Mets Morning News: David Wright asks for gravy, but Wilpons play turkey so far

Nick Laham

Your Tuesday morning dose of stuffing-filled New York Mets news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

David Wright is hoping for an early Thanksgiving gift, as the non-superstar told reporters that he "[has] expectations" and that he expects the Mets to make serious offseason moves.

The folks over at Mets Minors suggest that Rafael Montero should be an untouchable prospect for the Mets. A good idea in theory, but it becomes hard to trade players when there are none left that can be used as trade bait.

David Aardsma had some choice words for PED users; specifically in regards to the big contract Jhonny Peralta received. Well, Mr. Aardsma, if you can't beat them join them! Right? Wait...

The Brooklyn Cyclones will be spreading Festivus cheer this year, as they will be running a toy drive between December 2 and December 13. Folks who bring a toy valued at $10 or more will get a box seat to see the best baseball team in New York City, your 2014 Brooklyn Cyclones!

Around MLB

Somewhat regarding the Mets, Howard Johnson has signed on to be the Mariners hitting coach. Best of luck to HoJo!

The Yankees are reportedly still interested in Carlos Beltran. While the only pinstripes I would like to see Carlos in are that of the royal blue variety, it shouldn't hurt his chances of going into the Hall of Fame in a Mets cap if he went to the Bronx.

Mike Napoli suggests that he would like another tour-of-duty with Boston in 2014. This seems unsurprising since, as the night after the World Series reminded us, Mike loves the Boston scenery and nightlife.

Dan Haren has signed a 1-year, $10 million deal with the Dodgers. Haren is from Southern California and seemed very interested in returning to the West Coast.

The Oakland A's have signed a new lease with the Oakland Coliseum. Oakland had reportedly been looking at other options, including AT&T Park, but were able to make a deal.

The Wall Street Journal asks if this "has been the worst year ever for New York Sports?" In my opinion, the rumors of our city's demise are greatly exaggerated since only the Mets and Yankees have played a full season thus far.

Yesterday at AA

Dan Lewis' FanPost talks about the impacts of PEDs on the offseason market.

On this date in 50-years-ago, Pete Rose beat out Ron Hunt for 1963 Rookie of the Year award.
