By this point, everyone has heard that Sandy Alderson alluded to the fact that arguably the Mets’ best offensive prospect, Wilmer Flores, will be given time at shortstop this spring. We have been hearing for years that Flores was moved away from the position due to a lack of range. Flores, now 22, hasn’t played […]

Robinson Cano: With All Due “Respect”

Robinson Cano and Jay Z’’s orchestrated dinner with the New York Mets was clearly transparent, made even more so after his introductory press conference in Seattle.

Brandon Nimmo, Gavin Cecchini, and a Yankee Lesson

A good friend of mine recently sent her only child, a son, off to college. I remember those times as heart wrenching moments when each of my three children left the nest. To occupy my mind, I would usually wrap myself around some kind of project.
