the market this winter, with more offensive potential than Matt Holliday, but less defensive value. Bay is extremely patient and has shown he can hit American League pitching.” I disagree with Law and believe that Matt Holliday is the best overall hitter, but what the hell […]
As the final day of the Winter Meetings comes to a close, the Mets fly back to New York much like the same team that arrived on Sunday. Any and all dreams of blockbuster trades and big free agent signings slowly dissipate into the same pessimistic feelings we ended the season with. There will be no press conferences to announce a major signing like last year when the Mets made so much noise. Instead we […]
The Brewers have agreed to terms with Randy Wolf on a three-year, $29.75 million contract. The deal will be finalized pending a physical. The Mets had strong interest in the 33-year-old left-hander who made 34 starts and posted a 3.23 ERA and 1.10 WHIP for the Dodgers last season. According to AOL’s Ed Price via Twitter, the Mets “feel they are in contention” for free agent left fielder Jason Bay. They will have to fend off heavy interest from […]
