MMO Players of the Week: A Rookie Sensation, A Norse God, and Bartolo Colon

Ah, Mets baseball is finally upon us again. Though we had the shortest span of time between the end of the postseason and the beginning of the regular season (excluding the Royals, of course), the offseason still felt like it spanned 100 years.

Why Isn’t deGrom on the DL?

There’s no blaming the Mets for Jacob deGrom‘s right lat injury. Injuries happen. However, we yet again have to question how the Mets handle injuries and their roster. At the outset, the Mets are skipping deGrom’s start on Wednesday. He also isn’t going to throw in the bullpen for the time being. This is a very […]

When Lagares Plays, Granderson Should Sit Not Conforto

I was afraid this was going to be the case as I wrote right after the New York Mets signed Yoenis Cespedes to that three year deal with the opt-out. “Not only does the signing squash literally any substantial playing time for Alejandro De Aza, it may have just placed him squarely on the trading […]

David Wright Is Not Done Yet

Sunday night I came away with the same impression of David Wright as everyone else did. He looked done. He couldn’t catch up to the fastball. He couldn’t get anything on his throws. It’s just really hard to play baseball when you have a fork sticking out of your back – it’s worse when you have spinal […]
