Former Met Jae Seo was traded from the Dodgers to the Devil Rays today. The Duaner Sanchez trade keeps looking better.
I don’t think my praise of Jose Reyes yesterday had anything to do with this but Reyes was named NL Player of the Week yesterday. It was the second week in a row he won the award. The first time he shared it with teammate David Wright. Ths time he gets it solo and it’s [...]
A couple of weeks ago I praised David Wright. He’s been great all year and gets better every time I watch him. Now it’s Jose Reyes‘s turn. He had two consecutive 4 hit games this weekend, has had 4 hit games in 3 of the last 4 and has a 13 game hit streak going [...]
You may have noticed the link on the right sidebar for the 1986 World Series DVDs. The folks who produced it were nice enough to send me a few copies to give away. This DVD set is excellent. The 9 DVD set includes 1 DVD each for all 7 games of the series as well [...]

The more I see of David Wright the more I like him. Wright is quickly ascending the ladder to sainthood in my mind. His game last night added some brownie points in his favor. I turned on the game in the third inning and watched as Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgado homered to give the [...]
David Wright has taken the lead in fan balloting over Scott Rolen by 17,000 votes. He had trailed Rolen by as many as 34,000 votes. Othe Mets on track to get into the game based on fan voting are Paul Lo Duca, who leads Mike Piazza by 100,000 votes, and Carlos Beltran, who has about [...]
