Mets Mid-Season Report Card

At 37-45, the Mets are just over halfway through the 2014 season. So far this season, we’ve seen an exciting month of April, a dreadful May, and an only slightly better month of June. We’ve seen certain players play unexpectedly well and others not live up to expectations. From the players to the manager to […]

It Was A Poorly Conceived Roster Right From The Start

There is so much I want to say and write about this team right now, but I can only produce content in short bursts for now. One of our readers emailed me regarding the six-outfielder configuration the Mets are now choosing to employ. Obviously, the Mets are desperate and this new tactic only shows a […]

Fishing For Hope In A Resurgent Bullpen

I was fishing up in northern MN a few years back and I caught a big large mouth bass along with a number of other keepers. It was a good 22 inches and four pounds. I had the damned thing on a stringer. I’d never worked with a stringer, always used a bucket catching porgies […]

MMO Fan Shot: Keep Waving Those Towels

An MMO Fan Shot by Matt Szatkowski Tough. When describing the Mets, over the past 7 years, this adjective has hardly been used. As the infamous curveball buckled Carlos Beltran’s knees, it also seemed to take down the team’s mental fortitude. The 2007 season would bring more frustration ending in an epic collapse, and there […]

MMO Fan Shot: Comparing MLB Payrolls Per Market

An MMO Fan Shot by Jonathan (Mets Fan in Paris) I thought I’d pass along some research I recently conducted on a topic you might be interested in debating on MMO. It’s another way to look at the current Mets payroll level in comparison with all the other MLB teams. Rather than just looking at where […]

Mets Should Sign Cuban Defector Yasmani Tomas

As you may or may not know by now, Cuban outfielder Yasmani Tomas defected from Cuba recently. Tomas, 23, is a 6’1 230-pound outfielder with monster power potential. Before his defection he’d been playing professional baseball in Cuba for Industriales. In 97 games last season for Industriales he hit .275 with 10 homeruns and 59 […]

It’s Time for a New Voice.  Bring in Wally.

I don’t have anything against Terry Collins. He was asked to steer a rudderless ship for the past several seasons, knowing full well that he didn’t have a chance of winning and did the best with an inferior group of players. When he came on board prior to the 2011 season, he promised the fans […]

With Gee Inching Closer, Who Loses Their Spot?

ESPN’s Joe Kaiser posed this question earlier today, and it’s an interesting one: Whose spot will Dillon Gee take in the Mets rotation? It appears that the two most obvious candidates are Jacob deGrom and Daisuke Matsuzaka. deGrom, one of the Mets top pitching prospects, was promoted from Las Vegas in mid-May, has yet to […]

Path Of A 4A Player Every organization carries a number of players who are referred to as Quad-A material. From early on, many are deemed for this generic role. Typically, they are selected in the middle rounds of the draft and produce well enough at every level to advance to Triple A. They arrive at […]

MMO Fan Shot: Are the Odds Stacked Against Mets Prospects?

An MMO Fan Shot by Ryan Flanagan The New York Mets are a team clearly building through the farm in their quest for success. They are a team forming a foundation of prospects to serve as the sole future of the team, in-lieu of spending big on big-ticket Free Agents in the offseason. So much […]
