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 the ending to last night’s game, the Mets needed someone to step up today.  Perhaps it would take the collective efforts of more than one man to erase the bitter taste of the Friday Follies that took place in the ninth inning.  Maybe three men would be needed.  Which men could lead the team […]

Whenever the Mets and Red Sox square off in their rare interleague meetings, even a casual Mets fan can’t help but think of the 1986 World Series.  Their seven-game showdown was one for the ages, culminating in the World Championship trophy being brought to Shea.  During this weekend’s interleague series between the Mets and Sox, […]

In honor of this weekend’s upcoming Indianapolis 500, I’d like to share my thoughts about speed.  I seem to have noticed that the Mets are having a little bit of a problem with their power this season.  Entering this weekend’s series against the Red Sox, the Mets were 15th in the National League in home […]
