MMO Fan Shot: A New Met Narrative

An MMO Fan Shot by Andy Love The sickening feeling that the Mets blew a world championship within their grasp will likely (hopefully) recede.  The visions of Lucas Duda‘s wild throw, Daniel Murphy‘s porous glove, Yoenis Cespedes‘ soccer-style fielding, and Jeurys Familia‘s ill-advised quick pitch will likely (hopefully) fade.  And then we can appreciate that this […]

2015, The Year The Magic Came Back

I know it’s painful right now – but the future looks bright… And so it has ended. The 2015 roller-coaster season came to a crashing halt on the franchise´s first ever November game.

But For Three Pitches…

Here are the grim facts:  The Mets were tied or in the lead 77% of the time in the 2015 World Series.  They were tied or ahead for 41 of the 53 innings. And while you would not be wrong in claiming our dormant offense had much to do with our demise, you can now […]

The Team That Stole New York

I have no words. Well, of course I do. I have many words. But as last night’s fairytale disintegrated into the nightmare to end all nightmares, I had none. Every negative emotion — anxiety, frustration, and then exasperation — flowed through me, and flowed through all of us last night. The truth is, the Mets’ […]

Thoughts On A Horrific Halloween Loss For Mets

I know we’re playing with house money and I know I wrote after the NLDS that no matter what happens the rest of the way, this has been a fun, exciting and truly successful season for the Mets. And all of that is still true and still applies. But to be honest, none of that […]

Royal Lip Flap

There is an expression In the TV business for something producers try always to avoid.  It happens when you see a talking head moving his lips on screen, but don’t hear him. It’s called lip flap.  Your mouth keeps moving, but nothing comes out. And such was the case with the Kansas City Royals in Game […]

What Winning On The Big Stage Felt Like

I think it was during God Bless America that things started to really make sense and reality set in. I had yet to convince myself that I was attending a World Series game in 2015 at Citi Field, one in which the Mets were competing in. Merely typing that into my computer seemed odd, like […]

It’s All About Game Three… Nothing Else Matters

There’s no denying the New York Mets have dug themselves into a huge hole, but doesn’t mean they can’t climb out of it, despite the long odds against them. The Mets said confidently on Twitter yesterday that despite the 0-2 hole they are not giving up. I wouldn’t expect it any other way from a […]

Are Mets Starters Out Of Gas?

The first two games of the World Series have not been particularly kind to Mets starting pitching. Both Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom, while not terrible by any means, were certainly off their games. This begs the question: has the fatigue of the long season become too much? In Game 1, Harvey went six innings, […]
