Ramon Ramirez gets the Win but Jeremy Hefner earns a QS

The Mets used four pitchers last night and the one who likely did the worst job on the night – Ramon Ramirez – came away with the Win. That’s the way it goes sometimes because no statistic is perfect. The annoying thing is that many people will forgive the imperfections of certain stats, like Wins, yet are not willing to give other stats a chance because they focus only...

Mets pitcher Ramon Ramirez injured celebrating Johan Santana’s no-hitter

It was a night of celebration at Citi Field after Johan Santana notched the Mets’ first-ever no-hitter on Friday. But as Santana’s teammates rushed from the dugout after he secured the final out to congratulate him, one Mets player went maybe a little too hard in the celebrating.

Giants looking to trade Jeremy Affeldt or Ramon Ramirez

I don’t even know what to say. The Giants are spending little money this offseason, but decided to commit ~$10MM to two lefty relievers. When they re-signed Javier Lopez and exercised Jeremy Affeldt‘s option, I thought it was a bit excessive and unnecessary. Apparently the Giants took a month to realize that, and are now trying to clear up some of the money they have invested...
