According to Patrick Newman of NPB Tracker, Mets SP/RP Hisanori Takahashi would like to stay with the Mets, but wants a two year deal. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/npbtracker/status/27314154451[/tweeted] Initially, Takahashi sounded like someone who wanted to test free agency and pursue a chance to start somewhere else rather than remain with the Mets to be a reliever. It seems that his stance has softened somewhat, but in exchange he now desires the security of a two year deal. The Mets [...]
Following the Mets’ GM search brings a couple of thoughts to mind. I don’t see the Mets hiring Sandy Alderson plus Rick Hahn, as has been suggested. I believe the job is Alderson’s for the taking, which would enable him to help groom John Ricco to be his successor. I don’t think they’ll end up hiring one assistant GM (Hahn) when they won’t interview their current assistant GM. If they did, they’ll take a risk [...]
If this isn’t dedication for your favorite sports team, I don’t know what is. I would love to hear how Mets management would respond to this: Direct from Larry Brown Sports, I thought you guys and gals would get a kick out of this. This is without a doubt one of the most unique and hilarious fan stories I’ve ever come across. No offense to Oliver Perez, but apparently New York Met fans have the ability to [...]
With the League Championship Series starting this weekend (and with my team not in the mix yet again), I would like to share my picks for the remainder of the playoffs. Though you could say my picks are grounded in a personal bias, much research went into these picks, and I stand by my selections. To be honest, right or wrong in my picks, I could really care less about how the playoffs wind up. [...]
Updated 10/13 11:00 AM by Joe D. I just wanted to add some interesting info to Tom’s fine post. Alderson received a glowing endorsement from his protégé, Oakland GM Billy Beane, who worked for Alderson for more than half of Alderson’s tenure as GM of the Athletics. Beane spoke to the NY Post via telephone on Monday. “There’s no question he would change the image there. Right away, there would be direction and vision. That seems [...]
We’ve spent the last week talking about who will be our next manager and GM. As Sandy Alderson recently moved to the top of the GM list, most Mets fans are clamoring for either Wally Backman or Bobby Valentine to take over as skipper. My question is: Why not both? It seems improbable, almost impossible, but it makes sense. Bobby can be our next GM. Wally can be our next manager. Valentine had been considered for [...]
The interview process works both ways, and it would be fascinating to know the questions the GM candidates are asking of the Wilpons this week. I would think these would be some of them: During the press conference to announce the dismissals of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel, both Wilpons said ownership took responsibility. However, other than saying they hired the wrong people, what mistakes did Jeff and Fred Wilpon specifically make? Do the Wilpons [...]
Before I begin this week’s post I apologize for my post last week on Omar Minaya and Roy Halladay. When writing my post last week I had no intention to hurt anyone or insult anyone’s nationality. I promise in the future to be more careful with my posts. This is not a post bashing Johan Santana. I know early on in the 2010 season I wrote that Santana was done and I admit I was wrong. [...]
So with the bulk of the offseason looming, there are many questions surrounding the Mets. One that fans would not think would be a huge issue is first base. Ike Davis had a solid rookie year hitting .264 with 19 HR and 71 RBI (just three behind the Mets rookie record set by Darryl Strawberry in 1983). He played a Gold-Glove caliber first base and is booming with potential. I have been hearing some possible [...]
