MMO Players of the Week: Great Debuts and Nothing New

Thank God the Brewers exist, or else I would have had a very bad week. I really don’t want to remember that Cubs series (seriously, is Wrigley Field cursed?), but it’s not like that much really happened offensively anyway. The pitching was phenomenal per usual, but the staff got the short end of the stick […]

DeGrom Does It All, Delivers Big-Time Performance

It was so exciting to watch the Mets demolish the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 14-1 on Saturday night. Last night’s performance was everything that Friday’s performance was not. Great starting pitching, effective relief, crisp defense, and of course an offensive explosion that was a sight for sore eyes. I think we all needed […]

MMO Fan Shot: No Need To Panic Because Of A Little Adversity

An MMO Fan Shot by Jack Ganchrow “Mets no longer bold and confident, they look and sound desperate” – Matthew Cerrone, MetsBlog I’m a little disappointed at how some Mets fans are reacting to the first bit of adversity they’ve had this season. Any way you look at it, 15-8 is a very solid April […]

Kevin Long Says “Wright Is A Lot Like Jeter”

In an interview with Suzyn Waldman of WFAN, Kevin Long said David Wright is a lot like Derek Jeter, whom he coached for eight years. “He’s a tremendous player. He really, really does a lot of things well,” Long said before Sunday’s 6-4 loss to the Yankees. “He’s a leader; a lot like Jeter. When […]

Who’s The “Not Me” This Time?

Many years ago I worked in an office that had a large staff. When the office manager found that something had been screwed up he would call everyone in and rant, “Who’s the ‘NOT ME’ responsible for this?” I always found that funny – maybe because invariably the culprit was NOT ME. But it brought […]
