Mets Batting Order Preview

Spring training is for a lot of things, but I thought I’d save Terry Collins time and suggest a batting order for him. Several slots will automatically fall into place, but where Collins will do his most head scratching will be over the leadoff position. 1. Juan Lagares, CF: He has the speed and at […]

MMO Mailbag: When Will We See Syndergaard?

Alex asks… What has to happen before we can see Noah Syndergaard join the rotation assuming he’s dominating in Las Vegas through May? I’m concerned Dillon Gee is still here plus we’d have to still make room for him in the rotation regardless. By the way, I think giving Bartolo Colon that second year was […]

Mets Should Start Considering Extensions For Some Players

History has shown us the best way, and most economical, is to build from within and complement your core with free-agent signings and trades. The Mets have a young, but largely unproven core of talent outside of David Wright. I wrote the other day how the Mets should consider extending Lucas Duda if he duplicates […]

A Mets Owner For The Ages

The Mets posted on Twitter this morning, that on this date in 1903, Mets co-founder and the first female owner in Major League Baseball, Joan Whitney Payson, was born. One SNY feature, the only one I consider to be worth watching, is Mets Yearbook. In one particular episode, the year was 1963, they showed the […]

Keep Dillon Gee As A Reliever?

You can never have too much pitching. Unless you are the Mets apparently. With a growing crop of young arms, the Mets enter the 2015 season with a good problem to have.

MMO Fan Shot: An Evening With Sandy Alderson

An MMO Fan Shot by Matt Stephens In 2013 the Mets hosted an event where you could ask Sandy Alderson questions. It was pretty lame. It was right in the midst of the Michael Bourn saga, and every question was about that. It wasn’t fun. This time around I think things went a little better. […]

Pitching to the Defense

A lot of consideration is made on how a pitcher performs independent of his defense.

Therefore, statistics are calculated […]
