MMO Fan Shot: The Mets 8-9-1 Has Been Abysmal

An MMO Fan Shot by Ryan Flanagan Agonizingly documented to the point of nauseam, the Mets situation at shortstop is one that has frustrated Met fans to the point of complete and total state of confusion. It’s is well known, well documented, and proven in the stat line that the two-headed SS platoon the Mets […]

The Bullpen Fix Can Not Wait

Tuesday night was brutal. Depressing. Infuriating. You name the negative emotion, I likely felt it. You likely did too. The first month of the season was a feel good story. But we were not naive enough to forget our team’s shortcomings. No production from SS, strikeouts from our big free agent signing and for some […]

Another Gut-Punch Loss …

I am slightly peeved after last night’s game. I believe last night’s game should have been a win for the Mets. All the signs were there, good starting pitching, just enough offense. It felt like a routine victory, but the win was snatched out of our jaws like a buckshot duck pulled from a lab’s […]

Righting The Wrongs

Usually I’m not the type to tell someone “I told you so”. It’s annoying at best and at its worst it can make you want to slug the person who says it. That doesn’t mean there aren’t times when facts are so evident that they hit you in the face leaving you feeling like Delino […]

An Optimistic Met Fan’s Diatribe On Civility

I used to think there were two kinds of Mets fans in New York, the optimists and the pessimists. My theory was that whether or not you are an optimist or a pessimist depended on how you were raised. If your Dad for instance was an optimist, well then as a teenager during your formative […]

3 Up & 3 Down: Rocky Mountain High

If I changed my name to “Captain Obvious” I would have said that the Mets were hoping to start the month of May the way they ended April.  With a rainout.  I kid I kid.  Things were certainly going right before the calender changed as the Mets took two out of three from the Marlins, […]

Quick Starts Don’t Always Guarantee Happy Endings

In 2006, the Mets rolled to a division title.  The turning point of the season came in early June, during a three-city, ten-game road trip.  The Mets had opened up a seven-game bulge in the NL East by late April, but their lead in the division had been halved to a more tenuous 3½-game lead […]

Stop Trying to Fix the Mets

Everybody wants to fix the Mets, and it seems that in doing so, we tend to forget the recent past. When articles get written by the New York Times or ESPN’s Adam Rubin we tend to forget that the Mets were on the verge of something truly amazing in 2006. Here’s the truth about the […]

And The Beat Goes On

You know what I am growing tired of lately? It seems the people who cover the New York Mets feel it is their obligation to contribute whatever they can to ensure the fan base feels as lousy as possible with regards to their support of the NY Mets. I don’t understand why crushing the team […]

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 […]
