MMO Morning Grind: Lagares Returns… Now What?

Good morning, Mets fans! Juan Lagares is expected to return from the DL tonight. This is great news… I’m a huge fan of The Amazing Spider-Juan. But now, for the first time, the Mets have their 4 key outfielders— Lagares, Chris Young, Eric Young, and Curtis Granderson— all healthy at the same time. Because the […]

MMO Morning Grind: Can the Pitchers Start Hitting?

Good morning, Mets fans! Congratulations! If you are reading this, you have as many hits as the entire Mets pitching staff has in the 2014 MLB season. The Dodgers and Yankees will be entering a bidding war for your services shortly. Mets pitchers, as Jared Diamond pointed out in his column yesterday, are 0-for-41 on […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Meaning of Bobby Abreu

Good morning, Mets fans! Rough loss last night. I was there to watch my school sing the National Anthem, but left fairly early in the game with my friends (who aren’t Mets fans, so are they really my friends?), in part due to the freezing cold. But I was definitely there for the first inning, when […]

MMO Morning Grind: Where Have You Gone, Jeurys Familia?

Good morning, Mets fans! Nobody has seen or heard from Jeurys Familia in ages. They say that if you listen hard, on certain nights when the moon is full, you can still hear him howling at the night sky. But I’m not buying it. But seriously, where is Familia? After taking the loss on Opening […]

MMO Game Recap: Mets 4, Cardinals 1

The Mets (12-10) defeated the Cardinals (12-11) by a score of 4-1 on Thursday afternoon at Citi Field. Bartolo Colon took the ball for the Mets and was very solid, holding the Cardinals at bay while his belly rippled in the cool spring breeze. Bartolo held St Louis to 1 run on 4 hits in […]

MMO Morning Grind: Wild Wind Sparks Wild Win, Things Are Looking Up

Good Morning, Mets fans! Great win last night. The Mets, despite having had one of the league’s toughest schedules so far, are over 500 and are keeping pace with the fastest starters in the National League. But they haven’t been hitting lately. The Mets rank poorly in nearly every offensive category (except for strikeouts!). So […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Insurance Run Epidemic

Good morning, Mets fans! Let me set the scene. The Mets head into an important inning, late in the game. It might even be the 9th. It’s usually the 9th. They’re down by a run, or maybe 2. Whatever the deficit is, it’s usually larger by the time the inning ends. The Mets hand out […]

MMO Morning Grind: Too Much “Free Baseball” Could Prove Costly

Good morning, Mets Fans! Nice win yesterday, although it took a bit too long, dragging on for 14 innings before Curtis Granderson won it by doing what he does best: making an out. The absurd length of yesterday’s game is actually what brings me to the topic of this edition of the Morning Grind. The […]

MMO Morning Grind: More Replay!

Good Morning, Mets fans! What a frustrating loss last night. At least we fought hard. Anyway, the moment from the game that’s weighing most on my mind this morning is, of course, “The Shoe Play”. With 2 out and 2 on, Freddie Freeman hit a ball “straight into the ground” which seemingly ricocheted off of […]
