Enrique Rojas of ESPN is reporting that Cano and Mariners agreed to a 10 year deal worth $240 million dollars. That is an ungodly amount of money. Earlier this morning, it was reported that talks had broken down after Seattle made an offer of nine years and $225 million, according to Mark Feinsand and Bill Madden of the Daily News. Reportedly, Cano’s agent Jay-Z was pushing for a deal closer to $252 million, but the M’s didn’t budge […]
Nats Get Doug Fister From Tigers The Washington Nationals have acquired starting pitcher Doug Fister in a trade with the Detroit Tigers for infielder Steve Lombardozzi, left-hander Ian Krol and minor league lefty Robbie Ray. Fister, 29, went 14-9 with a 3.67 ERA in 33 games last year in his third season with the Tigers. Fister was tied for the American League lead in getting batters to ground into double plays. He allowed 0.6 home […]
The Mets announced they have non-tendered Omar Quintanilla, Jordany Valdespin, Justin Turner, Jeremy Hefner, and Scott Atchison. Interesting purge by the Mets on non-tender day… The 40 man roster is now at 35 players. Original Post Today is the non-tender deadline and all teams have until 11:59 tonight to decide which arbitration eligible players they will or will not offer contracts to. For the Mets, they have ten decisions to make, but the way I see it only two […]
Last week, the Mets the added left-hander Steven Matz and right-handers Jeff Walters, Jacob deGrom and Erik Goeddel to the 40 Man Roster, protecting those players from being selected in next month’s Rule 5 Draft. Since then, Goeddel has spawned more than a dozen emails to MMO as Mets fans were curious to know more about this talented pitching prospect who the Mets feared would be swiped up in a heartbeat if left unprotected. Erik […]
Wait!!! What???? Spend $62 million bucks on a starting pitcher? OK not exactly the headline remotely expected from the Mets front office, where pennies are pinched so much that they melt them down for the copper & zinc and sold off to Liberty Scrap Metal over in Jamaica. After rereading Mr. Sherman’s quote below thanks to BBLB, I started to kick around how such a methodical plan could be achieved with a fan base that […]
The Mets announced they have signed 27-year old righthander Miguel Socolovich to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal tweets, meet the newest Met: Miguel Socolovich. He’s a 27-year-old Venezuelan who put up a 6.06 ERA in 12 games for Baltimore and Chicago in 2012. Kristie Ackert of the Daily News adds that he also pitched in 11 games with Hiroshima of the Japan Central League, […]
DILLON GEE, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS Coming off surgery, the expectations were minimal because the Mets didn’t know what they were getting. The surgery was to repair an artery in his shoulder after experiencing numbness in his hand and fingers. As a “feel’’ pitcher, this type of injury was especially serious because it prevented him from getting a grip on his breaking balls and change-up, which were essential to his success. When healthy the book on […]
MATT HARVEY, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS The Mets were patient in bringing up Matt Harvey last year and it paid off. After making a splash with 10 mostly eye opening starts and leaving a strong impression with his poise and command, it was anticipated Harvey would take the next step and become a solid starter in the rotation. Harvey outpitched his experience and numbers with an ability to mix his pitches and throw breaking pitches in […]
