Syndergaard Does It All, Hammers Phillies But Good

Reportedly, Noah Syndergaard promised his dad a win on Wednesday for his birthday, and like a dutiful and appreciative son he gave his father all that and more. On the mound, Syndergaard was absolutely filthy, blending his 100 mph heat with a jaw-dropping curve and knee-buckling sinker that left the Phillies lineup stunned, helpless, and […]

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 […]

Here Comes The Grandy Man!

Don’t look now ladies and gentleman, but Curtis Granderson is on a major tear, and better than that, he’s in the midst of a desperately needed power surge. I’m shocked at how widely ignored Granderson’s recent play is in the Mets universe, but maybe this post will spur others on. Granderson hit his second leadoff […]

John Mayberry Jr. Is Batting .130 Against Lefty Pitching

The Mets signed John Mayberry in the offseason to a one year, $1.45 million contract mainly because of his success hitting against lefties. Mayberry is mainly a bench player, but manager Terry Collins has put him in the starting lineup vs opposing lefty pitchers and benches Curtis Granderson or Lucas Duda to get him in […]

Mets Remain Confident They’ll Acquire Lefty Reliever In Coming Week

After Saturday’s 10-2 win, the Mets re-assigned reliever Scott Rice to minor league camp. The move now leaves just Dario Alvarez and Sean Gilmartin as the only lefthanded relievers in big league camp. Adam Rubin wrote in his briefing this morning that the Mets’ left-handed relief answer may very well come from outside the organization in the next […]
