Baerga Trade Wasn’t Great for the Indians, but Was Even Worse for the Mets

August 8, 2018 | | One Comment

It’s really easy to make fun of the Mets.

Like, almost as easy as it is to make fun of the Browns.

They’re still paying Bobby Bonilla. They’ve completely lost their way this season after an 11-1 start. And they seem to have a disproportionate amount of terrible trades. Amos Otis for Joe Foy.

According to the historical archives known as Baseball Reference, 242 Puerto Rican-born players have stepped into the batter’s box in Major League history. Read More

Carter Trade Changed Baseball for Fans in Cleveland

December 8, 2017 |

I generally try not to reveal my age to others in any facet of my life, but in composing the following, I had to tip my hand a bit.

This week marks 28 years (!) since the Cleveland Indians dealt fan favorite Joe Carter to the San Diego Padres for two prospects and a bit of a veteran journeyman. It would be the start of great things for the Indians organization – something seldom experienced when a perennial basement-dwelling team trades away its most productive player – but it reshaped my understanding of the game of baseball and made a decade of losing worth it during the glory years of the ’90’s.
