Free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran has a three-year, $48 million offer currently in hand, reports ESPN’s Buster Olney. Most reports have the mystery team as the Seattle Mariners who have been one of Beltran’s most aggressive suitors according to MLBTR. The Kansas City Royals met with the former Mets All Star today, and are also willing to give Beltran a three year deal. One team that shouldn’t be discounted is the New York Yankees who just […]
Adam Rubin now reports that the Mets are not super high on Arroyo, and a meeting may never take place, according to a team official. On Saturday, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told MMO that Arroyo would be willing to meet with the Mets, but that “no such date or plans for a meeting had ever been set with the Mets” despite earlier reports to the contrary. “There’s no truth to it.” After […]
The Mets are now looking more at second-tier and third-tier free agents according to Buster Olney of ESPN. Anything can still happen, but the three offseason predictions I made for the Mets before the hot stove season started, seem to all be coming to fruition. Back in September amid all the high hopes and expectations I said: 1. The Mets would not go after any players who’ll cost more than $10 million annually. 2. The […]
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 […]
Early Tuesday morning, Buster Olney reported that the Los Angeles Angels would be willing to trade Mark Trumbo or Peter Bourjos in exchange for pitching. Angels beat writer Alden Gonzalez also includes infielders Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar as pieces the Halos would deal for pitching. This is a road that the Mets have been down before and an actively debated one among Mets fans. While I’m not an advocate for trading any of the team’s […]
Buster Olney of ESPN is reporting that the Royals will be listening to offers for designated hitter and first baseman Billy Butler. Royals ready to talk about Billy Butler deal for teams that would take on DH owed $8 million in '14, $12m in 2015. — Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) October 22, 2013 Butler, 27, has $8 million owed to him for 2014, with a $12.5 million team option for 2015 with a $1 million buyout. The right-handed […]
In response to a question by Matt Cerrone, Buster Olney of ESPN said the Mets are going to have to start spending and even overpaying if they ever want to be in a position to compete. I think we can look at what the Seattle Mariners are going through, because I think they’re the closest comparison to what the Mets are going through right now. They have a star pitcher who can go out there every five […]
Susan Slusser of the SF Gate reported this morning on a botched call that resulted in Bob Melvin of the Oakland A’s being tossed kicking and screaming from a game against Cleveland last night for arguing after a home run review didn’t go his way. With two outs in the ninth, Adam Rosales hit a drive to left field that seemed to clearly hit a railing above the edge of the wall tying the game, […]
Buster Olney of ESPN.com reported that the Tampa Bay Rays will “probably” trade B.J. Upton over the offseason. The Rays came close to dealing their center fielder to the Washington Nationals prior to the trade deadline, but weren’t able to agree on the pieces before time ran out. Upton made $4.825 million in 2011 and is due for a raise in what will be his final year of arbitration. The Rays currently have Desmond Jennings waiting in the […]
