Last week, Sandy Alderson told WFAN host Mike Francesa that re-signing the 34-year-old is a “possibility.” And Santana’s agent said on Tuesday that his client hasn’t ruled out re-signing with the Mets.
“I talked to Joe on two different occasions,” Steinbrenner said. “I made it clear to him that we do want him back. My family thinks he did a great job this season given everything that happened. We’re gonna try to work something out.”
Even though the opponent and venue figure to be difficult to deal with, Eli Manning is actually happy his Giants play again on Thursday. Then again, when you are 0-5 beggars really can’t be choosers.
“(It’s) embarrassing, ridiculous, infuriating, frustrating — whatever you want to say,” Francesa said. “It’s as bad as it could possibly be. It’s not even worth saying the season’s over. Everybody knows the season’s over.
The suit claims that Bud Selig and MLB have tried to smear Rodriguez’s reputation to “gloss over” Selig’s past inaction and tacit approval of the use of performance-enhancing substances in baseball.
For what feels like a lifetime, Mets fans have been hearing that THIS is the offseason. THIS is when it will all change. 2014 will be the year that the Mets FINALLY field a team that can contend. You’re up, Mr. Alderson.
This won’t be a season of style points for the Giants. If they do happen to turn things around they know they’ll have to take any break they can get, whenever they can get them.
“I think now we’re entering a new phase where the short-term becomes somewhat more important than the long-term,” Alderson said. “And that’s how we’re going to go at it.”
Joe Girardi told WFAN’s Mike Francesa on Thursday that he expects the Yankees to look a lot different next season, but is not considering himself one of the changes that will be made.
“There’s a lot of excitement. There’s a lot of unknowns,” Kidd said Tuesday. “Kind of feels like I just got traded from Phoenix here.”
Speaking to WFAN’s Mike Francesa during his normal spot on Monday, Manning disagreed with the notion suggested by former Big Blue linebacker Carl Banks earlier in the day that the Giants simply gave up during the 38-0 defeat.
“I’ve reached the point where I know that I’ve left everything I have out there on that field,” Pettitte said in a statement. “The time is right. I’ve exhausted myself, mentally and physically, and that’s exactly how I want to leave this game.”
A lot of people are criticizing Matt Harvey for choosing to delay possible surgery on his ailing right elbow. His manager, however, isn’t one of them.
To hear Eli Manning tell it, there are worse things than allowing 77 points and throwing seven interceptions in two games.
“I think he’s got most of the control,” Alderson told WFAN radio’s Mike Francesa on Tuesday. “I mean, it’s his body. He ultimately decides what’s in his best interest. All we can do is advise and recommend.”
