According to Andy Martino of the NY Daily News, the Mets are unlikely to deal Jeff Francoeur unless they are overwhelmed. According to a person familiar with the team’s thinking, the Mets are naturally open to dealing Francoeur if a team presents an overwhelming offer, but view him as necessary insurance. The Mets do not want to be without a viable backup if Carlos Beltran, Angel Pagan or Jason Bay were injured. Francoeur told the Daily […]
Updated 7/23 2:15 PM According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports in a post to Twitter, the Kansas City Royals like Jeff Francoeur. As I posted yesterday (see below), the Mets would like to trade Francoeur, and Royals GM Dayton Moore worked in the Braves front office when Francoeur began his major league career. The Royals do have some interesting players the Mets might find useful and they could be compatible trade partners. Francoeur is eligible for arbitration next season, […]
Carlos Beltran took another major step toward his return last night as he played back-to-back nine-inning games in center field for the first time since he began his rehab assignment.

He also made four putouts in center field. “The knee is getting stronger and stronger,” Beltran said. ”Every day, I […]

Look in the dugout during a Mets game. If you see Jose Reyes smiling, laughing and dancing, you know the Mets are winning and contending. If you see him anyway else, they are probably losing. We saw it happen in 2006. Reyes led the Mets with 194 hits, batting .300. He hit 37 doubles, 19 triples and 16 home runs. Oh, and least I forget he stole 64 bases. The end result was 97 wins […]

Rightfielder Jeff Francoeur is on fire, and over his last eleven games, he is batting .451 with a .500 OBP, .559 SLG, and a 1.023 OPS. The streak coincides with the meeting he had with manager Jerry Manuel before the first game of the Phillies series. Manuel told Francoeur to tune out all the advice he had been getting and follow his own instincts, those same instincts that had him leading the Mets in nearly every offensive […]
