Is It Time For A Mike Pelfrey Encore?

Could the New York Mets’ desperate need for starting pitching lead them back to Mike Pelfrey? Seriously. Should GM Sandy Alderson decided there’s not much in the free-agent market, and with the Twins moving faster than the Mets regarding Bronson Arroyo, there are probably worse ideas than re-signing Pelfrey. Pelfrey, released by the Twins, made $4 million last […]

Rockies Will Not Trade Tulowitzki

Just in case you didn’t believe it when Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort swore he wouldn’t trade Troy Tulowitzki two weeks ago… And just in case you thought Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd was blowing smoke in September when he responded, “no chance” after he was asked if he would trade Tulo… Rockies Senior VP Bill Geivett completed […]

Featured Post: Selling High & Buying Low – The Sandy Alderson Philosophy

2013 Season Review: Ike Davis, 1B

IKE DAVIS, 1B PRESEASON EXPECTATIONS After missing most of the 2011 season with an ankle injury, Davis struggled for much of the first half but avoided a trip to the minor leagues with the promise of the 19 homers he slugged in his 2010 rookie season when he finished seventh in the Rookie of the […]

Featured Post: The Mets Have A Duda Dilemma

Lucas Duda frustrates the hell out of me. I know he’s a saber and front office darling by virtue of his .352 on-base, but he’s an awful hitter whose getting worse at the plate instead of better. Honestly, I couldn’t care less about how many walks our clean-up hitter has, I want to see him […]

Matt Harvey And The Velocity Trap

Wouldn’t it be great if Matt Harvey wasn’t really injured? If it was just some sort of minor strain that was blown way out of proportion by Dan Warthen, Ray Ramirez and “Dr. James Andrews?” A coaching staff conspiracy if you will? In lieu of imposing hard innings limits on Harvey and Zack Wheeler perhaps […]
