Well, that was some awkward phraseology.

Matt den Dekker is once again a Met, on a minor league deal. That’s one trade the Nats did not win.

That was still one hell of a catch.

Matt Belisle to the Indians on a minor league deal.  I didn't realize he became the Twins closer after we got Kinzler.

Chad Cordero spoke at the annual DC Baseball History meeting, 2/24, to an adoring crowd. Great guy! I've seen a video on Facebok. Will share, if I can figure out how.

Currently a pitching coach for Cincinnati Reds rookie-ball.

Loved playing in Washington. Great fans, great town.

The 2005 team felt they finally were a home team; MLB had forced the Expos to play "home games" in Puerto Rico. With road trips, with Montreal fans knowing that MLB wanted either to contract the team or move it, the 2004 team felt they were always a visiting team. In 2005, and with no big stars, the team played all-out.

Someone called out: "If the world was just, you would have pitched the 9th inning, game 5, 2012!". Chief smiles laughs hard, crowd cheers,

If I can't find a way to link to the video, I try to remember some of his stories.

I do not disagree with his assessment. It’s an average movie that people say is good because everyone says it’s good.

I dislike the movie less than I dislike Jerry Blevins, his crappy pitching when he was here, and his absurd fcuking neck.

I agree with Jerry and I am happy he gave a shoutout to Bingo Long.

Also, it might be an OK movie, but The Natural is a terrible, terrible book.

Did Lobaton get picked up?

Edit:  I see his is a non-roster invitee of the Mets...

Bo Porter is managing the spring training camp for unsigned MLB free agents. Tyler Moore and Tyler Clippard are both in the camp.

Favorite of mine as well.  If he has the right personality to coach, he has a long career ahead of him as at least a pitching instructor if he can teach that change-up.  When he still had 93-94 on his fastball, that thing was just filthy.

Me too, man for a long time it seemed he pitched in every single game didn't it?

Just saw Jayson Werth in the Orlando airport and chatted with him a bit. He’s here to workout but hasn’t signed yet. He couldn’t have been any nicer.

I hope we can pick him up soon before all the other teams swoop in.
