METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Did the New York Mets improve enough to compete?

The New York Mets finished 79-83 in 2014. It was the year every Mets fan heard and thought would be the year they make it back to the playoffs. An injury to their best player, set them back a year as Matt Harvey missed the whole season after under going Tommy John Surgery at the end of the 2013 season. Now, there are no more excuses for Sandy Alderson or Terry Collins. This is the...

Projecting Mets’ Opening Day Roster

As much as they are trying to trade Dillon Gee, realistically I believe the Mets are done for the winter and will hibernate until spring training. They might pull something off with Gee, but I doubt he will bring back much substance. Whether it is Gee, Bartolo Colon or Jon Niese, they aren’t likely to make a worthwhile deal until the trade deadline. There are too many free agents...

Terry Collins told the Post that there is a possibility the Mets hold out Matt Harvey during the team’s first road trip as a way to conserve innings. It is a long way down the road, but if the Mets do decide to go this route then the question becomes who starts Opening Day when the New York Mets start the season against the Washington Nationals? Here are the options along with...

Trade Of Gee Won’t Happen Soon

Speaking today at the Mets’ holiday party, GM Sandy Alderson said not to look for anything involving Dillon Gee soon. “I’d say activity will pick up significantly in January across the board,’’ Alderson said. “That’s probably the likely time frame for us as well.’’ Given that, don’t be surprised if he’s with the team in Port St. Lucie. I wouldn’t even be shocked...

Why Wilmer Flores’ defense will be fine in 2015

Many fans are clamoring for the Mets to improve at shortstop before going into the season . Collins said that Ruben Tejada is still a possibility to start at short in 2015, even though he has been given many chances and profiles nicely as a backup middle infielder. For most other options, the Mets would have to give up a significant amount, Troy Tulowitzki, or trade for a player...

Are the New York Mets finished making moves this offseason?

Short answer: no, or at least I hope not. The New York Mets made one major splash this offseason, signing free agent outfielder Michael Cuddyer to a two-year $21 million dollar deal. The team then followed up by signing OF/1B John Mayberry Jr. to a one-year deal to serve as a right-handed bat off the bench. Now, there are two potential moves left for the Mets to make.
