MMO Fan Shot: Is The Tide Shifting For Fred Wilpon?

If you had asked me twelve months ago if the Wilpons should sell the Mets, I’d have been pretty emphatic in my support. In the six months that followed, new reports surfaced describing the debt the Mets were in and it seemed that number grew by $100 million from each report to the next. The […]

A (Citi) Field Of Screams

  This comes from VisualCocaine on Tumblr. It looks like a post apocalyptic vision of Fred Wilpon’s worst nightmare.

Seriously though, it’s pretty cool, scary yes, but still cool.

In fact, it seems lately that Carlos Beltran and “Hall of Fame,” have been seen together in several discussions with Mets fans. Personally, I think the Hall of […]

Reality Bites: 2012 Topps Jose Reyes Baseball Card

REALITY BITES! I guess seeing is believing, and this image certainly brings home the realization that Jose Reyes is now the shortstop for the Miami Marlins. Nice airbrush job by Topps… I’d like to thank Mr. North Jersey for the link and also credit to the Palm Beach Post for the image.

Still No Light At End Of The Tunnel

Pitchers and catchers report to St. Lucie in three weeks and where is the sense of optimism that comes with the approaching baseball season? In the past three years the Mets entered spring training without realistic hope save wishing they could muster a competitive season to keep their dwindling fan base interested and enthused. This […]

Is David Wright The Next Frank Robinson?

Before you start to jump all over me on this, I am not by any means saying that David Wright is on Frank Robinson’s level. Robinson is one of the best hitters of all time, Wright is trying to get his career back on track. Though with all of the trade rumors surrounding Wright going […]

Warthen Must Confront The Bad Habits Exhibited By Mets Pitchers

Bill Petti of Baseball Nation penned a post on how much Park Factors play into a team’s success. He noted the following about the Mets since their move to Citi Field: After opening Citi Field in 2009, the New York Mets saw a significant decline in their ability to score runs. The team averaged 681 runs scored per year […]

I’ll Always Love Carlos Beltran, But…

Recently, Brian Joura at mets360.com posted an interesting piece on whether Carlos Beltran would wear a Mets hat when elected to the Hall of Fame.  The thing that struck me the most about the title was the word “when”. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Carlos Beltran and was hoping the Mets would re-sign […]

Dickey Is A Good Pitcher On A Bad Team

An article by posted on January 29, 2012 0 Comments

Fake Teams takes a look at some good starting pitchers who are toiling for bad teams and lists our own R.A. Dickey among his five picks. Yes, he is 37-years old. But, in knuckleball years, he is really like 27. Now that he has returned from climbing Mt. Kilmanjaro, with all his fingers and toes, […]
