Before you read any further I would like to issue a disclaimer of sorts. Despite all the buzz around the internet suggesting that Adrian Gonzalez and/or Miguel Cabrera, I don’t believe that either will be traded this off-season. Furthermore, I would like to go out on a limb and say that even if they were […]

Johan Santana had long been considered the best pitcher in baseball.  From 2004-2008 there wasn’t a pitcher who could touch him, posting some remarkable numbers, especially when you consider that he called the AL home up until 2008: Struck out 200 or more batters every season Had a sub-3.00 ERA in four out of five […]

John Lackey?  Roy Halladay?  Both are All-Star caliber pitchers.  Both could elevate the Mets to the level where we expect them to be.  Signing Lackey and trading for Halladay would look lovely, but we know that’s not happening.  After all, the Wilpons are our owners.  Acquiring one of the two appears to be the more […]

As we all know by now Citi Field is a pitchers park.  It has a big outfield and 16 foot fences on the outfield walls.  The Wilpons decided when building a new ball park for the Mets to play in that they wanted a pitchers park for the Mets. I’m sure if you ask David […]

Should Mets Get Into A Bidding War On Lackey?

An article by posted on October 12, 2009 0 Comments

Last week, the Mets made it clear that getting a starting pitcher would be a “top priority”, and that “money would not be an object” as they seek to put a “championship caliber team” on the field in 2010.
