MMO Mailbag: Boston’s Mookie Betts Instead Of Yoenis Cespedes?

Gabriel asks… What would it take to acquire Mookie Betts from Boston? I like the idea of getting him much more than the Mets going for Yoenis Cespedes. For a kid his size (5’9″, 155 lbs), there’s a lot of power there while he has room to fill out, and he would fill a need […]

MMO Exclusive: Dillon Gee Discusses Pitching, Outfield Defense, Having A Solid Bullpen

A couple weeks ago, I reached out to Mets pitcher Dillon Gee for an interview, and Dillon was kind enough to let me do an online Q&A with him. Gee had the 7th-lowest ERA in baseball from the end of May 2013 to the time at which he was placed on the DL in May 2014. […]
