So, there will be a weird 60-game season that is fashioned for younger people, but most younger people hate baseball, so now Rob Manfred has alienated the base that loves the sport, not all of it but a large percentage. What has the sport done to say they will be
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
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
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
It’s nice to have starting pitching. It’s arguable that having great starting pitching wins championships. The Mets didn't during the time they had Matt Harvey (gone), Jacob deGrom, Noah Syndergaard, Steven Matz, and Zack Wheeler. There was a time a few years ago that most smart fans knew they would
This winter has been a whirlwind for Mets fans. Nobody believed they were “really” in on Bryce Harper, so they could easily ignore that. Many shook their heads as they chose Travis d’Arnaud over Wilmer Flores, but that’s still small potatoes. Trying to acquire Robinson Cano seems to be just
This isn’t R.A. Dickey we’re talking about here. That trade was explainable, and Noah Syndergaard was a part of that deal. Top prospect, Travis d’arnaud was the jewel of the deal. At least that’s what the Mets thought and so far it’s been the opposite and it will stay that
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
When the Mets decided they could compete next year and that’s why weren’t trading Jacob deGrom or Zack Wheeler, they promptly went out and lost 25-4 to the Washington Nationals.
The likelihood of the Mets signing Jacob deGrom to a team-friendly deal after the season he’s having is the longest of
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
