The two-year plan The past two seasons, the Mets have finished 74-88. Over that time, they’ve dumped all their albatross contracts (except Bobby Bonilla…) and resolved the Bernie Madoff lawsuit, such that management finally appears capable of investing in the team. Whether they will or not remains to be seen, but Sandy Alderson has said the team has about $30 million to spend this off-season if he chooses. This post assumes they are serious, and […]
The New York Yankees are apparently targeting soon to be free agent Shin-Soo Choo, reports Jon Heyman, though outfield is not their top priority according to what multiple sources have told him. Choo was reportedly the “only” elite free agent the Mets were expected to pursue this offseason, according to what team sources said to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin. If there was any chance that the Mets could get Choo, it probably will go by the […]
NYBenzGirl asks… Is there any chance that the Mets will target and sign Shin-Soo Choo this offseason? Joe D. replies… That’s actually a two part question. I have no doubt that the Mets will target a player like Choo, if only to drum up fan interest and create a little buzz this offseason. So yes they will most likely target Choo this Winter and they will leak and source out plenty of interest to their […]
Last night, Carlos Beltran continued to cement his status as one of the greatest post season players of all time with yet another incredible performance. Having already delivered a two-run double to tie Game 1 of the NLCS at 2-2, the former Met would hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 13th inning to clinch a dramatic 3-2 win over the Dodgers for the Cardinals. Beltran also kept the game alive for the Cards […]
Welcome to the first installment of our offseason Mets Organizational Depth Charts. Each week, we’ll take a look at the top players at each position in the Mets organization. We hope to provide our readers with some insight into what the Mets currently have at the major-league level, as well as some players they can expect to hear about from the minor-leagues in the coming years. We’ll start things off with the backstops. MLB Travis […]
Phew, the protected pick is safe! That’s some great managing by Terry Collins – now the Mets won’t lose a draft choice when they make the big run on free agents and true major league talent that has always been promised for the historic winter of 2013-14. Scott Atchison, who I still maintain looks great for 57, helped assuage the fears of those fans who still have faith in what this front actually says. They […]
Updating this Fan Shot by by Long Suffering Met Fan with this breaking news… Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com is reporting that Cuban first baseman Jose Dariel Abreu has officially been declared a free agent and is now eligible to sign with any Major League club. MLB Trade Rumors adds that Abreu “promises to become one of the most sought-after right-handed bats” on the free agent market. The San Francisco Giants are considered to be the heavy […]
According to several reports, the Giants and Hunter Pence have reached a deal on a new contract to keep the would-be free agent outfielder in San Francisco. Jon Heyman reported that the deal could be worth $90 million dollars over five years – an average annual value of $18 million per season, topping Andre Ethier‘s five-year, $85 million extension from last year. This deal will likely set the bar for a free agent like Shin-Soo Choo this winter, Heyman says. […]
Validating what I’ve been saying almost all year long, a team insider told Adam Rubin of ESPN that the New York Mets are not expected to vigorously pursue any free agents with draft-pick compensation attached — whether the pick is protected or not. This nullifies any concern over the protected pick as the Mets will hold a second round pick in the same regard as a first round pick. This wipes out virtually all of the […]
