As Major League Baseball moves into its All-Star Break, it’s time to reflect on the Mets and what they need to do to improve the team in the second half.  Whereas many people have been clamoring for another starting pitcher before the trading deadline on July 31, I don’t think that’s the answer.  In fact, […]

This week, I had a conversation with a source who is very close to a member of the Mets organization. This Mets source told him that the Mets will not be spending large amounts of money on any players any time soon.

When I first heard rumbling during Spring Training that pitching phenom prospect Jenrry Mejia may be brought up with the big club to make Jerry Manuel and Omar Minaya look good…erm, uh…I mean of course to get Mejia adjusted to major league hitting, well, I was dead set against the idea.  See, while the Mets […]

Throughout my time writing for Mets Merized, I’ve always been one who preaches the rare virtue of patience.  The formula is straightforward.  Keep and develop your minor leaguers, complement them with a few key free agents, and over time you will have built a long lasting winning team.  It’s a simple theory but of course […]

They are the linchpins of the field – the game is theirs and the wins and losses go on their personal records – forever. […]

Ryan Zimmerman’s sacrifice fly in the ninth inning gave the Washington Nationals a 2-1 victory over the Mets, who wasted a solid start from Johan Santana. Game Notes Johan Santana rebounded nicely and gave the Mets all you could ask for pitching seven solid innings and allowing just one earned run. He let up six hits, a walk and […]
