MMO Fan Shot: Mets Can’t Afford To Trade Zack Wheeler

An MMO Fan Shot by The Metssiah This season, the injury plague has spread throughout the Mets clubhouse much like it did in 2015. As soon as David Wright went down, the fan base started clamoring for a big time trade. Every fan has a pipe dream proposal where they just name a bunch of guys on the […]

Mets Changed Their Offensive Approach And It Paid Off Last Night

Following yesterday’s rout of the Pirates, ESPN’s Adam Rubin reported that hitting coach Kevin Long had a “get-together” with his players before the game to discuss their collective approach at the plate. Long’s words must have hit home, as the Mets pounded out 11 runs on 19 hits, both season highs for the club. For […]

Lack of Mets Minor League Development At Crux Of Offensive Struggles

It was only natural to watch last Thursday’s coverage of the MLB Draft and hope the Mets would stockpile some future offensive stars. Such additions would obviously be a few years away from contribution, but with the offense sputtering the way it has been for the last month, it would be nice to know that […]

Bring Reyes Back To Mets? No Way, Jose…

Mets fans always have been and always will be captivated by Jose Reyes.  During his time in Flushing, he meant so much to Mets fans.  He was an exciting leadoff hitter whose speed on the bases was matched only by the speed of his throws to first base.  The joy and excitement he showed on […]

Whither Kevin Long?

We are all well familiar by now with the frustration of watching this Mets’ offense.  The home run numbers are extremely high, the runs scored extremely low.  And, oh, that ghastly average with runners in scoring position – worst in all of baseball.  It has reached the point where one almost dreads seeing the bases […]

It’s Too Early To Hit The Panic Button

Look, I get it. The Mets have been playing less than .500 baseball for over a month and a half. They have a 19-21 record since May 1 and find themselves five games behind the division-leading Washington Nationals. This is not unfamiliar territory for the Mets, we’ve seen this before in 2015 and we all […]

The Mets Need To Hit “More” Homeruns

Let’s start with the obvious.  In each and every at-bat, the optimal result is the homerun.  One through nine, you want each and every one of your batters to hit a homerun each and every time at the plate.  That’s not always going to happen.  As a result, you are going to have to build […]

On Being a Mets Fan in College

College is supposed to be about finding an identity. That’s what they tell you when you first walk in past the gates into a crowded dorm full of strangers. Personally, I was fortunate to come in with one. The identity of being a Mets fan is a badge of honor that I’ve worn ever since […]

What’s Wrong With Michael Conforto And How Should Mets Proceed

The New York Mets offense has simply been bad. When you take a look at the team stats for all Major League clubs this season, the Mets offensive ranks are mostly trending at the bottom of the pile, except for home runs. Their inability to score with runners in scoring position with less than two […]

MMO Fan Shot: I Love David Wright… That’s Why I Want Him To Retire

An MMO Fan Shot by Brendan Birth I know I am not unique among Mets fans for my love of David Wright, my view of him as one of the few bright spots on the team during the dark days of the cash-strapped Wilpon ownership, my admiration for his loyalty to the Mets during that […]
