The Mets Spring Training Report: Volume 3

March 16, 2010

The Big Apple will not phase Jason Bay

Jason Bay arrived this spring as cool as he entered Boston in 2008.  He immediately befriended David Wright, Alex Cora and Jeff Francoeur, and clearly was not overwhelmed by the abundance of reporters and cameras. 

“He’s coming into another situation — we didn’t have a great year last year, everybody knows with the injuries and all that stuff,’’ said Cora. “He comes here and you see him walking around with his coffee, it seems like he’s been here for five, six years, and that’s great for us. That’s refreshing for us.’’

Few doubted whether Bay could adapt to New York because he did such a great job in Boston replacing Manny Ramirez.  However, with the injury to Beltran, and the mysterious aura surrounding Jose Reyes, Jason Bay’s role just got larger, and a fast start from him will go a long way in erasing the dark cloud engulfing the Mets organization.   Read the rest of this entry ?

March 3, 2010

The Metropolitans opened spring training this week, engulfed in cloud of pessimism created by their bruised and battered fan base.  Despite a riveting 4-2 victory over the Braves  in the Grapefruit League opener yesterday, “The Amazings” enter 2010 with their lowest public expectations since the 2004 season.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Carlos Delgado can’t be a Met next season

November 18, 2009

 

According to Ben Shipgel of the NY Times, Mets GM Omar Minaya will fly to Puerto Rico to scout free agent 1st baseman Carlos Delgado in winter ball.  Delgado has been a productive Met, racking up 104 HR’s and 339 RBI’s, while batting .272 in 338 games for the Metropolitans.  Carlos has been one of my favorite Met players over the last four years, but it is time to part ways with the future hall-of-famer.

To Met or not to Met… that is the Question

November 6, 2009

Mets Logo

No, I’m not a bitter Met fan and no, I don’t hate the Yankees. I’m just making sure that I speak for the people and that ALL New York teams are represented equally on this site except for obviously the New Jersey Nets. Yes, I do hate the Nets. My bad NJ we just got some bad blood between us that I’m not going to get into.

So Met fans, its been a long and frustrating time for us since we last appeared in the 2006 NLCS. It seemed so long ago when we thought  that we finally righted our ship had the pieces in place and were knocking on the door of a possible dare I say;World Series Championship. Well, things don’t always go to seem as planned. We were knocked out of  2 consecutive NL east title races and were drained by injuries or Bernie Madoff this past season. Whichever makes you go to sleep at night.

What do we have to look forward to next season? The current NL east champs will be back with their core of Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Cole Hamels, Jayson Werth, Raul Ibanez, Ryan Howard and Shane Victorino. While the Mets have Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Johan Santana, Frankie Rodriguez, and Jose Reyes returning. It’s been a battle with the Phillies since I can remember and by the way things turned out so far, they’ve got 1 if not 2 legs up on us.

The Mets and the front office have a lot to worry about this winter. Omar Minaya is more than likely hanging on to his job by the skin of his teeth and he has a lot of holes to fill with this current Met team. Will the Wilpons be as patient this season if Omar fails to bring any starting pitching, bullpen help, corner outfielders and a 1st baseman? Or did this Ponzi scheme really take a toll on the billionaires and they are thinking about selling the team?

Forget the Wilpons, how about the fans? The Mets currently own the 2nd largest payroll in all of Major League Baseball at $149,373,987. The team with the largest payroll just brought home a championship on Wednesday. Mets fans have suffered and endured countless injuries and a team that seems to not have what it takes to get the job done. With this economy the Mets will not be able to pick players off from free agency by luring them to New York with the big bucks. They are going to have to demonstrate that they have a team in place that will be competitive and will still be playing baseball in the brisk evenings of October.

Stay tuned Met fans this winter is sure going to be interesting.
