    You see I feel the exact opposite. It's TOTALLY fine to overpay on a one year rental because it's just one year.

    Granted my vision may be clouded by how well the last couple one year rentals went for Atlanta. And it's not like the team is spending very much so far.

    I agree and have been saying this about the Twins heading into the season. We know the market is down this year so a lot of players are ok with a 1 year deal and hit the market next year after a normal season. Over pay someone for one year and take a shot. You are not stuck holding the bag long term.

    Overpaying in dollars on a one year contract is fine. I meant overpay in terms of giving up a ton of prospects for a one year rental. The Mets don’t have a deep farm system so they definitely shouldn’t be looking to pillage it.

    So the Braves finally made their big move. Bringing back Marcel Ozuna. Which is...odd. I kind of figured he wasn't going to happen for us when the league wouldn't settle on the DH for the NL early in the offseason but then, nobody signed him. Then some time passed and it was made more clear, no DH in the NL. So I figure ok now we for sure aren't signing him back because while his offense was insane last year (179 wRC+) he was just a natural fit for a dh slot somewhere because his fielding leaves something to be desired.

    Goodness. It leaves one desiring and wishing that he was good at it. Because he is not.

    Also the figures are far lower than many thought he'd get. 4 years at the mid 60s is what's being reported. With a team option on the 5th year to bring it to 80.

    That means he's probably playing for less than the 18 million he got last year during his "prove it" season where he lit the world on fire and made a serious run at the elusive NL Triple Crown.

    All in all I'm fine with it though. We needed a big bat, a righty as well, to keep Freddie Freeman hot and we have that now.

    Only order of business that's left now is to sign Freddie to that long term extension that we all know he's getting.

    Go Braves go. Run it back.

    Benitendi.......


    Fuck man. I know he suddenly hit a sharp decline inexplicably for a couple years, but I was really hoping he could bring it back this year. Hopefully the change in scenery will do him good.


    As of right now, my entire outfield from the 2018 Championship is gone....

    I like the Mets being involved in that trade. They traded Matz for the Jays 26th ranked prospect and flipped that guy to the Royals for their 8th ranked prospect. Good trade.

    Another Mets coach has been fired for sexual harassment. Get rid of these guys ASAP if they’re guilty. It’s really not difficult to not be creepy.

    I’m not too upset by what the Mets have done in regard to these stories. Callaway was gone by the time Cohen came in and he apparently had been doing it in the ‘land as well. Porter, the GM, didn’t do anything wrong as a Met. His transgressions came when he worked for the Cubbies. They fired him immediately.

    This hitting instructor had complaints against him in 2018. The Mets put him on probation while also telling the person making the complaints that she needed more evidence. She found it and gave it to the Mets in January of this year. This guy was immediately fired. I’d say Cohen is doing exactly what needs to be done to change the culture and show the Mets have a zero tolerance policy about harassment.

    Baseball is back tomorrow.

    I can't say I know enough about any team outside of my own division so here's my division prediction.

    NL East

    Braves - 96 wins
    Mets - 93 wins
    Washington - 83 wins
    Philly - 78 wins
    Marlins - 68 wins

    Guess they took that “before Opening Day” bit seriously and still pushed the fuck out of that line.

    If the Mets play to their expectations I think the NL East will be the most exciting race in MLB this year.

    It really could be.

    So many big questions though. How good can the Nats be even though they're old and lack offense? If the pitching is good enough they could still contend. The Mets look in great shape but as a Met fan I know you've seen that blow up in your face a time or two. Philly keeps spending but are they getting any better? The Marlins are a couple seasons away. I feel safe saying that. Making it to the playoffs last year was a fluke.

    Mets will make the playoffs, but I think Braves go into last few weeks of the season with a relatively safe division lead

    I think the Nats will surprise some people this year. I don’t think Philly has the pieces but I could be wrong. Miami is the dark horse for me. I think they make a run late in the year when they get things figured out. They can definitely play spoiler, probably against the Mets if history is any indication.

    Speaking of the Mets, they may not play until Monday depending on the Nats Covid situation.

    I’m jealous of the west coast.

    Padres/Dodgers looks like it’s gonna be a banger all year round, and I’m in bed way before their games start. Sucks.

    Fucking Dansby Swanson burned Sage in the stadium to get out the bad mojo.

    It seems to have worked. Today at least.

    He’s going to opt out after next season and find a team to give him better run support. Mets have two years to win a World Series.

    This Mets fan won’t. I feel bad for the guy because I know he’s frustrated but he’s far too polite to publicly complain about it. With a .50 ERA he should be 4-0.

    At least he’s showing that wins don’t mean anything for a pitcher. I’ll be happy when that metric isn’t counted for the Cy Young award. Wins aren’t an individual stat, it’s a measure of team success.

    I think it has been in his case. Look at his last few years, his win total against his amount of starts is paltry...... but his era nearly impossible to beat.

    I mentioned to a chat last night that if you took 18 and 19, he has 64 starts and only 25 wins..... but his era is right around 2. It’s ridiculous.

    Yet he shifts the blame on himself last night for the second inning, when he gave up a lone run.

    If it were most guys, they'd be flat out saying "WTF, our offense sucks!"

    That’s because he’s a team-first kind of guy. The Mets are beyond lucky to have him and they’re going to lose him. It’s a shame. I mean I understand the entire team is slumping right now but it’s the same story every time he takes the mound.

    Lots of concern that the Braves aren't going to offer Freeman enough to keep him. The fanbase will go nuts if they dont. Me included. There would be riots in the suburbs of west Atlanta. But I'll tell you this.

    I'd be ok with letting Freeman walk if they signed deGrom instead.

    LaRussa hasn't been the same since the steroids that his players stopped using.

    Plus he has, what, three DUIs over the last 20 years? One is an mistake but three is a sign of a larger issue.

    That may be so, but damn if I don't like what he's doing with the Sox.

    Atlanta needs to flat out sweep this series against the Nats. It's tough though because half the team is hurt and the other half is in a slump except for Acuna.

    First no-no of the year..... and it’s the Orioles?


    No, I don’t count 7 inning ones. No one should.


    EDIT Not the first. I’m an idiot apparently.

    Angels to cut Pujols. Kind of sad to see. I was hoping he’d hit 700 homers.

    I know it’s a pipe dream, but I wonder if St. Louis would bring him back for a farewell stint.

    I kind of figured he’d sign a one day contract to retire as a Cardinal but I don’t know how that works if he’s still owed $30 million for this season.

    Braves bringing back reliever Shane Greene on a one year deal. He's been great for us the past two years but he wanted more money (more than any team wanted to pay him apparantly) and the Braves are...well the Braves are cheap. But they had no choice as the bullpen has been mediocre at best this season.

    BigAl. deGrom. MRI tonight. You scared bro?

    Nah. I’m expecting him to end up on the IL for 10 days and miss two starts. If there’s one upside to the Mets never giving him run support it’s that him missing a couple starts just means any spot starts can probably expect more run support haha.

    I did like the stadium proposal phots that came out a few years ago. The article on ESPN's site has the following places for relocation:

    Las Vegas
    Portland
    Vancouver
    Nashville
    Charlotte
    Montreal

    Where would you want them to go? Vegas and Portland are my top two choices. Nashville would be cool, but is on the opposite side of the country if you want to keep divisions intact.

    I think they need to stay on the west coast so the divisions don’t get too messed up. I’d say Nashville but that’s so far from the rest of the AL West. Maybe Vegas is best.
