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.

Keith, The Mets & Me: A Thirty-Year Love Affair

Time For The Mets To Switch Things Up

Unless you’ve been spending the first few months of the 2013 season under a rock, you know that the Mets are off to a less-than-spectacular start.  Through 56 games, the Mets have a disappointing 23-33 record.  The only teams in baseball that are more than ten games under .500 are the Milwaukee Brewers, Houston Astros […]

Featured Post: If At First You Don’t Succeed, Try Again In The Minors

There has been much talk and speculation recently about the possible demotion of Ike Davis to the minors.  Such discussion is certainly warranted considering Davis’ performance over the first 40 games of the season. The Mets’ struggling first baseman is hitting .156 with four homers and nine RBI.  His on-base percentage is an unhealthy .238 […]

Matt Harvey vs. Other Mets Greats Through 14 Starts

Since being promoted to the big leagues on July 26, 2012, Matt Harvey has lived up to, and at times, exceeded expectations.  The former first round draft pick has become one of the toughest pitchers to hit in the National League since his debut and his confidence is on par with that of a veteran […]
