Mets Offseason Targets: C Jason Jaramillo

Another player I believe would be an interesting pickup for the Mets is the recently non-tendered catcher Jason Jaramillo, formerly of the Pittsburgh Pirates. Jaramillo, 29, has been hampered by injuries in the past and the rigors of being an everyday catcher are seemingly too much for him to handle. But he may prove to be a […]

The Job Behind The Job?

Weighing The Options Of A 2012 Rotation Without Santana

Every once in a while, I come across a comment on MMO that reads more like a stand-alone post and deserves special consideration. T Agee responded to my post this morning and gave me much to think about, but more importantly he reminds me of a few things that I sometimes forget while I stew […]

Mets Offseason Targets: LHP Hong-Chinh Kuo
