Never before has it seemed that one team’s future rests so much on whether one player signs with them, or chooses to sign with another team. Perhaps one could argue that Albert Pujols’ free agency has more of an impact on the St. Louis Cardinals, but I do not think many people are expecting Pujols to leave town. If he does, their fans have 2 World Series championships to hold them over until better days [...]
I found this to be pretty interesting. This is an interview done by Brian Walton, and was done back in 2004 when John Mozeliak was the Asst. GM for the St. Louis Cardinals. It’s an interesting read, that’s all I’m saying. Especially when you consider this man went to sleep last night a World Series winning GM. Here are some excerpts, what are your thoughts? The strategy this year was obviously to go heavy on [...]
There are many people who believe that playing a full season of games and being successful is harder than winning say, a 5 game series in the LDS. I am one of those people. However, I don’t discount the playoffs. I just think they are designed for great theater and when 8 teams get in, realistically every team in the playoffs has a chance to be the World Series champion. Do we all think in 2006 [...]
There’s so much talk lately (probably because we’re bored), about what statistics we use when evaluating hitters or what stats we wish management to use to do the same. It’s mildly amusing to me to see how heated this conversation gets. It always seems to wind up in some discussion centered around Billy Beane, or David Wright. When arguing with a Mets fan, when things start to get stale…just mention one of those two, and [...]
I was 4 years old when the 1986 Mets won the World Series. My memories of that team are re-created by old school videos of myself with my siblings and cousins cheering “Lets Go Mets… YEAH!” at the dinner table for my sister’s 1st birthday party. The earliest Halloween memory I have is of my mother sewing myself and my 2 older brothers Mets uniforms for us. My oldest brother was Gary Carter, next oldest [...]
The World Series has not ended yet, and already we’re coming out with off-season wish lists. We want Reyes, we don’t want Reyes, pay CJ Wilson whatever he wants, let Wilson go to the Yankees. Get a closer, trade Wright, keep your draft picks, hire Omar, fire Sandy, hire Riggleman, move the walls in. As they say in Seinfeld, yada, yada, yada. Now I’m not saying I don’t find these conversations valuable. I do, I [...]
One of the biggest moves in the Mets off-season may be one that they have little to no control over. While some of us sit here and dream about the possibilities, we also tend to see things from a very different angle and at times the makeup of the Mets front office is one of the reasons. The Baltimore Orioles are a franchise in desperate need of a change. GM Andy MacPhail (whom some of [...]
As I slowly get myself back into the mix here at MMO, I’m starting to realize there is an absolutely ridiculous campaign going on for the Mets to pursue C.J. Wilson in free agency. I think what bothers me the most about where our fan base is right now is the love affair with doing things over and over again after they have proven to not work. What exactly has C.J. Wilson done in his [...]
Recently, there has been an awful lot of discussion between Mets fans about the dirty little C word. No, not that one. (Captain, my goodness what were you thinking?) Of course, the word is “clutch.” I’ve gone on record as saying I don’t really care about who is clutch and who is not. I think there could be a moment in the 9th inning where Kaz Matsui could have a big at bat, does that [...]
A few months back, I had the pleasure of walking into a meeting that made me feel at home. It was filled with Mets memorabilia and even a bright orange couch for visitors. What a feeling! To first meet somebody for business and know you could probably spend days talking Mets baseball with them. Through our conversation, a website was brought to my attention that many of you might find interesting. With news that not [...]
There’s really nothing worse than a meaningless September. That’s probably how most fans of other teams feel, but for me a meaningless September in New York right now is about the worst thing you can possibly have. K-Rod & Beltran I don’t want to hear excuses about K-Rod or Beltran being traded. I am sorry they had to go, it would have been great if they were a part of a championship team, but the [...]
