The righthander agreed to a minor-league deal with the Mets tonight, the Daily News has learned. It’s believed he can earn as much as $8 million to $9 million if he makes the team and reaches all of his incentives. Nice signing for the Mets, especially if Garcia returns to his pre-injury form. It’s […]
Earlier today, the Mets today officially announced the signing of infielder Alex Cora to a $2 million dollar, one-year contract. Cora gives the Mets a solid backup shortstop and second baseman whoc could even step in and start should Luis Castillo falter. Omar Minaya was all smiles as he made the announcement and said, “You win championships with a 25-man roster. Alex Cora has been an integral part of teams that have been to the postseason […]
ESPN’s Keith Law recently released his Top 100 Prospects list and ranked Mets outfielder Fernando Martinez at number sixteen. Martinez’s big issue is staying healthy; he has yet to reach 400 plate appearances or play in 100 games during any of his pro seasons, excluding winter ball. This is a shame, because Martinez has a special bat and the injuries plus some aggressive promotions have obscured it. Martinez offers huge power potential, putting on a […]
According to Mets.com, Mets right-hander Nelson Figueroa (Mets) didn’t surrender a hit over nine innings for the Cardenales. He fanned 10 and allowed a hit and a walk over nine-plus frames en route to the victory. Entering the 10th inning with a 1-0 lead, Figueroa gave up a single to center field to Zulia’s Alberto Callaspo (Royals). Geez… Even when a Mets pitcher throws nine hitless innings, he still can’t get a no-hitter… Not even in […]
Carlos Beltran, spoke to Daily News writer Christian Red, and I’m diggin’ what he’s sayin… To begin, Beltran weighed in on the recent comments made by Cole Hamels who said the Mets are choke artists. “I just have to say, the Phillies did play well. They were champions last year. This year is a new year. I still believe we have a great team. If he says those words – when you say words like […]

Here’s some good news from Eddie Coleman at WFAN: Spoke with Billy Wagner today. I’m sure he’s a distant memory to most Met fans since the acquisitions of K-Rod and Putz, but Wagner is doing well and progressing ahead of schedule. He’s been working out three times a week, strengthening his elbow and shoulder in his native Virginia, and he’s very close to throwing again. Coleman also adds that the timetable for his return could […]
One of the more prominent movies of the new year stars Brad Pitt, and is about an old man who gets younger through the years instead of older. Sort of like what happened to Carlos Delgado right around the All Star break last season. Even before the injuries took their toll on Carlos Delgado, the decline began after the 2005 season when he hit .301 for The Marlins, followed by .265 in ’06, .258 in ’07 […]
