NEW YORK, NY – Whilst the Major League Baseball season is over for many fans – in the sense that their team is golfing, cleaning gutters or tanning on some hurricane-friendly beach, we are still under its grip… We’re not ready to stop playing Tap Baseball on our phones. Not ready to end the the […]

CLIFTON PARK, NY – As I lay on my parents’ couch to write this column, I have mixed emotions. I should be ecstatic. The Buffalo Bills upset the Arizona Cardinals to keep their season alive. It was a win that nobody but me – and even I had my doubts – thought would happen. We […]

MLB Injury Coverup and Cheesy Bruin NFL Picks

7 Comments

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – This just in: apparently there is no wifi in Ft. Lauderdale! At least that’s what Cheesy Bruin is using as his excuse for not being front and centre (Canadian spelling for Angry Ward) today. But worry not, NFL gamblers, the Cheese Man still managed to text his winning picks for today, […]

The Most Entertaining Man in Sports: Fat, Old Bartolo Colon

9 Comments

FLUSHING, NY – The MLB’s Oldest Man doubles (pun intended) also as its Fattest Man. Without question, though, Bartolo Colon is also The Most Entertaining Man in Sports. There isn’t a Kevin James or Cedric The Entertainer lookalike out there that doesn’t at least consider that they could be successful in professional sports… because of […]

WEST MARIN COUNTY, CA – I’m feeling reflective today, as I wake up on the Tamales Bay out in Cali one last time. I’m out here for a memorial for my grandmother, who passed away this Spring. I know she had a nice long life, passing at 98, but it’s still hard to know that […]

These Are NOT Your Father’s Yankees

BRONX, NY – Bryce Harper, Matt Harvey, and Jake Arrieta will all be free agents after the 2018 MLB Season. Manny Machado, the brilliant young Baltimore 3rd baseman will be free to sign anywhere the year after that. I can only guess that this is part of Yankees GM Brian Cashman’s grand plan to remake […]

The Best Rotation in Sports

12 Comments

NEW YORK, NY – Full Disclosure: Today’s post is not about the Best Pitching Staff in Baseball – which is undoubtedly that of the New York Mets.  Instead, it’s about the MTM Rotation of Pundits, and we’d be more remiss than usual if we didn’t take a moment out to thank our very talented and […]

Gangrene Overcomes Giants, Gang Green Jets Rule NYC

31 Comments

FLORHAM PARK, NJ–  Any regular reader of this esteemed site can tell you that the Meet The Matts “editorial staff” tends to lean toward certain teams and sports over others.  I would scientifically suggest that more content here is focused on the Mets, Giants, Yankees, Cowboys, Rangers, and even Vikings (AW) than any others.

Daniel Murphy, Landry Jones and Chuck Pagano

FLUSHING, NY – Lawd Have Murphy! … That was the name of the 1985 Eddie Murphy tour. I got a souvenir t-shirt from the Binghamton Arena show – which I wore out by summer’s end, but now I hope similar t-shirts are being drawn up to celebrate Daniel Murphy (though would he object to the […]
