New York Mets: Jacob deGrom makes history

It seems that even when the New York Mets are terrible, there is still one player who makes people want to continue watching. In 2011, it was Jose Reyes going on to win the National League batting title. In 2012, it was R.A. Dickey and his quest for 20 wins. In 2013, Matt Harvey burst onto the scene, earning a start in the All Star Game. In 2014, it has been Jacob deGrom. The rookie...

Forget the Draft- The New York Mets Should Win Now

The New York Post’s Joel Sherman today wrote how the New York Mets can salvage their season: By losing out. Sherman believes the Mets tanking is an “unappetizing thought”-but the reality is one of a loser’s mentality. Every team in the Mets’ situation should be thinking about tanking, as unappetizing as that thought is. There are two places you want to finish: as one of...

Wilmer Flores: Not a Disaster at Shortstop Yet

The footage embedded above comes from an August 22nd game between the Mets and the Dodgers and depicts Wilmer Flores acting out what is essentially the baseball equivalent of a first-day-of-school anxiety dream. With two outs and runners at first and second, Yasiel Puig batted a mostly harmless ground ball to Flores. Instead of converting […]

It All Hinges On Granderson and Wright

Gary Cohen brought up an interesting and sensitive point during Friday night’s broadcast, asking Ron Darling if he thought Curtis Granderson and David Wright would rebound next year. It was a lively conversation that I thought would be worth discussing on MMO so I went ahead and transcribed it. Gary Cohen: Granderson missed most of last year and hasn’t had a great year. But I...

Harvey Throws Simulated Game; Mets To Be Commended For Handling Difficult Injury

It wasn’t what he had in mind, but Matt Harvey did get on Citi Field’s mound in 2014. Several times during the season Harvey chirped about wanting to return in September, and the Mets are to be commended for not giving in to his ardent posturing. For a team hurting at the gate and playing better than expected, it could have been tempting to acquiesce to Harvey, who made things...

Reactions to Jenrry Mejia’s Celebration are Overstated

New York Mets closer Jenrry Mejia’s famous post-game celebrations have officially sparked controversy. The 24-year-old closer struck out Washington Nationals 2B Danny Espinosa to record his 26th save of the year last night, and proceeded to celebrate in dynamic fashion.

New York Mets: remembering the September 2001 home run

This isn’t going to be a typical article. I’m not going to talk about what’s currently going on with the New York Mets, even if they have won 6 of 8 and four of the last five. Because despite those aforementioned numbers, it isn’t fun for any of us to discuss the scraping and clawing that this team needs to do just to reach .500 or hold off the last place Phillies. Instead...

Don’t Buy Into Thinking Wright Injury Could Pave Way For Murphy Trade

My first question stemming from the Mets’ shutting down David Wright for the remainder of the season is: What took them so long, especially considering his propensity for playing through pain and injury? Seriously, Wright has had a sore left shoulder for weeks. He’s played through worse. Last night, Sandy Alderson said Wright “did what captains do,’’ and he “preserved...

Ex-Mets exec says she was fired for being 'pregnant and single'

Just when you think things are looking up for the New York Mets, a story like this one breaks that makes you weep for humanity. Former New York Mets SVP of marketing and ticket sales Leigh Castergine was fired last month, and is alleging that her firing came about because Mets COO Jeff Wilpon was “morally opposed” to her becoming pregnant while single.
