Palladino: If Revis Hits Market, Woody Has To Act And Bring Him To Jets

It’s time to crawl out from the onerous shadow of Idzik. Assuming Revis comes free, get him, if only to offer real hope for 2015.

Palladino: Hey, Simeon Rice — Lay Off Strahan!

“I dominated when I played. There was nobody better at my position. Nobody.” Actually, Simeon, there was. His name is Michael Strahan.

Palladino: Hal Steinbrenner Doesn’t Sound Like ‘The Boss’ At All

If the old man ever heard the new-age, “I’m OK, you’re OK” stuff coming out of Yankees co-owner Hal Steinbrenner’s mouth lately, he’d blow his top.

Palladino: Beefy Sabathia Feels Fine, But For How Long?

A large man with a “bum knee,” as the 305-pound lefty called it, can’t help but run into trouble down the line. It is almost inevitable.

Palladino: Center Ring Of Yankees’ Circus Will Belong To A-Rod

It’ll be A-Rod, A-Rod, A-Rod all spring. And that, ironically, means good news for the pitchers and anyone else who doesn’t wear No. 13.

Palladino: Retiring Pettitte’s Number Should Catch HOF Voters’ Attention

The issue comes down to public relations versus responsibility. A team can set its own standards as to how the franchise tells its story. The writers have to tell it straight. That’s not happening right now.

Palladino: Sizzling Comeback Not Guaranteed For Mets’ Harvey

The dream, of course, is that Matt Harvey will be dominant coming off Tommy John surgery. The reality says he’s 50-50 to resume his reign of terror on NL hitters until he actually starts proving it.

Palladino: Team Image — It’s All In The Letters

The way owners and front office executives react to angry letters tells a lot about them as people. It separates class from trash, smart from idiotic.

Palladino: Franchise Tag Could Work Against Giants And JPP

Tagging Jason Pierre-Paul, which would deprive the impending free agent of seeking out more lucrative pastures, would not sit well with him at all. It might even hinder long-term negotiations.

Palladino: As Camp Nears, Yanks Have Major Question Marks In Rotation

In two weeks, pitchers and catchers will report with a starting five comprised of three legitimate injury risks, one young flamethrower in Eovaldi and an average swingman in Capuano.

Palladino: Sandy Alderson Really Dropped The Ball By Standing Pat

If his position players don’t reward his faith, Alderson could be looking at another long year and, quite possibly, a spot on the unemployment line. And this time, it’ll be his own fault.

Palladino: Satisfying Super Bowl Won’t Wash Away NFL’s Stains

Domestic violence. Concussions. Retired players suffering. None of it gets washed away by a thoroughly enjoyable title game. Goodell and the owners need to understand that first.

And then they must deal with it, preferably before the next Super Bowl.

Palladino: Jets Should Be Dreaming Of Cromartie-Revis Reunion

While the Patriots and Seahawks prepare to battle for the Lombardi Trophy Sunday in Glendale, Az., the Jets ponder how not how to win championships, but just to win.

Palladino: Scandal! Drama! Busy Super Bowl Week Offers Plenty For Everybody

We’ll get some football, too, as there’s a nice little confrontation brewing between New England quarterback Tom Brady and Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman.

Palladino: Bowles-Maccagnan Relationship Critical To Jets’ Success

The most encouraging thing that came out of Todd Bowles’ mouth this week had nothing to do with rings or toughness or locker room culture. And yet, it had everything to do with them.
