Alderson: We Want To Have Franchise Players

Sandy Alderson, J.P. Ricciardi, John Ricco and Paul DePodesta were all on hand to host a Hot Stove Talk with Season Ticket holders on Wednesday at Citi Field. The Mets tweeted many of the responses which I thought was very cool of them and a few of them shed some light on a lot of […]

An article by posted on 01/12/2011 0 Comments

According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, catcher Jorge Posada, formerly of the Yankees, contacted the Mets who told him they were not interested because they’re looking for a defensive back-up. As we’ve all talked about a lot on this site this past season. Ronny Paulino was a big fail in that regard and may I remind […]

MMO Top 20 Mets Prospects – #7 Juan Lagares, OF

The Mets first signed Juan Lagares out of the Dominican Republic as an IFA in 2006, just two months after his 17th birthday. At the time Lagares was a highly regarded hitter who also happened to be a shortstop. He spent that first professional summer learning the basics in the Dominican Summer League. The smart […]

Nationals Strong On Cespedes, Even Stronger On Fielder

The Washington Nationals have made no secret of their goal to add an impact power bat to their lineup this offseason. GM Mike Rizzo is currently in the Dominican Republic scouting Cuban outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, reports Bill Ladson of MLB.com. The Nationals believe Cespedes is big league ready and believe the right-handed-hitting slugger would fit nicely with Michael […]

Balance Is The Key To The New CBA

While details about the new CBA are still coming in, it seems one thing is quite apparent about this new deal. It was an exercise in balancing the inequities in the league. It starts off by balancing the AL and NL to have the same number of teams. While this does not appear to have […]

This Is How The World Will End

I couldn’t help but laugh at the big fuss over Jose Reyes grabbing a bite to eat in Philly last night. Funnier still was waking up to blaring headlines connecting Reyes to some clandestine negotiations with the Phillies who were covertly wining and dining the former Mets shortstop. Phillies officials responded like this: “That is […]

Morning Grind: Mets Will Regret Letting Nick Evans Slip Away

An article by posted on 30/11/2011 0 Comments

Given the financial situation the Mets are currently in, holding on to a guy like Nick Evans should have been a no-brainer. Not only would Evans have been a quality bat and add much-needed depth to a very thin, not-so-Amazin’ roster, but come at a relatively inexpensive price. This 25-year old has been up and […]

Francisco Cordero Makes the Most Sense for The Mets

So far this offseason, the Mets have been linked to several free-agent closers including Joe Nathan, Matt Capps, Frank Francisco, and Jonathan Broxton.

Why Did The Cardinals Decline Dotel’s $3.5MM Option?

I’m reading all these raves that the Mets are strong players for Octavio Dotel… Really? I mean do the people writing these headlines really belive that? Let me dispel that myth for you if I may… First of all, you may have already read that Jonathan Broxton – a much more inferior reliever than Dotel – just signed […]
