With Sandy Alderson’s big outfield acquisition of the offseason now spoken for, the Mets may look to the scrapheap to see if they can get lucky and find another Marlon Byrd. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York writes: Outfielder Jaff Decker, who was designated for assignment by the San Diego Padres this week, could be a fit as the Mets look to reconstruct their outfield for 2014, a baseball official unaffiliated with the New York ballclub predicted to […]
According to earlier reports, the Mets had some interest in free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz. Adam Rubin of ESPN New York immediately downplayed the Mets interest writing that they were not nearly as interested in Cruz as some reports have indicated. Today, Jerry Crasnick reports that Cruz’ salary demands have now exceeded the Mets’ appetite, according to a source. This may explain signing Chris Young today for one of the two available corner outfield spots. I hope the reports are […]
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York confirms that minor league first baseman Allan Dykstra has suffered broken fibula in winter ball and is headed back to the U.S., likely for surgery. Dykstra, 26, set career highs in home runs (21) and RBIs (82) and led the Eastern League in on-base percentage (.436) and walks (101). In addition to being named the Binghamton Mets and Eastern League MVP, he was honored as the New York Mets Sterling Organizational […]
Ike Davis, who appears fairly likely to get dealt this winter, said he has no burning desire to bolt Flushing reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “I just want a chance to play,” Davis told MLB.com. “Honestly, I’ve loved my time with the Mets. I’m still a Met right now and I don’t want to get traded. But that part of the game is not up to us. You want to stay, but you […]

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN first reported the news: The deal includes an additional $1.25 million in performance bonuses if Johnson makes 26 starts, the source said. Johnson was in San Diego for a physical exam Tuesday and the contract is expected to be announced by the club Wednesday. Johnson did not receive a qualifying offer from Toronto, […]
This is a strange post. It has nothing to do with the Mets directly or indirectly, but it does go to the heart of what we talk about a lot regarding the Mets’ hitting approach. Let me start by sharing something Reds GM Walt Jocketty said regarding perennial MVP Joey Votto, who he believes walks too much. Dennis Janson of WCPO Cincinnati asked Jocketty if the new Reds manager is up to the task of […]
Since Buster Olney first reported that the Mets had interest in reliever/starter Alfredo Aceves last week, there have been a couple of updates on him. MLB Trade Rumors reported that the righthander re-hired agent Tom O’Connell to represent him recently, and that Aceves called O’Connell and apologized for firing him in the first place. Marc Carig of Newsday also added that the Mets’ interest in Aceves appears to be for only a minor-league deal, according to a […]
As you all know by now, the Mets have left their longtime radio home at 660 WFAN, and slid on down the dial to 710 WOR. Like WFAN, our new diggs at WOR is also a 50,000 watt radio station, so most of us will be able to still hear Howie Rose call the play by play. I usually don’t post in the off season, but I have a few thoughts on this deal. WFAN made […]
Former Indians and Rangers general John Hart, an analyst for “MLB Tonight” during the World Series, spoke with Justin Terranova of the New York Post about the World Series, but also asked Hart the following: Do you think the Mets will make a significant move this offseason?
