New York Mets’ playoff drought up to 8 seasons

Friday, September 19, 2014. The last day of relevance of the New York Mets’ season. The Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers to officially eliminate the Mets from Wild Card contention. With the Nationals clinching the National League East earlier in the week, the Mets are playing the rest of the way for pride and the slim chance to achieve a .500 record. It would take...

Flores De Los Metos

Yesterday, Wilmer Flores went 3-for-4, 2 runs, 6 RBIs with his 5th and 6th homers. With David Wright hurt, Flores has been playing every day. The Mets are thankfully still able to get Ruben Tejada into their lineup. The Mets said, "We've wanted to drop Tejada, send down Tejada or trade Tejada for a nickel on a dollar, but since we can't figure out the paperwork, we...

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...

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...

Youth Movement Sparks Aura of a Playoff Push

The New York Mets last played in the postseason on October 19th, 2006. In the near-decade since the club’s last postseason appearance, the only aspects of the organization that remain are ownership and David Wright. Sure, the numbers 15 and 21 find themselves in the lineup more often than not- but the names atop read d’Arnaud and Duda, not Beltran and Delgado. If all went according...

After winning the first two games without their All-Star third baseman, the Mets now look to end their longest home losing streak to any opponent in Thursday night's opener with the Nationals. New York is 5-7 without Wright...

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...

1,700 Hits Down, 1,300 Hits To Go

With his single in the top of the first on Saturday off of the Reds Johnny Cueto, third baseman David Wright reached 1,700 base hits in his MLB career. The Captain will be entering his age 32 season in 2015 and with just 1,300 hits left until the magical 3,000 number, the question is can Wright get there?

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, raised a very interesting question in his column over the weekend. Will the 2015 Mets really be any better than the 2014 Mets?
