The New York Mets have sent beleaguered starter-turned-reliever-turned distraction Oliver Perez to the DL (knee tendinitis) to make room for starter Jonathon Niese. Adam Rubin reported yesterday that others players thought Ollie’s knee was “messed up.” The move ends the firestorm, both public and private, over what the Mets should do with their $36 million […]

How do you handle a 7th overall pick? Do you take the best player available, or the safe pick? Do you take the high-upside high school player, or the more advanced college player? Pitcher or hitter?

Let me start out by saying that I thoroughly enjoyed myself at the game in Milwaukee on Sunday, in which the Mets salvaged a game and avoided a sweep to a team that previously had a horrible home record.  We recently moved to Madison and a friend with Brewers season tickets invited my wife, 2-year […]

Thank you all for your kind responses to yesterday’s Righty preview. Today, we’ll look at the southpaws who could be possible considerations in the top seven. Drew Pomeranz: Pomeranz has had a fair degree of buzz on this site, the only question is whether he possibly falls to 7th. Pomeranz throws a low-to-mid 90’s fastball, […]
