Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reported that the Mets are unlikely to pursue a first baseman from outside the organization this winter, after speaking to Sandy Alderson. “The Mets expect to have their first base answer in-house, between Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and Josh Satin. That will leave shortstop and the outfield corners as the main areas for import.” It sort of sounds like what I’ve been saying all along regarding first base and that ultimately […]
Manager Terry Collins will return to manage the Mets next season, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post. Even with the Mets’s September record at 2-8, he will not be held responsible for wins and losses on a team that is lacking major league talent and will have it’s fifth losing season in a row and third under Sandy Alderson. The Mets are now 16 games under .500 and in line for 7th pick […]
You might be frustrated and disgusted by watching the Mets lose to the Nationals, but it is far better than not having any Mets to watch at all. October has to be the worst month because there’s baseball, but baseball without the Mets. At least in November there’s the start of the free-agent season, highlighted by the Winter Meetings, which is winter’s World Series. January? You can see spring training from there, and February, regardless […]
After a season in which Allan Dykstra put together a .274/.436/.503 line with a career-high 21 home runs and 82 RBIs for the Binghamton Mets, the first baseman/designated hitter is eligible to be a minor league free agent this winter. In his third year of Eastern League action since the Mets acquired him from the San Diego Padres in exchange for Eddie Kunz, he earned League MVP honors. However, the former first rounder is now 26-years-old, and it […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets have no intention of non-tendering Ike Davis based on what team insiders have told him. Rubin adds that team insiders appear satisfied that Davis will not be cost prohibitive in 2014 in a way that would force them to cut him loose. That may be true, but I would still be very surprised Ike Davis is still a Met in 2014. If ever there was […]
In major league baseball, injuries are a common, almost expected part of the game. If you are an everyday player, you generally play between 135 and 150 games a season. If you are a starting pitcher you may appear in as many as 30-35 games. A reliever can pitch theoretically at around 100 games max. When we look at all the members of the Mets that have landed on the DL for either parts of […]
The great thing about baseball is how it shifts your opinions on players from Point A to Point B and then back to Point A again. Always evolving, always transforming and always wonderfully unpredictable. It’s sort of like real life that way. I remember all the jokes, all the griping and all the complaining when Omar Minaya first signed journeyman pitcher R.A. Dickey and yet six months later he was one of our favorite players […]
For a team that after three seasons still has so many holes to fill, I find it amazing how many times I read posts about trading away the few productive players we do have for either more prospects or merely for the fact that arbitration is approaching. Yesterday, in a post on MetsBlog announcing that Daniel Murphy was named National League Player of the Week, rather than a few congratulatory words as we did, I […]
“Ike Davis made his way around the clubhouse offering farewells on Monday,” writes Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Davis will miss the rest of the season with a strained right oblique, and as you can read below, probably has played his last game as a Met… Ya’ll take care now, Ike… It’s been a real right pleasure knowin’ ya… Original Post 9/1 After leaving tonight’s game with an apparent strained right oblique, Terry Collins […]
