A smorgasbord of sports thoughts

June 16, 2010

A lot going on in the Big Apple....

The Mets are all of a sudden road warriors, the Yankees continue to dominate at home, Darrelle Revis may not be who we thought he was, and the Nets have a new coach.  Oh yea, and apparently Lebron James is bigger than New York City.  Yuck….

I have a lot on my mind, and it’s time to rant!

Yanks bullpen is Achilles heal

May 19, 2010

Joba no longer has the mystique of 2007.

Three games. Three blown leads. The Yankees bullpen is in trouble.

I don’t know what to think of the last three games — two against Boston, one versus Minnesota — but I know one thing for sure. Mariano will be OK. I can’t say the same thing about Joba Chamberlain. Read the rest of this entry ?

The Renegades are set to make Hip Hop history

Rap superstars Jay-Z and Eminem announced yesterday on ESPN and YES that they will team-up for two monster Hip Hop shows in September.  The duo spent a few minutes in the booth with Michael Kay and company Wednesday night and said the first show will take place at Comerica Park in Detroit on September 2nd.  The final show of the “home and home series” will touch down in New York on September 13 at the brand new Yankee Stadium.  It will be the first concert ever at the new Cathedral and tickets for both shows go on sale June 12th.  Read the rest of this entry ?

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

April 28, 2010

Robinson Cano has been one of the few bright spots for the Yankees this year

The Yankees have hit their first losing skid of the season, losing four of their last five games, the last being a humiliating loss to the Baltimore Orioles, 5-4.

So with that, I’d like to shed some light on some of the good things I’ve seen over the past 19 games, some of the bad, and definitely, the ugly parts of this 2010 Yankees season. Read the rest of this entry ?

Pettite is still getting the job done

I drafted Andy Pettite on my fantasy team this year, planning to use him for spot starts against lesser competition.  When his turn came on Wednesday to pitch against the Sawx, I immediately added him to my bench.  No way was I starting him in Fenway and risking my team ERA sky-rocketing.  Like a lot of outsiders, I doubted that the lefty had any gas left in the tank.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Sunday night the 2010 Major League season gets underway, and baseball’s fiercest rivals begin the action when the Boston Red Sox host the World Champion, New York Yankees.  The pitching match-up features C.C. Sabathia for New York, and Boston’s Josh Beckett.

Breaking down the AL East

April 2, 2010

Who will come out on top?

When looking at the AL East, it’s arguable that the best three teams in baseball are in this division. The Yankees, Red Sox and Rays all are stacked with premium offensive players, good pitching and exceptional coaching, which makes this year’s hunt for October that much more interesting.
