When it comes to pitching, 300 wins is the equivalent to 500 home runs; or, at least, this is what a certain school of thought espouses. It is the gold standard, the pinnacle of what any pitcher can accomplish. Winning 300 games involves a lot of dedication and a lot of practice. It means showing […]

The “opener” starts the “bullpen game.” Baseball purists, longing for the return of Tom Seaver’s complete-game pitching dominance, wince at both terms. However, it’s here to stay in MLB because it works. Therefore, how about a games opened stat? The Tampa Bay Rays developed the concept of the opener and perfected it. The Rays opened […]

Scott Engel - Apr 22, 2022

It was only the 11th and 12th games of the 2022 New York Mets season, and the first two matchups of a four-game series.

It’s easy to be positive when things are going well. When the New York Mets went 11–1 to start the season back in 2018, many of the things that were said then are being said again in 2022. Despite the fact that good April records often mean very little, there’s a new feel in Queens, […]

99 days after the start of MLB’s lockout, which shed a negative light on the sport of baseball and put the 2022 season in jeopardy, the owners and players reached a new deal on the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

When you think of New York Mets history, plenty of names come to mind. Some brought joy, and some brought pain. Most brought both.

Braden Herb - Dec 20, 2021

Even though guys like Starling Marte, Avisail Garcia, and Mark Canha were signed before MLB’s lockout, there are still plenty of strong outfield options available. When the lockout is lifted, Michael Conforto will be one of the outfielders who garners the most attention. The lefty-hitting Conforto will have plenty of potential landing spots. Age is […]
