We needn’t spend today in mourning. But neither should we pass it off as just another holiday. Enjoy the games and the grub. Just leave some time to remember.
Tom Coughlin must be having night sweats — again. His starting left tackle joins luminaries such as Hakeem Nicks, Jason Pierre-Paul and Jon Beason as offseason injuries that had a major effect on Big Blue.
If someone else goes down, it’s pot luck as far as reinforcements go. The cavalry won’t be coming. The Mets have all those horses.
Avoiding an offensive face-plant will be harder than it seems. The injuries, most recently Dilson Herrera’s broken finger while taking a throw during pregame drills, are mounting.
It’s a touch premature to tab the Giants as Super Bowl contenders. But thanks to EA Sports, they now have the face to represent such lofty goals.
Pineda and Sabathia have to keep on climbing so the Yanks can keep on climbing. So far, so good. But they should know one thing. The trail won’t flatten out any time soon. It only becomes steeper.
Alex Rodriguez’s legacy will not include a plaque in Cooperstown. No so with fellow cheater Tom Brady. Like it or not, it’s just the way it is.
You cheat, you get caught, you get punished. That’s simple. Much harder is making the punishment fit the crime.
That bed Mets GM Sandy Alderson made with Wilmer Flores is starting to feel awfully lumpy. He should at least change the sheets.
Given their relative contributions to the Jets the last two years, it’s hard to write Geno Smith and Muhammad Wilkerson in the same sentence.
The phrase that must have reverberated through Alderson and Cashman’s heads this week sounds like the same one heard outside any casino in Vegas: “You win some, you lose some.”
Everyone should keep an eye on Landon Collins, Alabama’s fast, physical strong safety. He’s the best middle guy in the draft, and should be there when the Giants go on the clock.
It’s almost an exercise in risk management. It’s a short portfolio, and the key will lie in how Mike Maccagnan views Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.
No more bobbleheads. On May 2, “Gold’s Horseradish” will hand out garden gnomes in the image of Jacob deGrom. What else could be behind the Mets’ shift in fortunes?
The Giants need leaders both now and in the future, which is why it is a little absurd that they have yet to extend Eli Manning’s contract.
