Updated 12/9 The Mets had a meeting today with the agent for veteran free-agent righthander Bartolo Colon according to Sweeny Murti of WFAN. But thankfully, they were scared off by his contracts demands. We are hearing that there might be a two-year deal floating from at least one team, and we think it’s the Mariners. Also, not as much to say by Sandy today compared to yesterday, but he did say it’s unlikely he’d give a multi-year offer to […]
When the news broke late Friday morning that the Mets had finally came to an agreement with outfielder, Curtis Granderson I admit I did the proverbial “happy dance” while driving in my car. Yes Granderson is not the “savior” that the Mets need to help this team escape from mediocrity as well as ineptitude. But his signing is a start and I do agree with Daily News columnist, Andy Martino, that his signing is the […]
The Mets have agreed to sign free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson to a four-year deal according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that the deal is worth $60 million dollars or a $15 million annual average. Andy Martino of the Daily News added that the deal is a straight 4-year deal, per source. No option of any sort for 5th, vesting, team or otherwise. The Mets will lose their second round pick, but […]
If you had to pick three words to best describe the Mets offseason so far – the offseason we’ve all waited three years for – those are the three words right there… Nothing is imminent. The Mets sent a contingent of scouts and executives to watch Jose Dariel Abreu. But nothing is imminent. The Mets met face to face with Jhonny Peralta. But nothing is imminent. The Mets had dinner with Jay-Z to talk about […]
In the winter of 2011, super-agent Scott Boras stated that the Mets typically shop in the “steak section” however they have been residing in the “fruits and nuts category” as of late. Finally today we have seen reports of some high-rolling as the team has “intensified discussions” on the idea of splurging on a high-profile free agent in Curtis Granderson. Does this mean they are they back in the steak section though? Not exactly. Alderson […]
DAMN YANKEES! The New York Yankees and free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury have agreed on a seven-year contract valued at $153 million dollars, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. There is also an eighth year option that could raise the total value to $169 million. Ellsbury will also cost the Yankees a first round draft pick. Ellsbury batted .298/.355/.436 with 31 doubles, 8 triples, 9 home runs and a league-leading 52 stolen bases this year with 92 runs […]
I know one player was a free agent and another is a second year arbitration eligible player, but I have to wonder… did Sandy set the market for .200 hitters that strike out a lot? With the current market “sticker shock” and the $7.25 million contract that the Mets just gave Chris Young, is Ike Davis‘ agent salivating? Tale of the Tape: Chris Young versus Ike Davis Batting average – .200 versus .205 Home Runs – […]
Mets general manager Sandy Alderson reportedly met with with free agent outfielder Curtis Granderson on Sunday, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports. Alderson has said that acquiring two corner outfielders was among his many offseason goals. Last week, the Mets signed outfielder Chris Young to a one-year, $7.25 million deal. After consecutive 40+ home run seasons in 2011-2012, Granderson batted .229/.317/.407 over 245 plate appearances in 2013, with seven home runs and 15 RBI […]
Adam Rubin now reports that the Mets are not super high on Arroyo, and a meeting may never take place, according to a team official. On Saturday, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told MMO that Arroyo would be willing to meet with the Mets, but that “no such date or plans for a meeting had ever been set with the Mets” despite earlier reports to the contrary. “There’s no truth to it.” After […]
