David Lennon of Newsday, tweets that the following players have been non-tendered by the Mets: OF Cory Sullivan OF Jeremy Reed RP Lance Broadway SP Tim Redding Nothing that wasn’t already expected there, but it’s worth noting that only Sean Green remains of the trade that sent “six players” to the Mariners and Indians in the J.J. Putz deal. Other Notable Non Tenders The Oakland A’s have non tendered outfielder Jack Cust. Cust has led the [...]
DeWayne Wise will forever be known for the spectacular catch that he made on July 23rd, 2009, which allowed pitcher, Mark Buehrle, to earn the second no-hitter of his career. Despite enjoying two of the best years in his career in Chicago, Wise declined an assignment to the club’s Triple-A affiliate recently and elected to become a free agent. As a veteran journeyman, Wise has spent time in Toronto, Atlanta and Cincinnati prior to joining [...]
Maybe someone can help me out on this, but if both Jeremy Reed and Daniel Murphy are in the lineup, shouldn’t you play Reed in leftfield and Murphy at first base? Wouldn’t it make sense to be defensively flawed at one position rather than two? Jeremy Reed is a fine defensive outfielder, and in his career he has less than five starts at first base all of them coming as a Met this month. If Dan Murphy [...]
Eddie Coleman has just announced on WFAN, that first baseman Carlos Delgado will not only miss today’s game with a chronic sore hip, but that there is a chance he could end up going on the disabled list. The Mets will not make that decision until they evaluate him after 2 or 3 more days. A recent MRI did not reveal any structural damage. Fernando Tatis will play first base for the Mets today. The [...]
The 4-0 Marlins beat the Mets 5-4 with a walk off hit in the ninth inning by Jorge Cantu off reliever Darren O’Day. You’re not going to win many games when you leave 14 runners on base, and that’s exactly what the Mets did. Maine started and other than letting up two solo homers to Hanley Ramirez and Dan Uggla, he had a good outing allowing just those two hits and a walk in five [...]
The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year. Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year. Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth should anyone not live up to expectations. In left field, Daniel Murphy and Fernando Tatis figure to split time – [...]
