Updating this post from Thursday, Terry Collins threw his weight around on the matter of trading Marlon Byrd. In short, Collins is hoping that it doesn’t happen and is fearful of how a team struggling to score runs would survive the loss of their second most productive hitter, “If there’s moves made before the end of the season, whenever that might be, I certainly think if you’re taking one of your better bats out of […]
Stephanie was in an optimistic mood after last night’s game, believe it or not, and it wasn’t due to the post-game Nas concert… This is her first full-length piece that isn’t a Player of the Week, enjoy her collection of thoughts after the game and play nice in the comments… (Satish R.) Jeremy Hefner has never fared well against the Phillies. It’s just one of those weird baseball things, but the stats actually back it […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I didn’t get a chance to weigh in on this yesterday and just wanted to post a quick summary after his interview. We’ve heard Fred and Jeff Wilpon say things like this for almost a year now. Ever since they avoided that billion dollar lawsuit and averted bankruptcy, I said at the time that the team was on the rebound financially…. And they apparently were… They cut spending drastically, charged Alderson […]
I asked my writers who they thought was the biggest surprise for the Mets in the first half, and one of the benefits of having 25-35 active writers is that it gives me a good well-rounded sense of where the Mets fan base is on these roundtable questions I like to do. As expected there were some varied answers, and few added comments as well. Here is what we came up with. Daniel – The […]
Echoing the sentiments around MMO, Mets special assistant J.P. Ricciardi told Jim Duquette of SiriusXM Radio this morning that the team is not looking to trade outfielder Marlon Byrd, and that it would take something serious for the Mets to move him. Byrd, who is batting .263 with 15 home runs and 49 RBI this season, spoke to MMO on Wednesday and expressed his desire to remain with the Mets, but understood that baseball is […]
As the trade deadline nears, the debate grows more intense every day as to the approach the Mets should take with respect to their more marketable players. Should they approach next year with an expectation to contend and hold on to all key components of what appears to be a newly energized roster? Or should they be taking a hard look at the big picture for holes yet to be filled that may best be […]
As Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported yesterday from a team source, Bill Madden of the Daily News, confirms that the Mets may not be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. The article also quotes a major league scout who hypothesizes that the Mets could be tempted to deal Bobby Parnell to the Red Sox for outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and a top pitching prospect, but then also adds that if they want […]
As the non-waiver trade deadline draws nearer, the Mets find themselves in what’s normally a seller’s situation. They are ten games under .500 and eleven games out of the second Wild Card spot. However, with 2014 being the year everything is supposed to start coming together, what with (presumably) plenty of money to spend and the top two starters both on the major league roster, the Mets can afford to add pieces via trade that […]
Last year, the Mets whiffed on a trade that brought Ramon Ramirez and Andres Torres to New York in exchange for Angel Pagan. The deal was supposed to deal one of the Mets many outfielders, for a need which was middle relief and also bring in a veteran outfielder to fill the gap. Ramirez never lived up to the expectation of being a quality reliever, but was the trade really a whiff when you look […]
