The ’62 Mets Were NOT The Worst Team Ever

While we like to think that the 1962 Mets were the worst team in MLB history (a badge of honor we wear proudly) – they actually were not the worst team. They weren’t even close to being the worst team. Yes, they lost a modern era record 120 games… but there were four other teams […]

MMO Players of the Week: Murphy, Granderson, Colon, Oh My!

It’s been one of those wacky high and low weeks for the Mets yet again, showing that while the future looks bright, the present is rather bleak. It always seems as if each factor– offense, defense and pitching– seem to work independently. One day the offense will explode… but the defense will falter. The next day […]

Murphy’s Status is a Harbinger of Things to Come

The next few weeks leading up to the July 31st trade deadline will be quite telling about the future direction of the Mets and how they see themselves in 2015 and beyond. Most importantly, will Daniel Murphy stay or will he go?

I remember a few years back when I was helping coach my kid’s little league team, every now and then we’d run into an opposing pitcher who couldn’t find the strike zone. After he’d walk a couple of runs in the kids would start taking hacks at anything because they grew tired of just walking, […]
