Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post, reported that free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore is open to playing any outfield position; and not just center field. “He’s open to anything,” said his agent, Joe Urbon. “He’s not limiting his choices at all.” Original Post 11/2 - Sizing Up Sizemore For Mets Center Field Job The Mets have made a string of bad signings when it comes to aging, injured, unproductive or otherwise scarred players. Moises Alou, Julio Franco, Oliver Perez, Luis […]
There are three ways for a team to build: free agency, drafting and trading. With a stated budget of just over $100 million, Sandy Alderson’s free-agent options are limited, especially if he dives into the deep end of the Jose Reyes pool. He’ll be looking to plug holes in the bullpen and rotation with middle-tier talent. Cheap bench players are always available. There is potential in the minor league system, but it is the lower […]
The ratings for this World Series, which has been compelling, are down but should pick up by Game 6, which is a certainty. I’m betting on a Game 7, the game’s ultimate gem. But, that’s not enough for Maj0r League Baseball because the East Coast giants aren’t involved. With MLB’s penchant for panic and knee jerk reaction, I am beginning to wonder what the response will be. Tinkering has already done damage to the credibility of […]
I am anxious for the World Series to start, and I would like to see the Cardinals win because that would complete one of the great comebacks in baseball history. The Cardinals have what it takes to complete history. Either way, if the Rangers won, that would also be a compelling story, especially for Mets fans who still have a fondness for Nolan Ryan. The Cardinals have the best pitcher and player in the Series […]
In examining the potential market for Jose Reyes, we must first realize there are no concrete numbers. There’s “Carl Crawford Money,” as Fred Wilpon so eloquently called it. The $142 million over seven years given the Boston outfielder is the fuel behind speculation of Reyes’ reported quest of $100-plus million over seven years. But, it is only speculation, and we won’t have a frame of reference before the first offer is made and Reyes’ camp […]
The networks must be loving baseball’s final four of Milwaukee, St. Louis, Texas and Detroit. Their thinking, of course, is any LCS without the Yankees and Red Sox, or a Chicago or Los Angeles team, can’t be worth watching. Actually, I tend to root for the match-ups the networks least want to see. I don’t care either way that the Yankees and Phillies are done. I realize many Mets’ fans were thrilled to see them […]
Desperate times call for desperate measures and that’s what the Mets are doing with their 2012 ticket plans. Attendance was down for a third straight season in 2011, the fifth straight year they didn’t reach the playoffs. With the team in a financially precarious situation, they have no alternative is this stressful economy but to lower costs of season tickets and single-game tickets. The majority of Season Ticket Holders will pay less for their seats […]
It was stunning to see the Red Sox and Braves collapse over the past month, then finally crumble last night. We witnessed two of the greatest finishes in history, and the nature of it reminded us again of baseball’s magical power. It told us again a game and a season are never over until the mathematics dictate it to be true. The winters will be long in Boston – which they are used to by […]
What we’ve never seen from the Mets has been a batting title winner, and Jose Reyes is leading by micro-percentage points. Undoubtedly, a feel good story for the Mets would be for him to win the tile and announce he’s staying. It would give us a fresh feel and sense of optimism heading into winter, which for the Mets is two days away. But, I can’t help but think Reyes winning the title will be […]
