ESPN is reporting that the Braves and Blue Jays have agreed to a trade that sends SS Alex Gonzalez and two minor leaguers for Yunel Escobar and Jo-Jo Reyes. This is a huge addition for the Braves as Gonzalez is a proven veteran, and despite his .259 average this year, he’s starting the 2nd half of the year with 17 HR and 50 RBI. The real significance of this deal is that no longer do [...]
I’m not an NBA fan; I was back in like 1994 when it was fun to watch. I do enjoy the business of sports and I followed the free agent frenzy up until last night. I officially don’t care about the NBA anymore, but as I watched the joke of a “special” last night I actually started to think about our Metsies. When I woke up this morning, I wasn’t shocked to hear the “rumors” [...]
Remember, I don’t know maybe a week and a half ago when Mike Pelfrey was a lock for his first MLB All-Star Game? I even think I heard Gary Cohen mention it during Pelfrey’s last start before last night. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news friends, but he’s probably not going to be in Anaheim this year. A couple of things to remember about the All-Star game. -First, you must have [...]
You know I took some heat recently for writing the blog regarding Wright’s supposed un-clutch ability here. Before I get into the subject of this blog, let me explain that. The problem I have with the so-called clutch players and the so-called un-clutch players is it’s usually based on memory and not fact. For example, one could argue that in the 2001 World Series Luis Gonzalez had a clutch series winning base hit against Mariano [...]
It’s always puzzling to me the way some Mets “fans” treat David Wright. Part of the problem I think has to be Derek Jeter. Jeter has set the bar so high for being the “face of a NY franchise,” that no matter who puts on a Yankees or Mets jersey years from now, they will always be compared to Derek Jeter. The problem with that is overall, Jeter obviously is a great player. What makes [...]
I decided last night that I am officially tired of Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt. Both of their trade sagas and rumors remind me of the Roy Halladay rumors that basically occurred for two full seasons. Granted, Halladay finally made his way out of Toronto (and not t Boston where everybody “knew” he’d end up.) However, it didn’t happen until the off-season, and realistically how many big name starting pitchers get traded away during the [...]
When the Mets get hot, we get a little crazy. Whether you’re a pessimistic or overly optimistic Mets fan, you have to agree that this 2010 season is a lot more fun than we could’ve hoped for. I can’t remember a team that one week could be dead in the water, and then the next week be thought of as a top 5 team in the NL. The Mets seem to do this every other [...]
Last night was a strange night in major league baseball. If you were like me, you turned to the MLB Network to watch Armando Galarraga throw a 28-out perfect game live. While that is going to be the story taking over a lot of sports talk shows today, it cannot be ignored that Ken Griffey Jr. has decided to retire from Major League Baseball. A few days ago, somebody posted a comment about how they [...]
Normally I’d like to do these type blogs on the first or last of the month. However, with this being a holiday weekend, I have no clue where I’ll be on any given day or night. So let’s begin our Mets 2010: State of the Union. This month looked like it was going to be the month where everything fell apart. The Mets starting pitchers hadn’t won a game until May 17th versus Atlanta. Mike [...]
