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: 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 […]

MMO Players of the Week: The Metsiest Eight Game Winning Streak in History

This week will officially go down as the weirdest in Mets history. 8 wins in a row. First undefeated opening homestand in franchise history. First place. Finally beating the damn Marlins for once. Scoring runs at Citi Field! Ejections, catcher’s interference, (failed) challenges up the wazoo, beanballs, comebacks and Bartolo Colon RBIs. The Mets usually […]

MMO Players of the Week: One Week Down, 26 To Go

I’m… not quite sure what to make of this yet. Six games have been played and the Mets stand even at 3-3. As the way it seems to be happening in the NL East, good teams are playing poorly and bad teams are playing unexpectedly average. The World Series shoe-in Nationals, who are 2-4, almost […]

Mets Spring Training: The Best of the Best!

If this spring hasn’t left you optimistic of what’s to come, then you might need to rethink a few things. There is something drastically different about this year’s Mets compared to last, and while it is clear that there are still some wrinkles to be smoothed out, there should be no argument that 2015 will […]

MMO Players of the Week: Duda, Colon and Everybody Else

The collapse wasn’t as sudden as it has been in the past, but it has finally arrived. Splitting the series with the Cubs was deplorable (especially in the manner the Mets did it in). Splitting the short series with the A’s was expected, but still not acceptable. Nearly getting swept by the Dodgers due to […]

MMO Players of the Week: It’s hard to choose when the Mets lose

The more that Mets players and coaches talk about a late playoff surge, the sillier and more delusional they sound. As things always seem to do for this team as the home stretch approaches, the Mets are beginning to fall apart at the seams. The offense is futile, the bullpen has been less than great, and […]

MMO Players of the Week: Murphy, Granderson, Colon, Oh My!

It’s been one of those wacky high and low weeks for the Mets yet again, showing that while the future looks bright, the present is rather bleak. It always seems as if each factor– offense, defense and pitching– seem to work independently. One day the offense will explode… but the defense will falter. The next day […]

MMO Players of the Week: Past, Present and Future All-Stars

If you told me that the Mets were going to take 3 of 4 from the then first place Braves and follow that up with a sweep of the Marlins at home, I would have called you crazy. Now, I’m starting to wonder if I’m crazy for thinking this team has a shot to make […]

Howie Rose: That’s As Good As It Gets!

In probably one of the most satisfying wins thus far, the Mets, backed by superb pitching and spectacular defense, narrowly shut out the Cardinals, 2-0. While the offense was not overwhelming, they were able to work Cardinals’ starter Tyler Lyons enough to knock in two runs and draw four walks. it was a much needed […]

MMO Players of the Week: Three Vets For Military Monday

Nothing is very new about the New York Mets… it has been another up and down week yet again. From pummeling the Diamondbacks to nearly getting swept by the Braves, the mystery of how the Mets go from performing like All-Stars on the road to playing like a little league team at home will likely remain unsolved […]
