Ike Davis : Northway
Gary Sheffield : Nitey


Difference is Sheffield is a borderline HOF.

Ike is awful.

Always a fan. Snider for backup OF and DeAza for Vegas sounds even better considering the ability to fake it in CF is no longer required out of that spot (and I think Snider may even be a better corner OF than ADA).

Difference is Ike never tried to throw games.

For him it was organic.

Yes, well, I'm a bit less of an ideologue than Nitey.

Does nobody remember the spirited "who's fault is it that Parnell keeps ruining everything" debates of August/September? Sandy for putting him on roster vs Terry for using him?

I'm going to blame NYFS over all if he comes back next year and blows leads all the same.


Versus Parnell for just being bad.

Whatever happened to Dale Thayer? Surprised he hasn't been picked up. Unless there is an injury I don't know about.

Awful 2015 season. 4.73 FIP, K/rate dropped to 6.0, BB rate spiked to 3.6. He's 35 and likely done. A ST invite would be fine but ugly season at 34 is generally bad news.

BOOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Mets have signed outfielder Travis Snider, who for my money made the best catch in Citi Field history. He'll report to Las Vegas.

As one of the twitter responses mentioned, he could be promoted when they deal Grandy... and it may indicate they are close to something on that front.
