MMO Mailbag: Is Sandy Alderson Baseball’s Losingest GM?

Last week I received an email asking me if it was true that Mets GM Sandy Alderson was on the verge of breaking some long held major league record for the most consecutive losing seasons by a GM. Actually, it was an accusatory email also suggesting that I’ve become a shill for the Mets and […]

Ike Davis Is Determined To Make It Back To The Mets

Poor Ike Davis…  He gets demoted to Triple-A, deservedly so, and leaves for Las Vegas without commenting on his feelings or the matter. The obviously crushed first baseman kept his head down after the game on Sunday as he emptied his locker, packed his bags and headed for the airport. SNY sent their Baseball Insider […]

Shorter Subway Series Reduces The Spotlight On Woeful Mets Season

Mike Kerwick of The Record, says it’s probably a good thing for the Mets that the Subway Series has been shortened from six games to four this season because it “brings glare” to how bad they are. This season has become a dark hour for Mets fans – darker, if possible, than any of the past four […]

Is Collins The Blame For Team’s Poor Performance, Or Is He Just The Patsy?

While all the talk lately has been about whether or not it’s time to end the Terry Collins era as manager of the Mets, how much of the blame for the team’s poor performance should be equally shared with the architect and general manager, Sandy Alderson? Joel Sherman of the New York Post, pops the […]

Time to End the Collins Era and Bring On Backman

The Terry Collins era was always going to go down as the bridge to brighter days. How else could you explain Sandy Alderson making Collins his first manager with the track record he possessed three years ago? Collins oversaw teams collapse in Houston and Anaheim, with the latter resulting in a mutiny. He was well-placed […]

Mets By The Numbers: This Post Is Not For The Squeamish

Where would this team be without Matt Harvey? Is it safe to say that as of this moment, the only proven and legit core player under the age of 30 this team has is The Dark Knight of Gotham? I like Jon Niese a lot, but is he a core player? Or just an number […]

Featured Post: The High Price Of Mediocrity

It must have been fate that I happened to be in my car at 1:00 pm yesterday. After listening to WFAN’s Mike Francesa, I see the other side to this Valdespin issue – in fact it goes beyond Valdespin. I only was in the car long enough to hear his opening monologue, but you know […]

Time For A Change

Jordany Valdespin has his flaws and it has nothing to do with his race. He could be Caucasian, African American, Pacific Islander, doesn’t matter … he’s had trouble with insubordination in virtually every stop on his way to the majors. He picked a fight with Ike Davis and Justin Turner for a prank they had […]

Meet The Press: Reactions to Spin-Gate at the Top of the Show

Now that I’ve had some time to cool off, I was wondering how the rest of the Mets blogosphere was reacting to Spin-Gate and was surprised to find little to nothing about it on MetsBlog or anywhere else for that matter. Could it be I’m just overreacting? It wouldn’t be the first time… However I […]

Collins Raises Fear Of Retaliation Against Wright Because Of Valdespin Antics

This is getting utterly ridiculous… According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, Mets Manager Terry Collins said that he could see the Pirates retaliating against Jordany Valdespin for his admiration of his ninth-inning homer on Friday night, but added that he doesn’t think Pittsburgh would go after David Wright. “I think every situation is different. I […]
