Time to Worry About Santana, Bay?

Time to Worry About Santana, Bay?

I am not a worrier by nature. I always say, “Don’t worry. Things will work out just fine.” And usually, things do. But sometimes things don’t. For example, last year at this time, we were saying about David Wright: “Don’t worry. Things will work out just fine.” Well, things didn’t — he ended the year […]

Mets in Hunt For Cliff Lee

Mets in Hunt For Cliff Lee

The Mets are said to be in the thick of things in the hunt for Cliff Lee. The Seattle Times is reporting that the Mets and the Twins are the frontrunners thus far. Of course, the Yankees could always swoop in and piss everybody off, as they often do, but right now the Mets are right […]

Ump Robs Perfect Game From Armando Galarraga

It was without a doubt the most unfair, heartbreaking thing I’ve ever seen in a baseball game. Wednesday night, Detroit Tigers starter Armando Galarraga was one out away from a perfect game — a perfect game – when the Indians Jason Donald hit a slow roller right of first base. Miguel Cabrera made the play, threw to Galarraga who was […]

Which Liar to Believe?

Which Liar to Believe?

Whom do you believe when one liar tells a story, and another liar denies it? It’s a tough spot, but at least there’s a hapless reporter to help further things along. In this case, the liars are agent Scott Boras and the Mets organization, and the hapless reporter is, of course, Peter Gammons. According to […]
