There’s No “I” In Team, But There Is An “I” In Whining

An article by posted on July 4, 2010 0 Comments

Just last week my boss called me into his office and pointed out a mistake I had made. It was something stupid on my part. He gave me an FYI, we talked about it for a couple minutes and I went back to my desk. However, when I returned, I didn’t have to listen to […]

Cliff Lee…The Final Word…Really.

An article by posted on June 26, 2010 12 Comments

A few weeks ago, before the blogosphere erupted with stories about the Mets trading for either Cliff Lee or Roy Oswalt, I wrote an article here on MMO, The New Mets Ace In The Hole. Since then there have been more Cliff Lee/Roy Oswalt stories than Charlie Sheen has DUI’s. I think Michael Branda (Jessup) […]

Angel Pagan Or Carlos Beltran: A Great Problem To Have

An article by posted on June 23, 2010 0 Comments

Many Mets fans on this site, spent a great deal of time debating whether outfielder Angel Pagan was capable of playing leftfield everyday or if he was nothing more than a good fourth outfielder. We had posts that wanted him as the leftfielder so that we could go after a starting pitcher over the winter […]

Big Problem: The Mets Bullpen Still Stinks!

An article by posted on June 17, 2010 0 Comments

The only good thing about the Mets bullpen is that it has not been needed over the last two weeks.  The starting pitching and the offense have been strong enough to carry the team.  But here’s my advice to Omar Minaya:  Do something quickly about the Mets pathetic bullpen.  Otherwise it could very well turn […]

I’m a fan of history. Whether it be baseball or Mets history or the history of our nation, I love how history provides us with a template for the future. We tend to have short attention spans in this new media digital age. We tweet, surf the web and instant message while texting all at […]

As we bask in the glory of an ever so dramatic win last night, and take in the images of all that transpired during and after one of the best games of the season thus far, it feels so good to be a Mets fan. Watching how Mike Pelfrey has evolved this season has been […]

An article by posted on June 8, 2010 0 Comments

Omar Minaya became the General Manager at the end of the 2004 season.  Since then the Mets have mostly been quiet when it comes to the trade deadline.  Except for 2006, when Duaner Sanchez went for a cab ride, injured his shoulder, forcing Omar to make a trade with the Pirates for Oliver Perez (thanks […]

Mets Need To Part Ways With Oliver Perez

An article by posted on June 1, 2010 0 Comments

The Oliver Perez experiment should be over!  Saturday’s putrid performance shows that this guy’s career with the Mets is over.  Pretty soon Perez will be lucky to throw batting practice for a single A team. I understand Perez is still owed more than 20 million dollars but he’s doing nothing at all for this team. […]

When a team in any sport is struggling everyone from the general manager to the coaches/manger to the players take the blame.  In some cases like the Mets it’s true.  Omar Minaya needs to go as does Jerry Manuel and most of his coaching staff.  I know of a certain pitcher making $36 million dollars […]

Mets Beat Yankees But That’s Hardly Enough

An article by posted on May 24, 2010 0 Comments

So many indelible moments in life seem to occur in slow motion, sometimes both the good and bad moments. The 2010 Mets season for me has been just that, a slow motion Shakespearean tragedy. Perhaps to some a typically bad CW network soap opera. It’s your choice. The Mets are in my opinion, just about beyond […]
