From Left Field: What Could Have Been If Mets Signed Jose Reyes

I was listening to WFAN this morning, and Evan Roberts brought up an interesting point. He said that the Mets two gaping holes right now are shortstop and leadoff hitter. Hmm, not too long ago, the Mets had arguably the best in the game at both: Jose Reyes. But of course, we know what happened […]

Has The Confidence Of Some Returning Players Been Shaken?

The Mets front office, purposefully or not, is damaging the confidence of their young players. The likely starting lineup this year will feature players who have been the subjects of trade rumors, mid-season minor league demotion, or work ethic criticism. It is difficult to pinpoint the result of such degradation yet, but it is hard to […]

MMO Fan Shot: Going To WAR For Stephen Drew?

An MMO Fan Shot by Steven Pacchiano Call me old fashioned, call me a dinosaur, I’m 39 years old BUT I still have 20/20 vision. I understand the concept of WAR and all the stats that go into it, but I really prefer to look at the classic numbers and watch the player play in order […]

The Long And The Short On Carlos Beltran

The Baseball Gods smiled down on Flushing all season. It seemed more than just a coincidence that as the Mets paid homage to the ‘86 Championship, 20 years later we were destined to again make the dream come true. The ’06 Mets played with confidence and swagger. David Wright was a clean-cut leader, an athlete […]

When Is A Good OBP Not So Good

Egads… What’s that picture of Luis Castillo doing up there? I bet you didn’t think you’d see him again, right? While I was reading through some comments, I came across an interesting exchange I serendipitously started when I wrote that signing Stephen Drew could end up being as bad as the Luis Castillo signing. Then […]

As the Mets continue to try and address the shortstop position, they reportedly still have interest in signing former Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew. The Red Sox remain interested as well.

I’d Be Fine With Giving Ruben Tejada Another Chance – And A Short Leash

I know I am in the the minority on this, but I would have no objection to giving Ruben Tejada one more shot. Huh? But why, oh why? Because I still think he can be a decent player. Ruben is never going to be Jose Reyes. He is never going to be a superstar. He […]

The Curtis Granderson Story: Have We Seen This Movie Before?

We’ve been waiting all winter for our team to do something. Yesterday, our inactive front office became active by signing Curtis Granderson for 4 years/$60 million. But is the waiting over? Will this be our only major move or will it be the first of several? Is this the first baby step in bringing a winner […]
