MMO Readers Love The Blue Jerseys!

On Saturday, I launched a new MMO Poll asking our readers what they thought of the Blue Los Mets Jerseys the Mets wore on Friday night.  THE RESULTS ARE IN! Our boys were popping in those jerseys and as these results show, our readers overwhelmingly loved them. As I said in my original post, I’m thinking […]

An article by posted on August 8, 2011 0 Comments

Being a Mets fans is a full time job. It takes a toll on you mentally, physically (if you break stuff) and emotionally. I can not remember a season in recent memory that was just fun, exciting and enjoyable without any let downs at seasons end. It’s part of what makes being a Mets fan […]

Is Jason Bay FINALLY Turning The Corner?

I know, this is probably the third time someone has written an article just like this when Jason Bay has begun to play decently, but in the past 10-15 games, Bay has looked very strong at the plate. Could this finally be the arrival of the 66 million dollar man that the Mets signed in January of 2010? […]

As much as it pains me to say, yesterday’s loss meant more than just an “L” in the loss column. It pretty much signified the end of the Mets playing somewhat meaningful baseball in 2011. The loss dropped the Mets back below .500 and nine back in the wild card. Couple that with the loss […]

In case you were wondering about manager Terry Collins’ contract status, here’s this from the NY Post: Terry Collins has done a “super” job, according to his boss, but that doesn’t mean the Mets are rushing to the manager with a contract extension. “That’s something we’ll not even think about until the end of this […]

MMO Fan Shot – Believing and Quitting Make Strange Bedfellows

Once upon a time, on a hot August 6th day, our beloved NY Mets were nine games out of the playoffs. Not the Wildcard – there was no wildcard back then. In fact there was no Central Division either. Only two teams would make it to the playoffs each season and have a chance to face the […]

Game Summary Mets snap a five game losing streak with an offensive outburst. Mets hit four homeruns in a game for the first time this season, from three guys who combine for thirteen homeruns on the season.

A Look Back At Failure

An article by posted on August 5, 2011 0 Comments

As somebody who’s first blog on this website was a full out defense of Omar Minaya following the Adam Rubin debacle, I thought I’d weigh in on the most recent excuse to try and paint Minaya as some genius that one day we will all look back on and thank. First of all, I don’t […]

The Atlanta Braves are in town and not too long ago that was a big deal. As the Yankees and Red Sox go at it in Fenway Park for first place – it’s a worn story, but it’s real baseball – the Mets are clinging to what is left of their season. After two disheartening […]

3 Up & 3 Down – Mets vs. Braves Series Preview Edition

The New York Mets open up a huge weekend series with the Braves on Friday. I think anything less than a series win, will be disastrous for the guys in blue & orange. Winning two would be great, winning three would be awesome. So today, we have a special edition of 3 & 3, since […]
