Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com is reporting the following: With the Toronto Blue Jays looking at the possibility of losing starting pitcher A.J. Burnett to an opt-out clause in his contract next winter, general manager J.P. Ricciardi told ESPN.com that the team is willing to entertain trade proposals from interested clubs this offseason. Burnett, 30, signed a five-year, $55 million contract with Toronto as a free agent in December 2005, but the deal included an opt-out […]
At 4:00 PM Rawlings announced their 2007 Gold Glove winners, and named New York Mets, David Wright and Carlos Beltran as winners in the National League.

With the GM Meetings set to begin on Monday, Steve Popper of the Bergen record is reporting that the Mets will be having a face-to-face meeting with Paul Lo Duca and his agent, Andrew Mongelluzzi. "We are open to finalizing a deal with the Mets," Mongelluzzi said in an e-mail. "The Mets have repeatedly stated that they ‘want the player’ and discussions will continue. However, I don’t believe that the Mets are ready as they are […]
As the Mets continue to make a strong push to re-sign second baseman Luis Castillo, their negotiations may have just turned into a bidding war for his services. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the Houston Astros are also in hot pursuit of the gold glove, second baseman and view him as the heir apparent to the recently retired Craig Biggio. Luis Castillo is by far the best second baseman available in this […]
Omar Minaya is making sure of one thing this off season as compared to last off season… he is making a strong effort to re-sign each Met that made a strong contribution to the team last season. After a week in which he brought back Moises Alou and Damion Easley, Omar continued that trend by re-signing utility outfielder Marlon Anderson to an apparent 1-year deal with an option for 2009. The actual terms are expected […]
I read an interesting article from Newsday’s Mets beat writer Ken Davidoff. In his article, David discusses how the Mets can easily add Alex Rodriguez by simply moving Carlos Delgado out of the picture and putting A-Rod at first base.. The only remaining option is to trade Carlos Delgado, and it looks like the Mets are prepared to do that. Not only did he have a down year offensively, but Delgado shriveled in the spotlight […]
Much has been made of the Mets seeing if they have what it takes to trade for Johan Santana and signing him to a long term deal. Santana is certainly one of the best pitchers in the game if not the best. And while it would be great to see him taking the mound for the Mets every fifth day, I just don’t see how that vision can ever come to fruition. Earlier today I […]
