Greg Burke has signed a minor league deal with the Colorado Rockies according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New YorkThe righthanded side-armer posted a 5.68 ERA and 1.83 WHIP in 31.2 innings pitched with the Mets last season.I prayed for another team to sign him yesterday and it actually happened… :-) Original Post Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports that 17 Mets minor leaguers are now free agents and can sign with any other organization.

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 […]
Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News is reporting that the Rangers have decided to tender a one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer to Nelson Cruz, which he is expected to turn down in favor of a multi-year deal. “It’s a relatively easy decision,” Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. “We’d be happy to have him back on a one-year deal. And we’re not prohibited from continuing to talk to him while he sees what the […]
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, […]
Last week, I profiled high school pitcher Brady Aiken. We’ll keep it on the high school side of things this week but shift it to a position player (probably). This week we’ll go in-depth on shortstop Nick Gordon — son of former closer Tom and brother of Dodgers shortstop Dee. He’s ranked in the 10-20 range by most experts, placing him right in the Mets cross-hairs. Nick Gordon, Olympia H.S (FL) Position: SS/RHP Height: 6’2 Weight: […]
Most Valuable Player Award – David Wright There is little contest to oppose David Wright as team MVP. Harvey put up ridiculous numbers in his sophomore season, but Wright helped the Mets every day while Harvey only helped every 5th day. With a .307 BA, a .390 OBP and a SLG of .514, there is no question that David was the most prominent offensive force the Mets had. It is hard to judge him on […]
Last week we looked at high school catcher Alex Jackson. This week we’ll switch it over to the pitching side, looking at one of the top prep arms in the upcoming draft, Brady Aiken. Most rankings have Aiken in the 7-10 range, which means he is likely a player the Mets are paying close attention to. Brady Aiken, Cathedral Catholic H.S (CA) Position: Pitcher Height: 6’4 Weight: 210 Bats/Throws: Left/Left Aiken is a lanky, projectable kid […]
The upcoming off-season is when many Mets fans expect to see action with regard to shaping this roster for a competitive season. We’ve been through the trades that needed to be made, we’ve been through the free agents that couldn’t be signed, and we’ve been through the contracts that had to come off the books. The farm looks healthy-ish, and now it’s time to prove that the Mets (like many other teams) can maintain a […]
The latest news out of Sandy’s camp — He mentioned on WFAN that signing Johan Santana is a possibility. Although this could be nothing more than him covering his bases and making sure that all options get explored, he didn’t flat out deny anything. Santana has made his intentions clear — he plans to pitch again next year and has been working to return from the injury that knocked him out for this year. Signing […]
