Mets 2013 Bobblehead Giveaways May Be More Exciting Than The Season

The Mets have released their Bobblehead giveaways for the 2013 season. Last season the Mets had Rusty Staub, Tom Seaver, Keith Hernandez, Edgardo Alfonzo, and Mike Piazza. I was fortunate enough to get all but Hernandez (still looking for a reasonable price on e-Bay). This year there will be some more Bobblehead giveaways at GHMP: According to ESPN's Adam Rubin, the Mets will...

Kirk Nieuwenhuis Gets Leadoff Opportunity

Several days ago I gave you my idea for the Mets’ batting order and it included Kirk Nieuwenhuis as the leadoff hitter, so I was happy to read Adam Rubin’s story he will be given first chance to win that job. Nieuwenhuis will be the leadoff hitter for Saturday’s exhibition game against Washington. The Mets like Nieuwenhuis’ patience – he sees over four pitches an at-bat...

Mets360 2013 projections: Shaun Marcum

Next up in our projection series is Shaun Marcum. The Mets acquired Marcum on an incentive-laden deal, to replace R.A. Dickey in the rotation. No one expects Marcum to come close to Dickey’s 20 Wins or 233.2 IP or his 2.73 ERA, which is a good thing since Marcum has never done any of those things and comes in as an injury risk. Here’s what we think Marcum will do in 2013...

Projecting The Most Ideal Lineup For Mets This Season

Like every manager in the history of the game, I love to tinker with batting orders. So much can happen between now and Opening Day, but when it is below freezing it is as good a time as any to think of what Terry Collins’ lineup could be this summer. Collins is on record with Ruben Tejada in the leadoff slot, but I’m suggesting a different direction. Kirk Nieuwenhuis had...

Mets on SNY this spring starting Saturday

We dont have to go another weekend with out some type of Mets baseball.  I admit I have been with with the family and our little one and have not watched 1 episode of cold stove this off season. I will thought try to get some time in front of the TV this weekend when the Mets will be on the air !   Will be good to see Gary, Keith and Ron and here there take on the lackluster off season.  It

Mets' Frank Francisco to throw next week

The New York Mets' injured closer is working on starting the throwing portion of his rehab program.  He has not thrown since suffering inflammation in his surgically-repaired elbow.  However, Frank Francisco is scheduled to start throwing next week. According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, Monday is the target date to get Francisco throwing. Dan Warthen says Monday...

2013 burning question: New York Mets

Continuing from our season preview of the Mets earlier today... Can the Mets possibly go forward with this patchwork outfield? To say that the Mets outfield is unsettled is an understatement. If the season were to start today, the outfield would be manned by a rotating cast of five different men, possibly six if a proper right-handed complement to Lucas Duda emerges. Alas...

The Answer Is Jason Bay and Bobby Bonilla

Casey: I’ll take Mets Oddities for $400, Alex. Alex: The answer is Bobby Bonilla and Jason Bay. Casey: Who are the highest paid outfielders on the 2013 Mets? Alex: Good job, Casey, and I’m afraid we’re all out of time for this round as we head into Final Jeopardy. The Final Jeopardy category will be “Ponzi Schemes.” Think about your responses while we go to a quick commercial...

Sandy Alderson looks to avoid 2012 mistakes

Despite having a terrible bullpen, last year at the All-Star break the Mets were 46-40. Shortly after the break, on July 14th, Dan Stack noted that the Mets “rank last in bullpen ERA (4.94), 28th in WHIP (1.48) and 27th in batting average against (.267).” The bullpen is one of the easiest areas to improve around the All-Star break because teams out of the race are willing to...

The Equinox Of Wilpon Ridiculousness

We're only scant days away from actual games involving the New York Mets. Thank heaven and hell for that. You might have figured out that I've been focused on the banality of spring training relatively recently. The worst time to put Mets happenings into meaningful context is spring training, and the worst time within that time is the space between the moment the team reports...

Audiophile Mike Piazza is Tight with.....Fabio

Once Michael Francesa got Mike Piazza out of the shower and to the New York Mets, Francesa fielded many tips to the newsroom that spies had spotted MP out on the town with weatherman Sam Champion.... Full story at Bob's Blitz ~ http://www.bobsblitz.com
