Latest Update form ESPN: Attorneys and prosecutors continue to work on a plea bargain in the case of New York Mets reliever Francisco Rodriguez, who is charged with third-degree assault, second-degree harassment and criminal contempt. Rodriguez would not comment Wednesday morning after appearing briefly in Queens Criminal Court. After the hearing, Judge Elisa Koenderman adjourned the case until Dec. 3, mentioning Rodriguez’s next court appearance as “a possible disposition or trial date.” But Christopher Booth, […]
I really like what the Mets have done so far as it shows thoughtfulness and the implementation of a real plan as opposed to the quick-fix mentality. Sandy Alderson was the best available general manager candidate and has not disappointed with the hires of Paul DePodesta and J.P. Ricciardi to the front office. The Mets are laying a strong foundation, one that will carry them beyond the checkbook mentality of free agency. While it is […]
As Sandy Alderson continues to hire his buddies and show no urgency in hiring a manager, he needs to consider bringing Orlando Hudson to the New York Mets. Hopefully Alderson will finally cut loose the dead weight that is Luis Castillo. The Mets should have signed Hudson in 2009, but instead they let him go to the Dodgers. Once again the Mets had another chance earlier this year to sign Hudson, but Omar didn’t. Since things are […]
For all of of you Mets fans who have had to endure years and years of agonizing ear aches, nauseating heartburn, and all those brain-pounding migraine headaches because of those two…, great news! [tweeted]http://twitter.com/ESPNBook/status/1768437953073152[/tweeted] Officially ESPN says, ESPN ended its 20-year association with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan as the voices of “Sunday Night Baseball” on Monday. They declined to renew Morgan’s contract and have asked Miller if he wants to stay on as the […]
One of the initial challenges that Sandy Alderson will face as the news Mets GM will involve the decision to either hold tight with the talent the Mets have or break up the core of players and basically start fresh. Right now, the Mets core centers around David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran and Johan Santana. They have a solid supporting cast which includes Angel Pagan, Ike Davis, Mike Pelfrey and a healthy Jason Bay. […]
Steve Sidoti of 7 Train To Shea, had an interesting post this afternoon in which he looks at some of the parts of the book Moneyball that dealt with our new GM Sandy Alderson. Incidentally, I just started to read the book myself today. One of the things that Steve mentions in his post is Alderson’s three rules, which are: 1 – Every batter needs to behave like a leadoff man, and adopt as his main goal […]
Angel Pagan had what looked to be a tremendous season for the Mets in 2010. When the news broke that Carlos Beltran would miss a considerable chunk of time and miss the start of the season, Pagan stepped right in as he did in 2009 and gave the Mets more than anyone expected. In 151 games he batted .290 with 31 doubles, 7 triples and 11 home runs. He also scored 80 runs while swiping […]
As you all know by now, the Mets have released Hisanori Takahashi as per the special terms of the 1-year deal he signed last offseason. Takahashi is now a free agent, and at midnight tonight, he will be joined by fellow southpaw Pedro Feliciano. Takahashi, 35, was said to be looking for a 3-year deal worth $15 million dollars. What lefty specialist Pedro Feliciano will be looking for has yet to be determined, but some reports having him […]
As expected, the Mets picked up the $11 million option for Jose Reyes for 2011 and left open the possibility of a long term extension. When the Mets signed Reyes to a multi-year deal in 2006, he was on the verge of stardom and being a special player. The injuries that plagued him early in his career were seemingly behind him, he was an All-Star and regarded as one of the top leadoff hitters in the […]
