Do The Mets “Have The Horses” To Win?

It was the 7th game of the World Series, a heavyweight championship bout, and the Kentucky Derby all rolled into one. There was a definite buzz in the air during the summer of 1960 leading up to the presidential election. In one corner was Republican Richard Nixon. Fresh off 8 years as Vice President, Americans were already familiar with him. In the other corner was a young, vibrant...

#TBT: Carlos Delgado’s big day in the Bronx

If there is one thing the New York Mets missed before Lucas Duda’s 30 home run season, it was a legitimate home run threat. The team has produced only two 30 home run seasons since Carlos Delgado in 2008 -Ike Davis in 2012 and Lucas Duda in 2014. Heading into June 27, 2008, it appeared Carlos Delgado’s time with the Mets was coming to a close. The former Blue Jay slumped to a...

Carlos Delgado And The History Of First Ballot Cuts

On Tuesday, it was revealed that Carlos Delgado received less than the 5% needed to stay on the ballot for the Hall of Fame. Fans of the Toronto Blue Jays were not happy with the results, and it is justified. Delgado is the only player to have 30 or more home runs in 10 straight seasons and fall off the ballot after one try. There could be a lot of reasons this happened: a stacked...

Straight Hallin’

(Photo by Jim McIsaac/Getty Images) Some thoughts on Tuesday’s Hall of Fame announcement: As much as a shame as it is that Mike Piazza isn’t going to be inducted into the Hall of Fame this season, it is clear by Piazza’s vote total that 2016 will be his year. So I’m not going to flip out over this because yesterday, while learning that he’ll have to wait another year for...

Carlos Delgado’s Hall of Fame snub highlights flawed voting system

Carlos Delgado was never a likely candidate to be inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame. However, he didn’t deserve to be snubbed on his first ballot. Call it irrelevant, but if Don Mattingly hung around for 15 years, Delgado should have accrued enough votes to hang around for more than one. A two-time All-Star, Delgado hit 473 home runs (31st all-time), slugged .546...

Appreciating this year’s likely one and done players

We’re just hours away from the announcement of the 2015 Hall of Fame class. While there are plenty of worthy candidates on the ballot this year, some have no shot at getting elected. Sure, Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez are going to coast in this year, and John Smoltz and Craig Biggio look like they’ll roll in this year, but there are plenty of players that aren’t going to...

The New York Mets Need Not Move in the Outfield Walls Again

The New York Mets are considering changing the dimensions of their spacious ballpark once again this offseason. The alterations are intended to “(make) Citi Field as fan-friendly and as exciting as we can make it,” according to Sandy Alderson. Citi Field is not the issue, and any attempt to further alter the ballpark will come off as stark desperation for a team set to conclude...

Oh, Just Mike Napoli Launching a Home Run to the Fifth Deck of the Rogers Centre

Although his bat has been quiet of late, Mike Napoli remains a force to be reckoned with. The Italian Thor, you might say. For proof, I submit a home run he hit during last night’s Sox-Jays game at the Rogers Centre. A shot that hit the mother-effin’ fifth deck. And here’s a cleaner shot: Your browser does not support iframes. As you can see in my ****** vine, the ball landed...

D-backs prospect hits five home runs in five consecutive at-bats (VIDEO)

The record for hitting consecutive Major or Minor League home runs was four in a row, set most recently by Carlos Gonzalez in 2012 and Carlos Delgado in 2003. And now, thanks to Jon Griffin, that record is broken. During two games on Wednesday and Thursday, the Diamondbacks prospect hit five home runs in five consecutive plate appearances while playing for the Double-A Mobile BayBears...

MMO Fan Shot: First Base Competition is a Good Thing

An MMO Fan Shot by John C.Let the competition begin.While “open competition” has become little more than a cliché for most major league clubs, the Mets being no exception (does anyone other than Chris Young honestly believe center field will be an open competition in 2014?), I believe the first-base battle slated for St. Lucie this spring will be a very real one. I am also naïve...
