John Supowitz| July 30th, 2019

There was a lot of expectations in Flushing this year: Wilson Ramos, Jed Lowrie, Robinson Cano, with a Cy Young deGrom, the Mets looked to be a force in that heavy National League East. Unfortunately, the familiar injury bug and some players not living up to expectations have them in fourth place. They have said Noah Syndergaard is available, and a few teams could use an ace quality pitcher like him. He won’t come cheap; The Mets will look to rebuild their franchise as a result of trading him.

John Supowitz| July 24th, 2019

DJ LaMehieu – Second Base – New York Yankees

Hopefully, La Machine thanks me after the end of the season with all the promotion I’ve been giving him. Just like the weather this weekend the man stayed hot.

Washington Nationals 

Pitcher – Pitcher Stephen Strasburg – 7-year, $175 million

Before Contract (2010-2015) : 54-37 3.09 ERA

After Contract (2016-2019) : 51-19 3.27 ERA

His last 30+ start season was 2014, and he’s only pitched over 200 innings one time. Continue reading

Team Grades: American League East

John Supowitz | July 8th, 2019

New York Yankees 57-30, 1st place +7.5 GB

Positives:

The offense is what held the team together. You would expect without Didi Gregorius to start the season, followed by Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Miguel Andujar, all on the IL, players like Gio Urshela, Cameron Maybin, and Clint Frazier all stepped up. The team had set a new record for consecutive games with a home run with 31. They have three hitters selected to the All-Star Game (Gary Sanchez, DJ LeMahieu, Gleyber Torres) and five total players (Aroldis Chapman, Masahiro Tanaka).
