Do the Mets Trade Niese or Gee?

With an overflow of pitching projected in the 2015 season, Sandy Alderson will have some tough choices to make. The toughest of all could be which pitchers to keep and which pitchers to trade away. At the center of that debate are Jon Niese and Dillon Gee. The starters for the last two Mets opening […]

MMO Fan Shot: Cespedes Is The Answer

An MMO Fan Shot by Matt Stephens Since the trade of Carlos Beltran to the Giants, the Mets have noticeably been missing one key component from their lineup- the prototypical outfielder with a big bat.

Qualifying Offers Portend A Bleak Forecast For Mets

If Jennifer Garner really wants to know what’s in my wallet, I’d be very happy to get together with her so I can show her. But I warn you, Jenn, it’s not much… Kind of like Sandy Alderson’s wallet this offseason only not as drastic. After posting that the Qualifying Offer had risen to $15.3 […]

Mets Still Searching For Answers At Leadoff Spot

Of all the Mets’ off-season questions, the matter of their leadoff hitter is one of the most intriguing. That is especially if their intent is to fill it from within.

How Did Jacob deGrom Go From Relative Unknown To Head Of The Class?

Jacob deGrom did something that very few players are able to in this age of social media and constant connection. He flew under the radar. After Tommy John Surgery in 2011 cost him that entire season, he emerged in 2012 and pitched well in A and High-A, establishing a 2.43 ERA. While 2013 was an up […]

Jenrry Mejia Should NOT Be Our Closer In 2015

In a great post earlier this week, Harris Decker posed the question as to whether Jenrry Mejia should be traded this offseason. The readers were split on this notion with 51% saying yes and 49% saying no. The reasons justifying this move, according to Decker, are health and pitching depth. These are both very valid […]

The Importance Of Securing An Elite Catcher

Scarcity: the state of being scarce or in short supply. Scarcity is when you don’t have enough of something you really need, like clean socks and pomegranates – there never seem to be enough pomegranates around when you need them. Pomegranates are a damned delicious fruit … especially if you don’t mind seeds stuck in […]
