MMO Mailbag: Should Mets Be Styling and Showboating Before They’ve Won Anything?

Gregg asks.. Quick Pitching, Bat Flips, Stare Downs, Styling, Showboating?

Mapping Out the Mets Rotation to October

While Terry Collins said his mapped out plan to manage the innings of Harvey, deGrom, and Syndergaard is under lock and key, I think I’ve picked the lock.

Granted, three of their four wins this week (they went 4-2 with an off day) were against the Phillies, but wins are wins and as […]
