The Rangers have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NHL Draft

Is J.D. Davis more than just a one-season wonder?

I’m starting to think that J.D. Davis might be my new favorite player. Not only is he a lovable goof who came out of nowhere to shine at the plate for the Mets last year, but in 2020 he’s continuing … Continue reading

That’s so Mets: Yoenis Cespedes opts out without telling management

The Mets got a real live hit with runners in scoring position on Sunday afternoon in Atlanta, but they still failed to score a run and lost to the Braves 4-0. David Peterson had another encouraging performance with eight strikeout … Continue reading
