Harper: Marlins may only offer 3-year deal to Jose Reyes

With Jose Reyes set to meet with the Miami Marlins some time today, fans are understandably worried that the man they watched dazzle them at shortstop  for the better part of eight years may be on his way out.  People close to the team, however, may not be as worried….at least not when it comes to Miami.  According to John Harper of the Daily News: Photo by Michael G. Baron...

David Wright Hasn’t Been The Same Since Matt Cain

Ever since Shea Stadium closed its doors for the final time in 2008, David Wright has not been the same player.  At least that’s what I hear from many Mets fans.  Although I do think the move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field has hurt Wright’s power stroke, I don’t think the ballpark is to blame for his overall decline at the plate from All-Star hitter to strikeout-prone former...

Mets David Wright Not A Golden Goose (Pt. 1)

As the hot stove league kicks into full gear, Mets third baseman David Wright has taken center stage as reports have the Anaheim Angels a potential trade partner.

Could Wayne be out of the booth...

The Daily News is reporting that Wayne Hagin's contact is up and the Mets maybe considering a change in the booth instead of re-newing.  Initially I really disliked Hagin, his slow mid-western style didn't work for me but over time he has grown on me.  Not that I'd miss him if they decided to go in a different direction but it I have found myself at times enjoying the...

The Mets Are Wrong If They Think They Can Get Big Value For Wright

The Hot Stove League is officially heating up. For some teams that means making careful plans for upgrading their roster based off thoughtful planning and complex research. Others, well, they just hope to use hocum and misdirection. Take for example the New York Mets: In other words, if the Mets could find the young, defensive-oriented center fielder they crave plus an arm or...

If Jose goes, Wright could be next

David Wright has spent most of the offseason in Virginia, sheltering himself from the uncertainty surrounding the Mets’ future -- including his own, and Jose Reyes’.“You realize if Jose goes, I guess anybody can go,” said Wright, who is trying not to focus too much on offseason issues.“Every...

Mets Plan To Tender Pagan

A lot of people would be surprised by this but it appears that the New York Mets will actually tender a contract to outfielder Angel Pagan. The outfielder had a down year but there’s still reason for hope as he had very successful 2009 and 2010 seasons. Although you have to wonder if the risk / reward is worth it for a team with money problems. The Mets are clearly down on Angel...
