After passing his physical, the Mets officially announced the signing of our new rightfielder Chris Young this afternoon. “Chris has had a distinguished career to this point and we think with regular playing time we think he can return to his all-star caliber performance,” GM Sandy Alderson said. “He’s a tremendous defensive outfielder, brings some power, the approach we’re looking for offensively and some speed on the bases.” Alderson said that Young could bat anywhere from 5-7 […]
If you look around the Mets twitterverse, here, or any other Mets related site you’ll find fans, writers, and commentators all speaking on the likelihood or unlikelihood that the Mets will sign Jose Abreu to play 1B for the Mets. I’m not sure about you, but I am growing tired of anybody who has never seen Abreu play more than a handful of games (if that), acting like he’s a no brainer for the Mets […]
As one of Terry Collins’ most ardent supporters, I’m having a slight case of the “hindsight blues” today. Let me first start by saying, I think Terry Collins is a good manager for this team. You’ve heard it said before, and you’ll likely hear it again – “Baseball Managers don’t matter all that much.” It’s a statement spoken by fans who subscribe to a more sabermetric philosophy than an old school way of thinking. To […]
The upcoming off-season is when many Mets fans expect to see action with regard to shaping this roster for a competitive season. We’ve been through the trades that needed to be made, we’ve been through the free agents that couldn’t be signed, and we’ve been through the contracts that had to come off the books. The farm looks healthy-ish, and now it’s time to prove that the Mets (like many other teams) can maintain a […]
Last night was just the opening act, tonight the playoffs officially begin! This year’s playoffs (minus not having the Mets) to me look to be very enjoyable on paper. I don’t think there is a team that I legitimately can say I have a strong feeling “should” win it all. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Pirates welcome the Cincinnati Reds to beautiful PNC Park. This is a tough game for me to predict because I do not […]
Being a baseball fan brings out the best, and sometimes the worst in people of all walks of life. Being a fan of a bad baseball team often brings magnifies those characteristics. I’m not talking about terrible things like racism, sexism, or God forbid acts of violence like we saw recently with the Giants and Dodgers. Those thoughts, whether they are an unfounded accusation or an actual action are wrong no matter the situation. They […]
In 2005, the Mets fan was generally an optimistic one. Sure, we as fans were still getting over the bitter Subway Series defeat. Yet, the idea that somebody fresh and new was coming in to take over the Mets and build a team around our two young potential stars in Jose Reyes and David Wright allowed any Mets fan I know to be patient, but more importantly optimistic. The ideas of a “plan”, or value […]
The clock is ticking on the 2013 season, and we’ve learned so much about the future of this franchise. The problem is, in some aspects we’ve learned the Mets have more work to do than we had hoped. Whether Ike Davis hits 10 HR in the next 10 days or not, Davis needs to go. He was given a second chance to prove that 2012 was a fluke, and instead he proved it was a […]
Over the weekend when the news broke that Mike Baxter would get the call up before Wilmer Flores, the Mets fan base took to social media and other outlets to express their frustration. When it happened, I had a twitter discussion with MMO’s own Robert Patterson which I explained I thought calling up Flores for the weekend was not necessary but that they would call him up after the weekend when they knew the extent […]
