The New York Mets have completed their 2010 Major League coaching staff this week. New additions include Dave Jauss as bench coach and Chip Hale as third base coach. Among the incumbents, Razor Shines, the third base coach in 2009, moves to first base, while Howard Johnson (hitting coach), Dan Warthen (pitching coach) and Randy Niemann (bullpen coach) will continue in their same roles.

Before you read any further I would like to issue a disclaimer of sorts. Despite all the buzz around the internet suggesting that Adrian Gonzalez and/or Miguel Cabrera, I don’t believe that either will be traded this off-season. Furthermore, I would like to go out on a limb and say that even if they were to be traded, I don’t see the Mets on the receiving end of either of the potential deals. Think about […]
Prior to the 2009 season, Bobby Parnell knew that he was, by no means, guaranteed to make the Opening Day roster. Nonetheless, he worked hard and pitched very well in Spring Training, which him earned a spot on the 25-man roster. His role with the team was supposed to be the seventh inning bridge to J.J.

Original Post 11:40 PM Phil Rogers of the Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Cubs are continuing to explore ways to move outfielder Milton Bradley, and says that they are still working on a three team deal to get […]
Johan Santana had long been considered the best pitcher in baseball. From 2004-2008 there wasn’t a pitcher who could touch him, posting some remarkable numbers, especially when you consider that he called the AL home up until 2008: Struck out 200 or more batters every season Had a sub-3.00 ERA in four out of five seasons (the other year saw him at 3.33) Posted three WHIPs of 1.00 and better (and the other two season’s […]
