Don’t Let September Get You Down

Yeah, it’s September. The elimination number on the Mets is six. On October 3, Mets baseball will become dormant for the winter as the Wilpon family and Sandy Alderson try to re-sign David Wright and R.A. Dickey to long-term contracts.

MMO Fan Shot: We’re In The Same Deplorable State As In 1979

After a disappointing 1973 World Series loss to the Oakland A’s, despite holding a three games to two lead with two games to play, the 70′s New York Mets quickly fell from grace in the National League East. Back then the East was filled with good strong clubs like the Phillies Pirates, Cardinals, and the […]

MMO Interview: Binghamton Mets Backstop Francisco Pena

Coming from a baseball family, the theory was always that Francisco Pena would shoot through the Mets system and be their starting catcher by 2012. Although his progress has been slower than what that timetable would have required, there is no question that Pena is moving closer to where he needs to be. Now in […]

MMO Fair Or Foul: Phillip Evans Might Never Make It?

From time to time I will check out other Mets websites, and blogsites. I have as they say, some “friends in the biz,” and I enjoy seeing what they’re up to on occasion. Today I was on Mack’s Mets and I saw something there, an opinion by a “scout,” about one of our Mets farmhands, […]

Since that time, the business of baseball has evolved in countless ways. Player unions, media revenue, sponsorships, advertising dollars, […]
