The Mets signed Curtis Granderson Friday to a four year, $60 million deal. One thing is for sure, he can hit. But there’s only one problem with that. Granderson has played his whole career thus far in the American League, revealing uncertainty when it comes to facing the National League. Let’s take a look at how he has fared against the NL East and where his 43 2012 home runs would have landed in opponents’ […]
Ah it’s that time of year again… A time for new beginnings, a time for change, and for most it is a time for optimism. Yes, it’s time for that kooky year end ritual otherwise known as the Hot Stove Season – or as many Mets fans in the past five years like to say - PURGATORY!!! Once again, many Met fans have bought in to ownership’s promises of the team spending more money than it did last […]

The Atlanta Braves announced Monday they will leave Turner Field and move into a 42,000-seat, $672 million stadium about 10 miles from downtown Atlanta in 2017. Braves executives John Schuerholz, Mike Plant and Derek Schiller said the team decided not to seek another 20-year lease at Turner Field and began talks with the Cobb Marietta Coliseum and Exhibit Hall Authority in July. The Braves released a statement to the fans on their website. “The reason for moving […]
The Rangers are letting teams know they will consider trading infielders Ian Kinsler, Elvis Andrus and highly regarded shortstop prospect Jurickson Profar, according to major league sources. They have also made it clear to other teams they are not trying to dump salary and are adamantly opposed to picking up any part of a contract in order to facilitate a trade. They have been in touch with other clubs, and general manager Jon Daniels is looking for […]
On Thursday, the MLB Network announced that they’ve hired Ron Darling as an analyst for the 2013-2014 Hot Stove Season. Darling, fresh off his stint as a postseason analyst for TBS, has become a very hot commodity in the broadcast world. His savvy insights and keen intellect serve him well as an analyst and he always comes off looking like the smartest guy in the booth. The two-time Emmy Award winning analyst, has been entertaining Met […]
A few weeks ago I did something all Mets fans do nowadays: I sat down to watch other teams play in the post-season. I had my Mets cap on, a can of Coke, some pretzels. And within 5 minutes I heard news that surprised me. The Indians were returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2007 (as if that was a long time). The Indians? Really??? Cleveland, ‘The Mistake by the Lake,’ was […]
Commissioner Sandy Alderson? I get this question asked a lot, and three years ago I would have said yes. But a lot’s happened since then and today I don’t even see him being among the top five contenders. There was a great article on this topic about three months ago by Jayson Stark of ESPN.com, who begins by saying that after so many previous occasions over the years in which Bud Selig has hinted at […]
When I heard this morning, that the Atlanta Braves did not include second baseman Dan Uggla on their National League Divisional Series roster, my first inclination was that he was hurt. He wasn’t. The Braves did not include the three-time All-Star on their 25-man roster because of his .179 batting average – the lowest among major league qualifiers this season. Uggla, now 33, hit 22 home runs this season for the Braves, which ranked third on the team, and […]
