Last night, former Mets’ righthander Dwight Gooden tossed out the idea of coming up with a nickname for current great righthander Matt Harvey. Doctor K suggested we go with Matt “The Real Deal” Harvey. As is usually the case when I get inspired, I immediately took to Photoshop and went straight to work and this is what I came up with. Hey Matt… This one’s for you…. MATT-TASTIC! Matt Harvey hurled a career-high 8.0 innings yesterday [...]

I’m at a loss for words. Made this today for you, Gary. Rest in peace Kid. This is one of the first graphics I ever made for MMO. I’ll miss you, kid. In 2010, I designed this for our MMO T-shirt Shop. I made Retire 8 Buttons too. I hope this happens. We are going to donate $2.00 from every Retire 8 T-shirt we sell to the Gary Carter Foundation.
The other day I jokingly suggested that I was going to have Kelly design a special graphic for Lord Sandy – a moniker that frequently appears on our comment threads. I even asked if we should make one with a halo or without… Well as luck would have it, longtime friend of MMO and frequent commenter, Mr. North Jersey decided to take on the challenge and offered up this clever rendition: Nice job… I love [...]
No matter what you thought of the loss of Jose Reyes to the Miami Marlins, I think we can all agree on one thing: that Reyes was the best shortstop, infielder, and position player the Mets have ever developed. No Met ever swiped more bases or had more triples. His enthusiasm, passion and love for the game was infectious and Mets fans loved him from the word go. Reyes was electric on the basepaths and [...]
Last night while speaking to Joe, he said something that really struck a chord with me. “Wouldn’t it be awesome if Terry Collins would let Beltran play his final days as a Mets in centerfield for old time’s sake?” How awesome would that be? Do it Terry, do it! Here are the first of some new Carlos Beltran graphics I designed last night in celebration of Carlos Beltran Appreciation Week at Mets Merized Online. Enjoy them! Move over Angel, [...]
This afternoon, NL manager Bruce Bochy announced that Mets right fielder Carlos Beltran will start as the National League’s designated hitter and bat second in the All Star Game. “I like the fact that he is a switch hitter,” Bochy said of Beltran during the All-Star Game press conference. “He gives you another dynamic in that two hole, which will help us.” In 89 games this season, Carlos Beltran is batting .285 with 13 home runs, 52 runs scored and [...]
Here is a re-post of the amazin’ designs that Kelly created for the 2013 All Star Game, which is expected to be played at Citi Field according to multiple reports, including ESPN New York.
