Potential Seattle Trades and Mariners needs

There’s still a few holes to fill The Seattle Mariners certainly have been busy this offseason. The first shot fired was just a pop gun snapping saying, “Hey, we just signed utility man Willie Bloomquist.” The second shot was fired from a cannon and one heard all throughout the Bronx when the M’s landed Robinson Cano. The Mariners sailed on and landed Logan Morrison and...

Mariners sign Ramon Ramirez, more on minor league deals

There's been some scattered news about two of these guys before, but the Mariners waited until after the holidays to make it official, so let's check in with them now. The M's signed outfielder Cole Gillespie, RHP Matt Palmer, and RHP Ramon Ramirez to minor league deals, including a ticket to Peoria. They're all solid moves, and one of them could be great. Here'...

Mike Kickham optioned back to minors by Giants

Well, that was fast. The Giants on Wednesday optioned starting pitcher Mike Kickham back to the Triple-A Fresno, after calling him up to the show on Monday. Kickham surrendered four runs in 2.1 innings, picking up the loss, in his major league debut on Tuesday against the swingin’ A’s. The Giants also purchased from Fresno the contract of right-hander Ramon Ramirez, who won...

SF Giants lineup: Plus Kickham optioned to Fresno, Ramon Ramirez called up

After seeing a new face this week Giants fans will welcome back an old one, 31-year-old right-hander Ramon Ramirez. The relief pitcher was called up for the first time this season Wednesday when the Giants optioned Tuesday’s starter Mike Kickham back to AAA. Kickham’s first career start was underwhelming, when he ceded four earned runs in just 2.1 innings of work against Oakland...

SF Giants Rumors: Spring Cuts, Gaudin Wins Job, Sandoval, Noonan, Pill, Etc.

Last Friday reliever Ramon Ramirez and infielder Wilson Valdez were given their releases. On Sunday reliever Dan Runzler was optioned to Fresno. He was having a strong spring, but his last few outings went downhill. Chad Gaudin has had his contract purchased and has been added to the San Francisco Giants Major League roster. This means he’s officially made the team. Pablo Sandoval...

Giants cut Ramon Ramirez, Wilson Valdez

The Giants on Friday released both reliever Ramon Ramirez and infielder Wilson Valdez, who both had opt-out clauses in their contracts. Both players had no chance of making the opening day roster, and the Giants reportedly wanted to give both time to be picked up by teams that provided more favorable situations. According to Andrew Baggarly, the Giants want to re-sign Ramirez to...

SF Giants Rumors: Angel Pagan, Melky Cabrera, Angel Villalona Reports, Giants Tickets

Position players are reporting to camp today, and Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com tells us (via Twitter) Angel Pagan, Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez all have their lockers in a row. Torres and Ramirez were traded to the Mets last offseason for Pagan. One year later the Giants have brought back Torres on a one-year deal, and Ramirez on a minor league deal.

LOL Mets

Yep, so everyone who was involved in that 2011 deal between the New York Mets and the San Francisco Giants are now on the Giants, and the two players traded to New York are back on rather inexpensive deals, at that.  Oh, and the Giants won the World Series. So, LOL Mets.  Angel Pagan got pretty damn good when he came to the Giants, and both Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez were...

Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez Come Full Circle

Last off season, only a few hours after we learned that Jose Reyes had signed with the Miami Marlins, Sandy Alderson made some noise of his own and traded Angel Pagan to the Giants in exchange for center fielder Andres Torres and reliever Ramon Ramirez. After already signing Andres Torres to a one-year deal, $2 million deal last month, the Giants have just agreed to a one year deal...

Mets Have $95M Payroll And Only $5 Million To Spend? Not Exactly…

Just caught a glimpse of this on MetsBlog: So, as we’ve been discussing all winter, the Mets payroll is around the same number as it was last year, but without adding new talent to the roster (and reducing their payroll commitments by parting ways with Jon Rauch, Mike Pelfrey, Andres Torres and Ramon Ramirez). Now, Sandy Alderson has indicated he would be able to expand the budget...

The Unknown Commodity: Bullpen Arms

It seems like year after year the Mets are looking at upgrading their bullpen. Whether it’s Sean Green, Elmer Dessens, Francisco Rodriguez, Scott Schoeneweis, Billy Wagner, Jon Rauch, Ramon Ramirez, Jason Isringhausen, or even D.J. Carrasco. It never seems like the Mets have figured out what makes for a great bullpen year after year. Sure you can develop arms like Atlanta, but...

Hairston Among Seven Mets Who Became Free Agents Today

Last night when the clock struck midnight, the following players became free agents and will most likely not be back. They include Scott Hairston, Jon Rauch, Ramon Ramirez, Ronny Cedeno, Kelly Shoppach, Tim Byrdak and Chris Young. Yesterday, a club source told Mike Puma of the NY Post that Hairston was the one free agent the Mets most want to keep, but that the veteran outfielder...

Mets walk 9 batters, lose 3-2 to Marlins

The New York Mets issued nine walks and it eventually caught up to them. Giancarlo Stanton hit his 37th homer, and Rob Brantly hit a tiebreaking RBI double in the eighth inning to help the Miami Marlins beat the New York Mets 3-2 Monday night. In the bottom of the eighth, Ramon Ramirez (3-4) allowed a leadoff walk to Carlos Lee and then allowed Lee to reach second on a wild pitch...

The Marlins (68-92) came from behind late in the game to beat the Mets (73-87) by the score of 3-2 tonight in Miami. What a sleeper this game was. Seriously, I caught myself nodding off at least twice.Jeurys Familia made his first major league start and his reputation for wildness was on full display for all to see in this game.

Braves Pummel Hefner And Mets In 11-3 Bashing

The Mets (65-74) lost to the Braves (80-60) by the score of 11-3 on Saturday evening at Citi Field. Apparently, Kris Medlen is not beatable. (How the hell do you win 19 straight games under one pitcher?). He did, however, lose his no-ER run streak against the Mets. I guess that is a moral victory. But yeah, we lost. Rain delay and all, it was not a fun day for baseball. Jeremy...

Ramon Ramirez gets the Win but Jeremy Hefner earns a QS

The Mets used four pitchers last night and the one who likely did the worst job on the night – Ramon Ramirez – came away with the Win. That’s the way it goes sometimes because no statistic is perfect. The annoying thing is that many people will forgive the imperfections of certain stats, like Wins, yet are not willing to give other stats a chance because they focus only...

Mets bullpen continues to roll……seriously

It only took the New York Mets bullpen till late August to finally put things together and get on a roll.  Sure, the team is sitting in sole possession of 4th place in the NL East (18 1/2 games behind the Washington Nationals), but when you’re hot, you’re hot.  The Mets, coming off their first four-game winning streak since June 27-30, dropped the series finale to Philadelphia...

Pre-Game: Colorado Rockies (49-73) @ New York Mets (57-67)

Last night was just another example of the ineptitude of the 2012 New York Mets.  Rookie phenom Matt Harvey went out there and mowed the Rockies down over 6 innings with 9 strikeouts.  He left the game tied at one and within two pitches after the 7th inning started, the lead was gone.  Ramon Ramirez coughed a gopher ball and that was that.  Another wasted effort.  The story...
