Wait!!! What???? Spend $62 million bucks on a starting pitcher? OK not exactly the headline remotely expected from the Mets front office, where pennies are pinched so much that they melt them down for the copper & zinc and sold off to Liberty Scrap Metal over in Jamaica. After rereading Mr. Sherman’s quote below thanks to BBLB, I started to kick around how such a methodical plan could be achieved with a fan base that […]
I was taking a look at a month old post from Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, who enlisted the services of one unbiased agent and one unbiased GM to put together their free agent predictions for this 2013-2014 offseason. I was curious to see where they had LaTroy Hawkins, Marlon Byrd and Josh Johnson pegged and surprising all three signed for far less than what many expected. Here is what they came up with: Hawkins […]
ESPN’s Keith Law released his Top 50 Free Agents for this offseason on Tuesday. With the Mets rumored to have some payroll flexibility and a willingness to spend, this would be a great opportunity to take a look at some of the interesting names who may or may not be linked to the Mets this winter. Jacoby Ellsbury Position: Centerfield Age: 30 2013: .298/.355/.426 | 9 HR | 52 SB | 5.8 WAR Law’s take: […]
As over a dozen of our writers get ready to release our MMO Top 12 Free Agent Predictions on Tuesday, I got this email from XtreemIcon which led to an interesting debate that makes for a great segue into tomorrow. Xtreem – Tim Dierkes of MLB Trade Rumors predicts that the Mets will sign Curtis Granderson, Stephen Drew, Bronson Arroyo and Roy Halladay to free-agent contracts this winter. Joe D. – Has he been having […]
Is shortstop Stephen Drew “that” guy? The financial handcuffs are finally off and Sandy Alderson apparently now has the wherewithal and flexibility to attack this offseason like he’s never had before. If there’s a player out there that can help this team and improve the Mets in any particular area, money will not prevent Sandy from pursuing that option like it has in the past. Or so that’s the message the Mets are trying to […]
Masahiro Tanaka made history last night, winning his 24th straight game this season without a loss. In the process, Tanaka led his team to their first Pacific League Championship since their establishment in 2005. What an amazing season, going 24-0 with one save… That’s sick! Joe D. Original Post 10/7 I’m big on international signings — because in some cases, you get to add a new prospect to the system for just money, while others provide […]
I thought I needed to have my eyes examined when I came across this article by Andy Martino of the Daily News who asserts that the Mets would be wise to consider trading Zack Wheeler. Wheeler is an extremely talented pitcher, a gem that you don’t trade unless you receive a strong return. Like, say (and this is just me acting like a talk radio caller for a moment, not reporting on actual talks) David […]
I just finished reading a post on MetsBlog about the Mets and the possibilities of signing soon to be free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Red Sox center fielder has an asking price of more than $100 million dollars. I’ve also seen names like Shin-Soo Choo and Robinson Cano mentioned as potential Mets targets or mostly players whom the fans would like to see the Mets hone in on. My questions […]
A couple mornings ago I received a slew of text messages in rapid succession. They were all about the tweet released by FOX’s Ken Rosenthal and Jordany Valdespin’s 50-game suspension. At first, I felt bad. My dark horse in 2013 added a new chapter entitled “PEDs” into the comedic novella he’s called a career. The one I called El Dramático for his propensity to pimp long home runs and throw tantrums when things didn’t follow […]
