Time For Mets Leadership To Stop Talking And Start Doing

I applaud Buster Olney of ESPN for the thorough summation of the state of the Mets and his conclusion that the inaction by Mets leadership has been inexplicable and inexcusable. Olney implored the Mets front office to be creative and try something different. “Do something. Add something. Get some help.” He points to the Washington […]

Grandy and Trout and BABIP, Oh My!

Until my drive home from AT&T Park last night, I never thought the day would come that my feelings after watching a 42-year old, 280+ pound man pitch a quality start would be, “He didn’t really pitch well tonight. We never had a chance.” Unfortunately, this is the state of the John-Mayberry-hitting-in-the-six-hole Mets. Without looking […]

DeGrom’s Frustration Boils Over

The Future Is Here, But Where’s The Bats?

During Terry Collins’ pregame press conference on Sunday, MMO’s Clayton Collier asked the Mets manager what it means now that all the young pitchers are up with the team after the promotion of Steven Matz. To which Collins responded, “It means the future is now.” “Matz is the last of the organization’s young arms. We always like […]
