Report: Mike Piazza, Mets Are Not On The Best Of Terms

Piazza was honored on the final day that Shea Stadium stood in 2008, but since then he hasn’t had much of an association with the franchise. His relationship has, in fact, “cooled some over time,” according to a report.

Keidel: Want That Lombardi Trophy, Jets Fans? Sanchez Must Be The ‘Sanchize’

Mark Sanchez has many years left in the league, but he has this year to prove that his first two years were more representative than the last two. Another 8-8 season could cement his fate as a second or third-tier quarterback.

Coutinho: Firing Bobby V Would Be A Massive Mistake For The Red Sox

I have spent much of my baseball life around Bobby Valentine. He is as good a baseball man as I’ve ever known, and I think he is the man who could lead the Boston Red Sox out of the wilderness.

Kallet: Amid Another Lost Mets Season, A Look Back To Happier Times — Opening Day 2006

In light of Monday’s brutal loss, I couldn’t help but think back to the good old days — when the organization had a plethora of talent and the sky seemed to be the limit. It wasn’t 25 years ago, although it feels like it might as well have been.
