The Daniel Murphy for Brett Gardner trade talk is continuing to pick up steam despite the Mets and Yankees appearing to be strange bedfellows. Lets start with Andy Martino of the Daily News who says the Mets have already told an official from at least one other club that they are willing to move Daniel Murphy during the winter meetings. The Yankees have a glut of outfielders after adding Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury to […]
With the Met outfield taking shape, attention turns to other position player needs. Shortstop and first base were two areas the Met front office indicated needed attention during the off-season. Speculation has swirled that the Mets have lost patience with Ike Davis and are actively shopping him around. The longball results the Mets expected from Davis have never materialized as team brass anticipated. I’m not embarrassed to admit, I’m a big Ike Davis fan. In […]
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports dished on Chris Young to Robert Brender who’s down in Orlando covering the Winter Meetings. Rob asked Rosenthal about the possibility of the Mets adding another outfielder this week. “Certainly that would be a possibility. I would be interested in seeing how Chris Young plays next year. Now, he isn’t a great player. Nobody should confuse him with a great player. But, he had to accept a part-time role for […]
If you had to pick three words to best describe the Mets offseason so far – the offseason we’ve all waited three years for – those are the three words right there… Nothing is imminent. The Mets sent a contingent of scouts and executives to watch Jose Dariel Abreu. But nothing is imminent. The Mets met face to face with Jhonny Peralta. But nothing is imminent. The Mets had dinner with Jay-Z to talk about […]
The Mets announced they have non-tendered Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Justin Turner, Jeremy Hefner, and Scott Atchison. Interesting purge by the Mets on non-tender day… The 40 man roster is now at 35 players. Original Post Today is the non-tender deadline and all teams have until 11:59 tonight to decide which arbitration eligible players they will or will not offer contracts to. For the Mets, they have ten decisions to make, but the way I see it only two […]
As reported by the Star Banner, Ted Beck writes that Mets scouts and coaches recently conducted a private workout for standout lefthanded first baseman, Dash Winningham, who hit .429, with 11 home runs and 36 RBI’s last season while playing for Athletic Director/Coach Tommy Bond at Trinity Catholic. Winningham, who led Trinity to the Final Four, has signed on to play with Florida Gulf Coast University. The school is most recently recognized as the home of Dunk City, […]
Sandy Alderson is suffering from sticker shock. He’s so shocked you could slam a baseball bat against a wall he’s sitting by and he wouldn’t even flinch. He’s so shocked you have to tazer him just to get him to blink. He’s so shocked … eh, you get the idea. Lets see… $75 million for Nelson Cruz? Jhonny Peralta for $50 million? Both coming off of PED suspensions? Mind blowing. MLB’s new TV contract (a […]
It was a little disappointing for Mets fans last week when John Harper of the New York Daily News reported that Sandy Alderson would have a spending limit this offseason somewhere in the range of $25 to $30 million. While Jeff Wilpon came out later in the week, calling the spending cap a flexible one, this figure is significantly less than the $35 to $40 million that was originally tossed around. With four to five […]
David Wright, Matt Harvey, Travis d’Arnaud, Lucas Duda, Justin Turner, Dillon Gee, Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler join Mr. and Mrs. Met to wish you Safe and Happy Holiday Season from the New York Mets. Listen in as they sing you a rousing rendition of that holiday classic “Sleigh Ride” led by the Capn’. Turner cracks me up and d’Arnaud looks as if he’s serving time for batting .190 in his MLB debut. Check it out… Incidentally, we’ll be at […]
