Pitchers and catchers to Mets camp today. Check. Kate Upton on Tuesday. Check. Yankees pitchers and catchers same day. Check. Yep, good week ahead.
Things will work out fine for Wheeler. Fellow stud right-hander Matt Harvey made his major league debut on July 26 last season. The “Wheels” should be rolling into Citi Field by that date this year — if not before.
The Amazin’s have three players on MLB.com’s Top 100 Prospect List, each ranking in the top 30. Most notably are catcher Travis d’Arnaud (ranked sixth) — who was snatched up in the R.A. Dickey deal — and Zack Wheeler (ranked eighth).
“Yeah,” Cashman replied when asked if there was a chance that A-Rod could miss the entire season. “I think because (of) the serious nature of the surgery and the condition that he’s trying to recover from, you know, there is that chance.”
“There are a number of things that we’re currently involved in pursuing, and we’re hopeful that we’ll have some additions before spring training starts,” AIderson said. “I expect that we will have some additions.”
According to the New York Post, owners Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz have refinanced $450 million in loans that were borrowed against SportsNet New York, the cable network which airs the vast majority of Mets game throughout the season.
“I think it’s important for me to grieve leaving New York,” Dickey said on Tuesday. “I had a proverbial home there. I had a home among fans. I had a home in an organization.”
I assure you that in a year or two, you’ll look at the R.A. Dickey trade as a watershed moment for the Mets.
The prevalent theory is usually to sell high on a stock when you can. Time will tell whether the dividend pays off.
“Thank you for making me feel wanted,” R.A. Dickey tweeted just before the official trade announcement.
Count Monday as a Mets win, even though sometimes even winning involves a modicum of pain.
New York will send Dickey, catcher Josh Thole and catcher Mike Nickeas to Toronto for d’Arnaud, pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard, Major League catcher John Buck and 18-year-old outfield prospect Wuilmer Becerra.
The Mets and Blue Jays have agreed in principle on a deal involving Cy Young Award-winner R.A. Dickey, according to multiple reports.
R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball could soon be headed to Toronto.
