All of us have come to love the uplifting and inspirational story of a rookie making good on his promise. Case in point, Ike Davis.

A few weeks ago, before the blogosphere erupted with stories about the Mets trading for either Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt, I wrote an article here on MMO, The New Mets Ace In The Hole.

There hasn’t been a time where there’s more to talk about since the offseason than right now. Your favorite orange and blue clad warriors are firmly in second place less than a game behind the division leading Bravos.

An article by posted on June 25, 2010 0 Comments

It’s always puzzling to me the way some Mets “fans” treat David Wright. Part of the problem I think has to be Derek Jeter. Jeter has set the bar so high for being the “face of a NY franchise,” that no matter who puts on a Yankees or Mets jersey years from now, they will […]
