MMO Fan Shot: Revisiting the Scott Kazmir Trade

I don’t remember much about the summer of 2004. I vaguely remember turning 21 that June, taking an ill-advised trip to Atlantic City, and realizing that all casinos are not created equal. (Apparently you have to win twice at the Taj Majal, once at the table, and once again in the parking garage, successfully making […]

Why Do We Let the Marlins Get to Us?

Jessica gets her wish! She submitted this post before today’s game but it didn’t go up on time. But it all worked out. – Joe D. It seems like a familiar enough scenario: the Mets play the Marlins for the final series of the year. In a must-win series, the Mets lose two out of […]

I’m Sad This Season is Over

The Mets begin their final series of the season last night against Miami. The good news is that it is mathematically impossible for the Mets to finish in the cellar. The bad news is that they are going to finish the season down in the wins column. I get asked why I still care about […]

How are the Mets NOT in Last Place?

As of September 20, the Mets sit in 4th place by one game and six perentage points. Our elimination number is two and Barney Stinson is closer to smoking his next cigarette. The only thing as equally Amazin’ as our 4-23 home record post-All Star break, including 15 straight home games where we scored three […]

Where Does David Wright Stand?

After Monday’s 3-1 loss to the Phillies, I got on the phone with my dad and we naturally discussed the game. We discussed everything from who was responsible for the only run (Daniel Murphy) to Dickey’s performance. Despite letting off the two solo home runs, both my dad and I felt that Dickey pitched well […]

Don’t Let September Get You Down

Don’t Let September Get You Down

Yeah, it’s September. The elimination number on the Mets is six. On October 3, Mets baseball will become dormant for the winter as the Wilpon family and Sandy Alderson try to re-sign David Wright and R.A. Dickey to long-term contracts. Or at least that’s what I hope they’ll do. No, the Mets won’t be a […]

MMO Fan Shot: What Did You Do To Honor The First Responders Who Died On 9/11?

I got to work about a half hour early this morning like I always do so I can have some coffee and catch up on my Mets. Like I usually do, I went to my favorites bar on Chrome and clicked on MMO. I was treated to a few touching posts about September 11th. None […]

MMO Fan Shot: Patience is a Virtue? Not In Flushing It’s Not…

We have all heard the phrase good things come to those that wait, but the phrase really only works if you seem to have a plan for the future that you intend to wait for. Patience works if you have a plan. But I see no plan at work with this organization. Many have tried […]

MMO Fan Shot: We’re In The Same Deplorable State As In 1979

After a disappointing 1973 World Series loss to the Oakland A’s, despite holding a three games to two lead with two games to play, the 70′s New York Mets quickly fell from grace in the National League East. Back then the East was filled with good strong clubs like the Phillies Pirates, Cardinals, and the […]

MMO Fan Shot: Two Solutions to the Mets Catching Problems

MMO Fan Shot: Two Solutions to the Mets Catching Problems

One of the major weaknesses of the New York Mets is the catching position.  Starter Josh Thole has produced nothing offensively and is poor defensively.  Backups Mike Nickeas and Rob Johnson struggle just to hit over the Mendoza line. Newly acquired catcher Kelly Shoppach isn’t awful, but we would be kidding ourselves to think that […]
