Alderson Named MLB Executive Of The Year

Mets GM Sandy Alderson is an analytics guy, and while there’s debate at to whether that’s the be-all-and-end-all of building a team remains in question, there is no doubt as to his role in taking this team to the World Series. For that, he was named Major League Baseball’s executive of the year by Baseball America. ALDERSON: Worthy honor. (AP) “Sandy is the best leader...

Mets Receiving Trade Inquiries On Juan Lagares, But Unlikely To Deal Him

Ken Davidoff of the New York Post reports that the Mets are unlikely to deal Juan Lagares even though they have received several trade inquiries on him recently.

He eventually lost his starting job in centerfield after the team acquired Yoenis Cespedes over the summer...

The non-tender deadline is this Wednesday and many teams have decisions to make. One candidate who could be non-tendered is New York Mets infielder Ruben Tejada. We all remember Tejada from the 2015 National League Division Series when Chase Utley slid hard into second and broke Tejada’s leg. Tejada missed the remainder of the postseason due […]

Ben Zobrist reportedly No. 1 offseason target for Mets

    If you can’t beat ’em, sign ’em. At least that might be the mindset for the New York Mets, who are reportedly making Kansas City Royals utility man Ben Zobrist their top offseason target less than a month after Zobrist and the Royals defeated them in the 2015 World Series. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Sunday, Zobrist is the Mets’ No. 1 free agent...

How the Mets should replace Yoenis Cespedes

Yoenis Cespedes is a beast. Physicists examine the explosion of ball off his bat for the Big Bang Theory. His home runs make fireworks look like pop caps. He runs so fast he makes Speedy Gonzalez look like regular Gonzalez. He is, the most interesting man in baseball. Cespedes joined the New York Mets for the playoff run and not only did they reach the postseason, they were playing...

The Future is Now for the Mets Starting Rotation

Here’s a scary thought: the average age of Matt Harvey, Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Zack Wheeler is 25 years old. And once Wheeler returns to action (still looking towards June-July 2016), those five will make up New York’s rotation. For quite some time, at least. As a team that just represented their league in the World Series, that’s not too shabby....

Mets need to find roles for Wilmer Flores and Juan Lagares

If you go way way back in Mets history you know that the earliest off seasons featured the team’s front office just trying to add some major league caliber players to the roster. But if you fast forward to the modern era of bullpen usage you know that one off season task the Mets continually have is fixing the bullpen. And once again it is something that has to be addressed in...

What does Sandy Alderson have up his sleeve?

There’s always speculation this time of year about what free agents the Mets might sign and what trades we might make. But this year the hot stove is really boiling over. Playing in the World Series and then having arguably your two best hitters hit free agency will do that. Adding to the intrigue is that GM Sandy Alderson’s phone is ringing off the hook with rival GMs inquiring...

What Does the Offseason Hold for Daniel Murphy?

Daniel Murphy is just 30 years old. He’s an infielder that’s capable of playing first, second, and third base—though he’s not particularly good at either—and he’s been a remarkably consistent hitter over his seven-year career, all spent as a New York Met. He also happens to be a free agent (he turned down the qualifying offer valued at $15.8 million last week), and while...
