MMO Fan Shot: My Dream Came True

An MMO Fan Shot by By Matt Stephens I’d like to think that by this point my 2014 post on Yoenis Cespedes has become somewhat famous as far as the site is concerned. For those that don’t know, I’ll explain briefly: In October of 2014, Joe D. posted a fan shot in which I plead […]

Bartolo Colon: Mets’ Best Reliever Not Named Familia

I loved this characterization Mike Puma of the New York Post made about Bartolo Colon last night. “The 42-year-old right-hander quickly has become the Mets’ most reliable reliever not named Jeurys Familia this postseason.” One highlight that went overlooked during the loss to the Dodgers on Tuesday night, was that Colon needed just 26 pitches to […]

Bad Umpiring And Big Payouts Make For a Dangerous Mix On the Field

It took MLB years of wrangling to institute a policy for home plate collisions after Buster Posey was sidelined by a particularly brutal one in May of 2011. The rule states: A runner may not run out of a direct line to the plate in order to initiate contact with the catcher, or any player, […]

Collins: Granderson Was One Of Our Biggest Pieces This Season

You could make the claim that Yoenis Cespedes has been the biggest key to the Mets success in 2015, even if he only joined the team more than halfway through the season. Or perhaps you could even say that Jacob deGrom has been the most important piece to the puzzle for a team that just […]
