Updated 12:15 PM There seems to be growing interest on Marlon Byrd according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe: Mets have received very little action on Parnell Byrd and Hawkins though Byrd interest picking up. — Nick Cafardo (@nickcafardo) July 30, 2013 But reports are rampant that the price is high and Mets would have to be blown away to trade Marlon Byrd. Original Post 9:00 AM An American League club that has spoken […]
The 1983 Mets finished their season winning 31 of their final 60 games, including a stretch from July 31st to August 23rd where they went 15-7. They also won six of their final eight. Many will point to 1984 and the way the Mets stormed out of the gate as the turning point, but for me, the writing was on the wall as early as the second half of 1983, when their run in early August signaled […]
In discussing the Rangers acquisition of Matt Garza, which you can read about here, Matt Cerrone dropped an interesting line in his post about whether the Mets could get Stanton or not.. I’ve been told by people in baseball that, to get Stanton today, a team like the Mets would need to give them Matt Harvey. Cerrone goes on to discuss that the mindset is that the Marlins are looking for an equal value trade […]
Yesterday, Allan Dykstra of the B-Mets was nice enough to grant me a phone interview, and we discussed a variety of different topics regarding him, his team, the organization and even a couple of his teammates. Dykstra, now 26, is having one of the best seasons in the entire Mets organization batting .309 with 22 doubles, 18 home runs and 66 RBI in just 269 at-bats. But what really jumps out is his other-worldly .464 on-base […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I didn’t get a chance to weigh in on this yesterday and just wanted to post a quick summary after his interview. We’ve heard Fred and Jeff Wilpon say things like this for almost a year now. Ever since they avoided that billion dollar lawsuit and averted bankruptcy, I said at the time that the team was on the rebound financially…. And they apparently were… They cut spending drastically, charged Alderson […]
Brave service men and women are still in Afghanistan protecting the American ideal. Here is a special Fan Shot that comes from one of our friends still serving in Afghanistan, Staff Sergeant Michael Cunningham, US Army. I am about to return from a nine month deployment to Afghanistan with a renewed optimism about the Mets and their second half. My first game at Shea had Mike Scott on the mound and my first autograph […]
The always enjoyable to read Ted Berg, now with USA Today, sets us straight on how fans view their top prospects and writes: Great players in the minors almost always graduate to the next level, but great players in the Majors have no place else to go. On the rare occasion a minor leaguer is in fact good enough to dominate in the bigs, he doesn’t hang around on the farm for long. Class AA […]
Maybe this news from Marlins beat writer Joe Frisaro will put to bed any further Giancarlo Stanton to the Mets rumblings, but don’t count on it. On Saturday, the Marlins dealt Ricky Nolasco to the Dodgers for three pitching prospects, and according to Frisaro the move was expected because he is eligible for free agency after the season and he wasn’t part of Miami’s future plans. It wasn’t the beginning of another fire sale and […]
OK, before I begin chatting about Matthew Bowman and Wilmer Flores, are you curious as to what the Fringe Five is? I was too when I first stumbled upon this article by Carson Cistulli of FanGraphs. The Fringe Five is a weekly series unique to FanGraphs where authors use regressed statistics, scouting reports, and their own opinions to identify fringe prospects that are the most compelling in professional baseball. To give fringe a concrete definition, those contributing to this series are considering a […]
