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.

Freddy Got (Middle) Fingered

The Mets didn’t have a game scheduled for today, but they’re still all over the back pages of the tabloids. No one threw a firecracker in a crowded parking lot. No one threw bleach on anyone. No one shouted homophobic slurs at anyone. In fact, no players were involved in the controversy. But the man […]

Justin Turner “Un-Vail-ed”

It seems like a lot of people have sent the Justin Turner bandwagon into overdrive. From #JustinTurnerFacts on Twitter (tip of the blue Mets cap to The Daily Stache for creating what has become a trending topic on Twitter) to this guy who’s written too many blogs on him recently, Justin Turner seems to be […]

Enjoy Carlos Beltran While He’s Still Here

Carlos Beltran has never been many things.  He’s never been the most popular player on the Mets.  He’s never been a media darling.  He’s never been the vocal rah-rah type of leader some teams have.  He’s never had to be any of these people because for years, Beltran has let his play on the field […]

Power Play: Could Ike Davis Be The Next Darryl Strawberry?

An article by posted on April 24, 2011 0 Comments

It seems odd to compare Ike Davis to Darryl Strawberry.  After all, Darryl was the #1 pick in the 1980 amateur draft, took home the Rookie of the Year Award in 1983, and is at or near the top of many of the Mets’ all-time hitting records.  Ike Davis?  He was known for being the […]

An Open Letter To Brooklyn Dodger Lover Fred Wilpon

Dear Mr. Wilpon, I was recently at the Mets Team Store on the Field Level at Citi Field looking for some Mets T-shirts. After being pleasantly surprised to finally see R.A. Dickey and Angel Pagan number shirts for sale, my jaw dropped when I saw yet another piece of Brooklyn Dodgers merchandise. This wasn’t yet […]

For Mike Pelfrey, The Hits Just Keep On Comin’

An article by posted on April 7, 2011 0 Comments

Mike Pelfrey is entering his sixth season with the Mets, compiling a 43-41 record over his first five seasons in New York (43-42 after his Opening Day loss to the Florida Marlins). Although Pelfrey is just 27 years old, there have been only 17 pitchers in franchise history who have won more games than Big […]

Jason Bay Is At The Crossroads of His Mets Career

An article by posted on March 30, 2011 0 Comments

Last winter, the Mets were actively searching for an outfielder with some pop in his bat. After all, when the team leader in home runs only hit 12, as Daniel Murphy did in 2009, some energy had to be infused so that the team didn’t suffer a similar power outage in back-to-back seasons. With Matt […]

Mets Fans Are Loyal No Matter What The Polls Say

An article by posted on March 22, 2011 0 Comments

The Mets were a mediocre team in 2010, finishing the season with a 79-83 record. That mark was the 20th best in baseball (or the 11th worst, if you’re standing on your head while looking at the standings). That was a nine-game improvement over the dismal 2009 season, when injuries turned the Mets into Johan […]

Izzy Lightning In A Bottle?

Jason Isringhausen was one of three members of Generation K, the triumvirate of young pitchers who were supposed to be the ’90s version of Seaver, Koosman and Matlack. Isringhausen had the most success after his initial call-up to the majors in 1995, going 9-2 with a 2.81 ERA in 14 starts. However, injuries took their […]

A Dubious Mets Pitching Feat, 20 Years In The Making

An article by posted on February 23, 2011 0 Comments

Throughout their nearly half-century of existence, the Mets have always prided themselves on their pitching. From stalwarts like Tom Seaver and Jerry Koosman to ’80s greats Dwight Gooden and David Cone, the Mets have always had a quality starter or two in their rotation. Even the current Mets have an ace up their sleeve every […]
