Faith and Fear in Flushing takes a look into what would have happened had the Mets completed a trade for Barry Larkin in 2000 instead of ubercrap rental, Mike Bordick.

Buckshot Mammarybrush doesn't have the same ring to it.

The future is much brighter and Omar Minaya never appears!

Rob Neyer on ESPN takes a guess as to what hat certain players should wear when they get inducted into the HOF. I can see a case made for Piazza wearing Mets or Dodgers and being a Mets fan I would love to see him under that guise, but I can’t fault him for the other choice.

Ted Berg interviews a woman with the hyphenated name Wrigley-Field…and that wasn’t done on purpose.

Perhaps the best name ever or just about the worst name for a product that I don’t want to use.

I like the moxie in paying to sponsor Johan Santana’s Baseball-Reference page when you’re a Phillies blog, but the comments are idiot Phillies fans arguing with idiot Mets fans. Not to mention the “injuries aren’t an excuse” line. Take Pujols away from St. Louis for 75% of a season. Suffer without Ryan Howard, Jimmy Rollins, Shane Victorino, Carlos Ruiz, and an assortment of pitchers for most of a season. Sub .500 is almost a guarantee. Of course that Bay comment is beyond ridiculous.

Top 20 Prospects from Minor League Ball for Philadelphia Phillies and New York Mets. Gives you an idea of the full effect of the Lee in, Lee out, Halladay in move. Also, Steve Matz, who appears for the Mets at #17, went to my High School…unfortunately I couldn’t convince my friend that his sister should force Matz into a relationship.

Baseball Projection gives us the CHONE (not Figgins related) projections for players in 2010. Now you can watch as your fantasy picks amount to crap in comparison.

FanGraphs has a hilariously titled article on Casey Kotchman. Besides the title it is well written and well researched.
