Efficiency From The Mets Bullpen

Despite the Mets 2-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, there was one bright spot worth noting, and surprisingly it came from the bullpen. After a solid start by Jon Niese who tossed 6.2 innings in his return to the mound, the Mets bullpen took over with Gonzalez Germen, Kyle Farnsworth, and Jose Valverde […]

MMO Players of the Week: The Unlikely Heroes

Opening week for the New York Mets certainly did not go as planned: bullpen woes, absent offense, game-changing injuries, silly defensive blunders and questionable managerial decisions all contributed to a rather frustrating 2-4 start. As most of the team becomes acclimated to their new teammates, however, some players are taking it upon themselves to rise above expectations early […]

Yankees Have No Intentions Of Trading Gardner

The Yankees have “absolutely no intention” of trading Brett Gardner to clear room in center field for Jacoby Ellsbury or to fill a need elsewhere, according to team president Randy Levine.

Mets Will Likely Keep Murphy Unless They Are Overwhelmed

In a quick update to this post from yesterday, a team that likes Daniel Murphy and checked in on him told ESPN New York that the Mets’ asking price was “substantial.” That led the source to speculate that the Mets ultimately may hold onto the second baseman. “The team that approached the Mets, by the way, had no […]

MMO Mailbag Tackles Brandon Phillips, Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury

Brandon Phillips A Met? Don’t Bet On It… Why is it that every quality player who becomes available or is on the block is suddenly looked at as the perfect fit for the Mets? Is it because it’s in our nature as Met fans to be dreamers like John Lennon? Let me put a few […]

NL Wildcard Preview: Reds at Pirates

Last night was just the opening act, tonight the playoffs officially begin! This year’s playoffs (minus not having the Mets) to me look to be very enjoyable on paper. I don’t think there is a team that I legitimately can say I have a strong feeling “should” win it all. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Pirates welcome […]

Is Daniel Murphy Worth $4 Million Dollars?

I couldn’t help but notice something that was written on MetsBlog yesterday that suggested that Daniel Murphy was not worth $4 million dollars. Murphy is eligible for arbitration each of the next two seasons, and I expect he’ll earn around $4 million in 2014. It’s plausible to think Alderson views Murphy as not worth his […]

AL Defeats NL 3-0 In Mid-Summer Classic Amid Some Memorable Moments

Well the 2013 All-Star Game has come to a close as the American League defeated the National League by the score of 3-0. It was the lowest-scoring All-Star Game since 1990, when the AL earned a 2-0 victory. I loved the Opening Ceremonies and it was great to see Carlos Beltran and Mariano Rivera get some […]

Making The Case For A Daniel Murphy All-Star Bid

Amid a season that has been for the most part filled with disappointment and under-performance, a bright spot shines bright on this 22-32 New York Mets ballclub, and that beacon of light is named Daniel Murphy. Murphy has emerged alongside David Wright as a primary source of offensive production on the year. Batting a cool […]
