An article by posted on November 12, 2009 0 Comments

Carlos Beltran has always been a soft-spoken leader, preferring to lead by example rather than through rah-rah histrionics.  Throughout his career, he has been a player that has done everything well on the field.  He can hit for average (.325 in 2009, career .283 hitter), hit for power (franchise record-tying 41 HR in 2006), steal […]

Omar Minaya was hired prior to the 2005 season to turn around the floundering New York Mets.  The team and its management were in chaos.  The Mets had completed three consecutive losing seasons with 86, 95, and 91 losses.  The low point occurred in 2004 when the Mets traded top prospect Scott Kazmir for Victor […]

Interesting news here on Adrian Gonzalez.  Chris Ello at 619Sports.net (a blog that discusses San Diego sports) has noticed that the Padres did not include any photos of slugging first baseman Adrian Gonzalez in the ticket brochures they mailed out to past season ticket holders.  It seems like an odd move for the Padres to […]
