Jaime Garcia upset with Joe Girardi after getting pulled

Jaime Garcia got an early hook — and he wasn’t happy about it.

Joe Girardi isn’t concerned about hurting players' feelings

Jay Bruce: Trade to Indians saved me from ‘least fun’ Mets

Jay Bruce is much happier now that he’s not on the Mets. On Aug. 1, Bruce seemed resigned to making the best of a bad situation. The outfielder who the Mets had shopped around for basically nine months watched the non-waiver trade deadline go by and no teams had made a deal for him. He’d […]
