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 […]

The Frustration of Loving the Mets

Someone once joked “Marriage is about finding that one special person to annoy you the rest of your life.” The same could be said of Baseball fans. In our case, we’ve found the Mets. On Thursday, April 3rd, the Mets lost to Washington, 8-2 and dropped to 0-3. We’d given up 22 runs in 3 […]

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.

Chris Young Is Dangerous!

One of the highlights of Sunday’s 4-0 win over the Marlins was watching outfielder Chris Young blast a shot in the fifth inning that just missed being a home run as the wind drifted foul. Almost everyone thought it was gone, including the pitcher who served it up, Tom Koehler, who turned and watched and then […]

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 […]
