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)

Throwback Thursday: Delgado’s 9 RBI Day Against The Yankees

Welcome to another edition of the Stache’s Throwback Thursday posts where we take a look back in Mets history for something interesting to post on a Thursday. Today we all the way back to a better time for the New York Mets… 2008. Sure the team collapsed that year and were coming off a collapse the year before. But lets face it, after the past five years, 2008 was easily a better...

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...

Countdown to Cooperstown: Class of 2015

What's interesting about the Hall of Fame Class of 2015 is the same thing that got us excited about the Class of 2014...there are some definite no-brainers, shoe-ins if you will. Truth is, I don't know if the Hall of Fame has had back-to-back-to-back years (yup, already looking your way, 2016!) with so many quality, legitimate first ballot candidates.  But, as was...

Looking Back: The Carlos Delgado Trade

On November 24th, 2005, the Mets began the process of creating their best team since the 2000 Mets (none of the teams since then have been good at all or collapsed). The Mets had been starting Doug Mientkiewicz for the 2005 season at 1st base with minimal production. GM Omar Minaya (brings back some great memories right?) looked to add pieces to a promising lineup that included a...

Is It Time for Mets Fans to Panic Already?

Coming into the 2013-2014 off-season for the New York Mets, expectations were and still are high.

It seems like just yesterday that the team’s core was David Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado, and Carlos Beltran. This past season we saw...

Game Chatter: Zack Wheeler vs. Yusmeiro Petit (9/17/13)

Is there anything more surprising than the return of Yusmeiro Petit? In 32 IP this year he has 6 BB and 37 Ks, which has led to a 2.53 ERA and a 3-0 record. If he was still on the Marlins we could say there was still time for them to win the Carlos Delgado deal. Anyway, tonight’s game is at 7:10 pm.

Game Preview: Giants vs Mets

The Mets open up a series with San Francisco in New York tonight. The Mets had a good month back in July, and a lot of that was due to a fantastic trip to San Francisco, so hopefully the Mets can recreate that in Queens. Outside of Jerry Seinfeld broadcasting tonight, the Mets will have an odd homecoming of sorts as Yusmeiro Petit comes back to New York, the team that traded him...

Carlos Delgado at the Top of His Game

Carlos Delgado‘s official retirement in 2011 sort of slipped under the radar. It was understandable, since it came in April right after the beginning of the season. It was a bit unfortunate, though, because Delgado had an wonderful career. Yesterday at the Rogers Centre, the former Met and Marlin slugger was recognized by the team he was most closely associated with, the Blue Jays...

Carlos Beltran would be a Hall of Famer if he retired today. David Wright is on a Cooperstown track. Carlos Delgado probably will miss out, but he has 473 homers on his resume. Jose Reyes will go...
