A year removed from the departure of fan favorite, Jose Reyes, the Mets find themselves with yet another set of complicated personnel decisions. With the futures of David Wright and RA Dickey on the line this winter, the Mets must weigh all options. Of the two, the most lengthy and certainly most expensive will be the retention of David Wright for what could be the remainder of his career. As a result, this particular set […]
I don’t know about other Mets fans, but there is a little voice in the back of my head that keeps telling me not to trust all the information being leaked to the media regarding the David Wright contract negotiations. When I first read it, I thought the Mets were finally making things right with the fans. This was music to the Mets fans’ ears. Now that I have had time to digest it all, I’m starting […]
I have never put a lot of stock in the whole personal catcher debate. I guess it could possibly be more of an issue when you are dealing with a knuckleballer, and you have a guy who knows how to catch it. It is a difficult pitch to catch, and since Josh Thole has been relatively successful in handling R.A. Dickey, I guess he has some value in that regard. However, if we do decide to retain him as a […]
It seems that there is a portion of the fan base that still doesn’t think that Daniel Murphy is the second baseman of the future for the New York Mets. Maybe it’s because it looks as if Murphy is an extra outfielder at times, based on where he positions himself (short right field), but I can assure you he does play second base. And yes Mets fans, he has done enough in 2012 to be […]
Unless the Wilpons hit the Powerball jackpot in the next couple of months, the Mets are not likely to sign any big name free-agents, a la Josh Hamilton, to play centerfield. Barring any off-season trades (I don’t see anything significant occurring), Kirk Nieuwenhuis will be the Mets opening day centerfielder. Beam me up, Sandy. Captain Kirk is heading back to Queens. The question is whether or not Kirk can handle the everyday duties of being […]
The four things the Mets have to do this off-season to keep the Moneyball project going strong according to the movies… 1. Hire Jonah Hill immediately to assist Sandy Alderson in the front office. 2. Trade Ike Davis. Find a guy with nerve damage in his throwing arm to play first base. Why? Because walks are better than 30+ home runs. 3. Adopt Norman Dale’s “hoosiers” philosophy when up at the plate. Norman Dale didn’t want […]
As they close the door on yet another disappointing season, and start looking towards 2013, catcher is definitely one of the areas of concern for the New York Mets. Josh Thole isn’t coming around offensively, so the Mets brought in Shoppach earlier this year to see if he would be a viable option for 2013. The Mets were gauging whether or not Shoppach would fit in with the team philosophy, and hopefully bring a little […]
With his third inning single last night, David Wright became the Mets’ all-time hits leader. He did so in more than 500 fewer games, nearly 600 fewer plate appearances, and more than 700 fewer ABs than the team’s previous leader, Ed Kranepool. Ultimately, this most recent record only scratches the surface of David Wright’s accomplishments as a New York Met. In the eight and a half years since his MLB debut, Wright has compiled 321 […]
It comes as no surprise that the New York Mets have gone on record as saying they will not be releasing Jason Bay prior to the 2013 season. With the amount of money that is invested in Jason Bay, it is better to hang on to him and see if he can turn it around, instead of getting nothing in return for the investment. In the business world, these are considered sunk costs – costs […]
