Asdrubal Cabrera To The Mets?

MLB Trade Rumors rolled out their annual Top 50 Free Agent Predictions on Saturday and they have the Mets turning to shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera this offseason. “Cabrera is neck-and-neck with Lowrie for the top free agent shortstop position. He’s got consistent home run power and good durability. Like Lowrie, his defense has been questioned and […]

Featured Post: What To Do With Ruben Tejada

Deciding what to do with Ruben Tejada is somewhat of a difficult decision this offseason.  He definitely improved from his horrid 2013 season to become serviceable defensively, and he has always hit lefties relatively well. He’s not a starting shortstop option for the Mets going forward, but as I’ve stated in the past, he can […]

Sandy Alderson told MMO’s John Bernhardt this morning that he expects his middle-infield situation to be in flux over the next couple of years while discussing potential playing opportunity for Dilson Herrera.

Will Bartolo Colon Still Be With Mets In 2015?

One of the questions I get asked a lot is whether I think Bartolo Colon will be traded this offseason. I still feel the same way now as I did before the trade deadline and believe Colon will be in the 2015 Opening Day rotation. Back in July, I took issue with this prevailing notion […]

Is Rafael Montero The One The Mets Trade?

The Mets are highly reluctant to trade any of their young pitchers this winter, despite an urgent need to upgrade the offense, writes Andy Martino of the Daily News. However it’s not impossible to imagine Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom and to some extent Rafael Montero playing for different teams next year, he says. […]

(Updated) Mets Can Learn A Lesson From The Royals?

Winning now over winning later. Whether or not that’s the mentality of Kansas City Royals General Manager Dayton Moore or not, it clearly had a lot to do with the trade that sent top prospect Wil Myers, Patrick Leonard, Mike Montgomery and Jake Odorizzi to the Rays for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis back in 2012.

It’s been an exciting postseason so far, one packed with plenty of memorable moments including dramatic comebacks, some thrilling clutch at-bats, and no lack of phenomenal pitching performances. This is what baseball is all about. All of that said, I’m still bored out of my mind with the Mets on the sidelines for yet another […]

Could Mets Ultimately Fill An Outfield Spot Internally?

Let’s pretend for a moment that Sandy Alderson makes no effort to improve the Mets left field situation in the offseason. For arguments sake, we’ll say that he addresses the need at shortstop but a combination of high prices and long years got the better of the outfield candidates. Heading into 2015, can we expect […]
