We’re all such Mets fans. Give us the smallest spark of hope, the tiniest roster change, one decent WHIP, or a great year two or three seasons in the past for an aging player, and we’re practically giddy with excitement. Oh, the Mets – serious wild card contenders at last! We never should have doubted […]

Josh Satin – Cleanup Hitter

Call me crazy, but I’d like to see Josh Satin hitting cleanup. I think he can hit and be very productive on the Major League level. Yes, he took several years to make it to the majors, but let’s also not forget that his path to the bigs was blocked by David Wright at third […]

I had an interesting conversation with a someone whose profile tabbed him as a baseball expert. The guy was also a die-hard Met fan. I found him to be representative of most of the Met fans I know from Mets Twitter. I thought I’d kill some time late last night and chatted with many of […]

MMO Fan Shot: Nelson Cruz, Keep on Cruzin’

If we look at the methodical approach of the Mets’ front office the past few winters, and every legitimate Mets fan has, there is no conceivable scenario that Nelson Cruz ends up a New York Met for four years and $75 million dollars. And we should be glad that’s the case. In fact, I don’t […]

Featured Post: Omar Infante Could Be A Smart Pickup For The Mets

Jhonny Peralta has signed a four-year, $52 million contract to play shortstop for the St. Louis Cardinals.  Stephen Drew is still out there, but is surprisingly not getting much attention.
