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. It probably would, but MLB doesn’t want to take the chance of playing in November. […]

MMO Fan Shot: Two Solutions to the Mets Catching Problems

One of the major weaknesses of the New York Mets is the catching position.  Starter Josh Thole has produced nothing offensively and is poor defensively.  Backups Mike Nickeas and Rob Johnson struggle just to hit over the Mendoza line. Newly acquired catcher Kelly Shoppach isn’t awful, but we would be kidding ourselves to think that […]

Mets May Need To Add Three Starting Outfielders For 2013

Right now the Mets outfield situation is a disaster. Who would have thought that not one single player would solidify himself this season as a starter for 2013. Just about everyone we have thrown out there has left something to be desired. There is still time for that to change, but time is running out quickly. […]

MMO Fan Shot: A GM Sometimes Takes The Bullet For What Ownership Decides

The first all professional baseball team, that is, the first team to pay all of its players, was the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings. The team was owned and operated by members of a Ohio Law firm. Since that time, the business of baseball has evolved in countless ways. Player unions, media revenue, sponsorships, advertising dollars, […]

As the Mets’ roster has evolved throughout the course of this season, it appears that things may fall into place a bit faster that most fans had originally envisioned.  The farm system, originally believed to be devoid of any significant major league caliber talent only one year ago, has produced enough replacements to keep the […]

MMO Fan Shot: Should the Mets trade for Alfonso Soriano?

Not too long ago, the answer to that question would be easy. A resounding “NO!”. Too much money, too old, bad attitude, lousy fielder and he is a strikeout waiting to happen. Physical prowess be damned, he just has too much baggage. Then again, not too long ago, I would have scoffed at the idea […]

Mets Memories – Ron Swoboda

To most younger Mets fans with a sense of history, Ron Swoboda will always be remembered for his great catch and clutch hits that helped the Mets win the 1969 World Series against Baltimore. But for those of us who remember when he first came up in spring training of 1964, Swoboda represented great hope. […]

Ike Davis is Pure CHAOS!

“Me, I’m like pure chaos and I swing as hard as I can.” “I don’t think I’ve seen a guy, pound for pound, with more pop than he’s got.  If he connects, the ball will hit the Grand Canyon.”  ~  Chipper Jones Davis has quickly become one of my favorite Mets. He has an intensity […]

2012 MLB Draft: Trey Williams, 3B, Valencia HS

With the hot stove season nearing its end, I’ll be chipping in a lot less on Mets news, and focus more on the upcoming First Year Player Draft in June, as I did last year. I’m currently working on my own “Top 15 Draft Prospects” list and a “Five Players To Watch” piece for the […]
