Mark Simon of ESPN and ESPN New York, was kind enough to answer a few questions for me about a variety of Mets topics. Mark is ESPN’s Baseball Research Specialist and does a fine job providing Mets fans and bloggers with great detailed information that you don’t find anywhere else regarding the Mets. He is one of several Mets historians working at ESPN, and he had some very interesting responses to my questions. And no… I didn’t [...]
About two weeks ago, I emailed some questions to our friends at Mets Prospect Hub. After much deliberation, here are the responses I got back from David and Tejesh, the guys behind their great blog. They did a nice job. The two of them do an amazing job covering the Mets minors both during the regular and offseason. 1. Where do you rank the Mets Minor League System on a scale of 1-10 in the following areas: [...]
It’s rare to write about Major League Baseball – the New York Mets specifically – and not fall into the usual daily depressing nitpicking, the armchair quarterbacking, that the organization seems to have provided it’s loyal fans the last few years. The New York Mets are certainly a sports writers dream considering that they are rarely boring – if anything else. Occasionally though , we find ourselves lucky to come across someone with an idea [...]
Here are some questions I asked of Mets beat writer, Brian Costa of The Star Ledger, during his live chat yesterday. Joe D: Will Bobby Parnell get lost in a numbers game and start the season in Buffalo? Will he ever revert back to starting as opposed to relief? Brian Costa: I don’t think he’s in danger of not making the team, but in that bullpen right now, nothing is certain. He may one day [...]
Here’s a great Q&A I did with William Price of the Daily News, better known to all of you as The Bitter Bill. Bill was nice enough to answer some questions for us about the upcoming Mets season as well as some other things orange and blue. I’ve been a longtime follower of his blog, and you should be too, otherwise you wouldn’t have to miss gems like this little nugget he had in this mornings [...]
Early last week, I was chatting with one of our readers (BayonneMetsFan) in our newly renovated MMO Chat Room. Somehow, we ended up talking about Bryan Hoch’s Mets Online. For those of you who don’t know, Mets Online was probably the first Mets fan site that there ever was. Back when the internet was just scratching the surface of what it would eventually become, thousands of Mets fans like myself would flock each day to Mets Online to get the [...]
Ok so the title of my post maybe a bit deceiving, no this feature will not last 80 days, but I thought it would be a cool project to go around the league and connect with bloggers from the other 29 MLB teams and have them weigh in on their teams. For my first stop of the tour, I check in with Daniel Moroz, founder of Camden Crazies, which is an excellent blog dedicated to [...]
A few weeks ago I was granted the opportunity to ask former Mets outfielder and ESPN analyst Brian McRae a few questions regarding his time in New York and what he is currently up to now. As many will recall McRae spend parts of three seasons in Flushing during which time he hit roughly .250, which is lower than his career average of .261. During his time with the Mets, McRae played under Bobby Valentine [...]
This past week, New York Mets beat writer, Brian Costa, of the Star Ledger was kind enough to allow me to submit to him questions regarding Mets Hot Stove rumors. To obtain the questions I scoured the forums, as well as the chat room here at Mets Merized to try to come up with the best and most frequently asked questions regarding the team’s future. I’m confident that this interview will give you, the fans, [...]
