If Wheeler turns into an equivalent mound presence as Harvey this year, all well and good. He might even become the second part of a 1-1A entry. But there’s no need to pressure Wheeler into becoming a savior. The Mets already have one.
There’s an advantage to all this. More beach time for the fans, who will be unencumbered by such mundane things as division and wild card races.
There’s trouble brewing with those two, and manager Joe Girardi may be powerless to do much about it.
If the Patriots training camp turns into the Tebowmania circus that swallowed up Jets camp last year, lay the blame squarely on the media this time.
Barring a miraculous turnaround, Collins will be gone at the end of the 2013 season. If the Wilpons had any heart at all, they’d put this good man out of his misery.
This column is going to be boring. This one is about the Giants, which means minimal drama and maximum work even during the offseason program.
Steinbrenner can repeat “innocent until proven guilty” all he wants as far as the current investigation goes. If nothing else, A-Rod suffers from guilt by association.
Sweep the Yanks four games home and home and then get swept in three by the horrendous, last-place, worst-team-in-baseball Marlins. Kind of makes it seem that the silly Subway Series was played in 1948 and not last week, doesn’t it?
We all love a good Wally Pipp story. But those are few and far between in the sporting annals. Not every backup is Lou Gehrig.
Joe Torre hated the idea. Joe Girardi isn’t thrilled with it. And really, we all know the only true Subway Series occurred when the Yanks faced either the Mets, New York Giants, or Brooklyn Dodgers for all the marbles.
As we prepare to enjoy all the blessings our American freedom bestow on us, let’s first remember that it all comes with a price far higher than any field level box. Observe first, just for a few minutes. Then we can celebrate.
Really, would it make much difference if they did remove Davis from the lineup? Would the Mets suddenly go on a 10-game run because they excised the worst part of an unproductive lineup?
A quick settlement will have a two-fold benefit. First and foremost, it will allow the chosen one — and yes, put that in quotes if you wish — a maximum of first-unit snaps during camp.
On one side of town, a first-place team with a manager being talked up as the best of the best. On the other, a fourth-place disaster with little hope of improvement and a skipper on the ropes.
Unless he’s completely lost it, he could provide a potential boost to an outfield that simply has provided zippo.
