SPANISH HARLEM – If you’re a New York Yankees fan this is not the way you wanted or expected this team to start the season. You often hear the words “It’s a marathon, not a sprint,” yet I know for sure that some fans (me) are freaking out. The injuries have not helped at all […]

BRONX, NY – As much as I’ve been complaining about sports lately – even more than I usually do – the beginning of baseball season always brings some fun feats, plays and results.

EL BARRIO, EL FALLS: I am back in upstate New York. I survived my trip to the Bronx, if only just barely. It was great to see the family and do something special, though. But before Big Ben Whitney shows up to protest another one of my introductions, let’s get to the menu for today:  […]

0 Comments

WASHINGTON, DC – The irony is that the headline doesn’t represent the team this post originates from, the Washington Nationals… and they are pretty good on paper, too. Do we suddenly have Major League Baseball’s best division in the National League East?! Are we looking at the NL Beast, what with Bryce Harper & his […]

Replacement Matt on Opening Day: Greatest Replacements in History

0 Comments

SUBURBIA, NJ – Since the beginning of this site I have somehow been given the designation of Replacement Matt, basically because I shared a (lack of) hairstyle with the two original Matts and was foolish enough to be willing to wear a blue monkey suit when one of them wasn’t around.

BRONX, NY – “It is awfully easy to be hard-boiled about everything in the daytime, but at night it is another thing.” So goes the Hemingway line from one of my favorite books, The Sun Also Rises. It’s a good line because it’s true. It’s much easier to deal with things in the in the light of […]

SPANISH HARLEM – The rosters are set and it’s time to play some real games. The New York Yankees go into the season with issues, missing their number 1 starter to begin the season. Not the way you want to start but the world waits for no one. I have found that the greatest thing […]

MARLBORO, NY – Don’t focus on the past. “Think of what’s ahead of you,” is what motivational speakers would like to have us think in leading our lives. When it comes to sports, I’d really rather not think of what’s forthcoming because, quite frankly, it sucks for the most part. Maybe you feel differently but […]
