MMO Flashback: Did Santana Commit Career Suicide?

Oh how I hate “I told you so” posts, but MMO’s John Delcos nailed it. Santana’s left shoulder is not getting better and it isn’t unfair to wonder if the prideful or stubborn lefthander – take your pick – may have committed career suicide on March 3, a quiet Sunday that turned into one of […]

Who Will Have The Better Season, Cowgill or Valdespin?

     Clayton – Jordany Valdespin, I see Cowgill getting a hot start then hitting a wall. Valdespin however I could see being the best run producer in the outfield in 2013. Adam – Collin Cowgill because he’s a better defender and has better plate discipline/selection at the plate. Valdespin will hit for more power and […]

Mets’ Matt Harvey Could Be The Next Big Thing

It’s not exactly the variety of a film festival when watching the Mets in spring training. It’s the Nationals, Braves, Marlins and Cardinals on a rotating basis. For the Mets in Port St. Lucie, it’s like watching the same episodes of Seinfeld over and over. After awhile, you know how “The Contest’’ will end. For a young guy […]

The question remains however, which inning does the young […]

Meet 2012 Draft Pick RHP Robert Whalen, A Die-Hard Met Fan

In 2012, we saw Gavin Cecchini and Kevin Plawecki hog the spotlight as the first round picks and the most promising new members of the Mets minor league system. Behind them followed many new and talented players that came into the fold of the orange and blue. I was so excited as a fan last […]
