Who’s Ready For Some More Matt Harvey!

I really loved this post by Bob Klapisch of The Record this morning on Mets rookie pitching phenom Matt Harvey. Harvey isn’t just some overhyped prospect being pimped by desperate ownership. To the contrary: Rival executives believe the 23-year-old right-hander is the most gifted rookie pitcher the Mets have produced since Doc Gooden. Granted, that’s […]

With Torreabla And Shoppach Available, Should Mets Take A Flier?

Kelly Shoppach would be a great addition to the Mets as he bats right handed with some power, which is something we could really use from our backstops. His best season came with Cleveland where he hit 21 home runs back in 2008. After he left the Indians he struggled for a few seasons with […]

This Day In Mets History: Hodges Pulls Cleon Jones For Not Hustling

Every team’s evolution from doormat to contender has that defining moment when somebody grabs the team by the scruff of the neck and shakes it awake. That moment for the 1969 Mets came on this date when manager Gil Hodges walked out of the dugout and strolled out to left field, where he removed Cleon […]

Don’t Expect A 1973 Finish, With This Front Office

The season is three months and 27 days old as of today. The Mets have spent only ten of those days with a losing record and by that I mean sub .500. And in that regard today the Mets are only a whopping three games under .500. In 1973, after 99 games the Mets were 44-55, eleven […]

MMO Fan Shot: What Will the Mets Do With R.A. Dickey?

R.A. Dickey has been a cornerstone of the New York Mets’ early success during the 2012 season. While he had pitched well in the previous two seasons, nobody was expecting a sub-3.00 ERA, thirteen wins and an All-Star appearance. His success has presented the Mets with a dilemma, and the team must decide whether to […]

Second Half Failure Will Be Good For The Mets

I know what your thinking..The Mets are well on their way to making the 2012 season nothing more than an afterthought.  The fact is your probably right, and that’s exactly what needs to happen if the organization is to find its way back to the promise land sooner than later.  With the semi-successful first half, […]
