Countdown to opening day 2018: days hrs min sec


Should Ike Davis Go To AAA?

There’s a lot of talk lately about Ike Davis possibly being sent to the minors due to his current slump. Honestly I would have no problem with this if not for one issue. Davis proved something to me last season when he managed to hit 32 home runs. But he struck out 141 times too. […]

Market Definition of Wright’s Value

Just in time for the holiday season we finally have an estimate of David Wright‘s dollar value on the market. This comes courtesy of the Tampa Bay Rays and Evan Longoria. Longoria signed an extension through the 2022 season giving him 10-years worth $136.6 million. The extension is actually worth $16.7 million a year (starting […]

Too Early For Pelfrey Trade Talk

Mike Pelfrey has had a less than stellar start to the 2011 season. In his first two starts he’s pitched 6.1 innings allowing 12 hits, 11 earned runs and 5 walks while striking out only 3 batters. His ERA is 15.63. Before the season started many said that in the likely event that the Mets […]

DeRosa Available?

Jon Heyman of is reporting that the Cleveland Indians may be ready to trade versatile infielder Mark DeRosa. In light of the injury to Carlos Delgado this may be a good possibility for general manager Omar Minaya to investigate. Other possibilities that Minaya is reportedly interested in, such as Nick Johnson and Aubrey Huff, […]

Freddy We Hardly Knew You

Rumor has it that the Mets have released Freddy Garcia. (I saw this blogged somewhere but don’t have a solid source yet.) After a terrible outing for Buffalo last night Garcia seemed to indicate that he may retire. His agent has denied the retirement rumor but it seems like that may not matter if no […]

Sheffield A Low Risk Signing For Mets

Jon Heyman of is reporting that the Mets have signed Gary Sheffield. Though I’m skeptical about what Sheffield brings to the Mets both on and off the diamond I don’t think this is a bad signing (as I’m sure many Mets fans will think it is). Sheffield will most likely replace Marlon Anderson on […]

Mets Intrigued By Sheffield?

Adam Rubin is reporting in the New York Daily News that the Mets may have interest in signing Gary Sheffield. The work Rubin uses is “intrigued”. Sheffield was released from the Tigers the other day. He has 1 year remaining on his contract. Whoever signs him will only have to pay the $400,00 major league […]

Mets Sign Redding (And Other Rotation Thoughts)

The Mets signed RHP Tim Redding on Friday. This could be a bigger signing than it appears. Redding went 10-11 with a 4.95 ERA for Washington last year. To reach double digits in wins for a team like the Nationals is quite an accomplishment. But more important is that he pitched 182 innings. Having an […]

Willie Isn’t Dumb

Willie Randolph sounded less than confident about his status as the team’s manager when speaking to reporters yesterday. He referred to Omar Minaya “sharpening his machete” in Colorado. Willie’s no dummy. He should know from experience that just because someone gives you a vote of confidence doesn’t mean your safe. How many times did Willie […]

MLBTR: Mets Good Fit for Bonds

MLB Trade Rumors discusses the possibility of the Mets signing Barry Bonds even though Omar Minaya has publicly been in vehement no panic mode.
