It’s obvious that Jose Dariel Abreu, the 26 year old Cuban phenom, is at or near the top of many a team’s wish list this offseason. The frontrunners for the slugger have been reported as the Giants, Red Sox, White Sox, and Rangers. It has also been reported that the Mets have shown somewhat of an interest in Abreu, with his innate ability to hit the ball far impressing them the most. That said, it […]
Sometimes, reality can be such a damn bitch… I read Joel Sherman’s interview with Hal Steinbrenner, owner of the Yankees, in which he discusses the decision to get their payroll under $189 million. What really stood out at me was his response to whether this was a soft goal or a mandate. “It is something to shoot for, but not at the expense of having a championship-caliber team,” Steinbrenner said. “It is not. It never […]
With the 2013 Playoffs just about reaching the halfway point, it is time for the Mets front office to begin preparing their plans for the offseason and 2014. After finishing a school test early on Friday, I took the time to write down some legitimate questions about the New York Mets players, Front Office, and Free Agency.

DAVID WRIGHT, 3B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: As they always are, expectations were high for David Wright, especially after a strong 2012 season, one in which he hit .306 with 21 homers and 93 RBI. And, those were numbers compiled with little protection in the line-up, at least in the first half of the season. They were also lofty because he signed a monster eight-year, $138-million deal through 2020 and was named team captain. Whenever a player […]
JetsMets13 asks… Do you think Dave Hudgens deserves to come back next season? It seems like every player does worse when he gets his hands on them. Look at what happened to Ike Davis, Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada. They all did great in their rookie years and then got worse instead of better. Look at Travis, Lagares and Flores. They were all top players in the minors, but as soon as they settled in […]
The New York Mets’ offseason began this afternoon at Citi Field with the expected announcement of Terry Collins’ contract extended for two years plus an option. General manager Sandy Alderson there were three criteria for the extension: * That the team hustled for Collins even during the lean times. “The club played hard for Terry and I think that was evident for everyone to see,’’ Alderson said. * That he overcame a lot in terms of […]

Warning !! What you are about to see is an exercise in futility. What if Johan Santana didn’t blow out his surgically repaired shoulder again during Spring Training ? What if Shaun Marcum pitched anywhere near the numbers on the back of his baseball card ? What if Matt Harvey didn’t injure his elbow – possibly requiring Tommy John Surgery ? What if David Wright didn’t tweak his hamstring and missed seven weeks of the […]
