Take Sanchez, flawed as he may be, and solve this quarterback puzzle ASAP. Name him your starter. Smith will be there for the future, whether that arrives in October or midseason, or in 2014.
Welcome to the NFL, MLB! In case the tone here is confusing, let us clarify. This is not a good thing. Not at all.
Cy Young? Maybe, maybe not. But Hiroki Kuroda has pitched well enough to dream. And Matt Harvey’s season speaks for itself. It would be nice if the year ended with a little positive history.
These catastrophes in first preseason games can’t be taken too seriously. What can, though, is the overall body of a summer’s work.
If this was the end of May, the question would hold no interest of all. Of course, launch Collins. He was on the verge of losing the locker room. But things change during a baseball season.
While the end of the beginning of the Alex Rodriguez mess arrived Monday, the beginning of the end unfolded in Chicago for another great player.
No lifetime ban? MLB is about to send a clear message — that baseball will welcome back any offender, no matter how heinous his involvement in PEDs.

Do something for the fans, the ones who faithfully come out and sit in those expensive seats, whether behind the plate or in the bleachers, to watch this injury-depleted, controversy-entangled team. Do something to show them they count.
The read-option is not the Wildcat. Nor should it be used as a substitute package. Do that, and coach Rex Ryan will simply be repeating the Tebow mistake.
Alex Rodriguez hasn’t been part of the team. He is not a distraction, but simply a sideshow. It’s the only issue of which he is guiltless.
As Harvey wins, he continues to improve his mound virtuosity. He’s not just throwing gas. He’s learning how to actually pitch, and quickly.
While it might seem to us like these guys should have better things to think about, like taking the next step in their careers, let’s remember that these are two young, unattached players.
The game belongs to the players, coaches, managers and owners. If they want it clean, they have the power to make it so, even if it becomes extremely uncomfortable for the guilty few. They need only to come together and get it done.
