2012 may not be over yet, but everyone is already looking ahead to 2013 and beyond, for a glimmer of hope. One of those glimmers is starting pitcher Zack Wheeler. Deemed a savior by Mets fans, the Mets organization doesn’t seem to be in much of a hurry to throw him into the New York limelight. Well it seems time is running out. The Mets will have no choice but to have Wheeler in the opening day […]
It comes as no surprise that the New York Mets have gone on record as saying they will not be releasing Jason Bay prior to the 2013 season. With the amount of money that is invested in Jason Bay, it is better to hang on to him and see if he can turn it around, instead of getting nothing in return for the investment. In the business world, these are considered sunk costs – costs […]
It has been widely speculated that Nick Swisher will be seeking out a deal similar to Jayson Werth’s seven-year, $126M contract, when he hits free-agency at the end of the 2012 season. I’m no mathematician, but that means Swisher would be making about $18M per year if he gets what he wants. Jason Bay made $18M in 2012, so it strengthens Swisher’s case, but I just don’t see him as a $15M+ per year player. […]
The season is winding down, and it’s time for me to pick out the FirstPitchMitch All-Stars. The FPM All-Stars are like the All-Madden team of baseball – they are the best of the best. When this team steps in to the stadium the skies open up, and the baseball gods marvel at their creation. Without further ado, I present the first ever FPM All-Stars… Catcher – Yadier Molina Yadier narrowly edged out Buster Posey simply […]
What the Mets should do with David Wright after the 2012 season has been the talk of the town as the season winds down. There has been a healthy mix of opinions on what the Mets should actually do with regards to David – some argue to hang on to the aging third baseman, while others want to trade him while the Mets can still lure top tier prospects for him. One team that may […]
The season is winding down, and it’s time to point out some of the things that I have seen taking place at Citi Field this year. Some of the things have been getting under my skin. They are my pet peeves. You have heard of a do’s and don’ts list – well this is a dont’s list. A list of things you should not do while at the ball park. I like to call them […]
With one final start slated for Matt Harvey this season, it’s a good time to evaluate what we have seen from the young fireballer in 2012. Like many speculated, he had some really great outings, and some that would be best if forgotten all together. It is expected that the Mets young righthander will have his ups and downs, but Harvey has ultimately done enough to lock down a spot in the Mets starting rotation for […]
It comes as no surprise to most Mets fans, but the team has officially been eliminated from the NL East race. They are 22 games behind the NL East leading Washington Nationals and only have 21 games to play. The team has little to play for the rest of the way, and the majority of the team has probably started booking some off-season vacations. The one player who still has a lot to play for […]
The rigors of the long major league baseball season seem to be catching up to some of the New York Mets. There have been numerous quotes and clues from the Mets coaching staff lately alluding to the idea that the Mets are looking forward to some much needed rest during the off-season. It’s O.K. guys, the fans went into hibernation about a month ago. David Wright was absent from Wednesday’s lineup so that he could […]
