Why does it still exist? With the way the baseball is, and the fact that everyone is mashing, why bother having pitchers that you don’t really trust in your bullpen, but you’ll bring them in when there’s a huge lead because who cares?
The Mets lost a six-run lead yesterday in
The Mets lucked into Jeff McNeil being their leadoff hitter and the best one they've had in years. For many years they couldn’t fill the position and they had the guy in the organization all along. Many times, the best moves the Mets make are born out of desperation or
I kept hearing that the Mets would never trade with the Yankees. That they were cowards. Well, today they would have traded Zack Wheeler to the Yankees if they had the best offer. A trade never happened, and my guess is, the Yankees didn’t offer enough. They didn’t offer enough
Sports radio loves to bring up Pete Rose. They love to get callers talking about his artifacts residing in the Hall. What neither likes to talk about is the fact that in MLB dugouts the first thing you see a sign posted that there is no gambling in baseball.

The Phillies will travel to play the Mets to see who looks worse heading into the All-Star break. It’s no longer the mid-summer Classic because we’ve surpassed the halfway point in games. July 4th is a good barometer for how teams are doing, and both of these teams aren’t doing
Reactions to Part I were so effusive, that Part II is here for your enjoyment. Reactions always welcomed.
THE WALKING MAN Eddie Yost played nearly two decades in the major leagues. His lifetime batting average was only .254, but that didn't keep him off the bases. Yost coaxed pitchers into
This isn’t a series preview. Both teams are playing horrible baseball. That’s the preview.
The Phillies have lost seven straight and were swept by the Marlins. Gabe Kapler has tried Bryce Harper as a leadoff hitter and he’s making his players laugh when he talks about what he’ll do next. Harper
