You’ve heard it, I’ve heard, everybody has heard it. The Mets do not plan on being active through free agency but they do intend on being active through trades this winter. Only time will tell what really happens, but those words from Alderson has pre-heated the hot stove oven for sure! Everywhere you go, you see a list of trade possibilities. J.P. Arencibia, Justin Upton, Josh Willingham, trading Wright, trading Dickey. The list goes on. [...]
NLDS: Nationals v. Cardinals 3:07 PM TBS The #1 seed Nationals are in unfamiliar territory, and they have no time to get used to it because they are headed to the home of the defending champs. It’s been a great season for Washington, but now it’s all about the next hurdle. Can this team prove that they are ready for championship baseball in spite of their lack of experience? Their starting lineup showcases just two [...]
ALDS: Athletics v. Tigers 6:07 PM TBS On December 9, 2011, the Oakland A’s traded Trevor Cahill and Craig Breslow to Arizona. In return they received, Ryan Cook, Collin Cowgill and their Game 1 LDS starter, Jarrod Parker. If you are one of those baseball fans that hate Billy Beane, enjoy rooting against the best story in baseball through October. Oakland represents everything that is great about the sport – it’s not about how you [...]
This year, Major League Baseball’s plan to add an extra wildcard has proven to be a brilliant move in my view. It created two divisional races actually having importance during game 162, and it’s created two very great matchups tonight. I think this is probably the most evenly matched playoff tournament in a very long time. The two number 1 seeds are vulnerable not only because they start on the road, but because of roster [...]
Last night was a great night for Venezuelan Baseball. We all know the story by now, Miguel Cabrera is the first non-American born player to ever hit for the Triple Crown, and even when he didn’t have to – he went out and played in a meaningless game on the road, and had 2 at bats before Manager Jim Leyland took him out of the game. He deserves not only a ton of respect for [...]
This will be totally off topic, but we’re Mets fans because we’re baseball fans right? I find this year’s individual awards to be the most fascinating year I can remember. The AL Cy Young is probably between David Price, Justin Verlander and perhaps Fernando Rodney. The NL Cy Young has 5-7 legitimate candidates as I detailed yesterday. The NL MVP is likely going to Buster Posey, but the AL MVP… that’s still in doubt? This [...]
Tonight, Robert Allen Dickey will pitch his final game of the 2012 season. At 37 years old, Dickey is completing one of the most unlikely career turnarounds that most of us have ever witnessed in the sport. I do not need to recount the history of this man’s career, I think everybody reading this knows where he’s been and how he got to where he is today. I’m here to present the case in defense [...]
Everybody knows by now the story of Moonlight Graham right? The end result of that story is that he didn’t get a 2nd chance at getting a major league at bat. Well, in front of our very own eyes we will see an ending to a similar story. Guilford, Connecticut resident Adam Greenberg will be playing the part of Moonlight Graham on October 2nd. Don’t know Greenberg’s story? On July 9, 2005 – Adam Greenberg [...]
As a fan it’s practically our job to hate Bud Selig, but say whatever you want to say – his plan has worked. The second playoff spot has created the most interesting September I can remember. Realistically in the AL you have 8 out of 14 teams with less than ten games to go and all still have playoff hopes. None of the division leaders would dare choose to win the wild card rather than [...]
By now, everybody is aware of one of the biggest waiver trades in recent memory. The Red Sox sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett, Carl Crawford, Nick Punto and $11 milliion in cash to the LA Dodgers in exchange for James Loney, pitcher Allen Webster, infielder Ivan DeJesus Jr. and two players to be named. The two players to be named later will be Zach Lee, and Rubby De La Rosa – both did not clear [...]
Everybody knows the Mets need some serious help on the big league roster right? I think their problems go beyond just the roster, and I think now is the time to start fixing those problems. For the last two years, I’ve taken it easy on the Mets and their front office. Mostly because I feel none of us have any idea what the real story was as to the depths of the financial nightmare that [...]
