I thought I needed to have my eyes examined when I came across this article by Andy Martino of the Daily News who asserts that the Mets would be wise to consider trading Zack Wheeler. Wheeler is an extremely talented pitcher, a gem that you don’t trade unless you receive a strong return. Like, say (and this is just me acting like a talk radio caller for a moment, not reporting on actual talks) David […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News is reporting that the Mets have given pitching coach Dan Warthen a two-year contract, according to front office sources. Earlier today, Sandy Alderson confirmed that all coaches the coaches were being retained, but Warthen is the only one to receive a multi-year deal. Warthen has been the Mets’ pitching coach since Jerry Manuel took over for Willie Randolph in 2008, but has worked on a series of one-year deals, […]
Kristie Ackert of the Daily News is reporting that LaTroy Hawkins, undoubtedly one of the best free agent signings of the season for the Mets, has already had discussions with the front office to return in 2014. Hawkins was already having a solid season for the Mets – serving as the team’s setup man. But it wasn’t until closer Bobby Parnell was lost to a neck injury, that the veteran righthander truly shined for the […]
LaTroy Hawkins has now tossed 11.0 straight scoreless innings and is unscored upon in 22 of his last 24 games. Hawkins’ 11 saves, including last night are the most since he also had 11 in 2009. His next save will be the 100th save of his career. Hawkins has made 69 appearances this year, second on the team behind Scott Rice who has appeared in 73 games. Amazingly, Hawkins ranks 20th all-time with 940 games pitched. He has been […]
Even though the Mets’ bullpen ranks 13th in the NL with a 4.09 ERA and 14th with a .261 BAA, there has been many positive developments as opposed to 2011-2012 when Sandy Alderson was forced to completely revamp the pen and hit the reset button. Before suffering a herniated disk in his neck that was operated on last week, Bobby Parnell was establishing himself as one of the league’s top closers, using his knuckle curve […]
John Harper of the Daily News reports that it’s no secret the Mets would love to trade for Carlos Gonzalez, and one baseball executive with insight into the Rockies’ thinking says Colorado is likely to seriously consider offers for Gonzalez and even Troy Tulowitzki this winter as it looks to rebuild. However, the Rockies would be looking for a package built around young position players, as opposed to pitching, making it unlikely the Mets would be a […]
As I speculated before the weekend, David Wright is indeed planning to return during the San Francisco Giants series beginning on Tuesday. Both Wright and Terry Collins staunchly defended their rationale in attempting to have the third baseman return from a strained right hamstring this season, as reported by Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “It’s something that I’m against, personally,” Wright said Saturday regarding shutting things down for the season. “If the organization feels that […]
According to Kevin Burkhardt, Wilmer Flores will make his debut at second base tonight when the Mets take on the Phillies. Finally…. I’m looking forward to this…. Hat tip to BBLB…. Original Post 8/26 Wilmer Flores will get a chance to play second this week, according to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News. Lost in the debut of Daisuke Matsuzaka last night, was the three-hit performance of third baseman Wilmer Flores, the player whose numbers were mostly […]
According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Frank Francisco advised Jenrry Mejia to remain in Port St. Lucie to collect his Major League disabled list money during the rehab process, rather than work his way back by playing in minor league games. The team source told Martino that Mejia opted to tune out Francisco and instead work his way back to the majors – a decision that resulted in a brilliant seven inning effort in his 2013 […]
