Here Comes The Grandy Man!

Don’t look now ladies and gentleman, but Curtis Granderson is on a major tear, and better than that, he’s in the midst of a desperately needed power surge. I’m shocked at how widely ignored Granderson’s recent play is in the Mets universe, but maybe this post will spur others on. Granderson hit his second leadoff […]

Mets Minor League Starting Pitching Leaders

Here’s a look at the Mets minor league starting pitching leaders which features strong showings from Steven Matz, Michael Fulmer, Robert Whalen, and Casey Meisner who all pitched this weekend.

DeGrom Does It All, Delivers Big-Time Performance

It was so exciting to watch the Mets demolish the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 14-1 on Saturday night. Last night’s performance was everything that Friday’s performance was not. Great starting pitching, effective relief, crisp defense, and of course an offensive explosion that was a sight for sore eyes. I think we all needed […]

Collins Makes History Batting His Top HR Hitter Ninth

Ronald Blum of the Associated Press reports that when Terry Collins made the decision to bat Wilmer Flores ninth in the batting order on Saturday versus the Milwaukee Brewers, he did something that hasn’t been done in nearly half a century. For the first time since April 30, 1967, the Mets were batting their top home-run […]

MMO Special Feature: Mets Have Lost Third Most Days To DL

I decided to do a little research yesterday after learning Dilson Herrera was heading to the DL. Not to make any excuses because bad baseball is bad baseball anyway you slice it, and excuses are for losers, but… The number of players the Mets have lost to the major league disabled list this season is […]

The Baseball Maverick May Want To Consider Reviving Shortstop Next

Nobody wanted to see Wilmer Flores succeed at shortstop more than I did. I spent the majority of this offseason urging whoever would listen that we needed to see if Flores could work at shortstop before completely abandoning the idea. If it worked, the payoff would have been huge. Unfortunately, as the season nears the […]

MMO Game Thread: Brewers vs Mets, 7:10 PM

The New York Mets (20-15) return to Citi Field on Friday after a disappointing four-game sweep in Chicago at the hands of the Cubs. They will host the Milwaukee Brewers (12-23), who own the worst record in baseball. Bartolo Colon (6-1, 3.30) will try to become the majors’ first seven-game winner and he’ll be opposed […]
