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 […]
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. […]
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 […]
To follow up the 10 best offensive clubs since the 80s, it’s only fitting to list the 10 lease offensive (or depending on the context – the most offensive) teams since 1980. While we are not too far removed from the Times-O-Plenty, we’ve recently been mired in Several Seasons of Drought. The 10 Worst Scoring Mets Teams since 1980 1. 1981 – 547 runs – 3.38 runs per game 2. 1983 […]
David Wright, Matt Harvey, Travis d’Arnaud, Lucas Duda, Justin Turner, Dillon Gee, Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler join Mr. and Mrs. Met to wish you Safe and Happy Holiday Season from the New York Mets. Listen in as they sing you a rousing rendition of that holiday classic “Sleigh Ride” led by the Capn’. Turner cracks me up and d’Arnaud looks as if he’s serving time for batting .190 in his MLB debut. Check it out… Incidentally, we’ll be at […]
If money was not an issue and the Mets could have any offensive free agent on the market, it would be really cool to see certain players donning a Mets uniform in 2014. This is only a dream scenario at this point, unless the Wilpons somehow came across a ton of money that they could spend with no worries. But we all know that will never happen, because as Mets fans we were never meant to […]
Brewers GM Doug Melvin acknowledged in an interview this weekend that the Mets and Brewers could fit well together as trading partners. “They’ve indicated that they have extra first basemen, and we have a need,” Melvin said. “Again, it’s all about keeping your options open. … Nothing imminent, and I don’t anticipate anything imminent. But first base is one of our needs, they have excess first basemen, so you can tie two and two together […]
Until the Mets add a legitimate piece to their roster this offseason, skepticism will surround general manager Sandy Alderson’s vow to spend writes Mike Puma of the New York Post. Scott Boras recently summed up the Mets over Alderson’s three-year tenure: “The thing with the Mets is they’re interested in everybody and interested in nobody.” Alderson is on the clock to make at least a ripple, if not a splash, this winter. Alderson cited “payroll concentration” […]
