Kevin D. asks… It seems that you are the only one among your writers that didn’t like the Chris Young signing. He is an all star who took less money to come to the Mets and is still young with a lot of upside. I don’t understand what you don’t like about him and even FanGraphs said it will be the best baseball signing of the entire offseason. Joe D. replies… That’s quite a mouthful […]

The Mets surprised the baseball world by making their first major league free agent signing of the offseason, inking outfielder Chris Young to a one-year, $7.25 million contract. The Mets now get a right (or left, depending on who else they acquire) fielder for Opening Day. While $7.25 million may seem to some like an overpay, especially considering Young batted a career-worst .200 this season with Oakland, this deal may actually be looked at, when […]
Updated Post 8:00 PM John Harper of the Daily News reports the following: “Heard tonight that Mets’ owners will not stretch the budget due to high cost of free agents. Sandy Alderson has $25-30 million to spend and no more. Good luck with that.” So much for that $35-40 million… I don’t mean to laugh here, but this offseason just keeps getting funnier and funnier… Original Post 12:00 PM After two weeks, the Mets, like many […]
Ike Davis, who appears fairly likely to get dealt this winter, said he has no burning desire to bolt Flushing reports Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. “I just want a chance to play,” Davis told MLB.com. “Honestly, I’ve loved my time with the Mets. I’m still a Met right now and I don’t want to get traded. But that part of the game is not up to us. You want to stay, but you […]
This has long been billed as the offseason when Sandy Alderson and the Mets would finally have the payroll flexibility to transform the team into a contender for the 2014 season. However, most of the baseball people I ask believe that’s impossible. They cite the lack of a proven core. Most of the fans I encounter don’t believe the Mets can contend next season except for a scant few. When I ask fans what the […]
Sandy Alderson spoke to beat writers today and his message was that the Mets 2014 payroll will be more than last year’s $87 million. “I don’t think our payroll is going to be below what we saw last year,” Alderson said. “And as far as where it will finally land, let’s defer that question until all precincts have reported.” Alderson also said nothing has changed with regard to his offseason strategy and that the Mets […]
The Rockies agreed to terms with veteran reliever LaTroy Hawkins on a one-year, $2.25 million deal, last night. The contract includes a $2.25MM option for 2015 with a $250K buyout and will be official once Hawkins passes a physical on Thursday. Hawkins will close games for Colorado who get themselves a steal. Sandy Alderson weighed in on the deal this afternoon and according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the issue was not closing games, it […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright“ It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. An bright, new, shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in last season’s home run department. However the […]
