Omar and Out

The Omar Minaya era is over, and a post-mortem at this late date seems like piling on.  No matter -- this is interesting enough to warrant a share, I hope. Minaya was the Mets GM for six seasons,...

This is RA Dickey and his son, Eli. Really.

Lucas Duda's 8th Inning Sac Bunt? +.013 WPA

That doesn't take into consideration that he's not very good versus lefties or that he is slow of foot.

Jose, Jeter, Nomar, and the Rest

Earlier today, I posted a FanShot, comparing Jose Reyes' FanGraphs WAR Graph (by age) to that of Derek Jeter and Nomar Garciaparra.  Here it is, again, (embiggen here): via www.fangraphs.com   ...

Fred Wilpon, Financial Genius

There's an old, apocryphal tale of an advertisement -- as I heard it, in the New York Times classified: "Cadillac For Sale, $1. Cash Only. Just Show Up, 1234 Main Street, Between 10 and 2." A man...

McCourt, Madoff, Wilpon, Selig. We're Going Bananas.

This is fiction.  FICTION.  I don't think the conspiracy theory espoused below is true, even remotely.  To be perfectly clear: THIS IS FICTION AND I AM NOT SUGGESTING, EVEN IN THE SLIGHTEST,...

Wait, there's a market for Luis Hernandez??

Last year's regime: Sign Alex Cora! This year's regime: Trade away Alex Cora Part 2! I like this year's regime more.

I'll post the awesome results here, even if we don't push them all live on TBDSSE.

The Victim of Steroids, Hall of Fame Edition

A tale of two players. The first, we're certain, used PEDs.  The second, almost certainly, did not.  One is likely to make the Hall; the other, not so much.  Their stories, after the jump.

I Want To Trade Carlos Beltran Now, Not Three Quarters From Now

It saddens me to say this, but it’s true:  I hope the Mets trade Carlos Beltran this off-season.  Not June or July, but now. Not for nothing, of course – I’d want a package equivalent to A...

An Idea for K-Vest Avoidance

(Link goes to Cot's Contracts.) Apparently, K-Rod has a limited no-trade clause, allowing him to block trades to 10 teams. Well, let's say on July 31, he has 42 games finished, much like he did this past year. Could we trade him, the rest of his salary (roughly $3.5M) and his buyout (another $3.5M) to a contending team in need of a set-up man? The other team would get an eiite set-up man with no risk of having that option vest; we'd be free of a $17.5M commitment.

I see 2011 as an opportunity.  An opportunity for 2012. The organizational expectations are low and the fan base is on board with that.  We’ll also have a lot of financial flexibility next...
