Grandy and Trout and BABIP, Oh My!

Grandy and Trout and BABIP, Oh My!

Until my drive home from AT&T Park last night, I never thought the day would come that my feelings after watching a 42-year old, 280+ pound man pitch a quality start would be, “He didn’t really pitch well tonight. We never had a chance.” Unfortunately, this is the state of the John-Mayberry-hitting-in-the-six-hole Mets. Without looking […]

It’s Time to Start Capitalizing

You know that feeling you get when you do something so amazing–like make an insane basketball trick shot or miraculously catch a falling box of cereal just before it crashes to the ground–you even surprise yourself, but you look around and no one witnessed you do it, like it’s just been wasted? I can only […]

Featured Post: The Mets Should Go Small

The Mets’ run-scoring problems have been well-documented. The team has posted just six runs amidst the current five game skid. And, what’s worse, there does not appear to be any immediate help ready down in the minor leagues. Many, myself included, have proposed potential candidates Sandy Alderson could pursue. The likes of Todd Frazier, Carlos […]

Now that the 2015 First-year player draft has concluded, I felt compelled to update our MMO Top Mets Prospect Rankings that our minor league team composed at the very beginning of the season. Before engaging in this discussion, I would first like to credit fellow MMO prospect writer, Michael Mayer, who helped assemble this list. […]

Who Is Newest Met Desmond Lindsay?

The New York Mets made their first selection of the MLB Draft late last night, selecting OF Desmond Lindsay in the back-half of the second round. Lindsay was the first player taken outside the MLB Top 200, so he may not be as well-known as other prospects on the board at No. 53. I wanted […]

MLB Draft: Four Players Mets Could Select Tonight

The Mets forfeited what would have been the 15th overall pick in the MLB Draft by signing Qualified free agent Michael Cuddyer to a two year, $21M deal. That’s okay with me. We’re currently just a half game out of first and Cuddyer has stabilized the lineup and clubhouse in David Wright’s absence. Anyway, even […]

It’s Tulo Time For The Mets

Not at all lost amidst the Mets strong start to the 2015 season is the inconsistent play from Wilmer Flores. Wilmer has been good with the bat, but his nine errors in the field are second only to the enigmatic Ian Desmond. As the Mets inch closer and closer to legitimate title contention, it is […]

How to Fix the Mets Offense

The Mets can’t score runs. Despite boasting the lowest ERA in baseball over the past two weeks, wins have been hard to come by due to the league’s second worst offense during that time. With Troy Tulowitzki rumors swirling, fans are calling on management to find some offense before a 13-3 start and repeated awesome […]

Wilfredo Tovar: The Mets Answer at Shortstop?

Coming into this season, there was much doubt surrounding whether a Wilmer Flores and Daniel Murphy shortstop and second base combination could holdup over a full season. And while the Mets eleven game winning streak gave the clumsy duo a bit more leeway, two big losses against the Marlins earlier this week exacerbated the Mets […]

Happy Birthday Gary Cohen

It’s Outta Here!!!! Gary Cohen turns 55 years old today. There’s no one I would rather see calling every game’s live action on SNY. The trio of Cohen, Darling, and Hernandez makes for entertaining television, even when the Mets are having a losing season. Cohen has been calling the action in the Mets booth since […]
