Tough day for the Mets — both of their split squads fell to their opponent, preventing the Mets from accomplishing a winning streak.
Mets win two in a row in Florida. If they win one more, that’s called a “winning streak.”
The Mets get blown out again, but no worries — it’s still early in the spring training season and these games don’t count, anyway.
Game two of the Mets’ preseason resulted in a 9-1 loss to the Miami Marlins. But these games don’t count, so who cares? Instead, let’s discuss what we saw in regard to individual ballplayers.
Here at MetsToday we focus on the process as much as the result during the regular season. In spring training, it’s ALL about the process. Let’s take a quick look at what was seen in the Mets’ first televised spring training game.
On the first day of spring training, Chris Young let the world know where the Mets stood in terms of their outfield — as quoted by Adam Rubin of ESPN-NY: “I think we can be one of the best in baseball in the outfield,” the ex-Diamondback said. “You’re talking about guys with a lot of […]
Breaking news: the New York Mets have signed lefthanded pitcher Dana Eveland.
The Philadelphia Phillies signed starter A.J. Burnett to a one-year, $16M contract (that includes an option for a second year). In response, the Mets signed Jose Valverde to a minor-league deal that includes an invitation to spring training. Which deal will turn out better?

I always wanted to see my name in headlines …
The Kansas City Royals recently re-signed former Met Bruce Chen to a one-year, $3M contract that includes an option for 2015. To make room on the 40-man roster for Chen, KC designated Emilio Bonifacio for assignment. Will the Mets make a play for the speedy utlityman?
Despite the fact the Mets already have a glut of first basemen, they signed another one: Matt Clark. What do you mean, you never heard of Matt Clark? The strapping, lefthanded-hitting slugger posted a career .853 OPS in five minor-league seasons, highlighted by a 28-HR, 97-RBI year in AA in 2010 and a .872 OPS […]
This is a few days late, but in case you haven’t heard, the Mets have signed Daisuke Matsuzaka to a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to spring training.
Maybe I was spoiled by last week’s flurry of free-agent signings. Perhaps the Mets should have found a way to space out the news of John Lannan‘s arrival and Omar Quintanilla‘s return. Or maybe I’m just tired of hearing the same stories regurgitated fifteen ways to Sunday since early November. Will Mets sign Stephen Drew? […]
