Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Matt Kemp, who finished runner-up to Ryan Braun in voting for the 2011 National League Most Valuable Player award, thinks the suspended Milwaukee Brewers slugger should be stripped of the honor. Braun finished with 388 points and 20 first-place votes, to 332 and 10 for Kemp. Major League Baseball attempted to suspend Braun following a positive test that October for elevated testosterone, but the penalty was overturned by an arbitrator who […]
I find it impossible to read an article or a forum about Carlos Beltran without there being some mention of “the curveball” or Adam Wainwright. That of course refers to Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS where, with the bases loaded and the winning run on first base with two outs in the ninth, Beltran stared a curveball from Adam Wainwright all the way into the glove of Yadier Molina, thus ending the series. I […]
The top of the food chain on the New York Mets have been out in full force the past 4-5 days with one clear and concise message, “We have plenty of money to spend, and we’re gonna spend it… maybe.” In a series of four separate broadcast interviews and two print interviews, Fred and Jeff Wilpon have been telling the world: Financial problems? What financial problems? Both Mets owners have been making the rounds on […]
When a team is chosen to host the MLB All-Star Game, it means not only the greatest baseball has to offer converging on a specific location, but the celebration of both the host city and team. In the past week we witnessed the All-Star Game in Flushing for the first time since 1964, and Major League Baseball, the Mets, and the City of New York did a fantastic job of putting it all together. Citi Field […]
According to ESPN.com and Major League Baseball, the Mets have two of the five most popular jerseys purchased this season. Probably to nobody’s surprise, Matt Harvey finds himself #5 on this list, but quite frankly to my surprise, David Wright is ranked #4 on the list! Jersey sales are a funny thing. Often times when a player changes teams you’ll note a spike in jersey sales, but this year’s doesn’t really represent anything like that. […]
Marlon Byrd checks in with MMO to talk about his experience playing for the Mets, how he’s bounced back from his 50-game PEDs suspension, his time in the Mexican League, if he thinks he’ll be traded and how to carry the momentum into the second half of the season. MMO: David mentioned before yesterday’s game that it’s been great having you on this team for your presence on and off the field, especially for the […]
With the potential for suspensions to be brought down on superstars like Alex Rodriguez, and Ryan Braun as well as several other prominent players, I am reminded of the double standard that exists in today’s world when it comes to sports. The steroid era changed everything. When it all began to unravel, the media lead the public down a path of deciding that these crimes against the sport should leave fans outraged and make us […]
The All Star voting is now over and all Met fans can do now is wait with baited breath to see if David Wright maintained his lead over Pablo Sandoval for the privilege to start at third base in the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field. In an official release by MLB, the voting for the National League’s starting third baseman was called the closest and tightest battle on this year’s ballot. With all […]
With the recent developments of the Miami-based Biogenesis clinic that is at the core of a performance-enhancing drug scandal, the baseball world is abuzz over the possibility that some of the game’s most productive players potentially receiving severe penalties including 100-game suspensions. Clinic-founder Tony Bosch is reportedly in Major League Baseball’s corner now, and the league is hoping to have the evidence they will need to take a stand against those who allegedly purchased and used […]
