MMO Fan Shot: Is The Tide Shifting For Fred Wilpon?

If you had asked me twelve months ago if the Wilpons should sell the Mets, I’d have been pretty emphatic in my support. In the six months that followed, new reports surfaced describing the debt the Mets were in and it seemed that number grew by $100 million from each report to the next. The […]

Summary Of Potential Changes To Citi Field

MetsBlog summarizes the potential changes Sandy Alderson discussed before yesterday’s game: David Wright seemed absolutely relieved to know that changes were on the way: “It’s nice to have a front office that recognizes the situation and tries to correct it. The most you can ask for is just to be in a ballpark that is fair, […]

Brandon Nimmo To Play In Games As Early As Next Week

Now that the Mets have finally inked their first round pick Brandon Nimmo to a contract, we can all finally relax.  It would have been a devastating blow had he not signed, especially with the lack of production we are getting from our young hitting prospects down in the minors.  Now that he has signed […]

Mets Have Some Risky Rental Players

An article by posted on July 13, 2011 0 Comments

With the trade deadline fast approaching, the Mets still appear uncertain about whether they’ll be buyers or sellers. Eventually, they’ll have to make a decision, and if they wind up being sellers, they possess several risky trade targets—possibly too risky to be thought of as rental players. The first of course is Jose Reyes. Though […]

The Invisible Top Prospect Wilmer Flores

An article by posted on May 27, 2011 0 Comments

Amidst this crazy season, it’s easy to forget about a guy who most of upper management is hoping will be apart of the team’s future within the next few years. Flores, 19, is the prototypical Mets prospect in that he’s young and raw with unlimited amounts of potential. They signed him as an undrafted free […]

Is F-Mart Still A Viable Prospect?

An article by posted on May 14, 2011 0 Comments

Fernando Martinez is 22, still young enough in the sport where he’s graded most on potential. However, the past few years have been rough on his body and he’s lost more games due to injury than anybody his age should have the right to. At one time Martinez was part of a group of three […]

Sandy Has More Moves Than You Think

An article by posted on May 7, 2011 0 Comments

With the recent rumors about a potential trade for Jose Reyes swirling, it got me to thinking about who else we could trade.  When I started to think about it, surprisingly, a lot more players seemed potentially intriguing to other teams depending on their circumstances. Teams are not desperate yet, but some inevitably will be as […]

Daniel Murphy – The Functional Second Baseman

An article by posted on March 7, 2011 0 Comments

The battle for second base rages on, but the real battle for the second base competition has been based in assumptions with unproven characters (Turner, Murphy, Emaus) and a character that every Mets fan wishes won’t prove himself (Luis Castillo). Though its only spring training, I am putting my backing into camp Murphy. Here are […]

Ram’s Rambles: Jose Reyes And OBP

An article by posted on March 6, 2011 0 Comments

See those men pictured above? Jose Reyes and David Wright. Not too far back in the past, Reyes was “The most exciting player in baseball” and Wright was “The Prince of NY.” They are cornerstones of this organization and I hope  I still respect them both as much as I did two or three years […]

Castillo Fading Out Of Picture

An article by posted on February 25, 2011 0 Comments

Just because he hustles doesn’t mean Daniel Murphy will win the second base job. There are concerns about his defensive abilities, and while he has shown glimpses of offensive production, it is still a small window. The Mets like Rule 5 selection Brad Emaus’ potential, and he’ll get a nod over Justin Turner because the […]
