A Tour Around SB Nation

New, 18 comments

A look at other SB Nation baseball blogs, which cover teams far more interesting than the Mets:

NL East

  • Braves - Talking Chop: Ryan Church looks so happy doesn't he?
  • Marlins - FishStripes: Assessing the Marlins playoff chances.  At least they won't be ruining our hopes on the last day of the season for a change.
  • Nationals - Federal Baseball: Jordan Zimmermann is paying a visit to Dr. James Andrews.  Uh-oh.
  • Phillies - The Good Phight: Is Cole Hamels's 2009 performance that much different from his 2008 performance?

NL Central

  • Astros - Crawfish Boxes: The Astros outfield arms and double play turning are bright spots in an otherwise poor defense.
  • Brewers - Brew Crew Ball: A cool post about Brewer players contract incentives.
  • Cardinals - Viva El Birdos: Reminiscing about Edgar Renteria and opining on his (slim) Hall of Fame chances.
  • Cubs - Bleed Cubbie Blue: Derrek Lee vs. Paul Konerko.  One factor not covered in this comparison - do they mean business?
  • Pirates - Bucs Dugout: Pictures taken at a minor league game of the prospects acquired in the Pirates trade bonanza.
  • Reds - Red Reporter: Who is to blame for Edison Volquez's Tommy John Surgery?

NL West

  • Diamondbacks - AZ Snakepit: Umpires seem to be missing more calls than ever this season.
  • Dodgers - True Blue LA: Ryan Church's 3-run homer in the 12th secured a victory for the Braves over the Dodgers on Friday night.
  • Giants - McCovey Chronicles: 1000+ comments on this non-game-thread writeup on what it's like to be a Giants fan.  A preview: pain.
  • Padres - Gaslamp Ball: More complaints about the men in blue.  The umpiring was pretty bad in this weekend's Mets-Pads series.
  • Rockies - Purple Row: Advice for Rocks manager Jim Tracy in the stretch run.

AL East

  • Blue Jays - Bluebird Banter: Tom shares his favorite things about the United States.  I wholeheartedly agree with his first entry.  His least favorite thing: crappy American beer.
  • Orioles - Camden Chat: A farewell to George "Flat Breezy" Sherrill.
  • Rays - DraysBay: Andrew Friedman is blowing up the waiver wire, this time claiming ageless K/BB master Russ Springer.
  • Red Sox - Over The Monster: Cristian Guzman might become the Sawx newest shortstop.
  • Yankees - Pinstripe Alley: What will the Yankees do with soon-to-be free agent Johnny Damon?  He might be a decent option for the Mets, believe it or not.

AL Central

  • Indians - Let's Go Tribe!: A comprehensive profile of new Indian Justin Masterson.
  • Royals - Royals Review: The title says it all: "21 Things You Could Have Told Me At The Beginning Of The Season That Would Have Led Me To Believe That We'd Be In First Place Right Now."
  • Tigers - Bless You Boys: Excitement about the call-up of Tigers catching prospect Alex Avila.  He's no Wieters.
  • Twins - Twinkie Town: I'd love the Mets to trade for Denard Span, because he's a good player and it would provide an excuse to get Denarded.
  • White Sox - South Side Sox: Defending Kenny Williams.

AL West

  • Angels - Halos Heaven: Angels reliever Scott Jepsen hit 100 mph according to the Fox gun.  Brooks Baseball agrees.
  • Athletics - Athletics Nation: Rajai Davis is the A's version of Angel Pagan.
  • Mariners - Lookout Landing: Yuniesky Betancourt was substantially responsible for Endy Chavez's torn ACL so I hate his guts.  Anything making fun of Yuni is fine in my book.
  • Rangers - Lone Star Ball: Lost in this Josh Hamilton photo "scandal" is the fact that his on-field performance has been pretty bad this season (.302 wOBA). 

General

  • Sabermetrics - Beyond The Boxscore: Comparing FCI (Fan Cost Index) and team winning percentage to determine which teams provide the most value to their fans.  Where do you think the Mets fall in this study?
  • Minor Leagues - Minor League Ball: John scouts the Blue Jays AAA affiliate, the Las Vegas 51s.
  • Fantasy Baseball - Fake Teams: Ricky Nolasco's luck has improved and he's having another nice season.  Tim Lincecum is pretty awesome too.
  • Scouting - Driveline Mechanics: A great line to open this piece: "Kyle Lohse has been pitching like a giant pile of Todd Wellemeyer since coming back from injury."
  • Transaction Rumors - MLB Daily Dish: Alex Rios to the White Sox?
