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 [...]
Earlier today, the Washington Post reported that Paul Lo Duca had agreed to a one-year contract with the Washington Nationals for the 2008 season. Terms were not immediately available, though Lo Duca was thought to be seeking $5 million. The deal is pending Lo Duca passing a physical, a source said. Lo Duca, 35, played the past two seasons with the New York Mets. A .288 career hitter and four-time all-star, he played previously for [...]
I don’t believe there will ever be another baseball setting that will ever conjure up the feelings and emotions that build up inside me whenever I walked through the turnstiles at Shea Stadium. For the longest time I used to save my half of the ticket stub that was returned to me by the ticket attendant. To me it was going to be a special day whether the Mets won or lost. I used to [...]
On the last day of the Winter Meetings, word spread that before the Mets traded Lastings Milledge to the Nationals, he was involved in another potential trade with the Giants for Noah Lowry. David Lennon of Newsday, wrote the following… Another interesting development from late in the winter meetings was the revelation that the Mets talked to the Giants last month about acquiring lefthander Noah Lowry, according to a person familiar with the situation. San [...]
In a recent interview, Billy Wagner said that he thought the Mets were, at best, a third place team. With the Winter Meetings here and gone, and only the loss of Lastings Milledge to report, he may be right. The thing I don’t quite understand about the Milledge trade is why we couldn’t package him along with a couple other prospects, send him to Oakland, and get Dan Haren or Joe Blanton. Billy Beane may [...]
What a bummer. You wait all off season for the Winter Meetings to begin… you build up all this energy and excitement… and then what do you get? Nothing… Zero… Nada… In the meantime, we were bombarded with one outlandish rumor after another which were composed of 10% truth and 90% cow dung. For almost four days major league GM’s huddled in Nashville and after all was said and done we got one blockbuster trade [...]
Last night at 2:30 am the New York Mets reached an agreement with the Minnesota Twins for ace lefty Johan Santana. The Twins reportedly will receive the Mets minor league affiliate in New Orleans, Jose Reyes, David Wright, and Al Harazins’ soul in this blockbuster deal. The Mets have reached an impasse in discussions for Orioles stud Erik Bedard, as the package of Billy Wagner, Mike Pelfrey, Carlos Gomez and David Wrights’ firstborn son were [...]
Philly Metro is reporting that Pat Gillick has offered a package of players to the Baltimore Orioles for the highly sought after pitcher, Erik Bedard. The Phillies managed to squeeze into the playoffs at the end of September despite the poor overall starting staff. But with that in mind, general manager Pat Gillick has turned his attention to a front-line starter at the MLB Winter Meetings this week. The latest rumor in their hunt for [...]
In a stunning development Wednesday, a blockbuster deal involving the Mets, the Twins, and the Athletics was proposed. The deal would send Jose Reyes to the Athletics and Johan Santana would be a Met. Like most of Mets Nation, I would love to have Johan Santana, but we need to keep Jose Reyes for these three reasons: 1.) Jose Reyes is a proven star. This deal would most definitely go down as arguably the worst [...]
