“The Mets and Rockies briefly talked about building something around Huston Street and Pelfrey, but the Mets do not seem overly enamored with Street,” the New York Post’s Joel Sherman recently said on Twitter. Earlier this week, SI.com’s Jon Heyman said on Twitter that the Mets will tender a contract to Pelfrey, who is again eligible for arbitration this winter when he is expected to earn around $6 million; or, the team could non-tender him and make him a free agent. Matthew Cerrone: (Posted on Nov. 1, 2011): The team values innings pitched and, at the very least, he delivers them and with potential. They say he could end up earning around $6 million next season. He was probably worth twice that in his best season (2010), and half that in his worst season (last year).

The only choice at 2B for Mets is Daniel Murphy

Recently, the Mets let it be known that if they re-sign Jose Reyes, that Ruben Tejada will be the team’s starting second baseman in 2012. And if Reyes bolts, they’ll move Tejada to shortstop and have Daniel Murphy starting at second base. Many fans seem surprised by this news, figuring that Murphy’s career in the middle of the infield was over. In 2011, Murphy posted a...

Mets Top Position Player Prospects Were Disappointing in 2011

I came into this season with high hopes for guys such as Cory Vaughn, Cesar Puello, Wilmer Flores and Aderlin Rodriguez.  However, not a single one of the players I just listed came close to their 2011 expectations, especially for where they were ranked in the system.  I understand that they are young, and still have time to develop, but was it to much to ask for one of them to perform at...

What is this, MarlinsBlog?

Friend of MetsBlog, @ChrisDAPS on Twitter, created this: Matthew Cerrone: Obviously that’s an exaggeration, but it’s a point well taken… it has felt like this of late, considering every third post here over the last week or so has mentioned the Marlins. It’s frustrating to spend this much time mulling over the seemingly progressive moves of a division rival, especially...
