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.

Mejia Shows Some Much Needed Sizzle, Energy and Emotion

Jenrry Mejia showed some guile toughing it out to give the Mets a five inning effort that might have had an entirely different complexion if it weren’t for two dead-red pitches that left fielder Justin Upton rocketed for two home runs. That second homerun reportedly traveled 477 feet before landing in the back of the upper […]

The Clock Is Ticking On Sandy Alderson’s Plan For The Mets

We keep hearing the word “plan” tossed around this winter. Nobody knows what the plan is, as it seems to change from day-to-day and week-to-week. As legendary hockey coach Herb Brooks would say, this Mets off-season has looked a lot like “two monkeys trying to hump a football.” The only “plan,” as I see it, […]

Featured Post: Are We Giving Up Too Quickly On Ike Davis?

Everybody loves a home run slugger. There’s nothing quite like the excitement of watching batters with pop in their bats blast the ball out of the park whenever they step to the plate. Yet, in the post steroid baseball era, consistent home run sluggers, guys that can be counted on to hit thirty or more home runs year […]

Marlon Byrd vs Justin Upton

Michael G. Baron of SNY posted this info-graphic on Twitter after the game last night. Seeing his numbers jump out like that next to Justin Upton is mind boggling to say the least… Upton is owed $9.75M for 2013 by the Braves, and will earn an additional $14.25M next season and $14.5M in 2015. Meanwhile, Byrd is being […]

Would Andre Ethier Be A Good Fit For Mets?

It’s become very apparent that the Mets have made little progress in fixing a glaring need in the outfield that prompted GM Sandy Alderson to famously say, “Outfield? What outfield” last November.
