As you all know by now… BREAKING NEWS: Mets offer Lowe 3-Year Deal How dramatic indeed… While I’m glad that the Mets finally extended an offer to Derek Lowe, who I really believe is the best available remaining free agent pitcher, I am bothered by the fact that they low-balled him. Much has been made of the fact that Lowe was seeking a 5-year, $90 million dollar contract. Of course, there is no way he […]
According to Jack Curry of the New York Times, the Mets have offered Derek Lowe a three-year deal worth about $36 million. “The Mets have offered the free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe a three-year contract for about $36 million, according to people who have been briefed on the discussions.” Scott Boras did not comment specifically on the offer, but rather said, “Obviously, we’ve taken offers from a number of teams.” Boras said he was still in the […]
MLB.com is now confirming a story first reported by ESPN, that two Cuban players considered close to being big league ready have defected from Cuba. Reportedly, right-hander Yadel Marti, Cuba’s top pitcher in the 2006 World Baseball Classic, and outfielder Yasser Gomez defected for the Dominican Republic. Both players are expected to immediately pursue MLB careers, and each will be highly sought after. The following is a short bio on each player as provided by […]
As soon as the Dodgers decided to non-tender left handed reliever, Joe Beimel, I remember thinking to myself, this guy will be signed within a week. Wrong again… The 31 year old specialist had a solid season last year after posting a 2.02 ERA in 71 games. During the 2007 season, Beimel set a record for the Dodgers by making 83 appearances, the most by a left-handed pitcher in the Dodgers history. I took a […]
On Christmas Day, I wrote a blog that talked about the aftermath of the Mark Teixeira signing by the Yankees. I felt that it just might not be such a bad thing for Mets fans. Here is what I wrote in that blog post… I believe that the the Yankees signing of Mark Teixeira may put some added pressure on Omar Minaya to deliver more than he originally intended. It may not be far fetched […]
This morning, on his blog at ESPN.com, Buster Olney writes, The Mets also have quietly continued to gauge the market for Luis Castillo, and if they find a taker for at least some of his salary, that would leave them in position to pursue Orlando Hudson, who also is being courted by the Washington Nationals. This is about the fourth or fifth time I’ve read a rumor like this in the past month or so. It […]
On January 14th, 2008, the Mets family lost right-handed pitcher Don Cardwell. Don was instrumental in helping the Mets win the division in 1969 when the Miracle Mets went on to win the World Series. During that all important stretch run when the Mets were battling the Chicago Cubs for first place, Cardwell stepped up and delivered five straight wins for the Mets and helped the Mets clinch the division. Although, he wasn’t the most […]
The recent outrageous spending spree by the New York Yankees, has livened up the decades old debate of whether or not there should be a salary cap in baseball. I haven’t really weighed in on the hotly debated subject myself, but now would be as good a time as any. For as long as I can remember, the Yankees have always been hated by millions of baseball fans and even a few dozen rival GM’s as […]
