What If Daniel Murphy Never Got Injured?

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 […]

Pelfrey Continues To Be Awful, Mets Lose 9-5

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 […]

Is Collins Making The Same Mistakes He Did In The Past?

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 […]

MMO Staffers Weigh In On Braun Issue

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.

Morning Grind: Piazza Should Have His Number Retired Regardless Of HOF Results

An article by posted on February 23, 2012 0 Comments

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 […]

Except for our Optimistic Mets Fan, there aren’t a […]

Here’s To You Kid!

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 […]

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 […]
