MMO Morning Grind: Stop Playing Around, Start Playing Flores

Good morning, Mets fans! Tough loss last night. But even though we came up short, there were a few bright spots. One of those bright spots was Wilmer Flores, who got the start at shortstop and had 3 hits. Flores was called up a couple weeks ago, but due to sickness and Terry Collins, had […]

Sandy Alderson’s disappearing act on Sunday was brilliant. The New York Mets made a miraculous comeback to avoid being swept by the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, capped off by a walk-off single by Ruben Tejada, who has been struggling for, well, all of 2013 and the first six weeks of the 2014 season. The team […]

Mets Turning Point: Tejada With Bases Loaded

Okay, it’s hard to love Ruben Tejada right now. The shortstop, entering Tuesday’s rainy 6-1 victory over Philadelphia, was sporting an all too familiar sub-Mendoza Line Batting Average. The patience with Tejada, if not completely diminished was wearing dangerously thin with seemingly everybody other than Terry Collins. But Ruben was out there again, batting eight, […]

It’s Time for Sandy to Upgrade Shortstop

After Jenrry Mejia and the bullpen turned in spectacular performances to help the Mets improve to 10-9 last night, I thought to myself, how the hell are the Mets one game above .500 given how bad their offense has been to start the season?

MMO Morning Grind: What To Do With Q?

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. […]
