From Left Field: Don’t Sleep On Lucas May

Ever since Mike Piazza’s departure, the catcher position for the Mets has been in a state of flux. Paul LoDuca, Brian Schneider, Rod Barajas, Henry Blanco and Ronny Paulino are just some of the catchers to suit up behind the dish. Last season, the Mets handed the mask to young Josh Thole, and he seems […]

Doug’s Dugout: Holy Kervokian, That Didn’t Take Long!

In Doug’s Dugout today, it’s “deja vu all over again,” with the news that David Wright will miss this week due to a nagging rib injury (but last week he had a great day in the weight room-cue the applause). It’s only March, but what Mets’ fan is not a tad alarmed? This is (already) […]

MMO Exclusive Interview: Mets First-Base Prospect Cole Frenzel

I had the pleasure of speaking by phone yesterday with New York Mets, 2011 7th round draft choice, minor league first-baseman Cole Frenzel. I was able to throw a great many questions Cole’s way, and he fielded them all sure-handedly, without so much as a bobble. Cole told me he had left the chilly clime of […]

Lucas Duda: This Guy Is Going To Be A Monster

When Sandy Alderson was asked what his expectations were for Lucas Duda last week on Twitter, he responded, “OPS, High OBP and big power. He put on another show in BP today.” I loved Terry Collins’ take much better. After watching his right fielder take a few pitches over the fence and out of the […]

Morning Grind: Piazza Should Have His Number Retired Regardless Of HOF Results

An article by posted on February 23, 2012 0 Comments

Last week we learned from Dave Lennon of Newsday that the Mets are waiting for Mike Piazza to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for them to retire number 31. For me, that takes away from the honor of retiring someone’s number. It should not be about if someone else sees him as […]

Get To Know Mets Pitching Prospect Rob Carson

I contacted Rob Carson, left-handed pitcher for the New York Mets by phone on Monday, less than a week before he is due to leave for spring training in Port. St. Lucie. This year spring training will be a little different for Carson, because he will be in the big league camp for the first time, […]

Mets Love Songs

I wasn’t really a huge fan of Twitter when it first came out, and in fact I was late to the party and only signed up in late 2010 I think. However, lately I’ve seen the light and actually enjoy Twitter as a means to stay connected with other Mets fans, other Mets bloggers, and […]

What Will We See Out Of Lucas Duda in 2012

After struggling in 29 games in 2010, Lucas Duda came roaring back in 2011, posting a .292 batting average in 100 games played over 301 at-bats. Duda stroked 21 doubles, 10 home runs and 50 RBI, and showed he could be a nice cog in the Mets lineup. So after a nice showing last year from […]
