The recent history of trade demands and temerity, because Asdrubal Cabrera is not alone.
Do you remember “Operation Shutdown”?
hit .173 and battled injuries as an outfielder for the Pirates. Despite this, Bell believed he was entitled to regular playing time for a bad, bad Pittsburgh team heading into 2002. General manager Dave Littlefield didn’t agree, oddly enough, noting that the Pirates had some promising (lol) guys like Derek Bell , Armando Rios , and Craig Wilson in camp competing for the two outfield spots not occupied by Rob Mackowiak .

Patrick writes about the worst trade he ever made, Jason finds the positive aspect of being a baseball star, and Nathan recounts the fight that should have ended all fights.
Mary foretells the downfall of the Mets, and Matt does some research just for you. The Mets, on the brink of being out of it, have the most attractive player on the August trade market, and a reasonable path to trading him.
Sunday night complicated things, a little. One can never talk about what the Mets should do without talking about the disconnect between that and what the Mets will do, and the gulf between those two things grows out of both the bizarre ownership situation and the even more bizarre fan culture that surrounds the team. Thus, when cracked a game-winning, two-run homer to beat the Giants on national TV and bring the Mets back to .500 Sunday night, he made it excruciatingly hard for the Mets to consider trading him. Still, if we can (hypothetically) bridge the gap between what is and what ought to be for a moment, the fact is that they ought to explore it. Yoenis Cespedes

The Royals are two wins away from not being forced to settle for second place in back-to-back years. On to the always critical Game Three—hmm, perhaps every game in the postseason is critical, huh?

There were too many memorable to plays to squeeze into one article. But we tried anyway.
With their backs against the wall, will the Cubs find a way to stop the Mets--the Mets!--from stealing wild on them? It's nearly five years since the Mets brought in Sandy Alderson. Here's a look back
Nearly five years ago, the Mets hired Sandy Alderson to replace the increasingly unpopular . With the Mets now two wins away from making their first World Series in 15 years, let's take a look back at the move when it was made. This article originally ran on November 4, 2010. Omar Minaya
Last week, the Mets took a bold step away from four years of ever-increasing disappointment and organizational chaos by hiring Sandy Alderson to succeed Omar Minaya as their general manager. The soon-to-be-63-year-old Alderson, who spent 15 years as the GM of the , was by far the most experienced candidate in a field which also included former Diamondbacks GM Josh Byrnes, former Royals GM Allard Baird, White Sox assistant GM Rick Hahn, Dodgers assistant GM Oakland Athletics , and Blue Jays special assistant Logan White . Perhaps just as importantly, Alderson is the first Mets GM to ascend to the post from outside the organization since Frank Cashen in 1980. He is a fresh start for an organization in desperate need of one. Dana Brown Read the full article... Weary aces square off with Jake Arrieta and the Cubs aiming to deny Noah Syndergaard and the Mets a 2-0 series lead.

The Mets finished off the Dodgers with a combination of sustained velocity and Daniel Murphy magic. It's the hair versus the brain for a date with the Cubs.
Game 5. deGrom. Greinke. This pretty much sells itself. But if that doesn't do it for you, perhaps

The last home playoff game the
played ended with a curveball, and 56,000 morose fans streaming out of Shea Stadium. Nine years later they didn't even have to wait for their team's blowout 13-7 win for a bit of catharsis. It came as soon as public address announcer Alex Anthony began to introduce the New York Mets . Loud boos rained down from all corners of Citi Field. The training staff, up first, got the first wave of the gathering storm. The boos continued to rain down through all the Dodgers bench players, most of whom seemed amused. Los Angeles Dodgers even gave a little wave. Then came Zack Greinke , and, well... Chase Utley Read the full article...
