Mets 2012 Season Will Be A Near Total Loss

Its hard to fathom now, but the Mets had a realistic shot at the playoffs only one month ago.  Since then the team has taken a turn for the worst with a lot of poorly played baseball compounded by additional injuries.  In the process, the current situation has re-highlighted some glaring issues that the team’s […]

With Torreabla And Shoppach Available, Should Mets Take A Flier?

Kelly Shoppach would be a great addition to the Mets as he bats right handed with some power, which is something we could really use from our backstops. His best season came with Cleveland where he hit 21 home runs back in 2008. After he left the Indians he struggled for a few seasons with […]

MMO Fan Shot: What Will the Mets Do With R.A. Dickey?

R.A. Dickey has been a cornerstone of the New York Mets’ early success during the 2012 season. While he had pitched well in the previous two seasons, nobody was expecting a sub-3.00 ERA, thirteen wins and an All-Star appearance. His success has presented the Mets with a dilemma, and the team must decide whether to […]

Morning Grind: There’s Still A Lot Of Baseball Left

Throughout this five game losing streak, there has been a tsunami of negativity following what was a very exciting and positive first half for the New York Mets. Yes they are in a rut in what is an awful time to do so, but that doesn’t mean in any way, shape or form that the Amazin’s are out […]

Morning Grind: Look At These 2012 Mets And Tell Me That Clutch Doesn’t Exist

If there was ever any merit to the concept that clutch hitting doesn’t exist, that “theory” has been completely disproven by these 2012 New York Mets by one lone number. 185.

MMO Minors: A Demotion For Familia and A Promotion For Mateo Might Be Imminent

I find it amazing how little attention RHP Luis Mateo gets when the topic of conversation is about the Mets’ best pitching prospects. If you didn’t know any better you would think that Zack Wheeler, Jeurys Familia, Matt Harvey and one or two others, were the only starting pitchers in the Mets minor league system. So […]

Bullpen’s Folly: Last Night’s Win Against The Rays Was A Rare Delight

Stephen Guilbert from Mack’s Mets penned an interesting post that pointed out a rare occurence in last night’s 11-2 win against the Tampa Bay Rays. Here’s a small part of it: Last night, the Mets accomplished a feat that has proved difficult for them in 2012–they played a full nine-inning game in which the bullpen did […]
