Mets News: ESPN: Warthen says Rafael Montero is "Smooth"

Mets News:


While watching right-hander Rafael Montero throwing live batting practice Tuesday, Dan Warthen uttered two words to the bullpen catcher standing next to him.

“[Expletive] smooth!” the pitching coach excitedly said.

Warthen repeatedly has said this spring training that the 23-year-old Montero possesses as close to a perfect delivery as any in the game.

His fastball generally resides in the low-90s, but he has more in the tank when required.

“I talk to guys on other teams, like in Triple-A,” said Kirk Nieuwenhuis, who faced Montero in Tuesday’s batting practice. “Come August and September, they’re just like, ‘That guy has an extra gear. His fastball has got an extra gear I can’t get to right now.’”

Said Juan Lagares, who also batted against Montero on Tuesday: “He always tries to keep the ball down and he throws a lot of strikes. It’s not too easy to hit against him, because always he keeps it down in the strike zone. He doesn’t miss too much up.”

Nieuwenhuis, a lefty hitter, said Montero can be particularly tough on those batters.

“He must have long fingers or something, because when it comes out, for a lefty it kind of looks like it’s going to sneak in on you,” Nieuwenhuis said, adding that two-seamer eventually darts back over the plate.

Special Report: Mets Have Some Cash to Spend, Maybe on Players???

The Mets’ owners, who were financially hobbled by Bernard L. Madoff’s immense fraud scheme, now have about $160 million in new money to spend..

The cash infusion, comes thanks to their majority ownership of the SNY regional sports network. One benefit of owning a network like SNY is the ability to borrow money against it. SNY’s annual revenue is in the hundreds of millions of dollars because of monthly subscriber fees that keep increasing regardless of team performance.

The resulting stability and financial muscularity of SNY and similar networks make them low risks to banks. Late last month, SNY refinanced $450 million in existing bank loans at lower interest rates and borrowed at least $250 million more. With their 65 percent ownership of SNY, Wilpon and Katz should have walked away with about $162.5 million. The refinancing was first reported Friday by Bloomberg.

The Mets could use the money to either pay back loans or working capital... A New York Times report suggest the Mets can also get into the Free Agent Market, especially the outfield market...

The best free-agent outfielder still available, by far, is Michael Bourn, the 30-year-old, left-handed-hitting center fielder who hit .274 for the Atlanta Braves last season with 42 stolen bases. But Bourn is looking for big money, perhaps as much as $100 million in a multiyear deal, and is represented by the uncompromising Scott Boras, so rule the Mets out.....

But then again,  Vince Gennaro, a consultant to several major league teams, suggested the Mets should at least think about Michael Bourn, particularly if he remains unsigned as spring training draws closer and his price drops.

Al Michaels and Bob Costas will call the Mets/Giants Game on SNY, July 8th

Al Michaels and Bob Costas will return to a baseball broadcast booth on July 8th to call the Mets vs Giants game.

The duo will call innings for SNY, Comcast Bay Area and MLB Network.

When Michaels and Costas are on SNY, Mets broadcasters Gary Cohen and Ron Darling will move to MLB Network.

Michaels famously was the lead ABC baseball broadcaster when an earthquake struck the 1989 World Series. Costas was an NBC baseball play-by-play man.

It is the first pairing of the longtime broadcasters, and Michaels' first baseball game since 1995.

The Friday night game (10 p.m. EDT) can be seen locally only on SNY.

Mets Opening Day!

NY Mets fans have waited since October for this day, Opening Day of baseball. We dropped managers, GM's, starting pitchers, a second baseman and a few million for court expenses this offseason and today is the day we start fresh.
Pelfrey will take the ball tonight at 7 PM against the Marlins in Florida. The game can be seen on SNY.
Thats of course if the Red Sox and Phillies don't mind us playing 162 games before we crown a champion.

Time Warner and Comcast may block selling SNY Stake

Time Warner Cable Inc. and Comcast Corp. may block the New York Mets' owners from selling their stake in SportsNet New York (SNY), a jointly owned regional cable channel, the Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday.

Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, owners of the baseball franchise, want to sell a minority stake in SportsNet to help cover their costs for the next two seasons. If their partners refused, it would complicate the sale, the Journal said.

The Mets owners are trying to raise roughly $200 million by selling a stake in SNY.

A Comcast spokesman declined to comment on the story. Time Warner Cable was not immediately available for comment.

Wilpon, Katz and their associates are being sued for more than $1 billion by the court-appointed trustee recovering assets for victims of disgraced U.S. financier Bernard Madoff's Ponzi scheme.

The trustee maintains the team owners, who invested with Madoff, knew or should have known of his fraud. The trustee filed an amended suit on Friday. The Mets owners denied the allegations.

In a statement posted on the New York Mets' website, Wilpon and Katz called the latest complaint, "The work of fiction created by the Trustee. We will pursue a vigorous legal defense that will set the record straight and vindicate us."

The Mets' owners control 65 percent of the cable channel, which broadcasts Mets games and other New York area sports. Time Warner Cable owns 27 percent of the network, while Comcast controls 8 percent through its majority interest in NBCUniversal, the Journal reported.

Video: Platoon might be solution at 2B

Daniel Murphy
Ted Berg of did a great piece on who has the upper hand in the second base competition. He interviewed Wally Backman and Tim Teufel, two former second basemen who ironically platooned together in '86.

Both Backman and Teufel think that it is going to be a platoon situation with Daniel Murphy getting most of the AB's because of more righties in the league. Backman thinks that Murphy can play everyday because of the work he has put in. Backman also said that Brad Emaus has natural mechanics at second base, especially when it comes to turning double plays.

Can you smell the Murphy/Emaus platoon?

Both openly admitted that Luis Castillo has to fight for the job, that it won't be just handed to him.
