Since Buster Olney first reported that the Mets had interest in reliever/starter Alfredo Aceves last week, there have been a couple of updates on him. MLB Trade Rumors reported that the righthander re-hired agent Tom O’Connell to represent him recently, and that Aceves called O’Connell and apologized for firing him in the first place. Marc Carig of Newsday also added that the Mets’ interest in Aceves appears to be for only a minor-league deal, according to a […]
Winter 2004. It was a great time to be a Mets fan. As cameras clicked away and members of the press took their seats, all eyes were focused on the recently acquired outfielder. With Jeff Wilpon on one side and wife Jessica on the other, Carlos Beltran donned a Mets cap for the very first time. Suddenly, General Manager Omar Minaya appeared. He rode on to the stage on a tricycle. Dressed as a clown […]
The Mets have competition in attempting to re-sign LaTroy Hawkins, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The Colorado Rockies are among the teams pursuing the free-agent reliever, according to a source. Still, that does not mean that Colorado is a likely landing spot. I have a hunch that while some teams may be jumping on his bandwagon, ultimately Hawkins will re-sign with the Mets. Original Post 11/6 Kristie Ackert of the Daily News is reporting that LaTroy Hawkins, undoubtedly […]
What a difference three days makes… The Giants and right-hander Tim Lincecum agreed to a two-year, $35 million deal Tuesday, pending a physical. Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, was days away from becoming a free agent for the first time, but the Giants were able to get a deal done before that could happen. Lincecum, 29, is 89-70 in seven seasons with the Giants with a 3.46 ERA. He was 10-14 last season […]
John Harper pens a piece in Saturday’s New York Daily News urging the Mets to stay with the concept of rebuilding around their young pitching corps. It’s Harper’s contention that the stunning performance of so many young pitching gun’s in this fall’s post season has fortified the Met front office belief that they need to be extraordinarily careful in considering trading any of their young pitchers. I certainly hope Harper’s assertion is right. Harper quoted an unnamed Met source as […]
As the post season crawls to a close, thus ushering in the hot stove season, there seems to be a growing tide of great and unrealistic expectations for players the Mets could or should target. Over at MetsBlog, they’ve spent this weekend writing multiple times about Tim Lincecum as well as other potential free agents or players presumed to be on the block like Mike Napoli, Jacoby Ellsbury, Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp. Readers here […]
On Friday, middle reliever Jason Frasor and the Texas Rangers agreed to a one-year deal worth $1.75 million with another $250,000 in incentives based on number of appearances. “It’s just nice to know at this point. The World Series isn’t even over and one of the best teams in baseball wants you back,” Frasor said. These deals are somewhat uncommon because of the lure of free agency, assistant general manager Thad Levine said, but the team […]
There were a lot of statistics that added up to give the Mets their second straight 74-88 record in 2013. Here are some of the more notable, some good, some bad and some down right ugly. I am sure there are more and would love to hear your suggestions: 1: The number of fingers Terry Collins held up when the Mets walked off the field on the last day of the 2013 season. 2: Home games sold […]
During today’s Mets’ 1-0 win over the Reds, starting catcher Juan Centeno became the first backstop to ever catch Billy Hamilton stealing in the majors. After Hamilton legged out an infield single in the fifth inning, the 23-year old Centeno gunned a perfect throw to nail the speedster at second base. In case you missed it, here’s the video: Entering today’s action, Hamilton had 13 straight steals to begin his major league career. Last season, Hamilton stole […]
