I know I am a little late on the issue and that most of you really do not want to read anything about Cole Hamels. That is fine by me. I still think he is a goddamn idiot for announcing to the world that he hit Harper on purpose. He basically went out of his way to say, “Suspend me! Or fine me, that would be ok too.” Of course, my only quibble here, is […]
It’s amazing what that Gio Gozalez trade has done for the Washington Nationals. A lot of those who squawked that the Nats gave up too much are eating crow these days. Damn, I wanted the Mets to go after him so bad last Winter. The Nationals were smart in locking him up to a five-year, $42 million dollar contract extension which essentially buys out all of Gio’s arbitration years plus one year of free agency and also includes options for […]
Throughout the 150+ year history of Baseball there are only a few truly iconic images burned into our psyche: A solemn Lou Gehrig standing at a microphone. Babe Ruth pointing his bat towards the outfield ‘calling his shot.’ Jackie Robinson running onto the field in 1947 and changing not only the game but America. Bob Gibson, cap low over his head, staring in for the sign. Hank Aaron, a black man in the deep south, […]
MLB.com’s Jonathan Mayo says that this year’s draft does not have a consensus number one pick. In other words there is no one stand-out talent like in year’s past when you had Gerrit Cole, Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg. He believes that the Houston Astros are considering as many as seven or eight different players as they decide who they will take with their first overall pick. In a way it plays into the Mets […]
“I’m coming back. Write it down in big letters. I’m not going out like this.” -Mariano Rivera today on his possible season-ending ACL injury Those are the words of a true champion, of someone who doesn’t know the meaning of the word “can’t”. If you know him just as the all-time saves leader, then you do not know Mariano Rivera. Despite whatever resentment you may hold for the logo across his chest, one has to […]
This is a Mets blog, but also a baseball blog, and part of baseball is Mariano Rivera, the Yankees’ Hall of Fame closer. Mets fans remember Rivera because he snuffed out many games over the years, including Game 5 of the 2000 World Series. When the ball left Mike Piazza’s bat with a crack I thought it had a chance, but like many before, because of that awesome cutter, Piazza didn’t get all of it […]
In the last two months, the Mets, Rangers, Indians, Reds, Giants and Nationals locked up Jon Niese, Ian Kinsler, Carlos Santana, Brandon Phillips, Madison Bumgarner and Ryan Zimmerman, respectively. Niese was given a five-year deal with two club options that is guaranteed for $25.5 million, and could be worth as much as $46 million. Kinsler just inked a five-year, $75 million contract extension. Nationals franchise player Ryan Zimmerman will earn $100 million for the next […]
To see my previous mock draft from February in which I had the Mets drafting left-handed pitcher Max Fried, click here. 1. Houston Astros – Mark Appel, RHP (Stanford) Why: The Astros don’t appear like the team who is going to go for the risky homerun pick No. 1 overall with Buxton. Appel is having a fine season for Stanford so I think they’ll play this one “safe”.Previous Mock: Mark Appel 2. Minnesota […]
You know, with all the excitement to the start of this Mets season, I never got a chance to post our MMO 2012 Predictions. I ended up selecting the Rays, Tigers and Rangers as division winners in the American League with the Angels and Red Sox earning the two Wild Card spots. In the National League I went with the Phillies, Cardinals and Giants winning their divisions, and the Marlins and Mets notching those Wild […]
