Rich Couthino of ESPN 1050 Radio caught up with Omar Minaya and asked him about a number of Mets issues. Omar’s thoughts on the Mets going into spring training… I like this team, I think we have a good team. It’s good to see the guys playing on the field and to see Reyes fielding groundballs… It’s nice to see Santana and Perez back on the mound… I think we’re ready to have a good year. […]
Friday Update Adam Rubin of the Daily News spoke with Kelvim Escobar who downplayed the shoulder soreness and expects to be ready for opening day. “It’s more like getting my strength back, getting stronger,” Escobar said. On being ready for the April 5 opener against the Marlins, Escobar added: “I think so. It’s all going to depend how my arm responds to the exercises and how quickly my shoulder gets its strength back.” Escobar had […]
There are three words every baseball fan loves to hear. They bring us back to the time when we were kids and just wanted to have a catch with our friends. They provide warmth in our hearts and minds during an otherwise cold winter. They provide us with a sense of anticipation that the next season will be better than the last. Those three words are PITCHERS AND CATCHERS and as of today, the pitchers […]
As the Mets get ready for their 48th Spring Training camp in franchise history, Mets beat writer Adam Rubin gives us the complete list of everyone who will be making the trip. In addition to all the players on the 40 Man Roster, here are the non-roster invitees: Pitchers (10) Blackley, Travis (L) Dickey, R.A. Dessens, Elmer Egbert, Jack Takahashi, Hisanori, (L) Fogg, Josh Livingston, Robert (L) Mejia, Jenrry Muniz, Carlos Niesen, Eric (L) Catchers (2) […]
According to Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News, Angel Pagan and the Mets avoided arbitration and have agreed to a one year contract that will pay the center fielder $1.45 million. Pagan had originally requested $1.8 million whereas the team filed for $1.275 million. Therefore, they are paying him a little bit under the arbitrary midpoint. Last season, Angel had a fine season despite suffering an injury that sidelined him for a couple […]
ESPN’s Enrique Rojas reported via Twitter that Mets prospect Fernando Martinez was named the MVP of the Caribbean Series last night. Martinez went 2-4 with a walk and an RBI to lead the Dominican Republic to a 7-4 victory over Venezuela. Overall, Martinez had a great series, batting .348 (8-for-23) with a double and two home runs. It looks like F-Mart is in prime mid-season form, and it would be great to see him carry this over and have a […]
According to this report on MASN Sports, Japanese free agent Hisanori Takahashi has reportedly rejected deals from both the Mets and Orioles. The Mets had actually offered the reliever a Major League contract, but couldn’t reach an agreement on the dollars according to another report appearing on NPB Tracker. I’m a little surprised that the Mets continue to focus so much on the bullpen, especially after signing Chris Everts, Elmer Dessens, Ryota Igarashi, Kelvim Escobar and most recently […]
The New York Mets currently have four catchers on their 40-man roster with Chris Coste, Omir Santos, Henry Blanco, and Josh Thole, but apparently the Mets are still interested in yet another catcher. According to MetsBlog the Mets appear to be interested in former Toronto Blue Jays backstop Rod Barajas, who hit 19 home runs and had 71 RBIs last year. Barajas is, of course, the backup plan to Yorvit Torrealba, who ended up signing with the […]
This morning when I opened up my email I was both shocked and surprised to see an email from the Mets saying they were offering six pack ticket programs this year, and we could order them right away. For years I was seven pack holder at Shea Stadium. Last season, when Citifield opened the Mets did away with the seven packs, in favor of a 15 game pack. Sorry, from both a financial and domestic […]
