Where Are Jose Reyes Possible Trade Destinations?

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

It doesn't look like Reyes will be staying in a Mets uniform, so where will he end up?

At only 27 years old, the idea of Jose Reyes leaving the only team he’s ever played for seems preposterous. That was until owner Fred Wilpon went and said, “(Jose)’s a racehorse. He thinks he’s going to get Carl Crawford money. He’s had everything wrong with him. He won’t get it.” That comment, along with the fact that Wilpon claims the Mets are “bleeding cash” and could end up $70 million in the red, make the departure of Reyes more of a reality. Reyes is in the final year of his contract, the Mets are going to have an impossible time catching the Phillies and their starting pitching currently holds the sixth worst ERA in the majors, so there is little reason for the Mets to hold on to him. In order to get something for Reyes before he leaves town, a trade would need to happen. Let’s take a look at five possible teams that would like to have Reyes on their roster by the trade deadline.

Can Grady Sizemore help turn the Indians around enough for a World Series run?

No one predicted the Indians to have a four and a half game lead with the best record in the American League going into the final weekend of April. No one outside the great state of Ohio, that is. Yet here it is, the last weekend in April, and the Indians have accomplished both. So why not take this chance to dream big, to imagine an October that has Cleveland fans excited. In golf, they say a player can only hit the shots they imagine. So lets take a moment to imagine a fall classic featuring everyones favorite summer destination in the city of Cleveland (sorry Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame), and the five reasons it might happen:

1) Starting Pitching: Justin Masterson has looked…wait for it…masterful. With five wins in five starts and no outing lasting less than 6 innings, Masterson is looking like an ace that could carry this staff. If Jered Weaver weren’t looking like the second coming of Cy Young, (more…)

2011 Fantasy Baseball: American League East Preview

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

The AL East is loaded with talent...as always.

When talking baseball, the discussion often starts and ends with the American League East, winners of nine of the last 18 World Series. Throw in what some call the greatest rivalry in sports, and the AL East is an incredibly dynamic division. On one hand the division is filled with enough talent to fill an All-Star fantasy roster. On the other hand, the fans of the division can be very prideful, to a fault. So if you’re in a league with a Red Sox or Yankee fan, know that those players are likely to go way to early. With that in mind, here’s the AL East preview. (more…)
