Ed Leyro

Ed Leyro was hatched in the Bronx, but spent most of his youth in Queens at Shea Stadium. Apparently, all that time spent at Mets games paid off as Ed met his wife (The Coop) for the first time at Citi Field during its inaugural season. Guess the 2009 season was good for something after all. In addition to his work at Mets Merized Online, Ed also owns, operates and is head janitor at Studious Metsimus, where he shares blogging duties with Joey Beartran. For those not in the know, Joey is a teddy bear dressed in a Mets hoodie. Clearly, Studious Metsimus is not your typical Mets blog.

Where Have All The Shea Stadium Players Gone?

Since late July, the Mets have parted ways with several players.  First, it was Carlos Beltran leaving his heart in New York to go to San Francisco.  Then Jose Reyes decided to take the money and run the basepaths in Miami.  Soon after, Angel Pagan flapped his wings to the Bay Area.  Even Nick Evans […]

I’ll Always Love Carlos Beltran, But…

Recently, Brian Joura at mets360.com posted an interesting piece on whether Carlos Beltran would wear a Mets hat when elected to the Hall of Fame.  The thing that struck me the most about the title was the word “when”. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Carlos Beltran and was hoping the Mets would re-sign […]

The Perfect Way For The Mets To Stick It To The Marlins

If you’re a true Mets fan, then you know how much the Marlins have been a thorn in the team’s side since 2007.  First, Tom Glavine was able to retire only one more batter than I did in the 2007 regular season finale, completing the Mets’ collapse.  One year later, the Marlins wouldn’t get off […]

Good For John Franco, But Where’s Jesse Orosco?

I’m very happy that John Franco has become the latest member of the Mets’ Hall of Fame.  He is more than deserving of the honor, having pitched 14 seasons with the Mets and becoming the franchise’s all-time saves leader.  However, I am surprised by the fact that Franco was inducted this year, when there is […]

Can Sandy Alderson Avoid The Year “2″ Blues?

As the dawn of the new millenium arrived, while people were talking about whether Y2K was going to give them the blues, the Mets were one of the best teams in the National League.  They were in the middle of their only back-to-back playoff appearances in franchise history and things appeared to be on the […]

In case you fell asleep early last night and haven’t been reading any of the other countless posts on the topic here at MMO, I have some sad news to report. A little over two hours before midnight, it was revealed that Jose Reyes decided to accept the Marlins’ latest contract offer of six years […]

Why Misleading Stats On David Wright Change Everything

Since 2004, David Wright has been a fan favorite.  His name can be found all over the Mets’ all-time offensive leaderboard and he has accomplished this all before his 29th birthday.  Because of this, some Mets fans would find it impossible to see the team without David Wright and would consider it sacrilege to trade […]

David Wright Hasn’t Been The Same Since Matt Cain

Ever since Shea Stadium closed its doors for the final time in 2008, David Wright has not been the same player.  At least that’s what I hear from many Mets fans.  Although I do think the move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field has hurt Wright’s power stroke, I don’t think the ballpark is to […]

Hey, Kids!  How Do You Like The World Zzzzeries?

Despite the “Hey, Kids!” in the title, I’m going to start this post by asking a question to our older readers.  Tell me, my friends.  Do you remember when you were in school and you rushed home every October to watch a World Series game at home?  How about the times when your teacher would […]
