First it was Chris Coste.  Then it was Henry Blanco.  Earlier today, Joe D posted that the Mets might go after Rod Barajas if they can’t get Bengie Molina.  SI.com’s Jon Heyman is now saying that the Mets are considering offering Molina a one-year deal worth $6 million, plus an option for a second year.  […]

So far, there’s been nothing significant to report from the 2009 Winter Meetings in Indianapolis. Despite the huge buildup leading up to Sunday night when most GM’s and their staffs began arriving, there’s been little buzz in a baseball market that is still difficult to accurately gauge. At his point, most of the rumors are as […]

Don’t Be Surprised If The Mets Make A Big Splash

An article by posted on December 7, 2009 0 Comments

For the last two months, many of the so-called experts have been doing their best to tell us that the Mets will not be players for some of the top free agents like Matt Holliday, Jason Bay and John Lackey. We’ve been told that they don’t have the money or that the don’t have the […]

Winter Meetings: Where We Were, Where We’re Going?

An article by posted on December 7, 2009 0 Comments

The 2009 MLB Winter Meetings are now underway in Indianapolis, and will provide fans with either much joy or just as much angst. Last year’s Winter Meetings certainly fit that bill. In 2008, we suffered through another miserable bullpen, and it seemed like money would be no object to revamp it in the off season. GM Omar […]

Last night, Newsday’s Ken Davidoff reported via Twitter that the Mets are considering free agent catcher Rod Barajas as an alternative to Bengie Molina.

It’s Winter Meetings Time (Ya Still Gotta Love It!)

An article by posted on December 6, 2009 0 Comments

Next to opening day and any day the Mets are in a playoff game, the first day of the Baseball Winter Meetings used to be my favorite day of the baseball season. I say “used to be” because this industry trade show (no pun intended) that lasts almost a week doesn’t generate the adrenaline, anticipation […]

Bill Madden: Mets Only Want Low Budget Latin Players

An article by posted on December 6, 2009 0 Comments

I can’t believe what I just read from Bill Madden in the Daily News this morning. Mets? Did somebody say the Mets? They won’t spend the money for Holliday, Bay or Lackey and apparently, they’re only interested in signing low-budget Latin players, having shown little or no interest in Byrd, Figgins, DeRosa, Wolf or even […]

Pat Burrell For Luis Castillo? Terrible Idea!

An article by posted on December 5, 2009 0 Comments

Luis Castillo for Pat Burrell? Says who? I don’t know who concocted this crazy rumor, but it’s about as nuts as the one that had us going after Milton Bradley. Actually, I’d rather have Bradley than Burrell, at least Bradley can field his position and he still has a potent bat. The only reason the Mets […]
