BRONX, NY – After what’s already been a fairly brutal summer (heatwaves, forest fires, and the inextinguishable dumpster fire at the White House), we move into the truly dreadful days of mid- to late-August.

HIGHLANDS, NC – I’m on vacation in the middle of nowhere. Almost no cell service, limited WiFi access, basically a Millennial’s nightmare. I’m not even all that sure what’s going on in sports.

NEW YORK, NY – 24-year-old popster Justin Bieber got engaged the other day to Stephen Baldwin’s 21-year-old daughter (good luck with that father-in-law, Biebs), and the kids couldn’t seem happier. That’s the way it always is at the beginning: you’re going to great restaurants, getting bombed, having sex all the time, living in the “now,” and […]

WASHINGTON HEIGHTS, NY – Losing a loved one is never pleasant. Losing someone that had a joy for life and was serious about having fun, makes it more difficult.

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 […]

Big Ben Tuesday: Cashman and Double-Agent Jeter Collude in Giancarlo Stanton Christmas Miracle

SANTA’S WORKSHOP, NORTH POLE – It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christ-mas. The Yankees did some early shopping and reeled in the biggest fish, Giancarlo Stanton. And man, does he look sharp in pinstripes. The cacophony of whining that followed was like snack time at nursery school. The Empire Rises Deep in the bowels […]
