Justin Turner, One Of the League’s Best RBI Guys?

An article by posted on July 21, 2011 0 Comments

That’s right, Le Petit Orange is the 6th-best RBI guy in the league, he of the 36 total RBIs. Jimmy: “But wait, I just checked (insert stats source) and it says he’s got 36 RBI and that’s tied for 51st!” Xtreem: “That’s right, Little Jimmy, but RBI TOTAL is not a good measure of talent […]

First Half Awards – MMO Staff Weighs In

While the All-Star Break doesn’t occur after exactly 81 games, it’s routinely thought of as the halfway point. The first half is over and the second half is about to begin. So just as we were polled at the start of the season, the staff here at MMO was asked to give out their first […]

I Want Omar Minaya Back Redux

Back in March, I wrote this piece stating that with Minaya’s ability to scout and Sandy Alderson’s ability to run a franchise, the Mets would be in great shape moving forward if the two could work in tandem in some regard. We’re starting to see a little bit of that tandem come to fruition this […]

My American League All-Stars

My American League All-Stars

The American League was a little easier than the NL, I think. Such depth in the NL outfield and at first base and no depth at all at third base made it difficult to settle. But trying to adhere to that stupid rule about representing each team made it a challenge. Without further ado… C - Alex Avila, […]

My National League All-Stars

I think it’s pretty absurd that All-Star ballots are released three or four weeks into the season. Even if the voting ended as recently as a month ago, Alexi Ogando would be the starting pitcher for the American League, and Mets fans know firsthand the struggles he’s been through since then. I don’t start paying […]

The Mets Really Miss David Wright

The Mets Really Miss David Wright

David Wright’s last game was May 15th, exactly one week ago, and since then, the Mets are 3-2. Pretty good considering the team has also been missing Ike Davis for longer. Despite a good showing and a winning record, the Mets offense is struggling mightily and we all have the pitching to thank for keeping […]

Mets Are Who We Thought They Were

I remember Denny Green’s blowup almost word for word because it’s my second favorite unintentionally hilarious sports rant I’ve ever seen. I would love to have used my all-time favorite, I’m a man, I’m 40! but it was apropos of nothing regarding this post. After defeating the Astros this afternoon, the Mets have now completed […]

The Future Of Michael Alan Pelfrey

What are the odds that 2011 is the last season Mike Pelfrey plays for the New York Mets? What are the odds that Pelfrey is an ex-Met by August 1st? Maybe a lot higher than you think. It might be time to seriously consider trading Mike Pelfrey. Pelfrey is under team control for two more […]

Where’s Omar Minaya? I Want Him Back.

In November, Andy Martino wrote this article for the Daily News, saying that Omar had received a job offer from Arizona and will discuss a potential opening with Alderson. About six weeks ago, Ian Begley wrote this, quoting Fred Wilpon as saying he personally wishes Minaya return to the organization in an advisory or scouting role, […]

Rick Peterson: We Had No Depth, What Did You Expect?

An article by posted on March 8, 2011 0 Comments

With deference to our own Mr. North Jersey, who beat me to the punch, former Mets pitching coach Rick Peterson talked to Ed Randall this past weekend on Randall’s WFAN program. Amongst other topics, Peterson addressed September of 2007 specifically and had this to say: “I really have a strong passion for New York, for the New […]
