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 […]
Mets RHP Matt Harvey today underwent successful Tommy John surgery to repair a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, according to a statement from the team. Dr. James Andrews performed the surgery in Gulf Breeze, Fla. Harvey was diagnosed with a partial tear of the Ulnar Collateral Ligament in his right elbow in late August. He is expected to miss the entire 2014 season. Initially, Harvey wanted to attempt rest and rehab as […]
With so much work to do this offseason and many different areas that need to be addressed, it’s almost impossible to imagine that the Mets won’t make one or two significant trades this Winter to fill a couple of those needs. Of course the follow-up to that is, which of our players would be most appealing to other teams that we would be willing to trade? I threw this question to some of our staff: […]
A source told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, “Do not expect any comparable multi-year deals this offseason for players under the Mets’ control.” By comparable, it’s a reference to the 5-year deal Jon Niese signed with the Mets before the 2012 season. Rubin indicates that the best candidates for such a deal would be arbitration eligible players; Daniel Murphy, Dillon Gee and Bobby Parnell. Both Murphy and Parnell are under the team’s control through the 2015 season, while Gee […]
