Recently signed to the Texas Rangers, Sammy Sosa is looking to make a return to Major League Baseball. In my opinion this signing is one that is shocking and honestly doesn’t make much sense.
There were many off-season transactions during the past months. Soon, every team in the Major Leagues will go into Spring Training with the players they already have, since most free agents have been signed. That is why I feel that now is a good time to look at some of the most important transactions made this off-season by a team that was champions of the National League Eastern Divsion and made it to the 7th game of the National League Championship Series, the New York Mets. The transactions mentioned will help to strengthen the Mets, in reaching the first round of the post-season and beyond.
Recently inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame, was one of the greatest players to ever step onto a baseball diamond. Cal Ripken Jr. has finally received the greatest recognition in all of the sport for his accomplishments to the game of baseball, by being inducted into the Hall of Fame, many are still questioning the induction of Cal Ripken. It amazes me how many times I have read or seen someone say that Cal Ripken doesn’t deserve to go into the Hall of Fame over Mark McGwire. It comes as no surprise to me, as to why he was inducted. I will explain why Ripken was inducted into the Hall of Fame and why Mark McGwire was not.
The New York Jets team has come a long way, since earning the right to have one of the highest picks in the draft. This is season was one that was truly special.
