The New York Mets may be without the services of Curtis Granderson and Juan Lagares for a few days and possibly longer in the case of Lagares. Both departed Monday night’s game against the Diamondbacks with injuries. Granderson sustained contusions to the left rib cage, forearm and knee after colliding with the right-field fence in the first inning and underwent X-rays, […]

MMO Players of the Week: Lagares and Niese Cop Top Honors

This week in Mets baseball was just like any other: stagnant offense, average defense and bi-polar pitching. At the close of week two, it became apparent that more than one player was going to have to hit consistently for this team to experience constant success and reach that seemingly astronomical 90-win goal. However, despite the […]

Enjoy Final Days of the Terry Collins Leadoff Experiment

One of the things you have to love about baseball, and it’s something I’ve grown to appreciate as I’ve gotten older, is how often the game will reverse what was essentially a bad decision to begin with.

Wait, never mind. During the offseason and throughout spring training, […]

Wright and Lagares Were Two Bright Spots In An Otherwise Dim Afternoon

Despite a heart-breaking loss on Opening Day, a game that had the Mets only three outs away from victory, there were a couple of bright spots worth mentioning. While many may overreact to the team’s first loss and are focusing on another classic bullpen collapse, Eric Young striking out four times while batting leadoff, and […]

Gary, Keith and Ron: Those Voices In Our Heads

The Mets may not lead the league in many baseball categories, but they do excel in one area. The voices of the Mets SNY broadcast team; Gary Cohen, Keith Hernandez, and Ron Darling, are the cream of the crop. All three were on top of their game in Steve Serby’s Q&A in the Sunday New […]

There are three Mets I’m really pulling for this season. Sure, we have the stars in David Wright and Curtis Granderson.

How Much Does Lagares Have To Hit To Keep Starting Job?

It looks like Sandy Alderson may have inadvertently hinted that Juan Lagares will get a chance to be the everyday center fielder to begin the season when talking to reporters on Tuesday. “I think everybody would probably agree he’s our best outfielder, he’s our best center fielder,” Alderson said about Lagares. “But he’s going to […]

How Does Chris Young Fit the Mets Plan?

The Chris Young signing is what I call a Hot Stove Head-Scratcher. Try as I might to understand the move, signing Young to a contract worth more than $7 million dollars simply doesn’t make sense. My litmus test for a free agent signing involves two basic questions. First, is there a reasonable expectation the free […]
