Rumors

Schoeneweis, Sosa On The Block

There are reports that the Mets are shopping Scott Schoeneweis and Jorge Sosa. I don’t think they can get very mush for these guys, especially Schoeneweis who is due to make $7.2 million over the next couple of years. I think Sosa is more tradeable because I think he’s a better pitcher who is in […]



Church In Santana Package?

The rumor out of Boston, courtesy of this article in the Boston Herald, has Ryan Church being included in the package the Mets are offering the Twins for Johan Santana. This is an interesting development and helps explain the Lastings Milledge trade. It was widely known that Milledge’s trade value had gone down and that […]



Valentin May Be Back

Rumor has it that the Mets will resign Jose Valentin to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training. Valentin, who will not be ready for baseball activity until mid March, could provide infield depth behind middle infield starters Luis Castillo and Jose Reyes. As this is just a rumor I may be […]



More Pitching Updates

The Mets will reportedly need to give up John Maine if they hope to land Oakland’s Dan Haren. It also seems that no longer having Lastings Milledge as a bargaining chip may hurt the Mets run at Haren. Livan Hernandez remains a possibility if the Mets fail to land Johan Santana, Haren or Erik Bedard. […]



Pitching Update

Pitching is the key word for the Mets this off season so let’s take a quick look at what’s going on there. After being thought to be out of the race for Johan Santana because of a refusal to deal Jose Reyes the Mets have been linked to the Twins in negotiations for the star […]



Rubin: Mets Could Get Colón

In yesterday’s New York Daily News Roger Rubin suggests the Mets may sign Bartolo Colon. Angels assistant GM Ken Forsch has said that the Los Angeles Angels will not offer Colon salary arbitration and let him become a free agent. He could be had relatively cheap and may be worth a try considering the Mets […]



Minaya: Reyes Will Not Be Traded For Santana

Omar Minaya will not trade Jose Reyes for Johan Santana. And that will probably be the ultimate undoing of the Mets attempts to land the stud starting pitcher. With the loss of Torii Hunter to free agency it was previously expected that a main part of any deal for Santana would have to be outfield […]



ESPN: Don’t Count Mets Out For Santana

ESPN.com has posted an article about why the Mets can’t be counted out of the Johan Santana sweepstakes.



Mets Interest in Santana, Others

Mark Hale writes in today’s New York Post that the Mets will not trade for Johan Santana as a rental and will not include Jose Reyes, David Wright or Carlos Beltran in a trade for the Twins coveted left hander. Citing a source “with knowledge of the clubs thinking” Hale writes that the Mets would […]



Kazmir May Be Available

For all of those Mets fans still not over the Scott Kazmir trade. According to a Joel Sherman report in today’s New York Post the Tampa Bay Devil Rays may be willing to talk about trading the former Mets stud pitching prospect. I’ve gotten over the whole trade but when you hear a guy who […]
