Season Preview: Starting Pitching

Before I get into the meat of this piece I'd like to offer a quick apology for the sporadic posting. The "part-time job" that I started working early this month has developed into a 6 day a week more than full time job. I'm supposed to start full time early...

Checking In

Sorry for disappearing on you for a few days. On top of work I was trying to write something on my concern with the way the Mets are handling top prospect Jenrry Mejia. I do think it's a mistake that I will write something about soon, but I finally abandoned...
