I did an interview yesterday for a grad student who was doing a thesis on sports blogging, social media and the dichotomy between fans today and twenty years ago. It ended up being an opportunity where I actually learned more about myself, our community at MMO and social media as I knew it to be. I found myself giving responses that I didn’t expect and I guess that’s the beauty of not knowing the questions […]
Even after last week’s signing of Chris Young, the Met outfield is still in dire circumstances. Although they have two starters set in place in Juan Lagares and Young, neither of them are sure bets at the plate. With the Mets presumably sticking with either Lucas Duda or Ike Davis at first base for next year, significant upgrades need to be made to shortstop and a corner outfield position (unless the Mets get even more […]
The Mets surprised the baseball world by making their first major league free agent signing of the offseason, inking outfielder Chris Young to a one-year, $7.25 million contract. The Mets now get a right (or left, depending on who else they acquire) fielder for Opening Day. While $7.25 million may seem to some like an overpay, especially considering Young batted a career-worst .200 this season with Oakland, this deal may actually be looked at, when […]
Brandon Allen has some surprising power in his bat. This kid has hit a pair of towering home runs in his short and nondescript career. The first was a 435 foot home run at Yankee Stadium, and the second was this mammoth blast at Chase Field off Yovani Gallardo. It was the longest home run ever hit to right field. Check it out… Original Post 11/19 The Mets announced via Twitter that that have signed […]

The obstruction call that ended in in a 5-4 victory for the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 3 of the World Series on Saturday night Maury Brown of Forbes.com said the broadcast drew 12.5 million viewers on FOX, up 19 percent over Game 3 in 2012 and ranking as the most-watched World Series Game 3 since 2009 based on Nielsen Media Research data. FOX averaged a 7.4 fast national rating for the game, up 21 […]
Tiger’s skipper Jim Leyland will not be back at Comerica Park in 2014, says Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports via Twitter. The 68-year old longtime manager informed his players as well as the team following their Game 6 loss in the ALCS to the Boston Redsox that he intends to step down and that it was time for someone younger to take the reins. A press conference has been called by the Tigers to announce Leyland’s […]
After undergoing surgery in April to repair a tear in the anterior capsule of his left shoulder, Johan Santana has begun a throwing program and is making great progress toward his return to pitching in games. Last week, Jorge Castillo of the Star-Ledger reported that Santana’s agent, Chris Leible, said a return to the Mets isn’t out of the question for the Mets’ southpaw, but the two sides still haven’t spoken. “He’s not putting pressure on himself,” Leible […]
Mets ace Matt Harvey rejoined the Dan Patrick show this morning and apologized for yesterday’s awkward interview, when he talked about his Qualcomm promotion and that’s it. He told Patrick that he had a lot on his mind and was on his way to the doctor during his call and was a bit flustered. “That wasn’t me at all yesterday,” Harvey said. “I was thinking about it all day. The interview I gave you was […]
