MMO Mailbag: Will Mets Be A Playoff Team In 2015?

Are the Mets as close as Sandy Alderson says we are, and will the Mets be in the post season in 2015? That is the big question. This upcoming off-season is very crucial. There’s no reason that this team shouldn’t be a legitimate contender in 2015. And incremental moves could be key to getting the Mets over the hump. I´m quite confident that 85 wins is highly likely barring any...

Yoenis Céspedes Could Be Interesting Target For Sandy Alderson

First of all, I can’t take credit for formulating this entire idea on my own. It was a Twitter conversation involving my brother that actually started me down this line of thinking. Red Sox outfielder Yoenis Céspedes was acquired at the trading deadline from the Oakland Athletics for their long time ace Jon Lester.
