Recently, Brian Joura at mets360.com posted an interesting piece on whether Carlos Beltran would wear a Mets hat when elected to the Hall of Fame. The thing that struck me the most about the title was the word “when”. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Carlos Beltran and was hoping the Mets would re-sign him to an incentive-laden short-term contract, but at the same time, I am a realist. I knew the Mets would […]
If you’re a true Mets fan, then you know how much the Marlins have been a thorn in the team’s side since 2007. First, Tom Glavine was able to retire only one more batter than I did in the 2007 regular season finale, completing the Mets’ collapse. One year later, the Marlins wouldn’t get off the field after they once again eliminated the Mets (and Shea Stadium) in Game No. 162. Three years after that, […]
I’m very happy that John Franco has become the latest member of the Mets’ Hall of Fame. He is more than deserving of the honor, having pitched 14 seasons with the Mets and becoming the franchise’s all-time saves leader. However, I am surprised by the fact that Franco was inducted this year, when there is another reliever who’s been waiting longer and is equally, if not more deserving of enshrinement into the team’s hallowed Hall. […]
As the dawn of the new millenium arrived, while people were talking about whether Y2K was going to give them the blues, the Mets were one of the best teams in the National League. They were in the middle of their only back-to-back playoff appearances in franchise history and things appeared to be on the up-and-up. Only two years later, the Mets were at the bottom of the NL East standings, becoming laughingstocks of the […]
In case you fell asleep early last night and haven’t been reading any of the other countless posts on the topic here at MMO, I have some sad news to report. A little over two hours before midnight, it was revealed that Jose Reyes decided to accept the Marlins’ latest contract offer of six years and $106 million to leave the only team he’d ever known. I’ll let that sink in before I continue… …I […]
Since 2004, David Wright has been a fan favorite. His name can be found all over the Mets’ all-time offensive leaderboard and he has accomplished this all before his 29th birthday. Because of this, some Mets fans would find it impossible to see the team without David Wright and would consider it sacrilege to trade him. However, I’ve been doing some research on the Mets’ career leaderboard and made some comparisons to another team’s leaderboard. […]
Ever since Shea Stadium closed its doors for the final time in 2008, David Wright has not been the same player. At least that’s what I hear from many Mets fans. Although I do think the move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field has hurt Wright’s power stroke, I don’t think the ballpark is to blame for his overall decline at the plate from All-Star hitter to strikeout-prone former slugger. As a matter of fact, […]
So do you think Jesse Orosco looks happy in the photograph to the left? Just wait until he finds out that we located his glove! Then he’ll experience joy like he’s never felt before! You know the glove we’re talking about. It’s the one Orosco threw up in the air triumphantly after he struck out Marty Barrett of the Red Sox to end the 1986 World Series. Well, where exactly did that glove go after […]
Despite the “Hey, Kids!” in the title, I’m going to start this post by asking a question to our older readers. Tell me, my friends. Do you remember when you were in school and you rushed home every October to watch a World Series game at home? How about the times when your teacher would occasionally bring a TV or radio into the classroom so that you could watch or listen to the game in […]
