Mateo Had Tommy John Surgery This Week

According to Matt Eddy of Baseball America, Mets prospect Luis Mateo had Tommy John Surgery this week after making just four appearances this season. This feels like it’s coming out of left field…It’s not as surprising as I make it seem because injury experts were actually expecting him to have TJ surgery at the time […]

I always felt that Parnell had the most hittable 98-mph fastball in the history of the game. I personally was ready to give up on him last year, and suggested it was […]

Wheeler Pitching Better, Montero Pitching Worse, And The Smoking Gun

  Rafael Montero was hotter than Scarlett Johansson in her Black Widow costume for his first four starts of the season, compiling three wins, 27 strikeouts and only one walk. Zack Wheeler was as cold as ice, struggling to find command and his first win of the year. The two men may be the brightest […]
