The Tide Is Shifting: Alderson Will Be Held Accountable This Offseason

It’s my first morning back home after spending three days in Saratoga, NY where some of my family resides and where we celebrated the Thanksgiving holiday. It’s always nice when the entire family gets together again for those 2-3 occasions a year where we eat, have fun, and catch up with everyone on everything. I come […]

Flores Vs. Nimmo: Who Is The Better Mets Prospect?

I’m busy working on MMO’s official Mets Top 25 Prospects list. I should start rolling it out in reverse order beginning next week. As I near the completion of all my research and start to fit in all the pieces of the puzzle as best as I can, I’m finding it so interesting to see how much […]

Alderson Has Given Mets Fans Nothing To Be Thankful For

Mets General Manager Sandy Alderson has not given the Mets fans much to be thankful for so far this offseason. It is almost the end of November, and all he has done is make a few minor league signings. At this point it’s tough to say whether or not the players he has signed thus far are […]

Let’s See A Little More Of Matt Harvey, Before We “Omar Minaya” Him

I caught a Mailbag Post on MetsBlog entitled: Can the Mets “Matt Moore” Matt Harvey? Huh? Oh I see… Basically that’s the MB reader’s term for describing the concept of locking up a young promising player through his arbitration years and maybe even buying out one or two years of that player’s free agency, as […]

MMO Mailbag: Trading for Giancarlo Stanton

Hitman asks: With this hoopla going on right now with David Wright and the contract negotiations (Wright being dissatisfied by the contract offer in length & value), and Giancarlo Stanton being very outspoken against Miami, wouldn’t it be smart to package Wright along with Johan Santana (eat about 60% of his contract), Zack Wheeler, Jeurys […]

Is Chone Figgins A Good Fit For The Mets?

I was reading MetsBlog’s take by Matt Cerrone on why he feels the Mets should jump on the recently released Chone Figgins. Figgins was pretty terrible last season. I’m talking Jason Bay-level terrible. He was no better in 2011. To be an upgrade for the Mets, he wouldn’t even have to be close to what […]

From Left Field: I’m Thankful For The Mets

It’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Every year they’re fighting for a World Series crown. If they don’t make it, they go out and spend millions of dollars to bring in players who will help the franchise achieve its goal of a championship. And if it doesn’t work that year, they’ll repeat the process […]
