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.

Bonus Episode: Baseball!

Hey! This is a special bonus episode that started off with just the two of us bullshitting, but turned into a fully-blown conversation. Joe is a member of the Internet Baseball Writer’s Association of America (IBWAA) and discusses his awards ballot this year before the two get into the playoffs and some predictions and the state of the Mets following their Wild Card loss to the San Francisco Giants.
