With no major signings since yesterday, it is time to evaluate where MLB free agents 6-10(as ranked by ESPN) stand. 6. Orlando Cabrera: I find it curious that declining shortstop Edgar Renteria got a two-year, $18 million contract, yet his perpetual rival, the steady Orlando Cabrera, is not signed. His price has reportedly fallen to $6 million and the Oakland A’s are showing interest. They have not offered a contract yet, but they will. […]
First let me introduce myself, which I probably should have done on my first post(Oh well). My name is Sach Chandan and I am a recent addition to the beat writing staff here at MetsMerized. My focus is on news from around the League. Today and tomorrow, I will be looking at the top ten free agents remaining after the signing of Oliver Perez. Today is 1-5 as ranked by ESPN. 1. Manny Ramirez: Enough […]
A recent USA Today article discusses the proverbial winners and losers of the 2008-09 offseason. Obviously the signing period is not over and the rankings could change depending on where major free agents like Manny Ramirez, Adam Dunn, and Ben Sheets sign. Of note to Met fans are the ranking that the team garnered at #2. Let Bob Nightengale explain: The Mets decided to do something to change their gags of the last two Septembers. […]
According to 1050 ESPN the Mets will be meeting with Scott Boras who represents both Oliver Perez and Derek Lowe. The NY Post confirms that Omar Minaya and Scott Boras will have lunch together on Wednesday. Here is what ESPN originally posted on their blog: A source says while in New York, Scott Boras will hold a face-to-face meeting with Mets executives to discuss Derek Lowe and Oliver Perez. Boras is in New York today […]
“Tickets are too expensive.” “The Mets are not thinking about families.” “Those prices are outrageous.” Those are the number one complaints that I get from Mets fans every time I write about tickets. To be honest, I think people are in an uproar over nothing. The Mets have taken every step to try to keep prices as low as possible for everyone. The only thing I can ask is, have you really checked out the […]
What a season this has been… It has taken 161 games just to get to this point, and it will take just one more game to figure out if this season was a disappointment or a huge success. After yesterday’s heroic performance by Johan Santana, we now turn to “Big Game” Ollie in one of the biggest starts of his young career. Going on three days rest for the first time since Game 7 (sorry I had to […]
It all comes down to this. Going into today’s game, we have seven games remaining. That’s more than enough time to overtake the Phillies for first place and avoid playing the Cubs in the first round of the playoffs. However, here is some food for thought, if after the last regular season game is played and the Mets and Phils are in a dead draw, and both teams still hold a lead over Milwaukee, the Mets […]
After yesterday’s doubleheader split, the Mets have 19 games remaining to decide who wins the NL East. They are currently in first place and by two games. More importantly, the Mets have the advantage of winning the head to head matchup with the Phillies this year after finishing 11-7 in the season series. This statistic if extremely important given that if the two teams finish the season tied for the lead, the Mets, not the Phillies and their […]
With every game that passes, a Met fan’s life expectancy drops three years during this divisional race. Why did the Little League World Series championship team from Hawaii look like nine Shane Victorino’s running around out there last week? Seriously, one is enough! Since when does, A.) a bunion sideline you for an entire season, and B.) surgery on said bunion threaten to end your career? Hey El Duque, come on bro, it’s a BIG TOE. Why is it […]
