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.

Will Reese Havens Ever Put It Together For The Mets?

In 2008, the Mets had one of their better drafts in recent years.  That year they selected five players who have since made their major league debuts.  With the 18th overall pick, the Mets took Ike Davis, who rewarded them with a 32 HR, 90 RBI campaign in 2012.  They also selected Kirk Nieuwenhuis (3rd […]

MMO Flashback: Reason #17 To Retire Keith Hernandez’s Number

Keith Hernandez was the heart and soul of the 1980s Mets teams that went from languishing at the bottom of the National League East to winning two division titles and a World Series championship.  The former first baseman was a leader both on and off the field, and was given the captain’s “C” to honor […]

R.A. Dickey vs. Gio Gonzalez: The Stats You Didn’t Know

R.A. Dickey.  Gio Gonzalez.  Both pitchers are gunning for the Cy Young Award.  Only one will get it (assuming we don’t have a tie a la the 1979 NL MVP vote that got Keith Hernandez a co-MVP Award). You can go to any site and find comparisons between the two.  Anyone will tell you that […]

As Good As David Wright Is, He’s Not Chipper Jones

I am a David Wright fan.  I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004.  I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays.  I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at […]

R.A. Dickey, 20-Game Winners, And Losing Teams

On Saturday, R.A. Dickey pitched seven strong innings to defeat the Houston Astros by the final score of 3-1.  In doing so, Dickey improved his record to 16-4.  Despite the win, the Mets are still 11 games under .500 with a 58-69 mark. A few weeks ago on my Mets site (Studious Metsimus, for those […]

Finally, Jonathon Niese Gets It Together

Jonathon Niese was drafted by the Mets in the seventh round of the 2005 amateur draft.  Niese was good, but not great in the minors, winning 11 games in each minor league season from 2006 to 2008 and averaging nearly a strikeout per inning.  But his ERA was just under 4.00 and he averaged over […]

Chasing Mets History: Daniel Murphy

At first glance, one look at the title of this piece might elicit a sarcastic chuckle or a roll of the eyes.  After all, what could Daniel Murphy possibly do to make Mets history?  Well, it’s not just what he’s already done that’s historical in the Mets universe.  It’s also what he’s poised to do.

It’s Not Just This Year That R.A. Dickey Has Been Great

With Sunday’s win against Arizona, R.A. Dickey improved his season record to 14-2.  He threw seven strong innings, striking out eight and allowing one unearned run, which dropped his ERA on the year to 2.83.  Clearly, Dickey has been phenomenal this year.  But Dickey has been outstanding throughout his entire Mets career.  In fact, he […]

A Look Inside The Rise And Fall of Johan Santana

How the mighty have fallen.  Johan Santana, whose bounceback campaign hit an unexpected high on June 1 when he threw the franchise’s first no-hitter, has not only come back to Earth, but he’s done it in a way no one could see coming. Through his first 11 starts of the season, which ended with the […]

Sandy Alderson Can’t “Duquette” Out For Help This Year

Eight years ago, the Mets came out of the All-Star Break with a win against the Philadelphia Phillies in extra innings.  Although they were only two games above .500 at the time, the Mets were in the thick of a tight four-team race in the National League East, with one game separating the Braves (46-42), […]
