Let’s Trim The Fat Off The Mets 40-Man Roster

What is taking Sandy Alderson so long to make roster cuts? The Mets have been making moves over the last few days as they begin to trim the fat off of the 40-man roster. The one problem I have is, why is it taking so long to make the cuts? According to Alderson he already […]

Cashman Field Is Less Than Optimal If The Mets Hook Up With Las Vegas

I was compelled to do a little research this morning on the home of the Las Vegas 51′s, Cashman Field. I was motivated by a couple of comments that were left on my post yesterday in which I reported that the Mets could be hitching the Triple-A team with Las Vegas after the Oklahoma City […]

MMO Fan Shot: Patience is a Virtue? Not In Flushing It’s Not…

We have all heard the phrase good things come to those that wait, but the phrase really only works if you seem to have a plan for the future that you intend to wait for. Patience works if you have a plan. But I see no plan at work with this organization. Many have tried […]

MMO Mailbag: Why Don’t The Mets Call Up Fred Lewis?

I received an interesting question from @GWNY on Twitter who asked me: Why don’t the Mets call up Fred Lewis to play LF? It’s a great question and one we’ve grappled with a couple of times in our Minor League comment threads this season. The answer as to why Lewis is still languishing in Buffalo […]

Left-handed reliever CJ Nitkowski announced on Twitter that he has signed with the Mets and is headed to Double-A Binghamton. Back in March, Nitkowski auditioned for the Mets in front of J.P.

MMO Minors: A Demotion For Familia and A Promotion For Mateo Might Be Imminent

I find it amazing how little attention RHP Luis Mateo gets when the topic of conversation is about the Mets’ best pitching prospects. If you didn’t know any better you would think that Zack Wheeler, Jeurys Familia, Matt Harvey and one or two others, were the only starting pitchers in the Mets minor league system. So […]

Old Time Mets: LHP Jon Matlack

Jon Matlack’s career record of 125-126 may be as mediocre as you can get, but Matlack was a much, much better than average major league pitcher. In fact, he was one of the very finest lefthanded pitchers ever developed by the Mets’ organization. His other career marks – 3.18 lifetime ERA (better than Steve Carlton, […]
