So what does a young pitching stud like Jacob deGrom do after an incredible postseason debut in which he struck out a record 13 Los Angeles Dodgers while out-dueling the best pitcher on the planet, Clayton Kershaw?

But equally important was a seventh inning, bases loaded two-run single by the captain David Wright who is back […]

MMO Fan Shot: The Moment the Mets Woke Up

An MMO Fan Shot by Eric Heller If “The ‘15 Mets” takes on that special status we give to those magic teams, like “86” or “69”, I think you can point to a very specific, mostly overlooked moment from an excruciating July game that transformed our frustrating, dead-end year into one of the most exciting regular […]

Featured Post: You Gotta Sign This Guy…

You gotta sign this guy! But not the guy you think. Yoenis Cespedes has fueled the remarkable run that the Mets have been on this season. He has hit 17 home runs, 44 RBIs along with a .946 OPS making him one of the best mid-season acquisitions in Mets history. These numbers have made a […]

Featured Post: Why Flores Merits More Playing Time In NLDS Over Tejada

As the NLDS against the Dodgers approaches it looks like Ruben Tejada will be manning shortstop for the Mets at least for Game One against Clayton Kershaw. Tejada has good career numbers against Kershaw with a .357 BA so I have no problem with him starting the series opener, but I have some concerns if […]
