There’s really nothing worse than a meaningless September. That’s probably how most fans of other teams feel, but for me a meaningless September in New York right now is about the worst thing you can possibly have. K-Rod & Beltran I don’t want to hear excuses about K-Rod or Beltran being traded. I am sorry they had to go, it would have been great if they were a part of a championship team, but the [...]
Today, we begin what we hope to be a regular segment on MetsMerizedOnline.com. A segment we’ve decided to name “MMO: Fair or Foul” Each new segment will showcase two of MMO’s very own writers up against one another. Don’t worry, if you the avid MMO reader want to get involved, you’ll get an opportunity as well (see very end for details)! Each contributor will receive 5 questions, which they are then asked to answer in [...]
As somebody who’s first blog on this website was a full out defense of Omar Minaya following the Adam Rubin debacle, I thought I’d weigh in on the most recent excuse to try and paint Minaya as some genius that one day we will all look back on and thank. First of all, I don’t want to know, nor do I care about your politics. However, I feel like I heard the same sentence the [...]
As every game still does count, its difficult to not think about the future of the Mets. I’m confident that Alderson is concentrating on the farm system enough, but I am soon looking to see what he can do to make the 2012 Mets a competitive team. Don’t forget there is a CHANCE an extra wildcard team is added. This makes things pretty interesting (even though I’m not in favor of it happening). I think [...]
At 55-51, the New York Mets are playing their best baseball of the 2011 season. This is without Carlos Beltran or Frankie Rodriguez. Two players that when they were dealt, some claimed this was a white flag from management. There are two sides to Ya Gotta Believe in 2011. To me, I enjoy watching this team very much. In fact, I probably haven’t enjoyed watching a Mets team this much since 2005 or 2006. (2006 [...]
This off-season there was a lot of excitement around the Rule 5 selections of both Brad Emaus and Pedro Beato. The excitement on my end came because many written opinions out there seemed to think Emaus was ready to compete for the starting job at 2B. Seeing as the Mets didn’t have a sure thing, what’s not to like about that? With regards to Pedro Beato, I think we all fell in love with him [...]
Just about 40 minutes ago, Ted Berg posted an updated blog in which he makes a brief case for the Mets to inquire about Ubaldo Jiminez. First of all, Jiminez is 27 years old, before he throws a pitch next year he will turn 28. His contract next year would pay him $4.2 million, then $5.75 million and lastly $8 million in 2014. His 2013 and 2014 contracts are team options. I find it strange [...]
The most frustrating part about being a Mets fan lately is that every single decision seems to draw a line in the sand. You’re either with Sandy, or against him. Moves that would have seemed meaningless or worth the gamble such as signing Chris Young to a small contract are seen as reasons to complain about Alderson’s tactics. The Mets have to cut a high priced 2B, and because of that they have no real [...]
Yesterday’s trade wasn’t really about the two players to be named later. It was about the fact this team needed to get away from the $17.5 million contract that Francisco Rodriguez would likely earn if he stayed in New Yorkmuch longer. I understand the people who want a closer to be with this team until we know for sure where the Mets stand. Truthfully though, paying a declining closer more money than your current starting [...]
