Why Misleading Stats On David Wright Change Everything

Since 2004, David Wright has been a fan favorite.  His name can be found all over the Mets’ all-time offensive leaderboard and he has accomplished this all before his 29th birthday.  Because of this, some Mets fans would find it impossible to see the team without David Wright and would consider it sacrilege to trade him. However, I’ve been doing some research on the Mets...

American Pie’s ‘Paul Finch’ thinks Reyes is worth whatever the Mets pay him

“American Pie” star Eddie Kaye Thomas, who played the character Paul Finch, spoke about the Mets among other things in an interview with Katie Barry of ESPN: “Being a Mets fan is my north. Any maybe that’s my problem. Now it’s become part of my personality. I enjoy watching the Yankees, a team with a consistent lineup. Unfortunately, it’s easier to watch a winner. But...

Mets looking for new backup C, Paulino on the outs

“In Ronny Paulino’s first season in New York, the team did not view him as a diligent worker, adequate defensive catcher, or offensive force off the bench, and some are pushing to replace the arbitration-eligible backstop,” according to the Daily News. this post is still being updated


  If Angel Pagan is the Mets opening day center fielder I’m going to be pissed off.  A lot of my angst over Pagan has to do with his inconsistent play especially in the outfield and some of it has to do with what is perceived as a “me” attitude that looks as if it chaps the mangers ass as well. Terry Collins was miffed when Pagan took himself out of a game last year claiming...

When are the Mets going to do something?

The countless number of e-mails in my inbox today can mostly be summed up like this: “What is taking so long? When are the Mets going to do something?” Yes, things have been quiet. But, it’s not just quiet for the Mets, it’s quiet for pretty much every team right now (short of a few small deals here and there). Why? Well, I think teams were taking a wait-and-see approach...

Mets Still Quiet, Blame Omar not Sandy

The expression many of us still have since Minaya was fired as Mets GM two years ago. Like many Mets fans, the lack of action in this years free agent market is starting to get to me. I can understand the team isn’t exactly in the position we’d like them to be both financially and talent-wise, but when are they even going to be linked to someone? The only names it seems like...

Capps has not heard from the Mets since GM Meetings

According to the New York Post, “Paul Kinzer, the agent for reliever Matt Capps, says he hasn’t heard from Mets since the GM meetings,’ during which the Mets had told him they had a ‘possible interest’ in his client. Matthew Cerrone: To me, Capps is a middle reliever. He can be better than what he showed last year. But, even still, he shouldn’t be a closer. Nevertheless...

Loewen gets minor league deal with Mets (AP)

Pitcher-turned-outfielder Adam Loewen has agreed to a minor league contract with the New York Mets. The 27-year-old Loewen, who will attend major league spring training under Tuesday's deal, was 6 for 32 (.188) for Toronto last season with one home run and four RBIs. He hit .306 at Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League with 46 doubles, 17 homers and 85 RBIs.

Mets not in on Broxton

Reports indicate that Jonathan Broxton will select his next team within the week, but despite needing a closer the Mets aren't believed to be involved.  The Mets never appeared interested in Broxton and probably his injury history is why. I'm glad the Mets are passing on him, Broxton seems to be an injury waiting to happen...

Mets May Replace Paulino, Inquired On Jack Wilson

It's been a quiet offseason for the Mets to this point, but we can expect them to pursue help at shortstop whether or not Jose Reyes returns. They'll also look for depth in the rotation, the bullpen and potentially the outfield. Here’s the latest on some possible offseason moves... Some Mets officials were displeased with Ronny Paulino’s defense, offense and work...

Pirates Sign Nick Evans

According to Andy Martino of the Daily News, Nick Evans has signed a minor league deal with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Evans had a decent season in 2011 batting .256 with four home runs and 25 RBI in 176 at bats.. In 2010, he had a solid showing and posted a .300/.371/.536 slash with 23 homeruns and 80 RBIs in 548 PA between Binghamton and Buffalo. Evans could thrive in Pittsburgh...

Mets are strong players for Octavio Dotel

In a post to’s Hot Stove blog, Anthony DiComo says, “The Mets are strong players for right-handed reliever Octavio Dotel,” according to a person with knowledge of the discussions. The Cardinals have also expressed interest in retaining Dotel, explains DiComo, “as he played a significant role in their World Series run following a midseason trade from the Blue Jays.”
