Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports that the Mets and Brewers are still talking about a deal for Ike Davis, but the Brewers still won’t part with RHP Tyler Thornburg. Alderson spoke about how dependent it would be to find a willing partner to trade Davis. “Everybody is aware of what we have. We don’t have to advertise that,’’ Alderson said. “As far as marketing, other teams do their own evaluations. If somebody is not inclined […]
Adam asks… Let’s just say the Mets move Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy, because for whatever reason they seem to believe Lucas Duda can be the long term answer at first base. (That’s a complaint for a whole other time) This should clear up some cash, but what do the Mets do with that cash? Do you think the Mets would actually pursue Stephen Drew if his price comes down? I’d love to see another […]
In a quick update to this post from yesterday, a team that likes Daniel Murphy and checked in on him told ESPN New York that the Mets’ asking price was “substantial.” That led the source to speculate that the Mets ultimately may hold onto the second baseman. “The team that approached the Mets, by the way, had no interest in using Murphy as a second baseman. They would have restored him to a corner infield spot.” I feel […]
An MMO Fan Shot by Adam Choit With the Dodgers likely looking to unload an outfielder (possibly during this week’s Winter Meetings), if I were Sandy, I’d definitely look into going after Matt Kemp via trade. Hear me out… Kemp is only 29 and while he won’t come cheap, despite a down season and injuries, I’d think he’ll cost a lot less now than he would have two or three years ago. When completely healthy, Kemp […]
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. A career 162 game seasonal average of 159 K’s is not exactly Sabermetrics by the numbers. Yes, to be fair, […]
Hello everyone… I’m so glad to be back writing for one of the best New York Mets sites in the blogosphere. Its definitely been awhile! :) As the Mets head into the Winter Meetings, the team has begun to get aggressive in trading Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, and Daniel Murphy. While Sandy Alderson and company are trying to look for salary relief and a higher payroll flexibility by trading Murphy (as well as Duda and […]
When the news broke late Friday morning that the Mets had finally came to an agreement with outfielder, Curtis Granderson I admit I did the proverbial “happy dance” while driving in my car. Yes Granderson is not the “savior” that the Mets need to help this team escape from mediocrity as well as ineptitude. But his signing is a start and I do agree with Daily News columnist, Andy Martino, that his signing is the […]
It’s not even Christmas, but it’s not too early to start looking at the bullpen for 2014. The 40 man roster currently has eight relievers. There are 6 or 7 open spots come Opening Day. Sandy Alderson is said to be looking for at least one late-inning reliever. Anthony DiComo of Mets.com reported that the Mets are satisfied with their young core of Bobby Parnell, Vic Black, Jeurys Familia and Gonzalez Germen, and that Alderson does not plan to completely overhaul […]
Fan Shot By David Eckert Starting Pitcher It has been relatively well documented that the Mets are expected to be players in the starting pitching market this year. Some think that they might be interested in a guy like Bronson Arroyo. I am completely against making a move for any starting pitcher that is going to command a multiyear deal and over $5 million. As of right now, the locks in the Mets rotation are […]
