HOLBROOK, NY – FSS Here, You all know me by now, Let’s talk sports! Our topics: Giants Get Stomped, Hope For The Jets? Dodgers Land Yamamoto/Mets Making Moves
Giants Get Stomped
We will begin today’s proceedings with the New York Giants. Any playoff aspirations were put to bed on Sunday in the Big Easy, as the Saints took it the Giants in a 24-6 beatdown. Tommy DeVito was sacked 8 times on Sunday. EIGHT! As was the case the past decade, the Giants O-line is still the worst unit in the NFL. It truly is baffling how bad this specific unit of the team has been for so long. I trust Joe Schoen to get this thing back on track but Evan Neal looks like Ereck Flowers 2.o… (Yes, that’s actually how the former first-round pick spelled his first name). This upcoming offseason is a massive one – once again for the G-Men.
Hope For The Jets?
Aaron Rodgers announced this week that he WILL be returning to Gang Green for at least two more seasons. The Jets Just flat out got unlucky this season, in my opinion. Rodgers went down on the fourth play from scrimmage. It was a worst-case scenario For the upstart Jets, with an elite defense and special players like Garret wilson and Brecce Hall, The Jets will be Just fine next year.
Dodgers Land Yamamoto/Mets Making Moves
I have Breaking News for all of you here on MTM: the Los Angeles Dodgers have signed Yoshinobu Yamamto to a deal well worth over 300 million dollars. This feels like a massive punch in the gut to Mets fans. The Amazins must now pivot to a bunch of high quality arms. And yes, it seems like each week I come on here the Mets make some under-the-radar move to try to cover up the fact that they have a massive target on their backs to hang and compete with the Yankees and Dodgers.
The latest trade was for Adrian Houser and Tyrone Taylor, formally of the Milwaukee Brewers. That’s where David Stearns came from, FYI. My first reaction to this blockbuster was “Hmmm, not bad.” It was a refreshing change of pace from dumpster diving all offseason. Houser is a dependable back end starter and Taylor is a very good defensive outfielder with some pop. Taylor in particular peaked my interest. At 29, he has three more seasons of club control and will add much needed depth to a very thin outfield in New York.
That’s it for me. Feel free to comment below and… Happy Holidays
