Raymond asks… Did you happen to read the report on MetsBlog that the Mets are still looking for a veteran backup and that John Buck and Ramon Hernandez are options for them? Do you think that deep down inside they don’t believe in Travis d’Arnaud anymore and have lost faith in him? Joe D. replies… Absolutely not. The front office is still very high on d’Arnaud (as they should be) and are anxious to see him […]
Last week, the Mets the added left-hander Steven Matz and right-handers Jeff Walters, Jacob deGrom and Erik Goeddel to the 40 Man Roster, protecting those players from being selected in next month’s Rule 5 Draft. Since then, Goeddel has spawned more than a dozen emails to MMO as Mets fans were curious to know more about this talented pitching prospect who the Mets feared would be swiped up in a heartbeat if left unprotected. Erik […]
We are pleased to welcome the talents of Robert Walsh to our staff at Metsmerized Online. It is now known that sometime this month, under a cloak of secrecy demanded by such bold initiative, Sandy Alderson visited Chris Young somewhere out west, ostensibly we can conclude to pitch him on the merits of signing a free agent contract with the Mets. Nary a tweet on Twitter revealed the details of the delicate operation, nor the results the monumental meeting […]
Debunking a myth – how the Tampa Bay Rays and Oakland A´s have built perennial contenders as small market teams With the Mets caught in a massive financial restructuring and – apparently – unable and / or unwilling to compete for high-end free agents this winter, the Tampa Bay Rays & Oakland A´s are often referred to as models of how you can win with a small payroll. And indeed, both teams have had stunning […]
Kevin D. asks… It seems that you are the only one among your writers that didn’t like the Chris Young signing. He is an all star who took less money to come to the Mets and is still young with a lot of upside. I don’t understand what you don’t like about him and even FanGraphs said it will be the best baseball signing of the entire offseason. Joe D. replies… That’s quite a mouthful […]

Wait!!! What???? Spend $62 million bucks on a starting pitcher? OK not exactly the headline remotely expected from the Mets front office, where pennies are pinched so much that they melt them down for the copper & zinc and sold off to Liberty Scrap Metal over in Jamaica. After rereading Mr. Sherman’s quote below thanks to BBLB, I started to kick around how such a methodical plan could be achieved with a fan base that […]
Check out Noah Syndergaard who is featured on the cover of Baseball America this month. Our player analyst Mitch Petanick just shot this over to me to so we could share it with the MMO community… That is one hot cover!!! Earlier today, Syndergaard was named the Mets No. 1 Prospect by Matt Eddy of BA. Read more about that here.
Most Valuable Player Award – David Wright There is little contest to oppose David Wright as team MVP. Harvey put up ridiculous numbers in his sophomore season, but Wright helped the Mets every day while Harvey only helped every 5th day. With a .307 BA, a .390 OBP and a SLG of .514, there is no question that David was the most prominent offensive force the Mets had. It is hard to judge him on […]
