Hi there! I'm Stephanie, a second-semester journalism and communications student. I have been cheering for the Mets ever since I could talk, and I take pride in being the resident Mets freak among my peers and in my family. From pennant races to seasons in the cellar, I'm cheering for (and also swearing at) the Metsies no matter what. If you enjoy a good stream-of-consciousness feed of tweets on your timeline, you can follow me at @whutyearisit.

MMO Players of the Week: Deja-Vu All Over Again

What do I love more than the Mets? The Mets when they win. And boy, did they win this week. After failing to take advantage of the weak schedule very early on, they got right back on track with two series wins in Cleveland and Philadelphia, and a sweep in Atlanta to close out the […]

MMO Players of the Week: Some Old, Some New, Some Bold

“You win some, you lose some.” That has been the case for the 2016 Mets so far, but somehow they add much more stress than necessary. This week was another up-and-down string of games, with a bad series loss to a mediocre team to a good series win against an above-average team. It opened with […]

MMO Players of the Week: A Rookie Sensation, A Norse God, and Bartolo Colon

Ah, Mets baseball is finally upon us again. Though we had the shortest span of time between the end of the postseason and the beginning of the regular season (excluding the Royals, of course), the offseason still felt like it spanned 100 years. But now the Mets are back, and are… still the same offensively […]

A Personal Reflection on the Mets’ 2015 Season

It wasn’t until the second week of the 2015 season that the New York Mets made their home debut. The team was 3-3, and 2014 Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom was looking to solidify his name and prove to the baseball world that his rookie season was no fluke. 43,947 people were in attendance, […]

10 Signs You Root for the New York Mets

Meaningful September baseball? A real lineup? A starting rotation that dominates, and a reliable bullpen? Are we sure these are the same Mets that looked all but dead in June? The short answer is no, they aren’t; they’re a rejuvenated, electric, never-say-die bunch that feed off the crowd’s energy while simultaneously creating their own (and […]

MMO Players of the Week: The Good, the Great, and the Amazin’

It’s been one of those classic up and down weeks for the Metsies: losing a series on the road, sweeping a four game series, then getting swept at home. It’s clear to most that the Mets are the new favorites to win the division, but there is some major work to be done before they […]

The Elusive Silver Lining To Recent Mets Tumble

On Wednesday, I took to twitter and ranted out some brief frustrations following another brutal loss. In the Mets world of nosediving back into irrelevance, the Twitter-verse was ablaze with angry fans whose fingers collectively pointed at a lethargic ownership and their unwillingness to change even a single thing about this team. It got me […]

MMO Game Recap: Pirates 8, Mets 2

The Pirates (20-22) defeated the Mets (24-20) by a score of 8-2 on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh. This was undoubtedly Matt Harvey‘s worst start of his career. His final line: 4 IP, 6 H, 7 R, 7 ER, 2 BB, 4 K, including two wild pitches and two home runs. His ERA not […]

MMO Players of the Week: Great Debuts and Nothing New

Thank God the Brewers exist, or else I would have had a very bad week. I really don’t want to remember that Cubs series (seriously, is Wrigley Field cursed?), but it’s not like that much really happened offensively anyway. The pitching was phenomenal per usual, but the staff got the short end of the stick […]

MMO Players of the Week: An Unconventional Week for an Unconventional Team

Alright, this is better. After losing three series in a row, the Mets got over the minor hiccup by winning their next two. Although a series of two games shouldn’t really count as a series, I’ll take any sort of uplifting stat that I can. Now, this week was special in that not only were […]

MMO Players of the Week: Just Juanderful

Well, this kind of sucks. I was hoping that the David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud injuries wouldn’t burden this team too much, but lately it’s been clear that they can’t continue to fend for themselves much longer without two of their key pieces. Luckily, their return isn’t too far off in the distance: Wright resumed […]
