Is Roy Oswalt An Option For The Mets?

An article by posted on February 21, 2012 0 Comments

With Roy Oswalt still on the market, seemingly holding out for either the Rangers or Cardinals to make a decision, will the right-hander be left with an ultimatum similar to the Manny Ramirez situation a few years ago and sign with a willing team or will he sit the year out in hopes of getting […]

MMO Exclusive Interview: Mets Pitching Prospect Logan Verrett

I got in touch with NY Mets 2011 3rd round draft choice Logan Verrett the other day. Verrett a 6’3″ right-hander, is in his final off-season preparations before heading out to spring training at Port St. Lucie in less than two weeks. Logan was nice enough to fill us in on his feelings on being […]

The Untouchables

Almost as predictable as the Mets falling short in the wins column these days is the projected fall-out that occurs after each loss.  Every beat writer or sports news outlet is trying to find the scapegoat.  I find that laughable, since I believe Jerry Manuel, Howard Johnson or Omar Minaya are symptoms of a larger […]

Done Deal! Jayson Stark of ESPN.com is reporting that Houston Astros ace Roy Oswalt has agreed to a deal that will send him to the Philadelphia Phillies for J.A. Happ and two minor leaguers, Jonathon Villar and Anthony Gose. In other words, the Phillies keep their top two hitting and top two pitching prospects. That would be […]

Every now and then, my corny side rears it’s ugly head and you end up getting a silly post like this. But this is supposed to be fun, right? With the trade deadline only five days away, things are getting kind of dicey. Lee and Haren are already gone, but there’s still some solid choices […]

SI.com’s Jon Heyman, ranks the 22 best available pitchers at the trade deadline now that Cliff Lee is off the board. 1. Dan Haren, Diamondbacks, starting pitcher.

The All-Star game is behind us, and I’d like to thank Brian McCann for the game-winning hit that will give the Mets home field advantage in the World Series. You think that’s far-fetched?  Well, it’s not.  The Mets are just 4 games back of Atlanta and have a lot to be optimistic about.  Carlos Beltran […]

Looking Just a Few Days Ahead

An article by posted on July 7, 2010 0 Comments

The Mets are going to be playing for first place this weekend.  Not against the Phillies, but against a resurgent Braves team that is making it feel like the early part of the decade when these two teams were battling for NL East dominance.  And if Jonathan Niese and the Mets can take the rubber […]

Attention Mets Fans: Wait Till Next Year, Please

Rarely, if ever, has a team gone from 92 losses in a season to over 90 victories and a World Championship the following year.  That is, however, what all Mets fans are fantasizing about for 2010.  And with the way the Mets have played in June, expectations have risen, and demands on the team and […]

Cliff Lee…The Final Word…Really.

An article by posted on June 26, 2010 0 Comments

A few weeks ago, before the blogosphere erupted with stories about the Mets trading for either Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt, I wrote an article here on MMO, The New Mets Ace In The Hole. Since then there have been more Cliff Lee/Roy Oswalt stories than Charlie Sheen has DUI’s. I think Michael Branda (Jessup) […]
