Brandon Nimmo Is Thrilled About His Sizzling Hot Start

Brandon Nimmo’s high school in Cheyenne, Wyoming didn’t even have a varsity baseball team. The Mets’ top prospect played American Legion baseball and had to concentrate on performing at amateur showcases across the country in the hopes of being taken in the MLB draft. Nimmo did end up being taken in the 1st round of […]

MMO Morning Grind: Where Have You Gone, Jeurys Familia?

Good morning, Mets fans! Nobody has seen or heard from Jeurys Familia in ages. They say that if you listen hard, on certain nights when the moon is full, you can still hear him howling at the night sky. But I’m not buying it. But seriously, where is Familia? After taking the loss on Opening […]

MMO Morning Grind: Wild Wind Sparks Wild Win, Things Are Looking Up

Good Morning, Mets fans! Great win last night. The Mets, despite having had one of the league’s toughest schedules so far, are over 500 and are keeping pace with the fastest starters in the National League. But they haven’t been hitting lately. The Mets rank poorly in nearly every offensive category (except for strikeouts!). So […]

Playing Eric Young Everyday Hasn’t Improved His Performance

Eric Young Jr. is not an ideal leadoff hitter. He is the best candidate on the New York Mets, but that is not saying much. Once Juan Lagares returns, Young Jr. should not even be in the conversation as an everyday player. Since Young Jr. made his MLB debut in 2009, he only exceeded 100 […]

It’s Time for Sandy to Upgrade Shortstop

After Jenrry Mejia and the bullpen turned in spectacular performances to help the Mets improve to 10-9 last night, I thought to myself, how the hell are the Mets one game above .500 given how bad their offense has been to start the season? It’s even more mind-boggling when you consider the caliber of teams […]

What you should know: Jenrry Mejia looked sharp right out of the […]

MMO Players of the Week: Three Vets For Military Monday

Nothing is very new about the New York Mets… it has been another up and down week yet again. From pummeling the Diamondbacks to nearly getting swept by the Braves, the mystery of how the Mets go from performing like All-Stars on the road to playing like a little league team at home will likely remain unsolved […]

MMO Morning Grind: More Replay!

Good Morning, Mets fans! What a frustrating loss last night. At least we fought hard. Anyway, the moment from the game that’s weighing most on my mind this morning is, of course, “The Shoe Play”. With 2 out and 2 on, Freddie Freeman hit a ball “straight into the ground” which seemingly ricocheted off of […]

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 […]
