The Mets have obtained outfielder Collin Cowgill from the Oakland Athletics for minor league infielder Jefry Marte.
The 26-year-old Cowgill hit .269 with two doubles, one homer and nine RBIs in 38 games and 104 at-bats with Oakland last season. He also batted .254 at Triple-A Sacramento with 17 doubles four homers and 37 RBIs in 61 games and 260 at-bats. Cargill made his big league...
Last week, Baseball America released its scouting reports on the top 10 organizational prospects on the horizon for the New York Mets and topping their list is right-handed pitching prospect Zack Wheeler. Our own Ben Yoel tweeted a copy of this month’s print issue of Baseball America with our boy Zack smack dab on the cover. Nice!
Obviously, Baseball America wrote this before...
Last month, Mets Merized Online began rolling out our Metsmerized Hall of Fame. We decided to begin with our FIVE FOUNDING MEMBERS just as they did when they got started in Cooperstown.
In the last four weeks we have selected Tom Seaver in week one, and Keith Hernandez in week two, Jerry Koosman in week three, and Dwight Gooden in week four. It is now, with great pleasure, that...
Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, fielded some questions in his mailbag piece this morning. I thought his reply to a question about Kirk Nieuwenhuis was worth sharing.
Will the Mets give Kirk Nieuwenhuis another chance at center field, or do you think they will pick up some reject from another team?
Now that Andres Torres is back with the Giants and Anthony Gose was not included in the...
NOT LOST IN TRANSLATION
During his introductory presser, new A's shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima said he signed with Oakland because team GM "Billy Beane is extremely sexy and cool."
With the last hurdle of the R.A. Dickey to Toronto deal approaching, the trade is as good as done. In this deal, the Mets will be giving up Dickey, Josh Thole and an unannounced prospect who isn’t believed to be a top-ranked player. The Mets will be receiving MLB catcher John Buck, catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud, RHP prospect Noah Syndergaard and a player to be named later...
Sandy Alderson did it again, speaking on WFAN he said he thought the Mets could compete in 2013. What he didn’t say was how he thought they’d be able to compete, much less define what he meant by compete.
He asked for patience and hoped some of the Mets’ young pitching talent would surface this coming season. Again, hope is not a strong building plan. Without saying so, he...
The New York Mets parted ways with outfielder Jason Bay earlier this offseason. He has since signed with the Seattle Mariners. While the move was a necessary one, one that cost the Mets money in which they will get no return on, the team still needs and wants to find some more outfield help. So it's no surprise that they have actively been pursuing and outfield addition...
The Mets have had a number of great catchers in their half century of existence. Jerry Grote was behind the plate for two pennant winners, nurturing a young and dominant pitching staff. John Stearns was a four-time All-Star who was at times the best player on his team. Ron Hodges was always No. 2 on the depth chart but in his 12 seasons in New York, but was the perfect complement...
The Mets got involved in contract extension negotiations with R.A. Dickey, and Dickey’s requested price seemed to be reasonable, but for whatever reason, the Mets didn’t want to pay it. Possibly because they don’t trust Dickey in the longer term, possibly because they don’t think they’re ready to win, possibly because of a blend of those reasons, or for neither of those...

As I expected, right-hander Noah Syndergaard apologized today for the anti-gay slur he made on Twitter. During a conference call with New York media, he said:
“I had a little mishap on Twitter about a month ago, and it was just brought to the attention this morning,” he said. “I’d just like to apologize for anything that was said. A buddy and I were having...
Trading your ace right after he won 20 games and the Cy Young award is never a popular move. But for the Mets, this was a great trade. Below are 5 reasons why, as well as why this was good for the Jays and Dickey himself.
1. First off, the Mets are rebuilding. They are not contending in 2013, with Dickey or without him. With him, best case scenario they win 83 games. They are in...
R.A. Dickey has agreed to a contract extension with the Blue Jays, which means that he will be traded from the Mets to the Jays, sources tell ESPN.
The extension lasts two years and is worth $25 million. Dickey will have to pass a physical in order for the trade to officially complete, but he most likely will, so that means we’ll be seeing him in a Blue Jays uniform next season...
