Alderson Says Mets Have Money For In-Season Moves

According to Kristie Ackert of the Daily News on Twitter, Mets GM Sandy Alderson stated that the Mets will have the money to make roster moves during the season, even if they don’t trade Alejandro De Aza, which doesn’t seem likely at this point. The Mets current payroll is roughly $127 million, the highest it […]

The Time To Trade Ruben Tejada Is Now

I’m sure Jedd Gyorko could be the answer to many questions. However, I’m fairly positive he’s not the answer to the question, “Who should be your starting shortstop?” With the injury to All Star shortstop Jhonny Peralta, Gyorko is the Cardinals starting shortstop. Unless the Cardinals make a move, Gyorko will be the shortstop for the next two to […]

The article also suggest that the recent signing of Yoenis Cespedes was not necessarily a […]

Why Is Eric Campbell Still On The 40 Man Roster?

After the Yoenis Cespedes trade was made official, the Mets had to make room for him on the 40 man roster.  The decision came down to Darrell Ceciliani and Eric Campbell. Much to the chagrin of many Mets fans, Ceciliani was cut from the roster, and Campbell remained on the 40 man roster. It seems that Campbell has more lives […]

Despite Offseason Austerity, Mets Still Look Good Heading Into 2016

Mets fans hoping for a shiny new present this holiday season were left sorely disappointed. Instead we were gift wrapped Alejandra De Aza, the equivalent of getting a pair of wool socks as a present – you’ll use them occasionally and might even be glad you have them at some point, but you’re extremely underwhelmed […]

What’s Everyone Screaming About?

As promised I wanted to weigh in on the latest concocted controversy stemming from the Mets signing a left-handed outfielder to platoon with Juan Lagares on Monday- which by the way was the team’s stated goal from the moment the hot stove season started. I know this because I’ve expended well over 50,000 words on […]

Cuddyer Retirement Raises Questions and Reactions

When our own Michael Mayer discovered that Michael Cuddyer was no longer listed on the 40 man roster and then crosschecked it with MLB.com and Mets.com he surmised that the Wilpons may have just received a very Happy Hanukkah present and that the veteran outfielder had retired. Look at what is on the Mets current […]
