When you say the words “Game 6″ to any Mets fan, immediately their thoughts turn to the 1986 World Series. You can’t blame those fans for thinking of that memorable game first. After all, the game in which Mookie Wilson hit a “little roller up along first” was voted by Mets fans as the most memorable moment in Mets history. But that wasn’t the only memorable Game 6 for the Mets that season. If not [...]
In making the final out of the Phillies’ season for the second straight year, Ryan Howard suffered an apparent Achilles injury, falling to the ground and writhing in pain as the Cardinals celebrated their unlikely division series victory. In a worst-case scenario (torn ACL), Howard would miss nine months or more while recovering from surgery to repair the tear. In other words, Howard’s 2012 season would be kaput. Although Ryan Howard batted only .253 for [...]
Come closer to the screen. I want to let you in on a little secret. Are you with me? Okay, here goes. Jose Reyes won the National League batting title this year. What was that? You knew that already? You want me to tell you something you don’t know? Fine, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. In fact, I have a number of things to tell you that you probably didn’t know. And once [...]
In honor of R.A. Dickey’s near no-hitter last night, I decided to dig into our archives and pull out this gem – pitched by Ed Leyro on March 13, 2010. Enjoy reading it! Every young boy with aspirations of being a major league pitcher dreams of tossing a no-hitter. The thrill of recording out #27 before giving up hit #1 is one of the biggest joys in sports. However, this thrill has never been felt [...]
In a 7-5 victory over the Atlanta Braves last weekend, Ruben Tejada filled in for Jose Reyes both at shortstop and in the leadoff spot. Tejada reached base three times (walk, double, single), stole a base and drove in four runs. His two-out, three-run double in the fourth inning broke a 1-1 tie and his two-out, RBI single in the eighth inning gave the Mets a 6-5 lead, a lead they never relinquished. Ruben Tejada was [...]
Earlier today, my colleague at MMO, Jason Pafundi, wrote an interesting piece on why the Mets should consider trading David Wright. Jason is not the first person on this site or on other sites to explore this topic. The trading of the Mets’ third baseman is a topic that can be argued for days on end, and people on both sides can present valid points to defend their respective arguments. But I’m not here to [...]
Quick! Which starting pitcher on the Mets has the lowest ERA? If you said R.A. Dickey, you’d be correct. Now if I asked you which Mets hurler of the starting five has the fewest wins, you probably wouldn’t think to say Dickey’s name again. But it’s true. With a 5-11 record, R.A. Dickey has the fewest wins of the five pitchers in the starting rotation, one less than Mike Pelfrey’s six. R.A. Dickey is this [...]
The trade of Carlos Beltran to the Giants became official earlier today, as the longtime Mets’ outfielder agreed to join the NL West leaders. In return, the Mets received top pitching prospect Zack Wheeler, who was the sixth overall pick in the 2009 Amateur Draft. Wheeler was ranked No. 55 among all prospects prior to the 2011 season, but moved up to No. 35 in the recently released mid-season rankings. Clearly, Wheeler is expected to [...]
In less than seven full seasons, Carlos Beltran has worked his way up the Mets career leaderboard in virtually every category. What makes Beltran’s achievements more impressive is that he’s 17th on the franchise’s all-time games played list, but ranks in the top ten in the majority of the cumulative stats. (doubles, home runs, RBI, runs scored, etc.) To celebrate Carlos Beltran Appreciation Week on MMO, I have gone through the record books (also known [...]
