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

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 Player Performance Meter: Position players, August 7-13

A quick review of how the Mets’ position players fared over the past week All things considered, the Mets just had a pretty decent week of baseball. They split one of those silly two-game series against the Texas Rangers and beat the Phillies three out or four times. Beating the Phillies all four times is always preferable, especially when they are as bad as they are right now, but even the best teams occasionally lose to the worst. And no, I am not saying that the Mets are one of the best. Anyway, here’s how the Mets’ position players did over the past week. Jay Bruce...

The relative values of Jay Bruce and Yoenis Cespedes

Since the middle of the 2015 season, we’ve seen a spike in home run production. The increase has been so drastic that this past offseason we saw general managers essentially being indifferent to acquiring power. The prevailing thought has been…Read more →

New York Mets send mixed messages with Jay Bruce trade

Ryan is a former 30th round pick, and […] The post New York Mets send mixed messages with Jay Bruce trade appeared first on OutsidePitchMLB.

Newcomer Jay Bruce is hitting and fitting in well with the Cleveland Indians

When the Reds traded Jay Bruce to the Mets at the non-waiver trading deadline in 2016, he stopped hitting for a month. It's still early, but this year Bruce has made a smoother transition from the Mets to the Indians.

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...

Mets close to trading Neil Walker to Brewers

Walker is the latest veteran to be dealt by the Mets, joining Lucas Duda and Jay Bruce. The Mets are close to trading second baseman Neil Walker to the Brewers, according to FOX’s Ken Rosenthal. The return to New York isn’t yet known. If the deal is finalized, Walker will be the fourth Mets veteran shipped out of town in the last two months.

Milwaukee has been on the lookout for second base help since last month, prioritizing...
