Is 200 Innings The Be-All-End-All For Starting Pitchers?

How valuable is Mike Pelfrey to the Mets rotation?

When the 4-time all-star inked his 6-year $106 million deal with the Marlins, the general idea was that the Mets offense would be left in shambles.

Will Justin Turner Get Caught In A Numbers Game

As was reported on MMO yesterday, the New York Mets have signed defensive-minded shortstop Ronny Cedeno to a one-year, $1.1 million dollar contract. Cedeno, 28, was the Pirates starting shortstop since they acquired him in 2009. In 313 games for the Bucs, Cedeno batted a meager .254/.297/.367/.664 in 1,126 plate appearances. Obviously he’s here for one purpose […]

If Zambrano is in shape, physically, mentally and emotionally, he’ll make the Marlins better. But, I’m not ready to put a Dream Team label on the Marlins. We’ve seen […]
