While all the attention has been on the Colorado Rockies’ Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki, it’s becoming very clear that the team is reluctant to move either of their two marquee players. However, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports does suggest that center fielder Dexter Fowler could be available. Heyman confirms that the Rockies have already discussed Fowler with a couple of teams and that the St. Louis Cardinals were one of the teams to inquire about […]
The Mets will keep and protect Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler, and feel it will be tougher to deal Jon Niese or Dillon Gee now that Matt Harvey will be missing next year, writes Joel Sherman. But if they bundle some minor league pitching — perhaps headed by Rafael Montero — can they attract another quality bat? It seems that Montero is frequently the pitching prospect who most often gets mentioned as the one the […]
MLB Trade Rumors posted their arbitration predictions today. Daniel Murphy stands to be the biggest winner nearly doubling his 2013 salary to $5.8 million dollars. Guaranteed Contracts David Wright – $11.0 million (2013), $20.0 million Jon Niese – $3.0 million (2013), $5.05 million Arbitration 1 Dillon Gee – $527,375 (2013) $3.4 million Ruben Tejada – $514,701 (2013), $1.0 million Justin Turner – $504,547 (2013), $800,000 Eric Young Jr. – $492,000 (2013), $1.9 million Lucas Duda […]
Over the last few seasons, Sandy Alderson has managed the team’s budget with an approach conservative enough to make the Republican party envious. Some love the strategy and some hate it but with each passing sub .500 season, his tactics are becoming increasingly questioned. Most of the fan base understood the reasoning behind trading away Carlos Beltran and R.A. Dickey regardless of whether they were in favor of the trades or not. Many fans were […]
Early Tuesday morning, Buster Olney reported that the Los Angeles Angels would be willing to trade Mark Trumbo or Peter Bourjos in exchange for pitching. Angels beat writer Alden Gonzalez also includes infielders Howie Kendrick and Erick Aybar as pieces the Halos would deal for pitching. This is a road that the Mets have been down before and an actively debated one among Mets fans. While I’m not an advocate for trading any of the team’s […]
“The Mets aren’t ready to trade most of their team just yet.” writes Dan Martin of the New York Post. That was his takeaway after listening to Mets GM Sandy Alderson respond to comments made by the team’s COO Jeff Wilpon on Tuesday. While there’s no doubt Jeff Wilpon was correct in pointing out the Mets have “definite deficiencies” on the roster heading into the offseason, Alderson said he believed Wilpon was speaking “off the […]
According to sources, the Mets have discussed at least two scenarios that would make Eric Young the everyday second baseman in 2014. Yesterday, after Mets COO Jeff Wilpon mentioned that David Wright, Zack Wheeler, Dillon Gee and Jon Niese were the only set players on the team, I wondered why Daniel Murphy was left out of that group. Today, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, sheds some light on that, speculating that it could […]
“The Red Sox hitters are too good, too patient to attack any other way than with power, and the Cardinals blueprint worded to perfection in Game 2. If St. Louis is to win this series that’s the only way it’s going to happen, as they can’t out-slug the Red Sox. The Cardinals need to manufacture enough runs, and then let the young power arms close the door.” That’s how the New York Post’s Kevin Kernan put it in a […]
Mike Puma of the New York Post spoke to Paul DePodesta who rationalized why he passed on Michael Wacha and selected Gavin Cecchini with the 12th selection of the 2012 Draft. “Our guys liked Wacha a lot in 2012 — one of the top college pitchers on the board,” Mets VP of player development and amateur scouting told The Post on Friday. But the Mets also liked their organizational pitching depth. At the time, Harvey […]
