Beltran Looking For 3-4 Year Deal, Red Sox Favorites To Land Him

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports is reporting that right fielder Carlos Beltran is looking for a three or four year contract and is expected to reject Cardinals’ one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer. That’s probably what the cards were hoping he does as they get ready to usher in the Oscar Taveras era. Beltran, 36, is looking […]

Expect Some Wild Spending This Hot Stove Season

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports writes that all three Dodger outfielders – Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier, Carl Crawford – are available, but a rival GM told him that none were desirable. For comparison’s sake, the three Dodgers outfielders on the trade market combined for a 5.4 WAR (Crawford 2.9, Ethier 2.9, Kemp -0.4) while earning […]

New CBA Punishes Low-Revenue Teams For Trying To Compete

Last month, Keith Law had an interesting article about how the new CBA punishes low-revenue teams like Royals (or the Mets?) for trying to win under tight financial constraints. Unfortunately, it’s an ESPN Insider subscription-only article, but I will share one part of it that kind of encapsulates the full thrust of his entire argument. […]

Giants Ink Lincecum To A Two-Year, $35 Million Deal

What a difference three days makes… The Giants and right-hander Tim Lincecum agreed to a two-year, $35 million deal Tuesday, pending a physical. Lincecum, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, was days away from becoming a free agent for the first time, but the Giants were able to get a deal done before that could […]

Mets Have 11th Worst Record, Alderson Not Concerned About Protected Pick

According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Mets GM Sandy Alderson is not as concerned about the protected draft pick as much as he is about rebuilding the credibility of the franchise. “I don’t view the draft-pick situation as relevant to what we’re doing here,” Alderson said. “We’re trying to build the credibility of the […]

Alderson Says Duda and Tejada Are Not Core Players

One of the things Sandy Alderson said today during his interview with WFAN’s Mike Francesa, struck me as being kind of odd and out of place. Alderson said that he does not consider Ruben Tejada or Lucas Duda as part of the team’s core. You know what? Neither do I, but I doubt that Duda or […]

2013 MLB Draft: Will Mets Go College or High School With First Pick?

This rebuilding process seems to be dragging on too long. Do you think the Mets will go with young high school players again in June with their first round pick? I feel as though we desperately need some near MLB ready college bats and can’t afford to use our top pick on another player who […]
