Roy Hallday is going everywhere

Your latest dose of Roy Halladay “news”

— He’s going to the Phillies, Brewers, Rangers and Dodgers.

— He’s going to the Tigers, Twins and Red Sox.

— Oh, and the White Sox.

— And if you want to talk ancient history, you can go all the way back to last Wednesday and throw the Yankees into the mix too.

It’s all so confusing, it’s enough to make you cry.

With the passing of Walter Cronkite over the weekend, one pines for the days when the news happened before it was reported.

And for the record, I still don’t think he’s going to be traded by the deadline.

Michael Conforto unlikely to be on the Mets’ Opening Day roster

Mets GM Sandy Alderson told reporters today that it was “unlikely” that Michael Conforto will make the opening roster.

Not shocking given the shoulder surgery he had back in September, but given that he seems to be recovering more quickly than first anticipated, it was worth Alderson’s time to make the announcement. Indeed, back in December it was not expected that he’d see much if any game action at all during spring training, but here he is, playing DH today in the Mets game against the Cardinals.

Conforto missed the last six weeks of the 2017 season with a left shoulder injury and underwent surgery in early September to repair a tear of the posterior capsule in his shoulder. He finished the season batting .279/.384/.555 with 27 home runs and 68 RBI in 440 plate appearances. By the looks of things, he should be back some time in April.
