You know, Joe and I briefly discussed this last week and as days go by I think about it more and more. In my sports fan life, I have the teams I cheer for passionately. We are all Mets fans, but for me, I also cannot stand the Philadelphia Phillies, NY Yankees, Boston Red Sox (went to school surrounded by annoying Sox fans), and the Atlanta Braves. That is in order too. However, something has […]
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Opening Day was today (although nobody really noticed), and it’s time to go on the record with some predictions. The MLB season to me, is the hardest to predict. You cannot really predict injuries, and anything can happen over the course of 6 months. However, it’s always fun to try right? Now that things are starting to settle, I feel I have a better idea of what […]
Jayson Stark of ESPN grabbed my attention this morning when he posted this chart showing how Toronto Blue Jays’ phenom Brett Lawrie, stacked up against some of the all time greats with his .953 OPS last season. That’s some pretty amazing company and at 22 years old, Brett Lawrie is ready to explode onto the scene as one of the game’s brightest stars and best offensive players. Since 1900, only a dozen other players have […]
They are still talking about adding an extra wild card , but it won’t end there. The one-game playoff is bound to drag on to three games, then five …. I realize the old format will never be again, but the more you add to the playoff format the more the sport is diluted. The season drags on long enough as it is and this won’t help matters. What if there’s two teams vying for […]
During Spring Training some of the best young prospects in the New York Mets system will get their chance to play with the major leaguers and show off what they can do. There are a fair amount of Mets fans who know quite a bit about our top prospects, but for those who don’t MMO is pleased to bring you an interview with one of the most respected experts on baseball prospects and minor league baseball. […]
As all have you have seen in virtually every major media news outlet, Ryan Braun won his appeal of his positive PEDs test, lifting the 50-game suspension that was looming over him all winter, the first time any player has ever done so. Being such major news, we thought we’d have a few MMO staff members give their two cents on what they think of Braun’s beating the system and the fallout from this entire […]
My buddy Mack Ade from Mack’s Mets shot an arrow into the air, and this is what happened… Mack – I have designated you as one of the “Lords of Baseball”. Well, at least you’re one of mine. The question… what two teams will play in the 2012 World Series? Jason Parks, Baseball Prospectus – Boston Red Sox vs. San Francisco Giants Joe D., Mets Merized Online – Hi Mack, I always wanted to be […]
Ronald Blum of the Denver Post reported yesterday that commissioner Bud Selig expects baseball to expand its playoffs this season. “I really believe we’ll have the wild card for 2012, this year,” Selig said Friday night in Chicago at a White Sox fan festival. “Clubs really want it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an issue that the clubs want more than to have the extra wild card this year.” “We’re working on dates right now. […]
With Prince Fielder taking off for the Motor City, he becomes yet another premiere first baseman to leave the National League. Fielder now joins the likes of Albert Pujols and Adrian Gonzalez –to name a few– to leave for the AL in recent years. This leaves only Joey Votto, Lance Berkman and Ryan Howard as proven elite first baseman in the NL. Now 2012 will give this crop of young, talented men patrolling first, a […]
