This post was edited by Joe D. after it was originally posted, to correct some inaccurate information. Staying healthy has always been an obstacle in Jenrry Mejia’s pursuit of a starting job in the New York Mets’ rotation and it is that way again. Mejia, who underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow, should be ready for spring training but staying healthy isn’t always a given with the talented righthander. If he is […]
Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger reported that the Mets, along with a few other teams, have inquired about Johan Santana. Last week, Santana’s agent Chris Leible tweeted out that Johan is throwing from 150 feet out without any pain right now. Remember, he missed the entire 2013 season and has not pitched since August of 2012. Santana’s career stats with the Mets were pretty solid, with a 3.18 ERA over 717.0 innings pitched. He […]
Since the New York Mets need pitching, it was discouraging to read reports they are not players for Phil Hughes. Two different sources confirmed they are out on Hughes. Too bad. Of all the players in the free-agent market I thought the Mets had a chance to sign, the 27-year-old Hughes was high on my list. I felt he had the best chance to produce at a minimum cost to the Mets. Yes, he was 4-14 […]
Color me optimistic, but I do not believe the sky is falling in Queens. I heard rumors of such an event. I heard adamant insistence that such rumor was fact. So I decided to be brave, open up my door, look out into the big, bad city and take a look for myself. I looked to my left. I looked to my right. When I didn’t see casualties lying on the ground that were the […]
Andy Martino’s latest post for the Daily News does a nice job of surveying the current landscape for the Mets’ front office and the mounting pressure on them to appease a frustrated fan base. “Chris Young technically counts as doing something, but it’s not the kind of something that the Mets need, in order to solidify the offense, or placate a nervous fan base…Even among some Mets people yesterday, there was a sense of, well, […]
Mets pitching prospect Rafael Montero has joined the Legacy Agency, according to Liz Mullen of Sports Business Journal. MLBTR writes that both Baseball America and Jonathan Mayo ranked Montero as the Mets’ No. 3 prospect. Original Post 11/24 – Montero Is Better than People Think Rafael Montero is good. This isn’t breaking news. But with how quickly his name comes up in trade talks makes me wonder if people truly understand how good he really is. Let’s be honest—unless you subscribe to MilbTv, […]
“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 […]
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 watched the season premiere of Mets Hot Stove on SNY which was kind of a bore-fest of full of week old rumors that have been beaten to death already here on MMO or on Mets Twitter. There was one item of note and that was the announcement that Ron Darling had agreed to a multiyear deal to remain part of the SNY broadcast team. It was the best 23 seconds of the night… With Darling’s star […]
