Keidel: Raiders Spend Big On CarrDerek Carr took the Oakland Raiders from decent to dominant, and his new $125 million contract may look like a bargain in a few years.
Keidel: Is It Time For The Mets To Wave The White Flag?Do they unload some golden arm for a bat? Do they bring up a conga line of kids to see what they have?
Keidel: Only The Knicks Would Try To Undo The One Thing They've Gotten Right Lately -- Drafting PorzingisBut it turned out that Kristaps Porzingis, the 21-year-old, 7-foot-3 freak of athletic nature, is more than a building block or part of the plan. He's a franchise player, a monolith, as close to a unique talent the league has right now, someone nearly as big as Yao Ming yet can hit three pointers and dart to the rim like a small forward.
Keidel: There's No Reason Knicks Can't Land A Stud With 8th PickAs with everything and everywhere else, the Knicks didn't prosper in the lottery, languishing near the back-end of the, picking 8th. Just high enough to make you think they will pick a gem, but low enough to know that the best player will be long gone by then.
Keidel: With Tanaka In The Tank, Yankees Should Trade For A StarterWhen you approach July 4, you are, as Bill Parcells famously said, what your record says you. This isn't April, when a pair of three-hit games boosts your batting average 50 points, or when two quality starts lowers your ERA a full run or more.
Keidel: Hard To Hate These YankeesThe Yankees, built from the farm up with Gary Sanchez, Aaron Judge and others, currently lead the AL East, and it feels right.
Keidel: Everyone Will Watch Mayweather-McGregor, And That's The PointThe Mayweather - McGregor fight reflects society's appetite for the unusual, not the sad state of boxing.
Keidel: Eccentricities Aside, Beckham Is Worth A Massive New ContractNow that the pseudo-saga has ended, the Giants can exhale. Now, it's time for them to do the numbers and pay their superstar.
Keidel: Even Tradition-Rich Yankees Have Never Had A One-Two Punch Of Homegrown Sluggers Like Judge, SanchezWhen did the Yankees have twin sluggers of this heft enter their careers almost simultaneously? With the same, booming characteristics?
Keidel: Patriots' Prosperity Starts In The OffseasonNew England Patriots extend WR Julian Edelman's contract, another quiet offseason move likely to pay dividends for the Super Bowl champs.
Keidel: Why Colin Kaepernick Hasn't Been SignedNFL teams are clearly avoiding Colin Kaepernick, the former 49ers starting quarterback, or at least his public-relations baggage.
Keidel: Durant Might Finish On Top This Time, But LeBron's Still KingJust last summer, we were killing Durant for fleeing a team that had the Warriors down 3-1 in the Western Conference finals. And surely some of those same people are now kneeling at the Durant altar.
