MMO Morning Grind: Coming Home… for Better or Worse

Good morning, Mets fans! We managed to stay over 500 yesterday, in part because we didn’t have a game. Tonight, the Mets will be coming home to begin a nice, long, 10-game homestand. I’m especially excited for tonight’s matchup with the Braves, as I will be attending my first game of the year (although, since […]

Mets Are 5-0 When Eric Young Jr. Steals A Base

There have been a lot of complaints about Eric Young. He doesn’t get on base enough. His batting average is too low. He shouldn’t be an everyday player. He should be the 4th outfielder. Guess what?

MMO Morning Grind: The Cautionary Tale of John Buck

Good morning, Mets fans! Nice win yesterday! We’re over 500. Can we get to 90? Time will tell. Anyway, we’ve reached the point in the season where we can start to throw around terms like “good start” and “bad start” for certain players. But stats at this point in the season can still be incredibly […]

MMO Morning Grind: Appreciating Gonzalez Germen

Good morning, Mets fans! Another nice win last night. A stress-free win, for once. The only blemish on our victory was Jenrry Mejia having to leave early with a torn blister, but considering Mejia’s luck with injuries, I’ll settle for a torn blister any day of the week with that guy. Anyway, my post this […]

MMO Game Recap: Mets 9, Diamondbacks 0

There are nights when everything works, right from the start. Tuesday in Arizona was one of those nights for the Mets. Facing Met-Killer, Bronson Arroyo, and wearing number 42 on all of their jerseys in honor of Jackie Robinson, the Mets put three quick runs on the board in the top of the first inning. […]
