Looking back on the season as it is, and the possible free agents that the Mets could’ve signed, I figured it may be best to look at 4 pitchers and 6 hitters that the Mets didn’t sign, and in a few days I’ll do a free agents the Mets did sign recap. Pitchers John Lackey – A very rough start to the season, but Lackey has rebounded somewhat. Lackey is 7-3 but has allowed 93 […]
On a day when a few extra coals have been added to the Hot Stove, the Phillies are close to trading for ace pitcher Roy Halladay, while Jon Heyman of SI.com is reporting that John Lackey will be signing a five-year, $85 million contract with the Boston Red Sox. In related news, the Mets have announced the signing of Jack Squat. Squat hasn’t done much in the past and might go unnoticed in the Mets […]
According to Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports, free agent pitcher John Lackey may be close to signing a deal with the Boston Red Sox. He writes, Free-agent right-hander John Lackey underwent a physical Monday with the Red Sox, an indication that he is close to an agreement with the team, according to a major-league source. Rosenthal also speculates that the deal is expected to be similar to the five-year, $82.5 million contract that the Yankees awarded […]
Steve Popper of the Bergen Record is reporting that the Mets will make two contract offers before leaving the Winter Meetings today. Based on additional reporting from Adam Rubin of the Daily News, one of those offers will most likely be to free-agent catcher Bengie Molina. Earlier reports yesterday that the Mets had already made an offer turned out to be inaccurate. Also, there is some buzz around Twitter that the second offer could be for starting pitcher John Lackey. However, […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com got a few laughs tonight when he said the following on Twitter moments ago, Mets taking a little closer look at Lackey after getting sticker shock on middle-rung starters. Might rather pay for ace. I guess when the Mets learned that the Milwaukee Brewers’ offer to starting pitcher Randy Wolf was around three years for $30 million, they freaked. I surmise that when the agent for Joel Pineiro mentioned the words “four-year deal” the […]
Yesterday the winter meetings officially began in Indianapolis and as usual some trades were apparently made and then it turned out that there was no trade. In some cases the two teams involved in the trade had not even spoken to each other. This is the joys of covering the winter meetings. In the case of the Mets a Philadelphia paper reported that the Mets traded Luis Castillo as part of 3 team trade that had […]

Let me begin by saying that you’ll get no argument from me as to who is the superior starting pitcher between Roy Halladay and John Lackey. Obviously, it’s Halladay and it’s not even close. If Doc was pitching for a high powered offense like the Yankees, he may have been a 25 game winner this season, and the one before that, and the one before that too. He is a tremendous talent who is worthy […]
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 likely scenario. As Joe D stated in a blog earlier today, John Lackey might be the wiser choice because he […]
