Celebrating Shea?

On April 18th during a home series versus the Braves, the Mets will honor Shea by reducing tickets to 1969 era prices. For $3.50 you can get a ticket in the promenade outfield and for $19.64 you can plop your fanny into a baseline box seat!  $3.50 is about what you might expect to pay for […]

Are the Mets Playing to Win or Playing Not to Lose

After Gary Carter got a hit with two outs in the bottom of the 10th in Game Six, he turned to 1B coach Bill Robinson and said, “There’s no way I was making the last ******* out.” Moments later, pinch hitter Kevin Mitchell, void of his cup, got a base hit. He turned to 1B coach […]

Enjoy Final Days of the Terry Collins Leadoff Experiment

One of the things you have to love about baseball, and it’s something I’ve grown to appreciate as I’ve gotten older, is how often the game will reverse what was essentially a bad decision to begin with. While an imperfect game at its heart, baseball has this beautiful course-correcting nature about it, and given enough […]

Mets Can Send Lannan To Minors Without His Consent

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, before John Lannan was added to the Opening Day roster, the Mets had the southpaw sign an “advance consent” waiver. That means Lannan pre-authorized the Mets to send him to the minors at any point during the first 45 days of the season — which also would negate […]

MMO Game Recap: Mets 6, Reds 3

Yesterday Duda. Today Ike. Who said the Mets can’t rotate first basemen with success?

This game took on many different storylines as the innings progressed. First, it was a […]

Why Did Wheeler Throw 114 Pitches In First Start?

I’ve received two emails this morning asking me why Zack Wheeler was allowed to throw 114 pitches in Thursday’s 8-2 loss to the Washington Nationals – one short of his career high. I couldn’t really tell you the exact reason why, but if I were to venture a guess I’d say it was because Terry […]

Scouts Can’t Recall Seeing A Team So “Lifeless” This Early In Season

Kevin Kernan of the New York Post writes… Once again Mets bats could not make solid contact, the bullpen was atrocious, and the defense was dreadful as the Mets were swept away by the Nationals, 8-2, Thursday at Citi Field before an announced crowd of 20,561, but was more like 6,000. Two scouts who watched […]

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 […]

Collins Whiffed In Yesterday’s Bullpen Mismanagement

After watching mostly every game that Terry Collins has managed with the Mets, it has become more and more apparent that Collins is truly lacking good decision-making skills in regards to the bullpen. On Opening day the Mets are cruising. Up 4-2 in the 7th after putting up four runs against Stephen Strasburg. Dillon Gee pitched […]
