MMO Fan Shot: A Case To Trade For Josh Bell

An MMO Fan Shot by Jason Bay The case for Josh Bell as I see it is threefold. 1) The longstanding belief that it is having many good players together for as much of their careers as possible, all at the same time that is the critical difference in how high a team can rise. (Think Rollins, Utley, Howard) 2) Combining Bell with Brandon Nimmo is a perfect fit as they compliment each...

Never Mind the Bays — Mets Take Granderson

If you think wins are worth closer to seven million dollars a year, and that Curtis Granderson is a three-win player next year — reasonable assumptions, given the work of some, and the projections we have on our site — then giving him four years and $60 million is not a problem.

A Mets fan’s Thanksgiving poem

One day is there of the season Termed Thanksgiving day, Celebrated part in maybe, Part as yesterday. Neither Alderson nor Wilpon, I do disrespect or praise; Seems it, to my wayward thinking, Unfair in its ways.

Jason Bay: Future Texas Ranger?

Andre Ethier Would Be A Worse Idea For Mets Than Jason Bay Was
