That’s how Joel Sherman of the NY Post began his article this morning in which he asserts that this is the last year the Mets general manager gets to explain away a worsening major league product in the name of rebuilding. The patience extended the Alderson regime, in general, is greater than most in his position receive around here. Consider Brian Cashman’s Yankees have made the playoffs 14 of his 15 years as GM, including last […]
Bill Madden of the Daily News had an interesting quote in his article today about the Yankees and their apparent need for more power in the lineup. What caught my attention was a quote from a Marlins’ operative about the future of 22-year old All Star Giancarlo Stanton. According to Miami owner Jeffrey Loria, is “absolutely not available.” But despite Loria’s insistence, we all know everyone is available. It just depends on the price. Or as […]
According to the Star-Ledger, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie spent some time on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Radio channel yesterday discussing the Mets. Christie has been a long-time Mets fan, and will be in the stands on April 1 when the Mets take on the San Diego Padres on opening day. Christie went through a list of players he likes, which he considers the nucleus, and includes David Wright, Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy. He’s also excited […]
When talking about Jon Niese… well that’s the thing. Niese isn’t often spoken about, particularly as a respected pitcher in the NL East, an esteem he deserves after his 2012 campaign. Granted yesterday’s outing in which the young southpaw gave up four runs over 2 1/3 innings in Venezuela’s 14-10 routing of the Mets is not the Jonathon Niese that should be respected. That Niese is the Niese who hurled a one-hitter against the Padres in […]
The majority of the Mets are off today, except for those who have a “B’’ game in Jupiter later this afternoon. Pitchers Shaun Marcum, Pedro Feliciano and LaTroy Hawkins will each log some innings. The projected fifth starter, Marcum, raised concerns when he didn’t report to camp in shape. Here is a guy trying to hang onto a major league job and got a $4 million guaranteed contract from the Mets. He doesn’t come to camp ready to pitch and […]
Terry Collins told Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger that Johan Santana is on target to start his first spring training game on March 10 or 11. That would give him about five starts, assuming there are no other setbacks, before Opening Day. Frankly, I don’t care if he’s starting Opening Day. I just want him to get fully healthy as soon as possible, even if that means missing a few starts early in the […]
Ah yes, today’s stories can be summed up in 140 characters or less — if you live and work in the #Twitter universe. For New York Mets fans this means direct access to Ike Davis, Justin Turner, Zack Wheeler, Matt Harvey, Jordany Valdespin and even Mets GM Sandy Alderson … well, sometimes, Alderson posted a tweet in August, took a six-month hiatus, then posted another tweet as Spring Training camp opened. I guess access is a […]
I read a great article last night from David Lennon of Newsday, that I believe most of you will enjoy. Lennon got together with Carlos Beltran after the Mets lost to the Cardinals, and the former Mets center fielder looked back fondly at his time with the Mets and talked about his first years with the team when he helped David Wright adjust to the big leagues. But what I found most fascinating was what […]
Terry Collins told ESPN New York this afternoon that the oblique injury to top prospect Zack Wheeler is “not very bad.” Adam Rubin also reports that “the hope is to get Wheeler back on a bullpen mound in five days.” As MMO’s John Delcos pointed out this morning, Wheeler sounds like he’ll miss just one more start before he appears in another Grapefruit League game. As they should, the Mets are handling this one with […]
