A More Mature Carlos Gomez

January 30, 2008 — I remember it like it was yesterday.  The Mets sent Philip Humber, Deolis Geurra, Kevin Mulvey, and Carlos Gomez packing to Minnesota. “Yes!” I thought to myself, “that’s all it takes to acquire Johan Santana, arguably the best pitcher in the game…what a steal.” I believe Humber was considered the centerpiece of the deal, while Gomez was that token...

Kingsport Mets Place Steve Matz on D.L.

Matz On D.L. – Not Serious When I saw the entry on yesterday’s transactions page for the Appalachian League, I got a a little concerned.

Farm Report: 4/14 – Domingo Tapia Was Large And In Charge!

PAWTUCKET 9 – BISONS 6 AAA The Bisons were out-slugged for the second day in a row, this time it was the Pawtucket PawSox who branded them with the loss on Saturday afternoon in Buffalo.
