It showed the kind of fire the team possesses even in a bad season. Worst Moment: How they’ve handled Jordany Valdespin. This guy definitely has some personal stuff he needs to work on, but this organization is at fault too. They seem to have no problem throwing him under the bus whether it be sending him out to get pegged or letting the world know he allegedly called his manager a “c**ksucker.” He’s been a PR disaster. R.I.P. El Dramático Joe Spector Best Moment: It comes every 5th day. Worst Moment: Those days in between. Gerry Silverman Best Moment: Mets complete sweep of...

TOC midseason awards: NL Cy Young

The NL Cy Young award, like the AL award, is a two horse race. Kershaw. Harvey. Kershaw. Harvey.
