Here is some background about me in regards to Daniel Murphy. I fully admit I am a “mark,” for him. In August of 2008, I went on mets.com and bought a blue Mets t-shirt with Mr. Met on the front and Murphy’s name and number on the back. It’s a pretty awesome shirt to be honest, and the fact I had it before almost anybody else gives me a slight sense of pride when I [...]
As we come to the end of another Mets season, we hope you’ll take some time to help us select our first ever MMO Award winners for the 2009 season. The Lenny Dykstra Award – This award should go to the Mets player that you feel performed at their highest level possible, no matter what the score, standings or situation was. They leave it all on the field. Your nominees are, Jeff Francoeur Daniel Murphy [...]
I joined this great team during the early summer months, you know, when we foolishly expected the Mets to make some great September run because “everybody would be back.” I’ve had a great time, and I really cannot wait until next season! To wrap up the year, I decided to create a yearly feature for this website. It’s the MMO Awards. The winners will be voted solely by you, our readers. To give you some background [...]
A few weeks back I wrote a column and I briefly mentioned the fact that I believe Nick Johnson would be a great fit for the Mets in 2010. I’m going to take that further today. Assume for a second that everybody’s fantasy of acquiring Prince Fielder or Adrian Gonzalez is not going to happen. Even if it does happen, the price tag for both of them will be astronomical. To me that leaves the [...]
Last night I was watching the Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles add another chapter into the book of their great rivalry. Prior to the game, there was a video montage of the Miami Hurricanes of old. You know, the teams everybody just loved to hate. They were mean, they were cocky, but they were real, real good. I wish I could remember who said it, but the quote was, “If you don’t like my [...]
I am pretty negative when it comes to Jerry Manuel and his managing of the New York Mets. On one side, I think he is a great guy. He treats the media well, and for the most part he has handled this disaster of a season very well. I often find myself shaking my head at the moves he made at the end of last season, and earlier this year (you know, when we actually [...]
Last night Carlos Beltran returned from a “bone bruise,” on his knee in a rehab start for the Brooklyn Cyclones. I keep hearing, and reading people asking why he is even trying right now. My opinion, he is auditioning to prove he is healthy enough to garner attention on the trading market this winter in Indianapolis (site of the Winter Meetings). Here’s the thing, at 32 years old, Beltran is still in my opinion the [...]
This morning, Buster Olney has an article for ESPN Insiders that details seven logical candidates to be the next General Manager of our NY Mets. Wait, I thought Wilpon said Minaya was staying? First, if you haven’t learned to not trust what this organization says, I think you’ve been watching and listening to the wrong people. Second, he never really said Minaya would be the General Manager. Here are the options according to Olney; #1 [...]
A true Mets fan is also a baseball fan. I grew up in New York, but went to College in the New England area, and I now reside in Connecticut. Where, I had to change cable providers 3 times before I could get SNY. That’s for another time though. My biggest pet peeve is when people say they are done caring about the sport for the year because their team is out of it. To [...]
