It is pretty clear that everyone believes Ike Davis’ bat is hurting this team. Admittedly the last guy you want to see come up to the plate with men on base in an important situation is Ike Davis. And no one can deny this is true. Many are supporting sending him down to the Minors because he is holding this team back… Which begs the question…Holding this team back from what? Has he held us […]
Update 12:18 Andres Torres had a big night offensively, but he credited the pitching staff for their stellar performances lately. “Pitching is a big key for winning games, and all our pitchers are terrific.” He thinks tonight was his best offensive game as a Met. He’s not focused on being in first place right now, since it’s still so early. Torres was a home run shy of the cycle. I asked him if he was […]
I caught up with St. Lucie Mets infielder Danny Muno during St. Lucie’s off-day on Sunday. The St. Lucie Mets lead the Florida State League’s Southern Division by 9.0 games right now with a 28-8 record. We only had a few minutes for a quick couple of questions, but I thought you might find it interesting none-the-less. Here’s what we had time for: Petey: Hey Danny, what are some of the toughest things about playing […]
The phone rang, and it was Mets RHP Matt Budgell who was relaxing with some of the other players in their hotel room at Port St. Lucie after completing their Tuesday workouts at extended spring training. Matt was the Mets 10th round pick in last years MLB draft, and was nice enough to spend a little time answering questions for all of us here at MMO. We spoke for about twenty minutes as Matt told me how […]
With Josh Thole going on the new 7-day DL with a concussion, Mike Nickeas will get a chance to show what he’s got as an everyday backstop over the next week. This is a wide open opportunity for Nickeas, who has never been known for much more than an above-average arm and a good clubhouse guy. After being drafted by the Rangers in the fifth round of the 2004 draft, Nickeas worked his way up to Double-A […]
SNY analyst Bobby Ojeda came down HARD on the Mets new philosophy at the plate with regard to heir approach at the plate during tonight’s Mets pre-game show. For those that missed it, Ojeda ripped into what he called “this business of taking so many pitches” that the organization has forced the players to adopt. It started like this after Carlin shifted the conversation to the struggling Mets offense: Chris Carlin: Are we starting to […]
(click any photo to embiggen) Last week I published the first half of the MMO Exclusive interview I conducted with Buffalo Bisons manager Wally Backman. Wally was kind enough to sit down and answer some questions about his current team. He was very candid about which of his AAA players he feels, are working themselves into consideration for big league time with the Mets this season. At times while talking to Wally about managing his […]
