Moves The Mets Need To Make Now

Ike

The Mets are playing as poorly as Met fans expected they’d play.  There were no high expectations this season.  This was to be a rebuilding year for the young Mets.  But as we watch this team, we see no exuberance coming from this team.  Instead of watching the young and the restless, we are watching the young and the listless.  Met fans are prepared for a long season, but they are now left wondering whether the bright future is, in fact, near.  Many of their future stars have regressed rather than progressed.  With that said, it’s time for the Mets to make some moves.

How the Astros Move To The AL Affects MLB And You

Astros

Schedule:  As we all know, this move has necessitated an interleague series throughout the entire season.  The last series of the regular season has the Detroit Tigers playing against the Florida Marlins.  That could have a definite impact on the AL race, especially if the Tigers have an unexpected struggle to make the playoffs and end up needing the wins.  Though MLB really can’t see the future when the schedule is created, a series between the Astros and Marlins would have been more fair, but I get why that couldn’t be done or foreseen.
