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.

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 […]

What If Johnny Damon Were Derek Jeter

Earlier today, our very own Annie Savoy posted a piece on Derek Jeter after he reached a significant milestone yesterday.  While we’re on the topic of Derek Jeter, I felt the need to chime in on the matter.  Therefore… We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog on the Mets to bring you this PSA (pretty solid […]

The Kids Are All Right

This year’s Mets team has been a pleasant surprise, going 45-43 with makeshift lineups and a lack of star power.  They have performed above everyone’s expectations, despite a slow start and injuries to their corner infielders and ace pitcher.  The Mets are proving that the best teams aren’t always the ones with a roster full […]

Pelfrey: Standing Tall At Home

Look at the photo to the left. That was the linescore from last night’s game, a complete game victory by Mike Pelfrey in which Big Pelf was voted co-player of the game with Carlos Beltran (who hit a monster two-run homer that was estimated at 460 feet). It was the first complete game of the […]

8 Years Since No. 7 Played Game No. 1, And He’s Still Smiling

Eight years ago yesterday, the Mets were playing the Texas Rangers in an interleague game. The Mets fell short in that game, losing by the final score of 9-7. It was just another game on the schedule for the Mets, who were on their way to a 66-95 season under first-year manager Art Howe. But […]

Jason Bay Brings Out The Boo In All Of Us

Jason Bay is being paid $66 million by the New York Mets to suck. Judging by the boos at Citi Field, he is earning every penny of it. But what are they booing exactly? Is it the lack of home runs by Bay after smashing 36 longballs for Boston in 2009? Is it the failure […]
