Most of you read my initial thoughts on Wheeler-gate early this morning; I think it was overblown. I wanted to just say one last thing in lieu of Sandy Alderson’s comments regarding the situation while a guest on WFAN. Here is what he said:
“We didn’t want this to escalate into an issue,” Alderson said. “We have had extensive conversations with...
I had the chance to talk to New York Mets left-handed pitching prospect Jack Leathersich last month before he headed to Port St. Lucie for the start of Spring Training.
Now that the season has begun, and all of our regular readers are returning from their offseason slumber, I’m going to re-post many of our interviews that you may have missed.
I can’t think of a better Mets...
Reports surfaced on Friday morning of an altercation between Mets prospects Zack Wheeler and Aderlin Rodriguez. Wheeler, of course, is the number one or two prospect in New York’s system depending on who you ask. Rodriguez is decidedly less famous, but still a quite talented young player. He led all Mets minor league players last season with 24 home runs and was listed as No. 15...
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, does a fine job of explaining why the Mets chose not to insure Johan Santana’s contract.
The Mets will be on the hook for the remaining $31 million owed to Johan Santana because they did not insure the contract. Why?
As premiums have skyrocketed because of escalating salaries and past payouts — such as the bailout when Mo Vaughn was owed $17 million...
“Last year I wanted to make the team out of spring training,’’ he said. “I think the hardest part was driving by the major league parking lot over to the minor league section one day and seeing all the cars getting shipped to New York. That was rough.
“This year, one of my buddies was in town, and he was driving me to the park and I could see my car up on top of the transport...
According to Terry Collins, Kirk Nieuwenhuis has officially made the Mets active roster as the fourth outfielder. But what is most surprising is that he named Collin Cowgill as the Mets everyday center fielder.
It was expected that Collins would work in a platoon role, but it looks like with few options, the Mets will hand him the everyday gig and hope for the best.
Sandy Alderson has announced during a conference call last night carried on SNY, that Johan Santana has a probable re-tear of his anterior capsule in his left shoulder and will likely miss the rest of the season.
The team said Thursday that the two-time Cy Young Award winner probably has re-torn the anterior capsule in his left shoulder and likely will need a second operation that...
Hubie Brooks was a great Met. Traded just before he emerged as an All-Star caliber shortstop, he nonetheless made his mark in the hearts of many a Met fan.
Brooks was the third player drafted in the 1978 amateur draft and was a September call-up in September 1980 (along with Mookie Wilson and Wally Backman). That year, he hit .309 in 89 PAs with 1 HR and 10 RBIs.
Ryan Zimmerman hit three home runs and Wilson Ramos hit two more as a split squad of Washington Nationals beat the Atlanta Braves 11-2 Wednesday.
Tyler Moore also homered for the Nationals, giving them six for the afternoon. Zimmerman and Ramos each had four RBIs.
Zimmerman opened the fourth inning with a home run off Daniel Rodriguez, then started the fifth with a drive against...
Spring Training is officially over. The Washington Nationals have packed their bags and headed north, and that means real baseball is very, very close.
But before the 2013 campaign begins in earnest, the Nationals and their fans still have a few more days of preseason – that magical period when anything is still possible and expectations run high – a few more days...
