Beltran Says Collins Deserves Big Assist For Wheeler Trade

I read a great article last night from David Lennon of Newsday, that I believe most of you will enjoy. Lennon got together with Carlos Beltran after the Mets lost to the Cardinals, and the former Mets center fielder looked back fondly at his time with the Mets and talked about his first years with […]

Giancarlo Stanton Blockbuster Trade With NY Mets in the Works?

Let me get this out of the way first, I give full credit to RotoExperts for the dramatic title. It looked way too seductive to me and I felt it would be a cardinal sin to mess with it or alter it in any way. But lets get to the sirloin… Apparently they’ve been given some hot […]

Sandy Alderson And His Legacy Of Diminished Expectations

Who can forget where we were and what we were doing on December 16, 2004? (Ok, I admit it. I didn’t know the exact date either). It was a huge day for us fans. After finishing 25 GB and under .500 for the 3rd straight year, Omar Minaya made not only a bold move but […]

Is A Longterm Deal For Wright In Mets’ Best Interest?

Last week in one of our MMO Roundtable posts, I posed the question to our staff about whether David Wright would be back in a Mets uniform next season. Only one out of the seventeen who replied said Wright wouldn’t be back. Almost all of them made comments that Sandy Alderson has to do “whatever it takes”, or […]

An article by posted on February 22, 2012 0 Comments

My expectations for the 2012 Mets are admittedly low, but that’s just me, and readers of this blog realize I don’t jump off the deep end when it comes to this team. However, I will be pleased if they continue the aggressive play they performed last year under Terry Collins. The Mets didn’t win, but […]

Temper Your Expectations

Hey MMO readers, I’m not looking to be a Debbie Downer with this post, but I wanted to draw a bit of a comparison to my colleague Clayton’s post yesterday about the Mets offense being better than we think in 2012. I think Clayton drew some fair points, but the bottom line is that it […]

Who Are the Top 6 Mets Players Since 2000?

The New York Mets have struggled in recent years, only making two postseason appearances since 2000. Several large-ticket free agent signings led to the promise of better things to come, but several of those signings didn’t pan out according to plan (Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran and Jason Bay, to name a few). However, the Mets […]

Shut Up With The “Moneyball Mets”!

An article by posted on September 23, 2011 0 Comments

I came across a piece yesterday (linked by Craig Lerner in his article) by Dave Lennon of Newsday that caught my eye. Is the ”Moneyball” approach paying off for the Mets? In some respects, the answer to that question is yes, as they have climbed to the top of the National League in targeted offensive categories […]

After Trimming Some Fat Off The Payroll, What’s Left For Alderson To Play With?

An article by posted on August 3, 2011 0 Comments

When the first pitch was thrown on opening day of the 2011 season, the Mets payroll sat at $142 Million.  Due to that number Alderson was not able to do much this past off season.  That is all going to change with all of the contracts expiring at the end of this season. With the […]
