Mets Unorthodox Path To The Playoffs To Be Led By Unproven Players

This week, Terry Collins and David Wright provided their annual sound bites that they believe the Mets, yes the group that has found its way to Port St. Lucie this spring, have it in them to make a run to the playoffs.  I know what your thinking.  How could a team that won only on […]

Four Prospects Who Give Us Reason To Hope

It’s not very often that mainstream media paints the Mets in a positive, or better yet, glowing light. So in those rare instances when they do, I like to point it out here on MMO. I give you Chris Cwik of CBS Sports. Chris is doing a team by team review of each minor league […]

I’m A Mets Fan, And I Will Always Believe

My grandfather raised me to be a Mets fan. Actually, “raised” is too tame of a word. My grandfather brainwashed me to become a Mets fan from the time I was a baby. If you go through old pictures of me, you are bound to find a few of toddler-Adam wearing a cute little Mets […]

Sifting Through Some Old Mets Relics And Memories Makes Me Believe in 2013

Tucked away in the mountains of Tehachapi, Calif. rests a modest cottage. Living in that cottage are John and Jill Nelson. These are my parents. In any given room, you can find the typical conventions of any old west-style household. There are paintings of horses on every wall, candle holders made from welded horseshoes on […]

What Do The Stats Tell Us About A Wright and Jeter Comparison?

Updated by Joe D. You can deny it all you want, jump up and down, throw a tantrum, or just ignore the facts – the choice is yours. But when you look at the evidence, there is no denying that David Wright has practically mirrored Derek Jeter in terms of overall production and value to […]

Wild Card? Why Not the Division!

So, just like every recent spring, the Mets are not picked to do anything in 2013. In most cases, they are not even mentioned as being a team in the National League East, which to me is quite insulting. The so-called “experts” don’t pick the Mets to finish above .500 yet alone being mentioned for […]

The thought coming into this year is that the Mets will use this season to play out the final year of large contracts, develop young prospects, and prime the team for playoff contention […]
