How Good Is Mets Pitching Coach Dan Warthen

Back in the 90′s when the Atlanta Braves had a historically dominant rotation that included Tom Glavine, Greg Maddux, and John Smoltz, pitching coach Leo Mazzone was hailed as a genius. When he went to the Baltimore Orioles, not so much. Rick Peterson was also lauded for his work with an A’s rotation comprised of Tim Hudson, Mark Mulder, and Barry Zito. With the Mets, he was a...

The Mets Are Throwing the Dan Warthen Slider

Longtime Cardinal pitching coach Dave Duncan loves the sinker. The Braves’ Leo Mazzone was all about establishing the pitch low and away. Rick Peterson may hate the cutter. The Mets’ Dan Warthen may not have the name value of legendary pitching coaches that have come before him, but he does have his own pitch. If […]

ESPN’s ‘Great Analytics Ranking’ ***** All Over The Redskins

Who Got Got … Exactly?

Oh, man. They got him! http://t.co/9PEDUz0Ah7 — MLB GIFS (@MLBGIFs) August 2, 2014 Well that’s wonderful. I haven’t eaten my hot dogs with ketchup since I was 12, and I certainly wouldn’t eat pizza with a fork. So I approve. But I also didn’t get three RBI against the Mets tonight.

Reflections on Willie Randolph

At 3:28 AM on June 17, 2008 I got a call from one of my writers. My first instinct was to hang up on him. “Joe, get up, Willie Randolph just got fired!” I still remember how those words made me jump out of bed, rush to my desktop, and 20 minutes later I posted this: The Mets have fired manager Willie Randolph, as well as pitching coach Rick Peterson and first base coach...

Jacques Villeneuve is ready to make an IndyCar comeback. Schmidt Peterson Motorsports said Wednesday it has hired Villeneuve to race in this year's Indianapolis 500, 19 years after the Canadian driver first drank the milk in Victory Lane.
