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.

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 […]

Daniel Murphy – The Mets’ Overlooked Offensive Star

With all the attention being paid to John Buck’s torrid start, another Met’s offensive performance has gone under the radar.  But his start is just as noteworthy as Buck’s. Daniel Murphy has always been a great contact hitter, lashing doubles at a rate never before seen by a left-handed hitter in Mets history.  Nearly one-quarter […]

If Carlos Beltran Can Do It, So Can Johan Santana

The Mets have announced that Johan Santana will not break camp with the Mets when the team heads north next weekend.  Santana has still not been able to pitch off a mound and only today will begin long-tossing, albeit from a distance of just 90 feet. As much as I would like to see Santana […]

I didn’t have to go too far back for this edition of MMO Flashback which was originally posted on January 30 of this year. But it’s relevancy makes it worth a second look considering it was written long before people started hopping back on the Jordany Valdespin bandwagon. Enjoy… In 2012, Jordany Valdespin put his […]

Why Haven’t The Mets Retired Jerry Koosman’s Number?

I was recently doing research for another piece when I came across the career numbers of three pitchers – Bert Blyleven, Randy Jones and Don Wilson.  In particular, I focused on what Blyleven achieved during his 11 seasons in Minnesota, as well as what Jones did in eight years with the Padres and what Wilson […]

The Kid Is Gone, Long Live The Kid

One year ago today, Gary Carter lost his battle with brain cancer at the young age of 57.  Carter’s loss was felt throughout the Mets community, with tributes ranging from t-shirts to a home plate candlelight vigil to commemorative patches on the team’s jerseys and the outfield wall at Citi Field. Carter was a leader […]

Mets Catcher John Buck Is More Throwback Than Throw-In

When the Mets sent R.A. Dickey to Toronto earlier this offseason (along with Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas), they received two of the Blue Jays’ top prospects in Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard.  Toronto also threw in veteran catcher John Buck to complete the deal.  Buck is expected to begin the season as the Mets’ […]
