It sounds like the Mets won’t be adding Stephen Drew to hold down the shortstop position next season. Sandy Alderson also noted that Ruben Tejada could be the Mets’ shortstop when the season starts in 2014. Mets’ Twitter broke out into a panic when this news broke at around 6:15pm on the first night of Winter Meetings. I’m a bit of a throwback. There are certain positions on the diamond that I feel should be […]
The Daniel Murphy for Brett Gardner trade talk is continuing to pick up steam despite the Mets and Yankees appearing to be strange bedfellows. Lets start with Andy Martino of the Daily News who says the Mets have already told an official from at least one other club that they are willing to move Daniel Murphy during the winter meetings. The Yankees have a glut of outfielders after adding Carlos Beltran and Jacoby Ellsbury to […]
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports dished on Chris Young to Robert Brender who’s down in Orlando covering the Winter Meetings. Rob asked Rosenthal about the possibility of the Mets adding another outfielder this week. “Certainly that would be a possibility. I would be interested in seeing how Chris Young plays next year. Now, he isn’t a great player. Nobody should confuse him with a great player. But, he had to accept a part-time role for […]
Juan Lagares told followers via Twitter that he is flying to New York to have his knee looked at by team doctors. No word yet as to how he incurred the injury or it’s severity, but Lagares says “he’s putting it all in God’s hands.” He followed up with a tweet that reads, “Everything is good my people.” The defensively talented centerfielder has been tearing it up in the DWL for Las Aguilas and is hitting .342 with a […]
If you had to pick three words to best describe the Mets offseason so far – the offseason we’ve all waited three years for – those are the three words right there… Nothing is imminent. The Mets sent a contingent of scouts and executives to watch Jose Dariel Abreu. But nothing is imminent. The Mets met face to face with Jhonny Peralta. But nothing is imminent. The Mets had dinner with Jay-Z to talk about […]
Yesterday, as reported by Steve Adams on MLBTR, the Athletics acquired Craig Gentry and Josh Lindblom from the Texas Rangers in exchange for Michael Choice and Chris Bostick. Gentry is one of the top defensive outfielders in the MLB, but struggles offensively against right-handed pitching. As Steve Adams notes, “Gentry has thrived against left-handed pitching throughout his career, compiling a solid .288/.376/.399 slash line. He’s serviceable against right-handed pitchers as well, though his OBP (.334) […]
Even after last week’s signing of Chris Young, the Met outfield is still in dire circumstances. Although they have two starters set in place in Juan Lagares and Young, neither of them are sure bets at the plate. With the Mets presumably sticking with either Lucas Duda or Ike Davis at first base for next year, significant upgrades need to be made to shortstop and a corner outfield position (unless the Mets get even more […]
Happy Thanksgiving, Mets Fans. Do we have anything to be thankful for in 2013? Is that even possible? On this day of thanks, let’s look at the positives this year and give thanks for these few special moments out of the multitude of bad ones. David Wright is currently in his prime. He put up some outstanding numbers yet again, but with another weak lineup. If this front office can put a few bats around […]
Will Juan Lagares lose time in center field to Chris Young? Check out this post by Mike Kerwick of The Record who writes that newly acquired Chris Young has a list of three expectations that he shared with reporters yesterday. He wants substantial playing time. He wants that playing time to be in center field. And he wants the Mets to make his contract (one year, $7.25 million) the first of several moves designed to […]
