MMO Morning Grind: What To Do With Q?

Good morning, Mets fans! Another crazy game last night. Why do the Mets always do this to us? I know I’m not the only one who actually expected the unthinkable to happen… but once Jose Valverde threw ball 3 to Erick Aybar and the guys in the SNY truck cut to Raul Ibañez looming on deck, […]

MMO Game Recap: Braves 4, Mets 3

The Mets are in the business of making opposing pitchers look like stars these days. In his first Braves start, Ervin Santana was Maddux-like in efficiency going through the Mets lineup in eight innings on only 88 pitches. Zack Wheeler returned to his debut city and wasn’t quite as sharp as he was last July. […]

MMO Morning Grind: The Grind Is Back!

Good morning, Mets fans… I’m excited to announce that I have been tasked with bringing the “MMO Morning Grind”— which Joe D used to run a couple years ago— back from the dead. The Morning Grind is a daily feature where I’ll talk about something that stood out to me in the previous night’s game, the […]

Slide Ruben, Slide!

What the heck happened last night during this play at home in the fifth inning that saw Ruben Tejada waltz in without so much as a hit or a slide? Putting aside the fact that Tim Teufel should have never waved Tejada home, what the hell was Tejada thinking? Apparently he wasn’t thinking at all […]

Did We Do Enough To Improve The Offense?

The moving trucks are leaving Florida. The hopes of a last second deal have faded. In just a matter of days, our beloved Mets, with a near certain 25 man-roster, will take the field in Queens and the 2014 MLB season will commence. So the question becomes, is this team as we know it, improved […]

Mets Not Expected To Make Moves Prior To Opening Day

Adam Rubin of ESPN NY reports that a team insider indicated that the Mets are not expected to make any external additions before Opening Day, big or small. Rubin adds that the source said something not currently foreseeable would have to develop quickly for a trade to materialize. Well that will just mean is the Mets […]

Featured Post: The Reality (or lack thereof) of 90 Wins

Let me first go on the record to say that I would much rather have Mets GM Sandy Alderson set an expectation of 90 wins, as opposed to, say, 90 losses. For teams that look to overachieve, the first step is believing you are better than you actually are. And when it was first reported, […]

Collins, Tejada and the Mess at Shortstop

There is a certain segment of the fanbase that will never give Terry Collins the benefit of the doubt. He certainly does not help himself when he does things like announcing to the media that Eric Young Jr. is his likely candidate for the lead-off spot, presumably to the detriment of fan-favorite Juan Lagares. But […]

Where did Ruben Tejada go wrong?

Where did Ruben Tejada go wrong?

There was a brief time in 2012, as Mets fans tried to recover from the loss of Jose Reyes, that Ruben Tejada seemed to have promise. With his recent struggles, and never-ending love/hate relationship projected upon him by Mets management, it is hard to remember those days. It makes me wonder: Where did Ruben Tejada […]
