EndScore Report: What To Do With Jose Reyes

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, Rumors, Trades,

Will the New York Mets' Jose Reyes be traded?It's been a while, but EndScore Report is back! However, the question to ask is whether or not Jose Reyes will be back with the New York Mets, both after the MLB trade deadline or after the season. This edition was recorded on July 6th, but the content still holds strong, such as speaking on the possibilities of where Reyes will call home in the immediate and long-term future. For example, can he eventually replace Derek Jeter and take over as the shortstop for the New York Yankees? It's a hot topic among Mets fans since Reyes has been playing out of his mind thus far this season. LISTEN to what Chris has to say about the best player on his favorite team.

Closer role still a work in progress

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Brian WilsonIn the last few decades, the role of the closer has grown exponentially from guys who had to mop up games that a starter couldn’t finish to pitchers with defined jobs that earn them save stats all their own as well as paychecks with a significant number of zeros. However, despite the prestige the role gets when successful, it’s still very much a work in progress. On average, teams only convert 68 percent of their save opportunities.

Jim Riggleman’s reasons continue to intrigue

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Front Office, MLB, Rumors,

Jim RigglemanA managerial change in professional sports usually grabs headlines for a day or so before things return to normal, especially in-season. But the situation developing with former Washington Nationals manager Jim Riggleman walking out on his team after they won a game on Thursday night has continued to pique interests nationwide. Riggleman cites a lack of respect as baseball’s lowest-paid manager as one reason why he chose to relieve himself as the skipper and leave.

EndScore Report: In Your Face Wilpon and Russell Westbrook Naysayers

Russell Westbrook getting busy, why would you want to trade himThis week's "In Your Face" brings back idiotic New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon into the spotlight for his not understanding the concept of ownership and supporting the team you own. We also call out all of the Russell Westbrook haters that want the Oklahoma City Thunder to trade their 22-year-old, vastly improving, and dominating-type of point guard because of an assumption that he cannot co-exist with Kevin Durant. Ridiculous. LISTEN up!

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Editorial, Front Office, MLB, News,

New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon does a good job blasting his own playersIn this edition of EndScore Report, DV and (mostly) Chris talk about New York Mets owner Fred Wilpon, who had some scathing remarks regarding his own players. His own players! Wilpon disses once thought of foundation players, Jose Reyes and David Wright, as well as Carlos Beltran. Way to go, Fred. Great way to devalue your players for any possible trades, as well as send a clear message to any free agents that the Mets ownership is a joke! Chris, the resident Mets fan, gets down with his bad self and DV just let's him do his thing. LISTEN UP!

EndScore Report: In Your Face Roger McDowell and Atlanta Falcons

Posted by Dennis Velasco Categories: Athletes, Drafts, Editorial, MLB, News, NFL, Trades,

Roger McDowell acting stupid at the ballparkThis week's "In Your Face" has DV and Chris putting on blast, former New York Mets star and current Atlanta Braves pitching coach, Roger McDowell. McDowell engaged in tomfoolery and straight-up stupidity at the ballpark and deserves the "in your face" treatment!

The other recipient has to go to the Atlanta Falcons for trading five picks (two first-rounders, one second, and two fourth-round picks) to the Cleveland Browns to move up 21 spots to select Julio Jones with the sixth overall pick, a wide-receiver to match up with Roddy White. I guess Jones is some sort of savior, which means that A.J. Green, the first wide receiver selected is a god then. Too many picks given up for one pick, no matter where it is. In your face, ATL... it's not a good week for you sports-wise. Thank goodness for the Atlanta Hawks! Listen to this week's "In Your Face"!

As an addendum, they expound on the Dodgers' situation and how things could be in the two biggest markets with crappy/controversial baseball teams. Yes, they include the New York Mets into this mess.

Injuries have plagued his return to baseball ever since, prompting the slugger’s ultimate announcement.
