An article by posted on July 1, 2010 0 Comments

Remember, I don’t know maybe a week and a half ago when Mike Pelfrey was a lock for his first MLB All-Star Game? I even think I heard Gary Cohen mention it during Pelfrey’s last start before last night. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news friends, but he’s probably not going […]

What If Pagan Weren’t a Met?

With all the uproar associated with those who even DARE mention Angel Pagan‘s name in a potential Cliff Lee trade, I thought it would be appropriate to explore a certain scenario.  What if, just what if, Angel Pagan was putting up his 2010 numbers…… in another uniform.  In other words, what if Pagan were on the […]

An article by posted on June 30, 2010 0 Comments

It’s so interesting to think about the idea that a Mets team who lost 90 games last year is now in contention for a playoff spot without their All-star caliber CF. Granted, Pagan has performed much better than anybody expected him to perform and the importance of his performance cannot be measured. Although, I wish […]

You win some and you lose some, and then there’s games like last night. When Hanley Ramirez launched that grand slam to put the Marlins ahead 4-3, I swear I had a vision of it seconds before it played out on my TV screen. It just seems that whenever the opposition loads the bases against […]

I have a feeling that I would really enjoy having a philosophical conversation about life with Jerry Manuel. A conversation about baseball strategy? Not so much.

So the continuing saga…continues… Geoff Baker has struck again on his Marinerblog for the Seattle Times. Baker, a great baseball writer for the Seattle Times, believes Cliff Lee will be on the move, maybe even after tonights game vs. the Yankees in the Bronx.

Clutch Hitting Comparison

An article by posted on June 29, 2010 0 Comments

You know I took some heat recently for writing the blog regarding Wright’s supposed un-clutch ability here. Before I get into the subject of this blog, let me explain that.  The problem I have with the so-called clutch players and the so-called un-clutch players is it’s usually based on memory and not fact.
