Now that the All Star Game has come and gone and the non-waiver trade deadline is just two weeks away, Major League Baseball is in full pennant race mode. Teams are assessing their needs and targeting the players who could fulfill those needs. Given the state of the Mets offense, the team needs a bat […]

Candidates for Matt Harvey’s Rotation Spot

The news that Matt Harvey may miss a significant amount of time due to the possibility that he may have thoracic outlet syndrome is devastating to not only Harvey himself, but also to the Mets rotation. While Harvey was struggling all year with a 4.86 ERA, he is also a pitcher who the Mets counted on in […]

Lack of Mets Minor League Development At Crux Of Offensive Struggles

It was only natural to watch last Thursday’s coverage of the MLB Draft and hope the Mets would stockpile some future offensive stars. Such additions would obviously be a few years away from contribution, but with the offense sputtering the way it has been for the last month, it would be nice to know that […]

Mets Discussed Moving Walker To 3B, Promoting Herrera To Take Over 2B

I thought I’d drop this information from Adam Rubin in this post because right to the heart of what David argued so well in this article this morning. “The Mets have internally discussed Neil Walker getting time at third base with Dilson Herrera at second base, and Walker told Collins he is on board, but […]

Harvey Should Be In Vegas Where Viola Could Help Get Him Right

The Mets have made the wrong decision to give Matt Harvey another shot Monday.  In fact, it should actually be Matt who makes the choice for himself. He  needs to take some time to go to AAA and get right. It could be a watershed selfless moment for him. The competitor in him should realize, […]

Kevin Plawecki’s Chance to Shine

There are a number of ways to analyze Travis d’Arnaud‘s shoulder problems. It can be used as another example of the narrative that he’s injury prone. It could be used to explain his poor start at the plate. It could be used to explain why the Reds were five-for-five in stolen base attempts on Monday. It can […]

MMO Flashback: Mets Trade Rusty Staub

In 1975, Rusty Staub had his best season ever for the Mets, batting .282/.371/.448 with 30 doubles, 19 home runs and 105 RBI. Then, in the offseason, for reasons few fans could understand, the Mets traded Staub to Detroit for veteran left-handed pitcher Mickey Lolich. Actually, the trade was Staub and AAA pitcher Bill Laxton […]

There’s No Limit To How Good Conforto Can Be

Watching the Mets lose the 2015 World Series was tough. There were a lot of what-if moments. The Mets lost three ninth inning leads. There was a lot to get you down. However, there was one at-bat from that entire series that made me smile. The funny thing was the at-bat had no bearing on […]

Makes No Sense For Plawecki To Be The Backup Catcher

Finally, some common sense. The Mets are now talking about making Johnny Monell the back-up catcher on the Opening Day roster instead of Kevin Plawecki. Truth be told, Plawecki is the better player right now between him and Monell. However, he’s also still considered a prospect that is going to need to receive regular at-bats to get better. Remember […]

What’s Everyone Screaming About?

As promised I wanted to weigh in on the latest concocted controversy stemming from the Mets signing a left-handed outfielder to platoon with Juan Lagares on Monday- which by the way was the team’s stated goal from the moment the hot stove season started. I know this because I’ve expended well over 50,000 words on […]

MMO Exclusive: Talkin’ Baseball With Mets Pitching Prospect Seth Lugo

Yesterday the Mets added four players to their 40-man roster to protect them from the December 10th Rule 5 draft and one of them was starting pitcher Seth Lugo. The right-hander started a career high 24 games this year combined between the Binghamton Mets and Las Vegas 51′s. He went 8-7 with 3.84 ERA and […]
