METS RUMORS & GOSSIP

New York Mets Hire Kevin Long As New Hitting Coach

Unlike most people who get fired in the big Apple, Kevin Long has found work quickly and does not have to leave the state of New York as the Mets announced on Thursday that they have hired the former Yankees hitting coach, a two weeks after he was let go. Long, 47, held the position of New York Yankees hitting coach since 2007 and had seen considerable success during his tenure...

New Hitting Coach Long Can Help This Suggested Outfield

Let’s operate under the assumption, which isn’t hard to do, the New York Mets won’t acquire the long-ball hitting left fielder they covet. Given that, the Mets’ outfield – from left to right – should be Curtis Granderson, Juan Lagares and Matt den Dekker. Lagares is a finalist for the NL Gold Glove in center field, along with Billy Hamilton and Denard Span. The award...

Mets360 MLB Project: Being Billy Beane

When the MLB Project was being discussed at Mets360, I agreed to do so immediately. The chance to actually GM a team was something that couldn’t be passed up. When I was assigned the Oakland Athletics as my franchise, I found that kind of serendipitous. As a lifelong Mets and Baseball fan, I’m well aware of Billy Beane’s past and present connections with the Mets and his status...

Is Rafael Montero The One The Mets Trade?

The Mets are highly reluctant to trade any of their young pitchers this winter, despite an urgent need to upgrade the offense, writes Andy Martino of the Daily News. However it’s not impossible to imagine Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard, Jacob deGrom and to some extent Rafael Montero playing for different teams next year, he says. This offseason will be filled with lots of Mets...

Mets Rumors: New York likes Michael Cuddyer

The Mets have serious interest in free-agent-to-be Michael Cuddyer, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News. The 35-year-old right fielder, who also played first base, hit .332/.376/.579 (OPS+ 149) with ten homers in 49 games, losing time to a fractured shoulder and two hamstring injuries.#483866115 / gettyimages.comThe Mets are looking for offense and reluctant to...

Why Mets Can’t Attract Quality Free Agents

The Mets’ inability to hire a hitting coach illustrates indecision, which is one of several reasons why marquee free agents won’t come here. Among the others: New York: The city can be daunting for someone who only experienced it in a hotel room and stadium. It is very expensive to live here, crowded and there’s the media crush. The Yankees: Considering the above factors, if...

New York Mets: Michael Cuddyer on the radar

News has come out today that the New York Mets may already be on their way to filling one of the holes in their lineup: corner outfielder. It’s been reported by sources close to the team including both WFAN radio and SNY that the Mets will pursue Michael Cuddyer. Admittedly, there’s another Rockies outfielder that many hoped the Mets would show interest in, but Cuddyer could...

The Differences Between The Giants And Mets

I hope Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins took notes in Game 1, because the Giants have the blueprint the Mets should be following. So, in comparing the wild-card Giants to the Mets, there’s more than just a 3,000-mile difference: Solid starting pitching: Madison Bumgarner was lights out, pitching quickly, and with command and composure. This is what the Mets expect from Matt Harvey...

Handicapping Trade Value and Odds Of Mets Pitchers

To get something, you have to give something, but what the New York Mets don’t want to give up is their young pitching.  Understandable, but how long can they hold out? The Mets say they won’t deal Matt Harvey, but remember there is no such thing as an untouchable. What if some team, in the words of Don Corleone, make them “an offer they can’t refuse.’’ Let’s take...

Mets360 2014 Projection Review: Dillon Gee

Our projection review series continues with one of the larger enigmas of the 2014 Mets. Dillon Gee was coming off a surprisingly productive 2013. He logged a career-best 199 innings pitched, with above average rate stats, his 1.218 WHIP in particular. All signs pointed to a continuation of that trend in 2014, so much so that – in the face of a major injury to Matt Harvey, and...

Will Sandy Alderson make any moves?

In the past, Sandy Alderson has not made too many big splash moves to help the major league team. Most of the trades so far have involved selling off pieces of the Mets for prospects, which has worked out for the Mets as they are coming up through the system and making an impact on the big league club. The only big free agent contract he has handed out was to Curtis Granderson...
