Could Michael Cuddyer join his best friend David Wright in Flushing? As we continue our quest for a winning team, we look at acquiring an outfielder. To begin with, it sounds easier than it really is. In July, teams traded their players – Alex Rios, Michael Morse, Justin Maxwell – because their chances of competing were slim. So, you trade today for a shot at tomorrow, theoretically. However, trading a star player is not easy. […]
7/31 Update It’s been a very quiet deadline with the Jake Peavy to the Red Sox trade being the loudest shot fired in the last 48 hours. But things are picking up on the Marlon Byrd front, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The Mets are suddenly getting hits on the veteran outfielder and they have apparently made counteroffers to some clubs and are now waiting to see if anyone budges. The Pirates are […]
Major League Baseball has reportedly informed the union of which players they intend to suspend in the Biogenesis case according to the Associated Press. Alex Rodriguez highlights the list of those expected to be punished, however a number of other prominent players could face bans that could significantly impact the playoff hunt, forcing several potentially affected teams into a last-minute frenzy for insurance now a mere hours before the 4pm trade deadline. One of those […]
Ah, the trading deadline; my favorite time of year. It’s the midseason plot point where words like “blockbuster” are thrown around like clothes in a dryer and can change the fate of any team. I don’t think a blockbuster is in the Mets’ near future. I do believe there are trades that can be made if Sandy Alderson decides to lift his backside from his chair and pull his hands out. One idea I’ve been […]
So in yesterday’s MiLB Report, Adam Rubin noted that Wilmer Flores would miss the Triple-A All-Star game with an ankle injury — but the injury itself is considered to be minor. It’s bad timing for Flores, but his longterm health is more important than one exhibition game. One of the things that might have went by the boards in the report, however, was this… After primarily playing second base with the 51s this season, four of Flores’ […]
The guys over at IMG and Subway were kind enough to allow me to attend a Media Event through MetsMerized, where I got to meet Jared (“The Subway Guy”) and our former manager, Willie Randolph. Right off the bat, I took one look at Randolph and realized that he doesn’t seem to have aged at all — slap a Mets cap on the man and he looks the same as he did when we let […]
Look at that scoreboard and count all of them zeroes! What an amazing game tonight by the ace of the staff Matt Harvey who tossed nine scoreless innings tonight as the Mets beat the Chicago White Sox by the score of 1-0 on a tenth inning walk-off double by pinch hitter Mike Baxter. The Mets phenom took a perfect game into the seventh inning until Alex Rios hit a grounder deep in the hole to Ruben Tejada who […]
Brace yourself my friends… According to the Tyler Kepner of the New York Times, the White Sox have acquired Alex Rios from the Blue Jays. It’s a straight waiver claim, so the Blue Jays will receive nothing in return. Says Jays GM J.P. Ricciardi: “This allows us to get out from under a contract and do more to address our club.” ESPN is now confirming. Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios has been claimed off waivers by […]
Buster Olney of ESPN is reporting that a waiver claim has been placed on Toronto Blue Jays right fielder Alex Rios by an unknown team.. The 28-year-old Rios is batting .261 with 12 homers and 58 RBIs this season. He has a hefty contract that is paying him $5.9 million this season, $9.7 million in 2010, $12 million in 2011, $12 million in 2012, $12.5 million in 2013 and $12.5 million in 2014. Once a player is […]
