Beltran Leads Cardinals In 10-4 Rout Of The Mets

As the Knicks were getting pasted in Indianapolis, the Mets did their part to put New York sports fans in a gloomy mood in tonight’s 10-4 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals. It was the Mets’ fifth straight loss to drop them to eight games under .500. Since Jordany Valdespin’s tenth-inning grand slam, April 24, […]

Mets Lose Third Straight In 3-2 Loss To Bucs

PRETTY IN PINK? The Mets were beaten by the Pittsburgh Pirates by the score of 3-2 this afternoon in front of a nicely packed Mother’s Day crowd at Citi Field. Matt Harvey started and while he pitched good enough to win, he wasn’t at his best and he seemed to rely mostly on a variety of breaking […]

Jonathon Livingston Niese

The other day I noticed my kid was reading this book that I recognized from when I was around his age. Jonathan Livingston Seagull, by Richard Bach. The short novel about the transcendent ascension of a seagull who refused to be confined by the boundaries of his own defining limitations. He flew higher, faster, until […]

Beltran Says Collins Deserves Big Assist For Wheeler Trade

I read a great article last night from David Lennon of Newsday, that I believe most of you will enjoy. Lennon got together with Carlos Beltran after the Mets lost to the Cardinals, and the former Mets center fielder looked back fondly at his time with the Mets and talked about his first years with […]

Giancarlo Stanton Blockbuster Trade With NY Mets in the Works?

Let me get this out of the way first, I give full credit to RotoExperts for the dramatic title. It looked way too seductive to me and I felt it would be a cardinal sin to mess with it or alter it in any way. But lets get to the sirloin… Apparently they’ve been given some hot […]

Sandy Alderson And His Legacy Of Diminished Expectations

Who can forget where we were and what we were doing on December 16, 2004? (Ok, I admit it. I didn’t know the exact date either). It was a huge day for us fans. After finishing 25 GB and under .500 for the 3rd straight year, Omar Minaya made not only a bold move but […]

Is A Longterm Deal For Wright In Mets’ Best Interest?

Last week in one of our MMO Roundtable posts, I posed the question to our staff about whether David Wright would be back in a Mets uniform next season. Only one out of the seventeen who replied said Wright wouldn’t be back. Almost all of them made comments that Sandy Alderson has to do “whatever it takes”, or […]

As you all know, Andres Torres lost an apparent leadoff double in the ninth inning when he was ruled out for missing first base, and the St. Louis Cardinals held off the Mets 5-4 Monday. What you may not know is that according to an Associated Press report, it was former Met and current Cardinals […]

An article by posted on February 22, 2012 0 Comments

My expectations for the 2012 Mets are admittedly low, but that’s just me, and readers of this blog realize I don’t jump off the deep end when it comes to this team. However, I will be pleased if they continue the aggressive play they performed last year under Terry Collins. The Mets didn’t win, but […]

Temper Your Expectations

Hey MMO readers, I’m not looking to be a Debbie Downer with this post, but I wanted to draw a bit of a comparison to my colleague Clayton’s post yesterday about the Mets offense being better than we think in 2012. I think Clayton drew some fair points, but the bottom line is that it […]
