As I said this morning, as more and more rival Gm’s see the kind of season that Hairston had in 2012, the longer the line of suitors will get. This just in…
Only thous after the Detroit Tigers entered the fray, the Atlanta Braves and the San Francisco Giants have also asked inquired about Hairston according to Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger.
Yep… As I said, Hairston is as good as gone…
Even a platoon catcher or left fielder would have looked good instead of another empty spot on the 40 man roster….
We have been bleeding talent for three off-seasons now and the team is still hemorrhaging…
By the way, almost two months down and my prediction that there wouldn’t be any “wholesale changes” is looking better and better….
Only 2 1/2 more months until Mets Spring Training Camp opens. Are ya ready?
LETS GO METS!

Sandy Alderson has singled out the team’s dire outfield situation as one of the areas that will be addressed this offseason. B

Andy Martino of the Daily News reports that the Mets want a ‘monster package’ for R.A. Dickey, which is likely a few high-end prospects, major leaguers, outfielders and catching help.
He cites a high-ranking MLB executive, that “if the Mets don’t get this level return, they’re probably not going to trade him.”
Wow, talk about too pricey… Incredible…
Honestly, I don’t...
According to multiply reports, the New York Mets announced the additions of righthanded pitchers Zack Wheeler, Hansel Robles, Gonzalez Germen and Greg Burke, lefthanded pitcher Darin Gorski and infielder Wilfredo Tovar to the 40-man roster.
The move was made to protect them from being eligible for the Rule 5 draft at the winter meetings. According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York...
I like David Wright and want the Mets to sign him to an extension.
However, the question is: For how long?
The other day I wrote the Mets should get going and sign him and R.A. Dickey. What I should have said is they should put their best offer on the table, and if nothing else, be creative. My thoughts were the longer this drags on – especially after saying they wanted to get...
In recent days, a number of Mets fans have taken to Twitter to remind me of a column I wrote about the team last February.
The column said that commissioner Bud Selig should persuade his friend Fred Wilpon to sell the Mets if the uncertainty about the team's finances lingered into this winter.
"One more season of this," I wrote, "and no more."
Jeff Wilpon responded to a report in the New York Post and told reporters that he is more optimistic now than a month ago that the Mets can get new deals done with David Wright and R.A. Dickey.
He is encouraged more and more as the process moves along because there’s been back and forth conversations, reports Marc Carig.
Wilpon also added that he could see a scenario where both...
There has been TOO much talk about the Mets keeping/trading R.A. Dickey without any real discussion over what they think they could realistically get for a 37-year old Cy Young. It’s great that he throws a pitch that’s easy on the arm and has shown remarkably good health but age is always a concern and just as the Mets are more eager to trade Dickey than David Wright because...
If you believed everything that you’ve heard, you might be under the impression that we have the next Miguel Cabrera in our system. I don’t mean to burst your bubble, but I’m not signing up for that just yet. Does that mean I don’t believe in Wilmer Flores? Quite the opposite actually – I just don’t like putting lofty expectations on young players.
Flores is and has always...
Yesterday afternoon, it was announced by the AHRC New York City Foundation that New York Mets first baseman, Ike Davis — as well as New York Yankees pitcher C.C. Sabathia — will be honored at the 33rd Annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner, at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City on February 5th, 2013.

The New York Mets today announced the Mets Holiday Ticket Sale – featuring a limited number of single-game tickets and four-game Holiday Packs – starting this Monday, November 19 at 10:00 a.m. at Mets.com and (718) 507-TIXX.
Single-game tickets for most April and May games start at $12 and will only be available through December 20. A limited number of tickets for Opening Day...
If I see one more post about this newly drummed up Opening Day ticket fiasco, I think I’ll scream. Nah, not really.
But I do think it’s comical reading all these posts everywhere knocking the Mets because their Opening Day tickets cost more money than an ordinary April game against the Marlins. Is that concept really that difficult to figure out? Familiar with the word capitalism...
In reading a column from Buster Olney recently I saw the ESPN writer make a pretty bold statement regarding the Wilpon family and the New York Mets. Most of the column requires ESPN Insider access to read, but Olney makes his point pretty clear in the intro (click here to read in full):

If you were to search Stub Hub for 2013 Opening Day baseball tickets what would you expect to pay for the Mets opener? For the worst seat in the house, about $30 would sound appropriate and one would only pay that much because it is opening day.
Early on Monday, the Mets placed single-game tickets on sale for the 2013 season for games through May 26. The minimum price for the...
R.A. Dickey will deservedly be accepting the Cy Young Award at the BBWAA’s annual awards dinner this January. The 38-year-old knuckleballer for the Mets, found a fitting epilogue to his storybook season tonight, when he was named winner of the 2012 National League Cy Young Award.
Dickey earned 27 of 32 first-place votes, finishing ahead of Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers...
With the Arizona Fall League now at an end, here is a quick summery of our eight prospects fared while playing for the Surprise Saguaros.
Adam Kolarek (0-0, 2.92 ERA, 12.1 IP, 19 H, 5 BB, 8 K) – The Mets have high hopes for Kolarek who could be a future closer for the team by 2015. After a superb campaign at St. Lucie, where Kolarek struck out 70 in 57 innings...
