SCOTT RICE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mets Remain Confident They’ll Acquire Lefty Reliever In Coming Week

Henny Penny and the necessity of lefty relievers

Anyone familiar with the children’s tale Henny Penny knows the moral of the story: Beware of those who predict calamity, especially with zero justification.

Few things will have less of a positive impact on the 2015 Mets than the success...

Three reasons why re-signing Scott Rice is a good move

The New York Mets are in the market to fill a few holes at the winter meetings. The most talked about has been a short stop, however, just slightly less discussed is a left-handed reliever to compliment Josh Edgin.
