So I was tasked with putting […]

General manager Sandy Alderson categorized the issue as minor and Duda refused to elaborate. “Everything’s good,” he said. Manager Terry Collins told reporters that […]

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman wrote that the Mets should look to sign catcher Russell Martin if the Yankees decide to let him walk at the end of the season. Sherman said that Martin is already used to playing in New York and that the Mets are “desperate to add power, and Martin’s 21 homers […]

Mets Go Streaking..Again

June was set to be a real test for this team.  More than 20 games against teams which boast better than .500 records stood in the Mets path a few short weeks ago and ultimately, they’ve navigated the month well, but that’s not to say the month of June hasn’t been frustrating. Win three..lose three..win […]

Do You Believe In This Team?

While others would have preferred that we focus on a Wilpon/Picard trial to get our Mets fill this season, I spent the better part of the offseason trying to keep your eyes in between the foul lines because it felt right, but also because it looked like something special was beginning to brew. In January I said, “If […]

What Will We See Out Of Lucas Duda in 2012

After struggling in 29 games in 2010, Lucas Duda came roaring back in 2011, posting a .292 batting average in 100 games played over 301 at-bats. Duda stroked 21 doubles, 10 home runs and 50 RBI, and showed he could be a nice cog in the Mets lineup. So after a nice showing last year from […]

When the 4-time all-star inked his 6-year $106 million deal with the Marlins, the general idea was that the Mets offense would be left in shambles.

This week, I read two interesting posts on MMO, one from my good friend and colleague Clayton Collier asking “Is C.J. Wilson A Better Signing Than Jose Reyes“, the other from my good colleague Ben Yoel, who asked “Should the Mets sign Yu Darvish over Jose Reyes”.  Both articles were very interesting.  However, in all seriousness, […]
