Mets Bullpen Looked Good for a Short Time

Don’t be fooled by the Mets bullpen. Sure, it had a few good outings outside of the All-Star break but that didn’t mean it was fixed. When you have a player like, Pete Alonso, who could win an MVP award if he was on a winning team, his clutch home

Phillies and Mets Drowning in the NL Least

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

The Real Arms Race

I recall hearing somewhere that hitting a round baseball with a round bat squarely was the hardest thing to do in sports.   Now that we measure launch angles and swing speeds and MPH of every ball hit fair or foul, I think we can say a lot of folks have

The Mets Starting Pitching is About to Fall Apart

It’s nice to have starting pitching. It’s arguable that having great starting pitching wins championships.

You Don’t Trade Players Like Noah Syndergaard

Can the NL Cy Young Race Save Baseball?

Back in 1998, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa’s home run race sparked the sport. Years later we’d learn why, but it did put a focus on what used to be “America’s Pastime”.  Now fast forward to 2018 and the Cy Young race is keeping the sport afloat and I’ll explain

Losing the Superstar Ballplayer

The worst part about sports is when a fan knows they’re losing a great player. Baltimore Orioles fans know that Manny Machado will be wearing a different uniform after the MLB All-Star break. Pittsburgh Pirates fans know the pain. Kansas City Royals do, so many do across a lot of different
