Torres Injury Rattles My Faith

Every time I start buying into the Sandy Alderson Mets being different than the Omar Minaya Mets something happens to bring things back into focus. This time it’s Andres Torres. Torres tweaked his already hurting left calf during yesterday’s opening day win over the Braves and will be placed on the disabled list. Kirk Nieuwenhuis […]

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) […]



Mets Shuffle Coaching Staff

The Mets announced coaching changes this afternoon. Ken Oberkfell (bench), Chip Hale (3B), Mookie Wilson (1B) and Jon Debus (bullpen) will not be back next year. Tim Teufel will coach third base in place of Hale, who has already signed as the Oakland A’s bench coach, and Ricky Bones will replace Debus. Dave Hudgens (hitting) […]



Davis To Have MRI

The Mets have sent Ike Davis back to New York for an MRI on his ailing leg. Davis injured the leg last night in when he collided with David Wright while both were attempting to make a play on a popup in front of the mound. This is both bad news and good news. The […]



Sandy Alderson Presents The Omar Minaya Mets

It’s beginning to feel a little like the Omar Minaya Mets again with the stories and denials about Johan Santana‘s stalled rehab. There was a report this weekend that attributed an unspecified person in the Mets organization saying the Mets may shut Santana down. Then Santana himself denied it. This coming less than a week […]



Time To Say Goodbye To Ollie?

Oliver Perez started today and had a decent outing… after giving up 3 runs without an out to start the game. There’s talk that this could be his last start as a Met. The rumor is that he’ll be asked to take a spot in the bullpen as a “situational” lefty. But when asked by […]



The Minaya Era Taught Me To Be Concerned For Beltran

After sitting out yesterday’s game due to a sore knee Carlos Beltran was expected to play in an exhibition game today. This morning that plan was changed and it was announced that Beltran would play in a simulated game instead. Still later manager Terry Collins said that Beltran will not play at all today. Still […]



Spring Thought

Spring training is here and I’m at work. Big projects are keeping me from blogging as much as I’d like but I hope to be able to blog more soon. As with most years I’m excited about spring training this year. Usually I’m excited because I love the game of baseball. And while that’s true […]



DePodesta Hired?

For the first time I can remember the Mets are actually building a front office team. This isn’t just hiring qualified for front office positions. This is hiring people who are well respected in the baseball community with plenty of experience and credibility. This isn’t like hiring Omar Minaya and having him bring in the […]



Reyes Option Picked Up, Manager Search Begins

Sandy Alderson made his first player move yesterday when he picked up the option on Jose Reyes‘s contract. Reyes will make $11 million in 2011. Meanwhile, Alderson has invited Carlos Beltran to New York for a meeting. I’m not sure what Alderson wants to discuss but I’d speculate he wants to talk about the direction […]
