NL East At A Glance Miami Marlins: The team that essentially alienated whatever fan base they thought they had looks like an obvious 5th place team in this division. They do however have the best player in the division in Giancarlo Stanton. No matter what the rumors say, I still think Giancarlo is a Marlin for a very long time. If I’m wrong, I hope I’m apologizing on my way to buy a Giancarlo Mets […]
NL Central At A Glance Chicago Cubs: If you think it can’t get worse than where the Mets were – take a look at the Cubs. However, they are getting to a point of respectability. Jeff Samardzija went from that guy who played tight end for Notre Dame to a potential ace. He has some serious talent, but is he an ace for a good team or does he just happened to be the best […]
NL West At A Glance Arizona Diamondbacks: The D’Backs made tough decisions this off-season They decided to build their roster based on their team concept, and not based on just overall talent. Some think Justin Upton was the move that proved their concept, but I think it was sending Trevor Bauer to Cleveland. Kevin Towers and Kirk Gibson have an idea of what they want this team to look and act like, and they apparently did […]
Professional sports franchises have been trying to reward fans for coming to their game for almost 70 years. The game, whether it’s baseball, basketball, football or hockey is always the number one attraction for any consumer to walk through the gates. In 1941, Bill Veeck started to bring a different point of view. What if the game wasn’t the only entertainment? In 1941, Veeck was a part of a group that purchased the Milwaukee Brewers […]
I love the air of optimism that occurs this time of year. Over the last few days we’ve seen a slew of MMO writers share their optimistic predictions for 2013, all sharing the same tone “Why not us?” In truth, the question is fair. Last year, nobody saw Oakland coming. The year prior, Arizona caught the league off guard and took the division from the 2010 World champion Giants. The last two years have had […]
The business of baseball is a lot tougher to grasp than the dynamics of “on-the-field” play. As fans, we look at the end result of every decision made. Did he sign? Who did we trade? When was he drafted? Rarely do we get to see what happens behind closed doors. Recently, the injury of Alex Rodriguez has brought about questions regarding the insurance of a player’s contract. On top of that, the discussion of whether […]
Am I the only one who sees a lot of Mike Pelfrey in Lucas Duda? Duda is expected to be the bright and shining star in the Mets OF (heck he was supposed to last year also) and it reminds me of when Pelfrey unfairly was expected to be the ace. It’s as if we see glimmers of hope and rather than accept the guy for what he is – we magnify it to make […]
It wouldn’t be an MLB offseason without a juicy PED scandal right? Well here you go. Courtesy of Tim Elfrink of the Miami NewTimes, some significant names have been associated with a Miami clinic that has been linked to supplying drugs to several people ranging from University coaches, to current MLB players. Of course there will be a lot of work done to check the validity of the story and the list, but Elfrink says […]
October 28, 2010 the Mets’ General Manager search came to an end. With the franchise in deep financial trouble with a $1billion lawsuit pending, the Mets (and probably MLB) reached out and hired Sandy Alderson. For some of us that was a good day. Alderson whether we want to admit it or not is very highly regarded in Major League Baseball. I’m a supporter of Sandy Alderson because it’s in my best interest as a […]
