There is also the option of trading Nova at some point if another team is willing to give some prospects.
Nova and Headley for Machado anyone? :p
According to another source he is related to the Dalai Lama :smoking:
I know Montreal very well, the location of the stadium was horrible. There isn't even a metro/subway station nearby let alone an area big enough for parking. Plus the city has changed a lot since...
4 divisions of 4 teams or 2 divisions of 8 teams is the same as long as the best teams W/L wise make it to the playoffs (like in the NBA). The divisions are just for balance of travel and scheduling...
Using wRC+ Duda was the best Mets hitter last year (not counting Cespedes, who will definitely regress) so if he can duplicate his 2015 season the Mets should be happy for what Duda does at the...
I don't get those who say he had a breakout season in 2014, last year he had a better OBP and a better SLG than he did in 2014.
A stint to the DL for sure. The Yankees don't usually take risks when it comes to injuries.
Hopefully somebody else steps up.
Still lots of players available from last year's FA pool btw. I mean how come Greg Holland is yet to sign with anyone? That's crazy.
He is gonna be the Mets best hitter this year
I assume Syndergaard will start game 1 now no?
I like how Thor looked today, he is set to pitch that game 2 on Tuesday April 5th.
ST games are for pitchers to work on certain pitches and working around some issues, not for results.
I never care what the stats say in ST frankly. I remember Ichiro have a horrible ST then...
He is 78 HRs away from Bonds which is the record (asterisk or not). I don't think either Alex or the Yankees are willing to go beyond 2017 just for a record that is not celebrated anymore.
I don't think he'll reach 740 HRs anyways. Age and injuries will probably slow him down first.
I don't know why you have to put Gardner there with Ellsbury as far as injuries. Brett played 145+ games 5 of the last 6 seasons (freak injury in 2012).
Well since the game is in KC and the 2nd is Tuesday while the 3rd one is on Friday (weird schedule). I guess Harvey can pitch the Sunday night game then Syndergaard on Tuesday and deGrom that friday...
deGrom's wife is expecting a baby around that day so I doubt he was an option.
Those who put Cespedes (including the manager) hitting 3rd are insane IMO,
Yoenis averages a .319 OBP in the majors. That's pretty bad for a #3 hitter.
What I would do (using 2015 stats and...
If good or bad calls should be judged based on "who died" then that's a pretty dumb way to judge anything let alone rules.
Goose needs to grow up, it's about time he is not getting any younger.
Frankly Gossage is an idiot if he thinks baseball can be played the same way as in the 70s. Even then he had a beef with Reggie Jakson for the way he added flavor to the game (let alone what he...
I don't get why he has to bring his kid everyday. He is not Bonds or Mays to have that luxury.
He elected free agency and he was then signed in a minor league contract by the Dodgers. He was invited to spring training with them and will try to make the team (check the non-roster invitees list...
I like the Reyes comparison for Mateo (the 2006ish Reyes obviously). Jose in those days was a star.
This is IMO the best yet kinda cheap seat in the stadium, it has everything you can ask for within your budget:
I had them last year, it's in section 420B and...
