End of Season Report

By / September 4, 2009 / Uncategorized

So my partner in crime, Joey, was recently asked at his job by a CFoD reader when I was putting up my end of season recommendations.

I was going to wait until the official end of the season, but I figured I could put it up now since the season is pretty much over. So I will be putting up that report this weekend.

I have been doing my research as to who the free agents will be during the offseason and who is coming off the books. I have a decent list to work with.

Looking forward to this blog actually. Usually my end of season blogs are “lick-your-wounds-and-come-back-strong”. Not this time!

You might be surprised at some of my suggestions I think the Mets should consider. There are a couple of players the Mets should consider providing those players are willing to change positions.

Would you like a preview?

I have two bats in mind, a pitcher and someone I have been beasting for the Mets to get. If you have been reading my blogs, you know who I am talking about. CFoD reader, Jeff, gave me so much grief for it.

See you soon!

“NYM Should be sign Free Agents”
Catcher- Josh Bard or Jason Kendall
1st Basemen-Adam LaRoche or Nick Johnson
Left Field- Matt Holliday or Jason Bay
Starting Pitcher- Justin Duchscherer or Jarrod Washburn
Relif Pitcher-Joe Biemel or Will Ohman
-Chane of getting one or two of these players: Slim to none. Just some sugestions….

The Mets had a chance to get LaRoche. Too much bad blood between him and Beltran. Holliday does not want to come to New York. I’m all for Bay. I’ve wanted Biemel since last off-season. I even inquired about Ohman.

The Mets won’t get Bay because Boston will do whatever it takes to keep him. I would be really surprised if they didn’t. Nick Johnson is too injury prone. This has been his lone healthy season. Not enough for me to take a chance on unless he takes a big pay cut and a short term contract. Plus, the Mets have Ike Davis in the farm and Nick Evans.

If I were GM, I have to look at the whole picture. First, I need to look closely at my scouting department and player development people. The mets need to be in a position where they develop young players at a quicker pace than they do now.

However, to focus on the major league club. I don’t think there has to be a total rebuilding project. Think of it, the Mets have 3 very good players, All-stars at their positions. Reyes, Wright, and Beltran. I don’t touch any of these guys. Some people forget that in 06-08 these three played more games than any other combination of All Stars during that time. And the mets were pretty good in 06-08. I would go after Orlando Husdon but 2nd base is deep this year in free-agency. I would go after Carl Crawford if TB doesn’t pick up his option. Now, you can live with Murphy at 1B and a platoon system at C.

Line-up can look like this:
Reyes
Crawford
Wright
Beltran
Francouer
Murphy
2nd basemen (Hudson/Lopez)
Catcher
Pitcher

The bullpen is a flip of the coin. I would get quality arms in the pen

The rotation is the biggest problem
You have Santana. But after that, a lot of question marks. There are two guys I would take a flyer on: Harden and Bedard. The problem with these two are injuries. The mets should look at Marquies, he is consistent.

If Pelfry, maine and Perez can pitch better this year. We will have a shot at the division.

The Mets could do this. They could sign Jason marquies and either Harden/Bedard. Move Maine to the pen and let Perez fight for a job. If not, trade him.

Now you are looking at:
Santana
Bedard/Harden
Pelfry
Marquies
Perez/Niese/Parnell – whoever wins the 5th spot.
