As we all know, the final candidates for the next Mets general manager are Josh Byrnes and Sandy Alderson. Some have said there could be an announcement by the end of this week as to which of them will get the nod. Personally I hope the next GM is Alderson. I don’t like some of what I’ve read about Byrnes, but which ever one becomes the new GM, the one thing that person must do is come up with a [...]
Mets fans might have celebrated hollow victories over the weekend when the Yankees and Phillies were eliminated from the postseason on consecutive nights, the final out in each game coming on a called third strike. Alex Rodriguez one night; Ryan Howard the other. Of course, rooting against the Yankees and Phillies is futile work, as it does nothing toward the improvement of the Mets. However, the most important development lately has been the narrowing of [...]
I recently looked into who will be available in this year’s free agent class. There are many big names, but these names will likely come with expensive price tags. Additionally, many of these big name players are not so young anymore. Whoever is in charge of making the decisions in Queens (which according to Jeff Wilpon we will find out shortly!), it might be a wise strategy to avoid these big name free agents and [...]
THE GIANTS WIN THE PENNANT! When Brian Wilson (and his beard) struck out Ryan Howard looking to end the Phillies season, it set up a date in the World Series with the American League champion Texas Rangers starting this Wednesday in San Francisco. Texas Rangers The Rangers rotation is anchored by mid-season acquisition, and playoff ace, Cliff Lee. After Lee is CJ Wilson, Colby Lewis, and Tommy Hunter. Lewis has a 1.45 playoff ERA with [...]
Over the past I’d say two years, I’d put the Mets fanbase up against any other Major League team’s as having the most divided fans when it comes to statistical analysis. It is as much of a line in the sand lately as whether you’re a Republican or Democrat. I think part of the problem is that there is so much negativity around the construction of the current roster that the negativity rolls through the [...]
It is a sad state of affairs when the rest of the league laughs at you instead of hating you. One of the most memorable (and hated) teams in the franchise were in the late 80′s (1984-1990 and not coincidentally under the helm of Davey Johnson). The Mets not only won handily but had a clear identity. They were hated but were fighters and they didn’t take mess from anyone. You hit one of their [...]
After giving the Ike Davis for Prince Fielder trade some time to be debated, I’d like to propose another possible trade option for the 2011 New York Mets. It would involve the Mets trading Carlos Beltran and some minor leaguers (maybe a pitcher and one of Duda or Evans) to the Kansas City Royals for Zack Greinke and David DeJesus. This deal would involve many moving parts so here is the rationale I have to [...]
As I was writing a response to Cerrone & Joe D and the rest of our MMO population, I realized I was writing a blog. Therefore, I figured a responsive blog may be the best route to go. It’s a great debate. It’s one that isn’t stale and what I find fascinating about it is well two things. #1 – Nobody knows the answer because nobody knows who the General Manager is, and #2 – [...]
While we all wait for the Cy Young and MVP Award announcements, The Sporting News dished out their own awards yesterday and name Texas Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton the MLB Player of the Year. Hamilton edged out Cincinnati Reds first baseman Joey Votto according to the MLB writer Stan McNeal. Here are the rest of the 2010 The Sporting News winners: Pitchers of the Year AL: Felix Hernandez, SP, Mariners NL: Roy Halladay, SP, Phillies Managers [...]
