Alderson Speaks Out About Mets Financials, 2012, Wright, More…

Sandy Alderson, my god, appeared today on Fox Business to discuss a myriad of Mets financial and offseason issues. CLAMAN: Well, you say you’re in charge of looking at everything that’s on the field. David Wright’s on the field. Will you fight to keep him, at least? ALDERSON: Yes, I think David’s going to be with us […]

Ike Davis Should Be Untouchable For The Mets!

Yes, I know the arguments, “Mets are in a rebuilding mode” and nobody should be untouchable. For the most part you would be right, not many players on this team should be untouchable. Ike Davis however does not fall into that category. If there is one player on this team that we all should be […]

The Mets’ Great Depression Era

The Mets’ Great Depression Era

What is it about the last ten years of Mets baseball that makes so many Met fans resistant to change it? What is so extraordinary about the last decade that make so many reluctant to let it go? I keep hearing and reading that these same fans who are opposed to change, are only interested in winning […]

MMO Mets Top 20 Prospects – #4 Jenrry Mejia, RHP

When the Mets signed RHP Jenrry Mejia as an IFA out of the Dominican Republic, in 2007, they knew they were getting a diminutive 17-year-old, with an electric fastball. He was brought along slowly with his innings pitched, so as not to damage this tender young thoroughbred. He needed to be babied, while his body […]

What Do The Mets Do When The Young Guns Are Ready?

Right now as presently constituted the Mets starting rotation is fairly solid. Santana, Dickey, Pelfrey, Niese and Gee are a decent 1-5, but the question to me is, what do you do when the young guns are ready? The Mets initially wanted to retain Capuano, but that became out of the question when he wanted a two […]

Blue Jays Like Niese, Could Be Great Trade Partner

An article by posted on December 12, 2011 0 Comments

Last week during the baseball’s Winter Meeting’s news surfaced that the Mets were guaging interest in Jon Niese. At a time when players like Gio Gonzalez are being heavily sought after in a weak LHP market, Niese could prove valuable. One of the teams believed to be interested is the Toronto Blue Jays. And why […]

Meet The Newest Met, Andres Torres

Here’s a pretty cool video of the player who will be patrolling centerfield for the Mets in 2012, Andres Torres. I believe fans are going to love this guy. Nobody will mistake Torres for Carlos Beltran, but defensively he will get the job done better than most, and if he returns to his 2010 levels offensively, that Pagan trade looks like […]

Jon Garland Fits The Alderson Mold

An article by posted on December 10, 2011 0 Comments

It’s no secret the Mets have been penny pinching this offseason. Between the slew of minimal contracts we’ve offered and the lack of any offer to Jose Reyes, it is evident that Sandy Alderson and the front office are examining the bargain bin rather than the premium shelf to construct this team for 2012. Despite […]

Mets Will Need Fast Start In 2012 Or It Will Be A Long Summer

Jose Reyes has left for Miami, and we wish him nothing but success. It’s time now to prepare for life without Reyes and look ahead to the 2012 season. In 2012, the Mets cannot sleep-walk through the month of April, they’ll need to leave spring training ready for serious baseball action and get off to […]

Pudge Would Bring a Veteran Presence to the Mets

CBS Sports MLB Insider, Jon Heyman, tweeted yesterday that Ivan Rodriguez is working out to get ready for the new season, and he believes that the Mets could be interested in Pudge’s services. The Mets have been lacking a veteran catcher for the past several years (since Paul Lo Duca, or Brian Schneider).  At the right […]
