Palladino: Yankees Finding Success With Horse Head In Their Corner

As silly as it may be, rest assured that Kelley’s teammates would kill him right now if he tossed that stupid rubber thing in the trash.

Palladino: David Wright’s Nightmarish Season Continues

Nobody is ever going to blame yet another lost season on Wright alone, but there is no denying he’s had some major problems throughout this 61-70 catastrophe. And now he’s hurt again.

Palladino: Washington, Hill Hinge Hopes On Jets-Giants Preseason Game

Hill is the real question mark in this game, not because of his immediate future, but because of his long-range outlook. He’s a roster lock, but this is his last year as such.

Palladino: August Numbers Emphasize Mets’ Need For Castro Or Stanton

This lineup has got to go, at all costs. Guys like Castro and Stanton have got to be looking like attractive targets right now, regardless of money or the talent outlay to get them.

Palladino: Don’t Panic — Patience Is Key With Giants’ New Offense

Although the performance against Indy has led to widespread consternation about Manning and his first-unit group, one must understand that McAdoo is keeping things under wraps.

Palladino: Do The Right Thing And Get Terry Collins Some Big Bats

Mets brass has gone halfway with Collins, and that beats the heck out of the alternative. But they’ll do him an even greater service by actually spending some money this offseason.

Palladino: Views From Below Much Different For Yankees, Mets

The Yanks still have hope, and thus they’re rushing a pitcher back from the DL. The Mets, as usual, think about next year with a prize prospect. It’s like night and day.

Palladino: Jets Could Be Snake-Bitten At Cornerback

Another sprain or pop could ruin the fate of the secondary in what long ago became a pass-first league. If that happens, 2014 might turn into a long, long season.

Palladino: ‘Little’ Yankees Pitchers Don’t Bow Down To Big, Bad Tigers

Given the Bombers’ issues, winning this series against Detroit’s All-World guns is sort of like the Boy Scouts beating up a SWAT team.

Palladino: Giants Will Go On Without David Wilson

By the time the Jennings-Williams rotation shows any results worth serious analysis, Wilson and his short career will be far from anyone’s mind. Football is cold-hearted that way.

Palladino: DeGrom Pitching Himself Into Next Season’s Stacked Rotation

Maybe it was a good thing Sandy Alderson didn’t pull the trigger on anything last Thursday. He might have been enticed to give up a young pitcher or two.

Palladino: Hall Of Famer Joe Torre Honors Guys Who Did It Right

Sunday was about doing it by the rules. This crop of Hall of Famers achieved their stats playing it clean in an unfortunate era where chemicals overshadow its greats.

Palladino: Tulowitzki Would Energize Citi Field, But Will Mets Go For It?

If there was a team in New York that could afford to take a risk, and probably should at least send out a feeler to the Rockies, it is the Mets.

For whatever Rashad Jennings becomes in the Giants’ backfield, he’ll never top his own personal journey to the NFL.
