With all of this talk about how the Mets are falling apart and the product on the field is just not worth watching these days, I guess it’s hard to even imagine, if any Mets players will represent the team on July 16th when the All Star game is played at Citi Field. Over the history of All Star games played in New York since the Mets first season of 1962, only a handful of [...]
On Sunday, Bobby Parnell notched his sixth save of the season, recording the final three outs of the Mets’ 4-3 victory over the Cubs. With the save, Parnell now has 20 in his six-year career with the Mets. Now that may not seem like much, but it does give Parnell a special title. Tell me, my fellow Mets fans. Do you know which homegrown Met has the most saves in team history? That would be [...]
Francisco Rodriguez spoke with reporters during yesterday’s contest in Port St. Lucie between the Mets and Team Venezuela, which is gearing up to compete in the World Baseball Classic. K-Rod said he would welcome a reunion with the Mets and would be extra motivated if given a second chance to redeem himself. Rodriguez is currently a free agent, and the Mets showed minimal interest earlier in the offseason. But please, please, please Sandy Alderson: Don’t [...]
For better or worse, Michael Bourn fell off the New York Mets radar Monday when he agreed to a four-year, $48 million deal with the Cleveland Indians. Mets/MLB beat writer Anthony DiComo suggests, if history is any indication, Sandy Alderson committed an error. DiComo wrote: The 11th overall Draft pick has a bizarre history of busts relative to the picks around it. Of the 48 players in history taken 11th overall, only five have amassed [...]
Earlier today I had the pleasure of being joined by MetsBlog.com blogger, Michael Baron on my radio show “Mets Talk Live! Wright or Wrong?!? and he has a lot to say on the K-Rod trade as well as the Mets going forward in 2011 and beyond. Here is what Michael had to say on Sandy Alderson’s conference call earlier today regarding the K-Rod trade: JS: Hey Michael, I saw the news break last night on [...]
Now with the Mets having cleared one of their biggest offseason worries in the Francisco Rodriguez vesting option, does that make the Mets buyers during the trade deadline? — Although a game has yet to be played after the All-Star break, this Mets team already takes on a new appearance. The bullpen corps is comprised of the same pitchers, and two (Bobby Parnell & Pedro Beato) will look to close out games now. Jason Isringhausen [...]
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of talking with SNY’s Ted Berg on my radio show, “Mets Talk Live! Wright or Wrong?!?”, and and boy what a show it turned out to be. Here are just a few of the topics we mulled over: JS: Given the injuries to stars like David Wright, Ike Davis, Jose Reyes, and Johan Santana who’s been out all season long, the team is still a game over .500 and very much [...]
With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Mets still appear uncertain about whether they’ll be buyers or sellers. Eventually, they’ll have to make a decision, and if they wind up being sellers, they possess several risky trade targets—possibly too risky to be thought of as rental players. The first of course is Jose Reyes. Though Sandy Alderson has claimed it’s unlikely that the Mets trade Reyes, he may reconsider if the Mets fall wildly out [...]
From the latest news on K-Rod according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, apparently Sandy Alderson has put out more then a feeler for K-Rod, and the Yankees response wasn’t a rejection, but rather a “call us closer to the deadline” move. While they would be willing to pick up the salary of K-Rod, the Yankees would be expecting to get K-Rod for pennies on the dollar as a classic salary dump. While this was [...]
