Are The New York Mets Really Rebuilding From The Ground Up?

We have heard that the Mets are going through a complete overhaul, rebuilding the organization from the ground up. Until the trade that sent RA Dickey to the Blue Jays for prominent prospects Travis d’Arnaud and Noah Syndergaard, it sure didn’t look like a team that was rebuilding. The Dickey trade was the first action taken […]

Believe It Or Not, The Mets Have Gotten Worse

It’s really hard to believe, but the Mets have gotten worse this off-season. They haven’t done anything to improve on their 2012 season. In fact, they lost a couple of players that helped them to their mediocre performance in 2012. There was a reason why the Mets waited until the Winter Meetings to sign David […]

If The Mets Trade R.A. Dickey, Who Becomes The Team’s Ace?

Now that the Mets have locked up David Wright to an extension, they will probably shift their attention to the 2012 Cy Young award winner, RA Dickey. Could the reason why Wright finally agreed to sign on the dotted line be because he and Dickey are truly a package deal, and now the Mets are going to lock […]

A Look At The New York Mets Top Catching Prospects

The catcher position is one that the Mets have been trying to address for a few seasons now. Josh Thole has started the most games behind the plate since the days of Mike Piazza and then Paul LoDuca, but Thole is far from the traditional offensive catcher. Unless you are Charles Johnson behind the plate, […]

Who Was The Mets Most Valuable Player In 2012, Wright Or Dickey?

There wasn’t a real lot to rave about when you consider the Mets 2012 season as a whole, but even in an 88-loss season, there were a few bright spots. We had our first No-Hitter in franchise history, we saw one of our top prospects breakthrough in a big way, and one of the Mets’ […]

Baseball Is Ninety Percent Mental

“Baseball is ninety percent mental and the other half is physical.” – Yogi Berra Everyone loves a good “Yogism.” The funny thing about that one in particular, is that it makes absolutely no sense, and yet it makes perfect sense at the same time. Yogi’s math didn’t add up, but he was definitely on to […]

Can’t You Picture This?

So by now, everyone has heard the news that Mike Pelfrey will not be tendered this off-season. This allows him to freely seek employment with other teams.

Analyzing The 2012 Mets Pitching Staff Using The Factor12 Rating

Valdespin Playing Right Field During Winter Ball, What It Means For The Mets

Adam Rubin of ESPN tweeted yesterday that Jordany Valdespin would be playing right field in the Dominican Winter League. This went against what most believed – that Valdespin would be playing second base this winter. I recently did an end of the year review for Valdespin on another Mets website, so this is the perfect […]
