These David Wright rumors are just starting to get annoying. For those of you that truly believe that the Mets should trade Wright right now, it’s not smart to trade a star player after he has an awful season!

Hypothetically, if the Mets were to trade Wright at the Trading Deadline after he has had a great first half of the season, that would not be stupid.

But, I’m all for keeping Wright. We CAN’T lose Wright and Reyes within half a year of each other can we?

So until a Mets source says something on the record, don’t believe any Wright rumor that you hear until the season begins.


Mets ornament of the day: David Wright, who is NOT going to the Phillies

Some silly Phillies fans are spreading ugly Twitter rumors that the Mets are going to trade David Wright to their goofy little team.Silly Phillies fans.The team would have to throw in Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, that bell they broke and a Pat's King of Steaks stand to go alongside the Shake Shack for us to even begin the conversation. For one thing, nothing good comes of a trade...

What To Expect From The Mets In 2012

Anthony DiComo talks about what the Mets could expect to do n 2012. I’m not expecting much in 2012 from the Amazins’, especially with a team that must now overcome the losses of Beltran, Reyes and K-Rod from last Opening Day’s roster. Like last year, they will once again be banking on a healthy return from Johan Santana who now finds himself a year older at 33 and still hasn’t...

Mets Edition: All I Want For Christmas!!

Stability: [stuh-bil-i-tee] noun 1: the state or quality of being stable.2: firmness in position. 3: continuance without change; permanence.I know a lot of people might say money, but in my opinion if there is one thing that the New York Mets need it would be stability.  This is a pretty new problem for the Mets and not a problem when it relates to the team's front office....

MMO Flashback: Mets Trade Le Grande Orange

Here’s something I dug up from a couple of years ago that brings us back to the hot stove season of 1975, when the Mets also traded one of the team’s most popular players – a move they would eventually regret. Mike Lloyd does a nice job in the re-telling of what happened back then. Examining Hot Stove history from the Past. December 12th 1975 – The New York Mets trade Rusty...

Murphy is ready for the spring

The Daily News reported that the New York Mets infielder Daniel Murphy is healthy, and looking forward to spring training. “I feel great,” Murphy told the Daily News. “I kind of polished off my rehab about a month ago, moved into more of a strengthening phase. I’ve had a real good offseason, and I feel really good. I’ll be full-bore in spring training.” Daniel Murphy...

Mounting Debt, Falling Revenues, Huge Concerns

Richard Sandomir of the NY Times writes that MLB is growing concerned with the Mets’ mounting debt and falling revenues. But the Mets worry Major League Baseball enough to be seen as a troubled franchise on a short tether. Their $430 million loan on the team is due in 2014. Their $25 million loan from M.L.B. is past due and repayment has been extended. They recently borrowed ...

Mets worrying MLB with their mounting debt

“Sports teams do not always make money, and debt is a legitimate way to fuel their growth, as it is in real estate, where Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, the Mets’ owners, made their money and reputations. … But the Mets worry Major League Baseball enough to be seen as a troubled franchise on a short tether. They owe $430 million to a group of lenders that is due in 2014. Their...

MMO Flashback: Ya Gotta Believe–Words To Live By

This edition of MMO Flashback goes back to December of 2008 when Rob Silverman who you all know as Tie Dyed, penned a heartwarming tribute to one of the all time great Mets, Tug McGraw. Enjoy! Throughout our storied history, we’ve had more than our share of characters and colorful figures. The fist-pumping curtain calls of Gary Carter have been replaced by the dancing of Jose...

Oakland designated two the Mets should be interested in...

After the Gio Gonzalez trade the Oakland A's had to designate two players for assignment, two days before Christmas Laden Powell and Jai Miller found out they are no longer on Oakland's major league roster. Powell is the least interesting of the two to me because of the signing of Rob Johnson, Powell is a 29 y/o right handed catcher who was a first round pick in 2004 by Oakland...

Mets grabbed headlines in a variety of ways

The Mets certainly have a way of making things memorable, don't they? From the opening days of January to the dawn of a hopeful spring, from midsummer injuries to late-year disappointments, from Jose Reyes to, well, Jose Reyes, the Mets managed to make a sub-.500 season both fascinating and entertaining nearly every step of the way.

Bill Price: How long can it go before Selig steps in?

In a post to his blog for the Daily News, Bill Price writes: Letting Jose Reyes walk – in a vacuum – was a good baseball decision. With his injury history, six years is risky. Still, the perception is that the Mets don’t have enough money to keep their homegrown stars – and that is not only bad for Met business, it’s bad for baseball business… especially in New York City...
