Outstanding article today by Wayne Coffey of the Daily News. In the article he talks to Willie candidly about the past and the future and even provides some depth with comments from Willie’s wife Gretchen and his son Andre. Here is how Willie weighed in on some of these important issues… His Approach – "I’ve always been into fundamentals, discipline, playing the game right. Sometimes you get back on your heels a little bit with that. That [...]
We may never know what caused the Mets and Yorvit Torrealba to cease all their negotiations. It’s obvious that there is more to this than meets the eye, but so far nobody is talking. Mums the word… I wouldn’t feel comfortable venturing a guess at this point, but I wanted to see what was being said on some of the Rockies blogs and found this posted a short time ago. It’s from one of their [...]
Much has been made about Paul Lo Duca’s clubhouse leadership and his on-the-field intensity. And now that the Mets have moved on without him, who will fill that void? Maybe the Mets are already seeking the answer to that question when they decided to meet with David Eckstein for dinner early this week. Willie Randolph, Omar Minaya and others, met with Eckstein to discuss his interest in filling the void at second base for the [...]
Everytime I go away for a few days it seems that’s when the Mets make some moves or something big happens in baseball. Wow… What an interesting 72 hours… First of all, I was very happy to see that the Mets finally addressed the catching situation and re-signed Ramon Castro, and went ahead and signed Yorvit Torrealba. I’ll miss Lo Duca as he was one of my favorite Mets, but the Mets really needed to [...]
It looks like the Mets have more interest in Livan Hernandez than they’ve been letting on. Livan is Orlando Hernandez’s hefty half brother. Both Rotoworld and Mark Hale of the Post are reporting some serious interest in the very mediocre innings eater. Livan Hernandez’s agent, Greg Genske, said the Mets are among the teams who have shown interest in the free-agent right-hander. Hernandez, who is Orlando Hernandez’s half-brother, went 11-11 with a 4.93 ERA this [...]
From the looks of things, it’s safe to say that the Paul Lo Duca era is over in New York. There will be no more Volare` or Smoke On The Water blasting from the Shea Stadium sound system. Paul Lo Duca has been handed his hat by Omar Minaya. He may lead you to believe things are cool with Lo Duca negotiations, but nothing can be further from the truth. Even Lo Duca’s agent will [...]
Last night during the SNY broadcast of Mets Hot Stove, David Wright who was a guest had plenty to say about the collapse, his gold glove, and his future with the Mets. The most telling part of his interview was when he was asked about what the Mets needed most. His reply was "Johan Santana would be a nice start, and Dan Haren wouldn’t be so bad either." I hope Omar was watching… Speaking about [...]
The Mets who were spurned last night by Jorge Posada, reportedly had discussions with Seth Levinson who represents not only Posad, but Luis Castillo and Ramon Castro as well. The Daily News reports that a potential 2-year deal is in the offing for backup catcher Ramon Castro. Castro had his finest season as a Met last year and proved to be not only a capable backup for Paul Lo Duca, but a valuable bat off the [...]
We’ve spent a lot of time pondering the question of who will be the New York Mets’ catcher when they report to Spring Training in 2008. Most fans, including me, hoped that it would be Paul Lo Duca, but now everything seems so hazy at best. Our friend Mark Hale of the NY Post, had this to say this morning in his column. There’s not much contact right now between the Mets and Paul Lo [...]
