A Yankee Lesson For Nimmo, Cecchini and Some Mets Fans

A good friend of mine recently sent her only child, a son, off to college. I remember those times as heart wrenching moments when each of my three children left the nest. To occupy my mind, I would usually wrap myself around some kind of project. That may have been my friend’s strategy, too. Knowing that I love […]

MMO Mailbag: Could Wright Be Convinced To Move To Left Field?

I thought I would share an interesting email exchange I had with Dave In Spain who I’m sure most of you know from MMO and several other popular Mets sites. I know they’d never ask the Captain, but do you think David Wright could ever be convinced to “volunteer” to move to left field? This would […]

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 […]

Harvey And Wheeler Give Met Fans A Glimpse Into The Future

There might be some question if Zack Wheeler is ready to assume the role of savior for the New York Mets, despite his and manager Terry Collins’ proclamations to the contrary of those lofty expectations. With the statistical and financial numbers having been crunched, the decision is it is time to start the clock on Wheeler. The Mets don’t […]

Bob Costas Can Kiss Our Collective Orange and Blue Asses

Is it me or has veteran broadcaster and baseball historian Bob Costas gone from beloved to just plain old bewildering over the last few years? He always seems to embroil himself in every controversy that comes around and not in a good way either… Sometimes he even likes to stir up his own controversies,,, During […]

Chipper Jones Says Hell No To The Yankees

I was very glad to see Chipper Jones reject the Yankees’ overtures for a comeback. It’s not that I wouldn’t want to see Jones have a change of heart, but not with the Yankees … not with anybody else but the Braves. I’ve always admired players to begin and end it with the same team. That‘s what […]
