In a post by Mark Simon of ESPN New York, he writes that despite being ostracized by the Mets, Oliver Perez still wants to be with the team next season. “I want to be back here,” Perez told ESPNNewYork.com. “I want to have a championship because I know the fans want it and I want it, too.” Unfortunately for him and fortunately for us, Jerry Manuel has been reluctant to use him and he has not thrown […]
“It doesn’t necessarily get better next year.” — That’s how Adam Rubin starts the second part of his “Meet The Mess” series for ESPN New York. He believes that the Mets may have to bide their time until 2012 before “resuming relevance” mostly because by then they could potentially have cleared $51.5 million in salary off the books from four players alone. He believes that the 2011 season will be mostly a “budget-induced youth movement” and will […]
Tyler Kepner of the NY Times just blew my mind in a recent article in which he writes, The Marlins have spent about $396 million on player salaries from 2000 through 2010, with 873 victories and a World Series title to show. The Mets have spent about $1.212 billion on salaries in those seasons, with 877 victories and no championships. In other words, the Mets have spent about $816 million more than the Marlins to […]
Some of you may have caught Monday night’s telecast of the Buffalo Bisons game on SNY. I wish they would broadcast minor league games more often, even if meant not broadcasting it live because of similar start times with the Mets. I’d rather watch a pre-recorded Bisons, B-Mets or Cyclones game over Beer Money and Daily News Live re-runs anytime. For those lucky enough to tune in and watch the Bisons destroy the Pawtucket Red Sox 12-4, it was also […]
I was just reviewing the latest posts on MetsBlog and came acros this morning’s posting of the NL Wild Card Standings. The Philadelphia Phillies are 70-54 and in first place in the NL Wild Card standings. With 38 games left to play, even if the Phillies played below .500 and ended up going 18-20, the Mets would still have to go 26-12 just to tie them. That doesn’t take into account the other five teams […]
The Buffalo Bisons lost both games of a doubleheader on Sunday, but that wasn’t all they lost. According to Bisons.com, Mets prospect Fernando Martinez suffered an apparent knee injury in the first game and did not play in the second game. Martinez played the entire first game, but could be seen nursing his right knee in the field and out of the batter’s box. Oberkfell said he aggravated the knee trying to beat out a […]
A sobering sign of the sinking morale in the Mets clubhouse revealed in a Tweet from Andy Martino of the Daily News. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/SurfingTheMets/status/21857745313[/tweeted] Before he left the Mets clubhouse for the last time, Barajas spoke with reporters. “It was disappointing. We were excited. I think all the Mets’ fans in New York were excited. Things were going great. We were putting ourselves in a great situation. Even to the All-Star break we were in a pretty […]
Breaking news Mets fans! Catcher Rod Barajas was just claimed off waivers by the LA Dodgers. Also, outfielder Jesus Feliciano will be called up to replace him. @KBurkhardtSNY Barajas claimed by the Dodgers. Jesus Feliciano will replace him. Barajas, 34, was hitting .255 with the Mets this season with 12 homeruns and 34 RBIs. He was hitting well during the first half of the season before falling into a slump and going on the DL. […]
Mike Puma of the NY Post writes, Jon Niese could be facing his own version of the Joba Rules. Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen told The Post yesterday that a discussion will be held this week about whether Niese’s innings should be limited for the remainder of this season in an effort to preserve the 23-year-old lefty’s arm. Niese pitches tonight against the Pirates, and has pitched 133 innings so far this season. That hardly sounds […]
