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 […]
On the last day of the Winter Meetings, word spread that before the Mets traded Lastings Milledge to the Nationals, he was involved in another potential trade with the Giants for Noah Lowry. David Lennon of Newsday, wrote the following… Another interesting development from late in the winter meetings was the revelation that the Mets talked to the Giants last month about acquiring lefthander Noah Lowry, according to a person familiar with the situation. San […]
What a bummer. You wait all off season for the Winter Meetings to begin… you build up all this energy and excitement… and then what do you get? Nothing… Zero… Nada… In the meantime, we were bombarded with one outlandish rumor after another which were composed of 10% truth and 90% cow dung. For almost four days major league GM’s huddled in Nashville and after all was said and done we got one blockbuster trade […]
Philly Metro is reporting that Pat Gillick has offered a package of players to the Baltimore Orioles for the highly sought after pitcher, Erik Bedard. The Phillies managed to squeeze into the playoffs at the end of September despite the poor overall starting staff. But with that in mind, general manager Pat Gillick has turned his attention to a front-line starter at the MLB Winter Meetings this week. The latest rumor in their hunt for […]
Frustrating… For a team that played .500 baseball since June of last year… for a team that blew a historic seven game lead in a matter of two weeks… for a team who was manhandled by the Florida Marlins and Washington Nationals… I would have expected a far more aggressive pursuit of a top starter, a top reliever, and a power laden left handed bat. Instead we are treated to an assortment of canned talk […]
I just read an interesting article from Dan Graziano at the Star Ledger, that was chock full of interesting little tidbits for Mets fans this morning. Let’s start off with this quote where he states that the Mets went-a-knockin’ and nobody was home… While they have tried to engage the Marlins about Dontrelle Willis, the Astros about Roy Oswalt and the Brewers about Ben Sheets, they have been told that those pitchers are not available. […]
WFAN beat reporter, Sweeny Murti is at the Winter Meetings in Nashville, and apparently has reported that there there is news floating around that the Mets are close on Erik Bedard. Nobody else on either side can substantiate this report and it makes me wonder if it’s just speculation. Some Mets sites are running wild with the story, but I think we’ll just take a wait and see approach here at Mets Merized Online. If there is any […]
The Washington Post is reporting that Orioles starting pitcher, Erik Bedard, has informed the Orioles that he will not sign any extension to remain with the team. The Orioles were rumored to have been working on a possible extension, but now that is out the window. For those teams that lose out on Santana, there still is no shortage of attractive pitchers available on the trade market. Perhaps the best of those is left-hander Erik […]
