Morning Grind: Why Is Hu Here Instead Of Luis Hernandez?

An article by posted on May 10, 2011 0 Comments

Hello MMO! Here’s your Morning Grind: Why Is Chin-Lung Hu Here? Mets backup middle infielder Chin-Lung Hu has just been absolutely dreadful to start this season. I see no reason why the 27-year old Taiwanese native is on the major league staff except to crack the cheap “Hu’s on first?” joke on the rare occasion […]

O’Connor will wear #50 and will be available for […]

Book Review: Moneyball – An Incredible, Revolutionary Masterpiece

Moneyball tells the fascinating tale of Billy Beane’s ingenious use of statistical analysis in order to assemble a winning ballclub without the luxury of a large payroll. Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 […]

Prince Harry At Mets Game In 2010 (Photo)

In honor of the Royal Wedding and all the buzz around the Royal Family, I thought it would be an appropriate time to share my personal shot I took of Prince Harry throwing out the first pitch on June 26th, 2010 at the Mets vs. Twins game that I attended. If I remember correctly, Harry threw […]

Should The Mets Trade Santana?

An article by posted on April 27, 2011 0 Comments

It appears like such a shocking question to ask, but should the Mets deal their ace Johan Santana?  The Mets have a great deal of money invested in the ailing ace who has failed to complete 30 starts since the 2008 season, his first year with the Mets. With Santana’s health in question and no clear return date, would […]

Gee Should Remain In The Rotation, Not Capuano

An article by posted on April 25, 2011 0 Comments

With Chris Young coming off the DL, the Mets have decided to opt D.J. Carrasco down to Triple-A and to place Dillon Gee in the bullpen. This move is not only endangering the further development of Gee as a pitcher, but also takes a great pitcher out of the rotation. What does not makes sense is why take Gee […]

35th Anniversary Of Rick Monday’s Flag Save

Thirty-five years ago to the day, two protesters ran onto the field just before the bottom of the fourth inning on a Sunday matinée at Dodger’s Stadium, baring lighter fluid, matches, and the American flag with the intent to burn it in front of the 25,167 fans in attendance. As the two poured lighter fluid […]

These Are The Times Where We Miss Santana

An article by posted on April 22, 2011 0 Comments

With the Mets now officially the worst team in baseball, and no clear way to stop the bleeding, these are the times we miss ace Johan Santana. Without Santana, the Mets have no legitimate stopper in the rotation, something they are in dire need of. But given that we shouldn’t realistically expect Santana to return until July, what […]

Has Angel Pagan Lost His Wings?

An article by posted on April 21, 2011 0 Comments

Angel Pagan has been off to a dreadful start, and there is no debating that. Pagan has not only batted under .170 so far, but he has also lacked the clutch hitting that the Mets relied on so heavily last season. With such a slow start in 2011, it begs the question we are reluctant to ask: Was 2010 just a fluke […]

Hairston Starting In Left, Not Harris

An article by posted on April 19, 2011 0 Comments

In an error on the Mets emailing list, it stated that Willie Harris would have the start for the series opener versus LHP Wandy Rodriguez. This is not the case, Scott Hairston will get the start versus the Dominican hurler. At first this did not make sense because Hairston is an absolute monster versus Rodriguez. Hairston in […]
