The ratings for this World Series, which has been compelling, are down but should pick up by Game 6, which is a certainty. I’m betting on a Game 7, the game’s ultimate gem. But, that’s not enough for Maj0r League Baseball because the East Coast giants aren’t involved. With MLB’s penchant for panic and knee jerk reaction, I am beginning to wonder what the response will be. Tinkering has already done damage to the credibility of […]
After all the jokes made at the Mets expense over the last few years, some of you might enjoy this departure from that. Nice to see another team getting treated like the punchline to a bad joke. Hat tip to Ryan O’Hara.
C.J. Wilson According to Jon Heyman of SI.com, one GM said he envisioned a $75 million, five-year deal for Rangers ace C.J. Wilson. “He has been a bomb in this postseason, but the laws of supply and demand still help”, he writes. One GM suggested Wilson would do better with a non-playoff team because of his better regular-season performance. Mets anyone? I’ve already shared my thoughts on Wilson a few times in the last few weeks. […]
There was only one player that was inducted into the Hall of Fame from 1940 to 1944 in honor of those that had to put their careers on hold and go abroad to defend the United States in World War II. Who was the one player worthy enough of being inducted during this time? Second baseman Rogers Hornsby, one of the most prolific right-handed hitters in MLB history. During his 23 seasons in Major League […]
With the news that Theo Epstein has departed Bean-Town for Chi-Town to go and run the Cubs, I can’t help thinking that this move will impact the Mets in many adverse ways. For one, in the short term, Sandy Alderson will now be competing with Theo in scouring the free agent rolls looking for under-valued players that they can add to bolster their over-budget and under-performing rosters. Both teams are both in dire straits – […]
John Dennis of WEEI Sports Radio is reporting that Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein has agreed with the Cubs on a five-year deal worth more than $15 million. According to Dennis’ sources, the Red Sox granted the Cubs permission to talk with Epstein late last week. The deal is expected to be finalized by the end of this week, following negotiations for compensation with the Red Sox, who have Epstein under contract for one more […]
Ha ha ha I couldn’t resist. This from Doug Padilla at ESPNChicago.com:. The White Sox will name Mark Parent and Joe McEwing to the coaching staff of new manager Robin Ventura, a source indicated Monday. McEwing has spent the last four seasons with the White Sox, managing Triple-A Charlotte this past season. Known as a people person, McEwing also can be stern when he needs to be while still maintaining the respect of those around him. McEwing, […]
This is a well produced parody of the movie trailer for Moneyball from NBC’s Saturday Night Live. Good stuff… Gives a whole new meaning to small ball… Hat tip to Joe Janish of Mets Today who adds, “Some might argue that this commercial parody is more historically correct than the movie starring Brad Pitt.” How The West Was Won?
