According to Jon Heyman of SI.om, the Mets have upped their offer to free agent Jason Bay to include a fifth year option. Additionally, they are also planning to contact Scott Boras to discuss his client, outfielder Matt Holliday. Moving aggressively to try to secure a power-hitting left fielder, the Mets tweaked their offer to Jason Bay to give him a five-year alternative and are getting back into the ballgame for Matt Holliday, as well, SI.com has learned. I [...]
As Omar and the Mets continue to wait out what they call a slow moving market, other MLB teams are quickly scooping up some of the key free agents and addressing their needs. Yesterday, the Red Sox signed John Lackey, while the Phillies added Roy Halladay in a 3 team deal that sent Cliff Lee to the Mariners. The Red Sox also signed outfielder Mike Cameron to a 2 year deal worth $15.5 million and announced he would [...]
Yesterday the winter meetings officially began in Indianapolis and as usual some trades were apparently made and then it turned out that there was no trade. In some cases the two teams involved in the trade had not even spoken to each other. This is the joys of covering the winter meetings. In the case of the Mets a Philadelphia paper reported that the Mets traded Luis Castillo as part of 3 team trade that had [...]
I wrote on this site a month or two ago that I had a bad feeling that Omar Minaya would not come away with any prize free agents or make any significant trades to improve the Mets heading into 2010. I am closer to realizing that after reading this article on Mets.com about Minaya moving at his own pace during the winter meetings next week. Sure, the free agent pool is sort of thin this [...]
Via MLBTR, I came across this article on Fox Sports by Jon Paul Morosi who surmises that free agent outfielder Matt Holliday is on his way back to the American League. He specifically cites the New York Yankees, Los Angeles Angels and Boston Red Sox as the three finalists for Holliday’s services. Only a handful of teams have the resources and desire to sign Matt Holliday. In that sense, the market for the left fielder’s [...]
Is your head spinning yet? We live in the age of the 24 hour news cycle thanks to the internet, but somehow when it comes to the hot stove season, it’s more like a 24 minute news cycle. Case in point, the Matt Holliday rumors. Everyone who has an inkling, a feeling or a thought on the Holliday situation keeps adding to the suffocating cycle and viral onslaught of baseless information that contradicts itself from minute to [...]
The Mets would love to have Matt Holliday penciled into their Opening Day lineup next season, but the question is; Does Matt Holliday want to play for the Mets? According to Ken Davidoff of Newsday, he has a source who has told him that Matt Holliday’s top two choices in free agency are the Yankees and the Mets, in that order. When that Davidoff wrote that blurb about Holliday wanting to come to NY, Joe D. wrote the following, [...]
Now that the dreaded World Series is finally over, it’s time to put away that nightmare and look ahead to next season. The hot stove is already churning with plenty of rumors regarding soon to be free agents Matt Holliday and Jason Bay. The blogosphere has been buzzing with the pros and cons of each leftfielder, while Mets fans debate about which would be a better fit at CitiField. The agents for each player are already embroiled in a [...]
Last week on MetsBlog, Michael Baron reported via Newsday that soon to be free agent Matt Holliday, preferred to play for either the Yankees or Mets in that order. Holliday’s agent is none other than Scott Boras. I can assure you that Holliday’s comments had more to do with money and less to do with a burning desire to play for New York. I’m sure that he and Boras are both acutely aware that the Yankees and [...]
