Last night on the MLB Network, Jon Heyman said that the Mets won’t go after Padres’ first baseman Adrian Gonzalez because they have Ike Davis waiting in the wings. Strange, because only a couple of days earlier he tweeted that the Mets would be contacting the Padres about Adrian Gonzalez according to a baseball executive. Does this qualify as a split verdict? Also, I loved his choice of words… “Ike Davis waiting in the wings”. […]
Yesterday, Adam Rubin of the Daily News reported that the Mets have some interest in free agent pitcher Joel Pineiro. The Mets, in search of an innings-eater to stabilize their rotation, are particularly intrigued by free-agent righthander Joel Pineiro, according to a team insider. Pineiro, 31, had 15 wins with the Cardinals in 2009, one shy of the career high he set with Seattle six years earlier. While tossing a career-high 214 innings, Pineiro produced […]
Let me begin by saying that you’ll get no argument from me as to who is the superior starting pitcher between Roy Halladay and John Lackey. Obviously, it’s Halladay and it’s not even close. If Doc was pitching for a high powered offense like the Yankees, he may have been a 25 game winner this season, and the one before that, and the one before that too. He is a tremendous talent who is worthy […]
The New York Mets will open their 2010 Spring Training on Tuesday, March 2 against the Atlanta Braves at 1:10 p.m. at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie, Fla.

March 2: Atlanta Braves in Port St. Lucie, 1:10 p.m. March 3: Atlanta Braves in Disney, 1:05 p.m. March 4: St. Louis Cardinals in Port St. […]
Happy Birthday to Number 41, George Thomas Seaver! Tom Seaver celebrates his 65th birthday today, and I wanted to thank him for all the amazin’ memories he has given Mets fans in the last five decades. Even today, when Tom graces us with an appearance in the broadcast booth or in an on the field celebration, he still charms us with the same style, charisma and class he had when he was one of the most intimidating and dominating […]
This weekend, some of the Mets blogosphere were busy opining the Mets potential pursuit of either Carl Crawford or Curt Granderson, both of whom were rumored to be candidates for trades. Both rumors have since been shot down, but that’s how the rumor mill works sometimes. News can turn on a dime. On this slow Mets news day, for the sake of entertainment, let us assume that both these players are available. Which of them would […]
As you may have heard, Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post reported that rightfielder Jeff Francoeur will return to the Mets and speculated that Minaya may even sign him to an extension, something that Minaya previously alluded to last month. You can imagine the uproar all over the Mets blogosphere as they react to such devastating news. Luckily, the Mets don’t concern themselves with such mindless mutterings, and instead did exactly what they needed to do. The […]
AT&T has debuted a new national television advertisement this week for their 3G Network that features the Mets AAA affiliate, the Buffalo Bisons. The 30-second spot is already airing nationwide. The new commercial is about a fictional player named Carl Schaus who has just been promoted to the Buffalo Bisons and is trying to race to the ballpark in time for his first road game. Schaus uses his AT&T phone to get faster directions for his taxi […]
It looks like Wally Backman will indeed be managing the Brooklyn Cyclones in 2010. It had already been reported three weeks ago by Adam Rubin, that Backman would be managing one of the Single-A teams for the Mets, but which one had not yet been determined. Yesterday, Dora Licastri, long time friend of MMO, and Port St. Lucie native, reported on her Facebook Mets Rumor Mill that Wally Backman would manage the Brooklyn Cyclones and Edgar Alfonzo would […]
