MMO Fan Shot: It’s Not Winning or Losing, It’s How You Play The Game!

Many a little leaguer has heard that phrase after a tough loss or season.

Citi Field: The Apple Has Fallen Far From The Tree Known As Shea

“I think there is some sense that the park is a little more overwhelming to a team that spends half its time there as opposed to a team that comes in for three games and doesn’t really have to alter an approach… We’re taking a very serious look at it, and done some analyses, and […]

Thankfully The 2011 Mets Season Is Finally Over

Put It In The Books! The Mets 2011 season is finally over! What can I say about the Mets 2011 season except thankfully it has finally come to an end. Coming into this season I didn’t expect much and in turn we didn’t get much from this team Sandy Alderson and Terry Collins put out […]

Last Night Was A Night Like No Other

It was stunning to see the Red Sox and Braves collapse over the past month, then finally crumble last night. We witnessed two of the greatest finishes in history, and the nature of it reminded us again of baseball’s magical power. It told us again a game and a season are never over until the […]

To paraphrase one of Howie Rose’s quotes, the 2011 baseball season is over, “put it in the books.” I guess on the positive side, things were not as bad as many baseball pundits predicted, but by no means were things great. GM Sandy Alderson is going to be in for a busy few months trying […]

I saw a picture yesterday of the Mets clubhouse room with all the empty cubby holes – this group knew ahead of time that they could go home and they did. They were all ready to leave and they went. Some to rest up and get healthy, some just to stay home and get to […]

Reyes Asked Out Of The Game

Updated 4:00 pm After today’s game, Jose Reyes told reporters that it was his decision to to leave the game after reaching base in the first inning on a bunt single.

Three Ways The Mets Could Add A Legit Top Of Rotation Starter

It has been very encouraging to see the Mets ending the 2011 season as the second best hitting team in the National League with a .264 team batting average. Only the St. Louis Cardinals batted higher than the Mets did this season. The Mets not only batted well, but were more patient at the plate, […]

Have The Phillies Become The Yankees Of The National League?

As if I didn’t dislike the Yankees enough, now it appears that there are two of them. I know the Phillies are not quite the Yankees, but at this time they are the closest thing the National League has to offer. In recent years the Phillies have opened a new Ballpark, won a world series, […]
