MMO Mets Quotables: Phlying High Edition

I feel sorry for all those saps who claimed they wouldn’t go see or in some cases watch this team because of some stupid protest against the Mets owners. What about all the princes and paupers who predicted doom and gloom and falling attendance, and the seers and prophets who refused to give this Mets team a […]

System Failure: No End In Sight For Mets Bullpen Implosions

In eleven save opportunities, the Mets bullpen now has five blown saves. That’s not a typo – Five blown saves to go with six saves for the season so far. Every time that bullpen gate opens, no matter who emerges from it, the odds that they will protect any size lead is a little bit […]

Hey Kirk, There’s Always May…

I was holding out hope that he could do it, but Kirk Nieuwenhuis was beaten out for the NL Rookie of the Month award by Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Wade Miley, who went 3-0 with a 1.29 ERA in April. Nieuwenhuis led all major league rookies with a .325 batting average and 26 hits in April. He was second […]

The Most Popular M (mascot) In Sports

Congratulations to Flushing’s own Mr. Met on being named the most popular mascot in sports by Forbes Magazine. The “veteran, kid-friendly mascot”, they say, “has taken on a greater role during the Mets’ troubled years”. Ain’t that the truth? Mr. Met beat out the Phillie Phanatic who finished in second place in their rankings. In other […]

How ‘Bout Them Cowboys… Err Mets…

After tonight’s series win against the Rockies, the Mets filed out of the clubhouse one by one dressed in western garb as they head down to Houston, Texas for the start of a three game showdown with the Astros. Here are a few pictures courtesy of the Mets. Ruben Tejada & Dillon Gee look like […]

Regarding Ike’s Slump At The Plate

I was certain heading into last night’s contest that first baseman Ike Davis had bid farewell to his week and a half long slump to start the season. His 5-18 spurt with three homers and six rib-eye steaks gave me hope that the worst was behind him and that it would be smooth sailing from here on […]

Watch It Again: Bay’s Sensational Catch

Last night, Jason Bay had a coming out party of sorts as he not only belts his second home run of the season and is showing some signs he may be ripe for a rebound, but he also made a sensational leaping catch to rob Jack Wilson of a home run in the fifth inning. “It’s one […]

Mets Were Rocking Their Road Grays In Philly!

I loved how sharp the Mets looked in their 2012 road uniforms which are an homage to 1962.  They look even better dirty!

MMO Mets Quotables: Philadelphia Freedom Edition

“Lee is a great pitcher, and it’s not that I want them to be overly aggressive. Part of the whole plan is to be disciplined and get something good to hit. The other part of that is, it could be the second pitch of the at-bat. You don’t have to go up there and just […]

Lets Hold Off On All The Accolades For Pelfrey

I think some Met fans are making way too much of Mike Pelfrey’s pitching performance last night. In fact he was one bad call from an ump away from being a complete disaster. And even so, Pelfrey now owns the worst ERA on the team with a 4.76 mark. It’s familiar territory for Pelfrey who […]
