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.

After a long 2009 season that resulted in our crosstown rivals taking the World Series from our division rivals, the hot stove season has officially begun.  Opening Day of the 2010 season is exactly five months away and the Mets have plenty of work to do in those five months, to say the least. The […]

Adrian Gonzalez To The Mets: Deal Or No Deal?

An article by posted on October 31, 2009 0 Comments

Interesting news here on Adrian Gonzalez.  Chris Ello at 619Sports.net (a blog that discusses San Diego sports) has noticed that the Padres did not include any photos of slugging first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in the ticket brochures they mailed out to past season ticket holders.  It seems like an odd move for the Padres to […]

Frightening Moments In Mets History

We’ve made it to another Halloween, Mets fans!  That means it’s time for my first annual “Frightening Moments In Mets History” blog.  It’s so scary that even Jose Reyes was not prepared for the shocking stories he was about to read. I’ve gone through the archives (and by archives, I mean Google and my warped […]

Some people are calling it the Doomsday Series.  Others are calling it the World Series From Hell.  I’m calling it Armageddon.  Regardless of what name you’re attaching to this year’s Fall Classic, the World Series no Mets fan wanted to see between the Yankees and the Phillies has become a reality and is set to […]

October 27, 1986:  The Dream Has Come True

Two days ago, I wrote about the twenty-third anniversary of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.  Miraculous as that game was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game.  Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World […]

Why We Can’t Have A Yankees-Phillies World Series

The Yankees finished with the best record in baseball, swept the red-hot Twins in the ALDS and are now playing the Angels in the American League Championship Series.  The Phillies won their third straight division title, were clutch in Colorado and are now trying to repeat as National League Champions.  Both teams are currently three […]

How About Brandon Lyon Setting Up K-Rod?

An article by posted on October 20, 2009 0 Comments

Yesterday, Joe D posted a blog suggesting that picking up J.J. Putz’s option would be a waste of money.  I happen to agree with his position.  Putz’s option is way too much for a man who has been a shadow of himself due to various injuries.  There are other less expensive options the Mets could […]
