As it is looking more and more like a certainty that Mike Pelfrey will undergo Tommy John surgery and miss the rest of the 2012 season, it is time to wonder if the start that Pelfrey made on April 21 was the last time that we will see him in a New York Mets uniform. It seemed as if Pelfrey had figured things out through the early part of the year. He looked good in [...]
With the first weekend of the New York Mets’ season now in the books, there are certainly a number of things to be excited about. The team got off to a great start and they were able to sweep the division rival Atlanta Braves. Obviously, this was only three games and there is still a long season ahead, but there were a couple things that we learned from this series victory. Ruben Tejada’s glove is [...]
If the New York Mets are going to have any chance of finishing over .500 this season, then they are going to need to get a lot of outstanding performances from their starting pitchers. The Mets’ rotation is set entering the season, but they still have a number of questions about the health and abilities of their starters. It is very possible that the Mets’ rotation looks a lot different at the end of the [...]

There are a fair amount of Mets fans who know quite a bit about our top prospects, but for those who don’t MMO is pleased to bring you an interview with one of the most respected experts on baseball prospects and minor league baseball.

The New York Mets’ core has officially broken up with the news that Jose Reyes has gone to the Miami Marlins. Both Ken Rosenthal and Buster Olney have confirmed that the deal is done. It is a six-year deal worth $106 million. Seeing the final terms of the deal makes it much worse that the Mets let Reyes go, especially considering that he went to a team within their own division. There is a lot [...]
With the news that Jose Reyes and the Marlins are getting closer and closer to reaching a deal, it may become time to seriously consider what life for the New York Mets will be like without Jose Reyes. It is highly unlikely that Reyes or any other big name free agent will sign until the new CBA is in place, but the two sides could easily put together a deal that is just waiting to [...]
Who Got Passing Grades? Catchers Josh Thole .268/.345/.344, 3 HR, 40 RBI B- Thole did not develop as much as was expected offensively this year. He only scored 22 runs this season. Ronny Paulino .268/.312/.351, 2 HR, 19 RBI B- When he was healthy, it seemed as if Paulino was a good pick up for the Mets. Mike Nickeas .189/.246/.264, 1 HR, 6 RBI D Nickeas was not able to produce much offensively in the [...]
Sandy Alderson’s comments about the New York Mets not being able to spend this off-season did not make much sense. Why with the impending sale of a minority stake in the team would Alderson come out at the end of August and say that the Mets would not be big players in the free agent market this off-season? The answer to this question has become very clear. Dave Einhorn is not going to be buying [...]
The New York Mets have not given fans many reasons to watch them play this year. There have been moments where the team has looked great, but for the most part, the Mets have been a disappointment this season. As football season approaches, many fans may find no reasons to continue to follow the Mets. However, there are a number of reasons why fans should continue to keep up with the Mets into September. 1) [...]
The New York Mets have once again had to place Jose Reyes on the disabled list as a result of a hamstring strain. However, this bit of bad news for the team, may have at least one positve side effect to it. This scenario could actually be helpful for the Mets when you take a deeper look. It has been rumored that Reyes could get Carl Crawford money when he becomes a free agent this off-season. However, this [...]
It has been reported that New York Mets pitcher Johan Santana had undergone an examination that revealed that he was suffering fatigue in his surgically repaired left shoulder. Santana will not resume throwing until his symptoms subside. However, Santana will continue to exercise and do some other baseball activities.
