Savannah, which starts playing on Thursday, has been speculated over and over to continuously have some top talent this season, and the people who speculated these were mostly right. There are a lot of prospects to be watching on this roster, both on the hitters and pitches side. I will list them as a convenience, […]

From Left Field: Keith Hernandez’s Lineup Idea Looks Good

In the television broadcasts this spring in which Keith Hernandez has been in the booth, he’s provided his insights into the best potential Mets’ batting order. He said that the best lineup will have length, and I agree. The team isn’t exactly an offensive powerhouse, so it will have to create ways to get the […]

MMO Fan Shot: What Will This Mets Dynasty Team Look Like?

If you are like me, you look forward to a time when the major rebuilding is done and the Mets can (hopefully) embark on an extended period of high level competitiveness and play meaningful games (to borrow a phrase) each fall. Assuming that time is near (2014? 2015?), what will the team’s roster look like? […]

Matt Harvey On Opening Day… Throw Us A Bone Please?

I get it. I really do. At this point, no Mets’ fan in their right mind thinks Johan Santana is going to be ready for Opening Day. And it appears the start will go to Jonathon Niese. And out of any other options in the rotation, Niese is probably the one that most deserves it. […]

Comparing Mets 2005-2010 Draft and IFA Signings To Other MLB Teams?

Many Mets fans have extremely passionate opinions about how well the Mets drafted and signed International free agents during the Omar Minaya era. It is a hotly debated topic, but after every heated debate, there are never any clear answers to how the Mets drafted during this period. Because of the lack of clarity, I […]

Pros And Cons For Signing Michael Bourn

So far this off-season, three outfielders have said their final goodbyes to the Mets.  Jason Bay took his strikeouts and pop-ups to Seattle.  Andres Torres left in search of a ring in San Francisco.  And my wife’s ass is now on new Cubs outfielder Scott Hairston’s Wikipedia page.  It goes without saying that the Mets […]

2012 Mets Player Review: Bobby Parnell, RHP

An article by posted on October 31, 2012 0 Comments

BOBBY PARNELL, RHP PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: Actually, considering his new role entering spring training, the expectations of Bobby Parnell – he of the fastball of 100 mph. – were minimal. Parnell could not seize the closer, set-up and even starter roles when given the opportunity in previous seasons, so the Mets dropped him to the seventh inning […]

MMO Mailbag: Should We Target Toronto’s Travis d’Arnaud?

We received this email from one of our readers, doekie. Let’s assume nothing will be done and the arbitration players will be back. Shoppach will be back and some kind of right handed OF. I liked your thoughts on the Rockies and Mets trade. How about Toronto? Their lineup could use some lefthanded hitters. And they also […]
