Kevin Plawecki’s Chance to Shine

There are a number of ways to analyze Travis d’Arnaud‘s shoulder problems. It can be used as another example of the narrative that he’s injury prone. It could be used to explain his poor start at the plate. It could be used to explain why the Reds were five-for-five in stolen base attempts on Monday. It can […]

MMO Fan Shot: A New York Mets Time Warp

An MMO Fan Shot by by Laura (mookie4ever) I’ve always been fascinated with the science fiction concept of time travel, and its potential effect on the present if you went back in time and changed anything.

MMO Exclusive: Catching Up With Darryl Strawberry

  Baseball players tend to disappear after retirement. Without the spotlight of national media, or admiration of thousands of fans, they fade back into mainstream society. They leave only memories, and their absence from the game makes it easy to forget that these guys we watched on TV are still real people. My mission is […]

Jump Starting the Mets Offense and Beating the Shift

Through eight games this season, the New York Mets offense has been less than inspiring, ranking dead last in the NL in hits, runs scored, Avg, OBP, OPS, and extra base hits. While this is just a small sample size and nothing to get overly concerned about yet, it does give us a not too distant reminder […]

Bastardo’s Surprising Role

At a time when Mets fans were still clamoring for Yoenis Cespedes, the Mets made a move designed to sure up their bullpen when they signed Antonio Bastardo to a two year $12 million contract. Generally speaking, the move was well received. While Bastardo was a left hander, he was not exclusively a LOOGY. For […]

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

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. But now the Mets are back, and are… still the same offensively […]

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 […]
