This past week, New York Mets beat writer, Brian Costa, of the Star Ledger was kind enough to allow me to submit to him questions regarding Mets Hot Stove rumors. To obtain the questions I scoured the forums, as well as the chat room here at Mets Merized to try to come up with the best and most frequently asked questions regarding the team’s future. I’m confident that this interview will give you, the fans, […]
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 […]
According to several reports including Jon Heyman via Twitter, and the original story from Adam Rubin of the Daily News, free agent catcher Henry Blanco could become a member of the New York Mets as soon as today. The Mets appeared to be closing in on a deal with free-agent catcher Henry Blanco. The Venezuelan newspaper “El Nacional” reported Blanco had left that country Sunday for a physical with the Mets. Blanco, 38, hit .235 with […]
Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi over at FoxSports.com are reporting that numerous teams have been discussing Angel Pagan to be their potential starting center fielder. Outside of the Kansas City Royals, it is not yet clear who exactly is pursuing the 28 year-old outfielder although the article suggests that the Brewers, Rangers and Cubs could all have some interest. Last season in 88 games, Pagan hit .306 with six home runs and 32 RBIs […]
John Manuel of Baseball America, posted the latest ranking of MLB’s farm systems on SI.com. Baseball America ranks the 30 MLB farm systems twice a year — in the spring, as the minor league season is about to start, and again every December. In the latest rankings, the Texas Rangers have the best overall farm system and the Houston Astros finished last. I’m more concerned about the National League East where the Philadelphia Phillies ranked […]
When yesterday’s midnight deadline finally came and went, the Mets decided to stand pat and did not offer arbitration to any of their six remaining free agents. Carlos Delgado and Fernando Tatis, both Type B free agents, are not totally out of the picture yet, and the Mets could still opt to bring both of them back. As much as I like both of them, I just think it’s time to move on and change […]
According to FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi, the Mets are interested in bringing back reliever, Elmer Dessens, for the 2010 season. In 2009, Dessens was quite the bargain for the Mets as he had his best year in the big leagues since 2005, posting a 3.31 ERA in 32.2 innings. His K:BB ratio wasn’t the best (14:10), but he was still able to manage to get hitters out. The 13 year veteran has […]
The New York Mets have completed their 2010 Major League coaching staff this week. New additions include Dave Jauss as bench coach and Chip Hale as third base coach. Among the incumbents, Razor Shines, the third base coach in 2009, moves to first base, while Howard Johnson (hitting coach), Dan Warthen (pitching coach) and Randy Niemann (bullpen coach) will continue in their same roles. Also, the Mets also named Terry Collins, who is in his 40th […]
