Thanks For A Wonderful Year!

I can’t believe we are at the end of yet another year at Mets Merized Online. 2011 was a wonderful year for our site as we continued to grow far beyond my wildest expectations. I only wish that our beloved Mets was experiencing the same success as we are currently enjoying, but I assure you […]

Last week during the baseball’s Winter Meeting’s news surfaced that the Mets were guaging interest in Jon Niese.

Mets Contact K-Rod

This from the Hey Man… Now that’s interesting… Original Post 12/2 Before the Mets traded Frankie Rodriguez to the Brewers for two PTBNL’s they had the fourth best bullpen in the National League. K-rod was the closer of course, with Jason  Isringhausen performing admirably as the setup man, and Bobby Parnell and Pedro Beato were thriving in […]

Dodgers Sign Capuano; Pitched Best Game Of 2011 Season For Mets

According to Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, former Mets LHP Chris Capuano has agreed to terms with the Dodgers on a two year, $10 million contract. Honestly, as much as I would have liked to have Capuano back on a one-year deal, his chances to re-sign with the Mets was doomed the moment he mentioned he wanted a two-year […]

Morning Grind: Mets Will Regret Letting Nick Evans Slip Away

An article by posted on November 30, 2011 0 Comments

Given the financial situation the Mets are currently in, holding on to a guy like Nick Evans should have been a no-brainer. Not only would Evans have been a quality bat and add much-needed depth to a very thin, not-so-Amazin’ roster, but come at a relatively inexpensive price. This 25-year old has been up and […]

Francisco Cordero Makes the Most Sense for The Mets

So far this offseason, the Mets have been linked to several free-agent closers including Joe Nathan, Matt Capps, Frank Francisco, and Jonathan Broxton. The team has also been linked to one player who, in my opinion, probably makes the most sense for the Mets. Francisco Cordero. Cordero, who was with the Reds in 2011, saved […]

How Badly Do The Mets REALLY Need Jose Reyes?

The past year has solely revolved around Jose Reyes and whether he will return in 2012 or skip town for a big payday. Many people, myself included, have criticized Sandy Alderson and the Mets for not acting sooner to lock the all-star shortstop. But upon further review, I am not sure he is healthy enough to […]
