CHEATER, LIAR, SUSPENDED, JUSTICE! Updated By Clayton Collier: The 65-game ban of Ryan Braun was negotiated by him, MLBPA and MLB. Major League Baseball was looking for a suspension beyond 2013, says ESPN’s T.J. Quinn, however Braun was able to get it reduced to the remainder of the current season. Sources tell OTL MLB confronted Braun with volumes of evidence provided by Tony Bosch, including texts. — T.J. Quinn (@TJQuinnESPN) July 22, 2013 If plan […]
Bob Raissman of the Daily News ripped into Matt Harvey in his Sunday column and asked him to not to blame the media for any of the blow-back from his rendezvous with the glamorous lifestyle of the rich and famous. Matt Harvey says he wants to be like Derek Jeter. He’s acting more like Alex Rodriguez , which is the last thing the Mets, desperate for a positive image, need. Harvey’s nude modeling in ESPN The Magazine, and […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News, spoke to a person with direct knowledge of the team’s thinking who said that the Mets are more likely to keep Marlon Byrd this summer, rather than trade him before the Trade Deadline on July 31. We can debate the pros and cons of that, but I want to discuss Byrd in a different context for now. When you think about a player that deserves to be MLB Comeback […]
As Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported yesterday from a team source, Bill Madden of the Daily News, confirms that the Mets may not be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline. The article also quotes a major league scout who hypothesizes that the Mets could be tempted to deal Bobby Parnell to the Red Sox for outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. and a top pitching prospect, but then also adds that if they want […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News weighs in on the problem with hype, projection, unrealised expectations, and something about Mike Pelfrey being the devil. It is dehumanizing, what happens to phenoms like Zack Wheeler over the long arc of a professional baseball career. In the minor leagues, you are an abstraction, a blank screen onto which fans and media project hopes that have little to do with who you actually are. Then you arrive in […]
John Harper of the Daily News, puts up a strong case for why the Mets should bring back Terry Collins as manager of the team after this season. The thrust of his argument is that Collins was never given a true chance to show what he can do with a team that was at worst a .500 team and at best a legitimate contender. Despite arguing about Collins’ in-game decision-making he writes, the criticism of […]
Andy Martino of the Daily News is reporting that a source told him the Mets do not intend to trade Bobby Parnell as the trade deadline approaches and consider him to be a “valuable” piece for the team. Martino says this supports Alderson’s claim that he could be a buyer at the trade deadline and not a seller which many expected to be the case. The GM’s decision not to shop the closer speaks to […]
In an article that was highly critical of the New York Mets, Bob Raissman of the Daily News pondered how challenging it must be for SNY to broadcast Mets games and still keep the viewers from tuning out. With no end to the Mets’ ineptitude and misery in sight, their broadcasters are the only entertaining element left. They won’t be able to stop the ratings from tanking, no set of voices can do that, but […]
Bill Madden of the Daily News with the sobering reality most Met fans probably don’t want to hear: There were 21,747 gluttons for punishment at Citi Field Sunday for the conclusion of another Mets-Marlins series, which now qualify for the worst baseball on the planet. Not satisfied with having tortured their fans for 20 innings of record-tying ineptitude the day before, the Mets lost in similar fashion — just not so long in doing it […]
