Joel Sherman of the New York Post asks an interesting question this morning… What do the Mets do when $30 million-to-$40 million does not go as far as they once hoped? Like the Yanks, they can’t punt. They have been selling their fans on contention in 2014, and they can’t table that now because Matt Harvey will miss the season and others are flexing their financial muscles. In fact, few front offices have more pressure […]
The Mets are at a crossroads right now, and we know what the giant elephant in the room is: Matt Harvey is out for the entirety of 2014. With that being the case, the Mets’ brass really needs to be smart this offseason. It begs the question: Do we go all-in right now or wait until next offseason to really make a big splash? Look who’s available in free agency. Do any of these names […]
Matt Harvey is vacationing in Russia with his supermodel girlfriend Anne V who posted a picture of themselves on Instagram. I couldn’t help laughing a little at the picture which reminded me of the James Bond movie I mentioned in the title. In that blockbuster, Sean Connery trekked through Russia with his own supermodel girlfriend, Daniel Bianchi, as well. Looks to me like life is treating our ace pretty good… Hat tip to Julie…
The level of uncertainty surrounding Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, considered by far the best free agent pitcher this offseason, continues to confound the entire baseball industry, from the agents trying to represent him to the teams wanting to sign him to the system that will determine where he ultimately lands, writes Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. All parties agree on only one thing: Tanaka is going to be the most expensive import in baseball history. […]
What would it take this offseason for the Mets to contend for a Wild Card in 2014 as Sandy Alderson asserts? Xtreem – Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler need to step up and find some way to alleviate the loss of Matt Harvey as best they can. You can’t replace the best pitcher in the game, but they have to try. DrDooby – I believe that adding one impact outfielder (like Choo, Beltran, Ellsbury), a […]
On Monday night, righthander Matt Harvey declared himself “ahead of schedule,” six days after undergoing the surgery, according to a report this morning from the Daily News. “I am just doing range of motion stuff now, but today was the first day I could take the bandages off and I was at Hospital for Special Surgery working and everybody thinks I am ahead of schedule,” Harvey told the Daily News in his first comments since […]
“The Red Sox hitters are too good, too patient to attack any other way than with power, and the Cardinals blueprint worded to perfection in Game 2. If St. Louis is to win this series that’s the only way it’s going to happen, as they can’t out-slug the Red Sox. The Cardinals need to manufacture enough runs, and then let the young power arms close the door.” That’s how the New York Post’s Kevin Kernan put it in a […]
With news floating around that the Mets may indeed punt again in 2014, and with Matt Harvey sidelined the entire year; maybe it’s time to start looking at what the New York Mets may look like in 2015. I know it’s a depressing thought, and I’m sorry for bringing it up. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun with this. The reason why 2015 will actually make for an interesting season is because […]
The market for starting pitching is noticeably thin and old. Teams have made it a top priority to lock up their young pitching talent and as a result the only familiar names on the market under the age of 30 are Phil Hughes and John Lannan. The Mets are in the advantageous position to retain the majority of their pitching staff that finished fifth in the league in quality starts. The situation that the Mets […]
