MMO Exclusive Interview With Mets Prospect, RHP Akeel Morris

I was able to interview Akeel last week and he was nice enough to answer some questions for our readers. This is what he had to say: Petey:  First of all Akeel, congratulations on a terrific season in 2011. Your development over the last two seasons has been fun to watch and you have been making great progress. Thank you so much for sharing a little of your time. The readers at...

Radio Q&A: Is there any chance the Mets trade Wright?

Earlier this month, Matthew Cerrone was a guest on WHRW 90.5 FM in Binghamton. Here is a quick back-and-forth from a discussion about David Wright: WHRW 90.5 FM: A lot of times when people look at the salary that the Mets have tied up for the next few years they try looking at how to get rid of some of the bigger contracts. David Wright’s name keeps coming up. To me, I think it’s...

Photo: Ruben Tejada, 2001 Little League World Series – I think this was taken last year

This photo was taken in 2001 of Ruben Tejada on the Team Panama for the Little League World Series. But, I’m pretty sure this photo was taken a year ago. The guy looks like he’s 13 now, right?

Strawberry says 86 Mets would have beat 96 Yankees

There’s no question. You cannot beat the ’86 Mets. The Yankees teams I played on were great teams with great personalities, but they were good guys. The ’86 Mets would’ve been drilling those guys; I just know how our pitching staff was: hit this guy, hit that guy. And those were the kind of guys we were. We were mad, we wanted them to get outside themselves. That’s the...

Happy Birthday Ralph Kiner!

Today is Ralph Kiner’s 89th birthday. How many people would have picked Kiner to be the last living member of the Mets’ original broadcasters? Kiner seemed ancient when I was listening to him as a kid. He kind of reminded me of my dad that way. Neither dad nor Ralph could string a bunch of sentences together without butchering the English language. I didn’t understand how...

Rain could allow Cards' Carpenter to start Game 7

Bruce Hurst was in his room at the Grand Hyatt in New York when he got the call exactly 25 years ago. Because of a rainout, Boston Red Sox manager John McNamara was switching to him as his starter for Game 7 of the World Series against the New York Mets.
