With reports that the Mets do not expect they will be able to re-sign Yoenis Cespedes, the question is how do you replace the irreplaceable? Here are some options: FREE AGENTS Carlos Gomez As explained in an earlier MMO article, a rejuvenated Gomez could help the Mets by continuing to play a good center field […]
Today was supposed to be the deadline that MLB Commissioner Bud Selig finalized the plans to expand the playoff structure to include two wild card teams. However, scheduling and logistics remain areas open for debate, which has halted the process. Still, if MLB agrees to expand the postseason, it increases each team’s chances by one […]
Last night at the 32nd Annual Thurman Munson Awards Dinner in New York, Daniel Murphy told reporters that expectations for the Mets this season are to make the playoffs. “Expectations for us this year are like any other. We expect to go to the playoffs.” His thoughts on Terry Collins seeing him batting in the leadoff spot: […]
On this, the 50th anniversary of the Mets, I am sure they’ll have a better record than their founding fathers, but not have much better odds of success. The ultimate success is defined by winning the World Series, followed by reaching the playoffs, winning your division, then finishing over .500. Realistically, a lot of things […]
Here’s an interesting question that was posed to Anthony DiComo who does a pretty good job in his reply. I just watched Brad Lidge sign a one-year contract for $1 million with the Nationals. I watched the Mets sign Frank Francisco to a much larger contract. If money is so tight, why go the direction […]
I was reading this great article by CBS Sports’ Rich Countinho asking if Mike Pelfrey can bounce back for the Mets this season. Countinho stated that in order for Pelfrey to bounce back for the Mets this year, he needs to go back to his “old” roots. I agree with Rich because the old way […]
If you had asked me twelve months ago if the Wilpons should sell the Mets, I’d have been pretty emphatic in my support. In the six months that followed, new reports surfaced describing the debt the Mets were in and it seemed that number grew by $100 million from each report to the next. The […]
This comes from VisualCocaine on Tumblr. It looks like a post apocalyptic vision of Fred Wilpon’s worst nightmare. I could just imagine a mob of flesh-starved zombies wearing Phillies jerseys roaming around aimlessly looking for any surviving Met fans to devour. Seriously though, it’s pretty cool, scary yes, but still cool.
With Carlos Beltran leaving the Mets via trade and then signing with the Cardinals, there appears to be a lot of nostalgia going around about his career. In fact, it seems lately that Carlos Beltran and “Hall of Fame,” have been seen together in several discussions with Mets fans. Personally, I think the Hall of […]
REALITY BITES! I guess seeing is believing, and this image certainly brings home the realization that Jose Reyes is now the shortstop for the Miami Marlins. Nice airbrush job by Topps… I’d like to thank Mr. North Jersey for the link and also credit to the Palm Beach Post for the image.
Pitchers and catchers report to St. Lucie in three weeks and where is the sense of optimism that comes with the approaching baseball season? In the past three years the Mets entered spring training without realistic hope save wishing they could muster a competitive season to keep their dwindling fan base interested and enthused. This […]
