Francesa Says Mets Are Asleep At The Plate, Then Falls Asleep On The Air

An article by posted on September 16, 2012 0 Comments

The last few times a post appeared on MMO about Mike Francesa, it was about him ripping the Mets front office, or the team, or the owners. Less than two weeks ago, Francesa called the Mets offense pathetic. He said the Mets’ offense looked like they were asleep. He even went as far as accusing […]

MMO Fan Shot: Patience is a Virtue? Not In Flushing It’s Not…

We have all heard the phrase good things come to those that wait, but the phrase really only works if you seem to have a plan for the future that you intend to wait for. Patience works if you have a plan. But I see no plan at work with this organization. Many have tried […]

MMO Flashback: Jerry Koosman – A Big Game Pitcher You Could Always Count On

Throughout our history, we’ve had our fair share of great pitchers. The names Seaver, Gooden and Santana quickly come to mind. However, if there was one game that your life depended on, if you needed a big win, Jerry Koosman should be listed first. The best lefty in team history, Koosman was always capable of […]

MMO Mailbag: Who Is The Mets Most Valuable Trade Chip?

I had the following question emailed to me yesterday, but there was no name attached, so we’ll call him Anonymous. If Jordany Valdespin is part of the future then why was he sent back to Buffalo? The Mets have no idea right now what the outfield of the future looks like. They’ve spent this season […]

Updated Post 5:00 PM The Mets demoted right-hander Collin McHugh to Triple-A Buffalo despite a stellar debut on Thursday in which he tossed seven scoreless innings and allowed just two hits and a walk while fanning nine.

MMO Fan Shot: We’re In The Same Deplorable State As In 1979

After a disappointing 1973 World Series loss to the Oakland A’s, despite holding a three games to two lead with two games to play, the 70′s New York Mets quickly fell from grace in the National League East. Back then the East was filled with good strong clubs like the Phillies Pirates, Cardinals, and the […]

MMO Fan Shot: Two Solutions to the Mets Catching Problems
