Hey Joe D… I just checked out the ESPN Home Run Tracker and wanted to share images of Curtis Granderson’s home run spray charts for 2011 and 2012 and also share some additional four-year data for our new corner outfielder. I could’ve probably gone back further, but I thought four years were more than enough to get a good sampling of how Granderson’s home run power would play at Citi Field. Here is what I found: In […]
Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News reports that Carlos Beltran has agreed to a three-year deal with the New York Yankees. The contract is worth $45 million according to what a source told Feinsand. A rival executive told Andy Martino that if the numbers are accurate, this might be the best signing of the offseason. If you’re trying to do the math, that’s Beltran, Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury for $283 million so far for the Yankees. Beltran […]
Enrique Rojas of ESPN is reporting that Cano and Mariners agreed to a 10 year deal worth $240 million dollars. That is an ungodly amount of money. Earlier this morning, it was reported that talks had broken down after Seattle made an offer of nine years and $225 million, according to Mark Feinsand and Bill Madden of the Daily News. Reportedly, Cano’s agent Jay-Z was pushing for a deal closer to $252 million, but the M’s didn’t budge […]
In the winter of 2011, super-agent Scott Boras stated that the Mets typically shop in the “steak section” however they have been residing in the “fruits and nuts category” as of late. Finally today we have seen reports of some high-rolling as the team has “intensified discussions” on the idea of splurging on a high-profile free agent in Curtis Granderson. Does this mean they are they back in the steak section though? Not exactly. Alderson […]
A Fan Shot By Austin Smith With all the huge offseason moves thus far, most notably, Jacoby Ellsbury signing with the Yankees for 7 years and more than $150 million, should the Mets make a huge splash and sign the best free agent on the market in Robinson Cano? With the offseason in full swing before the Winter Meetings have even begun, the whole league has realized the market is flourishing, and free agents are […]
The Mets are now looking more at second-tier and third-tier free agents according to Buster Olney of ESPN. Anything can still happen, but the three offseason predictions I made for the Mets before the hot stove season started, seem to all be coming to fruition. Back in September amid all the high hopes and expectations I said: 1. The Mets would not go after any players who’ll cost more than $10 million annually. 2. The […]
Doris Day and Sandy, What do they have in common? After listening to Doris Day’s famous “Que Sera,Sera” I always think of how much of that song has to do with deferring what questions we have. Then I think of Sandy lately, and how we have been deferred from the questions we have for this team and its improvement. In Day’s song, she asks her mother several questions, to which she replies, “Whatever will be, will […]
It was a little disappointing for Mets fans last week when John Harper of the New York Daily News reported that Sandy Alderson would have a spending limit this offseason somewhere in the range of $25 to $30 million. While Jeff Wilpon came out later in the week, calling the spending cap a flexible one, this figure is significantly less than the $35 to $40 million that was originally tossed around. With four to five […]
Tiffany asks… It’s almost the end of November and the Mets offseason is two months old with two months to go. I thought this was going to be the offseason when the team would be able to add better players to the team. I’m so frustrated. What have we waited three years for? Joe D. replies… I feel your frustration. Our expectations were that this offseason was going to be the one that would allow […]
