Chris Coste is poised to wreak havoc in Citi Field for the Mets

According to multiple reports, The New York Metropolitans have signed free-agent catcher Chris Coste.  Coste hit .224 in 88 games with the Phillies and Astros last season, during which he played 15 games at first base. Andy Martino of the Philadelphia Inquirer is also reporting that former Mets catcher Brian Schneider has signed a two-year, $3 million deal with the Phillies. In two seasons with the Mets, Schneider appeared in just 169 games and hit  .244 with 12 home runs and 62 RBIs, as he was plagued by various leg and back injuries right from the start in 2008.

Mets GM Omar Minaya will make plenty of phone calls this off-season

This article is from Ken Davidoff’s piece in the Nov. 25 edition of Newsday

The Yankees have been so deliberate this offseason that their own free agent, Johnny Damon – whom the Yankees want back – expressed frustration Tuesday that he hasn’t heard yet from Brian Cashman.

Consider the Mets, then, to be the anti-Yankees. If you’re a free agent and you haven’t heard from the Mets, you might want to make sure your cell-phone service (or that of your agent) hasn’t been canceled.

With needs for a slugging outfielder, a first baseman, a catcher and a starting pitcher, “We’re keeping all of our avenues open,” a team official said Tuesday.

Hence the expressions of interest in first basemen such as Russell Branyan and Nick Johnson, not to mention the Mets’ own free agent Carlos Delgado. And in starting pitchers such as Joel Piñeiro, Jason Marquis and Randy Wolf, in addition to Ben Sheets, who missed all of the 2009 season rehabilitating from right elbow surgery and therefore won’t be able to demand a great amount of money.

Happy Feet Sanchez backpedaling

November 23, 2009

In today’s Newsday, Wallace Matthews remarks that Sanchez is regressing instead of progressing.  The Sanchise is coming off another five turnover game, and in the article Matthews states:

“Ten games into his pro career, the game is not slowing down for him, it is speeding up. Never did he look more like an overmatched rookie than on his fourth and final interception – but not turnover – of the day, when under pressure from three Patriots defenders, he blindly flipped the ball downfield like a man hoping to persuade a pack of hungry pit bulls to play “go fetch.”

November 6, 2009



A case even unsolved mysteries couldn't crack.....



Alan Hahn of Newsday is reporting via his Twitter account that Eddy Curry will be evaluated by the Knicks on Sunday and is set to resume practicing by Tuesday. Rumor has it that he is under 310 pounds, there is also speculation that Curry is aware the Knicks are trying to trade him and that he’s not eager to assist the team.
