Fan Shot By David Eckert Starting Pitcher It has been relatively well documented that the Mets are expected to be players in the starting pitching market this year. Some think that they might be interested in a guy like Bronson Arroyo. I am completely against making a move for any starting pitcher that is going to command a multiyear deal and over $5 million. As of right now, the locks in the Mets rotation are […]
The two-year plan The past two seasons, the Mets have finished 74-88. Over that time, they’ve dumped all their albatross contracts (except Bobby Bonilla…) and resolved the Bernie Madoff lawsuit, such that management finally appears capable of investing in the team. Whether they will or not remains to be seen, but Sandy Alderson has said the team has about $30 million to spend this off-season if he chooses. This post assumes they are serious, and […]
The 2013 season was one where we saw some New York Mets prospects rise to the occasion, and in some cases, turn our heads—and in other cases there were prospects that completely fell off the map. Predicting which prospects pan out is not an easy task, and there are times where we fall in love with prospects, then fall out of love with them, only to fall in love with them all over again as […]
For all my fellow Mets fans, opinions have been flying fast in the blogosphere, twitterverse, and any other media I may have forgotten to mention. And all this is occurring before the World Series has even started! No Free Agents can change teams right now, no player has been tendered, yet you would think from some of us Met die-hards that the offseason is already a failure. Lets all take a deep breath, I mean, […]
It’s obvious that Jose Dariel Abreu, the 26 year old Cuban phenom, is at or near the top of many a team’s wish list this offseason. The frontrunners for the slugger have been reported as the Giants, Red Sox, White Sox, and Rangers. It has also been reported that the Mets have shown somewhat of an interest in Abreu, with his innate ability to hit the ball far impressing them the most. That said, it […]
“What Outfield?” Much has been said regarding the future of the Mets’ outfield, with many suggesting a run at CarGo, Ellsbury, Choo, or Stanton. That certainly should be a focal point for this offseason; however, with the lack of production from the infield, even more questions have emerged. Let’s take a look at the situation at each infield spot. First Base Entering the 2013 season, Ike Davis was high on everybody’s list as a potential […]
Just before the season started, Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing, was kind enough to send me out a copy of his new book, The Happiest Recap : First Base 1962-1973. It’s the first of four volumes chronicling the rich fifty year history of the New York Mets, told only the way you would expect from Greg – by recounting the team’s most memorable wins. That’s right, this is a win-by-win accounting of all those enduring […]
Jayce Boyd, First Base Bats: R Throws: R Height: 6’3″ Weight: 185 lb. Position: First Base Age: 22 ETA: 2015 2103 MMO Top Prospect Rank: NR Boyd was selected in the sixth round of the 2012 draft out of Florida State University. He played both third and first base while attending FSU, and put up very impressive college numbers. He ended his career at FSU with a .349 average, 20 home runs, and 160 RBI. He […]
What frightens me most about this coming offseason as compared to the last 3-4 is the enormity of moves that will be required to fill the vastness of areas that need correcting if we are to make a dent in the standings in 2013 to 2015. Whereas in off-seasons past where each year had 2-3 items on our list of immediate priorities, we now find perplexing questions, major problems, and deep concerns at almost every position on the team.
