Mets Offseason Options Could Dwindle If Choo, Pence, Tulo and Cargo Stay Put

It happens every year… You take a pass on going hog-wild in the offseason with the belief that a better crop of stars will be available next offseason. But as is usually the case, the best players end up getting signed to extensions during the season and those that make it to November usually re-sign […]

Rockies Have What We Need In Tulo and CarGo, But Do We Have What They Need?

As the season draws to a close, Met management may be flicking the occasional glance west toward Denver, home of a team with a similar won/lost record but with notably dissimilar team stats. While the Mets sit in the middle third of the league in both runs scored (10th) and pitching (8th), the Colorado Rockies […]

Heyman Says Choo Fits The Bill For The Mets This Winter

I wanted to update this post with two quick items that were reported in the last 24 hours. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer who covers the Reds and has better intel than some of the speculation I’m seeing elsewhere (MetsBlog 4/$40), says that Choo’s strong season should put agent Scott Boras in a position to ask […]

MMO Mailbag: Do You Believe The Mets Will Spend This Offseason?

John B. asks… Do you really believe the Mets will spend this offseason or that they will contend in 2014? Joe D. replies… In a word, yes. I do believe they will spend as they do have many areas they need to address, and they are fresh out of All Star caliber players to trade […]

Will Mets Sign A $100 Million Free Agent This Winter?

I just finished reading a post on MetsBlog about the Mets and the possibilities of signing soon to be free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury. According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Red Sox center fielder has an asking price of more than $100 million dollars. I’ve also seen names like Shin-Soo Choo and Robinson Cano mentioned as […]

Get Ready For A Rock N’ Roll Pitching Matchup In Cleveland

In 2004, general manager Jim Duquette thought the Mets were a playoff contender, as the team was just three games out of first place on July 22.  But one week later, the Mets were seven games off the pace and falling fast.  Not wanting to give up on the season, Duquette traded away the team’s […]

The Good, The Bad and The Murphy

Daniel Murphy made his major league debut on August 2, 2008, which makes him the second-longest tenured position player on the Mets behind David Wright.  Whereas David Wright is beloved by just about the entire Mets fan base, those same fans aren’t as kind to Daniel Murphy. Many fans (myself included) love the guy, and […]

This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The “Oh, Sandy” Edition

Sometimes I wonder why I even read some Mets related posts on Facebook or Twitter. If you were to gauge the Mets fan base on the way General Manager, Sandy Alderson has run the team, well you would think that this team was based out of Miami. Yes, I realize that the lunatic fringe faction […]

Does Juan Lagares’ Defense Warrant A Starting Job No Matter What?

Does Juan Lagares’ Defense Warrant A Starting Job No Matter What?

We all know the deal by now: Juan Lagares is pretty good in the outfield. No, scratch that — he’s probably the best defensive center fielder I have seen on the Mets since Carlos Beltran. He takes great routes to balls, accelerates with ease, and packs a cannon for an arm. He’s always been touted […]
