It was a little disappointing for Mets fans last week when John Harper of the New York Daily News reported that Sandy Alderson would have a spending limit this offseason somewhere in the range of $25 to $30 million. While Jeff Wilpon came out later in the week, calling the spending cap a flexible one, this figure is significantly less than the $35 to $40 million that was originally tossed around. With four to five […]
Omar Per asks MMO… Why are so many fans panicking over the shortstop position this offseason when next winter Hanley Ramirez, Jed Lowrie, J.J. Hardy, Yunel Escobar, Asdrubal Cabrera and Jimmy Rollins will all be entering free agency? Joe D. replies… Great question and the short answer is that Met fans, including myself, are clearly frustrated with the team’s performance over the last three years and are ready for some change. Losing lowers morale and creates […]
Here’s a quick update from Sandy Alderson on the potential grievance Ruben Tejada is considering to file. Sandy Alderson defended the Mets handling of Ruben Tejada and did not deny that “finances and player control was a part of many factors in his decision” but he asserted “it was the team’s right.” “It’s not the subject of a grievance yet, so I can’t hide behind the fact this is currently being disputed,” Alderson said. “But I […]
Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports tweets that the Mets had told the agents for Robinson Cano beforehand that odds on acquiring their client were slim. Sources: #Mets told Cano’s agents, before agreeing to meet, that chances of deal slim. Did not want to say no. Possible business in future. — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) November 19, 2013 Now that’s the most sensible thing I’ve read about this Jay-Z get together since I posted the original report […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright“ It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. An bright, new, shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in last season’s home run department. However the […]
This was something I actually read on a Seattle Mariners thread, but I thought it related very well with the Mets front office and many Met fans as well. The ideal acquisition for the Seattle Mariners this winter is a speedy right-handed hitting corner outfielder with a strong arm, adequate power, a keen recognition of the strike zone, a history of durability and a contract that won’t guarantee him $50 million or $60 million after […]
This afternoon in Orlando, Sandy Alderson suggested getting two starting outfielders this winter might now be an uphill battle because of all the teams searching for those types of bats. “We might bring in more than two starting outfielders. Who knows how things are going to break?” Alderson said. “I’d be surprised if that happens only because there’s so much interest in corner outfielders among many clubs.” Asked to clarify whether he meant he would […]
Wondering what the plan is for Noah Syndergaard? According to Andy Martino of the Daily News who spoke to Mets insiders, he will follow the same path as Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler before him. The process is familiar by now: Mets pitching prospect spends nearly all of spring training in big league camp, but is told he will not break camp with the team. Fans, and maybe even some teammates and coaches, beg for him […]
The Mets are at a crossroads right now, and we know what the giant elephant in the room is: Matt Harvey is out for the entirety of 2014. With that being the case, the Mets’ brass really needs to be smart this offseason. It begs the question: Do we go all-in right now or wait until next offseason to really make a big splash? Look who’s available in free agency. Do any of these names […]
