NEW YORK, NY – The literal and figurative Hot Stoves are working overtime this week, especially in the northeast’s  bomb cyclone areas. With Spring Training but 3 fortnights away, MLB GMs are calling texting (see this) each other with hypothetical deals and promising propositions (Sandy Alderson aside, of course), that have us fans on the […]

MARLBORO, NY – It was on this date in 1915 that a German submarine sank the Lusitania and thrust the U.S. of A. into World War I. Present day sports has me reporting in a similarly negative manner on the New York Mets, New York Yankees and the NHL Playoffs. Abandon ship! Friday night’s comeback […]

Baseball P*ssies Jake Arrieta & Joe Maddon: Bryce Harper Ain’t Barry Bonds

12 Comments

WHITEFISH, MT – My all out effort to knock Genius Joe Maddon down a couple of couple of pegs seems to be losing steam.

COXSACKIE, NY – Spring ahead as the saying goes when it’s time to turn the clocks ahead in observance of daylight savings time – or the time where broken-down mopes like me complain about losing an hour of sleep despite a fruitful existence.

BRUINSVILLE, NY – A WWF wrestling script couldn’t have been penned any better than what was revealed recently regarding Alex Rodriguez. The villainous A-Rod returns from his 2014 season-long ban for steroid use when the Yankees open their Tampa training camp on February 20th fresh off a training session led by the reviled Barry Bonds.

NEWARK, NJ – Let’s face it. New York and Boston have a very tenuous relationship when sports are involved . Those Chowda Heads remind me of the Brits who still feel some false sense of superiority over those of us from the New York area. Who won that war, eh? This thing started with Harry […]

THE HEIGHTS, NY – As a child, my formative years centered around all four team sports. The first eight years in Washington Heights featured the earliest form of cable television, showing Madison Square Garden events. All were watched with regularity.
