What kind of role can we expect from Justin Turner this year?

Depending on how things shake out this year, the Mets might need to turn to Justin Turner a lot more this year than they anticipate. Turner turned in a solid 2011 campaign batting .260 with four home runs and 51 RBI’s in 435 at-bats while chipping in at second base, third base and in a pinch at shortstop. With the Mets suffering from so many injuries last year (Daniel Murphy...

Mets Avoid Arbitration With Ramon Ramirez

According to Enrique Rojas of ESPN, the Mets and Ramon Ramirez avoided arbitration and agreed on a one-year deal for $2.65 million dollars. Ramirez could be the leading contender for the Mets setup role in the bullpen, and he can also close if the need arises. The 30-year-old right-hander had a 2.66 ERA in 66 appearances for the Giants last season. The Mets still have Mike Pelfrey...

After an offseason that seemed to be quite boring in the minds of most fans. People ask the question: Do the Mets have any chance to make the playoffs this year?

The Mets aren’t some talentless team...

Comparing Pelf to the market

Mike Pelfrey and the Mets settle on a one year deal avoiding for arbitration, $5.675 M got the Mets 33 starts averaging 5.84 innings per start for 193 innings with an ERA of 4.74, WHIP 1.47 and a 7-13 record. I'm no fan of Pelfrey's and wish the Mets had dealt him as a change of scenery guy, but lets compare him to the market to see what type of value we got for him.  I...

In the St. Lucie News, Alex Butler talked with Mets fans who waited in line last Saturday outside Digital Domain Park to buy tickets to see the Mets this Spring Training. “Fans were even greeted by Mets second baseman Dan Murphy, who stopped by to shake hands and show his gratitude,” according to the report.

Would You Decline Wright’s Option To Sign Josh Hamilton Next Offseason?

After posing this question via twitter, a debate ensued between myself and several Met bloggers including our own Joe D. and Brandon Butler. I thought I would ask the MMO faithful this same query: Would you do anything to sign Josh Hamilton next winter? Even if it meant losing David Wright? Personally, I think it is something to consider. Now that the Rangers have inked Japanese...
