The Atlanta Braves had a successful 2009 season, finishing with a record of 86 and 76. They have made numerous moves this winter in anticipation of the 2010 season. Maybe these moves will benefit them for the long term, but for 2010, I don’t think they have improved their ball club enough. Starting Pitching: Last year’s best starter Javier Vazquez was traded, so that in itself weakens the Braves rotation. The starting five is still deep […]
As most of you all know, pending a healthy physical, Jason Bay will soon be introduced to the masses in a press conference within the next few days. While I’m as excited as most of you about his addition to the team, one thing still puzzles me about the events that led to his agreement with the Mets. How did WFAN’s Mike Francesa get the scoop, and manage to keep it such a secret? Like most […]
The Mets have been connected to free agent pitcher Joel Pineiro since the beginning of the off season. Pineiro is said to be Minaya’s top pitching target. It is believed that Pineiro is being pursued by the Dodgers and Angels as well. Although Pineiro has at least three suitors, it remains to be seen if any of these teams will meet his contract demands. Pineiro is said to be looking for a three or four year […]
Last week, I wrote of Omar Minaya and remarked about him actually using learnings from past mistakes and exhibiting patience and being prudent in the face of enormous pressure. I commend him for not giving in to the heat of talk radio and the national media in general, and opinions calling for his dismissal on the Mets own network, SNY. He stuck to his plan and now has what appears to be an agreement with […]
Just hours after we found out about a deal being in the works to bring Jason Bay to Flushing another significant free agent signing is being reported. ESPN Radio’s Rich Coutinho is reporting that the Mets are close to signing catcher, Bengie Molina, to a two-year deal. Financial terms of the deal have not yet been disclosed. Last season with the San Francisco Giants, the 36 year-old Molina hit .265 with 20 home runs and […]
Last week Mike Vaccaro post a blog on the New York Post website that you can read right here saying that ticket agents from the Mets are questioning the loyalty of fans who have not yet renewed their season tickets for the 2010 season. I did get a phone call asking me if I was planning on buying the ticket package, but my loyalty to the team was not questioned by that particular agent, having […]
The Arizona Diamondbacks have come to terms with reliever, Bob Howry, reports Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic [Hat tip MLB Trade Rumors]. Terms of the deal are not immediately available, however it includes an option for the 2011 season and is rumored to be worth somewhere in the ball park of $2 million to $3 million. Last season with the San Francisco Giants, the Arizona native appeared in 63 games and pitched to an […]
Various news outlets are reporting tonight that the New York Mets have signed Kelvim Escobar to a one year Major League contract. The 33 year-old right hander has pitched for two teams throughout his big league career; first with the Toronto Blue Jays and most recently with the Los Angeles Angels. During his career, Escobar has amassed a win/loss record of 101-91 and compiled an ERA of 4.15. His best season came in 2007 when […]
Ok so the title of my post maybe a bit deceiving, no this feature will not last 80 days, but I thought it would be a cool project to go around the league and connect with bloggers from the other 29 MLB teams and have them weigh in on their teams. For my first stop of the tour, I check in with Daniel Moroz, founder of Camden Crazies, which is an excellent blog dedicated to […]
