Mike Trout is having a season for the ages. The kind of season that has baseball fans checking the box score in the newspaper to see what he did the night before, and team executives scratching their heads wondering how they missed on this kid. If you turned on ESPN last year, the only time you would hear the word trout, was during one of those outdoors shows. It’s funny how things change in a […]
With the Nationals acquisition of Edwin Jackson yesterday, we need to start seriously considering them as legitimate contenders to not only have a good season, but to potentially win the NL East or at minimum steal a wild card berth. With their off season additions the Nationals will have a very well rounded and talented starting rotation. A rotation of Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Edwin Jackson, Jordan Zimmermann and John Lannan spells trouble for NL East and the rest of the National […]
The Mets end up losing 6-5 to the Nationals on a walk-off hit for Pudge Rodriguez off of closer Frankie Rodriguez in the bottom of the ninth. It’s the 10th time the Mets gave up the lead in the opposing team’s final at bats. Game Summary R.A. Dickey gets back to his impressive pitching streak after receiving his first loss of the season his last time out. Dickey easily out pitched his rubber mate Stephen Strasburg. Dickey […]
All of us have come to love the uplifting and inspirational story of a rookie making good on his promise. Case in point, Ike Davis. When that rookie comes with superstar billing, it becomes universal and even historical. The past few weeks Major League Baseball was introduced to the 2010 edition of this story when Stephen Strasburg of the Washington Nationals made his major league debut against the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates. Doug Thorburn of the […]
Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little. I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away. But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the Mets’ division and will most likely be facing our team a lot over the next few years. I’m bummed out […]
As we all sit back and wait for Omar Minaya to make that blockbuster trade or signing, only to see him sign more mediocre players, reality is starting to set in. If this hot stove pattern continues — and I’m sorry, Minaya has given us no reason to believe otherwise – the Mets in 2010 could easily be a fourth place team, and maybe even fifth. First of all, the Phillies are not exactly going […]
Much has been made about the Nationals not having reached a deal with the top pick in this years Amateur Draft, Stephen Strasburg. Despite an apparent record setting bonus on the table, Strasburg on the advice of his agent Scott Boras, wants more… much, much more. Chico Harlan of the Washington Post writes, The record-setting deal that the Washington Nationals have offered to No. 1 draft pick Stephen Strasburg will have to grow if Strasburg […]
Atlanta Braves: (2-2; -6.5) The Braves went 2-2 against the Pittsburgh Pirates, and will open up an interleague series against the Baltimore Orioles. Tommy Hanson has the start tonight. Florida Marlins: (2-2; -8) The Marlins split their series with the St. Louis Cardinals. With this past week’s draft, they selected Chad James, a power pitcher from Oklahoma. James has a letter of intent with Oklahoma St., but will opt for the Marlins instead. The Marlins […]
