Mets' Outfield Options for 2013

At this moment, it appears Scott Hairston is the best outfielder in the Mets' system. He is hitting .261/.301/.513 with an fWAR of 1.1 in 239 PA. His career splits are .246/.303/.446 and he is 32...

What about Oswalt?

If the Mets continue to play competitive baseball, should they (can they) take a look at Oswalt? He has a career record of 159-93, 3.21 ERA, 3.35 FIP, 3.58 xFIP, 1.19 WHIP and turns 35 in August. ...

Was Beltran worth it?

A popular opinion seems to be that Reyes won't be able to stay healthy and therefore won't be worth a 6-year $120mil contract.  Let's compare Carlos Beltran's 7-year contract with Reyes' last 7...

Mets 2012 Outfield

Everything I've read seems to point to an outfield of Bay, Pagan and Duda from left to right for 2012.  So going from right to left, here is what I see: Obviously Duda has yet to prove he can play...

Free Agent Pitching

Here are the free agent pitchers: Bannister (30) - 0.0 WAR in '10, 2.9 in '09.  Career FIP is 4.77, xFIP is 4.86.  Probably not worth a minor league offer. Bedard (32) - did not pitch in '10, 81...
