  3. Maybe Astros are Scherzer mystery team

    David Schoenfield

  4. Dave Stewart isn't a fan of analytics

    David Schoenfield

  14. David Robertson to the Mets?

    David Schoenfield

    This is a bit of a follow-up post to the Mets' signing of Michael Cuddyer. In my chat today, a reader asked if this could possibly mean the Mets will sign another free agent who received a qualifying offer, which would mean they would lose their f...
