MLB Bullets will meet the Mets

Marcus Stroman has been traded to the Mets in a move that puzzles many. Storm clouds on the labor front. Lots of home runs and weird baseball.

Seems like my plan to not watch the Cubs on Sunday worked like a charm.

I remember when the Cubs traded for Rondell White for Scott Downs at the 2000 trade deadline despite being 8.5 games out of first. White was good for the Cubs when he played, which wasn’t often because he was always hurt. He left as a free agent after the 2001 season. Scott Downs went on to a 13-year major league career, although he did next to nothing for the Expos as he needed Tommy John surgery shortly after joining the team.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster.
