The Mets will keep and protect Noah Syndergaard and Zack Wheeler, and feel it will be tougher to deal Jon Niese or Dillon Gee now that Matt Harvey will be missing next year, writes Joel Sherman. But if they bundle some minor league pitching — perhaps headed by Rafael Montero — can they attract another quality bat? It seems that Montero is frequently the pitching prospect who most often gets mentioned as the one the […]
The Mets have competition in attempting to re-sign LaTroy Hawkins, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. The Colorado Rockies are among the teams pursuing the free-agent reliever, according to a source. Still, that does not mean that Colorado is a likely landing spot. I have a hunch that while some teams may be jumping on his bandwagon, ultimately Hawkins will re-sign with the Mets. Original Post 11/6 Kristie Ackert of the Daily News is reporting that LaTroy Hawkins, undoubtedly […]
The Minnesota Twins are very interested in signing free agent righthander Bronson Arroyo. They have already called and spoken with the veteran starter according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation, but they yet to make a formal offer for Arroyo. There appears to be mutual interest from both sides in getting something done as Arroyo has a history and good relationship with Twins special assistant Wayne Krivsky. He was the Reds general manager […]
The Mets can spend this offseason. That has been the overall message conveyed for the past several months, however will they spend and to what degree remains the begging question. The “Red Sox Model” has been mentioned a great deal, meaning the Amazin’s would avoid the top-tier free agents, instead finding the Shane Victorinos and Mike Napolis on the market and signing them to lesser deals. Staying true to the theme of this mid-level shopping […]
I don’t know about most of you, but a few of us on MMO let out a collective sigh of relief when we read the following from Andy Martino of the Daily News: The Mets don’t love Mark Trumbo and they’ve never shown any interest in Peter Bourjos. I see Trumbo as an Ike Davis with more consistent power, but a worse glove. I couldn’t imagine giving up a Jon Niese for someone like that… […]
“The Mets aren’t ready to trade most of their team just yet.” writes Dan Martin of the New York Post. That was his takeaway after listening to Mets GM Sandy Alderson respond to comments made by the team’s COO Jeff Wilpon on Tuesday. While there’s no doubt Jeff Wilpon was correct in pointing out the Mets have “definite deficiencies” on the roster heading into the offseason, Alderson said he believed Wilpon was speaking “off the […]
According to sources, the Mets have discussed at least two scenarios that would make Eric Young the everyday second baseman in 2014. Yesterday, after Mets COO Jeff Wilpon mentioned that David Wright, Zack Wheeler, Dillon Gee and Jon Niese were the only set players on the team, I wondered why Daniel Murphy was left out of that group. Today, Andy Martino of the New York Daily News, sheds some light on that, speculating that it could […]
What would it take this offseason for the Mets to contend for a Wild Card in 2014 as Sandy Alderson asserts? Xtreem – Jon Niese and Zack Wheeler need to step up and find some way to alleviate the loss of Matt Harvey as best they can. You can’t replace the best pitcher in the game, but they have to try. DrDooby – I believe that adding one impact outfielder (like Choo, Beltran, Ellsbury), a […]
At an event to support a community hit hard by Superstorm Sandy a year ago today, Mets COO Jeff Wilpon was among several representatives from the Mets who were in attendance at a Garfield, New Jersey school. While there, Jeff Wilpon fielded questions from Mets beat writers about the team’s plans for the offseason, the outlook for next season, and of course their financial state. Mike Kerwick, The Record - Jeff Wilpon said Mets are not […]
