An Amazin’ Start: Breaking Down The Road To 90 Wins

Tip your hat to Terry Collins. Prior to the the three-game set with the Miami Marlins, Collins was faced with a brutal opening 22 game schedule segment, a different closer in each of the first three weeks of the new season, the loss of his best defensive player, Juan Lagares, who was also the team’s […]

Lost In Translation: Zack Wheeler Stands and Delivers

What an incredible start to the Mets season as they head to Philadelphia with a 14-11 record, good enough for second place in the very tough National League East. The hits have been scant, the runs have been scarce, but this team keeps chugging along. “If you have the pitching, anything can happen,” David Wright said […]

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 […]

Can’t Wait for Montero, Syndergaard, and deGrom?  Keep Waiting.

So when is the next wave of starting pitching coming? We’ve been waiting for the day when the young studs in Las Vegas get to double down and make their way into the Mets starting rotation. Rafael Montero is expected to be first. Noah Syndergaard isn’t expected to be far behind. The forgotten one is […]

A Strong Mets Bullpen Being Fueled By Some Unlikely Heroes

I can hardly believe it myself, but this is the third post I’m writing about the bullpen this season, and like the first two, this is to point out what an incredible job they’ve been doing. It’s a pen that’s been put together with some Scotch tape, scraps and Elmer’s glue, but somehow they are […]

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 […]

Mets Are A Perfect 5-0 When Recker Is Starting Catcher

I wanted to update this post with something ESPN’s Mark Simon pointed out about Mets backup catcher Anthony Recker. Mets pitchers continue to put up great numbers with Recker catching. Their ERA is 2.78 and opponents’ batting average is .204 when he is behind the dish. Additionally, the Mets are a perfect 5-0 when Recker is the […]

Lucas Duda Snaps Mets Six-Game Homerless Streak

Lucas Duda had his first key moment since being named the everyday starter at first base when he blasted what proved to be the game-winning home run in the Mets 3-2 win over the Cardinals on Wednesday night. It was his team-leading fourth home run of the year, a solo shot in the sixth inning. […]

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 […]

Playing Eric Young Everyday Hasn’t Improved His Performance

Playing Eric Young Everyday Hasn’t Improved His Performance

Eric Young Jr. is not an ideal leadoff hitter. He is the best candidate on the New York Mets, but that is not saying much. Once Juan Lagares returns, Young Jr. should not even be in the conversation as an everyday player. Since Young Jr. made his MLB debut in 2009, he only exceeded 100 […]
