“I think we took a step forward,” Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald told Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “Obviously we didn’t get to the ultimate goal, which we’re trying to reach, but it’s not over. I like the team. I’m not discouraged.”
Ike Davis might not be the only Met in danger of being demoted. According to a report, shortstop Ruben Tejada and outfielder Jordany Valdespin aren’t exactly on safe ground.
The club has “had several conversations with Roc Nation Sports about Robinson Cano’s future with the team,” Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner told reporters on Thursday, according to the New York Daily News.
“I respect the fans immensely,” Collins said. “I tell everybody that it’s about the fans. I don’t care who you’re a fan of. If you’re a baseball fan, you’re a fan, and certainly I meant no harm, no disrespect to them.”
Granderson was activated on Tuesday by the Yankees, and in the lineup against Seattle batting fourth and playing left field. New York optioned left-hander Vidal Nuno to Triple-A Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.

In a statement, Mantle’s kin said claims that “The Mick” used an altered bat are “outrageously false, misleading and deceptive … apparently for a quick buck and publicity.”
“The Mets, when (starting pitcher Matt Harvey) doesn’t pitch now, are so bad that it is embarrassing,” Francesa said. “They are so listless. They are so unwatchable. This is as bad as I have ever seen it. This is Craig Swan bad for these Mets.”
The New York Mets signed outfielder Rick Ankiel and started him in center field against the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. Ankiel was designated for assignment by the Houston Astros last week and cleared waivers on Sunday.
“I just want to get through one day without somebody asking me about the Victor Cruz negotiation,” Giants co-owner John Mara told Mike Francesa on Thursday afternoon.

Ladies and gentlemen, your Yankees lineup for Wednesday night in Colorado…
Die-hard fans have been screaming all along about New York’s turnaround. It just took the rest of us a little time to catch up.
“It’s the way it is,” Carlesimo told Mike Francesa. “I’m disappointed. I’m not a little disappointed, I’m tremendously disappointed, just because I feel strongly about what a great situation this was.”
