METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is this the right plan for the New York Mets?

This has been one of the busiest offseasons we have seen in a while. The Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers, and San Diego Padres have basically all completely reconfigured their rosters. The Padres are team that is most like the Mets. They have built up a solid farm system and are now turning those prospects into major league talent through trades. Citi Field The New York Mets...

Report: Rockies and Mets kicking around Troy Tulowitzki trade

The New York Mets need a shortstop. Wilmer Flores and Ruben Tejada are nice players, but the Mets need someone who can make more of an impact at the position offensively. That doesn’t leave general manager Sandy Alderson many options. How many MLB shortstops can provide middle-of-the-order run production, while also playing excellent defense? Ian Desmond fits such criteria, but...

Troy Tulowitzki to the Mets rumors heat up again

The latest rumor has the Mets and Rockies talking Troy Tulowitzki. At times this feels like the franchise’s personal Moby Dick. Regardless, the fact that the team is even discussing this possibility is encouraging. Even though the chances of a deal happening are probably only in the single digits, it’s still something that makes me happy as a fan. If Sandy Alderson passed...

A Case For Not Trading Gee

There’s been a lot of talk about the Mets wanting to trade Dillon Gee. I understand their reasoning and on the surface it all makes sense. However, I wouldn’t be the contrarian I am if I didn’t examine the other side. Sure, the rotation looks crowded with the return of Matt Harvey. But, what if his return from elbow surgery isn’t smooth? What if Jon Niese continues to falter...

Will Sandy Alderson match Frank Cashen in talent acquisition?

One of the things we’ve talked about a lot recently is how one of the primary functions of a general manager is talent accumulation. Frank Cashen is held up as the best GM in club history and there’s little doubt he did a tremendous job in adding talent to the organization. Sandy Alderson is trying to follow a similar blueprint. How does Alderson compare to Cashen in this...

MMO Fan Shot: Should Kevin Plawecki Be Traded?

An MMO Fan Shot by Bill Tourjee The Mets #1 position player prospect in MLB’s rankings, catcher Kevin Plawecki, continues to be mentioned as a possible trade chip. But should he be made available, even if the trade returns a high-end SS or prospect? It would be safe to say that most GMs prefer to trade from positions where they have the most depth. In the Mets’ case, that would...

For the New York Mets, perceived silence is golden

Much to the dismay of most fans, the Winter Meetings came and went with no major moves made by the New York Mets. Instead, it was defined by a series of small moves that spoke volumes as to the direction that the team and GM Sandy Alderson wants to go in. The perception of failure to pull the trigger on a major trade that would land a shortsstop lends to the theory that the team...

Would Rather Have Germen Over Mayberry

The Mets made the signing of right-handed hitter John Mayberry Jr., official today and to make room on the 40-man roster they designated for assignment reliever Gonzalez Germen. Personally, as the San Francisco Giants proved three times over the past five years, bullpen depth is critical for a team’s success, so I would rather have had them keep Germen. To me, a 27-year-old hard...
