With Omar Quintanilla quickly sliding to his career norms, in other words Omar being Omar, perhaps it’s time to reconsider giving Ruben Tejada a pardon and allowing the 22-year old another shot at redemption. Quintanilla is now batting .143 (5-for-35) in his last ten games with 11 strikeouts. Overall, his average has dropped to .31 for the season, a shade above his career mark. Meanwhile, back on the ranch, Tejada took his demotion to Las […]
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are considering Jenrry Mejia for a start next Saturday. The Mets play a doubleheader on Friday in Washington, and will need an extra pitcher on Saturday. Also being considered, but I view as extreme long-shots, are Chris Schwinden, Jacob deGrom, and Rafael Montero – neither of whom are on the 40-man roster. MMO Prediction: Mejia will make his 2013 debut and have a solid performance after a […]

Every play in every game has some effect on the odds of winning baseball game. Whether you are down by ten runs in the second inning or tied up in the bottom of the ninth, every action can be measured. Baseball has been played for over a century and a half, and Major League Baseball has been around for over a century, and most situations have been played out over and over again hundreds of […]
With the second half of the 2013 season coming up, and the Mets’ playoff hopes all but in the past, it seems right to start thinking about the young talent that could be brought up to Queens once the minor league season is finished in September. Here are my predictions for who that young talent will be. Pitchers Giancarlo Alvarado – Heard the name? Probably not. Alvarado, although not young at 35, was signed by […]
Finally, a Brooklyn Cyclones that did not include a rain delay or extra innings… The Cyclones continued their climb to the .500 mark on the season with a 7-5 victory Wednesday night at MCU Park in Coney Island over the Mahoning Valley Scrappers – the Single-A short season affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Brooklyn moves to 13-16 on the season. It was Nintendo night at the ballpark, and there were times where it seemed like […]
Yesterday, the New York Mets announced that Mike Piazza, the greatest home run-hitting catcher of all-time, will be inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame on Fan Appreciation Day Sunday, September 29 at Citi Field. Piazza will become the 27th member of the Mets Hall of Fame during the Mets Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony prior to the 1:10 p.m. game vs. the Milwaukee Brewers. It’s about time… But why stop there? Here’s something photoshopped […]
I wanted to update this post with a chart by Mr. North Jersey who plotted David Wright’s first 87 games for each season of his career. It helps to illustrate further why I don’t see 2013 as Wright’s career year, at least not so far… Hat tip to MNJ… Original Post: Though I enjoy employing and often using many of the new advanced metrics in my own posts now, I still see some of these […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News, spoke to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking who said that the Mets are more likely to keep Marlon Byrd this summer, rather than trade him before the Trade Deadline on July 31. We can debate the pros and cons of that, but I want to discuss Byrd in a different context for now. When you think about a player that deserves to be MLB Comeback […]
