Featured Post: Are Dillon Gee and Jon Niese Keepers or Trade Bait?

Who’s ready for another Mets offseason? Well like it or not, here it comes.

To Boldly Go Where No GM Has Gone Before: Why the Mets Will Never Win with Alderson

A couple of nights ago I’m on Facebook checking out a page for fellow Mets fans. We’re all rejoicing in the Yankees misery. I, too, add a few comments and threw in a joke about ‘A-Roid.’ Someone else commented about us playing spoiler and knocking the Nats further back. Then, it hit me. This is what we’ve become. […]

Heyman Says Choo Fits The Bill For The Mets This Winter

I wanted to update this post with two quick items that were reported in the last 24 hours. John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer who covers the Reds and has better intel than some of the speculation I’m seeing elsewhere (MetsBlog 4/$40), says that Choo’s strong season should put agent Scott Boras in a position to ask […]

MMO Mailbag: Do You Believe The Mets Will Spend This Offseason?

John B. asks… Do you really believe the Mets will spend this offseason or that they will contend in 2014? Joe D. replies… In a word, yes. I do believe they will spend as they do have many areas they need to address, and they are fresh out of All Star caliber players to trade […]

Harvey News Sends The Fan Base Reeling

At this point, yesterday’s news feels like a bad dream, but the unfortunate reality is that we may not see Matt Harvey pitch again until 2015.  Once again it seems as though we’ve been left at the altar and many are desperate for answers. How on earth could the team’s new ace, our lone bright […]

MMO Fan Shot: Examining The Shortstop Market For The Mets

While we have spent much time debating over whether to trade for Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar, the word out of Arlington is that neither Profar or Andrus will be dangled this offseason. Rather, Ian Kinsler is the player the Rangers would prefer to trade. Profar is 21; Andrus is 24; Kinsler is 31. Therefore, […]
