Giving Ruben Tejada A Shot At Redemption

I was on the phone the other day with a friend who is a die-hard Met fan like the rest of us. We got around to talking about the addition of Chris Young and we argued about the signing which he absolutely loved, but me not so much. He brings up all the what-if scenarios […]

Featured Post: I’d Rather Have Syndergaard

Speculation is the fuel that stokes the Hot Stove fires. As the fires of speculation simmer in Met land, sometimes during the off-season it’s easy for Met fans to forget there’s another major league baseball team sharing NYC with pinstriped baseball fans surmising what baseball in 2014 will look like in the Bronx. Recently, those […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 22 Jeff Walters, RHP

22. Jeff Walters Height: 6’3” Weight: 170 lbs. Age: 26 Bats/Throws: Right/Right To say Jeff Walters made a name for himself this season would be an understatement. He came out of nowhere to have one of the best seasons for a reliever on any Mets minor league affiliate. Walters posted a fantastic 2.09 ERA and […]

Those Amazin’ Mets: Dave Kingman, OF/1B

Dave Kingman was one of the most fascinating players in Mets’ history. Because he played in one of the Mets’ major down periods – the mid ‘70’s to early ‘80’s, you  don’t hear his name mentioned much in Mets’ retrospectives, but for a while, he was clearly the Mets’ biggest star and one of their […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 23 Cory Mazzoni, RHP

23. Cory Mazzoni Height: 6’1” Weight: 190 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Right/Right There’s speculation that Cory Mazzoni could make the big league team out of spring training because the Mets have failed to add much depth in the bullpen to this point. It is more than likely that he will be apart of the bullpen […]

Where’s Our Tom Seaver Statue?

Is there anything better than going to your hometown ballpark and seeing all those bronze statues of iconic players or managers who meant so much to the team and more importantly, to the fans? Back in 2009, during the inaugural season at Citi Field, there was an uproar among the fan base because many of […]

2014 Mets Top Prospects: No. 24 Juan Centeno, C

24. Juan Centeno Height: 5’10” Weight: 170 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Left/Right Juan Centeno is the best defensive catcher the Mets have in the organization so it looks as if his future role will be to backup Travis d’Arnaud. He’s more valuable than he seems because catchers generally start less games than any position on […]

Jim Callis Very High On Travis d’Arnaud

Travis d’Arnaud has long been regarded as baseball’s top catching prospect since first appearing on Baseball America’s Top 100 back in 2010. The Phillies’ 2007 first-round pick has already seen himself traded twice in a deal to acquire a reigning Cy Young Award winner and expectations for him have always been high. Now the property of […]

A Satin and Davis Platoon At First Base Could Prove Very Productive

Kenny asks… Let’s say the Mets don’t trade Ike Davis and he’s with the team come Spring Training, does it mean that Josh Satin is out of a job? Joe D. replies… There’s still plenty of time for the Mets to trade Davis, but let’s assume they end up keeping him. My hunch is that […]

MMO Fan Shot: Is Baseball Too Long for Most Fans?

An MMO Fan Shot by Peter Miles Baseball is a classic sport that has often been called “America’s pastime”, and rightly so. Baseball fits right in with apple pie, fireworks on the Fourth of July, and picnics in the summer. Many people still tune into baseball, but the younger generation is starting to tune out. What […]
