Bullpen Thoughts

A couple of weeks ago, FoxSports.com's Dayn Perry weighed in on Francisco Rodriguez' "team to beat" quote. I myself didn't feel the need to weigh in on it at the time because I think this whole Mets-Phillies back and forth has become rather silly. The obvious truth is that the...

Mets Need To Spend Intelligently

I know I've said this before, but recent events compel me to restate this: if I wanted to be a Yankees fan I could have been one. With the Yankees recent signings of C.C. Sabathia, J.J. Burnett and Mark Teixeira, some in the local media are proclaiming that the Mets...

A History of the Mets at Second Base Part 7 - Roberto Alomar

Editor's Note: This is the seventh in a series of new articles Barry will be writing on Mets second basemen for this site. - M.S. The combination of Robin Ventura at third base and Edgardo Alfonzo at second worked quite nicely for the Mets from 1999 to 2001, but the...

My Face on a Milk Carton?

I received an email last week from a long-time reader asking me if I was going to stop doing this blog. I was a little surprised at first. I know I haven't been posting much since the season ended, but that made me look back and realize just how little...

Minaya Leaves Vegas with a Bullpen

What happens in Vegas is supposed to stay in Vegas, but Omar Minaya left there with a couple of arms that are likely to pay some dividends in Citi Field next summer. In a move that most of us expected, the Mets moved quickly in signing Francisco Rodriguez to a...

Omar's Winter Meetings Haul -- A Closer and a Putz

When Billy Wagner went down last season the Mets were unable to find another closer. Should something happen to Francisco Rodriguez [insert your favorite superstitious method of warding off evil here] they'll have to look no farther than their own bullpen for another proven, established closer. The cost was fairly...

Hot Stove Warming

With the apparent signing of Francisco Rodriguez, the Mets have made the first real noise at the Winter Meetings in Vegas. But surely, Omar is on the prowl to beef up an already interesting roster. He may not have to spend wildly to accomplish the task. A blend of mid-priced...

Winter Meetings Day Two

To the surprise of nobody, the Mets and Francisco Rodriguez are on the verge of a deal. However, still needing a bridge to K-Rod and a couple more starters, Omar's work has barely begun. There were reports that the Mets are pursuing Raul Ibanez, which still doesn't make much sense...

Winter Meetings Day One

I remember previous seasons reading complaints that Omar Minaya was impatient and too quick to overpay for the player or players he wanted. Now there is criticism about how none of the holes on this team have been filled yet. While I can't pretend to have any insight into our...

A History of the Mets at Second Base Part 6 - What Was and What Might Have Been (The Carlos Baerga era/error)

Editor's Note: This is the sixth in a series of new articles Barry will be writing on Mets second basemen for this site. - M.S. Historically, the Mets organization has not produced many major league caliber second basemen, but in the mid-'90's, it contributed no less than three. Unfortunately, the...

Pre Winter Meetings Thoughts

Sorry, folks. I had intended to get back to more frequent posting this past week, but work problems combined with a bad cold delayed my return. As we sit here in anticipation of next week's winter meetings in Las Vegas, there are no clear indications which players might be wearing...
