According to John Harper of the Daily News, the Angels may be willing to trade outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. to the Mets for second baseman Luis Castillo. Matthews is still owed close to $22.5 million over the next two seasons. Last night, I spoke to someone with knowledge of the situation, who told me that the Angels would be willing to eat a good chunk of that contract if they could find a taker. The Angels would like […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com reported via Twitter that the Mets attempts to try and sign free agent starter Randy Wolf appear to be “fruitless”. It now appears almost certain that he will sign with the Milwaukee Brewers for three years and approximately $9 million dollars per season. The Wolf to the Brewers rumors really intensified last night, but earlier today some had reported that the Mets still had a chance to cut in and make a move. However those efforts now […]

When yesterday’s midnight deadline finally came and went, the Mets decided to stand pat and did not offer arbitration to any of their six remaining free agents. Carlos Delgado and Fernando Tatis, both Type B free agents, are not totally out of the picture yet, and the Mets could still opt to bring both of them back. As much as I like both of them, I just think it’s time to move on and change […]
