Like Father, Like Son: L.J. Mazzilli Off To Hot Start With Cyclones

Former Mets’ star Lee Mazzilli made the borough of Brooklyn his stomping grounds growing up. Abraham Lincoln H.S. in Coney Island was his home until the Mets drafted him right out of high school in 1973. Located just a mile and half from Lincoln down Ocean Parkway and on Surf Avenue is MCU Park. Though […]

From Left Field: Would Santana Accept A Minors Deal For 2014?

On Monday night, I watch the replay of Johan Santana’s no-hitter on SNY and was just as captivated as the night I watched it live on television. But this time around, I kept thinking to myself what could have been with Santana had his Mets’ tenure not been decimated by injuries. Then I of course […]

Collins Pulling Gee Was A Mistake That Didn’t End Up Hurting The Team

Updated with thoughts by Joe D. on 5/31 When Terry Collins removed Dillon Gee in the eighth inning last night after registering one out, I like everyone else who were interacting on Twitter busted a gasket. Here was Gee, pitching the game of his life and in the midst of retiring 15 consecutive batters – including […]

Matt Harvey’s Similarities To Tom Seaver Uncanny

One of my greatest wishes as a relatively young Mets fan is wanting to have seen Tom Seaver pitch. Sure, I’ve seen the highlight videos and World Series tapes that portrayed his dominance, but it’s still not the same as seeing the best pitcher in Mets’ history actually toe the rubber. However, albeit still very […]

Most baseball pundits cast off the Mets’ outfield as being the worst in the league heading into the season. On paper, maybe that is correct, but based on performance, the Mets outfield hasn’t been all that bad. Lucas Duda has looked good offensively, Marlon Byrd has had some big hits, Mike Baxter gives all-out effort […]

MMO 2013 National League East Preview

NL East At A Glance Miami Marlins: The team that essentially alienated whatever fan base they thought they had looks like an obvious 5th place team in this division.

Giancarlo Stanton Blockbuster Trade With NY Mets in the Works?

Let me get this out of the way first, I give full credit to RotoExperts for the dramatic title. It looked way too seductive to me and I felt it would be a cardinal sin to mess with it or alter it in any way. But lets get to the sirloin… Apparently they’ve been given some hot […]

From Left Field: Give Travis d’Arnaud A Chance In The Bigs Right Away

To turn attention away from Mike Piazza and the Hall of Fame vote for just a minute, let’s discuss the future Mike Piazza, or so we hope. The Mets acquired Travis d’Arnaud, their catcher of the future, in the trade that sent R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. But why can’t the future be […]

From Left Field: Should Mets Mortgage Farm For Giancarlo Stanton?

MLB.com’s Marty Noble wrote a piece that the Mets should try to make a push to acquire Miami Marlins budding superstar slugger Giancarlo Stanton. Stanton is just 23 years old and has shown mammoth power in just three professional seasons. But hold on, the Marlins have already traded the rest of their star players. Why […]

From Left Field: Why All The Hype About Mike Olt?

Just in case you haven’t noticed, the Mets signed David Wright to an eight-year contract extension. Also a friendly reminder, David Wright is a third baseman. The Mets also have a guy named Ike Davis, who despite a slow start in 2012 managed to club 32 home runs. Davis plays first base and is just […]
