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 […]
On January 3, 1920, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Babe Ruth along with mortgage rights on Fenway Park to the New York Yankees. On January 4, 1920, there were no newspaper articles talking about ‘The Curse of the Bambino.’ For a curse to gain traction two things must happen. First, there must be the passage of time. Secondly, a reversal of fortune based around strange and unexplainable events from that point forward must occur. […]
Here’s the latest accounting on the Mets payroll, according to the man who’s supposed to be holding all the cards. Sandy Alderson said that the Mets payroll for this past season ended up around $87-88 million. He asserts that the Mets have approximately $40 million coming off the books this winter, and they have just $25 million committed next season to David Wright and Jon Niese. Based on MLBTR estimates, the Mets will be adding […]
Andy Martino of the New York Daily News wrote a column endorsing the Mets decision to resign Terry Collins to a two-year deal in a column he wrote in today’s edition. His piece doesn’t spend much time addressing the Mets won/loss record. I assume, like many, that he doubts that with the Mets’ rosters Terry Collins has inherited over his three years as Mets skipper, few other baseball managers could have squeezed out an appreciably higher […]
The latest news out of Sandy’s camp — He mentioned on WFAN that signing Johan Santana is a possibility. Although this could be nothing more than him covering his bases and making sure that all options get explored, he didn’t flat out deny anything. Santana has made his intentions clear — he plans to pitch again next year and has been working to return from the injury that knocked him out for this year. Signing […]
Phew, the protected pick is safe! That’s some great managing by Terry Collins – now the Mets won’t lose a draft choice when they make the big run on free agents and true major league talent that has always been promised for the historic winter of 2013-14. Scott Atchison, who I still maintain looks great for 57, helped assuage the fears of those fans who still have faith in what this front actually says. They […]
I know what you’re thinking. This is a Mets website. Why do I have to read about a %$#@*^# Yankee? Yes, we are all Mets fans. And yes, we all despise the Yankees and everything they represent. But ask yourself this: Next time you drive north to Cooperstown, will you look at Tom Seaver’s plaque and then go home? Probably not. The Baseball Hall of Fame is a place where the most talented ballplayers are […]
Matt Harvey will be eligible to pitch in the Arizona Fall League should the Mets decide to pursue that option, according to this tweet by Adam Rubin. Harvey, 24, has opted to rehab his partially torn UCL, rather than undergoing Tommy John surgery. After making the announcement during his press conference, Sandy Alderson floated the possibility that the Mets’ top starter could pitch in the AFL. Harvey, who has not begun throwing yet, says he […]
The Captain is on the deck… Oh, how I thought I’d never hear those words again… Luckily, this time I don’t have to drop whatever it is I’m doing and come to immediate attention. But the Mets’ captain wants your attention… He has a message for you… He’s all in and he still loves “The Plan”. “I’m all in for this organization,” Wright said told reporters on Thursday. “Everybody has said with the money coming […]
