MMO Mailbag: Checking In With D-Backs On Didi Gregorius and Chris Owings

Mike asks… Just wondering what you think it would take to get one of Didi Gregorius or Chris Owings from the Arizona Diamondbacks? They seem to have a surplus at shortstop as well as outfield. So what kind of a package would you hope the Mets could work out? Teddy replies… To Sir Mike, I […]

Featured Post: Omar Infante Could Be A Smart Pickup For The Mets

Jhonny Peralta has signed a four-year, $52 million contract to play shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals.  Stephen Drew is still out there, but is surprisingly not getting much attention. (Injury history, anyone?)  Ben Zobrist could be traded for, but Tampa Bay really loves him and would more than likely ask for a king’s ransom […]

Blue Jays Have Not Entertained Idea Of Trading Bautista Or Encarnacion

“We’ve got to find us somebody who can keep opposing pitchers from pitching around David Wright” It’s no secret what Terry Collins is hoping for this holiday season. A bright and shiny power hitter.

Discipline vs. Patience and The Mets’ Offensive Philosophy

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 […]

Building The Mets From Bottom Up, Not Top Down

I like what Joel Sherman of the NY Post had to say this morning about the Mets, the Rays, the A’s and building from the bottom up. There have been too many late-season days when the Mets too closely resemble the Long Island Ducks. They need to fortify the whole roster, even with money tight. […]

An Official $85 Million Payroll Sighting

For months now, I’ve been saying I’d be shocked if the Mets have more than an $85 million payroll in 2014. And while some reports have had the Mets as low as $90 million – this morning there was an $85 million sighting on ESPN New York. “A Mets source recently told ESPNNewYork.com that the […]
