We’ve reached the midway point of the season, time to look at the awards races.
No contract clause is worse than Bobby Bonilla’s with the New York Mets, but here are some other contracts that certainly raise some eyebrows.
A little over a quarter of the season has been played, which means it’s time to hand out some early season awards.
Matt Harvey outpitched Max Scherzer, barely, and the New York Mets backed their ace with a lot of fancy fielding before breaking away from the Washington Nationals 4-0 Friday night.
Max Scherzer will be the opening day starter for the Washington Nationals instead of Stephen Strasburg, who has made the previous three opening day starts.
Max Scherzer will take fun over flawless in his first start for the Washington Nationals.
He was 18-5 with a 3.15 ERA in 2014, a year after going 21-3 with a 2.90 ERA and being voted the best pitcher in the American League.
Hal Steinbrenner is keeping an eye on the Bombers’ bottom line. But it seems he’d still be willing to flash some cash if the right opportunity comes along.
For anyone still holding out hope for free-agent ace pitcher Max Scherzer, well, keep dreaming.
When you are promoting Andrew Miller and making a run at Chase Headley, you might as well tell your fans you’re going to try really hard to finish in third place next season.
They are, after all, the Yankees. Just because they haven’t gone crazy at the cash register yet doesn’t mean they won’t soon. That was the take-away reporters got from team president Randy Levine on Wednesday.
Though still undecided about pursuing Scherzer, the Yankees could adjust their offseason approach after having “brief contact” with the two-time All-Star’s agent, according to CBS’ Jon Heyman.
The events of last week indicated that signing veteran hole-fillers won’t be as easy as the Bombers might have hoped. In fact, they may be faced with additional, internal issues sooner than later.
There is no longer a debate here. We know who Alex Rodriguez was and who he is, and let’s just leave it at that.
Looking for more big splashes this offseason, Yankees fans? They may not be coming.
