Stamford, CT: Generally I’d be on beach right now, drinking a Waytooearly Margarita. But infants can’t do a thing for themselves, it turns out, so I’m stuck here in the dead of winter. It’s Presidents Day as I write, or as it will now be called, I Don’t Know, Someone Gave Me That Information Day! While […]

CLIFTON PARK, NY – Ideally I would have liked to have written an entire column on the NBA’s All-Star Weekend, but, to be honest, I didn’t see much of it. And it’s not that I didn’t want to watch it, I was just doing other things. At the very least, I will add a few […]

Woes, Not Wins For Mets? Wheeler, Walker and Wright Are Wrong.

MARLBORO, NY – Hope springs eternal… but I’m already here to rain on the Mets parade before the season starts. There are some red flags as we speak and little has been done again by Mets management to address the infield and, of all things, the pitching. “W’ stands for wins in baseball but for […]

NEW YORK, NY – Granted, Spring Training has all a bit giddy… distracted even. And that’s partly why we didn’t get this piece up earlier. (Not communicating with Junior Blaber and Grinding Ax didn’t help). But baseball be damned, as we have some other stories that caught our eye/tickled our fancy. With that, here our […]

NY Rangers Keep Pace Despite Isles, Mets and Yanks Upbeat

NEW YORK, NY – The NY Rangers have been playing well of late, last night’s capitulation to the hated Islanders aside. They’ve been keeping pace with the Penguins and Blue Jackets. They’re safe in the first Wild Card slot for now, which would put them on a collision course with Les Canadiens de Montreal in […]

SPANISH HARLEM – Hello Baseball! Oh how I have missed you. There is nothing like Spring Training Baseball, when every team thinks it has a chance.. Every young outfield prospect is Mickey Mantle and every veteran pitcher is coming into camp the healthiest and strongest they ever been. The highs are the highest because reality […]

BRONX, NY – Writing this on Valentine’s Day night and, for once, it’s a welcome distraction. My kid’s been eating candy all day and I need to tune out the sugar-charged hyperactivity. Since it’s V-Day, I’ve decided to focus on matters of the heart or, rather, lack thereof. Sports Owners. At the top of the list […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Cruz Cut, Knicks Stun, Rangers Lacking, Who Stole Tom Brady’s Jersey?

STAMFORD, CT: In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ll of course be focusing on the big news that Derek Jeter is going to be a father. Or not… I could write about the Knicks shocking victory over the Spurs, and how it might affect the possibility of a Melo trade or maybe the Rangers’ need of a steady blue-liner to […]

WILKES-BARRE, PA – Part of me wanted to use this column to just discuss the GRAMMYs. But that wouldn’t be very responsible of me, would it? Either way, there were some interesting things to happen in sports over the last week. I won’t take any longer with my introduction. Let’s get right to it. Here’s […]

More Rob Manfred MLB Rule Changes? Blame Millennials!

MARLBORO, NY–Simply aghast is how to describe a baseball news item I read over my morning coffee. At first glance I thought the report was more along the lines of “fake news” made famous by our President. I even looked at the source of the article expecting The Onion to be responsible for my rising […]
