A Fan Shot By Terence Farley When thinking of an outfield bat for the Mets, the one player I knew I didn’t want was Andre Ethier. He doesn’t have enough power, he can’t hit lefties and he makes a lot of money. The player I wanted was Shin-Soo Choo Then it came out that he probably is out of the Mets financial parameters. When I heard that Choo doesn’t hit lefties particularly well, I wondered […]
You know that commercial for Capital One, the “What’s in your wallet” ad? It’s a good thing no one looks at my wallet, it’s stuffed with everything except money. It’s like a small leather file cabinet. Reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where George starts having sciatica problems because of the imbalance caused from carrying his massively stuffed wallet in his right back pocket. The episode culminates with the wallet exploding as he crosses the […]
I just finished reading the full transcript of what Ryan Braun said in his press conference with reporters this morning. A media session that lasted 30 minutes and yielded anything of substance. You can read the full Q&A here, but don’t expect much in the way of answers to the questions that were posed to him. Why did you lie? “Obviously I’ve been through a lot and as I expressed in my statement that I […]
Bronson Arroyo, the free agent pitcher who last year pitched for the Cincinnati Reds, was Mike Francesa’s guest on WFAN Tuesday afternoon and expressed interest in possibly pitching next season for the Mets. A flyball pitcher who allows a high number of home runs, Arroyo likes the idea of taking his game to the cavernous setting of Citi Field. Arroyo called himself a strike thrower, one of the reasons he cedes so many long balls, […]
“We’ve already made offers on several players,” Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr. said from Arizona, where he is watching some of the organization’s top young talent participate in the Arizona Fall League. Todd Knowing that there is a lack of power hitters available, Amaro is perhaps making a push to sign one, as the team needs right-handed hitters, reports Todd Zolecki of MLB.com. Some of the names being linked to the Phillies include Nelson Cruz, Carlos Beltran and Michael […]
It has been no surprise that after five straight losing seasons, any optimism that coincided with the arrival of Sandy Alderson and team Moneyball has now subsided into a cynicism and even a resentment of the current power brokers at the helm. Second and Third guessing any decisions made by the current front office reflect the dismay which the current fandom, including many of us in the blogosphere, who are sick to death of the […]
The Mets have multiple needs if they have any hope of being a contender in 2014 as we all know, but certainly at the top of that list is the acquisition of a legitimate power hitter to hit behind David Wright. While I certainly have no inside information on the subject, let’s just suppose that the Blue Jays realize that sending Noah Syndergaard to the Mets in the R.A. Dickey deal was a mistake that […]
With the deadline for the 40 man roster decisions looming, the Mets have many difficult decisions to make. One player the Mets will have to decide to protect is outfielder Cory Vaughn. Vaughn is a powerful right handed slugger who has been inconsistent throughout his minor league career. Despite his power potential, I believe Mets should not protect him on the 40 man roster. Vaughn has an impressive combination of power and speed, but he […]
Hodges14 asks… Exactly what does a hitting coach get judged by? How do you measure whether or not he’s doing an effective job? I would think it’s things like improving the team’s overall batting average and reducing strikeouts, so why is Dave Hudgens coming back? There’s a better case to be made for firing Hudgens than there ever was for firing Howard Johnson. I just don’t understand the front office’s fixation and obsession with this […]
