MMO Fair or Foul: Don’t Believe Everything You Read

Rich Couthino of CBS New York wrote today’s best thing I’ve read and as usual is a voice of reason. We live in an age of instant messaging, Twitter, Facebook, and blogs. We are inundated with rumors about players, trades, free agency signings and personnel movement. I understand all that because the sports media is a competitive playground. […]

Bring Back Lastings Milledge?

It is perhaps a sad commentary on the current state of the Mets and their almost non-existent production from the outfield, but I want to assure you that this post is NOT written tongue-in-cheek. I’m sure most Mets fans remember when Milledge was the highly-touted first-round Mets’ draft pick who made a big splash in […]

Josh Edgin: Over And Out…

Before last night’s game, Terry Collins told reporters that reliever Josh Edgin would make one more relief appearance this season before being shutdown for the season. It didn’t go as planned… With the Mets already being pounded 11-1 by the Phillies, Edgin came on for the final appearance of the season and inherrited a very […]

Signing Wright To An Extension: How Long Is Too Long?

Last week, in a poll on MetsBlog.com, 67 percent of voters said the Mets should try to sign Wright to a six- or seven-year contract extension this winter; while 12 percent said the team should blow him away with an eight-or nine-year deal. Wow, I must be losing it… It just seems that lately my opinion is always […]

Current Mets State Illustrates Why They Didn’t Bring Back Reyes

The Miami Marlins are in for the weekend, and with them comes Jose Reyes. Now that the season is dwindling down to a precious few games, I ask: Would the Mets season been significantly different had they re-signed Reyes? I don’t see how that is possible after last night. With the way the Mets are […]

Mets Shuffle The Deck To Give Dickey Two More Home Starts

Trying to get the most out of R.A. Dickey, both on the field and at the gate, the Mets moved him from Sunday’s start to Saturday. The switch allows him to start the home finale next Thursday against the Pittsburgh Pirates instead of in Atlanta the next night against the Braves. It might not be […]

Mets Lay Down And Die, Take Pounding From Phillies 16-1

Tonight at Citi Field, the Mets (66-83) lost to the Phillies (76-74) by the score of 16-1 and were officially eliminated from post-season contention. Just a pathetic game in every dimension for the Mets. Starting pitcher Jeremy Hefner didn’t even record an out before allowing seven earned runs, and the bullpen was awful! The only offense was a […]
