David Wright is making the rounds… After hitting WFAN with Francesa on Monday, today he was a guest of Mike Lupica on ESPN NY 98.7 FM. “I think Sandy has a plan in place and I think he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings,” Wright said. “Everybody knew that the free-agent prices were going to be high this year with the new TV deal and things like that, Wright […]
We are pleased to welcome the talents of Robert Walsh to our staff at Metsmerized Online. It is now known that sometime this month, under a cloak of secrecy demanded by such bold initiative, Sandy Alderson visited Chris Young somewhere out west, ostensibly we can conclude to pitch him on the merits of signing a free agent contract with the Mets. Nary a tweet on Twitter revealed the details of the delicate operation, nor the results the monumental meeting […]
Jhonny Peralta has signed a four-year, $52 million contract to play shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals. Stephen Drew is still out there, but is surprisingly not getting much attention. (Injury history, anyone?) Ben Zobrist could be traded for, but Tampa Bay really loves him and would more than likely ask for a king’s ransom in exchange for Zobrist. But there is one veteran middle infielder out there who isn’t getting much attention, but he […]
“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright” It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. A bright and shiny power hitter. The problem is that power hitters are in short supply in this year’s free agent market, with unlikely targets like Robinson Cano, Carlos Beltran and Mike Napoli representing the best of the best in the home run department. The Blue Jays, Rockies and Angels reportedly all had […]
The terms “discipline at the plate” and “patience at the plate” come up quite often when discussing hitters’ approaches at the plate—especially if you are a Mets fan. This notion that the organization is teaching their hitters to be more patient is a questionable one to say the least. The two terms sound like they mean the same thing, but actually are quite different. Patience refers to working a pitcher, seeing all his pitches, and […]
David Wright, Matt Harvey, Travis d’Arnaud, Lucas Duda, Justin Turner, Dillon Gee, Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler join Mr. and Mrs. Met to wish you Safe and Happy Holiday Season from the New York Mets. Listen in as they sing you a rousing rendition of that holiday classic “Sleigh Ride” led by the Capn’. Turner cracks me up and d’Arnaud looks as if he’s serving time for batting .190 in his MLB debut. Check it out… Incidentally, we’ll be at […]
I like what Joel Sherman of the NY Post had to say this morning about the Mets, the Rays, the A’s and building from the bottom up. There have been too many late-season days when the Mets too closely resemble the Long Island Ducks. They need to fortify the whole roster, even with money tight. They are closer — in financial willingness — to Tampa Bay and Oakland than, say, Philadelphia and Detroit. And Tampa […]
Eric Young said that he is preparing to play both in the outfield and second base going into his first spring training with the Mets, reports Kristie Ackert of the Daily News. Young said that no one in the Mets organization has discussed his role at second base or the outfield for 2014. He said he was approached about the possibility of starting at second in the aftermath of David Wright’s injury in August, but […]
Eye On Baseball unveiled their 2013 NL Bronze Cleat winners and the Mets had three players get the gold – or the bronze in this case. The Bronze Cleat recognizes players who helped their team the most on the bases, not just with stolen bases, but also things like going first-to-third on a single or scoring from first on a double. FanGraphs’ Base-Running WAR also figures into the voting. Second Base Daniel Murphy, Mets: After spending the […]
