In Spring Training of 2010, the Mets were coming off of a season of a horrific pileup of injuries. Virtually every starting position player suffered some sort of injury except for the 24-year old Daniel Murphy who put together a breakout year. The age of Carlos Delgado around the bag at first had come to a close and a new era was beginning. It appeared after many positional changes for Murphy, that he had found […]
Mike Pelfrey continued his mighty struggles this spring as he failed to make it out of the third inning today. Summary: Today’s game was just about the opposite of that of yesterday’s. Instead of strong starters, both Pelfrey and Livan Hernandez got hit hard. Instead of all of the games runs being the fault of the bullpen, Only two runs were scored on either side after the third inning. Finally most apparent, instead of a […]
The luck of the Irish was apparently not on the side of the Amazin’s today as the bullpen failed to capitalize on a dominant performance by Jon Niese. Summary: Jon Niese and the Mets took the field today donning green jerseys in honor of St. Patty’s Day. Niese and the Braves’ Kris Medlen were locked in a pitcher duel, both having scoreless outings. Niese would go 5 1/3 shutout frames, scattering six hits while walking none and […]
In what has become a very public showing, –or lack there of– Terry Collins has expressed his discontent with Ruben Tejada’s not reporting to camp early on multiple occasions. Wasn’t this the same issue in LA and Houston? Did his players not petition against him in Anaheim for reasons just like this? It seems to me like this whole incident was a regression for Collins back to an old habit. In his former jobs with […]
As all have you have seen in virtually every major media news outlet, Ryan Braun won his appeal of his positive PEDs test, lifting the 50-game suspension that was looming over him all winter, the first time any player has ever done so. Being such major news, we thought we’d have a few MMO staff members give their two cents on what they think of Braun’s beating the system and the fallout from this entire […]
Last week we learned from Dave Lennon of Newsday that the Mets are waiting for Mike Piazza to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame for them to retire number 31. For me, that takes away from the honor of retiring someone’s number. It should not be about if someone else sees him as a great player, it should be about how Piazza impacted the New York Mets from 1998-2005. If they look at […]
THE OPTI-METS: Continuing with the two schools of thought, we move to the lighter side of things; the opti-mets. This crowd must be gellin’ with Dr. Scholl’s insoles or something, because to remain completely optimistic about the 2012 Mets after the past five year is saying something. Except for our Optimistic Mets Fan, there aren’t a whole lot of these guys left around. But for those of them who remain, this is how an opti-mets views […]
All I know about Gary Carter are the stories that I’ve read or that others have told me, plus what I’ve learned from watching various films, interviews and documentaries. From what I have always heard and read about Doc, Straw, Keith and many of others on that 1986 team, they were heavy duty partiers and what not. But you never heard that about Carter. He was simply that classic all-American player that any child with a […]
I had the pleasure of chatting with minor league hurler Eric Niesen. Niesen began his professional career by being selected in the 3rd round of the 2007 MLB amateur draft by the Mets out of Wake Forest Academy. The now 25-year old Michigan native was first assigned to the Brooklyn Cyclones and was making his way through the ranks, making the FSL All-Star Team in 2009, until about mid-2010 when he “hit-the-wall” if you will. […]
