As The 2017 Nightmare Winds Down, More Questions Arise

Just when you thought we could let the hysteria surrounding Marc Carig’s article about the outgoing Terry Collins die out and drink ourselves to Sunday afternoon to finally be done with this nightmarish season, here comes Joel Sherman with a new report that the Mets could be looking to cut as much as $20M from payroll going into next season.

This should come as zero surprise to anybody who’s been paying attention all year. For the past few years, even. Why anybody is acting shocked now just shows that a lot of you have your heads planted firmly up your ass in Fantasyland where the Mets still have money and the pitchers never age or break.

While Sherman apparently thinks that the Mets should be in the market to sign anybody who has ever worn a Royals uniform – including Dan Quisenberry and Willie Mays Aikens – to expect any kind of splashy, big money move goes beyond just the Mets being broke, but it doesn’t make a lot of baseball sense either.

2017 IBWAA Awards Ballot!

As we stand on the precipice of the end of another baseball season, we finally get the part where we argue about awards!

This is the second year that I’ve had a ballot in the IBWAA (Internet Baseball Writers Association of America) year-end awards selection and, as I said last year, it’s something I take pretty seriously because I completely understand how serious fans take it.

Trust me, I got hammered last year on Twitter with people who vehemently disagreed with my ballot and while I felt I was able to justify selections, it did serve as a reminder to ensure that no fuckery occurs.

This was a helluva season, wasn’t it? Big injuries, bigger homers, fun streaks and disappointing, wastes of seasons (coughMetscough). All that action is setting up for a very fun October with a number of intriguing postseason matchups, but before we get there, we have to give out some awards. Final tallies will be revealed after this weekend, but – in the meantime – I can tell you where my votes went. So here we go: fuckery not included. Continue reading
