MLB Trade Rumors posted some new information regarding pending free agent Shin-Soo Choo who has been connected to the Mets by various MLB executives in recent weeks. On of those baseball executives told Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, Choo could fetch as much as $90-$100 million on the open market this winter. Shockingly, Choo’s agent, Scott Boras, believes that figure to be too low. “As a custom of the industry, prognostications by executives this time of year are […]
After a brilliant 16-year career, outfielder Vladimir Guerrero announced his retirement this weekend, according to Hector Gomez of the Dominican Listin Diario. While he never made it to those almost automatic Hall of Fame thresholds of 3,000 hits or 500 home runs, it will be hard to keep his .318/.379/.553 career slash line out of Cooperstown. Guerrero was one of the most dominating players of his eras. In his remarkable career, Vlad had eight 30+ home […]
A couple of nights ago I’m on Facebook checking out a page for fellow Mets fans. We’re all rejoicing in the Yankees misery. I, too, add a few comments and threw in a joke about ‘A-Roid.’ Someone else commented about us playing spoiler and knocking the Nats further back. Then, it hit me. This is what we’ve become. We have nothing hopeful to cheer for, so yet again this season, we are reduced to the role of spoiler. […]
I thought you might find this interesting. According to CBS 58, suspended Milwaukee Brewers Outfielder Ryan Braun is calling Brewers season ticket holders to apologize. “Hey there’s a guy on the phone claiming to be Ryan Braun, it’s probably one of your buddies messing with you.” That’s exactly what Kelly’s Bleachers owner Pat Guenther thought Thursday afternoon. He picked up the phone thinking it’d be a joke. “Hey Pat this is Ryan Braun,” Guenther recalls. […]

Matt Harvey is going to miss a significant amount of time; not much else is known at this moment. What has been well-documented however, is just how much of an impact the Dark Knight of Gotham has had on the New York Mets organization and their fans alike. The mood surrounding this franchise has plunged further and further into disappointment, animosity and frustration ever since Adam Wainwright‘s infamous breaking ball struck the black leather of […]
There are bad ways to win and good ways to lose. What’s interesting and troubling is that it’s not always clear which is which. — Grimsley, Pokemon Is it not really known why humans love to classify everything into black and white categories? Maybe it’s just easier to minimize everything down into it’s most simplistic form. When it comes down to it, the vast majority of major league baseball players have never played in a World […]
Thoughts from Joe D. I will be very shocked if the Toronto Blue Jays hang onto Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s general manager after this season. He took a team with a talent rich farm that was once ranked among baseball’s best and overturned it for aging and expensive players that have sunk the team to the bottom of the division instead of the top as he had hoped. A new GM will quickly look […]
