    Jameson Taillon traded to Yankees

    I don't want to lose Ben Bailey for some journeyman guy who would be the 25th man on the roster, or worse. I want to find out how good he is, and we'll have a better idea 9 months from now, if we have a minor league season.

    Mets GM Jared Porter fired

    Didn't some well known actor do it? Brad Pitt?? Can't remember. Anyway, Porter hit the Self Destruct button. Couldn't stop. Maybe a psych major out there can explain it.
  4. and yet, no one here knows how good of a hitter we have in Yermin. If Sox had just given him a chance in 19-20, then we could evaluate the need for Cruz

    MLB and the Astros have been sued by one of their ex-affiliates. More to follow. Lawyers a-go-go.

    Right. And, we kept Kopech and Vaughn. Can't wait to see how good these guys are.

    You're correct. I just looked it up. Baseball encyclopedia says Sox paid him $100,000 that year, then cut him. Thanks.
