Who says you can’t go home again? The Chicago White Sox have just announced former Mets third baseman Robin Ventura as their new manager. Ventura, 44, agreed to a multiyear deal with the club after working the past season as a special advisor to director of player development Buddy Bell. “When I met with the media as our season ended, I identified one person at the very top of my managerial list,” general manager Ken […]
As the Brewers find themselves with a 2-0 lead in the NLDS and on the verge of advancing to the NLCS, consider these comments General Manager Doug Melvin made two weeks ago regarding sabermetrics. “I think there’s a point where people are looking to find the new stat. It’s like going into a science lab and looking for the new experiment. I don’t think there’s any perfect model that you can find based on strictly […]
I’m looking forward to these playoffs more than any other playoffs since, well, 2006. All four series are evenly matched and real tough to predict, but I’m going to try, anyway. ALDS The New York Yankees and the Detroit Tigers. The key to this series will be Game 2. CC Sabathia and Justin Verlander are about as evenly matched as you can get and should be co-Cy Young Award winners in fairness to both of […]
Coming off a postseason berth, the 2010 Rays were gutted beyond comprehension. Their star left fielder and sparkplug Carl Crawford left for Boston. Their shut down closer Rafael Soriano, now sporting pinstripes. Carlos Pena going to the windy city, Matt Garza and Jason Bartlett dealt for prospects, and a bullpen left in tatters. All that they got to replace these cornerstone players was a past-his-prime outfielder and a few relievers. Yet some how, some way, […]
Just one day after the Red Sox suffered a season ending collapse that saw them miss the post season by just one game, Jon Heyman reports that the Red Sox and manager Terry Francona will part ways. [blackbirdpie url="https://twitter.com/#!/SI_JonHeyman/status/119765962315661312"] According to MLBTR, Francona’s three-year, $12M deal included club options for 2012-13 worth $8.75M in total ($750K buyout) and the Red Sox could announce their decision to decline the options today. Francona led the Red Sox to […]
Nothing better than seeing Chipper and the Braves licking their wounds after their playoff hopes vanished into nothingness on Wednesday night. After closer Craig Kimbrel blew his second save of the series in the ninth inning, the Philadelphia Phillies scored on Hunter Pence’s two-out single in the 13th inning for a 4-3 win that ended the Braves’ season and completed their record September collapse. The Braves lost their final five games and 13 of their last 18 […]
I want to push all the Mets stuff aside for at least one small post, to mention something going on in the world of Major League Baseball that i think we should look at (and NO it doesn’t involve “hat-gate”). We’ve seen Sandy Koufax win 25 games and go onto win the MVP and Cy Young that season. We now have the opportunity to witness a pitcher reaching the 25 win plateau again, joining the […]
When the Mets fell to 61-68 I began to think about how bad this might get. They had fought so hard all season long, and now the injuries were finally starting to take their toll on this young roster. The guys like Turner, Tejada, and Gee among others were beginning to get exposed playing everyday and this team would spiral out of control to another terrible record. As it turned out, the opposite happened. The […]
