So Met Nation after another defeat, this time, at the hands of Josh Johnson and the Marlins, questions arise about different lineup concepts to get the offense rolling. Jerry Manuel, not the quickest hook to ever manage, must realize now that his “idea” of moving Jose Reyes to the three spot in the batting order […]

So I sat down with the intention of writing an article about Jose Reyes.  I wanted to discuss how high my expectations where of him and how he never became the player everyone expected him too and probably never will. I looked at some statistical analysis and I have to say….I was a bit surprised.  Jose […]

Clutch or Not, This Team Can Fight

One of the positive things that I have been seeing from this team in the past few weeks is the way they seem to always fight. At times a hit with a runner on base seems to be too tall of an order and it can be very frustrating for a fan. However, when at […]

Those of you who know me and follow my writing know that I have a unique nickname for Jose Reyes.  It’s “Junior”.  “Why Junior?”, you ask?  His initials are JR, which is the abbreviation for junior.  And right now, it couldn’t be more appropriate.

Talk about a bummer of a road trip… The only good part of it was yesterday’s get-away day. I’m totally excited about the Mets coming home to begin weekend series against the San Francisco Giants, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have some inhibitions about Mike Pelfrey and Johan Santana based on […]

Although I often cringe at the MMO posts that are almost an hour-by-hour barometer of the current state of the Mets (lose a few in a row, we’re terrible/win a few in a row, we’re pennant contenders), I couldn’t resist starting to write this as Johan Santana dejectedly trudged off the mound after the lambasting […]
