We’ve been waiting all winter for our team to do something. Yesterday, our inactive front office became active by signing Curtis Granderson for 4 years/$60 million. But is the waiting over? Will this be our only major move or will it be the first of several? Is this the first baby step in bringing a winner back to Flushing or purely window-dressing? I’ve been a vocal outspoken critic of Sandy Alderson since his arrival. However, when […]
To my dearest fellow Mets fans. I have been a Mets fan my entire life. I have bled blue and orange for that team in Queens since the day I was born. I am not what one would call a “fair weather fan”, I have stayed to the very last out of 14-2 butt whoopings on the road because I believe in my team (or I’m delusional, which ever suits the situation). I do not […]
I previously posed the question if a player can develop plate discipline at the minor league level to lay off bad pitches, does that translate into major league success? Let’s do a little rewind to see how a 12% walk rate translated over time, shall we? Over the course of 502 plate appearances, a 12% walk rate (the minimum number of appearances needed to qualify for a MLB batting title) would yield 60 walks. 550 […]
Happy Thanksgiving, Mets Fans. Do we have anything to be thankful for in 2013? Is that even possible? On this day of thanks, let’s look at the positives this year and give thanks for these few special moments out of the multitude of bad ones. David Wright is currently in his prime. He put up some outstanding numbers yet again, but with another weak lineup. If this front office can put a few bats around […]
Brandon Phillips A Met? Don’t Bet On It… Why is it that every quality player who becomes available or is on the block is suddenly looked at as the perfect fit for the Mets? Is it because it’s in our nature as Met fans to be dreamers like John Lennon? Let me put a few MMO Mailbag pieces to rest in this one post. These questions were submitted to us this weekend and I’m going […]
A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian McCann and Carlos Beltran. I read the names and had to laugh. The dichotomy between these two clubs in New […]
This week in Mets baseball was the last week of Mets baseball, and if you were on the “lose for the protected pick” train, you got your wish. The Mets made the last week of the 2013 season a pretty fun one, taking 2/3 from the Reds and spoiling all of their hopes for a division title. Then, to secure that draft pick!, they lost 3/4 to the Brewers, with their only win coming on […]
Very rarely is a team graced with a player of the stature and talent of Michael Joseph Piazza. Subsequently, very rarely does a fanbase and a city mutually bond with a player like Michael Joseph Piazza. Today as Piazza was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame, fans were able to share yet another special moment with the greatest offensive catcher of all time. “I look back now, in retrospect, and realize it was just […]
There will be a twinge of sadness in the air for the New York Mets this afternoon at Citi Field, as the final day of the season means dreams and hopes long forgotten. It means the expectations of spring have died, that there is no more time, that precious little – if anything – can be salvaged, and soon the plush green of the outfield will be covered by bitter snow. Once again, the goal […]
