Rich asks… What do you think the effect will be on our prospects moving from Buffalo to Las Vegas? I read that the climate could be bad for our pitchers and I’m concerned about Zack Wheeler. I know that you talk to these players a lot and was wondering what you felt about this move? […]

The last few times a post appeared on MMO about Mike Francesa, it was about him ripping the Mets front office, or the team, or the owners. Less than two weeks ago, Francesa called the Mets offense pathetic. He said the Mets’ offense looked like they were asleep. He even went as far as accusing […]

Mets Offense Fails To Back Up Dickey In 5-3 Loss

The Mets (65-77) lost to the Nationals (88-54) by the score of 5-3 on Tuesday evening at Citi Field. I was pretty disappointed tonight. It was just a bad display of Mets baseball. The post-game media did not make it any better. Today is September 11th, 2012. 11 years since a horrible tragedy – and on […]

One night after beating the Pawtucket Red Sox in a squeaker at Fenway Park, the Buffalo offense struggled once again, losing 4-1.

Offense, Not Bullpen, To Blame For Mets Second Half Swoon

The idea has been beaten to death: The Mets bullpen is the worst in baseball and has been the major reason for the team’s skid to open the second half. But looking a little deeper, it may not totally be the bullpen’s fault. In fact, the pen, mainly Jon Rauch, Josh Edgin and even Manny […]

Daniel Murphy’s Days Are Numbered

As the Mets’ roster has evolved throughout the course of this season, it appears that things may fall into place a bit faster that most fans had originally envisioned.  The farm system, originally believed to be devoid of any significant major league caliber talent only one year ago, has produced enough replacements to keep the […]

What Is Wrong With The Mets?

An article by posted on June 18, 2012 0 Comments

Coming off of a sweep at the hands of the NL Central leading Cincinnati Reds, the Mets should probably consider themselves lucky.  Why you ask?  Well, just as the Mets had done when sweeping the Tampa Bay Rays only a few days earlier, their crosstown rival Yankees did the Mets a favor in their sweep […]

MMO Fan Shot: Should the Mets trade for Alfonso Soriano?

Not too long ago, the answer to that question would be easy. A resounding “NO!”. Too much money, too old, bad attitude, lousy fielder and he is a strikeout waiting to happen. Physical prowess be damned, he just has too much baggage. Then again, not too long ago, I would have scoffed at the idea […]

A Yankee Tex Message Dooms Gee In Mets 4-2 Loss In The Bronx

An article by posted on June 9, 2012 0 Comments

The Mets had their opportunities to do some damage tonight, but instead they fell to the Yankees 4-2 for their sixth loss in their last seven games. Dillon Gee took to the hill and pitched surprisingly well. Sure, he got himself into some jams, but I liked the way he weaved in and out of trouble and […]
