The New York Mets, Major League Baseball and MLB Advanced Media today announced that David Wright was named the club’s nominee for the 2013 Hank Aaron Award. Fans can vote exclusively online at Mets.com and MLB.com. Wright, who was named to his seventh All-Star team (fifth as starter), led the Mets with a .307 batting average. The third baseman hit 18 home runs with 58 runs batted in, despite missing six weeks with a right hamstring injury. Wright homered in […]
Carlos Beltran told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he wouldn’t be against a return to the Mets when he becomes a free agent this offseason. “Maybe I’ll see you, maybe I won’t,” Beltran said laughing when asked about a return to the Mets. “I’m going to listen to everybody and we’ll see what happens.” According to sources, Beltran spoke with Mets COO Jeff Wilpon at the All-Star Game in July, and the two […]
On January 3, 1920, Red Sox owner Harry Frazee sold Babe Ruth along with mortgage rights on Fenway Park to the New York Yankees. On January 4, 1920, there were no newspaper articles talking about ‘The Curse of the Bambino.’ For a curse to gain traction two things must happen. First, there must be the passage of time. Secondly, a reversal of fortune based around strange and unexplainable events from that point forward must occur. […]
For the next few days, I will be highlighting some of the best and most popular sabermetric stats available to the public.Today, we begin with OPS+ OPS, or On Base Plus Slugging was the first sabermetric stat to go mainstream. It is On-Base Percentage plus Slugging Percentage. It’s crude and simple, but it’s a decent quick reference tool. OPS, however, is outdone by it’s counterpart OPS+. OPS+ does something very important: puts the OPS into […]
In the summer of 1990 the Yankees were playing the White Sox in a relatively unimportant game. “Neon” Deion Sanders walked to the plate and with the end of his bat he drew an “S” in the dirt with a line through it. A dollar sign. The Sox catcher immediately wiped it away. Undeterred, the 22-year-old Sanders again marked the area in front of home plate with a dollar sign. “That’s why I’m here,” he stated […]
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 sign, to how he would pitch Babe Ruth. The following four questions I found to be most compelling. Q: What […]
Here’s a look at David Wright’s All Star Game batting practice jersey… It complete with the “C” as one of the official captains for the Home Run Derby. These are the jerseys that they will be wearing for the Home Run Derby and are different from the actual All Star Game jerseys that do not feature the skyline. Both Wright and Robinson Cano of the New York Yankees will don the “C” as captains of […]
Imagine waking up tomorrow morning, checking out MMO and reading that Matt Harvey got injured. Our jaws would drop, our stomachs would sink and our heart would skip a beat. Then, to take it one step further, imagine if our ace and the pitcher we intend to build our future around was injured not by pitching, but while taking a turn at bat. Wouldn’t it be that much worse? The question I raise is this: […]
Updated at 5:30 PM According to Terry Collins, it’s too early to worry about Ike Davis and his prolonged slump. “There is no need to panic about Ike Davis, or talk about sending him to the minor leagues,” Collins told reporters. Would the Mets consider sending Ike to minors? “If that discussion is going to be had, it’s not going to be had for a long time. You have to have patience.” Ike Davis is […]
