Scouts Are Raving About Jeurys Familia

Jeurys Familia hasn’t thrown a lot this winter, but when he has, he’s been lights out, missing a ton of bats and flashing the mid-to-upper-90s velocity that has scouts raving, writes Baseball Prospectus. You can’t put a lot of stock in winter league performances, but you can put a ton of stock in young pitchers returning […]

OK, So What Exactly Is The Real Plan Again?

Oscar Wilde, who would have loved modern baseball for all its hubris and wonderful folly, is quoted as having said, “One’s real life is often the life that one does not lead”. On this rather uneventful Monday, with the new year, 2014, just around the corner, an analogous baseball corollary to the Wilde quote comes […]

MMO Fan Shot: Duda Not Perfect, But Best Option For Mets Right Now

An MMO Fan Shot by Michael Mandelkern Lucas Duda could be the New York Mets’ best option to start at first base next year. Even though he has not played a full season, his OBP and OPS statistics look promising. He has raw power too. But most importantly to General Manager Sandy Alderson, he comes […]

MMO Mailbag: Can Puello Challenge For A Spot In The Outfield?

Hitman asks… Should the Mets fail to acquire another power bat in the OF, what are the chances of Cesar Puello challenging (and winning) a spot come Spring Training? For now, lets say that the Mets retain Ike Davis. Should Davis get his head on straight, I believe another slugger around Davis like Puello in […]

He also stated to us that newly acquired Chris Young was promised playing time although it wasn’t clear how many at-bats that meant or whether that playing time would come in right or […]

MMO Mailbag: Does D’Arnaud Have Enough Power To Justify A Move To First Base?

NickCant12 asks… Let’s be honest, there is major concern with Travis d’Arnaud‘s ability to stay healthy, and although his defense isn’t necessarily a concern, it’s not a strength either. With high praise from the Mets brain trust for catching prospect Kevin Plawecki, does TDA have enough pop in his bat to justify a switch to […]

Rising Through The Ranks: Mets’ Pitching Prospect Cory Mazzoni

There has been some buzz this offseason regarding Cory Mazzoni possibly making the Mets’ Opening Day roster as a reliever. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as the Mets do have to fill some holes in the bullpen and many have seen Mazzoni as a player that could transition to the pen now that there […]
