JOHN MAYBERRY RUMORS

Will John Mayberry Jr. signing hurt Eric Campbell, too?

Barring any Spring Training trade (ha!) or injury, the Mets’ 2015 Opening Day roster is pretty much set. There’s the usual battles for roster spots 23-25 but hopefully those are among players who have already seen time in the majors last year with the Mets. We all hope that the days of an NRI like Blaine Boyer coming to camp and winning a job with 10 good innings of Grapefruit...

John Mayberry and Wasted Resources

Back in December, I argued against tendering a contract to John Mayberry, suggesting that his salary outweighed his projected contributions. Mayberry was worth rostering when he made the league minimum and exhibited upside, but he was well past both points. There was no risk to letting him go, because despite his athleticism and versatility, he had been a replacement-level player...

Could Mayberry’s Days as a Phillie Be Numbered?

The big news from Spring Training today came from comments made by manager Ryne Sandberg. Sandberg’s comments were in reference to where he sees a number of players on the 2014 roster.

Phillies must trade John Mayberry before tomorrow's Rule 5 Draft

John Mayberry must not be on the Phillies 40-man roster this time tomorrow. Mayberry must be traded tonight. Why the urgency? The Phillies were given a gift last week when they earned an extra Rule 5 draft selection from the Cubs through a grievance. It gives the Phillies the 4th and 7th picks in tomorrow's Rule 5 draft. Problem is, they have two selections in the draft and...

Is an Upgrade Over Mayberry Even Available?

There has been much discussion about the Phillies reluctance to let John Mayberry Jr. walk. In my offseason plan posted last month on PhilliesNation.com, it included letting Mayberry go and signing Chris Young to a two-year, $10 million deal. The Phillies instead held onto JMJ and inked Marlon Byrd to a two-year, $16 million deal. Now, there have been rumblings from the organization...
