Amazin’ Again: This Was Never Supposed To Happen

This was never supposed to happen. The 2015 Washington Nationals are one year removed from a 96-win season and an NL East crown by 17.0 games. The Mets, meanwhile, could not muster 80 wins and tied for second place. The Nationals were the new kings of the NL East — and the Mets? Irrelevant for […]

The New and Improved Michael Cuddyer

Ladies and gentlemen, meet Michael Cuddyer. You may recognize the name from someone you knew back in June or July, but this is in fact somebody else entirely. It appears that a 3-week-long DL stint was exactly what Michael Cuddyer needed to finally get his season on track. During Sunday’s 5-4 win against the Boston […]
