Mets in play for another top pitcher in case Jacob deGrom bolts

Mets in play for another top pitcher in case Jacob deGrom bolts

In the Mets’ own best scenario, they bring back Jacob deGrom. But if he doesn't return, they would like to land Carlo Rodon or Justin Verlander.

Mychal Givens was snake bit from the start

Mychal Givens was snake bit from the start

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The relief pitcher was the wrong player at the wrong time for the Mets. Going into the 2022 Trade Deadline, the Mets needed a left-handed relief pitcher. Joely Rodriguez had been surprisingly effective for the Mets, but for a team making a playoff push, they really needed to have a better left-handed option out of the bullpen. Instead of trading for a lefty, the Mets acquired Mychal Givens from the Cubs at the deadline in a move that left most fans and commentators scratching their heads. Sure, Gyvens played under Buck Showalter in Baltimore. And...

Who should the Mets target this offseason?

Who should the Mets target this offseason?

Baseball’s offseason is here, which means rumors are flying. Few teams have more questions — and perhaps opportunities (thanks, Steve Cohen) — than the Mets, who need firepower at the plate and on the mound. Will Jacob deGrom return to the rotation? Could he be replaced or even joined by Justin Verlander? If Brandon Nimmo...

Let’s find the Mets relief pitchers, Part 4

Let’s find the Mets relief pitchers, Part 4

Erasmo Ramírez | Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ Having left off with a former Mets prospect, we continue with the list of free agent relievers. The offseason hasn’t quite reached the winter meetings phase just yet, but the Mets are in need of pitchers for their bullpen in 2023 and beyond. We’ve been running down the list of free agent relievers by a relatively simple metric: their 2022 fWAR. That’s far from a perfect way of identifying who will be the best pitchers moving forward, but it works just fine for this process. Check out the first, second, and third parts of...

Meet the Mets Eric Chavez has been promoted to bench coach amid several changes for New York, including Jeremy Barnes taking over for Chavez’s vacated position. With the change, manager Buck Showalter now has a new direct mentee. The Mets promoted Barnes amid growing interest from other teams potentially signing their assistant hitting coach. The Rangers ‘seem more confident’ in landing Carlos Rodón than Jacob deGrom, which could mean good news...

Adam Ottavino was very good for the Mets in 2022

Adam Ottavino was very good for the Mets in 2022

Photo by Rob Tringali/MLB Photos via Eight wines was the Mets’ second best reliever and had a near-career year. Right-handed veteran relief pitcher Adam Ottavino signed a one-year, $4 million contract with the Mets last offseason, and established himself as a key piece of an often shaky bullpen. Ottavino gave up earned runs in 11 of his 66 appearances for the Mets, and only twice gave up multiple runs in an outing. Both of those came relatively early in the season against the Phillies and the Braves, where Ottavino surrendered three earned runs in Met losses. After...

Let’s find the Mets relief pitchers, Part 3

Photo by David Berding/ We pick up where we left off on the list of free agent relievers. With baseball’s winter meetings approaching, the Mets still need to bring in some relievers if they intend to contend in 2023. If this is the first time you’re seeing this series, read the first and second parts of it for the full background. Having left off with David Phelps, we resume the series with: David Robertson: Although he was linked to the Mets in trade rumors ahead of the 2022 deadline, Robertson wound up getting traded from the Cubs to the Phillies this year. In his...

Sure there would be some downsides I guess, but consider how neat it would be. Around the National League East The Marlins have hired Brant Brown, one of the Dodgers’ two hitting coaches, to be their new hitting coach. Tyler Matzek wasn’t bad for the Braves in 2022, but he wasn’t quite the guy who dragged them through the playoffs in their championship year. Around Major League Baseball August 2019...

Meet the Mets “But if deGrom leaves, I’m of the opinion that the Mets need another ace to replace him. And I think it would be an incredibly easy call to target Verlander over Rodón,” writes Danny Abriano of SNY. A reunion with Seth Lugo is seen as “less likely” as one with Adam Ottavino, according to reports. Around the National League East The Phillies, Mariners, and Yankees discussed a potential three-team trade prior to the August 2 trading deadline that...
