The guys over at IMG and Subway were kind enough to allow me to attend a Media Event through MetsMerized, where I got to meet Jared (“The Subway Guy”) and our former manager, Willie Randolph. Right off the bat, I took one look at Randolph and realized that he doesn’t seem to have aged at all — slap a Mets cap on the man and he looks the same as he did when we let […]
Marlon Byrd checks in with MMO to talk about his experience playing for the Mets, how he’s bounced back from his 50-game PEDs suspension, his time in the Mexican League, if he thinks he’ll be traded and how to carry the momentum into the second half of the season. MMO: David mentioned before yesterday’s game that it’s been great having you on this team for your presence on and off the field, especially for the […]
Seven-time All-Star third baseman David Wright checked in with MMO before Game 2 of the Mets’ three-game series against the Giants tonight, to share his thoughts about playing in the All-Star Game at Citi Field, the National League’s chances for the Home Run Derby, all these crazy extra inning games, and what’s in store for the second half of the season. MMO: You’re going to your seventh All-Star Game and you have a plethora of […]
Thousands of baseball books have been published. Millions of baseball stories have been told, every one of them starts with the same basic understanding: two teams, nine innings, balls, strikes, runs, hits and errors. Along the way there are various twists and turns ending in perfect games, no hitters, walk off home runs and everything in between. No two games are the same, but many are alike. They all come back to the final out. […]
In perhaps what is my favorite interview of our young prospect to date, David Laurila of FanGraphs profiled Noah Syndergaard after he made his Double-A debut last Sunday. The 6’6” right-hander, who is now gaining notoriety as “Thor”, looked very impressive and is advanced for his age. There are some awesome quotes in the interview that I whole-heartedly recommend that you read, where he discusses his repertoire, mechanical changes, and his feelings about making his […]
Cyclones’ lefty reliever John Mincone is back in Brooklyn this summer, and already he’s off to a similar start as last year’s All-Star campaign. He maybe was a candidate to start the year at a higher level of the minors, but he suffered a bout of tendinitis that delayed his offseason conditioning. He’s settled in as the Cyclones’ closer this year, and he’s been unhittable – striking out seven batters in 3.2 innings of work. […]
Former Mets’ star Lee Mazzilli made the borough of Brooklyn his stomping grounds growing up. Abraham Lincoln H.S. in Coney Island was his home until the Mets drafted him right out of high school in 1973. Located just a mile and half from Lincoln down Ocean Parkway and on Surf Avenue is MCU Park. Though the stadium wasn’t there during Mazzilli’s playing days, he now has a special connection to the park. Lee’s son, L.J. […]
When you’re a kid from Louisiana, New York must seem like another universe. People from New York often think that Brooklyn is a completely different universe. So imagine being Mets’ 2012 first-round draft-pick Gavin Cecchini. Not only is he a Louisiana boy playing in New York, but he’s also getting a close up taste of Brooklyn as the Cyclones’ starting shortstop. But Cecchini said that it really hasn’t been too much of a culture shock, […]
Baseball has been uniting father and son since the inception of the game in the 1850s. So on this Father’s Day, we are grateful to the many dads out there who taught us how to play America’s pastime. With the Chicago Cubs in town for this past weekend’s series, a few of the visiting players shared their memories growing up learning the tools of the trade from their fathers. Following in Dad’s Footsteps As the […]
