Palladino: Root Hard For A Jets Loss In Tennessee

When you sit down in front of the wide-screen Sunday at 4 p.m., pull out those blue, red, and silver pom-poms and root your head off — for those valiant Tennessee Titans.

Palladino: Collins’ Future Unfairly Tied To Mets GM’s Actions

After four years of failure, Terry Collins says the time is now to produce. If it doesn’t happen right away, if the Mets break slowly out of the gate, he knows he’ll be gone just as fast.

Palladino: Re-Signing Robertson Would Be Yankees’ Best Move At Winter Meetings

Imagine. Andrew Miller in the seventh, Dellin Betances in the eighth, and David Robertson to close. It’s the type of pen a lot of teams only dream about.

Palladino: Alderson, Cashman Have Work Cut Out For Them At Winter Meetings

Both teams have much to do. If they have a successful Winter Meetings, or at least lay the groundwork for some post-meetings deals, then perhaps they can talk about the postseason in a serious manner.

Palladino: Hiding Geno Smith Was Rex Ryan’s Act Of Defiance

Ryan knows Smith can’t win. He knows that drafting him last year was Idzik’s biggest mistake in a long line of them. Ryan may be defiant, but he is not insubordinate.

Palladino: Giants’ Season Truly Went To The Dogs Against Jags

You know your season has gone to the dogs when you can’t find an answer to a bunch of young Jacksonville cats.

Palladino: The Great ‘Donnie Baseball’ Will Have No Luck On Final Ballot

While our local baseball teams continue to track free agents and send out trade feelers, something else happened this week. The Hall of Fame voters received their ballots, and with them a bittersweet reminder of one former great.

Palladino: There’s No Tease Here —The Jets Are Losers, Period!

At least there is no illusion of quality. They are the real thing; authentically, undeniably bad. Monday’s train wreck only made it official. At least knowing that makes it easier to take.

Palladino: Count On It — Yankees Will Spend For Talent

Brian Cashman has holes to fill. He doesn’t have the farm talent to fill them all, or leverage for a trade. So that leaves free agency. It’s the Yankees’ way.

Palladino: Pitching-Rich Mets Can’t Entice The Perfect Trade Partner

The Mets need an upgrade at shortstop. The Cubs have shortstops in spades. What they don’t have is pitching. So what’s the problem?

Palladino: Tom Coughlin, Rex Ryan Will Go Out In Quite A Different Manner

In the end, both coaches will pay for their failings. The only difference will involve the method of payment.

Palladino: Another Giants Debacle — Does It Get Worse Than This?

New York’s playoff hopes effectively ended Sunday in a rain of turnovers. Now, it’s just a matter of what the final record will look like.

We won’t know Rex Ryan’s true fate until Woody Johnson tells us. And he’s not talking yet.

Palladino: Free Agency Won’t Be Easy For Yankees

The events of last week indicated that signing veteran hole-fillers won’t be as easy as the Bombers might have hoped. In fact, they may be faced with additional, internal issues sooner than later.

Palladino: Sadly, The Kids Have Followed A-Rod’s Example

In an age where accountability and integrity has become ever more important, it has become ever scarcer. And the kids are taking notes.
