MMO Mets Top 20 Prospects – #3 Matt Harvey, RHP

The difference between the #2 and the #3 Top Mets Prospect is so small, you can’t even see it from here. You would need some extreme magnification to see the difference between these two players. And since someone has to be 3rd, I flipped a coin, of course I’m kidding, I studied long and hard. […]

Mets Sign Swingman Chuck James

On Tuesday, general manager Sandy Alderson said he wanted to add some rotation depth as insurance in case Johan Santana isn’t ready to start the season. He followed through on that today as the Mets signed veteran left-handed swingman Chuck James to a minor-league contract. James received an invitation to major-league camp. James, 30, worked […]

Mets Offseason Targets: LHP Hong-Chinh Kuo

I had a chance to check out all the players that were recently non tendered on Tuesday night and came up with a list of players that would seem like good potential targets for the Mets as the offseason wears on. Of course none of these players come without flaws or they wouldn’t have been […]

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

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?

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
