The Rawlings Gold Glove Awards were announced today and unfortunately no Mets were honored for outstanding defense. David Wright who had won two straight gold glove awards in 2007 and 2008, was supplanted by Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals at third base. Wright committed 18 errors in 2009 and had the lowest range factors of his six year major league career. His UZR (-10.4) and UZR/150 (-12.2), two advanced fielding metrics, rank Wright as the worst defensive third […]
With the Winter Meetings already underway, Mets GM Omar Minaya (or according to some, Jeff Wilpon in disguise) is faced with the daunting task of building a World Series contending team for 2010. Aside from the obvious needs of a left fielder and a top-of-the-rotation starting pitcher, Minaya has made it clear that the team will be looking to upgrade at second base. This past week there have already been rumblings about a potential deal […]
According to a tweet from Joel Sherman of the NY Post, Mets general manager Omar Minaya is meeting with Scott Boras tonight. I would assume this is simply just one of thirty such “meet and eats” Boras will be having this month as most teams attempt to get a handle on what they might expect this offseason, as well as letting Boras know which of his many clients they may have interest in. Here are […]
Through all the twists and turns the New York Mets have taken over the past four years, one factor has always remained constant. That particular factor is relief pitcher, Pedro Feliciano. Feliciano, who has been a mainstay in the Mets bullpen since his second tour of duty with the team began in 2006, has proven to be one of the most reliable relievers in the National League over the past couple of years. The 2009 […]
There was a flurry of minor moves yesterday regarding the Mets, as the free agent filing period continues to move forward. Former Mets who have officially filed now include Brian Schneider, Carlos Delgado, Alex Cora and Ramon Martinez. I believe that out of that group, at least one of them stands a good chance of returning next season. Delgado and Schneider will both be playing for new teams next season. Schneider has his sights set […]
On Monday, Jeff Francoeur underwent successful surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left thumb. The following is the official press release from the Mets: New York Mets rightfielder Jeff Francoeur today underwent successful surgery to repair a tear of the collateral ligament in his left thumb. The surgery was performed in Atlanta by Dr. Gary Lourie. Following the surgery, Dr. Lourie and Mets Medical Director Dr. David Altchek of the Hospital for Special Surgery in […]
As I had mentioned in my previous post, it has been nearly a year since the Mets acquired J.J. Putz from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for a bevy of players. When they acquired the hard throwing righty, the Mets envisioned having a proven closer that could fill in the closer’s role if needed. However, as usual, things did not work out as planned for the Mets. Throughout his brief season Putz found himself filling […]
Adam Rubin, of the New York Daily News, is reporting that the New York Mets are close to naming former minor league manager and Arizona Diamondbacks base coach, Chip Hale, as their new third base coach. The 44 year-old, Hale, spent parts of seven seasons in the big leagues. Over the span of 575 career at-bats, he hit .277 along with seven home runs and 78 RBI. One can only hope that this move will […]
With the news coming out over the weekend that the Detroit Tigers do not intend on bringing back slugger, Aubrey Huff, next season; the Mets now have another potential candidate to play first base next season. The soon-to-be 33 year-old first base seems like a perfect fit to bridge the gap between the incumbent, Daniel Murphy, and youngster, Ike Davis. Last season, Huff was rumored to be linked to the Mets a number of times, […]
