Adam Rubin of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets will no longer pursue Rudy Jaramillo as hitting coach and that Howard Johnson will remain in that position. Three years ago, Minaya had interviewed Jaramillo for the manager’s job that went to Willie Randolph. He felt it would not be right to put him on Randolph’s staff now. The Mets’ staff will remain intact with the exception of Rickey Henderson. That vacancy could be […]
I don’t think it’s the age as much as it is the fact that Omar has soured on Paul Lo Duca. Despite being 35 years old, Lo Duca still has plenty of gas left. If Jorge Posada bolts the Yankees, you will definitely see Minaya make a strong effort to pursue him, and he is the same age as Lo Duca. Last season, Posada allowed over 100 stolen bases which was the second worst showing in the majors. He set […]
This is it guys. The final report card. And today, we’re gonna grade the Coaching Staff and the Management. It’s been a fun ride; these past two weeks have been a blast. Thank you Met fans for believeing and hearing what we have to say. We truly appreciate it. Coaching Staff & Management(Willie Randolph, Omar Minaya, Howard Johnson, Rick Peterson, Rickey Henderson, Sandy Alomar Sr., various others) Ryan P. – This season was […]
It was a strange season for the New York Mets in 2007… When the season first started you almost had a sense that the Mets were going to haul in a ton of awards by the time the season was over… We all thought we had a Batting Title in the bag… At the end of April we had Jose Reyes (.356), Carlos Beltran (.356), and Moises Alou (.349) all leading the National League in batting and […]
This is going to be a shortened edition. A full issue will return tomorrow. Are you ready? Are you ready for that grade for the bullpen? Oh boy, you better get your belts fastened because we’re going to take a bumpy ride. Here we go! Ryan P. – Seriously. Last year our bullpen was a good B+ to A-. This year, it felt like a F to a D. All year long I […]
This week as I conclude this short series I wanted to focus on the pitching. This is probably the one area that Omar Minaya will have to concentrate most of his efforts this off-season. The Mets starting pitching and bullpen both failed to meet expectations in 2007 and barring some significant changes, it may be in for a repeat performance if things remain unchanged. On the starting pitching side, don’t expect much help from free […]
The staff decided to have starting pitching it’s own part since it was so big. Part Five of this seven part series will feature the ever-so-commented Mets starting pitching. It’s obvious this was one of the Mets problems this year, but was it their worst? Get ready to do your reading. We have alot of things to say today. Ryan P. – Yeah, I admit. This starting rotation wasn’t the best Omar put together, […]
The final of the outfielders will be reviewed tonight. We’re short one staff member, but he’ll be back to review on Tuesday. Carlos Beltran, Lastings Milledge, Marlon Anderson and Shawn Green will all be reviewed in this blog. Here we go! Center Field (Carlos Beltran) Ryan P. – Carlos Beltran played a great 2007. He hit for power and average, much like his season in 2006. He had more at-bats this year and played a […]
Will the Mets still have basically the same five guys in the rotation in 2008 with Pedro essentially replacing Glavine at number one? Will that be enough to win a division? It’s very difficult to say whether a rotation of 1. Pedro Martinez, 2. Orlando Hernandez, 3. John Maine, 4. Oliver Perez, 5. Mike Pelfrey would be enough to win a division in 2008. A lot depends on what moves and improvements teams like the Phillies […]
