Joe Torre hoped it would happen, but he never dared think it would. The former New York Mets player and manager, who later carved his legacy as four-time World Series manager of the Yankees, was selected to the Hall of Fame today by the veteran’s committee. The announcement was made at the Walt Disney Swan resort hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Torre will go in with fellow managers Tony La Russa and Bobby Cox. All three […]
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, veteran starter Roy Halladay has announced his retirement. He will sign a one-day contract with Toronto, so he can retire as a Blue Jay. Halladay made only 13 starts for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2013 and underwent shoulder surgery in May to repair a torn labrum and repair a rotator cuff in his right shoulder. The 36-year old two-time Cy Young Award winner had a brilliant career that included eight All-Star […]
Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports dished on Chris Young to Robert Brender who’s down in Orlando covering the Winter Meetings. Rob asked Rosenthal about the possibility of the Mets adding another outfielder this week. “Certainly that would be a possibility. I would be interested in seeing how Chris Young plays next year. Now, he isn’t a great player. Nobody should confuse him with a great player. But, he had to accept a part-time role for […]
We’ve been waiting all winter for our team to do something. Yesterday, our inactive front office became active by signing Curtis Granderson for 4 years/$60 million. But is the waiting over? Will this be our only major move or will it be the first of several? Is this the first baby step in bringing a winner back to Flushing or purely window-dressing? I’ve been a vocal outspoken critic of Sandy Alderson since his arrival. However, when […]
With the speculation that Curtis Granderson is coming to Queens and the signing of Chris Young, I started to consider what the lineup may look like if this were to come to fruition… Batting 3 through 6 in the order: David Wright – Righty Curtis Granderson – Lefty Chris Young – Righty Ike Davis – Lefty I decided to look up the top 10 strikeout seasons in the history of the franchise… 1 – David Wright - […]
Jeremy Hefner being non-tendered doesn’t sit too well with me. It has nothing to do with performance. It’s the human element. I know it’s hard to feel bad for someone who had a half-million dollar a year salary, but of the five players that were non-tendered by the team on Monday, Jeremy’s cut is the one that stings the most. Justin Turner, Scott Atchison, and Omar Quintanilla were arbitration eligible and are of sound mind and […]
I did an interview yesterday for a grad student who was doing a thesis on sports blogging, social media and the dichotomy between fans today and twenty years ago. It ended up being an opportunity where I actually learned more about myself, our community at MMO and social media as I knew it to be. I found myself giving responses that I didn’t expect and I guess that’s the beauty of not knowing the questions […]
With the Winter Meetings approaching, the time is now for the Mets to make a big splash. While building through the system is vital to the organization, completely ignoring the Mets present day needs is unacceptable. The Mets cannot stand pat again and let their fans suffer through another painful season. Mets fans are the best fans and baseball, and we deserve better than that. One free agent who instantly improves the Mets is outfielder […]
In the past month, we’ve had over 200 new IP Addresses comment on MMO for the very first time. Most of the regulars here I’m sure have see the great influx of new Mets fans who have joined our great community and I’m glad to see how many of you have welcomed them. This past weekend, we’ve been hit with 15-20 emails from new readers expressing their frustration with registering to comment on MMO. I […]
