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 [...]
While on my trip to Binghamton I had the chance to interview Mako Oliveras manager of the B-Mets. He was a great guy to talk to, and based on what players have to say about him he’s a great manager. Will Sommer: How did you begin your coaching career in minor league baseball? Mako Oliveras: I signed in 1968 with the Red Sox and ever since then I’ve been in baseball Will Sommer: For how [...]
The other night in Binghamton I had the chance to interview Josh Thole, who is expected to get the call up to the majors when rosters expand September 1st. Thole has struggled with the bat in August but still has a .324 batting average, with 32 XBH. Even though he lacks power, my belief while watching him take his at-bats, is that he will be a quality everyday catcher in the majors. Will Sommer: Have [...]
In honor of the anniversary of the 1969 Miracle Mets we created some special graphics to honor some of the stars of that magical team. We also dug up a couple of images that will stir your heart and revive your Mets spirit. We love the Mets. It must have been magic that summer! We just designed this Tom Seaver graphic today and unleashed it just in time for tonight’s festivities. Tom Seaver is forever young [...]

Adam Rubin of the Daily News was kind enough to answer a few questions for Mets Merized Online. It’s been a hectic week as far as Mets news goes, and I wanted to get his thoughts on the Halladay situation, Carlos Beltran’s bone bruise, the shift in our top prospects, and other Mets concerns. 1. According to a report by Jon Heyman, Omar Minaya rejected a trade that would have landed Roy Halladay in exchange for prospects; [...]
