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 […]
Baseball America on Friday listed the Nine Key Players To Watch In Winter Ball and #8 on their list was Mets Top Prospect Cesar Puello. After missing the rest of the 2013 season due to being handed a 50 game suspension in early August for his involvement in the Biogenesis scandal, he is in winter ball working towards regaining the swing that helped him put up some tremendous numbers in the first half with the B- Mets where […]
After the Mets officially declined the 2014 option on Johan Santana earlier today, the veteran lefthander issued the following statement to the team and the fans… “I want to thank the Mets organization, my teammates and of course give a big thank you to the Mets fans, who have been behind me from day one and stood by me through all the good and bad.” “I am not sure what the future holds, as this is all new […]
The level of uncertainty surrounding Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, considered by far the best free agent pitcher this offseason, continues to confound the entire baseball industry, from the agents trying to represent him to the teams wanting to sign him to the system that will determine where he ultimately lands, writes Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. All parties agree on only one thing: Tanaka is going to be the most expensive import in baseball history. […]
Second baseman Mark Ellis and left-handed pitcher Chris Capuano became free agents Thursday as the Dodgers declined to exercise their options for next season. The steady-fielding Ellis became expendable when the Dodgers signed Cuban infielder Alexander Guerrero to a four-year, $28-million contract. Guerrero is expected to replace Ellis at second base. Ellis, 36 and a Gold Glove finalist, batted .270/.323/.343 last season with six home runs and 48 RBIs. His option was worth $5.75 million and he earned $5.25 in 2013. Capuano, […]
“The Mets aren’t ready to trade most of their team just yet.” writes Dan Martin of the New York Post. That was his takeaway after listening to Mets GM Sandy Alderson respond to comments made by the team’s COO Jeff Wilpon on Tuesday. While there’s no doubt Jeff Wilpon was correct in pointing out the Mets have “definite deficiencies” on the roster heading into the offseason, Alderson said he believed Wilpon was speaking “off the […]
What would it take this offseason for the Mets to contend for a Wild Card in 2014 as Sandy Alderson asserts? Xtreem – Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler need to step up and find some way to alleviate the loss of Matt Harvey as best they can. You can’t replace the best pitcher in the game, but they have to try. DrDooby – I believe that adding one impact outfielder (like Choo, Beltran, Ellsbury), a […]
Nick asks… Is Juan Lagares an everyday player? He seems more like a Endy Chavez defensive substitute type to me, but I keep hearing that he has a hold on the everyday center field job. Do you think his bat will develop or will we see the same offensive production we saw last season? Any idea what kind of numbers we should look forward to? Teddy replies… I don’t think Lagares is a defensive substitute […]
On Monday night, righthander Matt Harvey declared himself “ahead of schedule,” six days after undergoing the surgery, according to a report this morning from the Daily News. “I am just doing range of motion stuff now, but today was the first day I could take the bandages off and I was at Hospital for Special Surgery working and everybody thinks I am ahead of schedule,” Harvey told the Daily News in his first comments since […]
