MLB.com is reporting that the Seattle Mariners have in fact signed free agent pitcher Carlos Silva to a 4-year, $44 million dollar contract. The 28 year old pitcher has a career record of 55-46 with a career ERA of 4.31, and has proven to be a solid innings eater. He pitched six or more innings in 24 of his 33 starts last season. Of the few free agent pitchers the Mets were rumored to be interested [...]
It has already begun. With the speculation that the Oakland A’s may look to trade Joe Blanton, the rumors connecting him to the Mets have already begun. Mind you, there is nothing but the flimsiest of speculation to these rumors and yet some sites are running with it as if it’s a revelation from above. I personally am tired of hearing about everyone’s Mets sources and insider information and what not. On so many occasions I was [...]
It’s a Little League parents worst nightmare. Their child being hurt during a game that is… Torn between jumping the fence to coddle their precious child, or let them take their lumps and learn to pick themselves back up. Within an instant a wild pitch hitting them in the back, an outfield collision or even a line drive to the pitchers mound can pierce even the hardest heart or make nerves of steel turn to [...]
It is probably very hard…wait…it is very hard to be Omar Minaya right now. But watching the Diamondbacks aquire Dan Haren from the Athletics and then trade Jose Valverde to the Astros makes me wonder: what is Omar doing? Or not doing? We could have had Dan Haren, or at the very least Joe Blanton. And it would have cost us Lastings Milledge. I understand that if Billy Beane wanted to make a deal, he would [...]
It’s time to face the facts. The Mets are not going to land themselves a starter who is not named Livan Hernandez or Bartolo Colon. After seeing what the Detroit Tigers gave up for Dontrelle Willis, and even worse, what the Arizona Diamondbacks gave up for Dan Haren, I am completely convinced that the Mets not only are out of the game, but I don’t believe they were ever in the game to begin with. If the [...]
Scratch off another would-be starter off the Mets Wish List, as Dan Haren is on his way to pitch for the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs had all the prospects the Oakland A’s wanted and they had no problem moving five of their top ten prospects to get the deal done. According to MLB.com, the Diamondbacks get RHP Dan Haren and RHP Connor Robertson from the Athletics for OF Carlos Gonzalez, LHP Brett Anderson, OF Aaron Cunningham, 1B Chris [...]
The Mets, right now, are in a holding pattern. Nothing has happened. Nothing. If something had happened, I’d be writing about that instead. So, as a little treat, I have compiled my thoughts of this off season and hopefully, you will find it funny. -I’m really gonna miss Lastings Milledge and Paul Lo Duca. It seems like if you argue with an umpire and actually show some passion, then you’re gonna get kicked off the [...]
After taking some time to sift through the enormous amount of data in the Mitchell Report, I wanted to weigh in on it from a Mets fan’s perspective and also from a baseball fan’s point of view. From what I could see after sorting through the list of players, I was happy to find that there were no current Mets. (Whew) Learning that Paul Lo Duca was named in the report was a real shock for me, [...]
With the Christmas holiday mere days away, the Mets remain without the frontline starting pitcher they so desperately require. Frustration is beginning to sink deep within all of the Amazin’s faithful followers. Without a defined ace toeing the rubber, or one who has the potential to become just that, the Mets outlook for 2008 is looking gloomier as each day passes. Omar Minaya has seemingly begun a personal caravan the last three weeks to publicly [...]
Today was kind of a busy day for some teams as the rest of MLB brace themselves for the Mitchell Report which is expected to be released sometime tomorrow. I found it very ironic that the Orioles finally traded Miguel Tejada on the eve of the report’s release date. Tejada’s name has been mentioned on more than one occasion in connection with banned substances. Today he was traded to the Houston Astros for a boatload [...]
During my daily boredom induced web surfing, I came across yet another reason why being a Mets fan can sometimes be painful. As we all know, Michael Vick has just been sentenced to 23 months in prison. In “celebration” of that, Sports Illustrated (si.com) has put together a photo gallery of famous athletes who have gone to jail. Lo and behold, 2 of the top five are …you guessed it…METS!!! The first one listed is [...]
