Freddy Garcia Will Be A Big Sleeper This Season

An article by posted on February 8, 2009

If you were like me, you probably didn’t even bat an eyelash when you heard that the Mets signed starting pitcher Freddy Garcia. I just looked at it as another one of those classic Omar Minaya moves. You know the ones.. Minaya has become quite adept at resurrecting the careers of players who were left on […]

An article by posted on December 10, 2008

I read an interesting post this morning by Andrew Das of the NY Times. In it he wonders what uniform number Francisco Rodriguez will don as a member of the New York Mets. The one he wore with the Angels, No. 57, is out because it belongs to Johan Santana, a fellow Venezuelan. While acknowledging that […]

Sure, in realistic terms they have grasp of the NL East lead, by a thread, but nonetheless, they sit atop the standings.
