Mets Remain Unlikely to Add Impact Bat or Starter Before Trade Deadline

While the Mets appear set on adding a middle reliever to bolster the relief corps, the solutions to fixing the offense and starting rotation are murky and unclear at best. It doesn’t take a baseball pundit to see that the 2016 season has not gone according to plan so far.  The rotation, lauded as a […]

Mets Need To Be Bold Again And Sign Yulieski Gourriel

The New York Mets are still evaluating free-agent third baseman Yulieski Gourriel, general manager Sandy Alderson said during a press conference on Wednesday. One of the factors that gives Alderson pause is that Gourriel would need around a month in the minors before he would be ready to contribute at the big league level. As […]

Know Your Stats: Weighted On Base Average (wOBA)

For the next few days, I will be bringing back my “Know Your Stats” series that I began a few years back to highlight some important sabermetric stats and concepts. Earlier today, we went through OPS and OPS+. Now we continue with wOBA… Perhaps the best way of describing weighted-On Base Average (wOBA) is to describe […]

Bullpen Comes Up Big As Mets Defeat Royals 2-1

The Mets (37-32) defeated the Kansas City Royals (38-32) by a score of 2-1 tonight at Citi Field. Pitching: Bartolo Colon toed the rubber for the Mets this evening, but unfortunately Big Sexy only made it through one batter as Royals’ lead-off man Whit Merrifield drilled Colon with a comebacker, forcing him to leave the […]

Measuring the Disappointment of the 2016 Mets

There have certainly been many disappointing seasons in the Mets’ 54 year history.  Some that fell below already low expectations, others in which the fresh promise of winter never materialized, and yet others in which they failed to build upon the success of previous seasons. Of course, it’s that last category that marks the 2016 […]

Conforto And Walker Both Homer In Return To Lineup

The depleted New York Mets offense found some help Thursday night as two of its best returned to the starting lineup. Both Neil Walker and Michael Conforto returned from injury and immediately had a big impact in the team’s 6-4 win over Pittsburgh. Conforto, 23, had been marred in his roughest patch as a major […]

What’s Wrong With Michael Conforto And How Should Mets Proceed

The New York Mets offense has simply been bad. When you take a look at the team stats for all Major League clubs this season, the Mets offensive ranks are mostly trending at the bottom of the pile, except for home runs. Their inability to score with runners in scoring position with less than two […]

MMO Players Of The Week: A Dark Knight Returns, A Granderson Sighting

Another tough week for the Mets came and went during Sunday June 5th to Saturday June 11th. The Mets went 3-4 during that stretch, and yet again, had trouble driving runners in with less than two outs, a startling trend that seems to be taking place more and more as the season progresses. The Mets […]

Talkin’ Mets: 2016 MLB Draft, Brew-Crew Solution and Trading Conforto

The Mets just finished a uninspiring and bizarre 10-game road trip that saw them finish at 5-5. I discuss whether Sandy Alderson needs a trade that puts the “chips to to the center of the table” in 2016. Are Ryan Braun and Jonathan Lucroy available? If so, would they be a great fit for this […]

The Mets’ Offensive Conundrum

The Mets’ Offensive Conundrum

This is not what any of us envisioned.  A crippled and one dimensional offense.  Two runs in the last 27 innings.  A lifeless sweep in a twin bill at the hands of two mediocre starting pitchers, a growing divisional deficit, and a return trip to October suddenly seeming uncertain. With almost 40% of the Mets’ […]
