Update 4/1 7:15 am General Manager Omar Minaya told reporters that Mike Jacobs, who is in camp on a minor-league deal, is the front-runner for the position to start the season. “I wish that did not happen, but we have to always be prepared,” Minaya said. “That’s why we come to spring training having signed free agents to minor-league deals as insurance.” That would mean Chris Carter or Frank Catalanotto will battle it our for the […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, it will be John Maine following Johan Santana and making the second start of the season. Maine will then be followed by Jon Niese, then Mike Pelfrey and finally Oliver Perez in the fifth spot. The move may simply be a reflection of the Mets concern about exhausting the bullpen by having Perez and Maine pitching on back to back days. Both are notorious for expending too many pitches […]
This just in from Rich Couthino of 1050 ESPN Radio, According to MLB sources Pat Misch was placed on waivers which he needs to clear before the Mets can send him to minors. The problem with that is nobody seems to believe that Misch will clear waivers. Misch had a 2.84 ERA in 18.1 innings last season for the Mets, and after a shaky start he rebounded nicely to give the Mets some solid starts including a […]
According to Brian Costa of the Newark Star-Ledger, the Washington Nationals have claimed catcher Chris Coste after the Mets placed him on waivers this weekend. Coste, 37, hit .224/.301/.317 in 230 plate appearances for the Phillies and Astros last year. After signing with the Mets, Coste made the following comments which understandably ticked many a Mets fan off. “It’s the last team I ever saw myself playing for. I knew I was going to accept it, […]
Former Mets/Yankees superstar Dwight Gooden faces a litany of charges after crashing his car, evading the scene, while under the influence, and with a child seated in the back seat, last week. I’m empathetic towards Gooden, but hardly surprised. Gooden has battled demons his entire life, and it’s become more than evident baseball creates an environment where players are conditioned to face a lack of accountability, hampering their professional and personal lives forever. After testing positive […]

Reyes is expected to resume his Spring Training upon his arrival in camp. His thyroid levels have returned to normal, and he is on his way back to Tradition Field later today and will be in Mets camp and on the field tomorrow. Additionally, […]
First base prospect Ike Davis has been sent to minor-league camp, according to David Lennon of Newsday via Twitter. Ike Davis headed down today. No Opening Day for him. Davis ends a solid spring debut with a .480 batting average, three home runs and ten RBI’s in 25 at-bats. He made quite an impression on the Mets staff, his teammates and of course the fans with his no-nonsense demeanor, heady play, and flashes of his enormous […]
Most of you who read this site are well aware of the competition for first base between Daniel Murphy, Ike Davis, Mike Jacobs and Fernando Tatis. Top prospect, Ike Davis is out-hitting and out-producing the competition and is miles ahead of the pack, but his youth and inexperience may have him ticketed for a one-way trip to Buffalo in the next few days. Jacobs and Murphy have done little to grab hold of the everyday […]
