When real life invades sports, that’s when the true measure of an athlete is taken. The rest is a storybook.
There’s no reason for this team to be floundering at home. An attitude adjustment, not shorter fences, is what this squad needs.
These days, tight end is an offensive position. So is it any wonder that the Jets’ second-round draft pick, Jace Amaro, is being handed a bushel full of expectations?
Thank goodness for Masahiro Tanaka. Without him, who knows where the Yankees would be right now. Where they’ll be in another month is quite a different story.
We all know about Masahiro Tanaka. In fact, we have known about him and his magical splitter for months and months. The guy we don’t know about may be the real treat of this game.
Whether any of these guys pan out is for the future. For now, needs were met, expectations were raised. While history was made in St. Louis, the Giants and Jets found plenty of potential.
Between great players and great managers, the Yankees will soon run themselves into a laundry shortage. Well, not really. The numbering can go up to 99 after all. But you get the gist.
Anything is possible for a general manager trying to fill so many holes, with so many picks at his disposal.
Given the presence of a longtime starter and a capable, if unspectacular back on the roster, should Big Blue consider taking a quarterback in one of the first three rounds of this week’s draft?
Attention all you semi-loyal, on-the-fence, wishy-washy Mets fans. Only 12 days remain to get tickets for the May 14-15 Subway Series with the Yanks at Citi Field. Of course, you probably didn’t know that was happening.
The NBA can’t legislate thought. But it can do something about the thinkers who just don’t fit in with its goals or image. Adam Silver did that Tuesday, perfectly.
A number of mock drafts have the Giants taking North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron with their 12th pick on May 8. They may be right. But Big Blue has other needs, too.
John Farrell misused a valuable piece of information. And with one rash decision, Boston’s manager might have done the Yanks a huge favor.
This can all blow up in Terry Collins’ face over the next few days, weeks or months. But for now, he can’t argue with what his starters have done lately.
Nobody wins divisions in April. But a team can certainly dig itself a hole deep enough to lose one. The Yanks prevented that Sunday — against a team many pick as the cream of the AL East crop.
