In 2007, 2008 and now in 2010 the Mets needed to upgrade their team during the season by making a trade. In 2007 the Mets needed to add a starter to the rotation. They did not add a starting pitcher and wound up having an epic collapse. The Mets didn’t end making trade as Omar would go onto say “nothing really made sense.” The 2008 New York Mets desperately needed an arm in the bullpen, […]
As we wrap up a hectic week of Cliff Lee posts on MMO, it’s only fitting to put some closure on the matter from the perspective of where the Mets stood, what the Mariners wanted, and how far the Mets were willing to go. To begin, according to reports in both the Daily News and the NY Post, the Seattle Mariners wanted Ike Davis in any deal for Cliff Lee, a price that was too […]
It’s over… According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Texas Rangers have indeed acquired Cliff Lee from the Seattle Mariners. The Rangers are sending a package that will include one of baseball’s best prospects in Justin Smoak as well as two to three other top Rangers prospects. Interesting as well is that the the Mariners are kicking in a portion of Lee’s salary as part of the deal according to Bob Nightengale of […]
With trade discussions between the Texas Rangers and the Seattle Mariners now appearing to be heating up, it adds yet another serious contender in addition to the Minnesota Twins into the mix to acquire starting pitcher Cliff Lee. The price continues to rise for Lee’s services and the latest reports say the Mariners have called teams asking for two blue-chip prospects plus a third young player in return. Yesterday, Ken Davidoff of Newsday tweeted that the Mets […]
The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend. Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance. And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber game against the Reds tonight, it won’t matter what the Braves do in Philly–the Mets will be 1 or 2 […]
Cliff Lee is one of the best pitchers in the game. Last year’s performance in the World Series was spectacular. Lee was brilliant against one of the best if not the best lineup in the game in 2 starts. The two games that the Phillies won were Lee’s in the Fall Classic. It’s now 2010 and Cliff Lee is now a member of the Seattle Mariners. Lee is having an amazing first half for Seattle. […]
Rarely, if ever, has a team gone from 92 losses in a season to over 90 victories and a World Championship the following year. That is, however, what all Mets fans are fantasizing about for 2010. And with the way the Mets have played in June, expectations have risen, and demands on the team and management to play better and improve the roster have grown. What’s happening is a good thing. Fans are excited again […]
A few weeks ago, before the blogosphere erupted with stories about the Mets trading for either Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt, I wrote an article here on MMO, The New Mets Ace In The Hole. Since then there have been more Cliff Lee/Roy Oswalt stories than Charlie Sheen has DUI’s. I think Michael Branda (Jessup) said it best in his article, Ranking The Potentially Available Pitchers: “I decided last night that I am officially tired […]
All season long so many of us have dissected in every which way possible, every move the New York Mets have made. Granted some of us have used hacksaws and some of us have used the precision of a neurosurgeon, to make our points. I’ve occasionally waded in both pools, admittedly. The way the Mets have played this year have at times been quite frustrating, however, as fellow MMO writer Ed Leyro pointed out the […]
