The Mets are one of several teams showing interest in left-handed reliever Craig Breslow. Breslow had a sub-par year last season with the Red Sox with a 5.96 ERA, although through the previous eight seasons, he sported a much better 2.82 ERA. The Mets have been searching for another left-handed pitcher to join Josh Edgin in the bullpen for 2015 and Breslow may appeal as a low risk / high reward choice. .huge-it-share-buttons { border:0px solid #0FB5D6; border-radius:5px; background:#3BD8FF; ...Continue reading »

Former Mets first baseman Ike Davis has been acquired by the Athletics from the Pirates. The team designated another former Met, Andrew Brown, for assignment to make room on the roster. Not really sure how Davis fits in the Athletics‘ plan for next season. His offense still isn’t consistent and it’s not like he gets on base regularly either. As much as we like him, Ike Davis is  no Yoenis Cespedes. Hope the A’s have a back up plan. .huge-it-share-buttons { border:0px solid #0FB5D6; border-radius:5px; background:#3BD8FF; ...Continue reading »

The Mets are looking to sign or trade for a lefty reliever in the next few weeks before the Winter Meetings end, according to a NY Post source. The left-handed pitcher the team is looking at right now is a second-tier pitcher on the level of Phil Coke, Joe Beimel and Craig Breslow. The bullpen currently only features one southpaw: Josh Edgin. Joe Beimel seems like he would be a good fit for the team, coming off of a good performance last year in the Mariners bullpen: 3-1, 2.20 ERA in 50 appearances.

The Mets announced they will honor the late legendary Mets broadcaster Ralph Kiner with an Opening Day ceremony and a memorial uniform patch this season. This is a great way to honor Ralph Kiner, who had been with the team as a broadcaster for as long as the Mets have been  a team. .huge-it-share-buttons { border:0px solid #0FB5D6; border-radius:5px; background:#3BD8FF; text-align:center; } #huge-it-share-buttons-top {margin-bottom:0px;} #huge-it-share-buttons-bottom...Continue reading »

The Mets will honor the late Gary Carter this season with a “KID 8” patch on all players and coaches uniforms. Here’s a photo of the patch that the Mets posted on their Facebook page earlier today: Classy move by the team in remembrance of a classy ballplayer. Rest in peace, Kid. .huge-it-share-buttons { border:0px solid #0FB5D6; border-radius:5px; background:#3BD8FF; text-align:center; } #huge-it-share-buttons-top {margin-bottom:0px;} #huge-it-share-buttons-bottom...Continue reading »

Council, the three-brother rock band, will be appearing at Citi Field for a pre-game concert on September 27th, when the Mets take on the Cincinnati Reds. I recently had a chance to sit down for an interview with Doug, Pat, and Andy Reeves to discuss the band, their plans, and how they got the opportunity to play at Citi Field. ANTHONY CANTIELLO, METSTALK.COM: Tell us a little about yourselves… Who is Council? When and how did you guys get started and how would you describe your sound? DOUG REEVES: Council is made up of myself, my twin brother Pat, and...Continue reading »

Mets COO Jeff Wilpon and pitchers Mike Pelfrey, R.A. Dickey, Bobby Parnell, and Dillon Gee trained as firefighters at the FDNY Fire Academy training center on Randall’s Island on January 20. Talk about battling some serious heat! The Mets players and C.O.O. strapped on firefighter gear to climb up FDNY ladders, battle a blaze, and rappel down the side of a building. Check it out: And now some screenshots of the Metsies in action: Looks like a cool team-building event for several Mets players, or as my girlfriend calls it, “Really smart thing to do right...Continue reading »

In a Mets season that included an 8-game winning streak and numerous wins at home, but also K-Rod’s blown saves on the road, and whatever this mess of losses can be called in the last 2 weeks, this season has already had its share of ups and downs. Welcome to the Mets Rollercoaster Ride! Hold onto your hats, Mets fans! I don’t know about you, but this year’s ride is just starting to make me sick. Come on guys, let’s try some consistency! .huge-it-share-buttons { border:0px solid #0FB5D6; border-radius:5px; background:#3BD8FF; ...Continue reading »
