Spring Update: Castillo Batting Second, Pagan Cleanup, Lets Play Ball!

Saturday Updates David Waldstein relays a funny story about a head-to-head race yesterday with all the players. The drill was a 60-yard dash, but Jose Reyes and Angel Pagan were told to start 5 yards behind the rest of the staggered crew, and Ike Davis was told to stand a few yards in front. Reyes and […]

Major League Baseball provided $25 million to the owners of the Mets as they struggled to deal with a cash shortfall last fall and a looming lawsuit seeking hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of Bernard L. Madoff’s vast Ponzi scheme according to people briefed on the arrangement.   This direct intervention of Commissioner Bud Selig is telling […]

Intrasquad Game.. And It Begins

I know it doesn’t mean much, but it does mean baseball begins again! The real spring training opener is tommorrow, but that still didn’t stop today from being an exciting day. Scott Hairston sent a pair of solo homers out of the yard, accounting for all of Team A’s offense. Willie Harris and Dusty Ryan each […]

Alderson Vows That Only The Best 25 Players Will Make The Cut

Despite what my colleague Greg Pomes wrote here on Tuesday regarding Oliver Perez being guaranteed a spot on the roster, a solid case can be made that Alderson’s comment was taken out of context or perhaps even misinterpreted. Yesterday, Alderson not only made it clear that he will cut Oliver Perez and the remaining $12 million […]

MetsBlog.com’s Matthew Cerrone posted pictures of R.A. Dickey’s throwing session.   According to Cerrone, R.A. Dickey now has a new and improved knuckleball. We all seen last season that R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball was really nasty. Now, it looks like its only going to get even more nasty as it takes on the movement of a circle change which just […]

Castillo Fading Out Of Picture

An article by posted on February 25, 2011 0 Comments

Just because he hustles doesn’t mean Daniel Murphy will win the second base job. There are concerns about his defensive abilities, and while he has shown glimpses of offensive production, it is still a small window. The Mets like Rule 5 selection Brad Emaus’ potential, and he’ll get a nod over Justin Turner because the […]

Are Mets Prospects Being Rushed To The Majors?

An article by posted on February 24, 2011 0 Comments

On Tuesday, our own Ed Leyro posted a great piece which illustrated quite clearly how woefully deficient the Mets have been in producing an 18 game winner. In fact, they are on the verge attaining yet another dubious record; the longest drought in MLB history. Since 1990, no Met pitcher has reached the 18-win mark in a single […]
