I don’t know about most of you, but a few of us on MMO let out a collective sigh of relief when we read the following from Andy Martino of the Daily News: The Mets don’t love Mark Trumbo and they’ve never shown any interest in Peter Bourjos. I see Trumbo as an Ike Davis with more consistent power, but a worse glove. I couldn’t imagine giving up a Jon Niese for someone like that… […]
I got an email the other day asking me why I always downplay the Mets going after players like Shin-Soo Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury or Carlos Beltran. The reader wanted to know why I’ve become such a pessimist. My response to her was simple. “I don’t trust the people in charge, hence I’m skeptical of anything they say.” In the Fall of 2010, nobody was happier to see Sandy Alderson and company take control of this […]
Logan Verrett was tabbed as having the “Best Slider” in the Mets system by Baseball America last week in their annual “Best Tools” feature. The 23-year old righty finished the 2013 season with a 4.25 ERA in 146.0 innings. He won 12 games and struck out 132 batters over that span and held opposing hitters to .249 batting average against him. Verrett’s best month was in April when he led all Mets pitchers with a 4-0 […]
After the Mets officially declined the 2014 option on Johan Santana earlier today, the veteran lefthander issued the following statement to the team and the fans… “I want to thank the Mets organization, my teammates and of course give a big thank you to the Mets fans, who have been behind me from day one and stood by me through all the good and bad.” “I am not sure what the future holds, as this is all new […]
The level of uncertainty surrounding Japanese ace Masahiro Tanaka, considered by far the best free agent pitcher this offseason, continues to confound the entire baseball industry, from the agents trying to represent him to the teams wanting to sign him to the system that will determine where he ultimately lands, writes Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports. All parties agree on only one thing: Tanaka is going to be the most expensive import in baseball history. […]
The Phillies are targeting big-time free-agent outfielders and baseball people expect them to be in the mix for Jacoby Ellsbury, Shin-Soo Choo, Nelson Cruz and possibly Curtis Granderson according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. The Phillies have a team built around superior starting pitching and veteran infielders, Heyman writes. But have a clear weakness in the outfield, where they got sub-par production this past year. One person familiar with their situation said they were even prepared to try to bring back Hunter […]
Brandon asks… I always was a big fan of Jeurys Familia and I was wondering how he was doing health wise and if he still will play a significant role with the Mets either as a starter or reliever? Thanks. Teddy replies… Jeurys Familia is doing fine (5.0 IP, 7 K, 7.20 ERA), and is pitching in the Arizona Fall League alongside some of our other prospects. He isn’t doing rather well at the moment, […]
Wednesday night marked the beginning of the World Series and the two teams which have been praised all postseason long for having outstanding systems and team building began to battle one another for the championship. While the manner in which these League Champs were built is certainly much more complicated than the way the mass media is letting on, here are the basic structures of Boston and St. Louis in a nutshell. Boston added multiple […]
The market for starting pitching is noticeably thin and old. Teams have made it a top priority to lock up their young pitching talent and as a result the only familiar names on the market under the age of 30 are Phil Hughes and John Lannan. The Mets are in the advantageous position to retain the majority of their pitching staff that finished fifth in the league in quality starts. The situation that the Mets […]
