According to Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post, the Mets and Red Sox completed the Billy Wagner trade by acquiring AAA OF Chris Carter and Single-A 1B Eddie Lora. Carter was immediately added to the Mets’ 40-man roster, which brings the current number to 38. Carter, 26, is a career minor leaguer who has consistently hit well over .300 at Class AAA. This season, he hit .294 with 16 homers for Pawtucket. Originally a first baseman, […]
Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News is reporting that there is some speculation going around that the SNY announce trio may not be back in full next season. Raissman, who always does a stellar job covering the network, reveals that there are some rumblings going around that Keith Hernandez may not be back in the booth next season. This speculation is fueled by comments made by the former All-Star first baseman following Sunday’s […]
I really don’t understand what the big fuss is about bringing Wally Backman to the Mets, but apparently according to Jon Heyman of SI.com, the Mets will offer Backman a job on one of their minor league teams, possibly at Class-AA Binghamton where there is a managerial vacancy. The Mets are leaning toward giving 1986 hero Wally Backman a second chance. Backman, a fiery leader from that championship 1986 team, recently called for a job […]
No NL East Report today, as the division is clinced, everybody is eliminated, and nothing has really changed. Monday will feature a year-in-review edition of the NL East Report, though. Today we will take a look at the award races across Major League Baseball and my picks. National League MVP: Albert Pujols has had this award sealed since June, and there is no other player as all-around offensively accomplished. Could have had a shot at […]
According to various sources, including SI.com and MetsBlog, Jose Reyes has now suffered a tear in his right hamstring. An MRI revealed the new tear, which occurred during one of his running drills on Tuesday at the facility where Reyes was training. Reyes has been on the disabled list since late May with what was first classified as a torn hamstring tendon behind his right knee. Recently, in an attempt to perhaps play before the […]
Only moments ago, Jerry Manuel spoke to reporters before the game according to MetsBlog. Matt writes, Jerry Manuel told reporters Jose Reyes felt discomfort while running yesterday, and will be re-examined today. Manuel believes the team and Reyes will make a decision regarding surgery as soon as tomorrow, though a team spokesman quickly dismissed that any such timetable exists. I just can’t think of any other team handling one of their core players with as much dysfunction […]
As we approach the final four games of the 2009 regular season, any hope of spinning a positive ending to an otherwise dreadful season is pretty much lost. Despite the writing being on the wall since mid-Summer that the Mets would not be involved in post season play for the third straight year, Mets fans clung to the hope that they would at least get a glimpse of the team’s future. However, like the stars […]
The word around baseball is that Chris Carter, whom the Mets were allegedly going to receive as the player-to-be-named-later in the Billy Wagner trade has been designated for assignment. This is significant because if you can recall, Carter was previously placed on waivers over the summer with the intent of shipping him to the Mets. However, the Yankees claimed him in an effort to cause roster management issues for the division-rival Red Sox. Being that […]
