As the Mets continue to make a strong push to re-sign second baseman Luis Castillo, their negotiations may have just turned into a bidding war for his services.

Omar Minaya is making sure of one thing this off season as compared to last off season… he is making a strong effort to re-sign each Met that made a strong contribution to the team last season. After a week in which he brought back Moises Alou and Damion Easley, Omar continued that trend by […]

Who the Mets are really coveting is Yankees catcher Jorge Posada. While Posada is coming off of the […]

An article by posted on October 31, 2007

On Wednesday night I watched David Wright on Jon Stewart and I gotta tell you, it was so cool to see anything Mets related on TV again. David Wright was pretty funny and he looked very comfortable on TV. When asked about how the season ended, he said he still has nightmares about it… (me too […]

Finding A Solid Reliever Could Be Riske-y Business For The Mets

An article by posted on October 31, 2007

It’s obvious the Mets need to make some changes in the bullpen, but how to go about doing it may pose some interesting dilemmas for Omar Minaya. It’s clear that the fans demand the immediate departure of Guillermo Mota, but I don’t really see the Mets eating the final year of his contract. As it […]
