  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 […]

What a wonderful Saturday morning. I feel totally invigorated as a Mets fan today, and I’m looking forward to what the coming days will bring. Watching Sandy Alderson yesterday was like a breath of fresh air – fresh air I haven’t breathed in the last 2-3 years where the Mets are concerned. I was captivated […]

An article by posted on October 26, 2010 0 Comments

On Friday MLBTR posted that the Mets had about $108 million dollars in commitments based on data from Cots Contracts for the 2011 season. The problem with that number was that it left off a lot of data while at the same time included players bonuses in that figure that have already been paid. I […]

The 2010 Postseason has seen an impressive resurgence in the art of pitching. So far six shutouts have been recorded. Only twice in major league history has there been more in a postseason, the latest being in 2001 when seven were tossed. MLB has a cumulative ERA of 3.35, the only team that seems to have […]

I Hope The Next Mets Manager Is Ryne Sandberg

An article by posted on October 22, 2010 0 Comments

Way back in early August, I wrote a post entitled “Forget Bobby Valentine and Consider Ryne Sandberg“. I always loved Ryne  Sandberg as a player. He played the game right and wasn’t afraid to get his uniform dirty. He was a true student of the game and always a leader in the clubhouse. I always […]

Omar Minaya – The Company Man?

An article by posted on October 11, 2010 0 Comments

I’ve tried my very best to call upon the better angels to guide my thoughts on the recent firings of Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel.  What seems to be becoming the yearly sideshow where the Wilpons are apologizing in some fashion for the Mets abject failures, I can finally say it’s taken its toll. Normally I’m a […]

Mets Need To Do The Wright Thing

An article by posted on October 8, 2010 0 Comments

The Cardinals didn’t make the post-season this year but I don’t expect them to be trading Pujols. The Rockies didn’t make it either but somehow I don’t see them shopping Troy Tulowitzki. The Padres just missed but I am pretty confident they’ll hang on to Adrian Gonzalez. So, why oh why, would the Mets be […]

Will Mets Explore Trading Reyes?

An article by posted on October 7, 2010 0 Comments

Whomever the Mets hire as general manager I will be curious to see his take on Jose Reyes. Will he believe the team should be built around Reyes, or would the Mets be better served to deal him as an attempt to plug several holes, notably in the rotation and bullpen? The path of least […]
