Durable Applesauce - Mets look for sure things, Grapefuit League schedule announced, Coghlan wins NL ROY

New, 13 comments

Meet the Mets

Toby Hyde provides the valuable AFL update. Here's Part 2. While I'm pleased with the strong performances by guys like Ike Davis and the optimistic stories about Jenrry Mejia, I'm keeping the closest watch on the guys who have a legitimate shot at being Mets in 2010 (Josh Thole, Chris Carter, and Nick Evans). Two for three isn't too bad.

The Mets will open their Grapefruit League schedule with a March 2 game against Atlanta. Man, I enjoyed writing that sentence.

AT&T may have found the only player who is happy to be playing in Buffalo.

The initial word with regards to Met rumors has been "durable." They seem to be operating out of fear of repeating last year's fluke. Livan Hernandez is durable. That should not be a reason to get Pineiro.

Joe Janish says the Mets should take a look at Ruben Gotay again for their backup infielder spot. FanGraphs highlights Gotay as well.

Ted Berg loves prospectss. The extra s is for savings.

Around the NL East

Florida's Chris Coghlan upset the Braves Tommy Hanson and the Phillies JA Happ to win the Rookie of the Year. Not to mention Pittsburgh's Andrew McCutchen.

The Marlins have firmly placed Dan Uggla on the trading block.

Around MLB

Billy Wagner has quite the market. Apparently teams aren't scared away by the retirement talk, the Type-A classification, and the Tommy John surgery.

There are some rumors that send Adrian Gonzalez to the White Sox for Paul Konerko and prospects as part of a three-way deal.
