In the biggest non-story of the day, the Mets plan to decline the $25 million option on Johan Santana and will pay the $5.5 million buyout instead. There’s still a chance that they could bring back Santana this winter on a one-year deal, but don’t count on it. It’s most likely that Johan has pitched his final game with the Mets. He ends his Mets career with a 46-34 record, 3.18 ERA and 1.20 WHIP […]
In looking at the free-agent market, the New York Mets will first consider which of their own eight they might think of bringing back. It isn’t an impressive list, but there are several the Mets might think of returning. If they don’t bring back they can always find their replacements in the market. The filing period begins five days after the end of the World Series. Here’s the eight: David Aardsma: He had some decent […]
Great pitching was the lifeline of the Binghamton Mets record setting baseball season this summer. Wherever you looked; the starting rotation, long relief or closing, the B-Met pitching excelled. There were multiple B-Mets who could be considered the 2013 Most Valuable Pitcher. I’ve boiled that choice down to four promising righthanded arms – Rafael Montero, Logan Verrett, Noah Syndergaard and Jeff Walters and one lefty, Darin Gorski. Rafael Montero was brilliant throughout his brief stay in the Binghamton rotation during the early […]
With the 2013 Playoffs just about reaching the halfway point, it is time for the Mets front office to begin preparing their plans for the offseason and 2014. After finishing a school test early on Friday, I took the time to write down some legitimate questions about the New York Mets players, Front Office, and Free Agency. If you have answers for any of these questions or have developed your own, leave them in the […]
Who do you think will make it to the big league bullpen first: Jack Leathersich or Jeff Walters? Here’s what some of our guys had to say: John Bernhardt: Jeff Walters had a breakout season for the B-Mets in Binghamton. Used exclusively in the closer’s role, Walters was lights out setting single season and career save marks for Binghamton. His 38 saves also led the Eastern League and was the second highest all-time saves total […]
The Milwaukee Brewers (72-87) defeated the New York Mets (73-86) by the score of 4-2 tonight at Citi Field. For all the hell I gave you in the beginning of the year, Carlos Torres… I respect the work you’ve put in for this team in 2013. A depth signing turned into a guy who really put in some solid hours for the Mets, finishing the year with a 3.44 ERA in 86.1 innings across a […]
Daisuke Matsuzaka hurled 7.2 shutout innings as the New York Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 1-0 this afternoon at Great American Ball Park. Dice-K was superb, holding the Reds to just four hits and two walks in what was undoubtedly his best performance of the season. Dice-K was an intimidating presence on the mound and displayed improved command while owning the inside part of the plate. He struck out six. Before I get into the offense […]
The Mets wasted no time getting things going in the top of the first. Eric Young doubled to lead off the game. Young stole third and was driven in by Daniel Murphy, and before Cole Hamels had recorded an out it was 1-0. David Wright then clubbed a homer to the opposite field and it was 3-0 before the Phillies had an at bat. After a quiet second, the Amazins struck again in the third […]
Longtime Mets reliever Pedro Feliciano has been with the Amazin’s for the majority of his major-league career, only taking a two-year, $8 million hiatus from Flushing courtesy of the New York Yankees. Even so, he’s never thrown a major league pitch for any team other than the Mets. Perpetual Pedro is back in orange and blue once again this season, a theme the 37-year old Puerto Rico-native looks to continue for the remainder of his […]
