Catcher and the three infield positions are often the most difficult to find good players on your fantasy teams, because the talent pool is so shallow. If you don’t grab a stud at those positions early in your draft, you may get stuck with a revolving door of middling players all season long.
The notorious Met killer, who burned the Amazin’s time and time again as a member of the Phillies from 2000 up until last season, admitted that he would have joined the Mets this winter.
I spoke to an MLB executive this week who believes David Robertson will get a three-year deal for $39 million or a four-year deal for $52 million. Some pretty good neighborhoods to occupy.
When Jeter announced he would retire at the end of the season, I began asking those around the game for their favorite stories. Here is what they told me.
The fantasy baseball experts at CBSSports.com break down who to start and who to sit for the upcoming week.
The Mets are starting to slide. The losing streak is now at three.
Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley sparked an eight-run first inning, Ryan Howard added a late grand slam and the Philadelphia Phillies routed the inept New York Mets 16-1 before a few hundred fans Thursday night at quiet Citi Field.
Early home runs from Mike Baxter and Scott Hairston weren’t enough support for starting pitcher Jon Niese as the Mets dropped the series finale against the Phillies and had their four-game winning streak snapped.
Even if neither New York team reaches its goals, their fans can rejoice in the fates of their foes: archrivals Boston and Philadelphia, who are a combined 30 games out of first place.
71 years to this day, Joe DiMaggio set the all-time record for hitting safely in consecutive games — a feat that may never be matched.
The wheels fell off for the Mets as they gave up 5 unearned runs during the 8th and lost to the Phillies 8-2 on Sunday.
Jimmy Rollins has agreed to a 3-year, $33 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.
I hear from Mets fans a lot. They all ask me the same thing via text messaging and Twitter: “Will Jose Reyes be back?”
Mike Pelfrey pitched effectively, Nick Evans and David Wright homered and the New York Mets snapped a five-game losing streak with a 7-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.
Reyes finished with four of New York’s season-high 17 hits and Jonathon Niese did not allow an earned run against a makeshift Phillies lineup. Daniel Murphy matched a career high with three hits, rebounding nicely from his rough finish Friday night.
