not sure if this contradicts an earlier report

But Burkhardt was just on the SNY pregame saying that much of how the Mets handle Mejia will come down to how they do in their next few games. Not directly quoting here, but essentially, "If the Mets aren't competitive in the next few games and Mejia only comes in as a mop up reliever, then he will probably be sent down and be stretched out as a starter. If they do well, he will probably stay as the 8th inning man. According to Burkhardt, others in the organization want him stretched out as a starter now, but Jerry is determined to keep him on the majors this year." Ojeda and Carter are discussing this now as well, with Ojeda firmly behind sending Mejia down to be a starter.

It has begun...

Does anybody else like Willie Randolph more now than they like Jerry Manuel? I remember being thrilled that Willie was fired, but almost instantly disliked Manuel due to his obnoxious use of the bullpen and dysfunctional lineups. His relationships with guys like Stokes, Church, and Castro last year bothered me, and after seeing this opening day lineup and his roster input this spring training, I can unequivocally say that I despise Jerry far more than I ever could've disliked Willie. that felt good.

Manuel to Start Tejada at Short?

59
  1. Mets GM Omar Minaya suggested Thursday that 20-year-old Ruben Tejada could open the 2010 season as the Mets' starting shortstop. The Panama native hit .289 with five homers and 46 RBI in 488 at-bats with Double-A Binghamton last season and told the New York Daily News that he won't be overwhelmed by the bright lights of the big leagues. "It's baseball," Tejada said. "Everywhere I play the game normal. I'm ready for everything." Alex Cora is another option to fill in for injured starter Jose Reyes, but Mets manager Jerry Manuel seems keen on giving the rookie a shot.

Carlos Beltran "Furious" with Mets

At least we're still probably on Alex Cora's good side...

Nieve Mets 5th Starter (So far)

22

Mets GM Omar Minaya told Newsday's Ken Davidoff Tuesday that Fernando Nieve is "probably fifth on the Mets' starting rotation depth chart." Nieve, 27, had a 2.95 ERA in eight appearances (seven starts) last season, but peel back the curtain a bit and you'll find an ugly 1.50 WHIP and a 23/19 K/BB ratio. He may struggle in the early going if awarded the gig. Keep in mind the Mets are still targeting guys like Ben Sheets and John Smoltz. -via twitter by way of Rotoworld

Minaya Denies Okaying Beltran's Surgery

44
  1. "Mets general manager Omar Minaya told Newsday on Friday morning that he did not approve Carlos Beltran's recent knee procedure. "Carlos did speak to me before surgery and we had a good conversation," Minaya said in a telephone interview. "It was one of those things as far as he was telling me what the second opinion was and all... I didn't give an OK." And the public relations nightmare continues. It's incredible, and borderline upsetting, that the Mets have chosen to deal with this issue so publicly. Beltran is expected to miss at least the first month of the 2010 season."

Darkhorse Beltran Replacement?

  1. Just read that to make room for Adam Laroche, the Diamondbacks are seriously considering dropping Eric Byrnes from their 40 man roster. I know he's played a good deal of center in the past (no idea how good he was pre-injury though). What would you guys think of the Mets throwing a league minimum contract his way?

Mets Should Trade for Miguel Cabrera

48
  1. I brought this up before, and I'm sticking with it again. Do you guys think a package of Ike Davis, Wilmer Flores, Dan Murphy & one other decent prospect would get it done for Cabrea? At his best, Davis would probably never come close to Cabrera with the bat, and he's still just 26-27. *********EDIT!!!***********

Mets to sign Molina in the next 48-72 hours

55

"A source told Tim Kurkjian of ESPN.com that the Mets could possibly sign free agent catcher Bengie Molina in "the next 48 to 72 hours." It's rare that a free agent signing is a considered a foregone conclusion, but this is almost destined to get done eventually. The Mets have held firm on one year, while the 35-year-old Molina has insisted upon a three-year contract. It's very possible that they will meet in the middle."

Aroldis Chapman -- five yr $25 million contract with the Reds. The Cuban left-hander drew bids this winter from baseball's biggest spenders and several surprise teams, but the Reds stepped forward and grabbed him with an overwhelming offer. Perhaps Cincinnati management finally came to the realization that they must establish a strong pitching staff in order to win ball games in the cozy confines of Great American Ballpark. Chapman's fastball has been clocked in the triple-digits but he has no major league experience and his first year in the show may be an adventure." :( for a few minutes there i thought might've been surprised. Here's to piniero for two years, 15 mil.

Mets Close to Deal with R.A. Dickey

13

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press the New York Mets are nearing agreement on a minor league contract with knuckleballer R.A. Dickey. The person spoke on condition of anonymity Tuesday because the deal was not yet complete. The 35-year-old right-hander made 14 starts for Seattle in 2008 but was primarily a reliever for Minnesota last season, when he went 1-1 with a 4.62 ERA in one start and 34 relief appearances.

"FOXSports.com's Ken Rosenthal reports that the Mariners have agreed to trade Brandon Morrow to Toronto for RHP Brandon League and a prospect. Let's hope for the Mariners' sake that this other "prospect" is highly talented. League, 26, is a nice relief pitcher but is destined for a career as a setup man or middle reliever. He had a 4.58 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 76/21 K/BB in 74 2/3 innings this past season for Toronto. Morrow, 25, boasts a high-powered fastball and strong potential as a future No. 2 or No. 3 starter."

I'm gonna make this brief since it will probably get a violent reaction here. 1. Trade Beltran/Castillo to the Yanks for Cano (not equivalent talent, but a salary dump) 2. Sign Holiday. 3. Trade some good prospects to the Nats for Nyjer Morgan. This obviously wasn't my first choice, I'd have liked to gotten in on Granderson for CF or maybe plugged Figgins in at 2B instead if I had known they would have come so relatively cheap. But me and some friends were kickin this around last night and it saves money and I think makes the team better. It makes the Yankees pretty godlike, but they'd have to make it to the world series again before that becomes any of our concern. This deal makes the Mets younger at 2B, CF, and LF, cuts payroll overall from any other potential options, and in my opinion makes the team better overall than simply signing Jason Bay.

Catcher Swap Complete -- Phillies sign Schneider According to SI.com's Jon Heyman, the Phillies have agreed to terms with free agent catcher Brian Schneider. Schneider will serve as backup to Carlos Ruiz in Philadelphia. The 33-year-old hit .218/.292/.335 with three homers and 24 RBI over 194 plate appearances in 2009. He is a .251/.323/.374 career hitter.

Trading for Miguel Cabrera --- Worth it? "According to Lynn Henning of the Detroit News, Miguel Cabrera might be as available as any other Tigers player this winter. The Tigers need to cut payroll and are shopping all of their superstars this offseason. Cabrera is by far the most talented played in Detroit, but he'll also command the largest (and most talented) chunk of prospects. The 26-year-old hit .324/.396/.547 in 2009 with 34 homers, 34 doubles and 103 RBI. He finished fourth in this year's American League MVP voting." I personally hate the guy, but he's a filthy baseball player, ridiculously young, very talented.

Hope this isn't true.. "Bill Madden of the New York Daily News says the Mets will have about $20 million to spend this offseason. Madden says the Mets are certain to reduce their $147 million payroll and should be counted out of the Lackey, Holliday and Bay sweepstakes. Madden goes on to say that second-tier free agents should be their focus with priorities being left-field and two starting pitchers, naming Jason Marquis specifically."

Anybody know any good websites to find old video footage of games from years past? Specifically I'm trying to find some Mets videos from 1999-2000, but youtube is bust, and the MLB.com has the worst search function I've ever seen. I type in "Todd Pratt NLDS" and I get Hanley Ramirez post game interviews. Even old Gary Cohen radio calls (Grand Slam Single) would be great. Thanks
