Daniel Murphy Belongs At Second Base, Not Valdespin

Two years ago, never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be typing the first six words of this post, but it’s true. Daniel Murphy has proven himself as a formidable second baseman in 2013, and jerking him around the diamond is not going to do him or the Mets any favors. The […]

Ike Davis Is Determined To Make It Back To The Mets

Poor Ike Davis…  He gets demoted to Triple-A, deservedly so, and leaves for Las Vegas without commenting on his feelings or the matter. The obviously crushed first baseman kept his head down after the game on Sunday as he emptied his locker, packed his bags and headed for the airport. SNY sent their Baseball Insider […]

Broadcasting Games For A Loser Presents Certain Challenges

In an article that was highly critical of the New York Mets, Bob Raissman of the Daily News pondered how challenging it must be for SNY to broadcast Mets games and still keep the viewers from tuning out.

Who’s Batting Third? It Should Be Daniel Murphy.

Lineup design tends to follow a classic formula:  the leadoff hitter gets on base, the number two guy gets him over, the number three or four guy knocks him in. It’s that simple. Or it would be in an ideal baseball world. The Met lineup has generally been anything but ideal this season as their […]

MMO Player Of The Week: It’s Marlon Byrd!

Marlon Byrd, OF MMO Player of the Week! The Mets had a dismal week out there over the last seven days, having played only four games due to multiple rain outs. Unfortunately, all but one game ended with a check in the Loss Column. It might have been an even worse week for the Amazins’ if […]

Mets Minors: Eric Campbell Is The Forgotten Man

In some ways, he could be called the forgotten Met prospect. With all the excitement of a young cadre of minor league pitchers, the yet unfulfilled promise of catching phenom Travis d’Arnaud, and the dizzying AA offensive numbers Cesar Puello is racking up in Binghamton, it is easy to get immersed into their storylines and bypass some others.
