Flexible Wood an Alderson Target?

This slow offseason has made the Baseball Network virtually unwatchable, but I was channel surfing the other day and stumbled on and then stuck with their Top Games of 2016 segment. #9 on the list was a midsummer clash between the Cubs and Mariners that included an awkward-looking catch in leftfield by a Cubs reliever, whom manager Joe Maddon inserted there when the game seemed like...

The Top 15 players are finally at the echelon where you are either looking at players with very high ceilings or fairly secure paths to the majors.

Mets bring back the old gang for 2017 but likely not 2018

The Mets have six full seasons of the Sandy Alderson-Terry Collins regime under their belt. Since the 2011 season, they’ve never had fewer than 45 players suit up for the club in a season. They actually used fewer players last year (46) than in their pennant-winning season of 2015 (49). In general, change has been part of life for the club the past six seasons. Only three...

What does Curtis Granderson bring to the table?

On a cold December day in 2013, the New York Mets signed lefty outfielder Curtis Granderson to a four year, $60 Million contract. Expecting a power hitting slugger, the Mets would in fact receive a fascinating and unexpected leadoff hitter. For the magical 2015 season, the formula of batting Granderson in the lead-off spot, paid rich dividends. Granderson led the team in games played...

Mets GM: Tim Tebow will ‘be around’ at’ big-league camp

The New York Mets earlier this week announced the minor-league players who received an invite to the team’s big-league spring training camp. Perhaps not surprisingly, Tim Tebow’s name wasn’t on the list.
