Found January 31, 2013 on Razzball:
I was going to start this post about Dillon Gee by making fun of how to pronounce his name but MLB did a great job of that already. And by 'did a great job' I mean they set up a fun premise and Gee acted like what he was - an athlete put in front of a camera who can't convey humor. Hey, we can't all be Peyton Manning. Sorry for cross-pollinating your sports worlds, Razzball, but you see I am Sky from the Fantasy Football side so you're just going to have to deal with it. I'll lay the BABIP on you just as frequently as I lay the YAC cuz I got game and I bring the swag, bro! #YOLO! Sorry, thought I was a frat boy there for a minute. Now let me channel my inner deep pitcher caller like I did last year with another Met, Jon Niese, and see if I can get you all geed out about Gee for 2013 fantasy baseball...

Mets Now & Then: Greg Burke and Terry Leach

The Mets signed Greg Burke on 11/7/12.  He is a 30 year old righthander with only one season of MLB experience to his credit – 48 games for the 2009 San Diego Padres. Ho-hum. But wait…He’s a sidearmer!  He pitched at AA/AAA for the Baltimore Orioles last year and saved 17 games.  He posted a 1.53 ERA.  He demonstrated excellent command with a 2.09 BB/9. Who does that sound...

Mets still in the relief market..

Jon Heyman just tweeted that the Mets are still in the relief market after signing LaTroy Hawkins.  Like I said as long as Hawkins isn't the primary guy they sign to back-up Francisco then its a very good move.  It appears that the Mets will bring in another former closer whether it's Wilson, Krod or even a return of Rauch...

MMO Book Review: Swinging ’73: Baseball’s Wildest Season

A couple of weeks ago, the great Mets historian and author Matt Silverman, was nice enough to give me a sneak preview into his newest publication, Swinging ’73: Baseball’s Wildest Season.
