In the Darko, Milicic will return to Europe

December 17, 2009

Darko has had 15 DNP's this season

I thought Darko would be an integral part of the Knicks rotation this season, but I’m not running the team. Darko alongside with Nate Robinson have been banished to the bench and it does not look like they will be seeing any action soon. Milicic has 15 DNP’s this season and was placed on the inactive list on Tuesday when the Knicks faced the Bobcats.

The Mets landed the leading contender to be their set-up man last night when they agreed to terms with hard-throwing Japanese import Ryota Igarashi on a two-year deal.

The 30-year-old Igarashi, a right hander whose best pitches are a forkball and splitter, had Tommy John surgery two years ago, but reportedly has regained most of his arm strength and throws regularly in the mid- to high-90s.

The top 10 athletes of the 2000’s….No. 5

December 17, 2009

Even Lebron and Kobe were impressed

While different cities have different tastes, America as a whole generally shows favor to professional sports and college events over say a track and field race or a Bobsled event.  In New York, we care more about Baseball Hot Stove and the health of Sanchez’s knee than (insert random Olympic Figure Skater.)   Nonetheless, the number 5 athlete has been cited by most as the greatest Olympian the world has ever seen, and took the sports world by storm this past decade .  As of August, 2009, this athlete had broken 37 world records and holds the record for most gold medals won at a single Olympics.

Roloson and the Islanders frustrated the Blue-Shirts all night long

via Associated Press

NEW YORK — Without watching a minute of action, it was easy to tell which New York team came out on top in the first half of a home-and-home series between the Islanders and Rangers.

All it took was a glimpse at the postgame reactions.

While the Islanders celebrated a team effort that produced a 2-1 road win on Wednesday night, Rangers coach John Tortorella unleashed an expletive-filled tirade after his offensively challenged club dropped its fifth straight (0-3-2).
