What Happens to Pedro?

An article by posted on January 11, 2009

With the Mets signing Redding this past week to have him “compete” with Niese for the final rotation spot, and still confident that they will sign either Lowe or Perez, the question then becomes what happens to Pedro. Omar still likes Pedro, and was open to his return. Pedro has made it very public that […]

An article by posted on January 11, 2009

With Jason Giambi going back to the Oakland Athletics, where he began his baseball journey, people have started to discuss if going back to the original team a player started with would resurrect their careers. I do not agree with this. Coming home again does not come with any guarantees. Some people argue that it […]

Let It Be

An article by posted on January 10, 2009

This offseason, Omar Minaya has fixed the bullpen. He hasn’t done much else; I would have signed Oliver Perez before Tim Redding. It’s such a shame they’re not even considering Perez. I would give him a multi-year deal over Derek Lowe any day of the week. With the departures of both Aaron Heilman and Scott […]

An article by posted on January 8, 2009

MLB Network is In, SNY, YES and NESN are Out I don’t know about you, but ever since the debut of MLB Network, I haven’t tuned into SNY once. Of course I’ll be watching every Mets game as well as Pre and post game coverage, but let’s face it, given the choice between the two it’s […]

Note To Romero: Read The Label

An article by posted on January 7, 2009

I woke up to the freezing cold and icy roads this morning in Pennsylvania. I did not want to get out of bed. So I turned on my cellphone and went to ESPN. God bless Verizon. There is another side to the J.C. Romero story. I was on board with everyone else where I did […]

Ben Sheets Could Be A Steal

An article by posted on January 5, 2009

The following comment was recently left by Drew: Ben Sheets would be a STEAL at $22M/2. If he’s willing to take it, give it to him, but I think tossing the offer we’ve got to Lowe right now to Sheets is still a bargain and possibly something he’d sign for. To get Ben Sheets for […]
