Found January 20, 2013 on Mets Merized Online:
With less than thirty days before pitchers and catchers report to Port St. Lucie for Spring Training there is little excitement for the upcoming season.  Bad baseball may be better than no baseball, but 2013 appears to be another year of tempered expectations for most Mets fans.  As a result, ticket sales and television ratings will likely take yet another hit, but should they?  I’m not about to tell you how to spend your hard earned money, but I am here to tell you that there are plenty of reasons to watch the 2013 New York Mets. The Kids The departure of RA Dickey undoubtedly deals a blow to the starting rotation for this upcoming season, but the youth movement will be in full effect this summer.  The first youngster found his way to the show last fall, when Matt Harvey posted a 3-5 record in ten starts.  However, his record is a poor representation of the 2.73 ERA and 10-plus strike outs per nine innings he posted over that time.  Simply put, Harvey’s performance on the field was...

Santana Aims To Compete In WBC, Alderson Says He’s Ready

Updated on 1/19 Johan Santana is planning to compete in the World Baseball Classic and despite being ineligible because he ended last season on the disabled list, he plans to prove his case that he is 100% healthy and get a waiver.

MMO Mailbag: Wheeler vs. Harvey

I received an email from Justin after I posted about which Mets prospects will make their debut in 2013 and what the odds were. Justin asks… I liked your post about the 2013 Debuts and was wondering if we could see Wheeler or anyone else hit the ground running the same way Matt Harvey did last season. What do you think Wheeler will do when he finally arrives and will he be as good...

Mets and Ex-Mets In The World Baseball Classic

The only current Met that is playing in the WBC this year is David Wright (although Johan Santana wants to play).  The rosters are all currently provisional, so there could be more Mets and exMets added at a later date. I tried to include players who may have been in the Mets farm system at one point in time, but that can be a bit tricky to track. If I forgot anyone please put them...

Who Will The Mets Get To Fill The Rotation?

The Mets have had two things on their agenda this offseason. One of them is acquiring one more rotation arm on a one-year contract. Right now, the Mets starting rotation looks something like this: Johan Santana, Jonathon Niese, Matt Harvey, and Dillon Gee.

Mayo: Wheeler and Syndergaard among Top 10 right-handed pitching prospects

Today Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com, who will break down the...

Do I Really Look Like A Guy With A Plan?

“The Plan” – or trying to see the future forest amidst a bunch of presently broken trees. We may agree or disagree on whether the current rebuilding of the Mets was inevitable or necessary or strictly financially motivated or even a vicious attempt to alienate the fan base. We may agree or disagree on whether the current front office has done well in their dual task of a...
