Sandy Alderson says that the Mets were over budget before shedding salary in trades

In case you hadn’t realized by now that it’s always about the money. The Mets have been criticized by fans and the media during their recent dealings for refusing to pay off the salaries of the players they have sent to other teams. The theory goes that if the Mets were less cheap and paid the players that they agreed to pay anyway, that they would get better prospects back in return. So far this summer, the team has traded away Lucas Duda, Jay Bruce, Addison Reed, and Neil Walker without receiving what anyone would consider an exciting prospect. In his Wednesday press conference,...

Mets injury update: Jeurys Familia to begin rehab assignment

Mets injury update: Jeurys Familia to begin rehab assignment

The reliever will pitch in the Gulf Coast League on Tuesday. After being sidelined since May following surgery to address a blood clot in his right shoulder, Jeurys Familia will pitch his first rehab game on Tuesday for the Gulf Coast League Mets. As previously reported, Familia began a throwing program in July, with an initial eye towards an August 1 return date. While Familia could return to the team before the end of the season, in his absence, the closer’s role was filled first by Addison Reed and then by surprise acquisition AJ Ramos. While Ramos has a 6.00 ERA in his brief Mets...

Mets reportedly close to trading Neil Walker to Brewers

Mets reportedly close to trading Neil Walker to Brewers

Almost dealt at the July 31 deadline, Walker may really be on the move this time. The Mets’ fire sale has apparently continued with Neil Walker reportedly heading to the Brewers. Walker joins Lucas Duda, Jay Bruce, and Addison Reed as Mets who have been traded these past few weeks. The deal is not yet official and it’s not yet clear what the Mets will get in return from Milwaukee, but it’s possible the Mets will send some money to offset Walker’s remaining salary for 2017. Walker was originally in tonight’s lineup but has been replaced by Jose Reyes. Walker could have been on the...

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

Red Sox 4, Yankees 5: Addison Reed implodes, Sox snap streak

That was crushing. What an awful way to snap an eight-game winning streak. The Red Sox got an outstanding performance from Eduardo Rodriguez tonight, but Addison Reed and Joe Kelly combined to implode and give the Yankees a win. It’s a little unfair to weigh their contributions equally as Reed was clearly more responsible, but the eighth inning in which they pitched was an all-around horrible frame. As for the offense, they had a few big swings but it was a frustrating night for much of the game. They left some chances with runners in scoring position and then couldn’t come through in...

Mets, Yankees nearly made Neil Walker trade

Mets, Yankees nearly made Neil Walker trade

The Yankees called off the deal because of medicals. The Mets and Yankees nearly made a trade at the non-waiver trade deadline that would have sent second baseman Neil Walker from Queens to The Bronx, but the Yankees called the deal off because of medicals. Mike Puma of the Post says the Mets believed their crosstown rivals used medicals as a back-out tactic after they completed a trade for starting pitcher Sonny Gray. With a disappointing record on the season, the Mets have made a few trades. They sent Addison Reed to the Red Sox for three minor league relief pitchers, Lucas Duda to the...

Mets trade rumors: Jay Bruce clears waivers, no-trade list includes Yankees, Diamondbacks, Rays

Bruce is not likely to block a trade to a contender, though. Jay Bruce‘s contract includes a no-trade list that consists of the following teams, according to Ken Rosenthal: the Yankees, Phillies, Marlins, Twins, Diamondbacks, Rays, and Jays. Rosenthal also points out—as James Wagner of the Times has—that Bruce would be very likely to approve a trade to a contender. Of the teams on his no-trade list, only the Yankees, Diamondbacks, and Rays fall into that category. While the Mets dealt Lucas Duda and Addison Reed away before the non-waiver trade deadline, they weren’t able to make...

Daily Red Sox Links: Rafael Devers, Addison Reed, Andrew Benintendi

Today we look at Rafael Devers’ hot start to his career, Addison Reed is excited about his change of scenery and a year of Andrew Benintendi is examined. Rafael Devers isn’t playing like your garden variety rookie. (Alex Speier; Boston Globe) Maybe that’s why he is one of the youngest players in team history to go 4-for-4 in a game. (Bleacher Report) Addison Reed is stoked to be back chasing a playoff berth and more. (Julian Benbow; Boston Globe) The Red Sox didn’t go after any big bats at the trade deadline, meaning the offense has to play up to its absolute potential for this team...
