1964 was a bustling time in our nation’s history. With America still reeling from the shock of our president being assassinated on the streets of Dallas, we were under invasion by a group of four long haired lads from Liverpool. New President Lyndon Johnson declared a ‘War on Poverty.’ Average annual income in America was $6000, a new house cost $13,000, a new car $3500. For $1.25 you could purchase a movie ticket, for $4.50 you […]
A few days ago, the guys on MLB Now were talking about David Wright‘s chances at the Hall of Fame. He had just recorded his 1,500 hit of his career, and those sorts of milestones tend to bring up this kind of debate. So is David Wright a future Hall of Famer? Obviously we don’t have the answer to that question yet, but we can certainly use Wright’s career numbers up to this point to […]
Imagine waking up tomorrow morning, checking out MMO and reading that Matt Harvey got injured. Our jaws would drop, our stomachs would sink and our heart would skip a beat. Then, to take it one step further, imagine if our ace and the pitcher we intend to build our future around was injured not by pitching, but while taking a turn at bat. Wouldn’t it be that much worse? The question I raise is this: […]
Last Sunday, it seemed the Mets were destined to continue their trek down a road they were all too familiar with. After eight innings of unimpressive play, the Mets were about to add to their losing streak. They had dropped their four previous match-ups and the offensively lacking team was two outs away from making it five. That’s when the recently recalled Kirk Nieuwenhuis gave the Mets the perfect Father’s Day gift. Down two runs, […]
Please, join me as I throw a handful of dirt on the coffin of Jordany Valdespin’s career as a New York Met. The one I used to call El Dramático for his ability to spark rallies and hit long home runs is getting playing time for one reason: he’s being shopped. Don’t expect him to be with the Mets past the trade deadline. I’ve been a staunch defender of Valdespin since the Mets’ first intrasquad […]
In four decades of rooting for the Mets my most painful memory, without a doubt, was when Yadier Molina deposited an Aaron Heilman pitch over the wall in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS. I literally could not believe what I saw. Seeing is believing—but not in this case. 2006, like 1986, was OUR year. The 162 games were a mere formality. It took us all winter to recover but when April 07 rolled around, we […]
He is the seven-day sensation that is sweeping the nation. Yasiel Puig has been a major league ballplayer for barely a week and is already making national headlines with a historically hot start to his career. On Friday night, Puig blasted his fourth home run in just his fifth career game, the second player to do that since 1900, the first being Mike Jacobs in 2005. The 22-year old Cuban native has hit the ground […]
The GM is one of the most despised people in New York. People are calling for the manager to be fired. The entire team is neither executing nor playing fundamentally sound baseball. We’re not hitting and fans are now outnumbered by empty seats. The Mets seem destined for a 90+ loss season and avoiding 100 losses will be an accomplishment. The Yankees own the city. Opposing teams are chomping at the bit when they arrive in […]
The 2013 MLB Draft is tomorrow and the top Mets pick speculation is heating up. I recently allotted the mock drafts, compiling the lists where the likely Mets picks would be. Mock Drafts have had players fall and rise since then. Players such as Braden Shipley and Colin Moran rise to consensus top-10 picks, while Meadows has fallen in recent drafts. Therefore, Satish and I speculated these five players are most likely to be drafted […]
