SCOTT RICE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets Unlikely To Sign A Second Lefty Reliever

Speaking to reporters at Citi Field today, GM Sandy Alderson pretty much validated what I suspected a few days ago and said it’s unlikely the Mets sign a second lefty. Alderson said he likes likes the potential competition between recently signed minor leaguer Scott Rice and Rule 5 selection Sean Gilmartin and if nothing comes of it, he’s perfectly OK going with six righties...

A look at the last two Mets moves

”It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we...

Three reasons why re-signing Scott Rice is a good move

The New York Mets are in the market to fill a few holes at the winter meetings. The most talked about has been a short stop, however, just slightly less discussed is a left-handed reliever to compliment Josh Edgin. While there are options out there via the trade route, this isn’t a good option. The problem is that option would have the team giving up far too much to acquire a...

Josh Edgin and the overdue death of LOOGY culture

If asked to identify the strength of the team coming into the season, most people would have said the starting rotation. But here in early July, the strength of the squad for nearly the last month has been the bullpen. The relievers got off to a poor start but the Mets shuffled through some of the dead weight and since June 9, the bullpen has been fantastic. What’s so special...

Mets get first-hand experience against all-righty bullpen

Generally speaking, Interleague games are not my favorites. My preference is for a balanced schedule and you simply cannot have that with Interleague games. Be that as it may, the last two games against the Angels have been fun, even if they have both been four-hour affairs that required extra innings. There’s the joy of seeing Mike Trout, the chance to once again see Albert...

Turned Off

I had great seats at Thursday’s game, and I attended with great people. The seats will not always be that great, and I may not have people to go with all the time. What this means, I fear, is that the best part of attending a Met game for me in 2014, on a consistent basis, is the 20 second clip of Turn It On Again by Genesis that they play during the opening montage. No, really...
