“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. A bright and 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 the home run department. The Blue Jays, Rockies and Angels reportedly all had […]
I swear that over the past two months that Noah Syndergaard is the most talked about pitching prospect in all of baseball. It’s amazing, but everytime I turn around someone somewhere is gushing over the Mets’ prized righthander. While reading Baseball Prospectus, I came across a recent article in which they pointed out that Thor’s overall numbers in Double-A Binghamton were not only better than what he posted while at Advanced-A St. Lucie, but they were much […]
The Mets announced that they have signed signed IF/OF Anthony Seratelli and RHP Joel Carreno to minor league deals. Seratelli, 30, has played all four infield positions and some outfield while batting .276/.337/ .418 in his eight year minor league career. The New Jersey native batted .273 last season with 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 487 plate appearances for Triple-A Omaha in the Royals organization. Carreno, 26, was signed out of the Dominican Republic by the […]
Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors, expects that free-agent starting pitcher Josh Johnson will eventually sign a one-year deal worth a guaranteed $8 million and an additional $5 million in incentive bonuses. With Matt Harvey all but done until the 2015 season, and the Mets in the market for a veteran starter to bolster the rotation, why not bring Johnson in for one year as he looks to reestablish his value while giving the Mets a pitcher with a […]
It has been officially a week since the 2013 Mets campaign has ended – even though we pretty much knew that it was over just before the All Star Break. We saw some good baseball amidst the very bad . We saw Matt Harvey dominate before being banished to the disabled list . We saw Juan Lagares look like the second coming of Tommie Agee with the glove – now if only he can hit. We saw a team […]
D. Stankiewicz asks… With all this talk that adding a shortstop will be one of our main offseason goals, I hear and read a lot about Stephen Drew and Troy Tulowitzki, but never a word about bringing back the best shortstop this team ever had, Jose Reyes. Is there any chance that we could work out a deal with Toronto to bring back the best shortstop this franchise ever had? Joe D. replies… I agree […]
One of our readers, Rob Aguilar, sent me a link to February’s Off-Season Report Cards by the Sporting News. His point, as he indicated in his email, was that nobody was gloating over the Red Sox model before this past season began. Anyway, it’s funny looking back and reading these three particular capsules in hindsight. Toronto Blue Jays: A When general manager Alex Anthopoulos finally made his move, he didn’t mess around. The impact was felt all […]
Now that all the sorting out has been completed, the Mets will officially be selecting in the No. 10 slot for the 2014 First Year Player Draft. The Mets “earn” a protected pick going into the 2013-14 offseason. Here’s the official order for next June’s first round which includes the consolation pick for the Toronto Blue Jays: 1. Astros (2013 record: 51-111) 2. Marlins (62-100) 3. White Sox (63-99) 4. Cubs (66-96) 5. Twins (66-96) 6. Mariners (71-91) 7. Phillies (73-89) 8. Rockies (74-88) 9. Blue Jays (74-88) 10. Mets (74-88) 11. Blue Jays (for failure […]
Someone asked me today if we should just go ahead and send Daniel Murphy to the bench in a super utility type role. “Of course”. I responded. Looking at how far his defense has been regressing and how inconsistent his bat has been, it’s no big secret how this movie is going to end. Once Wilmer Flores gets this so called shot at second base, and if he can prove to be adequate, that will […]
