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. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports is reporting that the Houston Astros are also in hot pursuit of the gold glove, second baseman and view him as the heir apparent to the recently retired Craig Biggio. Luis Castillo is by far the best second baseman available in this [...]
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 re-signing utility outfielder Marlon Anderson to an apparent 1-year deal with an option for 2009. The actual terms are expected [...]
I read an interesting article from Newsday’s Mets beat writer Ken Davidoff. In his article, David discusses how the Mets can easily add Alex Rodriguez by simply moving Carlos Delgado out of the picture and putting A-Rod at first base.. The only remaining option is to trade Carlos Delgado, and it looks like the Mets are prepared to do that. Not only did he have a down year offensively, but Delgado shriveled in the spotlight [...]
Much has been made of the Mets seeing if they have what it takes to trade for Johan Santana and signing him to a long term deal. Santana is certainly one of the best pitchers in the game if not the best. And while it would be great to see him taking the mound for the Mets every fifth day, I just don’t see how that vision can ever come to fruition. Earlier today I [...]
Today the Baltimore Orioles declined the option on pitcher Kris Benson and normally I wouldn’t even consider the thought of having him back on the Mets, but then something dawned on me. Maybe we should sign him as a number 5 pitcher and then after a few good starts we can trade him back to Baltimore, or anyone else for that matter, in exchange for one of their former first round picks. Think about it, I [...]
Yesterday it was reported on many sites that Paul Lo Duca and the Mets have begun talks for a new contract. Today it’s becoming clearer that the Mets interest in Lo Duca is merely as a backup plan. Who the Mets are really coveting is Yankees catcher Jorge Posada. While Posada is coming off of the finest season in his career, I feel that he will pose a major risk for the Mets. He obviously will [...]
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 David) He also said that we were going to win it all in 2008 and I believe him! I was [...]
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 stands now, with the Aaron Sele filing for free agency, the Mets have at least one opening. Some say we [...]
It seems like the Mets are considering making a big run at free agent third baseman, Alex Rodriguez. Bob Klapisch of the Record reports that the Mets plan to ask David Wright about switching positions. Wright had volunteered early this year to do just that, if it would mean landing Alex Rodriguez, and now the Mets are going to find out if he still feels the same way. Here is what David Wright said last March: "If Omar or someone [...]
