MMO Morning Grind: The Cautionary Tale of John Buck

Good morning, Mets fans! Nice win yesterday! We’re over 500. Can we get to 90? Time will tell. Anyway, we’ve reached the point in the season where we can start to throw around terms like “good start” and “bad start” for certain players. But stats at this point in the season can still be incredibly […]

It’s Time to End the Ruben Tejada Era at Shortstop

Since the beginning of the 2013 MLB season there have been exactly seven shortstops to amass at least 250 plate appearances and had their services be worth a negative WAR value.  Of those seven shortstops, two are currently on the Mets active roster.  The Magnificent 7 are as follows: Adeiny Hechavarria: 640 PA,  -1.4 WAR […]

MMO Morning Grind: Appreciating Gonzalez Germen

Good morning, Mets fans! Another nice win last night. A stress-free win, for once. The only blemish on our victory was Jenrry Mejia having to leave early with a torn blister, but considering Mejia’s luck with injuries, I’ll settle for a torn blister any day of the week with that guy. Anyway, my post this […]

Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position. And while there’s nothing to suggest that the Mets have any revived interest in the Mariners prospect, that could change if Ruben Tejada doesn’t start picking it up at the […]

Lagares’ Injury and the Optimist’s View

The hamstring injury to Juan Lagares is unfortunate on so many levels. While the Spring was filled with much debate on how much playing time Lagares would see, it was clear he had become the team’s everyday centerfielder just two weeks into the season. With Lagares, the argument has always been that he is a […]

MMO Morning Grind: And So It Begins…

Good Morning, Mets fans! Our Mets got a nice win last night. Zack Wheeler looked pretty solid, Lucas Duda was great, and Daniel Murphy turned into a Gold Glover for a night. But I have something a bit more troubling on my mind this morning, and that is the Injury Bug. Us Mets fans know […]

MMO Fan Shot: Why Do We Act So Surprised?

An MMO Fan Shot by Dave (FalseHustle) I’m not going to do any research on the subject, but I’m confident in proclaiming that most of us around these MMO parts projected the Mets to be a 75-80 win team in 2014. Sure, there were some optimists who claimed .500 was within reach, and those blind […]

MMO Morning Grind: What To Do With Q?

Good morning, Mets fans! Another crazy game last night. Why do the Mets always do this to us? I know I’m not the only one who actually expected the unthinkable to happen… but once Jose Valverde threw ball 3 to Erick Aybar and the guys in the SNY truck cut to Raul Ibañez looming on deck, […]

Reflections on Willie Randolph

At 3:28 AM on June 17, 2008 I got a call from one of my writers. My first instinct was to hang up on him. “Joe, get up, Willie Randolph just got fired!” I still remember how those words made me jump out of bed, rush to my desktop, and 20 minutes later I posted […]

MMO Fan Shot: Despite All The Frustration, I’m Excited About Our Future

An MMO Fan Shot by Marc M. For most Mets fans, the past several years have been extremely frustrating and understandably so, having registered five consecutive losing seasons coming into 2014, following back-to-back epic collapses by the team in 2007 and 2008. The prospect of a sixth consecutive losing season has been a subject that has […]
