Di-JEST: Mets To Expand Use Of Rally Towels

Let’s face it. If we make a list of things that have worked for the Mets in 2014 it would be a short one: #1  Jacob deGrom – Both with his arm and his bat #2  Lucas Duda – Who’d a thunk the Mets would choose the right keeper between him and Ike? #3 Rally […]

MMO Exclusive: Dillon Gee Discusses Pitching, Outfield Defense, Having A Solid Bullpen

A couple weeks ago, I reached out to Mets pitcher Dillon Gee for an interview, and Dillon was kind enough to let me do an online Q&A with him. Gee had the 7th-lowest ERA in baseball from the end of May 2013 to the time at which he was placed on the DL in May 2014. […]

Will We See Matt Reynolds In September?

I couldn’t help paying a little extra attention last night when Gary Cohen brought up the subject of shortstop after Wilmer Flores committed his second error of the game which led to three unearned Dodgers runs.

Featured Post: The Wilmer Flores Experiment

At just 23 years old, it’s hard to imagine giving up on a highly regarded prospect. Still, I believe the time has come for the Mets to move on from Wilmer Flores. Signed at the ripe old age of 16, Flores has progressed slowly through the Mets farm system, racking up almost 3,000 minor league […]

3 Up, 3 Down: Bay Watch

The Mets concluded their brief two game set against the Oakland A’s and yet again, walked away with a split.  To quote ACDC’s late Bon Scott, “I’m hot, and when I’m not, I’m cold as ice”.  That pretty much sums up this series, this season and this team.  Below is a 3 up/3 down review […]

You Gotta Have Heart, And A Little Crazy Helps Too

David Wright is sounding like a desperate man these days. He’s seeing his power numbers evaporate and he’s had to bear another year entrenched in a mediocre lineup on a mediocre team. He’s got everything a man could wish for. A great apartment, buckets of money, a gorgeous wife and a great job … but […]
