The Seattle Mariners have acquired Michael Morse from the Washington Nationals in a three-team deal that included the Oakland Athletics. The breakdown of the deal is as follows… Mariners receive: Michael Morse, 1B/OF Athletics receive: John Jaso, C Nationals receive: AJ Cole, RHP / Blake Treinen, RHP / PTBNL from Oakland Something to point out, and rather interestingly, is that the trade represents a bit of a homecoming for two of these players, as MLBTR […]
It is my turn to roll out some profiles on who we feel are the top prospects in the Mets minor league system right now. As Sean mentioned in the first post of the series, which you can read here, the list was compiled after much deliberation, arguing, and name-calling. To be honest, a lot of that had to do with my new name being Perseus and Sean requesting to be addressed as Batman…but nevertheless, […]
Contrary to the ideas put out there by Ken Rosenthal, I did have an issue with the way things went down yesterday. In my eyes, anyone who did not have an issue with the shutout yesterday is blissfully ignorant. Rosenthal will not even catch wind of what I say though – I am a non-voter, someone who has an unimportant opinion anyway. But there were a few things that I really wanted to get off […]
So if you had not heard by now, RA Dickey took the time to write a farewell message to the Mets fanbase recently. Being a humble and classy man, he was met with emotional goodbyes and people wishing him well. You would be hard pressed to find any fan out there had a negative opinion of Dickey. I have had some time to think about the whole thing…and I have come to a conclusion on […]
The baseball market is an interesting place, poisoned by the once outlandish claims of the Yankees and the overall change in player value these days. We fear giving players contracts for the short term in their old age, yet we will gladly sign stars well into their late thirties at ridiculous salaries to get them in their prime. I could go on about my issues with the way players are valued these days, but I […]
How much stock can you put into stats from the Dominican Summer League? In a few years, we might just find out. The man pictured above is none other than Vicente Lupo, a highly-touted international prospect that signed on with the Mets in July of 2010. I have never seen anything along the lines of footage from Vicente Lupo, so all I have to work with are the numbers that he put up and his […]
As the second day of the Winter Meetings in Nashville comes to a close, here are a few updates that might be of interest to you all… Buster Olney tweets that the Red Sox might be looking to move Jacoby Ellsbury for pitching now. This is likely surfacing because the Red Sox signed Shane Victorino. Jacoby Ellsbury is a pretty good player, and with Niese’s name being thrown out more often along with RA Dickey […]
Here are a few tweets you might have missed in the wild ride that the second day of the Winter Meetings… According to Joel Sherman, the Mets looked into John Lannan – apparently as insurance to fill out their rotation if they trade RA Dickey. Lannan was recently non-tendered by the Nationals, where he has spent his entire MLB career to this point. He has gone 42-52 with a 4.01 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 410 […]
Shane Victorino has become the latest addition to the Red Sox as they look to rework their team after a failed season. According to MLBTR, Victorino has signed a three-year deal worth $39 MM, pending a physical. He was previously ranked, on MLBTR, as their 12th best free agent this offseason. The $13 MM per year surpasses the average that Angel Pagan got over his four year deal, which should no doubt be an interesting […]
