From Left Field: Mets Have No Luck With Free Agents

We’ve played about a month of the season, and already the Mets’ prized free agent of the offseason – Curtis Granderson – has appeared lost at the plate. As a Met fan, I understand what patience truly is, but Granderson’s struggles are certainly alarming for a player who has not only experienced success but has […]

MMO Fan Shot: Dave Hudgens and The Mets´ Way

An MMO Fan Shot by Dave in Spain  Dave Hudgens has been the Mets´ hitting coach since 2011. He and the Mets´ braintrust are proponents of a high- OBP approach, and being patiently aggressive. Here is the progression of the ranking of Mets OBP in MLB under Hudgens´ tenure: 2011 – 6th 2012 – 20th […]

Eric Campbell Making A Case For Mets Bench Spot

The recent performance of 27-year old Eric Campbell (AKA “Soup”) in Las Vegas may be proving costly in Josh Satin’s future as bench player/platoon first basemen for the Mets. In limited at bats this year for the Mets, (14), Satin has batted .143 with six strikeouts to go along with a .294 OBP. His strikeout […]

How About Some Offense, Please?

  According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, manager Terry Collins suggested he might give our current lineup a month — with Curtis Granderson No. 2, Daniel Murphy No. 4 and Lucas Duda No. 6 — before eventually placing Duda in the cleanup spot. “We’ve put a lot on Lucas’ plate in the past week,” Collins said about the reluctance to […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Insurance Run Epidemic

Good morning, Mets fans! Let me set the scene. The Mets head into an important inning, late in the game. It might even be the 9th. It’s usually the 9th. They’re down by a run, or maybe 2. Whatever the deficit is, it’s usually larger by the time the inning ends. The Mets hand out […]

It’s Time for Sandy to Upgrade Shortstop

After Jenrry Mejia and the bullpen turned in spectacular performances to help the Mets improve to 10-9 last night, I thought to myself, how the hell are the Mets one game above .500 given how bad their offense has been to start the season? It’s even more mind-boggling when you consider the caliber of teams […]

MMO Spotlight: Jenrry Mejia is 3-0 with a 1.99 ERA

The Mets are now 4-0 in games started by Jenrry Mejia. On Monday night against the St. Louis Cardinals, Mejia was sizzling as he held the defending NL champs to just four hits in 6.2 scoreless innings. With blister-gate completely behind him, the young righty looked like an unstoppable force on the mound, stopping the Cards’ […]

Collins Needs to Stop Babying Duda and Bat Him Cleanup

When Terry Collins made the decision to get Curtis Granderson out of the cleanup spot, I wasn’t really too surprised. It was something that clearly needed to be done. Hopefully, this will get Granderson’s bat going again and he can become the run producer this team thought they were getting when they signed him to […]

MMO Morning Grind: Too Much “Free Baseball” Could Prove Costly

Good morning, Mets Fans! Nice win yesterday, although it took a bit too long, dragging on for 14 innings before Curtis Granderson won it by doing what he does best: making an out. The absurd length of yesterday’s game is actually what brings me to the topic of this edition of the Morning Grind. The […]

Restoring Trust and My Night at Citi Field

Minor tweaks of the nutritional program are not the answer. Changing the eating schedule so the players have more time to digest their food will bring no measurable change in outcomes. The Mets failure to win games at Citi Field is a hot topic as we move towards the end of first month of a […]
