Nats Sign Nate McLouth The Nationals agreed to terms on a two-year deal with free agent outfielder and left-handed hitter Nate McLouth, according to the Washington Post. McLouth spent most of the past two seasons serving as Baltimore’s primary left fielder last season. McLouth, 32, played 146 games for the Orioles and posted a .258/.329/.400 slash with a .729 OPS. McLouth boasts a career .334 on-base percentage and won a Gold Glove for his center […]
Fan Shot By David Eckert Starting Pitcher It has been relatively well documented that the Mets are expected to be players in the starting pitching market this year. Some think that they might be interested in a guy like Bronson Arroyo. I am completely against making a move for any starting pitcher that is going to command a multiyear deal and over $5 million. As of right now, the locks in the Mets rotation are […]
If you had to pick three words to best describe the Mets offseason so far – the offseason we’ve all waited three years for – those are the three words right there… Nothing is imminent. The Mets sent a contingent of scouts and executives to watch Jose Dariel Abreu. But nothing is imminent. The Mets met face to face with Jhonny Peralta. But nothing is imminent.

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 […]
Pittsburgh Pirates prospect Evan Chambers passed away in his sleep this past weekend as noted in a statement by Pirates GM Neal Huntington. The Pirates signed Chambers after selecting him in the 3rd round of the 2009 June Amateur draft from Hillsborough Community College (Tampa, FL.). He played in 5 seasons within the Pirates farm system, but he missed most of 2013 with a broken foot. Chambers was remembered around baseball, as well from some of […]
It’s no secret that the Mets are in the market for a starting pitcher this winter. All talks to this point have surrounded their pursuit of free agent arms but their reluctance to overpay has seen them sit idly by while most of the top arms are finding their destinations. With talent on the market diminishing, the Mets need to expand their search to the trade market. The ideal situation would have been to find […]
A source told MMO on Saturday that the New York Mets have not contacted free agent Cory Hart or made any offer to the former Brewers first baseman. “There’s been a few teams, but the Mets are not one of them.” Last week, Hart said that while there’s been plenty of interest in him from teams in both the AL and NL, there’s some hesitation until he gets medical clearance from doctors. “What’s so hard right now […]
