With the 2013 Playoffs just about reaching the halfway point, it is time for the Mets front office to begin preparing their plans for the offseason and 2014. After finishing a school test early on Friday, I took the time to write down some legitimate questions about the New York Mets players, Front Office, and Free Agency. If you have answers for any of these questions or have developed your own, leave them in the […]
It has been officially a week since the 2013 Mets campaign has ended – even though we pretty much knew that it was over just before the All Star Break. We saw some good baseball amidst the very bad . We saw Matt Harvey dominate before being banished to the disabled list . We saw Juan Lagares look like the second coming of Tommie Agee with the glove – now if only he can hit. We saw a team […]
As one of Terry Collins’ most ardent supporters, I’m having a slight case of the “hindsight blues” today. Let me first start by saying, I think Terry Collins is a good manager for this team. You’ve heard it said before, and you’ll likely hear it again – “Baseball Managers don’t matter all that much.” It’s a statement spoken by fans who subscribe to a more sabermetric philosophy than an old school way of thinking. To […]
It’s been quite a while since I wrote my last post. During that time, like most Mets fans, I’ve resigned myself to another season of mediocrity. The ownership is cheap, the general manager doesn’t care, the manager isn’t very good and the talent just isn’t there to compete. Well the season has come to a end and already the fans are up in arms because “a team source” says that the Mets won’t spend big […]
As Justin Turner heads into his first arbitration year, and with the Mets so desperate to change perceptions about the team and get them back on the path to relevancy, I was surprised to read this report from Andy Martino of the Daily News, which suggests the Mets are all but determined to bring him back to serve in the same role as he did this season. A Mets source said that the team projects […]
Mike Kerwick of The Record writes that Sandy Alderson believes the team “is closer” to indicate whether he has enough information to determine which of his current players would or wouldn’t be part of the team when the Mets take the field in 2014. As the team owners, front office and manager Terry Collins meet in Port St. Lucie to discuss the team’s plans this offseason, the goal of these discussions is quite clear and […]
Andy Martino of the New York Daily News wrote a column endorsing the Mets decision to resign Terry Collins to a two-year deal in a column he wrote in today’s edition. His piece doesn’t spend much time addressing the Mets won/loss record. I assume, like many, that he doubts that with the Mets’ rosters Terry Collins has inherited over his three years as Mets skipper, few other baseball managers could have squeezed out an appreciably higher […]
The New York Mets’ offseason began this afternoon at Citi Field with the expected announcement of Terry Collins’ contract extended for two years plus an option. General manager Sandy Alderson there were three criteria for the extension: * That the team hustled for Collins even during the lean times. “The club played hard for Terry and I think that was evident for everyone to see,’’ Alderson said. * That he overcame a lot in terms of […]
The New York Mets today announced that the club has signed Manager Terry Collins to a two-year extension with a club option for 2016. Collins’ entire coaching staff will also return. “Terry has a great passion for the game,” said Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson. “He has helped make our younger players better. He’s a great motivator. He has had to overcome a lot this year with injuries and trades. The club played hard for […]
