Dillon Gee appears to be the Mets’ odd man out

Mets fans are already anticipating the return of Matt Harvey on Opening Day 2015.  The rising star pitcher is through his rehabilitation from Tommy John surgery and set to lead the pitching rotation into the next great era of Mets baseball next year.  Unfortunately, someone will have to relinquish their slot on the starting staff to enable this upgrade.  It’s still early in...

Sandy Alderson On Mets Prospects: Matz, Conforto, Plawecki, Nimmo

MMO’s John Bernhardt had Sandy Alderson on as his guest during today’s Tip-Off show on WIOX Radio. Here is what he had to say about several of the Mets prospects. Steven Matz, LHP “He had a very good season in 2013, and exceeded that in 2014, both at St. Lucie and at Binghamton. His numbers were very similar at both places, which is very positive given the fact that he had...

New York Mets free agent projections: the bullpen

With the conclusion of the World Series yesterday, the MLB offseason has officially begun. As free agency begins, the New York Mets are in a somewhat odd situation in that they only have one pending free agent (not counting the retiring Bobby Abreu). That unique player is Daisuke Matsuzaka. Matsuzaka’s pending free agency leads me to begin my offseason analysis with the Mets...

Off-Season Clues From The Mets: On New Fences And Hitting Coaches

The World Series ended last night, you may have heard. As soon as the ball settled into Pablo Sandoval’s glove near the third base coach’s box, we on the outside could detect an almost audible click: the Silly Season has begun. Free agency 2014-15 is exactly five-and-a-half hours old at this writing and I’m sure there are some Met fans already wondering why GM Sandy Alderson...

MMO Roundtable: What To Do With Ruben Tejada

Deciding what to do with Ruben Tejada is somewhat of a difficult decision this offseason.  He definitely improved from his horrid 2013 season to become serviceable defensively, and he has always hit lefties relatively well. He’s not a starting shortstop option for the Mets going forward, but as I’ve stated in the past, he can have value in a platoon role, or strictly as a backup...

Mets360 2014 projection review: Vic Black

To wrap up our Projection Review series, we’ll take a look at one of the top relievers in 2014 for the Mets. As stated in the initial projection, “Vic Black throws gas.” Black stayed true to that assessment by averaging 95.7 mph on his fastball. However, Black also learned this season how to use his devastating curveball to more effect, tossing it nearly 27% of the time, while...

Mets Should Be Wary Of Cespedes

Just because Yoenis Cespedes is available doesn’t mean the New York Mets should trade for him. The Red Sox want to deal the temperamental outfielder, who recently dumped his agent to sign with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation agency. Naturally, speculation links him to the Mets. Roc Nation is getting a Scott Boras-like reputation in it wants to get top dollar, which means the Mets will lover...

Mets Injury Update: David Wright making great progress in shoulder rehab

With one week left in his six-week shoulder rehab program, New York Mets third baseman David Wright reports very steady progress with no setbacks. Although not officially placed on the disabled list, Wright sat out the final 21 days of the season with a sprained left shoulder, and he has spent most of the time since then getting that shoulder back into shape. It appears that he...

Why Mets Can’t Attract Quality Free Agents

The Mets’ inability to hire a hitting coach illustrates indecision, which is one of several reasons why marquee free agents won’t come here. Among the others: New York: The city can be daunting for someone who only experienced it in a hotel room and stadium. It is very expensive to live here, crowded and there’s the media crush. The Yankees: Considering the above factors, if...
