One rival GM who we spoke to this morning, would not deny or confirm this morning’s report by Jim Duquette of Sirius Radio that the Mets asked the Baltimore Orioles for top prospect Dylan Bundy in exchange for Daniel Murphy. However he did say,”If that’s true, there’s no chance they trade Murphy…Murphy is a nice little player, but I can’t see any team willing to part with a young live arm like that for his […]
Sandy Alderson clarified his comments during his briefing tonight when he told reporters that he is now working with an $85 million payroll figure. What he meant to say was that payroll would not be lower than $85 million which was $2 million less than his original $87 million base. I wish he would stop talking about this already and just improve the team. Last season, the Mets payroll was $88.9 million which ranked in the […]
I had an interesting conversation with a someone whose profile tabbed him as a baseball expert. The guy was also a die-hard Met fan. I found him to be representative of most of the Met fans I know from Mets Twitter. I thought I’d kill some time late last night and chatted with many of my now 8,000+ followers. It all started with “I thought you said the Arroyo meeting with the Mets rumor was […]
There was an interesting post today by Adam Rubin, where he writes that free-agent reliever David Aardsma shared his displeasure with players that cheat the game, come back from suspension, and are rewarded with huge contracts. He doesn’t name any player by name, but most recently Jhonny Peralta signed with the Cardinals for 4 years, $52 million contract, so anyone can assume that maybe he is referring to that contract. But I have to agree with Aardsma, […]
According to earlier reports, the Mets had some interest in free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York immediately downplayed the Mets interest writing that they were not nearly as interested in Cruz as some reports have indicated. Today, Jerry Crasnick reports that Cruz’ salary demands have now exceeded the Mets’ appetite, according to a source. This may explain signing Chris Young today for one of the two available corner outfield spots. I hope the reports are […]
The Rockies agreed to terms with veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins on a one-year, $2.25 million deal, last night. The contract includes a $2.25MM option for 2015 with a $250K buyout and will be official once Hawkins passes a physical on Thursday. Hawkins will close games for Colorado who get themselves a steal. Sandy Alderson weighed in on the deal this afternoon and according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the issue was not closing games, it […]
Kristie Ackert of the Daily News reports that Sandy Alderson has not made any offers to players or teams. “We met with some clubs, we met with some agents, we laid some groundwork,” Alderson said before leaving. “We had some phone calls, because some agents didn’t attend these meetings.We made progress.” “No,” Alderson said about having offers out on the table. There’s a post on MetsBlog that the Mets spoke to the Orioles about Nick […]
A quick update from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, who today wrote: “Don’t be surprised if the Mets also trade second baseman Daniel Murphy, one of their best hitters. Murphy is drawing interest from clubs that envision him at second, third or as a super-utility type, and while his departure would hurt the Mets short-term, he is unlikely to still be with the club by the time it contends again.” Yesterday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New […]
Here are two different pieces of news from yesterday, both involving the Mets interest in the pitching market… According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are not seriously considering a reunion with former first round pick Scott Kazmir. Kazmir, who is coming off a solid season with the Indians, is looking to after a multi-year deal and the Indians are unwilling to give him one. It’s likely the Mets will be hesistant […]
