I wrote a piece last October questioning whether the Mets should take a shot on Grady Sizemore. He should be fully recovered from knee injuries now, and could be signed on a minor league deal. Why not take a shot? I’m not talking about making Sizemore the main signing this off-season, I’m talking about taking a shot on a player that could be had relatively cheap, and potentially be this year’s version of Marlon Byrd. […]
With the Tragic Number at 2, the “Playoff Push” is in serious jeopardy… The Mets (64-79) lost to the Nationals (75-69) Tuesday night by a score of 6-3. Dillon Gee got the start for New York and quickly put himself in a hole, giving up a run in each of the first three innings, including a pair of home runs. The Mets started slowly against Washington’s Jordan Zimmermann, but got a run in the 4th on […]
The great thing about baseball is how it shifts your opinions on players from Point A to Point B and then back to Point A again. Always evolving, always transforming and always wonderfully unpredictable. It’s sort of like real life that way. I remember all the jokes, all the griping and all the complaining when Omar Minaya first signed journeyman pitcher R.A. Dickey and yet six months later he was one of our favorite players […]
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 […]
According to ESPN’s Jim Bowden, Major League Baseball has just approved the trade of Alfonso Soriano from the Cubs to Yankees. Bowden said that Soriano officially waived his no-trade rights and the trade is now official. The Cubs will pay roughly $17.7 million of the approximately $24.5 million left on Soriano‘s contract, and that they are considering several low-level minor league pitching prospects in return. Soriano returns to the Yankees, with whom he made his major league […]
This morning, I found myself motivated to chime in on a subject that has befuddled me all season long. What are we? You’re talking about 60-something games left, so it’s going to be an uphill battle. It’s not just catching them, it’s you’ve got to pass other teams. We were awful for a good portion of the year and we’ve been pretty damn good lately, but we dug ourselves such a hole that ‘pretty good’ […]
Chicago Cubs pitcher Matt Garza was traded Monday to the Texas Rangers for four prospects, the team confirmed. The Cubs and Rangers finally worked out the details of a trade that will send third baseman Mike Olt and right-handed pitchers C.J. Edwards and Justin Grimm, plus a player to be named, to the Cubs in exchange for the veteran right-hander. One of the players could be right-hander Neil Ramirez, or other players if the Cubs […]
Echoing what he told us last week, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said today that there is no movement on the trade front as of yet. He does not expect to fill any significant needs before the deadline. Last week, Alderson said not to expect any sweeping changes before the deadline. This shows a measured approach by someone who is walking a tightrope right now. I still believe he will not pull the rug out from under […]
