Collins Preaches Patience For d’Arnaud, Ojeda Disagrees And Says He’s Lost

“He has no idea what he’s doing up there. He has no idea what pitch is coming, where it’s going, and what he’s going to do with it. D’Arnaud is lost.” That’s what Bobby Ojeda had to say after d’Arnaud went 0-for-3 on Thursday night. Ojeda ran video and criticized d’Arnaud’s approach and the uppercut […]

Being ‘Young And A Met’ Doesn’t Mean What It Once Did

In a world where dominance on the pitching mound is King, one man is the last one standing. The closer. Or maybe not the closer, but a relief “ace.” The guy who inherits a game-turning moment. The bases jammed with bad guys just itching to score and he calmly saves the day by freezing them […]

Where is the Commitment to Winning?

After a decent week of beating up on struggling teams like the Pirates and Phillies, and seeing the Mets come to within a game of .500, you could imagine the wide-eyed look I gave at the prospect of a visit to Wrigley Field and the Cubs. Now, a mere three days later, all of that […]

MMO Fan Shot: Zen and the Misery of Being a Met Fan

An MMO Fan Shot by Andy Love of Fair and Unbalanced. Being a Met fan is not a choice.  As a recent study published in the New York Times confirmed, if your team wins a championship when you are between the ages of 8 and 12, you are far more likely to maintain a lifetime loyalty to that team.  […]

Bring Out The Tiger In Granderson

Tuesday night’s game really got me thinking about the future of Curtis Granderson. He played exactly how I would like to see him play moving forward. He had three hits, all of which were singles and also stole a base. The amount of pressure on Granderson’s shoulders goes beyond the $60 million dollar contract he […]

Wheeler Stellar Again As His Confidence Continues To Soar

As I had speculated last week (and hoped for), Zack Wheeler has indeed turned a corner and is making his presence felt in the National League with each passing start. Wheeler was on top of his game against the Cubs, limiting them to just two hits over 6.2 scoreless innings, while walking a pair and striking […]

Double-D Getting Opportunity To Show His Stuff

At NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton we called him Double-D. After Matt den Dekker joined the Mets Double-A roster, it didn’t take long for a B-Met mainstay, a fan who dutifully mans a seat behind home plate a nudge to the third base side, to shout out, “Come on Double-D, hit it hard somewhere,” when den […]

Mets Bullpen Shines in Long Philly Series

The Mets shuffled through 12 different relievers in the first two months of the season. Then they added two new relievers to the bunch during their recent five-game series in Philly. Without established roles, or even an established roster in the bullpen, it is hard to predict on a day-to-day basis which pitcher will be […]
