Earlier this afternoon, Mike Francesa of WFAN reported that the Mets have made offers to free agents Bengie Molina and Jason Bay. This has now been confirmed by David Lennon of Newsday, as well as Joel Sherman of the New York Post. According to Francesa, the Mets made the decision to target Jason Bay instead of Matt Holliday, because they believe Bay’s swing and hitting style will translate better at Citi Field based on the results of a study and […]
I wrote on this site a month or two ago that I had a bad feeling that Omar Minaya would not come away with any prize free agents or make any significant trades to improve the Mets heading into 2010. I am closer to realizing that after reading this article on Mets.com about Minaya moving at his own pace during the winter meetings next week. Sure, the free agent pool is sort of thin this […]
A recap of today’s hot stove news. According to Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com, the Cubs have traded Aaron Heilman to the Diamondbacks for prospect LHP Scott Maine and 1B Ryne White. Heilman finished 2009 with a 4.11 ERA and 1.41 WHIP in 70 relief appearances. The Cubs may have also found a suitor for outfielder Milton Bradley. Bob Nightengale reported that the Tampa Bay Rays are close to acquiring the problematic, but talented outfielder. […]
Now that the dreaded World Series is finally over, it’s time to put away that nightmare and look ahead to next season. The hot stove is already churning with plenty of rumors regarding soon to be free agents Matt Holliday and Jason Bay. The blogosphere has been buzzing with the pros and cons of each leftfielder, while Mets fans debate about which would be a better fit at CitiField. The agents for each player are already embroiled in a […]
When it comes two building a championship team for next season, the names Matt Holliday and Jason Bay usually spearhead the list as essential additions the club must make. However, the Mets will need more than just a single free agent slugger to be competitive in the National League East. The free agent market, as a whole, isn’t very deep this season so Omar Minaya and the Mets will most likely look at acquiring new […]
Both Jason Bay and Matt Holiday’s season is now officially over as their teams were eliminated over the weekend, they now have a lot to consider as they are going to be free agents for the first time in both of their careers. They were successful with both their clubs this year and have been favorites over the years for their offensive numbers during their careers. These two outfielders are the best 2 left fielders […]
As we approach the final four games of the 2009 regular season, any hope of spinning a positive ending to an otherwise dreadful season is pretty much lost. Despite the writing being on the wall since mid-Summer that the Mets would not be involved in post season play for the third straight year, Mets fans clung to the hope that they would at least get a glimpse of the team’s future. However, like the stars […]
I came across an interesting read last week by Kevin Kernan of the NY Post. Kernan begins by pondering what the Mets will do in the draft now that they will have a top first round pick. He even wonders if there’s any chance that super prospect Bryce Harper falls into the Mets lap because teams will be reluctant to the Scott Boras client the $25 million dollar it might take to sign him. Wouldn’t […]
