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, [...]
On Wednesday evening I had the pleasure and privilege of interviewing current Milwaukee Brewers relief pitcher, Seth McClung. Now before I begin, I’d just like to express my gratitude to him not only for doing the interview but also for his speedy responses. For the past few weeks all the buzz around baseball has been focused on Hot Stove talk. So I figured why not change things up a bit and talk to a player [...]
Bart Hubbuch of the NY Post was gracious enough to honor our request to answer a few reader submitted questions for us. He does an excellent job of covering the Mets all year long and is a valuable source of information both in the regular season and the hot stove season as well. I hope you enjoy what I believe is a great read on another slow Mets news day. Enjoy… Last off season, Omar Minaya [...]

On behalf of everyone at Mets Merized Online we would like to take some time to remember and honor all of our brave servicemen and women that have served and continue to serve our country. Each Veteran’s day we have an opportunity to recognize the amazing people who make up the greatest military in the world.

I just finished reading Michael Shapiro’s very good baseball book, Bottom of the Ninth. This book focuses on the efforts of Branch Rickey, William Shea, and other would be baseball owners, and their efforts to get major league baseball (the owners) to allow major league expansion. A secondary, and probably unneeded storyline focuses on Yankee manager Casey Stengel’s final years with the Yankees. The book covers the time span from when the Dodgers and Giants [...]
Former Mets pitching coach (and new Brewers pitching coach) Rick Peterson, was kind enough to answer some questions for me last week, and he gave me some candid thoughts on several topics we discussed including pitch counts, minimum innings pitched in the minors, the Verducci Effect, and of course the Mets. What was your favorite Mets moment? In this clip, Rick discusses his friendship with Willie Randolph, and how special it was to get within one [...]
Last week I had the great pleasure of speaking with former Mets pitching coach, Rick Peterson. Since leaving the Mets, Rick has gone on to found and establish 3P Sports, a company that is dedicated to serving the amateur market and enable baseball players to avoid injury and improve their performance. Rick Peterson is one of the most foremost experts in the country when it comes to peak performance coaching. He has dedicated a lifetime to developing [...]
This weekend, Jerry Manuel was kind enough to answer a couple of questions that were submitted to Mets Merized Online by one of our readers. Dave Ponte spoke with Jerry and asked him: MMO - Do you address each and every fundamental mistake you see with each player after/during each game to ensure that it does not happen again, or is it just part of the game learning experience? JM - They are addressed at some point that we [...]
On Friday, we were fortunate enough to ask Angel Pagan a few questions while the Mets were taking batting practice at Citi Field. David Ponte did a superb job covering the Mets for us that day on the field and from the press box. He had to do some quick thinking as most of the questions we sent him off with were for some other players we had been targeting. He did a fine job, and was [...]
MMO has learned that first baseman Nick Evans will be one of several Mets that will be playing winter ball this off season. David Ponte met up with Evans this past weekend and asked him what his plans were for the off season. Q- What positives if any can you take from this season? A – I think it’s definitely a good learning experience for everybody to go through struggles like this. Hopefully we [...]
