For some reason, I have centerfielders on my mind
All’s quiet in Flushing and according to Adam Rubin, it will stay quiet until the team meets in Port St. Lonsome. Seems the Mets are close to reaching their budget ceiling of $90Mil
The only thing that has me thinking the signing of Yu Darvish is a good move is that Nolan Ryan is running the Rangers and if he didn’t think Darvish was worth it, the Rangers would never have bid over $50 mil to obtain his rights. Imagine having $50 mil to throw around just for a bid on a player? SIGH! I miss those big market days
Happy Birthday to David Wright who is 29 years old today and still a Met. Rumor is he wanted a strawberry shortcake birthday cake but got a cherry filled cake instead #BlameBeltran
Mets Police has his released his Airing of Grievances today after giving out his awards for 2011 (The Mazzilli’s)
Frank Fransisco is officially a Mets after passing his physical two weeks after agreeing to a deal. The hold up was the club was trying to scrape together the co-pay.
The Arizona Diamondbacks signed Jason Kubel to a 2yr/$15 mil contract yesterday. This relegates Gerardo Parra, the 2011 Gold Glove winner, to fourth outfielder status. If I’m the GM of the Mets ( I just play a GM here on the internet) I am on the phone right now with Kevin Towers trying to find a way get Parra to the Mets to play center field.
Finally Happy Hanukkah to all those who celebrate the holiday
