When you think of closers in this generation, you think of flame throwing pitchers who are able to come in and shut down the opposition for one inning. The Firemen era, where closers handled 3 innings and got the traditional save, will no longer be visited. It comes down to a point in the game […]

So let’s play with this topic, then. Francisco Rodriguez, the now former Mets closer, was traded with $5 Million to the Brewers for two PTBNL. The Brewers basically got an amazing deal here because they got a good reliever, who will have no choice but to set-up Axford, and the Mets are paying for him. […]

I’m very happy this move happened last night. Here’s a few reasons why,  #1) K-Rod hired Scott Boras just a few days ago, and upon that hiring Boras began to send subtle threats to the Mets and Alderson that he controls where he goes and not Alderson.  #2) If you choose to buy into the fact […]

Now that Francisco Rodriguez is off to Milwaukee, Sandy Alderson and the Mets have an extra $17.5 million off the books for next year.

A Win – Win Trade For The Brewers and The Wilpons

I know many of you were as shocked as I was when the news broke late last night that the Mets had unloaded Francisco Rodriguez plus some cash (Sherman says it’s $5 million) to the Milwaukee Brewers in return for two players to be named later. The trade accomplishes two things for the Mets. One, […]

Photos: Are The Mets Buyers Or Sellers?

The season long question of whether the Mets would be buyers or sellers at the Trade Deadline, has now been answered. These exclusive photos provide convincing evidence that the Mets are in fact sellers, which of course most teams are when they are 11 games back and wallowing in third place.  The only thing I can […]

Mets Have Some Risky Rental Players

An article by posted on July 13, 2011 0 Comments

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Mets still appear uncertain about whether they’ll be buyers or sellers. Eventually, they’ll have to make a decision, and if they wind up being sellers, they possess several risky trade targets—possibly too risky to be thought of as rental players.
