Pineda and Sabathia have to keep on climbing so the Yanks can keep on climbing. So far, so good. But they should know one thing. The trail won’t flatten out any time soon. It only becomes steeper.
Alex Rodriguez’s legacy will not include a plaque in Cooperstown. No so with fellow cheater Tom Brady. Like it or not, it’s just the way it is.
You cheat, you get caught, you get punished. That’s simple. Much harder is making the punishment fit the crime.
That bed Mets GM Sandy Alderson made with Wilmer Flores is starting to feel awfully lumpy. He should at least change the sheets.
