I think baseball players are way to sensative.

 

So what someone hit a homerun and they take their time around the bases, or some stupid unwritten rule.

 

Get over it.  They get paid big money to produce, not worry about who showed them up.

 

Grow up MLB players.

daily news suggests they go after Tulowitski and his huge contract. They suggest D'Arnaud, Gee and Montero might get it done.

 

Where do they suggest Willin Rosario ends up?  He had a hell of a season at catcher for the Rockies.

I figured Rosario was a product of Coors field. Not so says the stats.  (Although he did score twice as many runs at home)

 

Home:

66 of 225

42 Runs

10 HRs

47 RBI

 

Road

65 of 224

21 Runs

11 HRs

32 RBI

and he's 24.  Unless his defense is horrible, they won't be looking for a catcher for a while.

Young, Legares, and Choo for an outfield next year? I could live with it, especially if they also got Tulo at short.

Whew!

 

 

Met will draft 10th and have a protected pick.  We can now go sign some free agents.

 

Jason Bay and Santana come off the books.

 

Met sonly have 33 million and lots of arbitration eligible players.  Murph probably being most expensive Arb guy.  So prolly 45-50 million.  That is a lot of free money, down 40+ million.

 

I do not think the Mets tender Ike.  I think he walks.  

 

 

 

Edit to add:  

Look for the Mets to adopt the Boston Red Sox's model from last offseason, which means spending money on five or six middle-tier free agents.

I am ok with that, short term deals will be the new norm.

 

I read the Mets like one or two big free agents (Choo) but will only offer 4 years (may be a fifth but would have to be a player they loved and couldn;t let get away.

 

The Mets plan will be along the lines of the Red Sox.  Buy short term fixes, and continue to build from within.

Huh?   The way that is written it seems (i could be wrong) but you seem to think, that the Mets will have the same success as the Red Sox next year, or that is the implied idea of the Mets.

 

I am not saying that at all, the Mets are as not good as the Red Sox.  But let's remember before this past season, you did not see a good season coming, but were hopeful.

 

The Red Sox have a better base (especially bats and bullpen) to start with but the Mets do have David Wright, and Murphy was the 5th rated 2nd basemen in baseball.  Beyond that though, not much in terms of bats.  They do have lots of young pitching in the minors (lots of potential and we know about that), two guys who started both sides of the Futures game.

 

The idea is to not get straddled with big contracts after waiting years to get out from under them.

 

What did the red sox do last offseason?  Brought in players for reasonable money for a year to three years so their young talent could be introduced and not blocked by big long contracts.  That is going to be the Mets going forward.  Although they may go after Choo (but boras is obstacle) I also here they may go after Stephen Drew (Boras).

 

Please make note that two years ago I said, the Mets would not contend until 2015.  It is mentioned all over this thread.

The previously mentioned "strategy used by the Red sox"  last off season was over pay short term, see Victorino.  

 

Looks like the Giants used that same strategy on Tim Lincecum 2 years 35 million.

 

This is what I expect from the Mets going forward.

Looks like there are reports that the Rockies will be looking for a catcher... Carlos Ruiz.

 

Doesn't make sense.  Ruiz was known more for his hitting around Philly.  yeah he was good with the pitchers but his defense?  Plus he is 34, soon to be 35 (January)

 

 

Rockies pursue free-agent catcher Carlos Ruiz, mainly for defense

As a backup/teacher to Rosario.

I thought he made more money that he did last season.  He made $5 million last season, that is not that bad, especially short term (1-2 years).

 

 

In my brain I thought why bring in an offensive aging catcher for defensive purposes (who wants to get paid one last time).

Apparently each team gets $25 million more per year from TV/Internet. 

So I'm sure more than a few people are going to get overpaid.

It would be an interesting experience to wear that domepiece at either New York ballpark. I imagine it would be perceived as stealthy loyalty in Queens, and an outright diss in the Bronx. It doesn't take a genius to figure out in which ballpark fisticuffs are more likely to be an outcome.

The Mets will also unveil a commemorative logo on the left field wall and will honor Kiner, who was part of the club’s original broadcasting team in 1962 and was still doing games through last season, with a ceremony on Opening Day.

The team also announced that the Mets’ Hall of Fame and Museum at Citi Field will debut a display called “Kiner’s Korner,” named after his popular and pioneering postgame show, chronicling Kiner’s history with the Mets.

Hope for the future.

http://www.gammonsda...pring-training/

 

That’s a very good place to start with the Miami Marlins, whose Nate Eovaldi had the highest velocity of any starter in baseball last year. “The arms here are incredible,” Giancarlo Stanton said this spring. Indeed, in one intrasquad game they trotted out 11 pitchers who threw between 96 and 100 MPH.

 

Then go to the Mets. Start there with Matt Harvey, because he started the 2013 All-Star Game, and will be back next season. And Zack Wheeler, who is really good. Then Noah Syndergaard, who topped the poll at the end of this column of pitchers that general managers, scouts and managers considered potential star top-of-the-rotation pitchers.

 

.....

 

All of which leads to the poll on what young pitchers this spring caught people’s eyes as future rotation stars?

The results:

  1. Noah Syndergaard, RHP, Mets. Physical, hard, power sink. “Absolute potential star,” says one pro scouting director. “Has the power pitcher mentality.” Just wish Alex Anthopoulos hadn’t been pushed to win in 2013 and had to trade Syndergaard, Anthony DeSclafani, Justin Nicolino, Jake Marisnick and Travis d’Arnaud, not to mention Yan Gomes.
