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 Morning Grind: And So It Begins…

Good Morning, Mets fans! Our Mets got a nice win last night. Zack Wheeler looked pretty solid, Lucas Duda was great, and Daniel Murphy turned into a Gold Glover for a night. But I have something a bit more troubling on my mind this morning, and that is the Injury Bug. Us Mets fans know […]

MMO Morning Grind: Understanding Strengths and Weaknesses

Good morning, Mets fans! Crazy game last night. Or this morning. I’m not even sure anymore. Anyway, as far as losses go, it wasn’t that bad. The Angels have a pretty imposing roster and we fought with them in a back-and-forth battle for 11 innings. What I think cost the Mets in this game, and […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Bullpen?!?!

Good morning, Mets fans! I was originally going to write about how it was nice to see our bullpen finally do a decent job last night, despite the loss. Then, I started digging through the box scores from the past few games and I realized something… The Mets’ bullpen has not given up a run […]

Efficiency From The Mets Bullpen

Despite the Mets 2-1 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Sunday, there was one bright spot worth noting, and surprisingly it came from the bullpen. After a solid start by Jon Niese who tossed 6.2 innings in his return to the mound, the Mets bullpen took over with Gonzalez Germen, Kyle Farnsworth, and Jose Valverde […]

The Mets lost 5-4 to the Blue Jays, who got the win in walk-off fashion Friday night in Montreal. Jenrry Mejia got the start for the Mets and was solid, giving up only 1 run in 4 innings. However, Mejia had to leave the game early with an injury after being struck by a ball. […]
