Meet the Mets

Two men have spent time and money acquiring baseball cards from Mike Piazza's quick Marlins' tenure. That seems like an interesting, if somewhat odd hobby. Whatever floats your boat, I guess.

Around the Majors

Brett Myers has signed a one-year deal with the Indians. Meanwhile, Cleveland has also had discussions with free agent righty Shaun Marcum.

Injury prone pitcher Brandon Webb is scheduled to throw for some teams later this month. Remember how good he was five plus years ago?

The Rays avoided arbitration with Cy Young award winning lefty David Price yesterday.

At Baseball Nation, Mike Bates took on the irony of the BBWAA's whole ethics stand in regards to the Hall of Fame voting. Only a week until we find out whether Mike Piazza made the cut.

Yesterday At AA

The first of January is ex-Met Fernando Tatis' birthday! You all remember Fernando, right? He hit two grand slams in one inning that one time with the Cardinals, then he played for the Mets and made us laugh those times. Happy birthday, Fernando!
