In looking at the free-agent market, the New York Mets will first consider which of their own eight they might think of bringing back. It isn’t an impressive list, but there are several the Mets might think of returning. If they don’t bring back they can always find their replacements in the market. The filing period begins five days after the end of the World Series. Here’s the eight: David Aardsma: He had some decent […]
MATT HARVEY, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS The Mets were patient in bringing up Matt Harvey last year and it paid off. After making a splash with 10 mostly eye opening starts and leaving a strong impression with his poise and command, it was anticipated Harvey would take the next step and become a solid starter in the rotation. Harvey outpitched his experience and numbers with an ability to mix his pitches and throw breaking pitches in […]
Joel Sherman of the New York Post spoke with nine executives who think the Rays will trade their starting pitcher David Price this offseason. The scouts’ consensus was that the Rangers, Cubs and D-Backs were the favorites for successfully dealing for the elite 28-year old lefthander. We had an email conversation about him late last night and this morning, and discussed whether or not the Mets had what it took to land David Price and tackled the question […]
With the 2013 Playoffs just about reaching the halfway point, it is time for the Mets front office to begin preparing their plans for the offseason and 2014. After finishing a school test early on Friday, I took the time to write down some legitimate questions about the New York Mets players, Front Office, and Free Agency. If you have answers for any of these questions or have developed your own, leave them in the […]
D. Stankiewicz asks… With all this talk that adding a shortstop will be one of our main offseason goals, I hear and read a lot about Stephen Drew and Troy Tulowitzki, but never a word about bringing back the best shortstop this team ever had, Jose Reyes. Is there any chance that we could work out a deal with Toronto to bring back the best shortstop this franchise ever had? Joe D. replies… I agree […]
Matt Harvey is a major topic of discussion for the New York Mets’ front office as they began organizational meetings today in Port St. Lucie. General manager Sandy Alderson must operate under the assumption Harvey will not be ready to start next season, and as he has yet to begin throwing, the Mets must prepare for the worst-case scenario. Understandably, Harvey does not want surgery – who does? – and wants to rest and later rehab […]
There will be a twinge of sadness in the air for the New York Mets this afternoon at Citi Field, as the final day of the season means dreams and hopes long forgotten. It means the expectations of spring have died, that there is no more time, that precious little – if anything – can be salvaged, and soon the plush green of the outfield will be covered by bitter snow. Once again, the goal […]
Warning !! What you are about to see is an exercise in futility. What if Johan Santana didn’t blow out his surgically repaired shoulder again during Spring Training ? What if Shaun Marcum pitched anywhere near the numbers on the back of his baseball card ? What if Matt Harvey didn’t injure his elbow – possibly requiring Tommy John Surgery ? What if David Wright didn’t tweak his hamstring and missed seven weeks of the […]
“Offense wins fans, pitching wins championships” is the old adage – and it remains true, considering the recent success of the San Francisco Giants, a team that has won 2 World Series in 3 years built around strong, mostly young & homegrown starting pitching and a solid but unspectacular and somewhat patchwork caliber offense. Generations of Mets fans grew up with the Mets being known around Baseball as an organization built around pitching. Seaver – […]
