Last night we reported that MMO Senior Editor, John Delcos, spoke with a team executive from the Milwaukee Brewers who said that the “Mets were asking for more than they were willing to give up for Ike Davis.” “It makes more sense for us to re-sign Corey Hart and we won’t have to lose any assets to get him.” At the time, we believed that talks for Davis with the Brewers were dead. There was a […]
Hello everyone… I’m so glad to be back writing for one of the best New York Mets sites in the blogosphere. Its definitely been awhile! :) As the Mets head into the Winter Meetings, the team has begun to get aggressive in trading Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, and Daniel Murphy. While Sandy Alderson and company are trying to look for salary relief and a higher payroll flexibility by trading Murphy (as well as Duda and […]
With the Met outfield taking shape, attention turns to other position player needs. Shortstop and first base were two areas the Met front office indicated needed attention during the off-season. Speculation has swirled that the Mets have lost patience with Ike Davis and are actively shopping him around. The longball results the Mets expected from Davis have never materialized as team brass anticipated. I’m not embarrassed to admit, I’m a big Ike Davis fan. In […]
Our senior editor John Delcos should be arriving in Orlando within the hour and he will be sitting in with Sandy and his staff for each briefing, usually one in the morning and sometimes supplemented by another one if moves warrant it. I told John that if he starts tweeting pictures of the lobby, the food, or executives walking by, that I would disassociate myself from him. He said, “Are you kidding me? What about […]
A Fan Shot by Brian Goudsward The Mets have entered the 2013 offseason in a position where they need to spend. Following another lackluster season in 2013 and the fifth consecutive losing season of the franchise, the fan base’s frustration is now at an all-time high. There are a multitude of positions where upgrades are necessary like the outfield, which just took a major step forward with Curtis Granderson now aboard, the bullpen, starting pitcher, and […]
A Fan Shot by Kevin Belickis Curtis Granderson is a Met. I like the sound of that. Now that the Mets have completed their outfield for the foreseeable future (this is assuming Cesar Puello steps in next year to unseat Chris Young, and stick for a while) what comes next? Many will argue the starting rotation. I think this is the perfect year to see just what we’ve got in our younger options (Jacob deGrom, Jenrry […]
2013: .240/.294/.442, 26 HR, 80 RBI Shaun asks… I just read on ESPN Rumor Central that the A’s may be growing disappointed with Yoenis Cespedes due to the sudden drop in his batting average and that they are interested in Nelson Cruz (I hope we don’t sign him). In light of a certain Mets blogger’s recent post about a certain PED user being discussed with the Mets, I’m not taking this to seriously, but I […]
The Mets announced they have non-tendered Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Justin Turner, Jeremy Hefner, and Scott Atchison. Interesting purge by the Mets on non-tender day… The 40 man roster is now at 35 players. Original Post Today is the non-tender deadline and all teams have until 11:59 tonight to decide which arbitration eligible players they will or will not offer contracts to. For the Mets, they have ten decisions to make, but the way I see it only two […]
Last night Brian Kenny (@MrBrianKenny), formerly of ESPN and currently at MLB Network tweeted out his rules for fixing the Mets. Aside from being a fan of his, I found these rules to be interesting and agreed with most, if not all of them. So I decided I’d pass them along to you guys with some thoughts of my own. Rule #1 to rebuild Mets. No league average free agents. That includes pitchers.. — Brian […]
