Jon Niese, like most Mets, has little trade value

It’s a rare day when I haven’t visited MLB Trade Rumors on more than one occasion. I must be a masochist because my visits there are mostly prompted by interest in what the Mets are doing. And you all know already what the Mets are doing on the trade front: nothing, not even intriguing talk. It seems that other teams mention making a player or two available and like sharks smelling...

Despite Recent Run Of Success, Interest In Jon Niese Remains Stagnant

Despite the recent run of success by lefthander Jon Niese, Andy Martino of the Daily News says it’s done little if anything to increase his value or interest in him. Baseball people he checked in with were impressed that Niese had pitched well against quality teams like the Blue Jays, Cubs and Giants, but noted that good general managers are rarely swayed by a hot streak. “I...

Jon Niese: Not on the DL and pitching great

From all indications, the Mets spent a fair amount of time trying to trade a veteran starting pitcher this past offseason. The response from other teams was either low-ball offers or no offers at all, as they tried to pry loose Noah Syndergaard, instead. You can’t blame a team for trying to get Syndergaard. But you can blame them for missing the boat on Jon Niese. Here was...
