Yesterday, Steve Popper of the Bergen Record was nice enough to answer a few questions for us. Steve covers the New York Mets for the Record and also has a great blog, Amazin’ Stories which I love to check out each day. Okay, here goes… JD – Before I throw some Mets related questions at you, I’ve noticed that you have been keeping a watchful eye on the latest round of steroids hearings on your blog. It […]
Last night I watched Mets Hot Stove Baseball on SNY and of course the topic of Johan Santana reared its little head. In a light-hearted moment, Kevin Burkhardt asked Ken Rosenthal to predict where the Johan Santana would end up when all was said and done. Here is what he said… "At the risk of ruining my perfect record, I am 0 for 12 so far with my predictions… I really believe that he ends […]
Carlos Delgado thought it would be easy to overcome a couple of off season surgeries, the birth of a new child and being the cleanup hitter for a team that was considered by many to be odds on favorite to become National League champs and compete in the 2007 World Series. He was expected to be the offensive catalyst that helped the Mets win the NL East in 2006. Back then, his powerful bat enabled […]
One of the nicer things the Mets have become known for are their annual goodwill trips to countries abroad to spread some cheer and develop new baseball fans around the world. Omar Minaya has just returned from this years visit to Israel, and I’m sure we will hear some details of the rip and get some nice photos from their goodwill tour soon. I think it’s an especially fitting gesture especially from a team who plays […]
After a well deserved rest back home in his native Venezuela, Johan Santana is back in the good ole’ United States as he prepares for another Cy Young type season. Of course he has heard all the rumors and all the trade talk while he was away, but he offered very little in the way of shedding any light on the situation. Associated Press quoted him as saying the following… "I’m a Minnesota Twin. That’s […]
While we are all growing weary of the staggering amount of Johan Santana posts throughout the Mets blogosphere, let me offer a post with a twist. No, it’s not a rumor. No, it’s not anything I read anywhere else. It’s just a notion I’ve concocted and wondered about. While there is an enormous amount of debate on whether the Mets should give up five of the team’s best prospects in exchange for the superstar left hander, what […]
I preface this post by saying the following information is factual, comes from verifiable sources, and is very legitimate. That being said, hang on to your Mets caps and grab a seat. I have been trying to verify some rumors that started surfacing late last night and spent a great deal of time tracking down verifiable sources from different sites regarding the news that the New York Yankees have in fact taken a giant step […]
I received a great question via an email from one of our readers last night and thought it was interesting enough to post it on the site this morning. Please feel free to offer your alternative answers or opinions in what I feel is a legitimate concern going into the 2008 season. Q – Last year we had Shawn Green on the roster who proved to very valuable as a replacement at first base when […]
Recently, the Mets have asked General Manager Billy Beane to keep them in mind with regard to Joe Blanton, who is the next player expected to be moved by the rebuilding Oakland A’s. The Mets could probably get something done right now if they really wanted to, however they still believe they have a shot at landing Johan Santana and they will not go to Plan B until Plan A is dead in the water. The fact […]
