MMO Fan Shot: What Run Differential Doesn’t Tell You

An MMO Fan Shot by Joey D. While I expect the Mets to take a significant step forward this season, I have to disagree with the case many make for the Mets based on their run differential last season. Run differential numbers are useless because of the missing nuts and bolts that are hidden behind […]

Why Are Teams Always Insisting On Syndergaard?

As we reported last night, another potential deal for a shortstop – in this case Ian Desmond – fell by the wayside when the Tampa Bay Rays insisted on Noah Syndergaard plus another prospect in return. They also demanded Syndergaard in a trade for Ben Zobrist before eventually trading him to Oakland. It’s amazing how […]

Is Confidence in the 2015 Mets Justified?

I like to think I stay on top of the news and opinions when it comes to the Mets. Besides for checking online newspapers daily I read at least three popular Mets blogs and follow on Twitter dozens of people who discuss the team. On balance there seems to be a lot of optimism regarding […]

I Wouldn’t Trade Our Roster With Any Other Team In The NL East

I was going through some old posts from a couple of years ago looking for something I once had written about Juan Lagares when I came across this photo. It was taken by a Mets staffer during a flight and posted on Mets.com, and I used it in a post that said, “the Mets future […]

Featured Post: 5 Reasons for Mets Optimism in 2015

An MMO Fan Shot by Marc M. (Not4) On the heels of a 79 win season, the big question on everyone’s mind is whether the Mets, as constructed, can win enough to compete for a playoff spot. I agree with many on this site that David Wright’s health could be a huge determining factor on […]

MMO Fan Shot: Why We Need to Stop Worrying About Wilmer Flores
