In one of yesterday’s posts, I saw a little debate pop up as to which GM inherited a better farm system between Omar Minaya and Sandy Alderson.

Santana Surrenders Two Huge Blasts In 6-4 Loss To Nats

MMO Interview: Binghamton Mets Backstop Francisco Pena

Coming from a baseball family, the theory was always that Francisco Pena would shoot through the Mets system and be their starting catcher by 2012.

Morning Grind: Look At These 2012 Mets And Tell Me That Clutch Doesn’t Exist

If there was ever any merit to the concept that clutch hitting doesn’t exist, that “theory” has been completely disproven by these 2012 New York Mets by one lone number. 185. After Thursday night’s incredible 6-5 walk-off victory over the Phillies, that number represents how many times the Mets have scored a run with two […]

Talkin’ Baseball With Mets Prospect Brandon Nimmo

I asked Brandon Nimmo if he had a few minutes to spare at some point before the game against the Hudson Valley Renegades on Sunday.
