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 […]

Queens is Burning

What a crazy day yesterday was. Rick Down was fired as hitting coach. Rickey Henderson was added to the coaching staff but to an unannounced position. He may be hitting coach but so may Howard Johnson who filled the duty last night as Henderson couldn’t get to New York from Oakland in time for the […]



Goodbye Cliff, Hello Moises

The Mets affectively cut Cliff Floyd loose with yesterday’s signing of Moises Alou. According to general manager Omar Minaya Alou will be the regular left fielder next season making Floyd, affectionately called ‘glass’ by fans, expendable.



A Lasting Impression?

Barry M. Bloom writes about Lastings Milledge and what may happen to him once Cliff Floyd and Xavier Nady are both back in the lineup.



Nady DLed, Milledge Promoted

Xavier Nady had an emergency appendectomy today and has been placed on the DL. He will be replaced on the roster by Lastings Milledge. I expect that Milledge will be the regular right fielder while Nady is out and be returned to triple-A afterward. Unless, of course, he knocks the skin off the ball in […]



Will Soler Shine Tonight?

Cuban Alay Soler makes his major league debut for the Mets tonight. Soler defected and signed with the Mets 2 years ago but due to the immigration process didn’t pitch for the Mets until spring training this year. He’s made only a handful of starts in the minors and is making the jump from AA […]



Heilman Throws One Away

Yesterday the Mets announced that the starting rotation for the Milwaukee series this weekend will be Jeremi Gonzalez, Jose Lima and Pedro Martinez. One has to wonder if that affected Aaron Heilman‘s performance last night.
