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 […]
When it comes two building a championship team for next season, the names Matt Holliday and Jason Bay usually spearhead the list as essential additions the club must make. However, the Mets will need more than just a single free agent slugger to be competitive in the National League East. The free agent market, as a whole, isn’t very deep this season so Omar Minaya and the Mets will most likely look at acquiring new […]
Both Jason Bay and Matt Holiday’s season is now officially over as their teams were eliminated over the weekend, they now have a lot to consider as they are going to be free agents for the first time in both of their careers. They were successful with both their clubs this year and have been favorites over the years for their offensive numbers during their careers. These two outfielders are the best 2 left fielders […]
Jon Heyman of SI.com dishes out some Mets tidbits on his blog the Daily Scoop. If you’re not already a subscriber to Jon’s blog, you should be. Heyman is by far the best resource out there during the Hot Stove Season. Early impression: The Mets favor Matt Holliday for left field over Jason Bay, though either would help immensely. Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said they expect to spend money this winter, and really, they have […]
As we approach the final four games of the 2009 regular season, any hope of spinning a positive ending to an otherwise dreadful season is pretty much lost. Despite the writing being on the wall since mid-Summer that the Mets would not be involved in post season play for the third straight year, Mets fans clung to the hope that they would at least get a glimpse of the team’s future. However, like the stars […]
ESPN is reporting that the Oakland A’s and St. Louis Cardinals have completed a trade that sends outfielder Matt Holliday to St. Louis in exchange for third baseman Brett Wallace, outfielder Shane Peterson and right-handed pitcher Clayton Mortensen. The A’s are also including $1.5 million cash in the deal. Wallace is considered an elite propspect and ranked #20 overall by Baseball America in their recent July rankings. (Or about 100 spots ahead of F-Mart!) Holliday, 29, […]
Last night, while watching the Mets go down to the Braves 5-3, Gary Cohen repeated the score as the Mets headed into the ninth inning. Out of the blue, Keith Hernandez wondered out loud when was the last time the Mets hit a three run homer. Neither he or Gary could remember when, and nor could I. It may have occurred in June, but that wasn’t the point they were making. Back in 2006, when the Mets […]
