I came across this on MLBTR this morning: The Mets are looking for players to buy into their offensive philosophy, and that means finding guys with discipline at the plate, writes Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. That might help to explain why the free-swinging Daniel Murphy has found himself on the pages of MLBTR over the last week or so. I headed over to Martino’s post after reading that, and immediately knew I was in store for […]
How many of you believe in karma? You know, the notion that when you do something good or bad it eventually comes right back at ya? Well, count me among the big believers in karma, and let me tell you that sometimes karma can be a real bitch… The Mets front office are jetting to Queens this morning as the 2014 GM Meetings came to a close. This year’s proceedings all began with a joke […]
A quick update from Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, who today wrote: “Don’t be surprised if the Mets also trade second baseman Daniel Murphy, one of their best hitters. Murphy is drawing interest from clubs that envision him at second, third or as a super-utility type, and while his departure would hurt the Mets short-term, he is unlikely to still be with the club by the time it contends again.” Yesterday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New […]
Joe D. wrote earlier that the Marlon Byrd signing was a “power play” by the Philadelphia Phillies, and he couldn’t be more correct. It was a power play because they knew the Mets were interested in Byrd, and this signing could have also priced out a lot of the players for the Mets. It potentially screwed the Mets from two angles. If Byrd gets $8 mil per year, what the heck are the other guys […]
This afternoon in Orlando, Sandy Alderson suggested getting two starting outfielders this winter might now be an uphill battle because of all the teams searching for those types of bats. “We might bring in more than two starting outfielders. Who knows how things are going to break?” Alderson said. “I’d be surprised if that happens only because there’s so much interest in corner outfielders among many clubs.” Asked to clarify whether he meant he would […]
David Lennon of Newsday dishes out on the state of the Mets shortstop position. The last time the Mets considered signing an elite shortstop was 2011, and it was their homegrown free agent, Jose Reyes. We use the term “considered” loosely, however, because Sandy Alderson never made an offer and Reyes jumped to Miami for a six-year, $106-million deal. That was two offseasons ago even though it still feels like it was yesterday. The problem for […]
Imagine this exciting shortstop prospect on the Mets? Okay, get your tongues back in your mouth… Did you get a chance to read John Harper’s trade proposals in the Daily News this morning? Harper proposes a string of five hypothetical trades that have the Mets using their presumed pitching surplus to solidify other areas of the team. With baseball’s GM meetings set to begin this week in Orlando, now’s the time when many of the […]

He is the best man who, when making his plans, fears and reflects on everything that can happen to him, but in the moment of action is bold. ~ Herodotus The moment of action for New York Met General Manager Sandy Alderson is now. It is time for Sandy to fly against his better nature, to throw caution to the wind, and take his own bold approach to fixing the Mets. Rules are guidelines to give us structure, […]
