Welcome to the second installment of Where Are They Now?, where we take a Mets roster and check in on what the players have done since last playing in Queens. Last week, we looked at the 2010 Mets, so this week we go back a year and look at the 2009 team, the first year the Mets played their home games at Citi Field. That season, Jerry Manuel led his squad to a 70-92 record, […]
If you are a Mets fan, you know that David Wright is still with team, or that Jose Reyes and Carlos Beltran are in Toronto and St. Louis, respectively. But what happened to guys like Nick Evans or Rod Barajas? We have the answers. 11 Players who made it into a game in 2010 with the Mets, are still employed by the team. That would be the aforementioned David Wright, Ike Davis, Ruben Tejada (Although […]
Alex Cora has had plenty to say about his time with the Mets since he was released by the team last week. He’s been making the rounds on sports talk radio, and yesterday he shed some light during an appearance on the Boomer & Carton show on WFAN. Like the professional that he is, Cora had no hard feelings against his former team who released him just before a $2 million dollar option was going to kick […]
Update 12:30 PM The Mets have released infielder Alex Cora and demoted outfielder Jesus Feliciano to make room for Fernando Martinez and Ruben Tejada who will both be in uniform for today’s game. Cora appeared in 62 games for the Mets this year and was 18 games shy of having his 2011 option automatically vest at $2 million. So that’s that… The mystery has been solved… We still have Oliver Perez… We still have Luis Castillo… […]
After tonight’s loss, David Lennon of Newsday provided us with an interesting moment that took place in the clubhouse when Alex Cora took exception to the jovial clubhouse environment after the loss. Another one of those intangibles that doesn’t show up in the stats, but could make a positive impact in a different way nonetheless. Hat tip to Bayonne Met Fan
This afternoon, Adam Rubin, Mets beat writer for ESPN NY, had a live chat and one of the more interesting things that came out of it was some information regarding a vesting option that Alex Cora has in his contract. Q – Doesn’t Cora’s option vest with 80 starts, not 80 appearances? It’s bad enough with 80 starts, you’re freaking me out with the 80 appearances thing A – I asked Alex yesterday, and he […]
Last night’s epic 20 inning marathon between the Cardinals and the Mets had more ups and downs than a ride on the Cyclone in Coney Island. When the game finally came to an end and I saw Luis Castillo field the grounder off the bat of Ryan Ludwick and fire it to Mike Jacobs at first base for the final out. it took a couple of minutes for me to finally rise up and cheer like […]
It seems like the more things change, the more they stay the same. After coming off a miserable season that was marred by injury in 2009, what made that season worse than it should have been was the apparent lack of depth. Carlos Delgado goes down and is replaced by untested leftfielder Daniel Murphy… Jose Reyes goes down and is replaced by Alex Cora… In both instances the downgrades were too much to overcome. Of […]
Competition is a good thing, and in Mets camp there is a lot of it. Many players have entered Mets camp this year hopeful they can win a job with the big league club. Let’s break down this completion position by position and name the favorites. Center Field – Carlos Beltran’s injury leaves a void in center field. The Mets acquired Gary Mathews Jr. to compete with Angel Pagan for the opening day center field […]
