Carlos Delgado is currently playing in the Puerto Rican Winter League and is interested in returning next season. Likewise, the Mets are interested in bringing the slugging first baseman back to New York. Delgado had a good start to the 2009 season with a .298/.393/.521 line. Of course, that was all in a total of 26 games as the 37-year old first baseman underwent season-ending right hip surgery back in May. The Mets are not the only team interested […]
Anthony DiComo of Mets.com, is reporting that the Mets have agreed to a new contract with John Maine tonight, thus avoiding arbitration with the right-hander. According to the Associated Press the deal is worth $3.3 million guaranteed and Maine can earn an additional $225,000 in performance bonuses based on games started. Maine, 28, went 7-6 with a 4.43 ERA last season, spending much of it on the disabled list after offseason surgery to remove a […]
Here is the updated version of the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft. The Mets forfeited a second round pick when they signed Jason Bay. All the Type A free agents have been accounted for now that Jose Valverde has signed with the Detroit Tigers. Only three Type B free agents remain: Brian Shouse, Rod Barajas and Joel Pineiro. Their former teams will receive a supplemental first round pick once they sign with a new team. The last time the Mets […]
Bad news… Joel Sherman of the New York Post has just reported on SNY that Mets centerfielder Carlos Beltran underwent some sort of surgery on his knee and will miss a minimum of 8-12 weeks. Reportedly, Beltran underwent this procedure without permission from the team. Last season, Beltran was very upset with how the Mets handled the bone bruise on his knee. Obviously, Beltran no longer trusts the Mets medical staff, especially one that remained intact after the […]
The Associated Press reports that the Florida Marlins have reached an agreement with the MLB Players Union to increase spending after complaints were filed that the Marlins payroll has been so small that it violated baseball’s revenue sharing provisions. The deal was announced today in a joint statement by the Marlins, the players union and Major League Baseball. Beyond the statement made, the parties did not comment on the matter. It is currently unclear how much the Marlins’ payroll might increase. The […]
According to Bill Ladson who covers the Washington Nationals for MLB.com, second baseman Orlando Hudson is seeking a $9 million dollar contract for next season. The market for second baseman is very soft and in my opinion, Hudson will end up taking a one year deal just as he did last season. The Mets would still like to add the O-Dog, but probably not for more than $6 million in guaranteed money. Meanwhile, John Morosi of Fox […]
According to Ed Price of AOL Fanhouse, the Mets are having in-depth talks with right hander Joel Pineiro about a contract that is worth around 2 years and $15 million. Pineiro reportedly received a much similar offer from the Washington Nationals earlier this off-season, but he may be leaning toward signing with a contender like the Mets. Last year the 31 year old right hander was 15-12 with an ERA of 3.49 in 32 starts. […]
According to Ronald Blum of the Associated Press, Mark McGwire finally came clean, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball’s home run record in 1998. McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade. During a 20-minute telephone interview shortly afterward, his voice repeatedly cracked. “It’s very emotional, it’s telling family members, friends and coaches, you know, it’s former teammates to […]
According to Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports, Cuban LHP Aroldis Chapman has agreed to a deal with the Cincinnati Reds. Cuban left-handed pitcher Aroldis Chapman, whose defection sparked a bidding war among major league teams that coveted his 100-mph fastball, agreed Sunday morning to sign for $30 million with the Cincinnati Reds, sources close the negotiations told Yahoo! Sports. By now I’m sure you all know the whole story about how Chapman defected, and how he once […]
