I have to admit I didn’t really want to write this. Don’t get me wrong I appreciate every opportunity I’m given to write for MMO. I just tend to find it difficult to write about, well, nothing; or at least rehash what the general consensus is. Ok, that’s probably a bit harsh not to mention encroaching on mamby pamby land – especially considering the positive events of the last few days – but I’ve had [...]
The Sandy Alderson introduction and press conference just concluded and I hope most of you had an opportunity to tune in and listen to his refreshing message. Here are a few things that came out of the Q&A part of the event and I apologize for not jotting down the beat writers who asked the questions. Alderson was gracious, spoke cohesively and confidently, and most of all he had presence. His voice commanded the room. [...]
Like many of you, I have been paying attention to the World Series. I knew if just one of either the Phillies or the Yankees were in it, I’d have a problem because I’d be too emotionally invested. If it was both, I wouldn’t be able to watch it at all. However, two teams that I can kind of like each in their own way are playing in it, so I can sit back and [...]

Some have said there could be an announcement by the end of this week as to which of them will get the nod. Personally I hope the next GM is Alderson. I don’t like some of what I’ve read about Byrnes, but which ever one becomes the new GM, the one thing that person must do is come up with a [...]
We’ve spent the last week talking about who will be our next manager and GM. As Sandy Alderson recently moved to the top of the GM list, most Mets fans are clamoring for either Wally Backman or Bobby Valentine to take over as skipper. My question is: Why not both? It seems improbable, almost impossible, but it makes sense. Bobby can be our next GM. Wally can be our next manager. Valentine had been considered for [...]
Not too much Mets news to report the last few days, but there is an interesting article by Joel Sherman of the NY Post who is starting to sound like a campaign manager for Sandy Alderson these days. I was a little shocked by the way he began his article by saying that once commissioner Bud Selig granted permission for Alderson to interview with Mets next Thursday or Friday, “that meant he wanted Alderson to get [...]
