Once regarded as a mere extra part in the R.A. Dickey trade with Toronto, John Buck is handling things quite well and looks like much more than a placeholder for Travis d’Arnaud.
It all comes down to thinking a little, really. Rice’s actions were unacceptable in this more-evolved era. Johnson’s words were just plain stupid in a week fraught with potential danger.
Not to put any undue pressure on Matt Harvey, but a well-thrown game against the Padres today would look awfully nice for the top of that Mets rotation.
The hard realities of age, injuries, and talent levels can wait. Today, just knowing that baseball season has begun should suffice. In other words, don’t worry. Be happy.
Of any team in sports, the Yankees can most afford to give the beer-and-hotdog fans a break, even if it’s for just one season. Show the regular guy he’s something more than a two-legged ATM.
They’ll just have to wait for Santana and hope that the brilliant future that awaits Harvey is now. Santana won’t pitch in a game until he can throw a ball 180 feet. So far, he’s only halfway there.
You see, one has to be on the field in order to lead. Whether Jeter will admit it or not, he’s not going to be there. Not consistently enough to be a factor, anyway.
Eli Manning and wife Abby are expecting their second child in June. Yet, if you ask him, the most nerve-wracking event of the next couple of months will be the wait for Victor Cruz’s long-term contract.
No matter the league’s motivation, any move to save the players from themselves is a good move.
They’re a circus. Players don’t like circuses. If they did, they’d all know how to juggle by now.
It has already been an interesting week at Mets and Yankees camp. Who knows what the next few days will bring?
It is the one guarantee the Yanks have, and it’s not a good one: Whoever follows Rivera won’t be as good as he was.
The baseball gods may just have doomed the Bombers to a bad season, a year where they get to see how the other half lives.
Sure, the Yankees are banged-up. But the Mets have the Johan Santana mess — plus an outfield by committee, and not a particularly great committee at that.
The only thing you need to know about the Jets’ future at quarterback is that they worked out David Garrard last Thursday and would apparently like to sign him in the coming days.
