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.
Chipper Jones personified what sports and competition are all about.
After the Mets complete their road trip in St. Louis, they return home to host the Atlanta Braves this weekend in what will be the final visit to Flushing for future Hall-of-Famer Chipper Jones.
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.
Even if neither New York team reaches its goals, their fans can rejoice in the fates of their foes: archrivals Boston and Philadelphia, who are a combined 30 games out of first place.

For sports fans in New York after 9/11, a baseball game at Shea Stadium was a capstone to a difficult time.
