Updated Post 8:00 PM John Harper of the Daily News reports the following: “Heard tonight that Mets’ owners will not stretch the budget due to high cost of free agents. Sandy Alderson has $25-30 million to spend and no more. Good luck with that.” So much for that $35-40 million… I don’t mean to laugh here, but this offseason just keeps getting funnier and funnier… Original Post 12:00 PM After two weeks, the Mets, like many […]
Free agent outfielder/first baseman Corey 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 is I don’t get cleared until Dec. 3,” Hart said. “We have plenty of teams calling and checking in to see how I’m doing, but until the doctor says I’m 100%, they’re going to hold off until […]
The Yankees, according to rival international scouts, are planning to splurge on foreign amateurs during the 2013-14 signing period. They already have surpassed their bonus pool allotment of $1,877,000, and rival clubs expect them to possibly incur the maximum penalties for exceeding the spending limit, according to a report by Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. The Yankees’ strategy should not come as a surprise, writes Rosenthal. considering the depleted state of their farm system. The Cubs […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright“ It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. An bright, new, shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in last season’s home run department. However the […]
The Mets signed Darrell Ceciliani in the 4th round of the 2009 MLB June Amateur Draft from Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA.

On Thursday, MLB owners unanimously voted on funding that would expand instant replay in baseball. There are still plenty of details that need to be worked out before the final votes by the owners are cast, but pending player’s union approval, it looks like this is going to be a go. This is something that has been in the works since the summer. Touching on it briefly, it looks as if managers will be allowed […]
The 2013-2014 offseason features a deep class of quality talent ripe for the picking of any team willing to spend. Based upon GM Sandy Alderson’s comments at year’s end as well as the Mets reported discussions, it appears clear that the major focus is to acquire at least two position players: a shortstop and an outfielder. Conveniently enough, there are two free agents on the market capable of filling each of those positions with great […]
You can’t make this stuff up… Sandy Alderson completely contradicted everything Jeff Wilpon said earlier today about “something cooking” and a move to come later after meeting with a player last night… Sandy Alderson insisted there was nothing close. "No, no, no." #mets — Adam Rubin (@AdamRubinESPN) November 13, 2013 Sandy Alderson seemed geniunely surprised when told that his boss indicated the Mets were close on something. — Mike Puma (@NYPost_Mets) November 13, 2013 Original […]
Marc Carig tweeted out that a source tells him the Mets have shown interest in the outfielder Chris Young. Young, who turned 30 in September, hit just .200/.280/.379 with 12 homers and 10 steals in 2013 after coming over from the D-Backs in the three-team deal that sent Heath Bell and Cliff Pennington to Arizona and prospects to the Marlins.
