Mets Rumors & News

The Mets went into their three-game series with the Cardinals alone in first place by one game. And after taking two out of three from St. Louis, they’ll stay on top of the NL East by at least a game (and maybe more, pending the outcomes of the Phillies and Marlins games). It’s always interesting watching Tony LaRussa’s unorthodox managing style, as he likes to bat his pitcher eighth, play his left fielder in right, his second baseman at third, has pitchers pinch hit for everyday players and he even uses his gardener as his accountant.

Since my post was written, the Yankees have been on a winning streak of 8 straight, they’ve made one trade that filled two big needs and it appears they are not done. Reports have the Yanks ready to acquire Jarrod Washburn from Seattle and this morning the Kansas City Star is reporting a potential deal with the Kansas City Royals that could bring Brain Bannister to the Bronx for Melky Cabrera.

Well, it appears the Yanks are going for it. Why wouldn’t they? They’re the Yankees. I didn’t sense a fight in this team and now they are red hot.
