Tonight I am joined by Jared Diamond of the Wall Street Journal and long-time baseball writer Bob Klapisch in a big show on the eve of pitchers and catchers reporting to Mets camp at Port St. Lucie.
Jared discusses the slow free agent market and why the economics of baseball may be broken and need of a fix. Is baseball anti-competitive as Scott Boras suggests? Hear our thoughts.
Bob Klapisch discusses his story about former Mets shortstop and manager Buddy Harrelson and his battle with Alzheimer’s. Bob also looks back into the time machine and tells me why this current free agent “freeze” is nothing compared to the late 80s collusion.
I also chat about the acquisition of Todd Frazier and why Lance Lynn and Alex Cobb are not the only quality free agents the Mets can chase. Hear who I think might be the best “value” pickup of the remaining veteran arms on the market.
