. Joel Sherman of the NY Post, is reporting that the Mets are willing to listen to trade offers on both Scott Hairston and Tim Byrdak. Hairston and Byrdak are both free agents at the end of the season and could be very helpful pieces to teams in contention. Hairston is basically a left handed hitting specialist and has 12 homers and 37 RBI. He […]
Congratulations to this week’s MMO Player of the Week… Through the use of the scorecard, let’s take a look at how Daniel Murphy did during the week ending Sunday, July 22nd: G AB H R 2B 3B HR RBI BB K AVG 6 21 13 4 6 1 0 3 1 1 .615 Murphy showed us again why he is a valuable piece to our club. Aside from David Wright he is probably the next best pure […]
There are a ton a rumors swirling around regarding Justin Upton. This has led to rampant speculation on whether or not that Mets should be in especially with the Mets’ need for a right-handed bat and the GM’s almost daily reminder that his team will be buyers. That’s all fine and dandy, but one thing we all need to realize is that we have to look at and trade from the Diamondbacks perspective and that […]
Earlier this week Mets GM Sandy Alderson made some very interesting comments regarding Jordany Valdespin. As a guest with Mike Francesa on WFAN Alderson made the following comments in regards to Spin’s versatility and trying to find a spot for him in the lineup. He said ”dreaming a bit, if Valdespin could play center we might have something. “He brings athleticism, he‘s not afraid and he is versatile”. So Sandy has dreams of Jordany Valdespin…….alright […]
The Mets need more production from the catchers spot. Josh Thole does a nice job managing the pitching staff, and that is really important and oftentimes overlooked. However, that does not excuse him from being a run producer in any way, shape or form. It’s one thing to be a singles hitter with very little pop, but to do that you need to contribute in other ways. You need to drive in runs when you […]
The League is starting to catch up to Kirk Nieuwenhuis. He is striking out at an alarming rate, especially for a guy who is not playing every single day. I’m not going to speculate whether this is what he is, it’s too early for that. I’m just going to state the numbers and let the debate begin. Over the last 30 days Kirk has just 13 hits in his last 66 at-bats. That is a […]
R. A. Dickey is the best starting pitcher on the Mets staff. How many people can honestly say they thought that would ever come out of their mouths? I can’t say I was one of them, and I‘m sure neither can you. As Mets fans we started to build an affection for the knuckleballer that came out of nowhere back in 2010 when he burst onto the scene. Dickey’s multifaceted personality has quickly endeared him to the Mets […]
The series sweep of the Rays once again showed that the 2012 Mets are a resilient group of players. Something that I don’t think has been written about enough is their knack for bouncing back after tough losses or a stretch of bad baseball that has them on the fence of falling out of contention. So far this season they have overcome adversity and stormed back to reclaim their spot in the race for a […]
Over the past few seasons a lot of the talk has been about how the Subway Series has lost it’s juice. People say it’s not the same anymore. Radio personalities say that once it moved from 3 games a year to 6 games, and now alternating stadiums every year, that it became diluted. I disagree with all of that. The Subway Series is a time for New Yorkers to engage in friendly banter. Whether it […]
