With only five days left until Christmas and 12 days until the start of 2010, the New York Mets still find themselves needing to address the same areas as they did on October 1st when the season ended for them. The Mets did sign a backup catcher in Henry Blanco for a tidy sum of $750 K, and re-signed Alex Cora for more than twice that, but for a team that finished last in MLB […]
The New York Mets must be banging their heads on the wall right now as the off season continues to evolve into a public relations nightmare. As Omar and Jeff make appointments to see their chiropractors to have their necks checked out, after suffering some severe whiplash last night courtesy of the Phillies and Red Sox, the hits just keep coming in for the woeful Mets. According to a tweet from Ken Davidoff of Newsday, one of their top […]
Steve Popper of the Bergen Record is reporting that the Mets will make two contract offers before leaving the Winter Meetings today. Based on additional reporting from Adam Rubin of the Daily News, one of those offers will most likely be to free-agent catcher Bengie Molina. Earlier reports yesterday that the Mets had already made an offer turned out to be inaccurate. Also, there is some buzz around Twitter that the second offer could be for starting pitcher John Lackey. However, […]
MLB Insider Jon Heyman of SI.com tweets that the Mets are now engaging John Lackey, Matt Holliday, and Jason Bay with renewed hopes of signing one of them. Purse strings opening for Omar? Mets are talking to Lackey, Holliday and Bay with renewed hopes to sign one of big three. I’m not buying into anything until we get something more substantial, but at least that bit of news is somewhat hopeful. Of course the big news this morning […]
Yesterday the winter meetings officially began in Indianapolis and as usual some trades were apparently made and then it turned out that there was no trade. In some cases the two teams involved in the trade had not even spoken to each other. This is the joys of covering the winter meetings. In the case of the Mets a Philadelphia paper reported that the Mets traded Luis Castillo as part of 3 team trade that had […]
According to Jon Heyman who was a guest on MLB Network’s Hot Stove show, the Mets may be readying an offer for free agent catcher Bengie Molina. On his blog at SI.com, Heyman wrote, The Mets are considering a bid of about $6 million for one guaranteed year plus a second-year option for free-agent catcher Bengie Molina, whom they have made their top catching target. Heyman added that there’s a possibility that the Mets […]
The 2009 MLB Winter Meetings are now underway in Indianapolis, and will provide fans with either much joy or just as much angst. Last year’s Winter Meetings certainly fit that bill. In 2008, we suffered through another miserable bullpen, and it seemed like money would be no object to revamp it in the off season. GM Omar Minaya was under the gun to retool the bullpen and deliver a winner. This year, the details of need are […]
The Mets have a lot of holes to fill in 2010. They need an actual number 2 pitcher in the rotation; they need a set-up guy in the bullpen, a left fielder and a catcher. Last week I addressed the left field situation and a lot of you readers had a few opinions to say the least on my choices on who should play left field for us in 2010 but I still stand by […]
