Re: The Manny Machado Thread

Just hope he doesn't sign a long term deal with LA in offseason He doesn't really fit there when they're healthy. Machado isn't a good SS and Seager is, so Machado would have to acquiesce to playing 3B full time. They'd also have to move Turner to 1B and Bellinger to their crowded OF. I guess you c...

Re: Josh Hader

Really sucks that there is also a Schwarber homophobic tweet going around. It is not a bad as what Hader said at all, more along the lines of using the term to mean something is bad, but horsefeathers nonetheless Sucks for sure but yeah that's not even in the same stratosphere as what Hader said.

Re: Josh Hader

MLB is making him take sensitivity training per ESPN. Probably the only thing they can do at this point. Hader’s said all the right things since this hit the news. If he’s smart or has smart people around him, he’ll do the sensitivity training with a smile on his face, come out saying that he learn...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 7-16-18

I don't agree with this at all. Any season-ending arm injury to a pitching arm is damning enough, with or without surgery, but then his performance when on the field was decidedly meh. It was only 8 starts, but he was striking out 2 guys less per 9 than last year in AA, while still throwing loads o...

Re: Regular Season Rumors

July 14: Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard would be the prizes of the starting pitching market if the Mets decided to trade either of their two aces. So it's no surprise that Syndergaard was being heavily scouted on his return from the disabled list Friday at Citi Field. On hand to watch the flamet...

Good news?


It's an extremely cautious timeline, which I am fine with, but this injury shouldn't be a 2 month ordeal like this. They don't really need to push him though and this should keep him fresh for October.

He would've been drafted in the first round or comp round.
