Odds & Ends: M’s, Peavy, Metropolitans

A handful of links for your Wednesday evening viewing pleasure…

  • Matthew Pouliot of NBC Sports has concluded his "Restoring the Rosters" series.  Pouliot's No. 1 organization, "if given only the players it originally signed," is the Seattle Mariners.  All 30 squads are now available for review.
  • According to Joe Cowley of the Chicago Sun-Times, Jake Peavy's debut with the White Sox is still "up in the air."  Here's Peavy's take:  "I can promise you this.  On Feb. 15 or whatever day it is I report [for spring training], I'll be in as good of shape as anybody and be ready to pitch and expect nothing less than what I've done in years."
  • R.J. Anderson of FanGraphs doesn't believe "blowing up the Mets" is the answer.  In fact, he likes their current nucleus.  "Heading into next season," Anderson writes, "the Mets will have David Wright, Jose Reyes, and Carlos Beltran. Depending on Johan Santana’s health, they could legitimately post four four/five win players without spending a dime on free agency."
