Mets Struggles Continue at Citi Field

In last nights win against the Nationals some very interesting stats came up during the game. The first being that in the last 18 games, Travis d’Arnaud has only struck out five times with two of those strikeouts coming last night.

Featured Post: The Wilmer Flores Experiment

At just 23 years old, it’s hard to imagine giving up on a highly regarded prospect. Still, I believe the time has come for the Mets to move on from Wilmer Flores. Signed at the ripe old age of 16, Flores has progressed slowly through the Mets farm system, racking up almost 3,000 minor league […]

Gavin Cecchini Is Doing Better Than You Think

A year and a half ago, my first article after joining MMO was about shortstop Gavin Cecchini, saying that he wasn’t as bad as people say, I wasn’t wrong, but it didn’t exactly show until this season. Cecchini wasn’t really a player that jumped off the page when he was selected, especially as a first […]

Daniel Murphy: Forget #TeamMurph, It’s Time For #SignMurph

It’s hard to believe that Daniel Murphy, the position-less utility man that broke through with the Mets in 2008 has become the toast of his position, especially in the National League. After a rough start in the outfield, Murphy was moved around the infield and finally settled in at second. Despite two horrible leg injuries […]

MMO Fan Shot: Keep Waving Those Towels

An MMO Fan Shot by Matt Szatkowski Tough. When describing the Mets, over the past 7 years, this adjective has hardly been used. As the infamous curveball buckled Carlos Beltran’s knees, it also seemed to take down the team’s mental fortitude. The 2007 season would bring more frustration ending in an epic collapse, and there […]

John Lannan Open To Bullpen Role

On Monday, the Mets included reliever Josh Edgin among their first wave of cuts and reassigned him to minor league camp. Edgin was not happy with the decision according to several beat reporters, however his reduced velocity has been a big concern and most likely factored into the Mets’ decision. That leaves John Lannan as the lone contender for […]

There has always been a perceived tension between pro-analytics baseball fans and anti-analytics fans. The battle is already over and done with in front offices, as both have been able to coexist, but there are still fans who disagree.
