MMO Fan Shot: Why Do We Act So Surprised?

An MMO Fan Shot by Dave (FalseHustle) I’m not going to do any research on the subject, but I’m confident in proclaiming that most of us around these MMO parts projected the Mets to be a 75-80 win team in 2014. Sure, there were some optimists who claimed .500 was within reach, and those blind […]

Dan Warthen – The Sacrificial Lamb?

An article by posted on August 19, 2012 0 Comments

Someone is ultimately going to have to answer for the collapse of the Mets pitching staff and poor performance of the bullpen in 2012. It won’t be Sandy Alderson.  I doubt it will be Terry Collins.

I always tell my friends who are Yankee’s fans, it’s easy to be a Yankee fan. Everything is handed to you. To be a Met fan it takes a certain rare, albeit hopeful, yet borderline delusional personality. The Yankee’s are like the older brother that grew up a Hilton to the Mets kid who grew […]

I knew I wanted to write something about the Mets’ starting rotation after reading an article in The Sporting News about the Mets being one of this off-season’s “losers,” citing the fact that they did not address the “gaping holes” in the starting pitching rotation.  Well, yeah, but we are likely going to go into […]
