Wesley, reader of MetsBlog: Can you explain on the blog why the Mets aren’t spending the $27 million they’re getting from MLB? If the payroll is the same as last year, where is that money? You should write about payroll more. Matt Cerrone, Lead Writer of Mets Blog: It’s a fair question, Wes. I don’t know the actual number, because most teams don’t know their cut yet either… 100 words about the Rockies, then this… […]
Matt Harvey was in no mood to talk to reporters yesterday, telling a group of them, “I’m good” after they approached him wanting to know more about his tweet heard ’round the world. The injured ace, who is hoping to avoid Tommy John surgery, was diagnosed with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament, but tweeted Tuesday that he’ll be back on the mound next April. I can’t say that I blame him for shunning the press after SNY […]
In discussing the Rangers acquisition of Matt Garza, which you can read about here, Matt Cerrone dropped an interesting line in his post about whether the Mets could get Stanton or not.. I’ve been told by people in baseball that, to get Stanton today, a team like the Mets would need to give them Matt Harvey. Cerrone goes on to discuss that the mindset is that the Marlins are looking for an equal value trade […]
“Not so fast, Sandy. I’m calling the shots around here.” – JP Morgan Sandy Alderson told Joel Sherman of the New York Post, that he will likely have a $90 to $100 million payroll budget next season. When you factor in Wright, Niese, raises and arbitration eligible players, the Mets have roughly $55 million in payroll commitments for the 2014 season. That should give Alderson about $45 million to spend, but still only giving him a payroll that […]
MetsBlog’s Matt Cerrone has learned that unless the Mets let Sandy Alderson spend money to improve the team this coming offseason, he will resign as general manager of the team after 2014. Sandy Alderson wants to significantly move this franchise forward in the next year or so. And, if it doesn’t happen, or if he isn’t allowed to spend a good portion of new money coming off the books because revenue is down again, he […]
In response to a question by Matt Cerrone, Buster Olney of ESPN said the Mets are going to have to start spending and even overpaying if they ever want to be in a position to compete. I think we can look at what the Seattle Mariners are going through, because I think they’re the closest comparison to what the Mets are going through right now. They have a star pitcher who can go out there every five […]
The most famous No. 1 in Mets’ history has some advice when it comes to the man who is quickly becoming the most infamous No. 1 on the Mets. “Give the kid a chance,” Mookie Wilson said Friday when discussing Jordany Valdespin. “He is a very spirited kid, very young and has a lot to learn, no question about that. But some things are being blown out of proportion. I think we need to back up and not overanalyze […]
