Harvey Could Still Get Call If Batista Fails To Impress On Saturday

An article by posted on July 19, 2012 0 Comments

It looks like this is the story that won’t go away this season. It feels like every week going back to Spring Training we’ve been reading or hearing about Matt Harvey after every mound appearance and then some. I often wonder if it’s like this with all teams regarding their top prospects or if this […]

MMO Minors: A Demotion For Familia and A Promotion For Mateo Might Be Imminent

I find it amazing how little attention RHP Luis Mateo gets when the topic of conversation is about the Mets’ best pitching prospects. If you didn’t know any better you would think that Zack Wheeler, Jeurys Familia, Matt Harvey and one or two others, were the only starting pitchers in the Mets minor league system. So […]

Daniel Murphy’s Days Are Numbered

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 […]

The Mets Twitterverse: When The Bullet Hits The Bone

As someone who takes great pride in running a Mets fansite, I must admit that occasionally I am repulsed by the behavior of some of those who call themselves Mets fans. Among our incredible fanbase, lurk many who occupy the lowest depths of depravity and are a pariah among us. You may have wondered what […]

First Place In Our Hearts, First Place In The NL East

As most of you know, for most of the offseason, I’ve taken an optimistic approach toward the Mets for this new season. In our 2012 MMO Predictions, I picked the Mets to win the second Wild Card in the National League. For comeback player of the year, my choice was Johan Santana. I’m on record as […]

Zack Wheeler #4, Wilmer Flores #10 Make Baseball America Hot Sheet

Baseball America’s Prospect Hot Sheet for the week ending May 31st has Mets top prospects RHP Zack Wheeler and 3B Wilmer Flores both ranked in their Top 10 at No. 4 and No.10 respectively.   Both Flores and Wheeler have sen their stocks rise considerably so far this season, especially Flores who did some back-sliding last season.

Chris Young Could Make Pelfrey’s Loss Less Painful

An article by posted on April 28, 2012 0 Comments

The Mets suffered a huge blow to the starting rotation when it was learned that Mike Pelfrey would be out for the remainder of the season (and a good chunk of next season) due to a partial tear of his UCL (Ulnar Collateral Ligament) in his pitching elbow.  Because of the tear, Pelfrey is now […]

MMO Mailbag: Which Prospects Will We See In 2012?

An article by posted on March 24, 2012 0 Comments

I haven’t done one of these in a while mostly because after the Hot Stove season winds down in January, we don’t get as many questions and email until we start getting closer to Opening Day, which I am happy to say is in 12 days. What prospects do you think we’ll definitely see play […]

Matt Harvey Rebounds With Impressive Outing Against Braves

Mets’ top prospect Matt Harvey may have suffered from a case of the jitters during his first spring start against the Nationals, but he was anything but jittery today against the Atlanta Braves. This of course isn’t going to change the fact that that he’ll be starting the season in the minors and was told […]

Lucas Duda: This Guy Is Going To Be A Monster

When Sandy Alderson was asked what his expectations were for Lucas Duda last week on Twitter, he responded, “OPS, High OBP and big power. He put on another show in BP today.” I loved Terry Collins’ take much better. After watching his right fielder take a few pitches over the fence and out of the […]
