Mets News: Mets getting bumped off WFAN for Yankees?


Mets News:


According to Multiple Reports,  Mets games will no longer be heard on the WFAN, where they are expected to be replaced by their cross-town rivals the New York Yankees.

The Yankees and CBS Radio are close to a deal that would put the Yankees on WFAN starting in 2014.

The arrangement would bump the Mets off the radio station that has carried them since its inception on July 1, 1987.

The Mets options are ESPN New York (98.7 FM) and WOR-AM, which is owned by Clear Channel Media, a serious bidder for the Yankees rights earlier in the process.

Jeff Wilpon, the Mets' chief operating officer, said Tuesday that it is "fairly accurate" the Mets are leaving WFAN. He said the team is negotiating with multiple parties and expects a resolution for 2014 and beyond in about six weeks.

Mets News and Notes: Johnson, Santana's Awkward Stat, Gee, Alderson on WFAN, Mejia, Nieuwenhuis


Mets News and Notes:

Catcher Rob Johnson was suppose to be demoted to Triple-A Buffalo  instead he landed on the major league DL with a torn ligament in his left thumb.Johnson will not require surgery, but he is being prescribed six weeks off, which essentially makes the injury season-ending.

Before Shutting down Johan Santana, he allowed six earned runs or more in each of his last five starts, a franchise record. His 4.85 ERA for the season becomes the highest for a left-handed starter in franchise history, topping the 4.63 ERA posted by Glendon Rusch in 2001. ESPN Stats & Information notes that while all of Santana’s pitches were less intimidating after throwing the no-hitter, the biggest decline in effectiveness came from the changeup. Batters hit .143 against the changeup through the June 1 outing, then .304 in the next 10 starts. 

Dillon Gee plans to travel to St. Louis today. With six weeks having passed since his surgery to repair a damaged artery in his pitching shoulder, Gee expects to undergo an angiogram on Friday and be cleared to begin tossing a baseball. Gee does not expect to return this season.

Alderson, appearing on WFAN, insisted he did not have a precise payroll for next season dictated from ownership yet, although a source has told ESPN NY the figure is expected to be close to this season's total. The GM did say this year's payroll would fall just less than $100 million when the entire season's spending is included.

"Obviously I'm fully aware we've got a lot of money tied up in two or three players," Alderson said, referring to 2013. "We've got some guys we'd like to keep here -- David Wright being one, R.A. Dickey being another. We've got some guys that are going to be eligible for arbitration for the first time. So we've done some calculations as to, OK, if we have 'X' amount of money, this is what we can do. 'Y' amount of money, this is what we can do."

Asked about making a big free agent signing during the upcoming offseason, Alderson instead suggested trades are a more likely route to improve the team for 2013.

"For the purpose of this discussion, let's assume the payroll is the same," Alderson said. "I don't expect the same team on the field. Look, we've watched this team for two years. We've gotten similar results the two years. There are some positives. ... We need to get better, and not incrementally. ...

Mets Owners agree to pay $162 Million to settle lawsuit


The owners of the New York Mets agreed to pay $162 million to settle a lawsuit by the trustee seeking money for the victims of Bernard Madoff's fraud, a deal that eases pressure on the owners of the cash-strapped baseball team.

The settlement calls for payments over a five-year period and Wilpon and Katz will not have to pay any cash until the fourth year. The $162 million could end up being mostly paid with money returning to the owners' Sterling Equities firm as a result of being a victim of the fraud.

Audio: Alderson says Jose Reyes will "very likely" miss 2-3 weeks


No official word from the Mets yet on Jose Reyes‘ hamstring injury,  but general manager Sandy Alderson just said during a radio interview with Joe and Evan (WFAN) that the shortstop is “very likely” to miss 2-3 weeks.

Reyes spent two weeks on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring last month and aggravated the same injury yesterday, leaving in the second inning.


It’s hard to imagine relatively minor hamstring problems really hurting Reyes’ stock much as he heads to free agency, but he’ll likely end up missing at least 30 games this season after sitting out 29 games last year and 126 games in 2009.

Even if he comes back in just two weeks and stays healthy for the stretch run Reyes will have played in 301 of 486 games since the start of 2009.

Of course, he’s also a 28-year-old shortstop with a good glove, excellent speed, and an .884 OPS, so tweaked hamstring or not teams will be lining up to sign him for huge money in a few months.

Texas Rangers are interested in Beltran and K-Rod???


WFAN and SI.com’s Jon Heyman reports that the Rangers are “interested” in Mets outfielder Carlos Beltran and Francisco Rodriguez.

Beltran and the Rangers are not an obvious match, since Texas is set at the outfield corners with Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz. Of course, there are ways to make it work, as Hamilton and Beltran are capable of playing center field. Plus, Hamilton and Cruz are not locks to avoid the DL from here on out.
