Thoughts On Roster As We Move Closer To Opening Day

It’s hard to believe that as of this writing, a new baseball season will begin and 30 teams will be tied for first place again… or last depending on your point of view – in 20 days. Yesterday, the Mets made their first round of cuts and although I never expected Fernando Martinez or Ruben […]

Assuming Carlos Beltran isn’t available to the Mets by Opening Day, replacing him shouldn’t equal the dilemma CBS will have in replacing Charlie Sheen on “Two and a Half Men.” Both of Beltran’s knees are aching and he’s down for the week. Maybe he’ll come back next week; maybe he won’t. So, who will the […]

K-Rod Will Be A Major Force In 2011

Before that unfortunate altercation ended his season, Francisco Rodriguez was well on his way to a tremendous campaign in 2010. His 3.30 BB/9 was the best of his career, and his 10.52 K/9 was down right nasty. According to ESPN, one of the reasons for his improved performance last season was that he threw more first-pitch strikes than ever before, a […]

Opening Day is now 20 days away and catcher Ronny Paulino is still MIA. The worst part is the Mets still have no idea when he will arrive in camp. The delay is all because of his suspension from using illegal performance enhancing drugs and violating baseball’s policy on banned substances. He was supposed to […]
