Francisco Cordero Makes the Most Sense for The Mets

The team has also been linked to one player who, in my opinion, probably makes the most sense for the Mets. Francisco Cordero. Cordero, who was with the Reds in 2011, saved […]

MMO Exclusive Interview: NY Mets Pitching Prospect – Brant Rustich, RHP

When the Mets drafted RHP Brant Rustich in the second round of the 2007 MLB Amateur Draft, many thought with his size, strength, stuff, and advanced skills, that he would move quickly through the minor leagues and be ready to help out in the big league bullpen sooner rather than later. Many Mets fans began to […]
