Take Your Pick: Stanton, Trout, or Harper?

In Major League Baseball, the debate of which young phenom will have the better career is all the rage. These phenoms, of course, are Mike Trout of the Angels and Bryce Harper of the Nationals. Trout, who just turned 21, is the unanimous AL Rookie of the Year and perhaps MVP. He has almost single […]

Thoughts On Shutting Down Matt Harvey

Enjoy it while you can. The Mets plan to shut down Matt Harvey after 175 innings max, which is about three more starts. While he’s been one of the bright spots to a disappointing season, I have no problem with the decision as there’s nothing to be gained by running him into the ground. If […]

Old Time Mets: Dave Kingman

Dave Kingman was one of the most fascinating players in Mets’ history.

MMO Interview: Binghamton Mets Backstop Francisco Pena

Coming from a baseball family, the theory was always that Francisco Pena would shoot through the Mets system and be their starting catcher by 2012. Although his progress has been slower than what that timetable would have required, there is no question that Pena is moving closer to where he needs to be. Now in […]

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow?

Halfway through this season, there was a positive record that elated the faithful and did much to downplay that the 2012 Mets do not hit with power, do not have much speed, cannot hit lefty pitching, do not field particularly well and have just about the worst bullpen in the majors.

Mets 2012 Season Will Be A Near Total Loss

As the Brady Bunch theme song goes – everyone sing along […]
