The Mets signed Chris Coste yesterday. I’m preparing a rant about this for later, but Toby Hyde said it well:
I wish I was in the conference room at Citi Field where, when the Mets front office was discussing off-season planning, signing Chris Coste before new year’s was on the agenda.
Speaking of Toby Hyde and catchers, he makes a good point about how no free-agent catcher represents much of an upgrade over a Josh Thole/Omir Santos platoon.
Rich Zuckerman wonders if Carmelo Anthony could be a fit for the Knicks when he becomes a free agent after next season. If they sign anyone besides LeBron, I’d like it to be Chris Bosh for a variety of reasons.
I’m sorry. Look at the screengrab of A-Rod here. I’m pretty certain that’s a World Series trophy on his hat, but man. I’m not the only one who sees that, am I?
