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. The Dodgers and Yankees will be entering a bidding war for your services shortly. Mets pitchers, as Jared Diamond pointed out in his column yesterday, are 0-for-41 on […]

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 […]

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 […]
