Featured Post: Examining Sandy’s Off-Season Signings… So Far

There was little confidence for Sandy Alderson going into the offseason. The Mets had spent only $8.5 million the last offseason, so going over that total this time around was inevitable; but just how far would they go? The first issue that was addressed was the outfield problem.  First by signing 30-year old Chris Young to a […]

I’d Be Fine With Giving Ruben Tejada Another Chance – And A Short Leash

I know I am in the the minority on this, but I would have no objection to giving Ruben Tejada one more shot. Huh? But why, oh why? Because I still think he can be a decent player. Ruben is never going to be Jose Reyes. He is never going to be a superstar. He […]

It Would Be A Mistake If Lagares Is The Odd Man Out

It’s something that is asked of me more and more in the last three weeks; will Juan Lagares lose any playing time or even his starting job in center field in light of the Mets new outfield additions? I’d always thought there was no chance that anyone would supplant Lagares in center, but I began […]

Striking Fool’s Gold With Granderson

When one gets past the excitement of the Mets signing a credible free agent who actually becomes part of this regime’s long term plan, there is this sobering reason for pause. Well, actually there’s 195 of them. As in, 195 strikeouts, which is how many times Granderson struck out in 2012, his last full season. […]

Mets Bring Back Jeremy Hefner

The Mets have re-signed starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner, reports Anthony DiComo. The deal is for a minor-league contract and will allow the Mets to retain control of Hefner at a reduced salary while he rehabs from Tommy John surgery. Hefner will likely miss a good portion if not all of 2014. Great move though, nice to […]
