Mets Rumors: Does Sandy Alderson Have Something Big .... Up His Sleeve (Updated) ?

Mets Rumors:

Watch the Video, You Decide?

The Mets are ready to strike and have their hands in the BIG Pot for a change. Sounds like the Mets have small moves they could do, but the Mets sound like they have a big deal also in place. Listen to Sandy.. We have options... That Could Mean the Mets will add significant payroll to a budget that has exceeded the Wilpon's Pockets already with SP Bartolo Colon who was added this week...

"I think it's more likely if we come up with a 'high-end' shortstop or someone we like, it's more likely to come in a trade," Alderson told reporters.

Sandy Alderson sounds like a man that has a big play in his hands.. Especially for a shortstop.. or even a outfielder.. The Mets seem they can get a shortstop from the trade market.. but can it get bigger??

Let's Play Devils Advocate for a Minute.. Maybe the Mets can get in a Matt Kemp Deal? or Maybe Be a Piece in a three-way deal to a David Price deal?.... Who the Fuck Knows?

The Mets could look to a handful of teams (Updated) for some answers like the D'Backs, Brewers, Dodgers, Rangers, and even .. Mariners (updated)

Target 1:  (Updated) The Arizona Diamondbacks are rumored to have strong ties to a SP David Price deal according to Matt Cerrone (Hat Tip) of Mets Blog. The Diamondbacks have many shortstops to offer... The D-Backs have shortstops Didi Gregorius, Chris Owings and Nick Ahmed, all of whom are top infield prospects, as well as Cliff Pennington, who is under contract through 2014. The Mets could possibly be involved in a three team trade as been reported and mentioned numerous times on The D'Backs put Gregorius and A.J. Pollack on the market last year for pitching prospects, maybe the D'Backs look to do the same before spring training ends..

Mets News: Mets sign 16 year-old Dominican Outfielder Ricardo Cespedes

The Mets have signed 16-year-old Dominican outfielder Ricardo Cespedes.

Baseball America recently offered this write-up:

Last year Jhon Carmona trained Dominican shortstop Amed Rosario, whose $1.75 million bonus from the Mets was the biggest of the 2012-13 international signing period.

This year Carmona has an outfielder, Ricardo Cespedes, who has also been getting interest from the Mets. Cespedes is a 6-foot-2 lefty with a good set-up, a nice swing and a line-drive, gap-to-gap approach. Cespedes doesn’t have the athleticism or raw power that Rosario had, but he has a cleaner stroke while showing solid speed and arm strength. Cespedes can sign once he turns 16 on Aug. 24.

I found some video on young Cespedes:

Conspiracy in the Bronx: Are the Yankees Faking A-Rod's Quad Injury to Collect Insurance Money?

Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez believes that the team is misrepresenting his quadriceps injury simply to collect insurance money. He had a second opinion on his injury that confirmed he is healthy (video above).

Michael L. Gross, chief of the division of sports Medicine and the orthopedic director of The Sports Medicine Institute at Hackensack University, told WFAN on Wednesday that Rodriguez has no injury.

"To be perfectly honest,'' Gross told host Mike Francesa, "I don't see any sort of injury there.''

Rodriguez, who's earning $28 million this season, was scheduled to be activated Monday for the first time this season after undergoing January hip surgery. Yet, the Yankees ordered him to undergo an MRI exam in New York where he was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strained quadriceps, keeping him sidelined at least another week to 10 days.

General manager Brian Cashman released a statement Wednesday night firing back at Rodriguez.

"I heard via a text message this afternoon from Alex Rodriguez that he had retained a doctor to review his medical situation. In media reports, we have since learned that the doctor in question has acknowledged that he did not examine Mr. Rodriguez and that he was not retained to do a comprehensive medical examination of Mr. Rodriguez. Contrary to the Basic Agreement, Mr. Rodriguez did not notify us at any time that he was seeking a second opinion from any doctor with regard to his quad strain."

Cashman said Rodriguez told him July 12 that he had "tightness" in his quadriceps and reported "stiffness" on Sunday, saying he should not play Sunday or Monday. It was at that point Rodriguez was sent to have an MRI exam.

"As always, we will follow the rules and regulations set forth in the Basic Agreement, and will again re-evaluate Alex in Tampa tomorrow, as our goal is to return him to the lineup as soon as he is medically capable of doing so," Cashman said.

Rodriguez reported Wednesday to the Yankees' spring-training facility in Tampa.

Video: Colton Plaia Throws People Out - Mets 15th Round Pick

Colton Plaia ’13, star catcher for the LMU baseball team, was named the 2013 West Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year.

In his senior season, he led all WCC catchers throwing out base runners attempting to steal.

Watch the video (below) as Plaia describes what goes on inside a catcher’s head in the brief seconds of a steal attempt.

Colton Plaia Throws People Out | LMU Magazine

The Mets added Colton Plaia, a catcher from Loyola Marymount University, in the 15th round.

Plaia has a robust build and excellent overall strength, and projects to be a Major League backup catcher. He's nearly physically mature with his solid legs and is a durable receiver. Plaia has a tough presence, and his plus-arm is his best tool, though he only throws out runners with varying consistency.

At the plate, he has home run power, but he struggles with offspeed adjustments at the plate. In his senior season at Loyola Marymount, Plaia hit .311 with three home runs and 25 RBIs. He also had a .440 slugging percentage.

Video: Rosenthal says the Mets would make sense as a destination for Andre Ethier

Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports says the Mets would make sense as a destination for Andre Ethier of the Dodgers.

With Johan Santana, Jason Bay and Frank Francisco coming off the books, the Mets could have the financial flexibility to deal for Ethier and a chunk of the four years and $71.5MM that will be left on his contract by the time this offseason rolls around.

Mets News: Mets Select OF Jared King in the fifth round (146th Overall)

Mets News:

Mets Select OF Jared King in the fifth round (146th  Overall)

King is a solid college performer with good tools across the board. His best tool is his bat, and he has the chance to hit for both average and power. He has tremendous bat speed with a short stroke from both sides of the plate and the ball carries off his bat. He's a solid average runner who might be better suited for a corner outfield spot and that could mean left given that his arm is his weakest tool. It's his bat, though, that will get him drafted, and he might have enough to be taken off the board in the first few rounds.


Mets News: Mets Select 2B L.J. Mazzilli in the forth round (116th Overall)

Mets News:

Mets Select 2B L.J. Mazzilli in the forth round  (116th Overall)

The son of former big leaguer  and former Met Lee Mazzilli was selected in the ninth round of the 2012 Draft by the Twins, but he opted to go back to UConn for his senior season. He responded with a solid all-around season that could very well help his Draft status. Mazzilli has a solid swing with decent bat speed and projects to keep hitting for average at the next level. He's not a huge power guy, but he should run into a handful of home runs and could pile up the doubles. He's an excellent baserunner who makes the most of his decent speed. Mazzilli has made progress on his defense and most feel he should be able to stay on the infield as an offensive-minded second baseman.


Mets News: Mets Select OF Ivan Wilson in the third round (76th Overall)

Mets News:

 Mets Select OF Ivan Wilson in the third round (76th Overall)

Wilson's combination of tools and athleticism is among the best of this year's prep outfielders. He is listed at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds with good strength and plus speed. Wilson, out of Ruston H.S. (La.), has good power and can hit home runs to any part of the ballpark. He takes advantage of his power-speed combination thanks to good instincts on the basepaths. Wilson has excellent range in the outfield and enough arm for right field if he can't stay in center field. By mid-May, he still hadn't committed to college, leaving scouts wondering about his signability.
