Total Mets: The Definitive Encyclopedia Of The New York Mets’ First Half-Century

Total Mets is a must-have account of Mets history. Fans old and new will enjoy this well-written account by David Ferry. I wonder how my career might have turned out had I played for another team. Quite honestly, I think it might have been easier for me in the major leagues. When you start your career on a bad ballclub, everything is centered around yourself.–However, I was fortunate...

Will Wright Insist On A Full No-Trade Clause?

David Wright: Will he soon be laughing all the way to the bank? Ever since the 2012 season ended for the Mets, I’ve been very outspoken about the team and in particular the front office. Maybe it was the disgruntled Mets fan in me, but it’s nothing personal. As I’ve said many times before, I think Sandy Alderson and the rest of his staff are all very professional and all-around nice...

Mets Card of the Week: 1974 Felix Millan

1974 TOPPS DECKLE EDGE FELIX MILLAN What the heck is a deckle? Well, a “deckle” is a frame used when making paper by hand; by extension, a “deckle edge” is the rough, untrimmed edge that results from this process. Head to your local antiquarian book seller for a quick reference… Topps was not seeking to educate the youth of America in the finer details of 18th century...

The Mets' negotiations with David Wright are getting serious

A few hours ago, I posted about the Mets initially lowballing a long-term contract offer to David Wright. Since then, things have gone in a different direction. The Mets have drastically increased their offer, going from six years and $100 million to eight years and $135-140 million. Wright would make the $16 million he's due in 2013, the average value on the new contract...

Do Two Wrongs Make A Wright?

It was three weeks ago when we elected a president. After a long, nasty, ugly, expensive and bitter campaign we survived and made it to Election Day. And boom! Just like that more than 57 million Americans, those who voted for Mitt Romney, were pissed off. No matter who would be sworn in in January, literally half this nation would be upset. It was really a no-win situation. The...

Report: Mets Sweeten Contract Extension Offer For David Wright After Subpar Proposal

Contract extension negotiations between David Wright and the Mets have been bumpy. Early on Tuesday, FOXSports.com reported the Mets offered their cornerstone third baseman a six-year, $100 million extension. It appeared the club was lowballing their six-time All-Star with that offer. With Wright expected to refuse the initial terms, the Mets reportedly upped the ante for the 29...

Would John Lannan Be A Solid Fit For The Mets?

On Tuesday, Nationals beat writer William Ladson, tweeted that he expects the Nats to non-tender lefthanded starting pitcher John Lannan on Friday. Ladson also added that he believed Lannan would be a solid fit for the Mets. I took a quick glance at Lannan’s career numbers and the first thing that came to mind was, “I’ve seen these numbers before”. I was looking at a lefthanded...

Mets Make Wright $100MM Offer, Third Baseman Expected To Reject It

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the Mets offered David Wright a six-year, $100 million extension on Monday, on top of the $16 million owed in 2013. It’s the exact dollars and length of the deal that the Tampa Bay Rays gave to Evan Longoria yesterday. But Rosenthal says that the offer is expected to be rejected by Wright’s reps. Wright is wanting more in both years...

Mets Offer Wright 7 Year Deal Between $125-$150 Million?

Updated Post 3:30 PM Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports is now reporting that a source has revealed to him that the Mets counteroffer to David Wright is for seven years and between $125M and $150M. If Mets are indeed offering Wright such a deal, Rosenthal adds, it seems unlikely he would reject it unless he wanted to be a free agent at end of season. Wow! If it is $150 million, that would...

A look at the Mets-Braves rivalry

The Mets used to own the Braves. From 1975 to 1980, New York was 44-28 (.611) against Atlanta. And from 1984 to 1990, the Mets were even better, going 57-27 (.679) against the team they beat in the very first NLCS. But brother, things ain’t what they used to be. They say a generation is about 20 years, which means we have an entire generation of people who have known only the Braves...

Report: Mets offer Wright seven-year deal

The New York Mets have offered third baseman David Wright a seven-year deal worth in excess of $100 million, according to a New York Daily News report. A previous FOX Sports report said the Mets had proposed a six-year extension, but that that face of the franchise was seeking an extra year. Ryan Zimmerman of the Washington Nationals and Evan Longoria of the Tampa Bay Rays signed...

Rosenthal: Mets offer Wright 6-year/$100 million extension

According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, the New York Mets offered third basemen David Wright a six-year extension worth $100 million on Monday.  In Thanksgiving terms, I liken this to a lukewarm plate of turkey with mashed potatoes, no stuffing or cranberry sauce.  I guess it’s a starting point in that it follows suit with what Ryan Zimmerman got from the Nationals and matches...

Martino: Mets have made Wright 7-year offer in excess of $100M

Earlier this morning Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports said that “the Mets offered (David) Wright a six-year, $100 million contract extension on Monday, according to major-league sources.”   With Thanksgiving still on my mind I said that I felt such an offer was like a lukewarm plate of turkey with mashed potatoes, no stuffing or cranberry sauce. A recent tweet from Andy Martino...
