AL East Preview: The Price Is Right

The AL East to me, is the most interesting division heading into 2014. Last year, the World Series champions (Boston) had what some might call, the luckiest season health wise in recent memory. In reality, if you picked any of the five teams to win this division – you wouldn’t be going out on a […]

Talkin’ Baseball: A Brilliant Infield Duo That Never Was

Scores of Met fans may have missed it. The New York Post ran a Sunday piece by Joel Sherman called “A Decade of A-Rod.” Most baseball fans have had more than their fill of Alex Rodriguez, especially Met fans tired of A-Rod’s front and back page coverage in the New York Dailies. In the piece, […]

Sandy Alderson: Unlikely Mets Acquire Another Major Free Agent

February 13 Sandy Alderson told reporters today in St. Lucie, that it is unlikely that he acquires another major free agent this offseason. It’s now one of those cases where you have to do the math. A Drew signing seems very unlikely at this point and it’s not as if the Mets were ever really […]

From Left Field: What Could Have Been If Mets Signed Jose Reyes

I was listening to WFAN this morning, and Evan Roberts brought up an interesting point. He said that the Mets two gaping holes right now are shortstop and leadoff hitter. Hmm, not too long ago, the Mets had arguably the best in the game at both: Jose Reyes. But of course, we know what happened […]

MMO Fan Shot: Going To WAR For Stephen Drew?

An MMO Fan Shot by Steven Pacchiano Call me old fashioned, call me a dinosaur, I’m 39 years old BUT I still have 20/20 vision. I understand the concept of WAR and all the stats that go into it, but I really prefer to look at the classic numbers and watch the player play in order […]

The Long And The Short On Carlos Beltran

The Baseball Gods smiled down on Flushing all season. It seemed more than just a coincidence that as the Mets paid homage to the ‘86 Championship, 20 years later we were destined to again make the dream come true. The ’06 Mets played with confidence and swagger. David Wright was a clean-cut leader, an athlete […]

When Is A Good OBP Not So Good

Egads… What’s that picture of Luis Castillo doing up there? I bet you didn’t think you’d see him again, right?

Then […]

A Christmas Carol: The Sandy I Met

Pen went to paper way back in 1843. Even so, the classic holiday novella, “The Christmas Carol” resonates with readers today as one of Charles Dickens’ most important literary contributions. No other character in the beloved novella captures the fascination of readers and viewers like Ebenezer Scrooge. Many times, my mind shifts to Ebenezer Scrooge […]
