MMO Players Of The Week: A Newbie, A Rookie And A Harvey

Ahhh, what a week! Taking 3 out of 5 in Atlanta AND 2 out of 3 in Philly is a huge breath of fresh air for this slumping ballclub (and maybe another sign of the decline of western civilization!).  Even though they stumbled out of the blocks at the start of the week, not giving […]

MMO Player Of The Week: Oh Captain, My Captain

David Wright, 3B MMO Player of the Week! Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, the Mets go ahead and prove us wrong. Although it’s a long shot to say that anybody was expecting to win a series against the best team in baseball (and the way this team was playing, against the Cubs), […]

Matt Harvey Has Become The New Johan Santana

Matt Harvey has become the new Johan Santana of the Mets, and that is not in reference to his skills or his emergence into the staff’s ace. Harvey has been lights out all season long, and should have at least ten wins under his belt. However despite his 2.04 ERA, Matt Harvey sits at 5-1 […]

Broadcasting Games For A Loser Presents Certain Challenges

In an article that was highly critical of the New York Mets, Bob Raissman of the Daily News pondered how challenging it must be for SNY to broadcast Mets games and still keep the viewers from tuning out. With no end to the Mets’ ineptitude and misery in sight, their broadcasters are the only entertaining […]

David Wright: He’s As Cold As Ice

I just wanted to add some new comments David Wright made to Newsday regarding his recent slump that has seen him go 10-for-his-last-49 at the plate with just one home run and two RBI, dropping his average to .277 for the season. “I’m maybe trying to do a little too much and trying to make […]

Offensively, 2005-2008 Seasons Are Starting To Look Like The Good Old Days

The Mets have just two legitimate major league hitters in their lineup; David Wright and Daniel Murphy. When the two of them are hot and the Mets get a good pitching performance, the odds are pretty good that they will gut out a win and perhaps even reel off a five game winning streak. But […]

It’s Not The Approach That’s The Mets’ Problem, It’s The Execution

Early in the spring we did a post mortem of the 2012 Met 2nd half in an attempt to discover the ugly specifics of last year’s second half swoon. What we found was interesting in that the culprit was not the offensive approach per se, but rather the downward spiral was precipitated by some hideous […]

Featured Post: Keep Daniel Murphy In The Leadoff Spot

It doesn’t matter that Daniel Murphy hit the game-winning homer Sunday afternoon, or that he’s the Mets’ hottest hitter, he should be in the leadoff spot going forward for the Mets. Because of Murphy’s high on-base percentage, batting him leadoff is something I have advocated, and I’m glad Terry Collins was thinking outside the box enough to make the […]
