Some of my greatest memories with my father have revolved around sports. High-fiving eachother after witnessing an Islanders overtime win at the Nassau Coliseum. Sitting on the LIRR on our way to the Giants ticker-tape parade while my dad called me in sick to school; the attendance secretary not buying it for a minute. Nearly getting our heads taken off by a Skip Schumaker foul ball at Camden Yards. There are so many great memories around some of our favorite sports, yet none of them involved going to a Mets game together.
At least that was until earlier this season, when on April 1st, 2013–Opening Day–the two of us finally got out to the ballpark together, in a day I’ll never forget.
I have gone to my fair share of games, but it had always been with friends, or with groups or covering games for MMO. My father and I had always planned and promised each other that we would go to a Mets game together, but something would come up on my end or on his and we just kept putting off going.

Fred Wilpon spoke with Steven Marcus of Newsday on Monday and said he is confident in Sandy Alderson’s plan for the Mets. The Mets owner added that things will improve now that the big unproductive contracts are coming off the books.
“We’re coming to the end of the time when we have had an overhang of players who got hurt or didn’t play well, and I think that Sandy Alderson...
Zack Wheeler is expected to remain with Triple-A Las Vegas and throw his between-starts bullpen session with the Pacific Coast League club before joining the Mets on Monday in Atlanta. He is expected to pitch the nightcap of Tuesday’s doubleheader against the Braves at Turner Field.
Terry Collins said the nighttime assignment is designed to keep Wheeler in a routine.
David Wright, 3B
MMO Player of the Week!
Just when we thought it couldn’t get any worse, the Mets go ahead and prove us wrong. Although it’s a long shot to say that anybody was expecting to win a series against the best team in baseball (and the way this team was playing, against the Cubs), hopes were not high coming into the week. The streaky defense and simply atrocious offense...

Daniel Murphy drove in two, but it wasn’t nearly enough for the Mets.
The Chicago Cubs beat the New York Mets by the score of 6-3 tonight at Citi Field. The loss dropped the Mets to 14 games under .500 for the first time this season.
Shaun Marcum was in trouble early and struggled with his command, giving up a run in the first and then four more in the second. All told Marcum...

Been really tough to watch the Mets this year as all us die hards know. Even for me I just cant sit night after night watching the Mets score one or 2 runs with 5 hits. ZZZZZ . My partners in crime text me and ask are you watching this mess and I usually tell them I am busy with other things. A 2 year old will do that to you.
Of course yesterday being fathers day...
After 53 games of the 2013 baseball season, I think we have our enduring image. A defining moment. What it defines, I'm not sure. But it's going to wind up summing up this season perfectly:
That's Lucas Duda. In the seventh inning of a baseball game on Saturday with his team down by one run. Bunting. Willingly. Now mind you ... not only does Duda lead the Mets...
Matt Oberste grew up in Oklahoma as a lone ranger. As the majority of the population flocked to the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, he sought solace with another team: The New York Mets. His favorite player? David Wright, who he modeled himself after growing up.
Oberste was selected by the Mets in the seventh-round of the 2013 MLB Amateur Draft and quickly signed with the...

Think Anthony Young is getting nervous?
Or is he doing what we all should be doing ... anything except watching the New York Mets play baseball?
Here's my recap of Friday's game: I'm on the bus, and Shaun Marcum gives up five runs. So when I got home, I went to sleep. When I woke up, Marcum was 0-8. The End.

Because this needed to happen, that is why.

Play of the day candidate, watch Los Angeles Dodgers LF Skip Schumaker track a deep fly ball and rob Pittsburgh Pirates C Russell Martin of what should have been a 3-run home run. Video courtesy of MLB.com: With the home run, the Pirates take a one run lead 4-3. Without it, they’re still chasing 2 runs at 3-1. The game went to extras in which the Dodgers won 5-3, making...
