We keep hearing the word “plan” tossed around this winter. Nobody knows what the plan is, as it seems to change from day-to-day and week-to-week. As legendary hockey coach Herb Brooks would say, this Mets off-season has looked a lot like “two monkeys trying to hump a football.” The only “plan,” as I see it, is to keep the Mets fans thinking there is a plan so that they continue to buy tickets and merchandise.

Last week, Andy Martino of New York Daily News, reported that the Mets could pursue a free agent shortstop this offseason and added that this upcoming offseason could be the the most important one for the Mets in several years. In talking with a Mets front office person, he learned that the Mets are very open to spending on a free agent shortstop this offseason. It had been my assumption that the Mets would either name Ruben Tejada the shortstop […]
The Mets could pursue a free agent shortstop this offseason, according to Andy Martino of New York Daily News. Martino, who has spent the last three days schmoozing with the Mets and covering for Kevin Burkhardt, says the upcoming Winter could be the the most important for the Mets in several years. In talking with a Mets front office person, he learned that the Mets are very open to spending on a free agent shortstop this offseason. […]
Michael G. Baron of SNY posted this info-graphic on Twitter after the game last night. Seeing his numbers jump out like that next to Justin Upton is mind boggling to say the least… Upton is owed $9.75M for 2013 by the Braves, and will earn an additional $14.25M next season and $14.5M in 2015. Meanwhile, Byrd is being paid $700K for this season by the Mets. Coming off that 50 game suspension after testing positive for performance enhancing […]
It’s become very apparent that the Mets have made little progress in fixing a glaring need in the outfield that prompted GM Sandy Alderson to famously say, “Outfield? What outfield” last November. Wile there was a halfhearted attempt made in trading for Justin Upton or signing free agent Michael Bourn, readers here will remember my warnings that neither situation was to be taken very seriously and was simply intended to provide a fan base that […]
Six weeks into a season that stretches over six months may be a tad early to make pronouncements on expected outcomes for this year’s Mets squad, but the indicators of relative strengths and weaknesses have at least given a reasonable hint of what can be looked for going forward. A sub-.500 record with a propensity for generosity by the bullpen and parsimony on the part of the offense hasn’t inspired a great deal of optimism […]
The Braves made headlines this offseason with their acquisition of B.J. Upton in November, signing him to a five year deal worth about $75 million. However, just when the offseason was winding down and it appeared the Braves were done, they surprised everyone and acquired B.J.’s brother Justin from the Diamondbacks. The tandem added a boost to the Atlanta offense that they so badly needed, and had some experts picking them to challenge the Nationals […]

Team News and Notes Atlanta Braves (12-1) The Braves continue to plow over any team in their way, as they are thoroughly dominating their opponents and remain in first place in the NL East.

Justin Upton continues to lead the club in many of the major offensive categories, […]
