The Road to the Bronx goes through Flushing

What does Jay-Z meeting with the Mets about Robinson Cano tell us? Only that he's learned to get to the Yankees, sometimes you have to go through the Mets.

Adrian Beltre: Consolation prize or better fit?

It suggests that Boras doesn't have any crazy negotiating ploy up his sleeve and understands the reality that the money he wants just isn't going to be there for Appel.
