Are you getting sick and tired of reading about the baseless rumors and speculation surrounding a potential Troy Tulowitzki to the Mets swap? Let’s get real, welcome to Metsmerized. Javier Baez‘s name has been getting kicked around the New York Mets’ fan base as a potential trade target for the Mets this winter, but there is virtually no chance this is going to happen. There is no way the Cubs would part ways with their […]
The New York Yankees are apparently targeting soon to be free agent Shin-Soo Choo, reports Jon Heyman, though outfield is not their top priority according to what multiple sources have told him. Choo was reportedly the “only” elite free agent the Mets were expected to pursue this offseason, according to what team sources said to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin. If there was any chance that the Mets could get Choo, it probably will go by the […]
Most Valuable Player Award – David Wright There is little contest to oppose David Wright as team MVP. Harvey put up ridiculous numbers in his sophomore season, but Wright helped the Mets every day while Harvey only helped every 5th day. With a .307 BA, a .390 OBP and a SLG of .514, there is no question that David was the most prominent offensive force the Mets had. It is hard to judge him on […]
A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. I read the names and had to laugh. The dichotomy between these two clubs in New […]
A few fringe major leaguers were removed from the Mets 40 man roster on Thursday. Not a single tear was shed onto my iPhone when I read that Mike Baxter, Robert Carson, Sean Henn, and Greg Burke were no longer Mets. No one can argue that the current roster of the New York Mets was the one taking us to the promised land. These last few lean years were the holdover years. Sandy needed time […]
Check out this post by Joe Janish wrote over at Mets Today where he examines which player has been more durable over he last three years between Jose Reyes and David Wright. The results may shock you – well at least they shocked me. For all the brouhaha regarding the supposed fragility of Reyes, guess who has played more ballgames over the past three seasons? Give up? Here’s a surprising fact: the “oft-injured” Jose Reyes […]
You remember the parting words. After the Mets infamously failed to make even a token hometown discount offer to the greatest shortstop in the team’s half century on the diamond, California import Sandy Alderson took the low road as GM. “If you are asking whether I should have sent him a box of chocolates, perhaps I should have done that,” Alderson said. “On the other hand, the box of chocolates would have cost $106 million.” […]
You don’t need me to tell you that pitching is what wins in baseball these days. However, the extent that pitching dominates the game may come as a bit of a surprise. The top-10 pitching staffs in terms of team ERA finished with an average record of 92-70 while the teams at the bottom combined to average a 74-88 record. The last time that a team won the World Series after finishing above the league […]
Lucas Duda frustrates the hell out of me. I know he’s a saber and front office darling by virtue of his .352 on-base, but he’s an awful hitter whose getting worse at the plate instead of better. Honestly, I couldn’t care less about how many walks our clean-up hitter has, I want to see him hit and drive in runs. In his last three seasons, Duda has seen his batting average decline to a career […]
