So here we are Met Nation awaiting another season to begin and hoping that our team comes together to replace the pain and hurt of the three previous seasons. When Spring Training began, the Met lineup appeared set; an injury to Carlos Beltran’s knee and Jose Reyes’ thyroid condition had dampened the optimism of even casual fans. But with Reyes’ return, and the awareness that Mr. Beltran may return sooner than the naysayers and pessimistic […]
The reason why I don’t get into the off-season that much or even Spring Training is because there’s so much more to what goes on behind the scenes than we ever know. I like to just pay attention, whatever happens, happens and I get ready for Opening Day and good times. However, this Mike Jacobs things has be going crazy. The Mets are in a unique situation this year. The team that “has no minor league […]
Last week I wrote how it was time for the pitchers on this team to step up to plate for the upcoming 2010 season. This week I’ll be looking at how the infield needs to step up and make 2010 a successful season. Rod Barajas: With the signing of Rod Barajas we finally (hopefully) are done signing catchers and unless something drastic happens this spring Barajas is going to be the Mets starting catcher come […]
A few days ago, my co-writer Danny Krieger wrote a nice post pitting the recently acquired Mike Jacobs against the incumbent Daniel Murphy. I decided to do a quick 4-day poll to see what our readers thought about the Mets first base situation going into the 2010 season. Here are those results: And the winner is… Daniel Murphy is the overwhelming choice for our readers, more than doubling the support that Mike Jacobs received. As […]
“For my best friend, who loves Jake despite his low OBP, his iron glove, and his obsession with his hair. Thanks for always being there for me Pam, the way you wish Jake would be for your fantasy team.” Said by Amanda Cornoyer – The sponsor of Mike Jacobs’s Baseball Reference Page I am admittedly a fan obsessed with Daniel Murphy. You all know that I really want this kid to succeed with the New […]
Pitchers and catchers are arriving in Port St. Lucie, workouts will be starting shortly and soon exhibition games will be played in Florida. The Mets will be trying to erase the 2009 season and focus on winning in 2010. There a lot of question marks coming into the 2010 season for the Mets such as their rotation after Johan Santana, Daniel Murphy’s ability to be a productive 1st baseman both offensively and defensively, Luis Castillo […]
According to Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News, Angel Pagan and the Mets avoided arbitration and have agreed to a one year contract that will pay the center fielder $1.45 million. Pagan had originally requested $1.8 million whereas the team filed for $1.275 million. Therefore, they are paying him a little bit under the arbitrary midpoint. Last season, Angel had a fine season despite suffering an injury that sidelined him for a couple […]
I am a passenger on the Daniel Murphy bandwagon. I’ve been defending Daniel all winter and will continue doing so. Whether you agree or not, see the writing on the wall. Murphy will be the Mets starting 1st baseman this year. My prediction is that Daniel will prove his detractors wrong and have a breakout season in 2010. In January at the Mets seasons ticket holders get-together at CitiField I had the pleasure to meet […]
For the last 2 off seasons Met fans have been debating furiously with each other on whether or not the Mets should sign Orlando Hudson. I believe the pro Hudson fans last season wanted him for the simple fact that Hudson is not Luis Castillo. Whatever other skills Hudson possessed did not matter to Met fans who wanted to run Luis Castillo out of town after his horrible 2008 season which saw him become a […]
