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 […]

Some More Managerial Options For The Mets

Couple of years back I wrote a piece where I detailed several alternatives to Terry Collins as Manager of the NY Mets. You can read it here if you are so inclined. Well, here we are two years later and wouldn’t you know it, Terry is still our manager. I guess none of the options I […]

DeGrom Does It All, Delivers Big-Time Performance

It was so exciting to watch the Mets demolish the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 14-1 on Saturday night. Last night’s performance was everything that Friday’s performance was not. Great starting pitching, effective relief, crisp defense, and of course an offensive explosion that was a sight for sore eyes. I think we all needed […]

Collins Makes History Batting His Top HR Hitter Ninth

Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reports that when Terry Collins made the decision to bat Wilmer Flores ninth in the batting order on Saturday versus the Milwaukee Brewers, he did something that hasn’t been done in nearly half a century. For the first time since April 30, 1967, the Mets were batting their top home-run […]

MMO Special Feature: Mets Have Lost Third Most Days To DL

I decided to do a little research yesterday after learning Dilson Herrera was heading to the DL. Not to make any excuses because bad baseball is bad baseball anyway you slice it, and excuses are for losers, but… The number of players the Mets have lost to the major league disabled list this season is […]

Nationals Pull Within Half Game Of Mets, Sandy Preaches Patience

Here come the Washington Nationals… In 18 days they’ve climbed back from eight games behind the first place Mets to within a half game of the top spot. How did they do it? They’ve won 13 of their last 17 games. Next week they get their top offensive star back, Anthony Rendon, who started baseball […]

The Baseball Maverick May Want To Consider Reviving Shortstop Next

Nobody wanted to see Wilmer Flores succeed at shortstop more than I did. I spent the majority of this offseason urging whoever would listen that we needed to see if Flores could work at shortstop before completely abandoning the idea. If it worked, the payoff would have been huge. Unfortunately, as the season nears the […]

The Secret To Bartolo Colon’s Success

Bartolo Colon has a secret, but not for long. When the New York Mets signed Colon to a two-year, $20 million deal prior to the 2014 season, fans and the media scoffed at investing in an aging veteran pitcher. Colon is now 41, but honestly, his physique suggests he’s closer to 55. What we saw — […]

Lucas Duda Proving Doubters Wrong With Success Against Lefties

In yesterday’s start against Cub’s lefty Travis Wood, Lucas Duda continued to thrive against southpaws. Duda hit a double and a single in three at-bats off of Wood, who’s held left handed batters to a .216 average during his career. Duda now has his slash line up to .410/.452/.615 with two home runs against lefties […]

Collins Should Look In The Mirror Before Pointing Fingers At Players

It was a forgetful time in Chicago for the Mets after losing to the Cubs again on Thursday afternoon to get swept in a 4 game series. After losing the night before on a bases loaded walk, Thursday was just as excruciating maybe more. The Mets blew a 5-1 lead and gave up the winning […]
