Featured Post: Harvey Was Not The Hero We Deserved, But The One We Needed

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.

Beltran’s Cooperstown Headgear

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 […]

An MMO Fan Shot by Costa Michalakis 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.

Hey Met Fans… Check This Out…

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.

Hefner Constantly Making Adjustments To Maintain His Edge

It was Jeremy Hefner‘s turn to have a Sunday round with Steve Serby of the New York Post. As is usually the case, Serby did a nice job of revealing a side of Hefner we hadn’t known on a variety of topics ranging from the two times he was drafted by the Mets and didn’t […]

Baseball’s All-Time Underachievers: 2006-2008 Mets?

Ken Davidoff of the NY Post ranked his Top 5 All-Time MLB Underachievers and listed the 2006-2008 Mets second behind the 1980s Expos. About why he chose the Mets, he writes: 2000s Mets. Carlos Beltran would be a Hall of Famer if he retired today. David Wright is on a Cooperstown track. Carlos Delgado probably […]

2013 All Star Game: Give Matt Harvey The Damn Ball

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York wrote what I felt was one of the strongest arguments in making the case for Matt Harvey starting the All Star Game for the National League. He first compares Harvey, who he calls the NL’s Justin Verlander, to last season’s NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey: Through 16 starts, […]

Mets Waste A Gem By Harvey In 2-1 Loss To Cards

Well, this is sort of becoming the norm now, isn’t it? You can almost predict exactly what’s going to happen. Matt Harvey goes out, pitches his heart out, and somehow gets cheated out of a win. As much as we all hoped for that streak to break today, the Mets offense was not up to […]
