The Mets Are Rolling, But Where Have We Seen This Act Before

The Mets are off to a fast start - with Matt Harvey, Bartolo Colon and Jon Niese going a combined 10 - 0 so far in their starts.  Add in a great start for Jacob deGrom, and this club has the bet record in the MLB.  The news is not all good though, with injuries to David Wright. Travis d'Arnaud and many key pitchers, it is only a matter of time before their depth is tested.  It should be the brass's job to add more depth to this club via trade, but that wont be the case.  The Mets also play stiffer competition in the next 2 weeks.  Are they 13 - 4 good?  Probably not, but if they ca go the rest of the year .500, they should nail down a playoff spot with 85 -86 wins in the NL.

The Mets lost their 1st game in 12 contests last night versus the Yankees.  Sure, they own the best record in the Majors at 13 – 4, but are they really this good?

The answer is no.  Don’t get me wrong, the club out of Flushing Meadows, NY is decisively better than they have been since moving into Citi Field.   The basis of me saying they are not better is due to injury troubles.

Zack Wheeler is out for the year with Tommy John Surgery, along with Josh Edgin from the Relief Core.  Add in the suspension to Jenrry Mejia, with waiting for Bobby Parnell, and the clubs pitching should be less equal than they were in 2014.

David Wright and Travis d’Arnaud are also on the DL. Read the rest of this entry

Seattle Is Poised For 2015 Dominance: But Off To A Slow Start

 

Seattle was everyone's pick to win the American League it seemed. A slow start mirrored the beginning of the 2014 season as well.  There are some outliers though, as they spent 10 of their 1st 13 games on the road.  The club has looked a lot better of the last week. included in that were awesome starts by Felix Hernandez.  Nelson Cruz has also picked up where he left off in 2014, with an MLB leading 9 HRs and 18 RBI in the teams first 16 games.

Forgive me for a second while I didn’t lose sleep on the Mariners losing Chris Taylor for some time early this year  I actually think that Brad Miller may have a chance to breakout this year.

But more importantly Seattle had themselves a great offseason.  Yes.. you read that right.  I am endorsing Jack Z. for a job well done, even though he saw fit to sign Endy Chavez and Franklin Gutierrez for yet one more year.  But since the club is full with depth, I am hoping the guys wont be counted on.

Last year the club had to start the year without Hisashi Iwakuma, James Paxton and Taijuan Walker for the majority of the 1st half, and while Paxton has still been bothered my a flexor strain early in the year, his arsenal speaks to the of an ace. Read the rest of this entry

How John Hart Is Quickly Fixing The Braves

The Braves GM has traded the entire OF, shed payroll, and tried to stockpile the Minor Leagues with a boatload of prospects - that should coincide with the opening for the new ballpark in 2017.  The transformation has been swift and just.

How John Hart is quickly fixing the Braves

When you think of the Atlanta Braves you think of three things:

Their dominant pitching once composed of Hall of Fame trio Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine, and John Smoltz.
Their former brash manager Bobby Cox.
The face of this franchise since Hank Aaron Chipper Jones.

They were perennially the best team in the NL for about 15 years and they are looking to get back to that especially once their new stadium opens in Cobb County in 2017. Read the rest of this entry

Chris Rock gave a hilarious if depressing rant about the lack of interest of African Americans on baseball. And along the way made some interesting observations about nostalgia.

I can’t speak for being African American. But I can say that baseball needs to build on a solid foundation to open its appeal and maybe not be so afraid to have fun.

Alex Rodriguez homered twice and drove in 4, including the game winning run with an RBI 8th inning single as he led the Yankees to a 5-4 win in Tampa Bay.

Wil Myers stole the spotlight in Chicago with a 3-4 performance including a controversial 3 run shot that ultimately gave the Padres a 5-4 decision against the Cubs,.

David Price pitched 8 strong innings, letting up just 4 hits and 1 walk. He did not get the decision but his great performance set up Detroit’s walk off 9th inning rally to beat the White Sox, 2-1.

Josh Collmenter not only threw a complete game 4 hit 1 walk shut out against the Giants, but he helped lead the Diamondbacks offense with a 3-5 day, complete with a run scored and driven in.
