Wright to Team: Stop Talking and Start Doing


As part of a new series on the Daily Stache, we will highlight some of the best blog posts from around the Metsosphere from the prior week. Here’s a look at some of the best from Metsland recently:

  • There Still May be Hope for Ruben Tejada- Ex-Met shortstop Jose Reyes made a small bit of news this week when he was critical of Ruben Tejada‘s inability to lock down the starting shortstop job. Specifically, Reyes insinuated that perhaps Tejada simply had not put in the required work to hold it down long-term. Click here for more from Mets360.
  • Rollins Would Have Played for the Mets, Says Future is Bright- When Jimmy Rollins was still with the Phillies, there were two reports that he would use his veto rights to kill any trade to the Mets, who were reportedly very interested in the boisterous and still very productive shortstop. However, in an interview with Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, Rollins refuted those reports and admitted that the New York Mets were his second choice of preferred offseason trade destinations.

  • Johan Santana Signs with Blue Jays- The Toronto Blue Jays signed pitcher Johan Santana to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training Thursday. The 35-year-old has not pitched in the major leagues since 2012 as a member of the Mets. Click here for more from Amazin Avenue.
  • Daniel Murphy is Driving the Ball, Using Lower Body Thanks to Kevin Long- New Mets hitting coach Kevin Long already has Daniel Murphy using the lower-half of his body and driving the ball more, the All-Star second baseman told SNY’s Mets Hot Stove on Saturday night.
