Featured Post: Doomsday Prep for Mets Fans

I’m so very tired of all the complaining and whining about how bad the Mets are. The Mets aren’t really that bad and unless some crazy stupid series of unfortunate events take hold, things should get better. There are far more hideous things in the world than the state of the 2013 Met roster. For […]

An article by posted on February 15, 2013 0 Comments

Fred Wilpon’s proclamation in Port St. Lucie yesterday the Mets are now out of debt and ready to jump into the free-agent market brought a skeptical response. The feeling wasn’t  “oh boy, let’s go get Jacoby Ellsbury next year,’’ but rather “I’ll believe it when it see it.’’ Remember, the road to hell is paved with good […]

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 […]

MMO Mailbag: What’s The Deal With Brandon Nimmo?

Metscentric asks… What is the deal with Brandon Nimmo? Can he hit and by hit I mean hit for average? He strikes out in droves and wasn’t even ranked in the top ten prospects of the NY Penn League by Baseball America. Jose Fernandez who was selected right after the Mets took Nimmo is one […]

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 […]

From Left Field: Should The Mets Have Made A Run At Mauer?

The Minnesota Twins places All-Star catcher Joe Mauer on revocable trade waivers earlier this week, and, not too surprisingly, no team put a claim in for him. The 29-year-old is due $23 million per season through 2018, so team’s likely balked at that salary. I heard some reports that the Mets should have gone after […]
