The Yankees and the Twins have begun talks about a trade that could send Johan Santana to the Bronx. The Yankees would have to give up one of their "Big Three" pitchers-Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy, or Philip Hughes. Other teams, including the Mets, have also expressed interest in Santana. The New York Post’s Mark Hale reports that the Mets have an interest in Santana, even if the Wilpons haven’t openly expressed it. The deal would [...]
The Cubs made sure they hung on to their one-time phenom, Kerry Wood, if only for just one more year. The contract guarantees him $4.2 million and Wood can earn an additional $3.45 million in performance bonuses. It appears that Kerry Wood turned down offers that were much more lucrative and longer as well. Wow, what a steal. I sure would have loved to see Kerry Wood in a Mets uniform. I have always loved [...]
The Twins and Hank Steinbrenner himself have confirmed that they are in ongoing negotiations for prized all star pitcher, Johan Santana. According to Associated Press they are at the preliminary stage of negotiations. Well Mets fans, it doesn’t mean the Yankees are a lock to get them, but they certainly are the favorites when you consider they are already negotiating ahead of the Winter Meetings which are over a week away. Of course as a [...]

Fernando Martinez, OF, Grade B+ Deolis Guerra, RHP, Grade B+ Carlos Gomez, OF, Grade B (undecided, may raise to B+. You guys are right about the injuries, but you also [...]
On Thanksgiving Day, Wallace Matthews basically wrote an article just for the sake of bashing the Mets. He could have probably gotten away with that since Newsday is based in New York. Outside of the state of New York, I assure you, Wallace Matthews would be without a job. There’s a fine line in journalism that should never be crossed. Ever. The Miami Dolphins are 0-10 (soon to be 0-11), but not one Florida newspaper has [...]
Wallace Matthews of Newsday, has done it again. On Thanksgiving Day he chose to write an article with the sole intent of bashing the New York Mets. Here are some of his comments… It is Turkey Day, which means it is once again time to brine, stuff, baste and roast the Mets. Having enjoyed more free rides this offseason than a serial turnstile-jumper circa 1977, the Mets made a comeback on Tuesday by trading Guillermo [...]
the turkey has finally been picked to the bone… The annoying relatives have left until next year, dishes have been done and everyone is thankful Uncle Ralph remembered his Beano. It’s true folks, Thanksgiving is over and the nightmare that is Christmas shopping has begun. However, this being MetsMerized and me being a Mets fanatic, the only shopping I want to think about is what Omar is putting in the Mets basket. So far all [...]
In the eyes of Mets fans aplenty, Paul Lo Duca and Guillermo Mota were two different people. As the Rolling Stones once said, "You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you might just find that you get what you need." Paul Lo Duca couldn’t wait to re-sign with the Mets. New York is his home, a true blue Brooklyn boy. However, Omar Minaya and the front office decided on September [...]

One of the bigger names on this years free agent market has now found a home. Former Twins outfielder Torii Hunter has just signed a 5-year deal worth as much as $80 million dollars to play for the Los Angeles Angels, according to ESPN.
