DOC A Memoir By Dwight Gooden and Ellis Henican In the mid 1980’s no pitcher was more feared and more dominant than the Mets young superstar, Dwight “Doc” Gooden. Gooden arrived in New York in 1984 as a shy nineteen year old from Tampa and became a pitching sensation overnight, Times Square even held an 105 foot mural of Doc on the mound. His first season he was named Rookie of the year; his second, […]
Here is a complete wrap-up of Day One of the 2013 First Year Player Draft which includes the first two rounds and the competitive balance rounds. FIRST ROUND 1. Astros select: Mark Appel, RHP, Stanford University Well then… The dominant young Mark Appel ends up going first. Was Johnathan Gray’s positive test for Adderall a factor in him slipping from #1? Perhaps, but Appel is not the #1 pick by luck. He is clearly a […]

If you missed it last night, you can watch the full interview below. Personally, I thought this was one of the best Harvey interviews I have seen all season. Ryan did a great job of […]
We’re feeling giddy here at 3N3 headquarters… The champagne corks are popping, because yes friends, the New York Mets have swept the New York Yankees in all four games of the Subway Series for the first time ever. Let’s say it again, the Mets SWEEP the Yankees! In all my writing here on MMO, I am nothing if not honest, so I’ll say it up front, I hate the Yankees, and I despise their fans. […]
