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 ?


Memo to Yankees: Make Joba the fifth starter

March 25, 2010

Joba deserves to start this year

Joba Chamberlain should be a starter.

Unless he goes out this year and rolls out a poultry five-plus ERA, throws 91 mph heaters combined with meatball cement mixers, then by all means, put him in the pen. But hasn’t he earned the opportunity to pitch a full season without shackles? Read the rest of this entry ?


No more Melk for you

December 23, 2009


Melky Cabrera was traded to Atlanta

When I think back to 2004, in particular the ALCS, images of the most debilitating/humiliating loss flood my memory, and my throat fills with vomit. No Yankees fan will ever forget The Collapse, and entrenched in the center of that nightmare was Javier Vazquez. Read the rest of this entry ?


Momma didn’t raise no fool…

December 11, 2009


Omar Minaya has one more chance to get this right.


Does Omar Minaya take Mets fans for idiots?

Four years at $65 million for Jason Bay? Is he serious?

An offer like that is not only egregious, but a spat in the face of Mets fans, and an equally saliva-filled loogie in the eye of Bay. Read the rest of this entry ?


Curtis Granderson: Jekyll and Hyde

December 9, 2009

The tale of two seasons

The Yankees are on the verge of acquiring  Curtis Granderson, an All-Star in 2009 who may be the center fielder the Yankees have been looking for since the departure of Bernie Williams.  In Granderson, one scout said, “the Yankee’s see Derek Jeter in him.  He’s polished, professional, and can handle the spot light”  

Granderson has had a solid career thus far, with a career .270 average, 102 Hrs, 299 RBIs, and 67 stolen bases in 674 games.  It’s easy to see what the Yankees like about him.  However, it’s also easy to see why the skeptics are so critical of the 28 year-old.

Yankees re-sign Andy Pettite

December 9, 2009

Joel Sherman of the Daily News writes that The Yankees have re-signed Andy Pettitte for one-year at $11.75 million.

The two sides quickly hammered out an agreement once Pettitte signaled he did want to play again in 2010 — and only for the Yankees.
