The Invisible Top Prospect Wilmer Flores

An article by posted on May 27, 2011 0 Comments

Amidst this crazy season, it’s easy to forget about a guy who most of upper management is hoping will be apart of the team’s future within the next few years. Flores, 19, is the prototypical Mets prospect in that he’s young and raw with unlimited amounts of potential. They signed him as an undrafted free […]

Justin Turner “Un-Vail-ed”

It seems like a lot of people have sent the Justin Turner bandwagon into overdrive. From #JustinTurnerFacts on Twitter (tip of the blue Mets cap to The Daily Stache for creating what has become a trending topic on Twitter) to this guy who’s written too many blogs on him recently, Justin Turner seems to be […]

Will The Mets Ever Throw A No-Hitter?

An article by posted on May 20, 2011 0 Comments

Dillon Gee gave the Mets a glimmer of hope in throwing the team’s first-ever no-hitter. However, like so many hopefuls before him, Gee fell short of making history. Though there have been some heartbreaking possible no-hit efforts in Mets history, the last two have been particularly hard to swallow, since the opposing team’s pitcher broke […]

From Left Field: Is Citi Field The Problem?

An article by posted on May 11, 2011 0 Comments

Yesterday, former Met right fielder Jeff Francouer released statements saying that the Mets should consider lowering the left field fence and bringing in the deep gaps of Citi Field. Of course, earlier in the offseason, Francouer, who is currently mashing with the Kansas City Royals, called Citi Field a “damn joke.” Internally, the Mets have […]

Things I Wish Would Go Away Already

Willie Harris had an uncanny ability to make the spectacular play against the Mets, and now as a Met, he’s killing the team from the inside. Hey, lets not place all of the team’s woes on pitchers dropping like flies, the revolving door at second base, and a lack of clutch hitting by the usual […]

The David Wright Trade Watch Should Be On

An article by posted on May 10, 2011 0 Comments

I was watching SNYs “Wheelhouse” tonight when one of the wheelies Eamon McAnaney gave voice to something I had already been thinking the past few days. The issue on the board was whether the Mets should consider trading Jose Reyes or David Wright or even both as the organization considers how to spend it’s meager […]

Morning Grind: Why Is Hu Here Instead Of Luis Hernandez?

An article by posted on May 10, 2011 0 Comments

Hello MMO! Here’s your Morning Grind: Why Is Chin-Lung Hu Here? Mets backup middle infielder Chin-Lung Hu has just been absolutely dreadful to start this season. I see no reason why the 27-year old Taiwanese native is on the major league staff except to crack the cheap “Hu’s on first?” joke on the rare occasion […]

Mets Need Bench Production..Now

An article by posted on May 6, 2011 0 Comments

…badly. Starting an article off with an ellipsis is probably incorrect grammatically, but this article will be filled with mentions of the inability of the Mets to have an effective bench, and thus this discussion comes about. Willie Harris has been a black hole offensively, both as a starter and as a bench player,  striking out […]

Mets Notes: Bay Leaves 2010 Behind

An article by posted on April 27, 2011 0 Comments

Don’t look now, but have you taken a look at Jason Bay’s numbers since he returned from the disabled list? The Mets are 5-0 since Bay was activated on April 21st, and he has strengthened and fortified what was once a meek lineup. Bay is hitting .368 (7-19) with two doubles, one home run, three RBI and […]

Has Angel Pagan Lost His Wings?

An article by posted on April 21, 2011 0 Comments

Angel Pagan has been off to a dreadful start, and there is no debating that. Pagan has not only batted under .170 so far, but he has also lacked the clutch hitting that the Mets relied on so heavily last season. With such a slow start in 2011, it begs the question we are reluctant to ask: Was 2010 just a fluke […]
