DAVID WRIGHT, 3B MMO PLAYER OF THE WEEK David Wright finally took flight for the 2013 season this past week, as he lifted off with two home runs in Colorado. The Mets captain had been hitting well to start the year, but was not producing much in the way of power until he entered the thin Colorado air. Wright batted .350/.519/.850, with two triples, two home runs, and five RBI as he helped lead the Mets […]
You know that feeling when Scott Rice walked the first two batters in the 8th inning yesterday with the Mets clinging to a 2 run lead? Kind of a helpless sense of doom and despair where you can’t bear to watch? With a little help from Jayson Werth the result didn’t turn out like so many other late-inning debacles have, but as I exhaled and wiped the sweat from my forehead it got me thinking […]
“On a cold night you have to hit the ball 25 feet farther. So, in other words, if the fence is 338 feet and you hit the ball 338 feet, you’ll be 25 feet short.” – Ralph Kiner, attempting to explain the effect of cold weather on the flight of a baseball. The New York Mets and Minnesota Twins played last Friday night’s game in between snowflakes. According to Major League Baseball, the game time temperature was […]
The world awakens this morning seeking to right itself after a pair of explosions rocked Boston yesterday afternoon. Lost are three souls, with no fewer than another one hundred and thirty-two injured. Also lost in the day’s events, a nation’s sense of security when it comes to sporting events. Long thought to be a potential target, major sporting events are often subjected to increased security measures. To date, the United States had been successful (or […]

With all the attention being paid to John Buck’s torrid start, another Met’s offensive performance has gone under the radar. But his start is just as noteworthy as Buck’s. Daniel Murphy has always been a great contact hitter, lashing doubles at a rate never before seen by a left-handed hitter in Mets history. Nearly one-quarter of his 481 career hits have gone for two bases. But what he’s done over his first ten games this […]
Las Vegas 51s For those of you with weak constitutions, you might want to go away now as I talk about blisters…more specifically, the one that Zack Wheeler apparently had on his throwing hand. It unfortunately burst during the Tuesday night start against the Fresno Grizzlies and the Mets were concerned enough to send him for an MRI. He had been dealing with the blister throughout both of his two starts in 2013, so the question […]
Las Vegas 51s Zack Wheeler made his second start of the season last night for Las Vegas and lasted five-and-a-third innings, allowing four runs (one earned) off eight hits and three walks, while striking out six. A few things to note past that line? First off, Wheeler fields his position pretty well, which is always a positive. Another positive is the fact that his breaking ball looked really strong early and flashed real potential. He […]
