If you were in the worst, most boring bar in the world, you could probably win a bar bet by knowing that Mike Baxter not only made the Opening Day roster this year, but he actually...

Cuddyer Will Wear Number 23, Says “Time Is Now” For Mets

Michael Cuddyer told reporters that he will wear uniform number 23 with the Mets, proudly worn by former Flushing notables Doug Flynn, Bernard Gilkey and Mike Baxter. Though predominantly a right fielder, Cuddyer said he will play wherever the Mets decide, and Curtis Granderson pretty much echoed those same sentiments. He believes the Mets are ready to compete in post season play...

Dodgers acquire Colt Hynes from Indians for Duke von Schamann, DFA Mike Baxter

As a prospect hoarder, I’m not usually happy when the team trades a somewhat legitimate prospect for a 28-year-old lefty who has all of 17 innings pitched in the majors (and a 9.00 ERA — yay small sample sizes). But that’s (kinda) what happened on Sunday. The Dodgers sent Duke von Schamann to the Indians in exchange for left-handed reliever Colt Hynes. I think Mike said it...

Dodgers acquire Colt Hynes from Indians, designate Mike Baxter for assignment

The Los Angeles Dodgers acquired left handed pitcher Colt Hynes from the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Duke von Schamann. Last week the Indians designated Hynes for assignment but now he will report to Triple-A Albuquerque where he will provide depth for the Dodgers bullpen. Last season the 28-year-old Hynes made 22 appearances with the San Diego Padres producing a 9.00 ERA and...

Ryu gets the nod in game 2, along with Gordon and Baxter

Via The Dodgers are changing things up in the second game of the season in Australia, inserting two new players into the lineup and switching up the batting order. Scott Van Slyke is sitting for Mike Baxter and Justin Turner is being replaced by Dee Gordon, but perhaps the most interesting move is the decision to bat Gordon leadoff. The changes are understandable with a switch in...

Uncertainty Reigns For Dodgers at Second Base

Dee Gordon reached base three times last night against Seattle, and the first two were pretty much the most Gordon successes ever. In the first inning, he hit a chopper to the left side and beat the throw. After striking out in the second, he tapped back to the pitcher in his next plate appearance, reaching base partially because of his speed, and partially because Logan Kensing...

It Must Be Baseball Season, Because Carl Crawford Is Hurting

There’s no such thing as “too many outfielders.” We’ve been saying that forever, but can we finally agree on that, please? We already know that Matt Kemp isn’t going to Australia, and until we hear about the results of his MRI test, we won’t even know when he’ll be cleared to run at full speed — which, remember, he has not done yet. There’s not currently a date...

A look at where former Mets will be in 2014

Over the course of a 162-game season, fans develop a familiarity with players more than any other sport.   Mets fans have seen homegrown talent grow into solid players, vanish back into the minor leagues, or get designated for assignment.  The outside acquisitions over the past few years have been hit or miss, but the perception of all these players within “Met lore” is never...

With Mike Baxter Gone, Who’s The Mets’ Primary LH Pinch Hitter?

  Ah, the bat off the bench. Perhaps not the foremost thought in most minds when it comes to roster construction, but one that ends up being a major consideration at times, particularly when a game is on the line in the late innings. Bill James has held that the prototypical pinch hitter is a left-handed line-drive producer, able to take advantage of the natural excess of right...
