I have put a lot of thought into what our priorities should be this off season and how to build a contender. What do you think of this plan? I would first pursue a trade, something that shows the FA market that we do actually want to improve this year, i.e. Dexter Fowler. He’s entering the prime of his career and could be an excellent chip toward making our lineup dangerous. I imagine Daniel Murphy […]
Could Michael Cuddyer join his best friend David Wright in Flushing? As we continue our quest for a winning team, we look at acquiring an outfielder. To begin with, it sounds easier than it really is. In July, teams traded their players – Alex Rios, Michael Morse, Justin Maxwell – because their chances of competing were slim. So, you trade today for a shot at tomorrow, theoretically. However, trading a star player is not easy. […]
If you’re a true baseball fan, you’ve got to admit it; you’re going to miss Jim Leyland. He’s one of those guys you either love or hate – or maybe love to hate. But deep down inside, we all love the man because we love the sport and he’s been a part of the very fabric of baseball. It’s a little like one of your favorite stars leaving your favorite soap opera; it will never […]
A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. I read the names and had to laugh. The dichotomy between these two clubs in New […]
To Mets Management: I am a lifelong Mets fan. I have been to many games over my 49 years. Now that I have children, I have brought them to many Mets games. We have a family business in New Jersey and have been season ticket holders for the last two years. As budget’s tighten businesses need to make wise decisions on how to spend their money. We will be deciding soon, whether to continue to […]
Here’s a post from diehardmets who gives a good example of what the Mets offseason might look like using the Boston Red Sox model from last Winter. The question is where do you want to spend. Overpaying on Shin-Soo Choo or Jacoby Ellsbury is just repeating the mistakes of the past. I would think our fans are intelligent enough to remember Jason Bay and realize that repeating that mistake for even more years and money is not […]
This latest Fan Shot comes from 12-year old Haley Smilow who has been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to interview several Major League Baseball Players over the last couple of years. Her family began a quest in 2011 to visit all 30 ballparks and by the end of this summer they will have reached 22. The following is a Q&A that Haley conducted with Mets utility infielder Justin Turner. I’m sure you’ll all agree […]
Updating this Fan Shot by by Long Suffering Met Fan with this breaking news… Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com is reporting that Cuban first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu has officially been declared a free agent and is now eligible to sign with any Major League club. MLB Trade Rumors adds that Abreu “promises to become one of the most sought-after right-handed bats” on the free agent market. The San Francisco Giants are considered to be the heavy […]
Opening Day Lead-off Man, Collin Cowgill On September 22, 2013, Rob Rogan of Mets360.com wrote an article titled, The 2013 Mets were worse than you thought.
