In the past two months it seems that every Mets post on every Mets site has to do with pitching. I understand why Mets fans are so concerned when you consider the myriad of questions in our rotation as currently configured. Despite what some consider to be a flawed rotation, I still believe the Mets will win the division with the current cast of players. I believe the Mets will be a far greater offensive […]
MLB.com is reporting that the Seattle Mariners have in fact signed free agent pitcher Carlos Silva to a 4-year, $44 million dollar contract. The 28 year old pitcher has a career record of 55-46 with a career ERA of 4.31, and has proven to be a solid innings eater. He pitched six or more innings in 24 of his 33 starts last season. Of the few free agent pitchers the Mets were rumored to be interested […]
It has already begun. With the speculation that the Oakland A’s may look to trade Joe Blanton, the rumors connecting him to the Mets have already begun. Mind you, there is nothing but the flimsiest of speculation to these rumors and yet some sites are running with it as if it’s a revelation from above. I personally am tired of hearing about everyone’s Mets sources and insider information and what not. On so many occasions I was […]
It’s time to face the facts. The Mets are not going to land themselves a starter who is not named Livan Hernandez or Bartolo Colon. After seeing what the Detroit Tigers gave up for Dontrelle Willis, and even worse, what the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up for Dan Haren, I am completely convinced that the Mets not only are out of the game, but I don’t believe they were ever in the game to begin with. If the […]
Scratch off another would-be starter off the Mets Wish List, as Dan Haren is on his way to pitch for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs had all the prospects the Oakland A’s wanted and they had no problem moving five of their top ten prospects to get the deal done. According to MLB.com, the Diamondbacks get RHP Dan Haren and RHP Connor Robertson from the Athletics for OF Carlos Gonzalez, LHP Brett Anderson, OF Aaron Cunningham, 1B Chris […]
After taking some time to sift through the enormous amount of data in the Mitchell Report, I wanted to weigh in on it from a Mets fan’s perspective and also from a baseball fan’s point of view. From what I could see after sorting through the list of players, I was happy to find that there were no current Mets. (Whew) Learning that Paul Lo Duca was named in the report was a real shock for me, […]
Today was kind of a busy day for some teams as the rest of MLB brace themselves for the Mitchell Report which is expected to be released sometime tomorrow. I found it very ironic that the Orioles finally traded Miguel Tejada on the eve of the report’s release date. Tejada’s name has been mentioned on more than one occasion in connection with banned substances. Today he was traded to the Houston Astros for a boatload […]
Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that Paul Lo Duca had agreed to a one-year contract with the Washington Nationals for the 2008 season. Terms were not immediately available, though Lo Duca was thought to be seeking $5 million. The deal is pending Lo Duca passing a physical, a source said. Lo Duca, 35, played the past two seasons with the New York Mets. A .288 career hitter and four-time all-star, he played previously for […]
I don’t believe there will ever be another baseball setting that will ever conjure up the feelings and emotions that build up inside me whenever I walked through the turnstiles at Shea Stadium. For the longest time I used to save my half of the ticket stub that was returned to me by the ticket attendant. To me it was going to be a special day whether the Mets won or lost. I used to […]
