The Washington Nationals have had an offseason to forget (finding out one of their top prospect was fake), but their biggest improvement happened off-the-field with the resignation of GM Jim Bowden. The Nationals were in negotiations with Mark Teixiera before falling short. They did, however, sign perennial 40 HR outfielder Adam Dunn to a 2-year, […]

Having had a great opportunity to attend Friday night’s exhibition game at Citi Field with the Mets taking on the Boston Red Sox, I felt obligated to give a fan’s first perspective on the new ballpark. My first impression as I arrived to the park via the 7 train was one of sadness. No longer are […]

NL East Preview: Florida Marlins

An article by posted on April 3, 2009 0 Comments

The Florida Marlins enter 2009 as a young, cheap team looking to see how well they can do before they have to trade away some players. Again.

Grading the Mets: Outfield

An article by posted on April 3, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets outfield has some question marks going into the season – but it should have the depth to be solid all year.  Other then Jeremy Reed replacing Endy Chavez, it will look similar to the end of the last year.  Although it has some questions, the pieces fit together nicely to give it depth […]

It’s almost that time of year again.  Baseball season is upon us and you can feel it in the air.  Last Spring all anyone can talk about was the collapse of 2007.  Johan Santana came over but that only dimmed the talk of the collapse.  The bullpen had question marks coming into the 2008 season […]

An article by posted on March 30, 2009 0 Comments

Some stories you just can’t make up. But they are entertaining on a slow news day. During the Mets-Orioles rain delayed game yesterday, the Oriole announcers left after the 1st rain delay. So for the 8 innings afterward, there was no commentary. I guess we’re not the only ones growing tired waiting for Spring Training […]

An article by posted on March 28, 2009 0 Comments

The Mets infield is the strongest component of the team, and one of the best in baseball.  The infield looks pretty much the same as last year, with the exception of the addition of Alex Cora and the departure of Damion Easley.  It should be noted that Marlon Anderson and Fernando Tatis can play some […]
