According to Ken Rosenthal via MLBTR, the Mets are showing heavy interest in second baseman Adam Kennedy, formerly of the A’s. The Diamondbacks are also interested in the 34 year old Kennedy and view him as a potential starter at second base. Kennedy batted .289 with 11 homeruns and 63 RBIs for the Oakland A’s. He also scored 65 runs and stole 20 bases with a decent .758 OPS for a second baseman. Again, the Mets continue to operate with [...]

Former Phillies outfielder Pat Burrell has reportedly been swapped twice this morning, eventually landing with Phils division rival the New [...]
The 2009 MLB Winter Meetings are now underway in Indianapolis, and will provide fans with either much joy or just as much angst. Last year’s Winter Meetings certainly fit that bill. In 2008, we suffered through another miserable bullpen, and it seemed like money would be no object to revamp it in the off season. GM Omar Minaya was under the gun to retool the bullpen and deliver a winner. This year, the details of need are [...]

I have just finished reading a very good article by our friend Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post. While everyone seems to be scratching their heads and wondering what the deal is with the Mets fondness for catchers in recent days, Hubbuch actually does a fantastic job of filling in the blanks and explaining the reasoning behind some of the recent moves. It looks like both Jerry Manuel and pitching coach Dan Warthen were very unhappy with the [...]
According to the New York Time’s Jack Curry via his Twitter, The Mets hope the first thing they accomplish in Indy is unloading Luis Castillo so they can sign Orlando Hudson to play 2B. Castillo, who just came off a solid season in which he batted .302 and posted a solid .387 OBP is officially on the outs. By this time next week he’ll be just a distant memory. After all the hoopla regarding the [...]
