It’s no secret that the Mets are in the market for a starting pitcher this winter. All talks to this point have surrounded their pursuit of free agent arms but their reluctance to overpay has seen them sit idly by while most of the top arms are finding their destinations. With talent on the market diminishing, the Mets need to expand their search to the trade market. The ideal situation would have been to find […]
A source told MMO on Saturday that the New York Mets have not contacted free agent Cory Hart or made any offer to the former Brewers first baseman. “There’s been a few teams, but the Mets are not one of them.” Last week, Hart said that while there’s been plenty of interest in him from teams in both the AL and NL, there’s some hesitation until he gets medical clearance from doctors. “What’s so hard right now […]

To follow up the 10 best offensive clubs since the 80s, it’s only fitting to list the 10 lease offensive (or depending on the context – the most offensive) teams since 1980. While we are not too far removed from the Times-O-Plenty, we’ve recently been mired in Several Seasons of Drought. The 10 Worst Scoring Mets Teams since 1980 1. 1981 – 547 runs – 3.38 runs per game 2. 1983 […]
Happy Thanksgiving, Mets Fans. Do we have anything to be thankful for in 2013? Is that even possible? On this day of thanks, let’s look at the positives this year and give thanks for these few special moments out of the multitude of bad ones. David Wright is currently in his prime. He put up some outstanding numbers yet again, but with another weak lineup. If this front office can put a few bats around […]
After passing his physical, the Mets officially announced the signing of our new rightfielder Chris Young this afternoon. “Chris has had a distinguished career to this point and we think with regular playing time we think he can return to his all-star caliber performance,” GM Sandy Alderson said. “He’s a tremendous defensive outfielder, brings some power, the approach we’re looking for offensively and some speed on the bases.” Alderson said that Young could bat anywhere from 5-7 […]
David Wright is making the rounds… After hitting WFAN with Francesa on Monday, today he was a guest of Mike Lupica on ESPN NY 98.7 FM. “I think Sandy has a plan in place and I think he’s got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings,” Wright said. “Everybody knew that the free-agent prices were going to be high this year with the new TV deal and things like that, Wright […]
There was an interesting post today by Adam Rubin, where he writes that free-agent reliever David Aardsma shared his displeasure with players that cheat the game, come back from suspension, and are rewarded with huge contracts. He doesn’t name any player by name, but most recently Jhonny Peralta signed with the Cardinals for 4 years, $52 million contract, so anyone can assume that maybe he is referring to that contract. But I have to agree with Aardsma, […]
The terms “discipline at the plate” and “patience at the plate” come up quite often when discussing hitters’ approaches at the plate—especially if you are a Mets fan. This notion that the organization is teaching their hitters to be more patient is a questionable one to say the least. The two terms sound like they mean the same thing, but actually are quite different. Patience refers to working a pitcher, seeing all his pitches, and […]
