Mets by the Numbers

The Mets Website That Counts

More Mets

The Mets are hitting the leftovers like the day after Thanksgiving. Only hours after posting the numerical roster below, one number, 35, came available again when the Mets claimed outfielder Jason Pridie from Minnesota with a waiver claim and designated pitcher Jack Egbert for assignment. Egbert joined the Mets roster late last season when they claimed him off waivers from the White Sox, fulfilling the destiny of all baseball players on the downside of their careers from the tri-state area.

Anyway, Pridie, a potential challenger for innings in center field, is in and not yet assigned a number.

The Mets were hardly done, it turned out, signing former Met Mike Jacobs to a minor league deal and a chance to pressure incumbent Daniel Murphy at first base. There's been some speculation that Jacobs would take his old No. 27 and leave Nelson Figueroa to search for a new uni, but I doubt that comes to pass. Jacobs hasn't really earned any equity in 27 and I think he's a longshot to be anything more than a Buffalo Soldier this year, as attractive as ability to punish mistakes by righthanded pitchers is. He could really help his cause by taking up catching again, though. My guess is he takes Egbert's 35.

Also new to the NRIs is Tokyo Giants lefty Hisanori Takahashi (no relation to Ken as far as I know). This Takahashi could land in the vacant No. 21, that was his jersey back East. Ex-Rays catcher Shawn Riggans, like Jacobs a shaky defensive player with power, accepted an invite and looks to me destined for 73 or 76.

So much for our chances to

So much for our chances to be an Egbert witness.

Scrub catchers! I want to see 8 guys behind the plate at some poibt this season!

til catchers and catchers.

takahashi

arent all takahashi pitchers related?

#s

Egbert cleared waivers and is still invited to spring training so I don't think they will reassigned his # for Jacobs but maybe.

I agree with #21 for takahashi and probably #76 and# 73# for riggans and pridie.

How about #72 for Jacobs(27 backwards)?

Egbert...

There's no way a crapola AAA pitcher like him should have a major league number like 35! He's totally an 85 type...

I think Pridie will get 60

I think Pridie will get 60 and Takahashi, Riggans, and Jacobs will get 71, 72, and 73. Egbert will keep 35 and they'll keep 21 open in the longshot that they bring Delgado back. Also, Jenrry Mejia is 76. Mets.com made a mistake and left him off their roster, but he was invited to ST and both CBS and ESPN have him as 76.

Barajas

If MLB.com report is correct, what number would Barajas get?

There wouldn't be too much

There wouldn't be too much open for Barajas. Some number changes today: Marshall from 47 to 94, Pridie gets 92, Egbert from 35 to 93, Takahashi gets 47, Kai Gronauer invited to camp as 72, Mike Nickeas invited to camp as 71, Riggans gets 73, and Jacobs gets 35. That basically leaves 21 or 95-99 for Rod-Bar.

Barajas II

Or 24 or 31...

barejas

Trend is catchers in low numbers, so I'm thinking 8.

Barajas

Anyone know his uni numbers in Arizona, Texas, Philly, or Toronto?

 

Mike Piazza 31, Russell Martin 55, Matt Wieters 32, Victor Martinez 41, Jorge Posada 20, Jarrod Salty 21, Mike Napoli 44, JR Towles 46, Miguel Montero 26, Rob Johnson 32, John Baker 21, Carlos Ruiz 51, Ryan Doumit 41, Dioner Navarro 30, Ramon Hernandez 55, and Chris Iannetta 20 hardly constitute a trend of catchers in low numbers...

8, 24, and 31 are all

8, 24, and 31 are all semi-retired, so I wouldn't expect to see anyone in those.

barajas

I was referring to this year's Mets trend.of putting catchers in low numbers: the three current catchers are in 3, 4 and 9. 8 is less retired than 31 or 24, so that's my prediction.

Barajas wore #48 with

Barajas wore #48 with Arizona, #27 with Texas, #2 with the Phillies, and #20 with the Jays.
#2 could be available if Catalanotto doesn't make the team.

Hey there! I understand this

Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I had
to ask. Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require
a lot of work? I'm brand new to blogging however I do write in my journal on a daily basis.
I'd like to start a blog so I can share my personal experience and thoughts online.
Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.

Thankyou!
