Bullpen Stronger, Leadoff Still Weak

The Mets made a flurry of moves last night in the aftermath of Jose Reyes‘s departure. The truth is that these are moves that would likely have been made anyway but as Mets fans the Reyes parting is the watershed event of this offseason. Everything the Mets do now will be compared (by most, anyway) […]



Tonight’s Lineup Vs. Philadelphia (4/5/2011)

Here’s the lineup for tonight’s matchup against the Phillies: 7 Jose Reyes SS 16 Angel Pagan CF 5 David Wright 3B 15 Carlos Beltran RF 12 Scott Hairston LF 29 Ike Davis 1B 4 Brad Emaus 2B 13 Mike Nickeas C 55 Chris Young P    



Beltran’s Sore Knee

Carlos Beltran did the right thing earlier in spring training by relinquishing the center field position to Angel Pagan and move over to right. The reason for the move is his ailing knee. The same knee that will keep him out of today’s game. Beltran made his debut at DH yesterday and was scheduled to […]

Like Watching A Train Wreck

I can’t turn my back on this team for even a minute these days. On Monday I turned off the game to do some work when the Mets led 5-0 only to return in the 8th inning to see the tail end of J.J. Putz‘s meltdown. Then last night I had something to do during […]



Pagan Surgery Settles 5th Outfielder Battle

Angel Pagan has opted to have surgery on the bone spurs in his elbow and will be about 6-8 weeks. Pagan had a solid spring last year but his season got derailed by injuries (including surgery on a torn labrum) and he only got into 31 games. This setback will likely cost him a spot […]



Church Gets $2.8 Million, Avoids Arbitration

According to Jon Heyman the Mets and Ryan Church have agreed to a $2.8 million deal that will avoid an arbitration hearing. There are four Mets still set to go to arbitration. They are starting pitcher John Maine, reliever Pedro Feliciano and outfielders Jeremy Reed & Angel Pagan.



Sanchez Gets 128% Raise, Avoids Arbiration

According to reports the Mets have reached an agreement with Duaner Sanchez on a one year contract for $1,687,500 and avoids arbitration. The deal gives Sanchez a $950,000 raise. Sanchez faded down the stretch last year when it mattered most but in the crazy business of major league baseball he still merited a 128% increase. […]



Tonight’s Lineup

Tonight’s lineup was posted a little while ago. As noted earlier Brian Schneider is back from an injury. Perhaps more notable is that Carlos Delgado is batting in the sixth slot in the order. Delgado has been horrific lately. I’m curious if this is in response to his .208 average with 1 home run or […]



Mets At Cubs Today

I’ve been away for a few days but I’m back and ready to go now. And so are the Mets. They’ll be playing the Cubs today with first pitch coming up in about 15 minutes. The Mets are starting some backups today in typical day game after night game fashion. Angel Pagan will start against […]
