If The Mets Trade R.A. Dickey, Who Becomes The Team’s Ace?

Now that the Mets have locked up David Wright to an extension, they will probably shift their attention to the 2012 Cy Young award winner, RA Dickey. Could the reason why Wright finally agreed to sign on the dotted line be because he and Dickey are truly a package deal, and now the Mets are going to lock […]

Mets Could Learn A Lot From Watching The Giants

When covering an event, I pull for good storylines and fast games. I don’t cheer for the teams I have covered. Never have; never will. Instead, I want good things to happen to good people. When you are around a group for nearly nine months, you get a feel for how hard these guys work […]

MMO Mailbag: Is Jordany Valdespin A 2013 Starter?

JetsMets13 asks… Is Jordany Valdespin an everyday player for us next season and is he finished as a second baseman? Sean replies… No – and it will all be tied to his lack of plate discipline. Valdespin provided plenty of late-inning heroics as well as pinch-hitting power, but struck out in nearly 25% of his AB’s and […]

Interesting Start To MLB Playoffs; Intriguing World Series Possibilities

It has been an interesting start to the baseball playoffs. The play-in games put a different spin on things, but I’m hearing a lot of criticism of the single game format and it would be fairer to have best two-or-three.
