Mark Polishuk of the great MLB Trade Rumors does a nice assessment of MLB general managers who are entering their last year of their contracts. That includes the Mets’ Sandy Alderson, but the team does hold an option for 2015. Here is what Mark had to say about that: Sandy Alderson is facing pressure to upgrade the Mets lineup this offseason, though any hopes of contending in 2014 probably went down the drain thanks to Matt […]
When the Mets renewed Terry Collins‘ contract at the end of September once the season had concluded, it was also announced that the entire coaching staff would return as well. This announcement didn’t come as a huge shock, but it was conceivable due to the fact that the crew has been the same since the start of the 2012 campaign. There has been criticism, praise, doubt, hopefulness, hopelessness, and devotion to the staff, but it […]
On Thursday, MLB owners unanimously voted on funding that would expand instant replay in baseball. There are still plenty of details that need to be worked out before the final votes by the owners are cast, but pending player’s union approval, it looks like this is going to be a go. This is something that has been in the works since the summer. Touching on it briefly, it looks as if managers will be allowed […]
Earlier in the day yesterday among all the speculation and the harsh reality that ensued after a few cryptic quotes from Mets C.O.O, Jeff Wilpon, the Mets revealed that no they were not about to announce a trade nor did they announce the signing of a power bat. But what they did unveil were the promotional dates for next season which included post game concerts by ’80′s pop rock stalwarts Huey Lewis and the News […]
I don’t know about you, but I’m sick and tired of hearing that the Mets will have $30-40 million to spend this offseason… Especially when neither the owner or general manager have said anything close to that. For a fan base that is so desperate to hear those words, and a franchise that desperately wants to shed their “Team is Broke” image, don’t you think they’d be screaming those numbers to the masses if it […]
The Washington Nationals officially named Matt Williams as the team’s manager on Thursday, agreeing to terms on a multi-year contract with the five-time All-Star and former Arizona Diamondbacks coach. “I am thrilled to welcome Matt to our organization and am confident he is the best choice to lead the Nationals at this time,” general manager Mike Rizzo said. “He is exceptionally prepared for the task. Matt came into the interview process already possessing an extensive knowledge of […]
If you’re a true baseball fan, you’ve got to admit it; you’re going to miss Jim Leyland. He’s one of those guys you either love or hate – or maybe love to hate. But deep down inside, we all love the man because we love the sport and he’s been a part of the very fabric of baseball. It’s a little like one of your favorite stars leaving your favorite soap opera; it will never […]
Take this as you will — but Adam Rubin is reporting that Wally Backman will likely be staying with the Mets organization for 2014. According to Rubin, no teams have asked the Mets for permission to speak to Wally Backman for a managerial vacancy — so the Mets believe he will stay with them in 2014. The Mets have retained their entire staff from 2013, leaving no room for Backman to be promoted. This means […]
The Mets have not been asked by any other organization for permission to speak with Wally Backman about a managerial vacancy. So team officials still expect Backman to return as Triple-A Las Vegas manager in 2014, an insider told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The source could not yet guarantee Backman’s return, noting it still would be possible that a newly hired manager elsewhere might want Backman on the major league staff as a […]
