    Joe Kelly gave his old mates fits. Well, maybe he gave them fits before too. Maybe they weren’t his mates. Maybe there were long-simmering disputes between him and the Cardinals about politics and religion and things. We can’t know!

    Howard Megdal interviewed former Mets and current Dodgers infielder Justin Turner.

    San Diego Padres v Los Angeles Dodgers

    Listen, I’m as shocked as you are by the headline. The Dodgers designated Javy Guerra, a perfectly good — if flawed — reliever to make room on the roster for Chone Figgins, a 36-year-old utilityman who hasn’t OPSed above .535 since 2010. The report comes from MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick. The Dodgers, though, are deep in…

    You all act like you hate the War on Christmas, but tell me, if it were won by the anti-Christmas hordes, wouldn’t we be without awful things like the Mets singing Christmas songs? OK, I guess that can be an all-purpose holiday/seasonal song, so maybe the War on Christmas is irrelevant here. But someone should…

    Mar 17, 2013, 7:34 PM EDT

    David Wright

    Opening Day for the Mets could be very uninspiring. With Johan Santana unlikely to be ready, it is looking like David Wright and Daniel Murphy could join him on the bench, according to ESPN’s Adam Rubin: If David Wright and Murphy both open the season on the DL, Collins added, he likely would use Justin…
