Mets Would Trade Murphy For A Hefty Haul

Despite reports that the Mets are not actively shopping Daniel Murphy, ESPN’s Jayson Stark said in a chat today, that the Mets second baseman is available if teams were willing to pay a high price. “They’d definitely move him,” he writes. “But they want quality back. Sandy Alderson does a really good job of making these types of moves. And there are enough teams looking...

New York Mets Will Pay Some Of Bartolo Colon’s Contract In Trade

The New York Mets made two big acquisitions this summer, Curtis Granderson and Bartolo Colon. While Granderson will be with the Mets for awhile, it appears Colon’s days in a Mets uniform are numbered. Bartolo Colon has been solid for the team this season, pitching himself to a 9-8 record with a 4.03 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, and 100 Ks in 134 IP. So why would the Mets be willing to trade...

The Mets Must Take Risks to Improve the Team

Recent rumors that the Mets want in on potential talks for Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielder Carlos Gonzalez have created debate amongst the people of #MetsTwitter. Some, like myself, believe the Mets should make a serious push for one of these two players. Others think the Mets should avoid them because both players would cost a significant amount of talent and also...

New York Mets trade rumors: will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger?

With the trade deadline right around the corner, trade speculation and rumors are reaching their peak. It is no different with the New York Mets. I have thrown out some names of players who could be traded over the last few weeks. The only question remaining is will Sandy Alderson pull the trigger. Over his time with the Mets, Alderson has proven to be very deliberate in his actions...

Mets Willing To Eat Some Salary To Move Colon

Sources have told Andy Martino of the Daily News that the Mets are willing to eat approximately $2 million what remains on Colon’s two-year, $20 million contract ($11 million next season). He adds that despite being 42 next season, given Colon’s current level of performance, it is not crazy to think he could find a one-year, $9 million deal this winter, if he were a free agent...

Mets Unlikely To Trade Murphy, But Is That The Right Tact?

Marc Carig of Newsday reports that teams have reached out to the Mets about trading for second baseman Daniel Murphy. However, he adds that the front office is more likely to keep Murphy rather than deal him away. Yesterday I mentioned that I can’t see the Mets trading Murphy mostly because it would send a signal that the team is still not ready to be competitive and is still rebuilding...

Mets and DeGrom Facing A Looming Innings Cap

Prior to Tuesday nights game in Seattle, Jacob deGrom had won two straight decisions both pitching into the seventh inning and both wins were of the lopsided nature, as the Mets defeated the Atlanta Braves 8-3 and Miami Marlins 9-1. Not much effort was needed from the young rookie, even though he would pitch masterfully in both. Tuesday’s game against Seattle was a bit different...

Bartolo Colon Is Upping His Trade Value At The Perfect Time

Bartolo Colon was an interesting gamble for Mets general manager Sandy Alderson in the off-season.  I believe Sandy had every intention of flipping Colon for young prospects prior to this year’s trade deadline.  Bartolo’s Cy Young caliber performance in Oakland last year was expected to carry over to Flushing in 2014 and while it hasn’t been that stellar, he has put up above...

Mets Want To See More Consistency From Syndergaard

Almost echoing what I said yesterday, after the Mets wrapped up their series win in Seattle, they said they are not yet convinced that Noah Syndergaard is ready to make the move to the majors. What the Mets player development people are looking for from their top pitching prospect is the “consistency” that I talked about yesterday. Two front office people did admit to the Daily...

Tejada left the game under his own power, and was replaced by Eric Campbell who pinch ran and played the remainder of the game at SS. The good news is that Tejada passed...
