Here by Unpopular Demand, My Playoff Predictions

I’m looking forward to these playoffs more than any other playoffs since, well, 2006. All four series are evenly matched and real tough to predict, but I’m going to try, anyway. ALDS The New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers.  The key to this series will be Game 2.  CC Sabathia and Justin Verlander are […]

The Underrated, Underappreciated Season of Pedro Beato

At first glance, Pedro Beato’s numbers have been nothing if not mediocre. And that’s true. But even at that very same first glance, its obvious Beato has had a decent season and has easily been more good than bad. And that alone puts him in rare company. The company he keeps as a Rule V […]

I Want Omar Minaya Back Redux

Back in March, I wrote this piece stating that with Minaya’s ability to scout and Sandy Alderson’s ability to run a franchise, the Mets would be in great shape moving forward if the two could work in tandem in some regard. We’re starting to see a little bit of that tandem come to fruition this […]
