Trade Target: Jesus Flores

One player that Sandy Alderson should target this winter is Washington Nationals catcher, and former Met farmhand, Jesus Flores.

Ever since Darvish name really became well known in America scouts have been raving about his talents. I’ve heard people say he could very well be one […]

As I slowly get myself back into the mix here at MMO, I’m starting to realize there is an absolutely ridiculous campaign going on for the Mets to pursue C.J. Wilson in free agency. I think what bothers me the most about where our fan base is right now is the love affair with doing […]

From Left Field: Who Are You Rooting For This Postseason?

Well, as we all know, our beloved New York Mets have missed the playoffs for the fifth straight season. I’m not sure about many of you, but even with the Mets done for the year, I still watch a ton of postseason baseball. There have been some great games so far, and it’s looking like […]

Should The Mets Sign C.J. Wilson Instead Of Jose Reyes?

Looking over the stats, the Mets had one of the better offensive clubs in the National League, but also put together just about the worst pitching staff. With everyone speculating every which way to acquire pitching while re-signing Jose Reyes, I say: If the Mets really need pitching THAT badly -which they do-, why not let Reyes walk and sign C.J. Wilson instead? […]
