Precipice – a very steep rock face or cliff, typically a tall one.  Roman adage – “add insult to injury.”  DENVER, CO – I serve you all with this word, as this is the most fitting palabra that I can think of for the Mets season. I server you with this adage as its origin […]

Glug, Glug, Glug: Mets Ship Sinking, Rangers, Yanks Predators Chugging

MARLBORO, NY – It was on this date in 1915 that a German submarine sank the Lusitania and thrust the U.S. of A. into World War I. Present day sports has me reporting in a similarly negative manner on the New York Mets, New York Yankees and the NHL Playoffs. Abandon ship! Friday night’s comeback […]

EL BARRIO, EL BRONX – If you regularly pinch-hit enough are you a pinch-hitter? That’s my tree-falling-with-nobody-around question. Mull that over while I dive into today’s piece. This site used to be a Mets fan site. It was what made Different Matt, well… Different! It is Meet The Matts – like Meet The Mets, right?! I say […]

Angry Ward Wednesday: Gene Wilder Sports Tribute? Sure, Why Not?

30 Comments

BRONX, NY – This past Monday we lost yet another bright light from our planet when the great Gene Wilder exited stage right. This was, of course, on the heels of losing our own funnyman, Al Sternberg. I think most will agree that 2016 has been absolutely brutal. But, for once, I’m not gonna dwell on […]

Fooling Yourself: New York Mets Players and Styx Songs

ENGLISHTOWN, NJ – I’m not really sure of the marketing principle behind booking Rock ‘n Roll has-beens for post-game concerts, but that’s what happened at CitiField AFTER the AAA Padres vs Mets debacle. If you endured either, my condolences to your eyes and ears. Anyhow, band members Tommy Shaw and James Young probably swing an […]

Fire Terry, Get A Bat, Bench Granderson

FLUSHING, NY– I received a directive from Short Matt about today’s topics and his verbatim text is the column’s headline. I agree with none of it. The boss has clearly taken another blow to the head so we’ll need to forgive his knee-jerk reaction to the Mets problems. Outside of the other night when he […]

NOTE: This was written before last night’s results were in, so my Mets Mood is a bit brighter today… but still. FLUSHING, NY – The New York Mets currently hold a precarious one-game lead on the second of two wild card spots in a very pedestrian National League. As most of you now know, I […]

Meet Matt Harvey: .500 pitcher

4 Comments

FLUSHING, NY-Compared to most people on MTM, I have been a Mets fan for all of about two seconds. Curtis Granderson is batting below the Mendoza line as a leadoff batter but, thankfully for The Grandy Man, there is a hot-button topic surrounding the team bothering the fan base that I find a little puzzling.

Giants Ground Jets, Mets Better Than Yanks

13 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – For the rare NY Jets and New York Yankees fan, like Johnny Rox, yesterday was a bad day. For fans of the Giants and and Mets, like our Founding Matts, yesterday was a grand day. Why? Because we couldn’t help but think that today’s NY headlines could read something like this: […]

BRONX, NY – You ever have one of those stretches where it seems like nothing goes right? Just one exploding stove and high gruesome after another? Y’know, like Terry Collins? Well I’m in the midst of one, but who the eff cares? The last thing you people need to hear is a bunch of b*tching […]
