David Wright: Curtis Instantly Makes Us A Better Team

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Where Curtis Granderson will fit in with the New York Mets outfield is still to be determined, David Wright has no doubt he does fit with his team. Granderson is penciled in to hit fourth behind Wright, giving him the protection he hasn’t had since Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado were here. Manager Terry Collins doesn’t know which of the […]

Hold The Champagne

We’re all such Mets fans. Give us the smallest spark of hope, the tiniest roster change, one decent WHIP, or a great year two or three seasons in the past for an aging player, and we’re practically giddy with excitement.

It Would Be A Mistake If Lagares Is The Odd Man Out

It’s something that is asked of me more and more in the last three weeks; will Juan Lagares lose any playing time or even his starting job in center field in light of the Mets new outfield additions? I’d always thought there was no chance that anyone would supplant Lagares in center, but I began […]

MMO Mailbag: What If Mets Find Cash In Stocking?

Adam asks… Let’s just say the Mets move Ike Davis and Daniel Murphy, because for whatever reason they seem to believe Lucas Duda can be the long term answer at first base. (That’s a complaint for a whole other time) This should clear up some cash, but what do the Mets do with that cash? […]

MMO Exclusive: David Wright Can Deal With The Pressure

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – David Wright told me yesterday how much Curtis Granderson will mean to the New York Mets on the field and in the clubhouse. One thing Wright will never admit is, as team captain, whether he ever felt he was drained by being “the man’’ and if Granderson would alleviate pressure. Doing so would admit […]

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – Who knew? The New York Mets were straight with us when they said they weren’t finished as they announced the signing of Bartolo Colon today to a two-year, $20-million contract. Just like that, the Mets addressed a massive hole in their rotation. Should the 40-year-old Colon pitch anything like he did last year […]

Mets Will Meet With Agents For John Axford and Kevin Gregg

According to Jim Duquette of MLB Network, the Mets will meet with the agents for free agent relievers John Axford and Kevin Gregg. I’m not such a big fan of Axford, but I do like Gregg a lot for the Mets and he’s a proven shutdown, late-inning reliever we can use. Axford, 30, posted a 4.02 ERA and […]
