David Wright spoke out about the overzealous campaign by the Mets to get him voted to the All Star Game. “It’s nice when the organization is trying so hard to do something for one of their players and I can’t thank them enough for that,” Wright said. “But at the same time, I’ve asked them to kind of back it down a little bit, especially with the stuff between innings. You appreciate what they’re trying […]

The surprise was it happened before the team broke camp, but considering the shape he reported in, well, maybe not so much. The second is the inevitable early clamor for the Mets to promote prospect Zack Wheeler, which should be an emphatic NO WAY.Manager Terry Collins told reporters today in Port St. Lucie, but he has […]
If you’re a regular reader of MMO, you know that I haven’t done a recap here since 2009. However, after today’s 11-2 blowout of the Phillies, it would be hard for me not to do a recap, basically because there’s something I have to get off my chest. It’s something that’s been on my mind ever since I listened to WFAN on a cold December afternoon in 2008, when Cole Hamels called the Mets “choke […]
The World Series Ed Leyro wrote about yesterday is likely to come to fruition—Yankees/Phillies, unless the Dodgers and/or Angels sweep the remaining games. And the way New York and Philly are playing, that’s about as likely as snow in the Caribbean. So we’re going to have to face facts here. Yes, a Yankees/Phillies series is going to be like a Mets/Red Sox series would be to a Yankees fan—and we all know how that one […]
These last four games have been great for us Mets fans and for the Mets themselves, but they can’t be making Omar Minaya’s job any easier. With the Mets sinking fast at 7 games under .500 and in fourth place in the NL East after Friday’s loss in Houston, Minaya had to be thinking about becoming a seller at the trade deadline. Sure, that would piss off many of us, but the farm system is […]
