MMO Mailbag: Tejada’s Role After 2014?

Wex asks: Do you think Ruben Tejada will still be the everyday shortstop in 2015? The reason I ask is the Mets drafted Gavin Cecchini one year after they went way over slot on Phillip Evans. They also signed the top Dominican shortstop Germán Ahmed Rosario in July for a record setting bonus. All these […]

MMO Mailbag: Can Wilmer Flores Be A Fit In The Outfield?

Nikki asks… I have a question that hopefully you guys can answer. Has there been any consideration to playing Wilmer Flores in the outfield?

MMO Mailbag: Who Is The Mets Most Valuable Trade Chip?

I had the following question emailed to me yesterday, but there was no name attached, so we’ll call him Anonymous. If Jordany Valdespin is part of the future then why was he sent back to Buffalo? The Mets have no idea right now what the outfield of the future looks like. They’ve spent this season […]

Justin Turner: “I’ll Do Whatever The Team Needs Me To Do”

Is that super-utility man Mark DeRosa on the Mets’ 2012 roster? No, just our own versatile version: Justin Turner. Turner burst onto the scene in 2011 and was an RBI machine in his first extended big league action. But even so, Turner said at the Kids’ Holiday Party that he’s not taking anything for granted […]

Murphy and Tejada Up The Middle? Really?

An article by posted on November 24, 2011 0 Comments

The more I think about the possibility of Ruben Tejada and Daniel Murphy as the likely Mets’ shortstop and second base combo in 2012, the more I want to cringe. This sounds like a disaster in the making… Does defense matter anymore? My concern about this led me to do some quick digging at Baseball Reference: Since […]

Morning Grind: What Ever Happened To Banner Day?

For years, fans would bring banners and signs to the ballpark during double-headers to show their true expression of Mets fandom. But, once MLB stopped scheduling double-headers, so too did the Amazin’s do to the beloved Banner Day. Fans […]

Capuano Has Been A Tough Luck Pitcher

An article by posted on June 7, 2011 0 Comments

When looking at Chris Capuano’s stats, anyone unfamiliar with the Mets would think he’s having a pretty poor season. However, it’s been quite the opposite for the lefty. Capuano has actually pitched well for the Mets but has been the victim of some tough luck this season. He’s made 11 starts so far with a […]
