If legislation in Sacramento supports the effort then we'll eventually see signs placed along the 15 from Scripps Poway Parkway to Pomerado Road.  The article says the signs will look similar to those placed along Lake Hodges for slain runner Chelsea King.

MLB hot stove: Mets could make sense for Colorado Rockies' outfielder Michael Cuddyer

The Mets will try to prop up their offense this offseason and will be faced with a dilemma in doing so. They can take the free agent route and pick from a shallow market of available hitters, considering price and position. Or they can leverage their crop of young pitchers and prospects and go big.

Finally, at age 39 – after years of wondering if he would get the chance – he will make his first World Series start Friday in Game 3. Hudson takes the mound in China Basin at a pivotal moment, with...
