Manager of the Year Applesauce - Manuel does not win, report on Havens, Davey Johnson in DC

Meet the Mets

Toby Hyde provides us with a little update on Reese Havens down in Arizona. Ted Berg gives his two cents. presents an exercise in what might have been.

Why all this talk about Mark DeRosa when there's another guy out there who does the same things?

Kevin Goldstein is still pretty high on Jenrry Mejia and Wilmer Flores.

Now for the over the top commentaries of the day. First, Kevin Kernan urges Omar to go all Brian Cashman on this year's free agents. Second, Paul Raymond seems to think that Dave Jauss shows that the Mets don't want to win. Because a bench coach is really that important.

Around the NL East

The Phillies are apparently favorites to land Mark DeRosa.

Good work by the Nationals, signing Davey Johnson to be a senior advisor with the organization. Johnson worked with top pick Stephen Strasburg on the US Olympic team.

The Marlins are facing a little labor difficulty with their new stadium construction project.

Around MLB

The Managers of the Year are: Jim Tracy and Mike Scioscia. Tracy promptly received a three year extension from Colorado.

After his enormous free agent contract and subsequent major bust status, Jason Schmidt will likely retire from baseball.

More confessions from non-Greinke Cy Young voters. This time Mark Feinsand explains his King Felix vote. This one is definitely more reasonable than the Verlander vote, but still.
