PLAYERS: RA Dickey
TEAMS: New York Mets
Andy Martino of the Daily News, reports that if the Mets were to pursue a trade for their top starter R.A. Dickey, at least 12 or more teams could be interested according to a few baseball executives he spoke with. One National League talent evaluator told Martino, “It makes sense that they would think about selling high on him, there would obviously be a lot of interest.” While he adds that it’s far from certain that the Mets will deal their ace, there is far more talk about trading Niese than Dickey. Either way, both pitchers will draw a lot of interest. Dickey is coming off a Cy Young caliber season, going 20-6 with a 2.73 earned run average. He is signed for 2013 to a $5 million dollar contract. If you had to absolutely trade one of Dickey of Niese, who would it be?

Nothing Doing As Far As Talks With Wright and Dickey

There’s been no progress regarding new extensions with David Wright and R.A. Dickey since they had their options picked up last week. Some reports said that negotiations were at a standstill last week, but today Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger reports that the Mets are not close to reaching new agreements with either Wright or Dickey, according to a one person with knowledge...

Mets Opening Day Rotations: 2013-2016

Aces Up: Matt Harvey is just one of a bevy of talented starting pitchers sprinkled throughout the Mets system. I thought I’d take some time to examine what our opening day rotations would look like in the years to come. It’s basically an introspective on how far the Mets minor league system has come over the last two years, particularly among right-handed starting pitching...

Mets 2012 Player Review: Daniel Murphy, 2B

 DANIEL MURPHY, 2B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: It was more a matter of hope than it was solid expectations for second baseman Daniel Murphy. After all, this is a player who has had trouble staying healthy, and was frequently in danger of hurting himself in the field.  At the plate, the Mets expected little power production, but a high batting average and decent on-base percentage....

2012 Mets Player Review: Ruben Tejada, SS

Tejada surprised many with his quality offensive production in 2012 PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: Perhaps no Met endured as much preseason scrutiny as shortstop Ruben Tejada. Although he played well in 2011, hitting .284 in place of the injured Jose Reyes, this year the job was his and he would be judged as a starter. Tejada played a combined 105 games at second base in 2010 and 2011...

After hitting over .300 in his last...

The Mets and the Cy Young Award

On November 14th, it will be announced whether R.A. Dickey will be the Mets 5th recipient of the NL Cy Young Award or not.  Either way, it is certain that he will be the 27th, and 16th individual Met to receive NL Cy Young consideration by the Baseball Writers Association of America’s voters. So let’s have some fun and look back at R.A.’s predecessors in being in the running...

David Wright Named Wilson Defensive Player of the Year

After being denied a Rawlings NL Gold Glove as the league’s top defensive third baseman in 2012, David Wright can take solace in being named the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year for the Mets. Wright trumped Gold Glove winner Chase Headley in just about every advanced defensive metric at third base, but that didn’t stop the coaches and managers from muffing up the decision...

Wilson Makes Better Baseball Gloves Than Rawlings

After being denied a Rawlings NL Gold Glove as the league’s top defensive third baseman in 2012, David Wright can take solace in being named the Wilson Defensive Player of the Year for the Mets.

When Sandy Promised “Wholesale Changes” Did It Resonate With You?

October is gone, the World Series is gone too, and we’re into the first week of November. All quiet on the Eastern Front. Thanks to some of the well-timed leaks soon after the season ended, there was suddenly an urgency to this offseason compared to seasons past. An apparent $100 million offer was being floated to the media and in turn to us, a specific quote that both Dickey and...

What would you tell Joan Payson in 1975?

My Facebook friend Mike Emeigh had an interesting post over at BTF the other day where he asked: Wind back the calendar to 1975. If you could have told MLB then one thing about the game, what would it be? It provided some interesting answers so I thought we should examine the same question from a Mets POV. But before we get to the Mets, let’s look at a baker’s dozen of the serious...
