Phillies' Pat Neshek: Sport needed this U.S. World Baseball Classic victory

CLEARWATER, Fla. - Pat Neshek is a baseball purist, a Phillies reliever with a funky windup who finds pride in studying and appreciating the game's past through his extensive memorabilia collection. But, by the end of the World Baseball Classic, where he had danced off the mound after strikeouts and hoisted a gaudy statue of a bald eagle to the grass at Dodger Stadium, he was convinced.

Mets’ top 25 all-time home run leaders, #16: Cleon Jones

Mets’ top 25 all-time home run leaders, #16: Cleon Jones

Cleon Jones was a Met of the near-lifer variety and the best hitter on the 1969 Miracle Mets team. 16. Cleon Jones Home runs as a Met: 93Home run rate: 1 per 50.4 Plate Appearances (2%) I grew up in the Binghamton area and was about 11 years old when it was announced that the Mets’ Double-A affiliate was moving to town. I basically went out of my mind with joy. Most of that region’s baseball fans favor the other team from New York, and here, finally, I would have my team to root for—a minor-league version, anyway—just a few miles from my parents’ house. For the first time in my...

Giants’ Posey on the WBC: I’d do it again

Buster Posey passed Johnny Cueto in a clubhouse hallway Friday morning, smiled, pumped his fist and dropped a USA! Posey, Crawford and Mark Melancon returned from the World Baseball Classic on Friday and went straight to work two days after the U.S. team enjoyed a Champagne celebration after winning the title.

Juan Lagares should get more playing time in 2017

Juan Lagares should get more playing time in 2017

If healthy, Lagares might be the best center field option on the roster. A healthier Juan Lagares rebounded in a big way in 2016, posting a 17.6 UZR/150 in center field and re-establishing himself as an elite defender. His offensive peripherals also improved, as he posted the highest walk and line drive rates of his career, though that resulted in only an 84 wRC+. Despite that meager offensive output, Lagares’s net value projected out to 3-4 fWAR as a full time starter, making him a very solid bench option. Unfortunately, the injury bug caught Lagares again, as he went on the disabled...
