Last week, the Mets made it clear that getting a starting pitcher would be a “top priority”, and that “money would not be an object” as they seek to put a “championship caliber team” on the field in 2010.

In Newsday, David Lennon posted an interesting article about the possibility of Godzilla coming ashore in Flushing next season.  I hope Omar Minaya doesn’t read that article.  We don’t need him to get inspired by it. The Mets need a power hitter who can play left field or first base.  Hideki Matsui hit 28 HR […]

I haven’t really had a lot of nice things to say about the four-year deal the Mets gave Luis Castillo just before the start of the 2008 season. It turns out that he was injured or in pain for most of the season in the first year of that contract, but this year Castillo has […]

In a move that comes as no surprise to me, the Mets may get their off season started by locking up their new wonder boy, Jeff Francoeur to a three-year deal according to a report by Marty Noble. The Mets believe Francoeur will look sharp in their 2010 uni, so much so that they are […]

Yesterday, Jon Heyman of SI.com wrote on his Twitter account, Mets might try to trade Luis Castillo this winter and take a look at Orlando Hudson. When have we heard this before? I was hoping to read a follow-up from him today before I weighed in, but haven’t come across anything as of yet. I […]

Jon Heyman is reporting that Billy Wagner has been claimed on waivers, probably by the Cubs, hopefully not the Phillies or Marlins who are also rumored to be interested. The Mets now have 3 days to either work out a trade, let him go with nothing in return, or pull him back as they did with […]
