A Case For Eduardo Nunez

With the Mets sitting precariously in third place, it is almost universally accepted that Sandy Alderson will have to swing a trade or make a signing to cement the Mets as legitimate contenders from an offensive perspective.  Sure the sixth-year General Manager brought in Jose Reyes and worked out Yulieski Gourriel, but let’s face it, […]

MMO Players Of The Week: Only The Loney & Robles Is More

The New York Mets opened up the week of June 19-25th with a crushing loss at the hands of Julio Teheran, who one-hit the Mets in a complete game shutout, winning 6-0. The Mets were swept by the Braves in that weekend series, scoring a total of only four runs at home. They dropped to […]

Wilmer, Weaver and Waving Goodbye to De Aza

From 2012 to 2014, Wilmer Flores hit over .300 in whichever level of the Mets minor league system he was in. In 2012 he hit .300 with 18 home runs and an .827 OPS at St. Lucie and Binghamton, two places notoriously known for being pitchers parks and leagues. He was a top 100 prospect […]

I’ll Be Rooting Hard For Michael Conforto

As you know by now, the New York Mets demoted struggling outfielder Michael Conforto to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, and promoted outfielder Brandon Nimmo to the big league team. After rocketing through the system last year and breaking out with 12 doubles, nine home runs and a 132 OPS+ in 56 games, things deteriorated […]

The Good, The Bad And De Aza

What a great night for the New York Mets who outlasted the Atlanta Braves in a thrilling 1-0 extra-innings win. The game itself was a classic pitching duel between two great young starters in Jacob deGrom and Julio Teheran. And it was former Brave Kelly Johnson who would provide the big hit – a clutch […]

Matt Reynolds Is Decent, Should Play More

The Mets bench has not been a pretty place for most of the past two seasons. It’s been riddled with sub-.200 hitters that belonged in AAA. So when Matt Reynolds started his big league career 3-for-19, it was only natural that he began to be lumped in with the likes of Danny Muno, Eric Campbell […]

Why Haven’t The Mets Turned To Dilson Herrera

There appears to be two very different views of Mets second base prospect Dilson Herrera. The first is the player who absolutely rakes in the minors hitting .310/.362/.504 over two seasons at Triple-A Las Vegas.  This is the player the Mets see as their second baseman of the future – a future that was supposed to […]

MMO Fan Shot: Signing Reyes Is More Than A PR Issue

MMO Fan Shot by Andy Love, Originally Published on Fair and Unbalanced In 2006, the Mets were one pitch away — albeit, a nasty, possibly unhittable Adam Wainwright curveball (that Carlos Beltran watched for strike three with the bases loaded, but I digress) – from making the World Series.  That team was led by two of the game’s […]

3 Up 3 Down: Mets Sweep Two Game Series Against WS Foe

3 Up 1. The Bullpen Coming into the opener on Tuesday night against the Royals, the Mets bullpen never could have anticipated the relief they would have to provide in it. Just four pitches into the game, starter Bartolo Colon took a ball right back at him, hitting him in the thumb. Colon would have […]

1986 Mets vs 2016 Mets: Was Strawberry Right?

An MMO Fan Shot by Carl Aridas In a recent interview, featured here on Metsmerized Online, Mets’ great Darryl Strawberry stated that the 2016 NY Mets couldn’t compare to the 1986 Mets team that won the World Series.  Given that the 1986 anniversary celebration just passed at Shea, errr Citi Field, I wondered whether Darryl was […]
