There are a ton of people who write about the Mets and I am happy to say that most of them seem to be good people, too. I guess it is not a huge surprise that the guys at the biggest sites – Cerrone and Baron at MetsBlog and Simon, Kannengeiser, Artus and crew over at Amazin’ Avenue – are top notch. But it seems that no matter what size Mets blog you run across, you will find good people. Ed Leyro is the brains behind Studious Metsimus. I don’t really know Ed except through his writing but I like the content he produces. I reached out and asked if he would do a Q&A and he immediately said yes. Then I gave him a bunch of questions and asked him to turn it around in a day. And he did without a word of complaint. More importantly, he gave interesting answers. Below are his thoughts on blogging, being a fan and some Mets-specific questions. How would you describe the Mets blogosphere? I’d describe the Mets blogosphere this way: we’re everywhere! I can’t think of another fan ...

Hits And Misses: Mets Season Tix Are Mega-Cool, Forbes Doesn’t Impress Me, Johan and Dickey Do

It’s been a heck of a week for me with the publishers deadline for our 2012 Mets Annual upon me and various other things, but I always find time for my Mets. Before I get into some things, our friends at Real Dirty Mets have some openings for new writers. If you’re interested in trying your hand at blogging or already blog and want to contribute to them, give’em a shout. If...

Let Ruben Tejada Be Ruben Tejada, Whatever That Is

Andy McCullough of the Star-Ledger had a good read this morning on Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada. In it he points out that Tejada should simply focus his game on getting on base. He compares Tejada to Jose Reyes at the same age. Compared with his predecessor, Tejada is smaller, slower, more placid, a possessor of a more down-tuned personality. But he remains, as hitting coach Dave...

Old Time Mets – Warren Spahn

Warren Spahn was one of the greatest lefthanded pitchers of all time. Warren Spahn also pitched for the Mets. Unfortunately, those two facts are mutually exclusive. Spahn was a great pitcher for the Braves for many years, a perennial 20-game winner and a real workhorse, regularly logging over 250 innings and 20 complete games a year. In an era when most pitchers called it quits at...

Mets Optimistic on Santana

The New York Mets have to be pleased with the progress made by Johan Santana.  Santana turned in an impressive performance in Wednesday’s Spring Training game against the World Series champion Cardinals as he dueled Jake Westbrook.  Santana pitched 6 innings, struck out 6, and did not walk a batter. PALM BALL: Johan Santana is a buy for our 2012 fantasy draft. World Series hero...

MMO Fan Shot: Defending Minaya’s Minor Leagues

One of the misconceptions about Omar Minaya’s tenure as GM is that he ignored the minor leagues, and did a bad job of developing players. But the Mets do have a solid group of young players from Minaya. We have quality players in both the majors, and minors from him.  Lucas Duda who was drafted in the 7th round in the 2007 MLB draft, last year did a great job filling in for Carlos...

Gary Carter ticket for game 8

@Mets ticket for Game 8 twitter.com/LeighJC_NYM/st… — Leigh Castergine (@LeighJC_NYM) March 22, 2012   Pretty cool if you ask me… I knew the Mets would do stuff like this this season. I’m sure for the 50th anniversary they will put a combination of Mets legends and current Mets like Ike Davis, David Wright, Johan Santana, and R.A. Dickey. The Mets are starting to get it...

Depth Is Not The Mets Strength

Ever since losing the NLCS to the St. Louis Cardinals in 2006 when they were destined to win, it seems the Mets have been a snake-bitten franchise. The collapses of 2007-08, the injury plagued years from 2009-11 and of course the Madoff ponzi scheme have marred the past few years for this franchise. The combination of injuries and the lack of spending power have meant that the organization...

Cardinals, Mets play to 10-inning tie

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. (AP) -- Ike Davis and Lucas Duda each hit home runs as the New York Mets' tied the St. Louis Cardinals 6-6 in 10 innings Saturday. It was the first homer for Davis, who was diagnosed earlier in spring training with what is likely valley fever, which can cause extreme fatigue. Davis hit a three-run shot off Lance Lynn in the first. Cardinals center fielder...

Finger Lickin' Slop

With the news that Mike Pelfrey has been pitching for pretty much the entire spring with a high ankle sprain coming out in the past week, it put his horrific spring in some semblance of perspective. Now we're talking about perspective that's somewhat skewered when it comes to a man who has lost pretty much all benefit of the doubt, mind you. But perspective does exist if...
