The Colorado Rockies were in town this week for a four game series, winning all four including both ends of a double header. Here we have the 3 Up and 3 Down from the series. Three Up 1. Troy Tulowitzki: It pains me to put an opposing player in this slot, but Tulowitzki had just an amazing series against the Mets. He homered in all four of the games, made a rally killing defensive play [...]
The Mets hosted the Washington Nationals for Opening Weekend at Citi Field. I’m not sure what the deal was with the 4:10 start on Friday afternoon, but at least the Mets did a classy thing by having Ralph Kiner toss out the first pitch. The Nationals took the series 2-1 thanks mostly to a horrible, horrible bullpen. That said here are my 3 Up and 3 down from this series. Three Up 1. Chris Young – [...]
Prior to returning home for the 50th Opening Day in team history, our guys were down in Philadelphia for the first head to competition of the season against Eastern Division rivals, the Phillies. The Phillies won two of the three games, and the Mets return to Citifield 3-3 (did anyone really expect anything better). He are my 3 Ups and 3 Downs from this series. Three Up 1. Chris Young: Young pitched the series opener [...]

Terry Collins – We knew Terry Collins would be high energy, but Terry has managed these three games to win them. Let’s write off Friday night’s [...]
Today’s 3 Up, 3 Down is a dedication to the Joys and Aggravations of being a fan of the New York Mets. They are in no particular order. Three Up 1. Things Uniquely New York Mets, or what I call Metcentricities: The best team song ever, I get goosebumps whenever I hear “Meet the Mets”. The best mascot ever in Mr. Met. Who doesn’t get excited when they see Mr. Met at a game? Citi Field [...]
Before we get to another Spring Training edition of “3 Up and 3 Down”, I’d like to thank Joe D. for welcoming me back to the MMO family. It’s great to back. Three Up 1. Ike & Josh - One year ago, neither Ike Davis or Josh Thole were projected to be part of the team. This year they are going to be integral parts of the team. Ike Davis joined the Mets early last season, and [...]
