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.

Mets get first-hand experience against all-righty bullpen

Generally speaking, Interleague games are not my favorites. My preference is for a balanced schedule and you simply cannot have that with Interleague games.
