St. John’s Off-Season Moves, Giants Expectations, Thoughts on Jorge Lopez

PORT JEFF, NY – Respecting the worry of Ranger fans this morning, let’s talk about other stuff. Here’s what I came up with: St. John’s Off-Season Moves, Giants Expectations, Thoughts on Jorge Lopez

St. John’s Off-Season Moves

The red storm has had as good of an off-season as anyone in college basketball, landing two of the top guards in country; Kadary Richmond and Devion Smith. The first true “miss” of the off-season was losing out on Texas forward Dillon Mitchell, who committed to Cincy. While that was happening, Jordan Dingle and Chris Ledlum lost their appeal for another season of eligibility. The #NCAA has been giving out extra years since the 2020 season. Since Ledlum and Dingle are both Ivy League transfers, there is no reason as to why they should have been denied,  as the Ivy League did not have a season during the pandemic. This ruling seems a bit unfair, the Johnnies will look to add a PF in the upcoming days.

Giants Expectations

It has been an adventurous offs-eason for Big Blue. Saquon Barkley has left for the rival Eagles. Malik Nabers headlined another top ten pick. Brian Burns was added to punctuate an elite pass rush… On the surface, the Giants have some pieces that can compete. BUT…  from a tale as old as time: Can the offensive line hold up? Can Danny Dimes finally put together a complete season? Or at least what he did in 2022? If Jones is unable to recapture what he did in his last full season, perhaps Brian Daboll can unlock something in former first round pick Drew Lock – who was signed to be the backup, (or compete for the starting job, depending on who you ask)… The other side of the ball is what I’m bullish about. With the addition of the aforementioned Burns, along with Dexter Lawrence, Deonte Banks, Bobby Okereke  and Kayvon Thibodaux,  the Giants’ defense has the potential to be as good a unit as anyone in football.

 Thoughts on Jorge Lopez

Jackson Sternberg

If you had not heard, after the latest Mets meltdown, reliever Jorge Lopez threw his glove into the front row after getting ejected. Much has been made as to what Lopez actually said after the game. In my opinion, it doesn’t matter what he said. If Steve Cohen is serious about building a culture here, stuff like that can’t happen. It’s hard to try and find some silver linings about this Mets team, but I’m sure all the sickos here at MTM (including myself) will also tune in.

Until next time, LFGM!!
