Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports gives us something to think about on a slow news day on this lazy Sunday. He lists the top 20 free agent pitchers after John Lackey. It’s kind of an unspectacular list of choices the Mets may soon face if they fail to land Lackey. I’m not so sure that I would have Pettitte number one, but I guess it just shows how slim the pickings really are after Lackey. […]
According to Bruce Levine of ESPN the Chicago White Sox have signed outfielder Andruw Jones to a one year contract worth $500K with incentives that could bring the value up to $1.5 million dollars. Levine writes that the move was done to soften the blow of losing Scott Podsednik to free agency, but that they currently don’t view Jones as a starting outfielder. The 32-year-old Jones hit .214 last season in 281 at-bats for the Texas Rangers […]
Some sad and alarming news to report this morning out of Venezuela. According to the Associated Press, the mother of former Mets pitcher, Victor Zambrano, was kidnapped from the pitcher’s property late last night. Details of the incident are still very sketchy. Over the past few years, Venezuela has been the target of kidnappers, who look to extort money from the many sports stars that live there, by taking their loved ones hostage. Back in […]

Unfortunately, now the pitcher’s troubles have hit closer to home…literally. Robert Snell at the Detroit News, who also broke the two IRS cases against Ron Darling and Darryl Strawberry, is now reporting that the former Mets pitcher is in danger of having […]
Over the past two decades or so, the Internet has revolutionized the way people live their lives. People are able to reconnect with those old high school buddies from thirty years ago, while browsing their favorite stores all from the palm of their hand simultaneously. More specifically, the Internet has changed the fan’s experience with the world of baseball. In the past, fans had to rely on sporadic television and radio coverage about their team […]
