The Mets officially announced that they have finalized their one year deal with reliever Brandon Lyon. They specifically highlighted that Lyon had had two 20-save seasons in his career which points to what most of us speculated regarding his chances to close for the Mets should Frank Francisco falter. According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, the base salary will be between $750K – $900K. But the total value of the contract can be worth […]

He said it was ninety percent of the players—in other words, nine out of ten guys. Let that marinate for a second.

The smell of fresh cut grass on a summer day is still one of my favorite smells in the world. That smell has the ability to draw memories that are buried deep in my subconscious mind, like a super powered magnet draws a needle from a haystack. Anyone who’s played this great game of baseball knows exactly what I mean. People will tell you similar stories about any memories they have. Certain sights and sounds […]

Each team is given 27 outs to score as many runs as they can. In order to score runs, a team’s players have to get on base.
