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 call up reliever Kevin McGowan

Mets call up reliever Kevin McGowan

The Mets took McGowan in the 13th round of the 2013 draft. With Neil Walker traded and officially off the Mets’ roster, the team will call up right-handed relief pitcher Kevin McGowan, per Anthony DiComo. The Mets drafted the 25-year-old in the thirteenth round of the 2013 draft, and he has spent this season pitching out of the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s’ bullpen. In 62.0 innings over 44 appearances for Vegas, McGowan has a 4.06 ERA with 8.0 strikeouts and 3.5 walks per nine innings. And despite playing in a very hitter-friendly environment, he gave up one home run per nine innings. Before...

Mets vs. Phillies Recap: One is the loneliest number

With another player traded away, the offense faded away. The Mets had been using Citizens Bank Park as their own personal playground, but that came to a screeching halt in a 3-1 loss to Aaron Nola and the Phillies. A little over an hour before game time rumors started to spread about a possible Neil Walker trade. Walker was scratched from the lineup and Jose Reyes was inserted into the two hole in his place. Reyes is not the answer going forward, so if this team wants to prepare for next season, now is the time to give Wilmer Flores or Gavin Cecchini an extended look at...
