What Would Have To Happen For Mets To Get Tulo

Bloggers and sports columnists have been all over the possible Troy Tulowitzki to the New York Mets story. Where it stands is that many say, “it’s definitely not happening” and others say, “it’s unlikely, maybe a 5-10% chance.” So the odds are pretty slim that something like this will go down. I thought I’d come at the question based on how far apart the two sides...

Projecting The Mets Opening Day Roster

With the Mets offseason essentially over, here’s my first stab at our projected Opening Day Roster. Starting Rotation Matt Harvey – The Mets ace will start the home opener. Jacob deGrom – Look for Act II to be just as special. Jon Niese – No way Mets go with five righties in rotation. Zack Wheeler – Must reduce pitch counts, but young and improving. Bartolo Colon ...

What is Dillon Gee’s trade value?

In an age in baseball where there is a glut of pitching, in an offseason where there is plenty of front-line talent available, and with all the assets the New York Mets have the ability to move, it seems Dillon Gee is the one they are shopping around the most aggressively. Gee is a fine back-end of the rotation starter, but in the end he is just that – a back-end starter.  Number...

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...

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...

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...

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...
