Check Out John Buck’s Awesome New Mask!

In addition to his 2-for-4 performance during yesterday’s Opening Day routing of the San Diego Padres, Mets backstop John Buck debuted a snazzy new catcher’s mask that has people talking.

Matt Harvey terrific for the New York Mets in season debut

The New York Mets cruised to an 8-4 victory over the San Diego Padres  behind the right arm of future star, Matt Harvey. Harvey looked absolutely filthy on Wednesday night.  The 24-year-old dominated the Padres lineup allowing just one hit, with 10 strikeouts and two walks over seven scoreless innings of work, picking up his first victory of 2013 and first career win at Citi Field...

MMO Live Blog: Mets Up 7-2 Heading Into The Seventh, Niese Still Going

LIVE BLOGGING FROM CITI FIELD 6th Inning After a scoreless fifth, Niese got touched up for a home run in the top of the sixth. No harm no foul.

Then the Birthday Boy, Daniel Murphy, drives Niese home...

Mets’ Collins Keeps Pat Hand; Roster Notes

True to his word, manager Terry Collins is keeping a pat hand. Of course, why would you change anything after scoring 11 runs? COWGILL: Back on top of order. However, too often in recent seasons the Mets lineup seemed to change daily, with no regard of who was hot or slumping. Granted, there are times when a slump or bad pitching match-up will force a change, but I like Collins...

Mets Opening Day Was Sold Out As Fans Flocked To Citi Field

The attendance for Opening Day at Citi Field was 41,053 and it was a complete sellout. The team later announced that another 1,000 tickets on top of that were given away to those affected by Hurricane Sandy. You could see plenty of empty seats once the pre-game ceremonies got underway, but by the end of the second inning the place was packed and the throngs of fans were vocal and...

Mets Card of the Week: 1984 Dave Johnson

1984 TOPPS TIFFANY DAVE JOHNSON I slept with this card under my pillow the other night, hoping thoughts of a successful season would seep into my brain osmotically. Of course, the cruel irony is that the mid-’80s Mets are alive and well and living not far from me in Washington, DC, with an older and just-as-wise Davey Johnson at the helm. Johnson showed up in 1984 with a respectable...

MMO Live Blog: Mets Jump Out In Front 2-0 After Two, Woot, Woot!

LIVE BLOGGING FROM CITI FIELD 1:55 PM Update Ruben Tejada doubles home John Buck who chugs home to score the first run of the game. Deep breaths, John. Slugger Jon Niese singles Tejada home for the Mets second run and the Mets are on top 2-0 after two innings. I told you we had this! Keith Hernandez is not loving the sea of orange t-shirts in right-center and calls them a distraction...

Delaying Reality is FUN!

TweetWhat can you say? After another Opening Day win (the Mets have the best Opening Day record in baseball since their inception), the Mets sit undefeated and in first place in the NL East. Listen, we all know what’s in store for this team this year. Just for now, just for today, let’s just enjoy it while it lasts. Jon Niese reminded us how insane some fans and “experts...

Bobby Valentine Blasts Boston Media, Says New York Press ‘Knows More About Baseball’

Late last week the New York Mets announced that former New York and Boston skipper Bobby Valentine would be doing some pre- and postgame analysis for cable channel SNY this season. However, that isn’t stopping Valentine from talking about his former market.

Who Knew? Mets 2-0 Yankees 0-2 scary ain’t it ?

I am realist enough to know that the Mets are not going to win 162 games and the Yankees are not going to lose 162 games. But losing two in a row to your hated rivals can’t sit well this early with the Yankees who really need to get off to a good start injuries not withstanding. Could you imagine if George Steinbrenner was still alive now and this happened …a press relaease would...

I Need More Cowgill

So much for all the talk about how the Mets had such a weak outfield going into the start of the year. Leadoff man Collin Cowgill went 2-5 with a double & a grand slam and veteran Marlon Byrd went 2-5 with 2 singles, driving in a run on both.Aside from Cowgill and Byrd, four other Mets had a multi hit game against the Padres - Daniel Murphy, John Buck, Ruben Tejada and pitcher...
