Palladino: Losing Andre Brown Leaves Hole In Giants’ Backfield

Rashad Jennings, Peyton Hillis, Michael Cox and David Wilson. Does that make your mouth water? Well that’s what the Giants’ backfield looked like Tuesday after the news broke that Andre Brown signed a deal with the Texans.

Palladino: Daniel Murphy Did OK, Baby!

Players have been doing this for years now. It’s not like the old days. Women don’t birth their babies alone anymore. Now, it’s a team effort.

Palladino: Bobby Parnell Goes Down, And That’s Just The Mets’ Luck

Only the most optimistic would call the Mets “star-crossed.” Given the way they started the season, the more realistic among us might downgrade that assessment to “train wreck.”

Palladino: Uncertainty Abounds For Mets, Yankees As Season Opens

Until they start throwing around the old hardball for real, everybody’s even despite the obvious baggage the Mets bring against the Nationals on Monday or the improvements the Yanks take to Houston on Tuesday.

Palladino: Derek Jeter, World’s 11th Greatest Leader? Sure, Why Not?

There are different kinds of leaders, after all. And the Yankees captain did his thing as well as any of the others on Fortune Magazine’s list did theirs.

Palladino: Punting On First Base Does The Mets No Good

The first-base situation will not alone determine whether Alderson gets his wish for a 90-win season. But it will play a role. Alderson did Duda, Davis and himself no favors by punting the situation away on Tuesday.

Palladino: What Should Yankees Fans Expect From David Robertson?

Prepare to be unspoiled. Though D-Rob has shown a solid, “go get ’em” attitude on his six Grapefruit League outings, nobody knows how he’ll handle closer duties.

Palladino: For Jets, Michael Vick’s Impact Is Worth The Hassle

Jets GM John Idzik needs to make a signing here. He should do it because, quite honestly, Geno Smith is not the answer at quarterback.

Palladino: Reese’s Giants Just Hijacked Jets’ Offseason

At this point, with little left on the open market, Jets GM John Idzik looks like a hitchhiker on a lonely road; his thumb out, looking for a ride.

Palladino: Mets Shouldn’t Settle For Ruben Tejada At Shortstop

Typical Mets. Stephen Drew’s price tag is too high? Don’t pay. The timing of the signing would force them to give up a draft pick? Don’t sign until he comes for free.

Palladino: Giants Don’t Know It Now, But They’ll Miss Tuck

Big Blue did the smart thing money-wise. Probably football-wise, too. But in terms of leadership, they left themselves with a gigantic hole.

Palladino: Jets Should Put Revis-Cromartie Band Back Together

Are you ready for Dee Milliner and whoever manning the corners of the Jets’ secondary? Probably not.

Palladino: Frank Jobe, Tommy John Surgery Pioneer, Should Have Place In Hall

The recent activities of Matt Harvey and Manny Banuelos would have seemed inconceivable back in 1974, the year a brilliant surgeon named Dr. Frank Jobe started piecing torn-apart pitching elbows back together.

Palladino: Giants GM Reese Set To Balance Talent Equation

Twenty-seven free agents of all types and a 7-9 record just doesn’t add up. And bad math adds up to a lot of pink slips, even if it means a pile of green paper at the other end for the dearly departed.

Palladino: Victor Cruz At RB? Giants Shouldn’t Even Consider It

You have to admire Cruz for his willingness to subject himself to the rigors of backfield work, even if it’s just for the sake of gimmickry. But there’s no way the kid should play even a snap at running back.
