Brian Fuentes Rips Bob Geren for Mismanaging Bullpen

Relief pitchers are sort of like NFL kickers. They are their own breed of people and need things to be structured in a certain way. Ask a kicker to kick more 40-yard field goals in practice than he normally does and he’ll probably have a nervous breakdown. Ask a relief pitcher to help the team…Read More

Carlos Beltran Could Block Trade to Screw Fred Wilpon, Mets

If you had a chance to read Mets owner Fred Wilpon’s comments about the current state of his team and players on Monday, you don’t need us to tell you the things he said were idiotic and ill-advised.  For starters, it probably isn’t a good idea to refer to your team as “sh***y” when you…Read More

Edinson Volquez Sent to AAA After Rant About Reds Offense

Jim Leyland Accepts Fan Second-Guessing About Removing Porcello from Shutout

Tigers manager Jim Leyland is an outspoken character who is unafraid to voice his opinion. Last week he said interleague play was flawed, he’s argued against instant replay, and he steadfastly believed that Miguel Cabrera’s alcohol problems wouldn’t affect his play. Now he’s ranting against the fans who call into sports talk radio shows to…Read More

Mets Owner Fred Wilpon Rips Own Team, Players in Interview

The following is not a Saturday night live skit. We promise. This is the real deal. An April Fool’s joke in late May really makes no sense, so there goes that possibility. New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon is just that fed up with his team’s lack of success, and he apparently doesn’t care much…Read More
