1986 Mets vs 2016 Mets: Was Strawberry Right?

An MMO Fan Shot by Carl Aridas In a recent interview, featured here on Metsmerized Online, Mets’ great Darryl Strawberry stated that the 2016 NY Mets couldn’t compare to the 1986 Mets team that won the World Series.  Given that the 1986 anniversary celebration just passed at Shea, errr Citi Field, I wondered whether Darryl was […]

Talkin’ Mets: Season on the Brink, Faith & Fear in Flushing, Visiting Ballparks

The Mets season is at an embarrassing low after a three-game sweep by the Braves at Citi Field. Terry Collins says a shakeup may be imminent. The real shakeup, in my opinion, is firing Collins who has proven to be incapable of getting this group to the next level. Greg Prince of Faith and Fear […]

MMO Exclusive: Jason Bay Wishes Things Could Have Been Better With Mets

From All-Star to disappointment; that’s what fans saw as Jason Bay took the podium last night representing the Pirates at the 2016 MLB Draft. Pittsburgh fans had a two-time All-Star and a middle-of-the-order slugger. Mets fans, however, saw what could have been, rather than what was. Bay, in the area for the first time since […]

Talkin’ Mets: 2016 MLB Draft, Brew-Crew Solution and Trading Conforto

The Mets just finished a uninspiring and bizarre 10-game road trip that saw them finish at 5-5. I discuss whether Sandy Alderson needs a trade that puts the “chips to to the center of the table” in 2016. Are Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy available? If so, would they be a great fit for this […]

MMO Fan Shot: Super Joe, the Mets’ Everyman

An MMO Fan Shot by Michael R. Ebert Before the days of the Dark Knight, Thor and Captain America, the New York Mets had a different kind of superhero: Super Joe McEwing. Unlike today’s crop of blue-and-orange heroes, McEwing’s super power was not dominance. In fact, he wasn’t even a starter. Rather, he was a […]
