A couple of things have been on my mind recently as we get set to open the second half of the season. No preamble. Here they are: Free Agent Target? As expected, the crop of free agents after the 2014 season is miserable, but there is one guy who intrigues me. Should platoon options over […]

D’Arnaud Changed His Mindset, Not His Approach

When Travis d’Arnaud was demoted to the minors, the coaching staff down there had a two-hour talk with him, and he emerged a new man. Well, a new hitter, at least. Since returning to the Mets on June 24th, d’Arnaud is hitting .295 (18 for 61) with five doubles, three home runs and 10 RBI. D’Arnaud said he needed to clear […]

Over his twenty-year career from 198-2007 (excluding his very first and […]

I hardly ever agree with Ken Davidoff. I actually can’t remember the last time I did. But I have to give him credit. He nailed it 100% with his Hall of Fame ballot, or more specifically, his explanation of it. You can read the whole thing here. I can quibble with a choice or two, […]

MMO Mailbag: Add Zobrist to the Fold?

David asks: The Rays are looking for a first baseman. Do you think they could consider trading Ben Zobrist, who would be a real upgrade, for a package like Ike Davis, Daniel Murphy and a pitching prospect? I’m not sure how this makes sense right now, David. Sure, Zobrist is better than Murphy, but the […]
