MMO Mailbag: Adding A Big Power Bat This Offseason

Stephen H. asks… Joe, why are you always so against the Mets adding a big power hitter in the outfield?

Imagine if we had one of them this season instead of Chris Young who was a complete waste of money? I usually agree...

Then Andre Ethier was, but then Scott Van Slyke was, but then Yasiel Puig was. Kemp spent weeks in left while Carl Crawford was hurt. Joc Pederson was knocking on the door. Only three starts all year came from outside that group, and one of them came on...

The Return Of Matt Kemp’s Power, Briefly

The return of Matt Kemp‘s power has been one of the most fun stories of the second half of the season.

Los Angeles Dodgers are in the driver’s seat

The Dodgers took care of business against the Cubs, winning three of four. Their loss came Saturday...
