METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets’ Top Five Issues Entering Spring Training

I trust you all enjoyed Thanksgiving with your families. With Christmas fast approaching, followed by the Super Bowl, it is time to forget about the Jets, Giants, Knicks and Nets, and focus on hockey and the upcoming baseball season. The spring training countdown begins at the conclusion of the Super Bowl. With that, I’ll take a look at what I consider the Mets’ top five issues...

Wright Remains the Mets’ Most Critical Question

Among the myriad of questions facing the New York Mets headed into next season, I believe the most important is the status of David Wright. A recent ESPN poll listed baseball’s top ten third basemen and Wright, based on his recent injury history and performance, wasn’t on the list and shouldn’t have been. Therein, is why he’s my most critical Mets’ question for 2015. The...

Adding Jacob deGrom to the Harvey-Wheeler comparison

Back in August of 2013, after he made his 10th start of the season, we ran a comparison of Zack Wheeler to what Matt Harvey had done in his first 10 starts in 2012. For fun, let’s throw Jacob deGrom into the mix and see how his numbers stack up to his more heralded teammates. Because if we asked at the beginning of 2012 which pitcher in the farm system was most likely to win...

Three reasons to give thanks for the New York Mets

The New York Mets are an enigma. At times they make us cheer, at other times they make us cry, and even other times they makes us throw something at the tv or explain to the police that you’re sorry for the noise but the Mets are on and you’ll try to keep it down. We all have reasons for loving them. Whether we grew up in a family of fellow Mets fans or adopted them later in...

MLB Rumors: Mets Interested In Sox’ Bogaerts

The holes in the roster of the New York Mets have shrunk considerably in size over the last 2-3 years with the emergence of young stars like starting pitchers Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, as well as position players stepping up in the form of guys like Lucas Duda and Gold-Glover Juan Lagares. However, the Mets are yet to produce a winning season under General Manager Sandy Alderson...

Potential Mets’ 2015 Batting Order

Let’s assume the Mets won’t make any significant additions at the Winter Meetings, and what we have now is what we’ll get Opening Day. Given that, here’s what I see as a potential batting order: Juan Lagares, CF: In the absence of a legit leadoff hitter, the Mets would be making a gamble. Lagares has the speed and showed he can steal a base. He must improve his on-base percentage...

Alderson Willing To Forfeit Another Draft Pick? On Who Exactly?

Sandy Alderson told MLB Network Radio that he would consider forfeiting another draft pick if he can sign a player at a discount toward the end of the offseason. “We’d consider it. Of course it’s easier to give up a second-round pick after we’ve already lost a first-round pick.” Alderson pointed to last offseason when Nelson Cruz settled for a one year deal for $8 million...

Dice-K Matsuzaka headed back to Japan

According to the Japan Times, Daisuke Matsuzaka is returning to Japan after playing six seasons with the Red Sox and the past two seasons with the Mets. He’s agreed to a contract with the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks, who are the reigning Japanese League champions. Matsuzaka left Japan in 2007 to sign a $51 million contract with the Red Sox and had immediate success, but he has since...

Mets interested in Craig Breslow

This offseason, the New York Mets seek left-handed relievers to put in the bullpen. One player they are interested in is Craig Breslow. Last year with Boston, Breslow went 2-4, with a 5.96 ERA in 60 appearances. #Mets have shown interest in free-agent LH reliever Craig Breslow, sources say. — Jon Morosi (@jonmorosi) November 25, 2014 The Mets only had two lefty’s in the pen...

These Rule 5 Draft Prospects Could Help Mets

Delino DeShields Jr. could be a solid Rule 5 selection. With the Mets 40 man roster currently at full capacity without adding a possible shortstop or left-handed reliever it may seem unlikely they would take someone in the Rule 5 draft. But there are still players on the Mets’ 40 who are very vulnerable starting with Ruben Tejada, Eric Young, Dario Alvarez, Cesar Puello, and Gonzalez...

New York Mets trade rumors: Xander Bogaerts edition

Recent free agent signings by the Boston Red Sox have caused a shake up in some offseason predictions for the New York Mets. The Sox have reportedly signed both Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez. This appears to completely rework the left side of the infield, as Sandoval plays third base and Ramirez, despite diminished defense in recent years, is still listed as a shortstop. This...

New York Mets 2015 preview: moving the fences in now makes no sense

This winter, the dimensions at Citi Field are once again being shortened, now to further mimic those of Shea Stadium.  In 2011, the high left field wall was cut down, and the left and right field fences were moved in.  This time, the big changes are coming in center and right-center field.  For those who don’t know or haven’t been to Citi Field, the right-center field fence...

Did Zack Wheeler hurt the Mets by not completing seven innings?

The most interesting players are the ones where smart people can disagree. Perhaps no player on the current Mets fits this bill better than Zack Wheeler. On one hand, you have people who wonder what the fuss is since he consistently wields high pitch counts and has shown almost no ability to complete seven innings. On the other hand, you have people who wish he went deeper into...

Mets won’t handle Matt Harvey like Nats did Strasburg in 2012

With an exciting, young starting rotation bolstered by the return of Matt Harvey and what appears to be a solid lineup, the New York Mets could be a contender next season in the NL East. Naturally, we’re early in the offseason and don’t yet know what moves each team in the NL East can still make. But the Braves look as if they’re renovating, while the Phillies are finally...

New York Mets: Daniel Murphy, cornerstone or trade bait?

Since 2012, there is one ballplayer in New York who has hit more consistently than the rest. And he isn’t the player you might guess (although he might be if you read the title.) Yup, the Mets’ Daniel Murphy. Over the past three seasons, he’s played more games and had a better overall batting average than David Wright, and his efficiency blows Lucas Duda and Curtis Granderson...

New York Mets Move In Fences At Citi Field For Second Time

NEW YORK — Mired in a streak of six straight losing seasons and hoping to boost offense, the New York Mets are moving in their fences at Citi Field for the second time. The Mets unveiled the new dimensions Tuesday, which bring in the fences 3-to-11 feet in front of the bullpens in right field. Right-center field will be 380 feet, down from 390 the past three years and 415 in the...

Niese, Collins got into a war of words during final start

The New York Mets might be shopping starter Jon Niese this winter, and they’re already damning his name…which won’t do a whole lot for his trade value, even though the story itself seems relatively tame. Via the New York Daily News… In the third inning of that Friday night home game against the Astros, after Ruben Tejada had drawn a walk, Collins signaled for his pitcher...
