Today is the big day when the new class of Hall of Famers will be announced sometime around 1:00 PM EST. I say Hall of Famers, but my gut tells me only one player will be elected today; Roberto Alomar. Of course Alomar should have gotten in last year, but he fell a few votes […]

An article by posted on January 4, 2011 0 Comments

Happy New Year everyone! We’re 49 days away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training. As everyone knows I don’t have much confidence in the 2011 Mets and I’m already looking forward to the 2012 season as many are already suggesting   I honestly believe this is just a lost season, where .500 would be […]

Why haven’t the A’s finished above .500 since 2006? It’s a question I’ve seen asked by some detractors of sabermetrics, as if a few seasons under .500 can eradicate nearly 40 years of research.

Mets Add RHP Taylor Buchholz and DFA Ryota Igarashi

In addition to signing left-hander Chris Capuano, the Mets have also signed right-hander Taylor Buchholz to a one-year contract, and to make room for him they have designated reliever Ryota Igarashi for assignment.

I love the internet and I spend a great portion of my day just reading my sports feeds, chatting with or emailing friends, and even blogging on this site. However, the internet does have its drawbacks. Lately there seems to be a wide array of opinions on who should or shouldn’t get into the Hall of […]

Build A Bench Workshop: It Takes A Milledge?

Remember our first teenage hitting machine? No, not F-Mart, the one before him, Lastings Milledge. According to MLB Trade Rumors, Milledge is currently  the youngest free agent on the market. Of course that alone would not be a good enough reason for putting Milledge back in a Mets uniform, but there are some compelling reasons to […]

If Phillies Can’t Afford To Keep Hamels, Should Mets Go After Him?

An article by posted on January 2, 2011 0 Comments

I read an article today in the Philadelphia Inquirer, that said the Phillies have not discussed an extension with left-handed starting pitcher Cole Hamels. Theoretically, he is the next in line for a multiyear extension, but those talks have yet to begin. As the Phillies’ payroll grows, it’s natural to wonder where Hamels fits. Then again, […]

How My Hall Of Fame Ballot Would Have Looked

There always seems to be a lot of controversy around this time each year over the Hall of Fame voting process. Most of the grief stems from the two-dozen or so undeserving writers who seemingly go out of their way each year to mock the institution with their unworthy ballots. Some of them go out of their […]
