In 52 seasons, the Mets have only had 13 Opening Day Pitchers start just one opener. Over the years, we’ve seen Tom Seaver, Dwight Gooden, Tom Glavine, and Johan Santana each start at least 4 openers on the hill – but who were the 13 men who only started one? There are some pretty good names on the list. 1966 Jack Fisher – Jack was the Opening Day starter just one year after leading the […]
Hey Joe D… I just checked out the ESPN Home Run Tracker and wanted to share images of Curtis Granderson’s home run spray charts for 2011 and 2012 and also share some additional four-year data for our new corner outfielder. I could’ve probably gone back further, but I thought four years were more than enough to get a good sampling of how Granderson’s home run power would play at Citi Field. Here is what I found: In […]
It’s no secret that the Mets are in the market for a starting pitcher this winter. All talks to this point have surrounded their pursuit of free agent arms but their reluctance to overpay has seen them sit idly by while most of the top arms are finding their destinations. With talent on the market diminishing, the Mets need to expand their search to the trade market. The ideal situation would have been to find […]
In the 2010 MLB draft, the Mets chose RHP Jeff Walters in the 7th round with the 212th overall pick. Jeff has been pitching in the Mets system for the last four seasons and in 2013, he progressed to Double-A Binghamton of the Eastern League. On November 20, 2013 he was added to the Mets 40 man roster. Jeff began his professional career pitching for the Kingsport Mets (Rookie) of the Appalachian League, appearing in three games […]
In 2010, the Mets 30th round pick was Josh Edgin – the highest numbered round thus far to make it to the majors from that draft class. The pick right before Josh was 29th round selection, LHP Hamilton Bennett, chosen 872nd overall out of South Carolina. Hamilton has posted good numbers in his four years in the Mets organization, rising through the ranks and earning a promotion to AA Binghamton on July 13th, 2013. 2010 […]
The Kansas City Royals announced that they have signed minor league free agent Francisco Pena. Here is their press release: Catcher Francisco Pena, son of former Kansas City manager Tony Pena and brother of former Royals player Tony Pena Jr., has signed a Major League contract with the organization and was added to the 40-man roster, the club announced Sunday. He was a Minor League free agent. Pena, 24, has spent his seven-year career in […]
Dan Martin of the New York Post spoke by phone to David Wright who told him that he’s ready to do his part in talking to free agents who might be interested in coming to Queens. It’s a tough sell, but Wright seems up for the challenge. “I don’t think players are concerned about the financial situation,” Wright said by phone Saturday. “From their perspective, they want to know if we have a chance to win. We haven’t […]
Could the New York Mets’ desperate need for starting pitching lead them back to Mike Pelfrey? Seriously. Should GM Sandy Alderson decided there’s not much in the free-agent market, and with the Twins moving faster than the Mets regarding Bronson Arroyo, there are probably worse ideas than re-signing Pelfrey. Pelfrey, released by the Twins, made $4 million last year, so whatever the price it isn’t outlandish for a fifth starter. Pelfrey might also fit in the bullpen, where […]
As has already been reported, the Pirates are busy trying to re-sign outfielder Marlon Byrd and there’s also reported mutual interest in rejoining the Mets. Aside from that, MLB Trade Rumors speculates that he could be a hot commodity for any team in search of cheap upgrade at a corner outfield position. Specifically they cite the Phillies and Rockies as two such teams. The Phillies are one team that is known to be looking for right-handed pop […]
