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 […]

So How Much Is RA Dickey Worth?

Riddle me this… You have a 37 year old pitcher, a knuckleballer, in the midst of the greatest season of his career who has become a fan favorite and is well on his way to earning a second contract extension since joining the team in 2010.  How on earth do you approach that contract negotiation?  […]

The Jason Bay Experiment Has Run It’s Course

There are times when I think Omar Minaya takes a lot more flack than he should.  During his tenure he did everything in his power to produce a winning ball club.  He signed a lot of free agents to numerous big money contracts and for the most part I agreed with his decisions.  I was […]

MMO Fan Shot: Should the Mets trade for Alfonso Soriano?

Not too long ago, the answer to that question would be easy. A resounding “NO!”. Too much money, too old, bad attitude, lousy fielder and he is a strikeout waiting to happen. Physical prowess be damned, he just has too much baggage. Then again, not too long ago, I would have scoffed at the idea […]

Wright Takes Page Out Of Reyes Playbook, Says Wont Negotiate During Season

Here’s something that might sound vaguely familiar.

So let me see if I got this straight… A Mets homegrown star spends most of the […]

A team source told Andy Martino of the Daily News that a contract extension for David Wright is not on the “front burner” right now, but added that his gut feeling was that a new contract extension would get done.

Mets Have No Options With Bay

An article by posted on April 13, 2012 0 Comments

The Mets have been here before, saddled with an unproductive player and a huge contract. It wasn’t too long ago the Mets cursed the existence of Oliver Perez. Now it is Jason Bay. A significant difference is while Perez’s attitude in the clubhouse turned teammates against him, Bay remains a popular figure because he plays […]

For the Right Price, Re-Signing Chris Young Is A Good Idea

An article by posted on March 12, 2012 0 Comments

MLB Trade Rumors reported yesterday that its likely that Chris Young will return to the Mets for the 2012 season. Despite pitching in only 6 games, Young was on track to have a great season.  Before tearing a capsule in his throwing shoulder, he was 2-0 with a 3.32 ERA. I like Chris Young.  When […]
