Terry Collins Is MLB’s Oldest Manager

With the retirement of 68-year-old Jim Leyland, and the departure of Charlie Manuel in recent months, 64-year-old Terry Collins becomes the oldest manager in the majors, writes Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Collins has invested almost 43 years into the game in various capacities, and while he’s the elder statesman for now, he;s never […]

Featured Post: A Dying Brand

A few minutes ago, I was scrolling through MLB Trade Rumors when I noticed some Yankees’ notes. Turns out the Yanks, long believed to be trying to climb under the luxury-tax threshold, are going to spend this winter. (I know – pick up your jaw) The clip listed their preferred targets as Masahiro Tanaka, Brian […]

Beltran Could Be Heading To The Bronx, Was Irked By Puig’s Antics In NLCS

Carlos Beltran, who has become one of the most clutch players in postseason history (except for that one night at Shea), could be on the Yankees’ radar this winter, a move the former Met will strongly consider, sources tell Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News. According to multiple sources, the Yankees could be […]

Death.  Taxes.  Beltran.

Some people live for the big game.  Joe Montana saved his best efforts for the many NFC Championship Games and Super Bowls he won.  Michael Jordan was excellent at sinking clutch shots and the spirits of opposing teams in his six NBA Finals victories.  (I’m a Utah Jazz fan.  I should know.)  And then there’s […]

Hits & Misses: Tron Has Become Mythical, Chasing Unicorns, Fix My Team

Last night, Carlos Beltran continued to cement his status as one of the greatest post season players of all time with yet another incredible performance. Having already delivered a two-run double to tie Game 1 of the NLCS at 2-2, the former Met would hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the 13th inning to […]

Hits & Misses: Beltran To The Phillies? Tulo and CarGo Are Going Nowhere?

I read some scuttlebutt last night about the Philadelphia Phillies possibly honing in on free agent to be Carlos Beltran this winter. If every free-agent signee were able to guarantee a replication of the previous year’s performance, Beltran would be No. 1 on the Phillies’ list. In 600 plate appearances for the Cardinals in 2013, […]

Daniel Murphy Appreciation Day

Before I begin, let me preface this by saying that if you’re not a Daniel Murphy supporter, then in all likelihood you will not be a fan of this post.  (And for the record, the title of this piece was suggested by my Gal For All Seasons, so I’m not alone in my appreciation for […]

2013 Season Review: David Wright, 3B

DAVID WRIGHT, 3B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS: As they always are, expectations were high for David Wright, especially after a strong 2012 season, one in which he hit .306 with 21 homers and 93 RBI. And, those were numbers compiled with little protection in the line-up, at least in the first half of the season. They were […]

Beltran Doesn’t Rule Out A Return To The Mets

Carlos Beltran told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he wouldn’t be against a return to the Mets when he becomes a free agent this offseason. “Maybe I’ll see you, maybe I won’t,” Beltran said laughing when asked about a return to the Mets. “I’m going to listen to everybody and we’ll see what […]
