MMO Jose Reyes Prediction Contest – Win A Free Gift!

Never before has it seemed that one team’s future rests so much on whether one player signs with them, or chooses to sign with another team. Perhaps one could argue that Albert Pujols’ free agency has more of an impact on the St. Louis Cardinals, but I do not think many people are expecting Pujols […]

Good For Backman

I like that Wally Backman was finally offered the Mets’ Triple-A managerial job. It appeared Backman would take a bench coach job with Washington, which I said he should take because at the time the Mets didn’t offer him the Triple-A position. Well, the Mets did offer that job and it is good he stays […]

It is easy to recognize what losing Jose Reyes might mean to the Mets on the field: they would be without an impact leadoff hitter, steal threat and solid defensive shortstop. I’m on record as saying the Mets won’t be able to retain him and shouldn’t get reeled in on a long-term deal. In signing Reyes […]

David Wright Hasn’t Been The Same Since Matt Cain

Ever since Shea Stadium closed its doors for the final time in 2008, David Wright has not been the same player.  At least that’s what I hear from many Mets fans.  Although I do think the move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field has hurt Wright’s power stroke, I don’t think the ballpark is to […]

Yesterday, I read over Matt Cerrone’s post entitled, “What is a New York payroll?“. Great question, right? And one that is certainly worthy of debate, and I can’t wait to dig my teeth into this one. Cerrone’s piece was spurred on by a series of tweets by Adam Rubin who said the following: If Mets […]

We heard a lot about the Mets’ culture changing when Sandy Alderson was hired as GM and Terry Collins as manager. The atmosphere changed t0 a degree, but the Mets’ talent level remained roughly the same with once again, the pitching faltered and took the team down with it. Looking back on the season there […]

One of our readers, Deebo, comes up with a worthy Friday afternoon debate that has nothing to do with Jose Reyes, bricks and blue walls.

Pagan Has Priced Himself Out Of His Optimal Role

Yesterday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York was kind enough to answer a question for me during a chat which you can read in it’s entirety here. Joe D. – If the Mets are looking for a center fielder, is it safe to say Angel Pagan will be non-tendered? Adam Rubin - Team officials are definitely […]
