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.

It has been only 11 months since undergoing Tommy John surgery, but Billy Wagner has been progressing quite well in his minor league rehab assignment.  He has made four appearances facing live hitters and is yet to give up a run.  His fastball has been clocked at 94 MPH and most importantly, he has not […]

Francisco Rodriguez was supposed to be the answer to the bullpen problems the Mets suffered last year.  For the first half of the season, he was as good as advertised, picking up save after save and keeping his ERA south of 1.00.  Then Luis Castillo dropped the pop-up at Yankee Stadium, giving Rodriguez his first […]

I’ll make this short and (hopefully) sweet, so please don’t shoot the blogger.  As you may already know, I am an optimist.  However, as much as I’d like to see the Mets have a miraculous finish to the 2009 season, every time they lose to second division teams like Arizona, the chances of them playing […]
