    ESPN’s Adam Rubin reported that the Mets had shown interest in free agent shortstop Rafael Furcal now that Jhonny Peralta is off the board and spending a lot of money on Stephen Drew is an unappetizing thought.

    You all act like you hate the War on Christmas, but tell me, if it were won by the anti-Christmas hordes, wouldn’t we be without awful things like the Mets singing Christmas songs? OK, I guess that can be an all-purpose holiday/seasonal song, so maybe the War on Christmas is irrelevant here. But someone should…

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game Five

  8. Mets sign Brandon Allen

    Nov 19, 2013, 1:13 PM EDT

    Brandon Allen

    In a move that might add a little more steam to the Ike Davis trade rumors, the Mets signed first baseman Brandon Allen to a minor-league contract. Odds are the Allen deal is mostly just for organizational depth, as the 27-year-old has struggled in various big-league stints. He does, however, have very good numbers in…

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:00 PM EDT

    Ike Davis

    The Brewers need a first baseman, that much is obvious. Long time outfielder Corey Hart is one option, and one that Brewers GM Doug Melvin has certainly considered. Melvin, however, is looking towards the Big Apple as a creative way to round out his roster, noticing that the Mets will be open to moving Ike…

    Corey Hart

    Mike Puma of the New York post reports that free agent Corey Hart is drawing interest from the Mets. As are a dozen other teams, apparently undeterred by Hart’s multiple knee surgeries.

    National League New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana during first inning action in Washington

    Johan Santana is officially a free agent, as the Mets declined his $25 million option for 2014 and paid him a $5.5 million buyout. It was obviously a no-brainer move, as Santana missed the entire season following shoulder surgery and is no sure thing to be ready for the beginning of next year. He’ll likely…
