In the end it was a disappointing season. Let's not lose the fact that they did win 101 games last year. They were a playoff team and an elite team in the Major Leagues. There are more improvements that they could make to bolster the roster. Before they do that though, they have to make [...]
In last week’s games, things were setting up nicely. At 8 p.m. my picks had gone 6-5 and the two remaining games were my best bets. It felt like an 8-5 week was on the horizon, which would be a great start. But the gambling gods were not going to let me have that moment. [...]
You've seen a bunch of interviews posted here with writers from our site. Well, John from Albany, who runs the Mets News & Links site, conducted one with me recently. Here's a snippet: If you could have dinner with 4 current or ex-Met managers, players or executives, who would they be? Love this question! It’s [...]

No one who writes for the site makes my job easier than John Fox. I am especially grateful for his reliably early submissions, to say nothing of his article topics, which always seem carefully chosen. Two years ago, when I was contemplating the future direction of Mets360, one plan was to have just John as [...]
Please use this thread all week to discuss any Mets-specific topic you wish. Please use this space instead of going off topic on the most-recent thread.
Next up in our interview series is Joe Vasile. Many of you know Joe from the analytically-driven stories he’s written here over the years but what you may not know is that Joe is a broadcaster in the minor leagues with the goal to make it to the majors. We’re all rooting for him to [...]
One of the biggest issues with the New York Mets in many seasons in recent history was their willingness to over-trade offense for defense. This was always evident in the outfield and definitely a known issue with third base, in the years between Felix Mantilla and Robin Ventura. There is no need to have everyone [...]
The survivor pool was over after just one week. So, here's another offering besides our standard articles.
Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom, and Chris Bassitt all had at least one thing in common this season: they each blew some of the Mets’ biggest games in at least half a decade. Scherzer and Bassitt even did it twice in a row. It was about as disastrous an outcome as could be expected for a [...]
Here’s the final look back at the preseason projections. Forecasts were done for the five starting pitchers and the closer. The predictions were good for the infielders and not so great for the outfielders. Which direction will the pitcher forecasts tip the scales? Because of the lockout, only rate stats were used. The categories for [...]
One of the items asked for by readers from our September customer survey was to have things in addition to our regular articles. One of the suggestions was to have interviews with non-team personnel. Below is an email correspondence with Matt Netter. Matt gave his last reply a little while ago, which explains why his [...]
