Mets re-sign Wigginton to one-year pact

Postby WebHamster » Fri Feb 27, 2004 1:00 pm

Port St. Lucie, FL (Sports Network) - The New York Mets have re-signed starting third baseman Ty Wigginton, along with three other players, to one- year contracts.

The 26-year-old Wigginton set franchise rookie records for hits (146), doubles (36), extra-base hits (53) and at-bats (573) in 2003.

The 6-foot, 200-pounder finished the season with 11 homers, 71 RBI and a .255 batting average in 156 games, and received a third-place vote in the National League Rookie of the Year balloting.

The Mets also inked infielders Craig Brazell and Aarom Baldiris, and righthanded pitcher Orber Moreno.

The 26-year-old Moreno, who was 0-0 with a 7.88 ERA in seven games for the Mets last season, is the only one of the three to have appeared in the majors.

If i had the chance I would have locked him up for a longer period of time. I believe he has the talent to be a verry good ball player.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Well, right now the Mets are trying to move him to another team in order to aquire some help for the bullpen or rotation.

The Mets have been in on just about every starting pitcher on the market. But rather than dangle their top prospects, they're trying to get other clubs interested in 3B Ty Wigginton. They could have a match with either the Angels (for Ramon Ortiz) or Reds (for Cory Lidle or Paul Wilson). But the Reds haven't decided if they're buyers or sellers. And the Angels have been slow to decide whether they even want to move Ortiz. Nevertheless, clubs in contact with the Mets are convinced they'll eventually trade for both a starter and a reliever.

Wiggy is a great guy to root for. I really hope he does well in Pittsburgh. ;-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
