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.

Regardless Of The Reyes Situation, Ruben Tejada Is A Keeper

In a 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves last weekend, Ruben Tejada filled in for Jose Reyes both at shortstop and in the leadoff spot.  Tejada reached base three times (walk, double, single), stole a base and drove in four runs.  His two-out, three-run double in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie and his two-out, […]

If Only David Wright Had Progressed Like Ryan Braun

Earlier today, my colleague at MMO, Jason Pafundi, wrote an interesting piece on why the Mets should consider trading David Wright.  Jason is not the first person on this site or on other sites to explore this topic.  The trading of the Mets’ third baseman is a topic that can be argued for days on […]

Dickey has the […]

Daniel Murphy, Doubles Machine

Most of the news surrounding the Mets these days start with “Carlos Beltran this” or “Carlos Beltran that”.  In fact, there have been so many posts all over the blogosphere about the Mets’ soon-to-be-traded rightfielder (such as this one and this other one.  Both were decent pieces, but the latter post was a little too […]
