Sandy Alderson Doing Webcast on Monday

I thought I would share this with our readers. I think that Sandy Alderson has now got to be the most public GM (as far as speaking directly to the fans) the Mets have ever had.  It’s great that he wants to hear from the fans.  Its makes us feel that he listens, and that the […]

Newsflash: The Mets Spend Money

An article by posted on December 9, 2010 0 Comments

So riddle me this, Batman: how does the third highest payroll in the National League translate to “The Mets don’t spend any money?” Fanbases from all over are a reactionary bunch.  I think it’s more pronounced in New York City, however, where high payrolls are the norm and superstars come in to sell jerseys and […]

The Patient Approach…

An article by posted on December 9, 2010 0 Comments

Sandy Alderson, like myself has been patient this offseason. We both have picked our moments and found out where exactly to approach. After a few weeks of watching the market unfold and getting a feel for this front office, I only have one conclusion. Thank You. The days of trading for players without understanding the […]

Signings Are A Start for Sandy Alderson

Sandy Alderson came into the Winter Meetings having said that he will come out of the Winer Meetings with players.  Not big-splash, franchise players but just players to help fill the Mets roster.  He did just that today.  As my colleagues Hojo’s Mojo, and Craig Lerner reported earlier, The Mets signed catcher Ronny Paulino to a […]

As we know the Mets don’t have much money to spend this off season.  Whether it’s only five million dollars or a little more Alderson is allowed to spend there will not be any top free agent signings this year.  No Cliff Lee or Carl Crawford next season. With signing 2nd or possibly 3rd tier […]

Remember 1986? Wasn’t it great? We had Gary and Keith, Doc and Darryl, Lenny and Wally, Mookie and Frank. Frank???? Frank who? Remember the miracle of 1969? What an amazin’ year? Tom and Jerry, Cleon and Agee, Swoboda and Shamsky, Buddy and Johnny. Johnny??? Who the hell was Johnny? The Frank I’m referring to was […]

Hope Is The Plan For The New Mets In 2011

An article by posted on December 4, 2010 0 Comments

Sandy Alderson said it again, that the Mets have little payroll flexibility and aren’t expected to make a splash in the free-agent market. Again, even if the Mets cut Oliver Perez and Luis Castillo, they are still on the hook for $18 million between them. It’s not as if the money could be spent elsewhere. […]

What Will The Mets And Alderson Do With Oliver Perez?

An article by posted on November 30, 2010 0 Comments

Oliver Perez is in the last year of his 3 year, 36 million dollar contract.  When Omar Minaya signed Perez to this contract it was questioned from the start with good reason.  Unfortunately for the Mets Perez has been downright awful for the last two years.  He’s had knee injuries that have required surgery, he’s […]

The Sabermetrician In Me All Along

An article by posted on November 29, 2010 0 Comments

The purpose of Sabermetrics, in a nut shell, lay in its constant pursuit of finding the value of player’s most minute components. It’s a pure almost sanitized view of a player’s performance however like it is even admitted to in the book Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, in human behavior there was […]

Will Sandy Alderson Fall For Ollie’s Follies?

An article by posted on November 29, 2010 0 Comments

One of the things I want to see more than anything else this offseason, is at least one addition by subtraction move before the start of Spring Training. I know we’re not going to sign Cliff Lee even though we could desperately use him in our rotation. I know we’re not going to sign Carl Crawford, […]
