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!

Groundhog Day

May 24, 2010

 

Everything is all 'high-fives' in Mets land...for now.

For one weekend, the New York Mets were able to lay claim to the New York baseball throne by defeating the hated Yankees in an important series for the franchise.  For three days, Mets fans could boast that Pelfrey was better than Phil Hughes and any thoughts of Sabathia being the better ace than Santana were put to bed.  While the two wins in the past two days appeared to have saved Jerry Manuel’s job, and put some life into the Mets season, fans of The Amazins must keep their excitement in check. 

After all, haven’t we seen this same story before?  Read the rest of this entry ?

The State of the Union

May 21, 2010

After a 10-7 win over the Nationals Thursday night, the Mets completed a 2-6 road trip and limp home facing six games at Citi Field that could be the coup de grace for Jerry Manuel.  Despite an abundance of injuries, three games against the Yankees will be no cake walk and the red-hot Phillies loom after the weekend.  A mediocre Mets team could find themselves six or so games under .500 by the end of next Thursday.  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 ?

Begging is never Flattering

Prolly not happening..but dude does look ill in an NY Jersey

The full court press to get Lebron to New York has officially begun.

In the words of my main man Russ Bengston via Twitter, “New York City shouldn’t have to pander. To use that ever-popular NBA phrase, it is what it is. You’re welcome if you come. If not? F**k you.”

In good company

April 28, 2010

 

David Wright became the youngest Mets player to record his 1,000 career hit

The Mets ascended into first place after sweeping a double-header from the Dodgers on Tuesday.  What a difference 10 days make as the Amazing’s were left for dead after a 4-8 start.  Now, the Metropolitans will attempt to complete a 9-1 homestand Wednesday afternoon before a trip to Philadelphia against the struggling Phil’s.  Read the rest of this entry ?

Opening Day, part 2

April 7, 2010

The real fun begins tonight with John Maine

The New York Mets home opener on Monday was a fantastic day for the franchise.  The Mets pitched, they hit, made sparkling plays in the field and cruised to a 7-1 victory.   But now fans must brace themselves for the reality of the 2010 Mets season, which opens tonight at 7 pm.  Read the rest of this entry ?

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.

Everyone’s seen a “Switch-Hitter”, but have you ever seen a “Switch-Pitcher?”

March 30, 2010

Can he make an impact on the Major League level?

Pat Venditte is a pitcher who can deal with both his left and right arms.  Although his talent has only gotten him a job pitching for the Advanced Class-A Tampa Yankees, his technique has given him the opportunity to pitch for a very curious Joe Girardi and the Bomber’s tonight versus the Atlanta Braves in Lake Buena Vista, Fl. It should be very interesting to watch an ambidextrous pitcher face off against a switch-hitter like Chipper Jones. Read the rest of this entry ?

The artist formerly known as Joba?

March 18, 2010

When you’re coming off a 27th World Championship, and add a Cy-young candidate to an already stacked starting rotation, there’s not much to complain about with the Yankees.   However, yesterday it was reported in some papers that Joba Chamberlain was “pitching for his life” against the Phillies in Spring Training. 

Has it really come to this for what once was the game’s best set-up man? Read the rest of this entry ?
