Last week, I wrote of Omar Minaya and remarked about him actually using learnings from past mistakes and exhibiting patience and being prudent in the face of enormous pressure. I commend him for not giving in to the heat of talk radio and the national media in general, and opinions calling for his dismissal on […]

Keith Law of ESPN, a disciple of advanced metrics, says that Bay’s defense will dictate whether the contract is a good one or not. Umm, really?

An article by posted on December 29, 2009 0 Comments

The title of this post works in more than one way. It’s been a while since I have sat down and wrote an article, and it’s been a while since we’ve seen a major move from the Mets. Of course, that hinders on what you consider a major move, but looking at what the opposition […]
