Looks like Duda will be the regular 1B starter for the Mets, can I drop Ike?

im avoiding that whole situation. I had ike and dropped him, but they have three guys they plan on using at 1B, so nobody has any value.

information for your back pocket.

Ryne Sandberg explained why he ...He likes to shuffle. It's good for the old guys, good for the young guys, good for everyone, Sandberg believes.

...when the players arrived for work Tuesday, the lineup card had been significantly altered. Only two players - centerfielder Ben Revere and shortstop Jimmy Rollins - had remained at the same position on the field and in the batting order.

"I like the lineup against . . . tonight's lefty," Sandberg said. "Different lefties are different, but for this lefty tonight I like this lineup with the balance. I also like to play the whole roster and get everybody in

I'm watching that one and just kinda shaking my head at Bryce Harper at bats. he is seeing a lot of straight pitches in the strike zone that he is either fouling off or swinging through. I'm hoping that blow to the head in the first game isn't lingering...


To my eye his swing is slower than usual. Even the announcers said something about it yesterday so its not just me. Not sure if the bulking up has anything to do with it or the head injury. Does anyone know if theres a site that tracks players swing speed and how Harper is doing in comparison to other years?
