As I’ve mentioned to some of the MMO readers in the shoutbox, I just did a blogger Q&A interview with Kerel Cooper for his Mets blog On The Black. You’ve seen your favorite MMO bloggers Joe D, and Taryn Cooper join Kerel for his show, On the Black, but now its my turn. For those of you who don’t know who Kerel Cooper is, or what in the world On the Black is, I’ll be more than […]
Moneyball tells the fascinating tale of Billy Beane’s ingenious use of statistical analysis in order to assemble a winning ballclub without the luxury of a large payroll. Through statistics such as OBP, SLG, and a slew of other stats, Beane was able to snatch ballplayers with “hidden virtues” up for a song, creating a team on a $35 million budget just as successful, if not better than the richest teams in the game. Beane’s A’s had become the very […]
* * * Metsmerized Fan Post * * * Submitted by Metsie For months now I have tried to explain the concept of aggressively protecting the plate with two strikes. The concept is pretty simple. In any at bat you start off: 1 – You look for your pitch or a pitch you can drive and swing. (This is a key part no matter what the count!) 2 – Take whatever balls the pitcher presents to […]
Mets Merized Online has certainly had its share of interviews since its inception in 2005. We’ve interviewed Mets insiders like Brian Costa and Adam Rubin, we’ve interviewed former coaches like Jerry Manuel and Rick Peterson, and we’ve even interviewed current and former Mets players like Angel Pagan, Josh Thole, Ron Swoboda and Brain McRae. You may as well add this interview to the list of player interviews Joe! Former Met Frank Catalanotto was kind enough to answer a few questions for MMO about retirement, his future, […]
Last week I told you I was working on some new designs for our MMO T-Shirt Shop, and here they are! I decided to completely re-design the old “Retired Numbers” design and I based the new t-shirts on one of my newest Mets graphics, check it out: That’s the bumper sticker I designed (all by hand, thank you very much), then I clipped it, made a hi-res gfx, and dropped it onto these babies! MMO T-SHIRT SHOP […]
The calendar might say today is April Fools Day, but for me it feels more like Christmas Eve, New Years Day and Fourth of July all rolled into one! It’s Opening Day Mets Fans!!! I always get so happy around this time of the year and combining my passion for art with my passion for the Mets is one way I like to show off my pride in the Mets. I love see other Mets fans using my graphics […]
Holy Thole! One of the things I’m most excited about this season is watching the continued development of last season’s Mets rookie class, and what a class it was. Ike Davis and Jon Niese both stepped forward in big and demonstrative ways, but when a young 23 year old catcher name Josh Thole replaced Rod Barajas on June 25th, I remember seeing a lot of skeptics. Not anymore! Thole silenced the crowd with all the […]
