Featured Post: Keith Hernandez Needs To Lay Off Duda’s Approach

Ever since Lucas Duda burst into our consciousness in 2010, nobody has been satisfied with his plate approach. Too many strikeouts and not enough walks, I frequently wrote.

Why Kirk Nieuwenhuis Should Absolutely Positively NOT Bat Leadoff

Kirk Nieuwenhuis came up last season after CF Andres Torres went down. Billed as an athletic and toolsy outfielder with some promise, Nieuwenhuis hit the ground running raking to the tune of a .325 batting average in March and April.

MMO Fan Shot: Patience is a Virtue? Not In Flushing It’s Not…

We have all heard the phrase good things come to those that wait, but the phrase really only works if you seem to have a plan for the future that you intend to wait for. Patience works if you have a plan. But I see no plan at work with this organization. Many have tried […]
