The Splits

The Mets are winding down the season in less than spectacular fashion. They completed a doubleheader against the Nationals on Thursday because it was on the schedule. They won the first game against Nationals’ spot starter Blake Treinen. Then they faced a better pitcher and got three hits. And so it goes. What everybody will be talking about is this: Matt Harvey at Yankees game...

Nats fall second consecutive game, lose to Mets 6-1

Fortunately for the Washington Nationals, the time they picked to lose two straight is the time the Atlanta Braves remain on a downward spiral.  Even with two straight losses, the Nats maintain their 3 games lead in the National League East.   Once again, the inconsistent Nats offense reared its ugly head in a 6-1 lass to division rival New York Mets.

MLB Game Picks - Tuesday: May 27, 2014

I had a wonderful weekend with my wife and enjoyed myself. While I was doing so, the game picks were withering on the vine (cliche alert). Yesterday was awful. Jeff Samardzija won a game. The Red Sox won a game. The Yankees beat the Cardinals. None of which I picked to happen. The latter was the game of the day, which is back to two games under .500. And that is just a little of...
