As most of you know by now from reading the 50 or so Mets blogs that posted the trade, the Mets completed a minor deal on Saturday when they reacquired outfielder Angel Pagan from the Cubs in exchange for two Minor League players. In the past, I would never even go through the trouble of deeply analyzing a deal such as this one, but when I consider how our other minor deals ended up last off […]
The more I think about it, the more I am becoming convinced that our catching situation will be a strength for the Mets in 2008. I was one of Paul Lo Duca’s biggest supporters and rallied hard for the Mets to re-sign him. Now that he is gone, I think I have to admit that the Mets will be better off for it. Sorry Paulie, but it’s true… With the left handed hitting Brian Schneider, […]
After a quiet couple of weeks, it looks like things maybe heating up again with Johan Santana as the Twins conclude that he must be traded. Let’s begin with Peter Gammons of ESPN who had this to say on Thursday in a chat with the Boston Globe’s readers… I think one issue that Bill Smith (current Twins GM) faces, is because Terry Ryan (former Twins GM) made so many great trades, he’s trying to remake […]
John Donovan of SI.com penned an interesting article today in which he ranks some of baseball’s off season activity. I only listed a few of his selections. Please read the entire article for his complete list. Best Risk For The Buck 1) With all the money around the game, putting a paltry $1 million down on a one-time franchise savior is kind of a no-brainer. That’s what the Padres did with oft-injured former Cubs pitcher Mark […]
Happy New Year! They said his pitching delivery would lead to an injury riddled career. They said that his career would be very short and that he had a low ceiling. They said he had a bad attitude and was un-coachable. They said he was not close to being major league ready. The former Mets regime said all of these things about Scott Kazmir before trading him to the Tampa bay Devil Rays and breaking […]
Fred Wilpon – I promise to spend every red cent from the 20-30% increase in ticket prices, and add it to the team’s payroll budget so that Omar can go out and sign the best free agents available. I will enable Omar to have the same financial freedom as his Yankees counterpart, Brian Cashman. I will also use a portion of that money to relocate the Homerun Apple to the new Citi Field. Omar Minaya – In 2008 I […]
All off season long, we kept hearing about how there was so little interest in any Mets prospects. Less than a month ago we even traded our one time jewel of the system, Lastings Milledge, for a couple of serviceable players who are what they are. We are being told that the Mets do not have the prospects to make a deal for a pitcher like Erik Bedard or Johan Santana, and yet both pitchers […]
It’s hard to believe that 2007 is finally coming to a close. Not only did "Your Season" not come, but it looks like for most of us, "our off season" hasn’t come either. Now that we are only days away from the official start to 2008 everyone seems to be getting a little retrospective this time of the year. I came across a pretty good article by Marty Noble on Mets.com yesterday that seems to […]
We all know that one day in the near future David Wright will be named captain of the New York Mets. It may be in two years or it may even take three years, but it’s going to happen. I think it should happen now… maybe in spring training before the team heads up north to embark on the new season. It’s not that I want to rush the process, but after a disastrous end […]
