Can The Mets Afford To Carry Marlon Anderson?

An article by posted on February 7, 2009

In 2007, Marlon Anderson parlayed a .319 average in just 60 at-bats into a two year deal worth $2.2 million dollars. Not bad for a bench player who had hit .231 in the first half of that season before being cut by the Dodgers and signed from the scrap heap by Omar Minaya. Last season, […]

Further more, if a player has more than 45 days on a Major League roster before September 1st, he […]

What A View From the Top!

An article by posted on August 15, 2008

After doing what was expected necessary, our New York Metropolitans find themselves sitting atop the NL East. Clutch hitting, a stellar rotation, and a bullpen that saves games (for a change) all played pivotal roles this week. It also helped that Manny was being Manny in L.A. instead of Boston. And I would also like […]

The more I think about it, the more I am becoming convinced that our catching situation will be a strength for the Mets in 2008. I was one of Paul Lo Duca’s biggest supporters and rallied hard for the Mets to re-sign him. Now that he is gone, I think I have to admit that […]
