I’m sure you all remember the fantastic job Jacob Resnick did when while in the SNY booth with Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez and Ron Darling, he famously called a dramatic first-pitch, solo home run hit by Jose Reyes. Jacob was the Mets Kidcaster in 2011 when he made his memorable, emphatic call, “It’s gone!” These days, Jacob is one the many featured writers on MMO. In honor of Carlos Beltran returning to New York, albeit our […]
The Mets can spend this offseason. That has been the overall message conveyed for the past several months, however will they spend and to what degree remains the begging question. The “Red Sox Model” has been mentioned a great deal, meaning the Amazin’s would avoid the top-tier free agents, instead finding the Shane Victorinos and Mike Napolis on the market and signing them to lesser deals. Staying true to the theme of this mid-level shopping […]
The Baseball Writers Association of America (BBWAA) just announced the top three finalists for American League and National League Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, Manager of the Year, and Most Valuable Player awards. National League Rookie of the Year Jose Fernandez, SP, Marlins Shelby Miller, SP, Cardinals Yasiel Puig, OF, Dodgers American League Rookie of the Year Chris Archer, SP, Rays Jose Iglesias, SS, Tigers Wil Myers, OF, Rays National League Manager of the Year Fredi […]
The New York Mets have provided their fans with plenty of frights and terrifying moments over their 52 year history. Some of those moments still raise the hairs on the backs of our necks whenever we think about them. If we were to compile some of them and put them into some sort of order, which would you rank number one? I would imagine the Midnight Massacre would still rank pretty high on the list […]
Several people I spoke with and greatly respect said they were disappointed the Mets didn’t make a run at Cuban free-agent first baseman Jose Abreu, who signed a six-year, $68-million contract with the Chicago White Sox. Considering the success of Oakland’s Yoenis Cespedes and the Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig, all of a sudden tapping the Cuban market is the hot thing. But sometimes teams can get burned touching hot objects. Abreu, 26, last played on an international stage during the […]
Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this moment. What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham has had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam Wainwright‘s infamous breaking ball struck the black leather of […]
I find it impossible to read an article or a forum about Carlos Beltran without there being some mention of “the curveball” or Adam Wainwright. That of course refers to Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS where, with the bases loaded and the winning run on first base with two outs in the ninth, Beltran stared a curveball from Adam Wainwright all the way into the glove of Yadier Molina, thus ending the series. I […]
Tuesday night’s game at Citi Field marked the first time the New York Mets organization has hosted the Midsummer Classic in nearly 50 years. The last one was at Shea in it’s inaugural season of 1964. While this year’s game couldn’t match the on-field drama of that contest which ended when the Phillies’ Johnny Callison hit a walk-off homerun (long before anyone ever used the word “walk-off”) to give the NL a 7-4 victory it […]
I was over at FanGraphs curious to see what Jeremy Hefner‘s WAR (Wins Above Replacement) was for the season for another post I’m working on. While I was there I checked to see who the National League leaders in WAR were. What a nice surprise… Carlos Gomez, Brewers – 5.0 David Wright, Mets – 4.5 Adam Wainwright, Cardinals – 4.4 Matt Harvey, Mets – 4.3 Carlos Gonzalez, Rockies – 4.1 What is fascinating to me […]
