An article by posted on October 21, 2009 0 Comments

According to a report on ESPN.com linked here (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=4581715), the NY Mets actually profited from the Bernie Madoff scheme. Awesome. I don’t know if there is an award ceremony for the business that gets the most bad press in a calendar year, but HOW the NY Mets could even be runners up in that category in […]

MLB Trade Rumors reports that the Mets have approximately $110M in salary commitments for 2010.  Assuming that Omar (and Jeff) can spend and equal last year’s payroll, he has approximately $30M to spend.  Below is a position by position account of who we have and what we need.  After spending the money, let’s see if […]

Mets Bid Sayonara To Ken Takahashi

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets have released 40-year-old rookie reliever Ken Takahashi on Tuesday. Hopefully, it’s just the begining of an ambitious house cleaning and a prelude to some much needed change on this roster as we shift the focus to 2010. Takahashi was 0-1 with a 2.96 ERA in 28 relief appearances. He wasn’t exactly as good […]

The Yankees finished with the best record in baseball, swept the red-hot Twins in the ALDS and are now playing the Angels in the American League Championship Series.  The Phillies won their third straight division title, were clutch in Colorado and are now trying to repeat as National League Champions.  Both teams are currently three […]

Picking Up Putz Option Would Be A Waste Of Money

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

The recent debate of whether or not the Mets should pick up the $8.6 million dollar option on J.J. Putz shouldn’t even be a debate at all. With all the problems the Mets have right now, why would they even consider paying almost nine million bucks to a setup man who hasn’t been effective since 2007? […]

A Catcher The Mets Should Sign And One They Should Avoid Like The Plague

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets have a lot of holes to fill in 2010.  They need an actual number 2 pitcher in the rotation; they need a set-up guy in the bullpen, a left fielder and a catcher.  Last week I addressed the left field situation and a lot of you readers had a few opinions to say […]

How About Brandon Lyon Setting Up K-Rod?

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

Yesterday, Joe D posted a blog suggesting that picking up J.J. Putz’s option would be a waste of money.  I happen to agree with his position.  Putz’s option is way too much for a man who has been a shadow of himself due to various injuries.  There are other less expensive options the Mets could […]

Mets Would Be Wise To Look Into DeWayne

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

DeWayne Wise will forever be known for the spectacular catch that he made on July 23rd, 2009, which allowed pitcher, Mark Buehrle, to earn the second no-hitter of his career. Despite enjoying two of the best years in his career in Chicago, Wise declined an assignment to the club’s Triple-A affiliate recently and elected to […]

Mets Aren’t The Only Team That Peaked In 2006

An article by posted on October 19, 2009 0 Comments

Three years ago today, Carlos Beltran got a good look at an Adam Wainwright curveball and the Cardinals went on to the 2006 World Series.  (I have spared my fellow Mets fans from having to see that picture by showing you a photo of Beltran hitting a home run against the Cardinals instead.)  After that […]

Mets Want First Baseman To Pair With Murphy

An article by posted on October 18, 2009 0 Comments

According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, the Mets will probably look for a power bat in left field and look for a right handed bat at first base to platoon with Daniel Murphy. While the Mets know they need to get an upgrade in power in left field or first base, I get […]
