He may just be hitting .209 in 29 games since joining the Mets, but Juan Uribe has had an enormous impact on this team in more ways that one. He also has had a bit of a flair for the dramatic. In yesterday’s 5-4 win over the Boston Red Sox, Uribe again found himself with […]
Terry Collins stared at his framed photo of Jerry Manuel and muttered with clenched teeth “I’ll show you gangsta, you mark-ass punk.” He then proceeded to hand a lineup card to Joe West that had Juan Uribe playing second base. Uribe rewarded Collins by getting two hits including a big two run double in the sixth after the Red Sox took the lead in the sixth, and by not being...
After crushing a fifth inning, three-run homer to left field off Miami’s starter David Phelps, Juan Uribe turned last night’s game against the Marlins into a laugher. However, those three runs Uribe produced proved to be critical in holding off a late ninth inning charge by the Marlins as the Mets prevailed by a score […]
In an attempt to strengthen their under-achieving lineup, the Mets swung a deal for infielders Juan Uribe and Kelly Johnson from the Atlanta Braves on Friday evening. In exchange for the infielders’ services, the Mets sent right-handers Rob Whalen and John Gant to the Braves. Neither of these arms are highly touted prospects. Kiley McDaniel […]
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the New York Mets have reached out to the Atlanta Braves about acquiring third baseman Juan Uribe. Heyman says the Braves want a mid-level prospect as long as any acquiring team is willing absorb the remaining $3 million dollars of Uribe’s salary. However, if a team were willing to up […]
It took a little while to get here, with an unexpected obstacle or two, but we’ve got a six-player trade between the Braves and the Dodgers. The youngest player involved is 27, the average age of the players is about 31, and this year they’ve all combined to be worth -1.2 WAR. Sounds to me […]
Juan Uribe was traded to the Braves in a deal involving Alberto Callaspo yesterday morning. Then he wasn’t because Callaspo said he loved playing for the Braves. Then it wasn’t ever going to get revived and Uribe was giving the press damage control quotes before the game started. Then Callaspo changed his mind about the whole thing and the terms of the trade ended up finalized...
The Los Angeles Dodgers have wrapped up the NL West. The Colorado Rockies aren’t playing for anything. So, Sunday’s game between the two is meaningless outside of players getting one last chance to add to their season stats. With both teams largely going through the motions, the Dodgers will take the opportunity to switch things […]
Los Angeles Dodgers General Manager Ned Colletti (mlb.com) Entering the offseason many envisioned the Los Angeles Dodgers would be big spenders and extremely active. The winter meetings have come and gone, but the Dodgers have been relatively quiet. Outside of re-signing key contributors J.P Howell, Juan Uribe, and Brian Wilson, the Dodgers have yet to make a big splash. The team...
In a move that was overdue, the Dodgers on Saturday re-signed Juan Uribe to a 2-year contract. It's the smart, somewhat safe play, but I find myself feeling a touch disappointed about this deal.Uribe had been holding out for three years. As the best free agent third baseman, he would have been foolish not to. He drew alleged interest from the Marlins, Rays and White Sox.I'm disappointed...
