The signing of Bartolo Colon is an intriguing one. It sends the message that the Mets aren’t throwing in the towel for 2014 with Matt Harvey being out for the season. It’s a huge (sorry, had to throw that in) signing. It means that we’ve added a solid starter that gives us four really good pitchers in the rotation going into opening day. We now have Zack Wheeler, Jon Niese, Dillon Gee, and Colon to […]
There was little confidence for Sandy Alderson going into the offseason. The Mets had spent only $8.5 million the last offseason, so going over that total this time around was inevitable; but just how far would they go? The first issue that was addressed was the outfield problem. First by signing 30-year old Chris Young to a 1-year, $7 million deal, he showed that he was looking for short-term improvement at little cost, reaching into the heavily […]
An MMO Fan Shot by Adam Choit With the Dodgers likely looking to unload an outfielder (possibly during this week’s Winter Meetings), if I were Sandy, I’d definitely look into going after Matt Kemp via trade. Hear me out… Kemp is only 29 and while he won’t come cheap, despite a down season and injuries, I’d think he’ll cost a lot less now than he would have two or three years ago. When completely healthy, Kemp […]
The Mets will introduce Curtis Granderson. at a press conference at the Winter Meetings on Tuesday at 12:30 PM. Granderson will wear uniform No. 3 according to a team announcement. MMO will be on hand, John Delcos will be covering the press event for us and the Q&A session afterward. Granderson, 32, is a three-time All-Star and ranks fifth in the majors with a home run every 15.3 at-bats over the last three seasons. He has […]
Sandy Alderson retreated from a months-long stance that neither Rafael Montero or Noah Syndergaard had any chance of making the Mets starting rotation out of Spring Training. While a guest on WFAN, the Mets GM announced that the plan for these two exciting power arms will be similar to the tracks taken by Zack Wheeler and Matt Harvey. “No chance,” Sandy said. At the time he also said that he expected to see both Syndergaard […]
Jorge Castillo of the Star Ledger reported that the Mets, along with a few other teams, have inquired about Johan Santana. Last week, Santana’s agent Chris Leible tweeted out that Johan is throwing from 150 feet out without any pain right now. Remember, he missed the entire 2013 season and has not pitched since August of 2012. Santana’s career stats with the Mets were pretty solid, with a 3.18 ERA over 717.0 innings pitched. He […]
To my dearest fellow Mets fans. I have been a Mets fan my entire life. I have bled blue and orange for that team in Queens since the day I was born. I am not what one would call a “fair weather fan”, I have stayed to the very last out of 14-2 butt whoopings on the road because I believe in my team (or I’m delusional, which ever suits the situation). I do not […]
Since the New York Mets need pitching, it was discouraging to read reports they are not players for Phil Hughes. Two different sources confirmed they are out on Hughes. Too bad. Of all the players in the free-agent market I thought the Mets had a chance to sign, the 27-year-old Hughes was high on my list. I felt he had the best chance to produce at a minimum cost to the Mets. Yes, he was 4-14 […]
Color me optimistic, but I do not believe the sky is falling in Queens. I heard rumors of such an event. I heard adamant insistence that such rumor was fact. So I decided to be brave, open up my door, look out into the big, bad city and take a look for myself. I looked to my left. I looked to my right. When I didn’t see casualties lying on the ground that were the […]
