The Binghamton Mets have announced their 2013 Opening Day roster in preparation of their 22nd season in the Southern Tier. The roster is loaded with new faces, as 16 players will wear the B-Mets jersey for the first time in their careers. Binghamton is happy to welcome back 9 players who took the field last season for the New York Mets Double-A affiliate. Starting Rotation: Four newcomers will highlight Binghamton’s five-man rotation, including Opening Night […]
I’ve been reading many pieces in the national and local press suggesting that 2013 stands to be an especially fallow year for the New York baseball fan. The reasoning behind this assertion is based almost entirely on two assumptions: 1. The Mets will continue to tread the path of mediocrity with little or no hope of securing a post-season berth. 2. The Yankees, with their roster gutted of talent by injuries and free agent defections […]
Collin Cowgill is MMO’s 2013 Top Spring Performer Spring training is a time for veterans to get their work in as they prepare for the 162 game grind they are about to embark on. While the veterans are gearing up, there are usually a few roster spots that are up for grabs. These spots are usually a battle between some aging veterans looking to catch on as a reserve, or a young upstart looking to […]

The bullpen now projects as follows: Bobby Parnell Brandon Lyon LaTroy Hawkins Scott Atchison Josh Edgin Greg Burke Jeurys Familia Scott Rice So here’s today’s moves as announced by the Mets: They have […]
At this point, I think everyone knows that I am a Matt den Dekker fan. I’ve argued in his favor since early spring training, when he leaped through the St. Lucie night and pulled a would-be home run from beyond the left-centerfield wall. Many Mets fans never knew who den Dekker was until that moment. That catch brought him into the limelight. But maybe it was just one catch, people thought. If you’ve read the scouting […]
Reliever Elvin Ramirez has been traded to the Los Angeles Angels for cash considerations to free up a spot on their 40 Man Roster. That they got anything for him is a mind-blower to me. His 5.48 ERA in 20 MLB appearances will hardly be missed. This one was the easiest cut/trade/release of all. The Mets’ 40-man roster now stands at 38. In other Mets news, the team announced their rotation today. Jon Niese will start Opening Day against the Padres, followed […]
NL West At A Glance Arizona Diamondbacks: The D’Backs made tough decisions this off-season They decided to build their roster based on their team concept, and not based on just overall talent. Some think Justin Upton was the move that proved their concept, but I think it was sending Trevor Bauer to Cleveland. Kevin Towers and Kirk Gibson have an idea of what they want this team to look and act like, and they apparently did […]
After he played in a minor league game today, the Mets softened their position on whether David Wright could be ready for Opening Day. When Wright was pulled from the World Baseball Classic last week, manager Terry Collins was thinking a month. Not any longer. “I would not be surprised if David Wright is there Opening Day,’’ Collins told reporters today. “There will be a lot of things considered here on Thursday or Friday.’’ The […]
If you are like me, you look forward to a time when the major rebuilding is done and the Mets can (hopefully) embark on an extended period of high level competitiveness and play meaningful games (to borrow a phrase) each fall. Assuming that time is near (2014? 2015?), what will the team’s roster look like? I offer a speculative peek from one fan’s perspective that will focus on internal options: FIRST BASE: This should be […]
