  1. Heads are starting to roll.........

    The regular season in baseball is over. Playoffs begin Tuesday. Also-rans are already cutting dead weight.

    In Washington, that means the Nationals weren't wasting any time bidding farewell to Matt Williams, one year removed from Manager of the Year. Unfortunately, the brain-dead decision making that cost him the NLDS vs. San Francisco last year ultimately did him in this year. A blind man could see this coming as soon as the Nationals were overtaken by the Mets.

  2. Remembering Yogi Berra

    I never saw Yogi Berra play. I was but a toddler when he retired after the 1964 season. The first memories I have of him, then, were when he was managing the Mets to the 1973 World Series, a 7 game thriller that they lost to Oakland, during the Athletics' run of 3 straight titles. I remember the commercials he made for Yoo Hoo, Miller Lite, and Aflac, the latter two playing off his reputed penchant for roundabout statements.

    When the late George Steinbrenner fired Yogi 16 games into ...

  3. It's never easy in New York

    If for some strange reason the Mets don't reach the World Series, much less get out of the Division Series (likely vs. the Dodgers), don't be hating and blaming it on manager Terry Collins and GM Sandy Alderson. There's only one real candidate for blame, and that is the greediest piece of human flotsam there is. Scott "20 Mule Team" Boras.

    About three or four weeks ago, Boras whined in the press about Mets ace Matt Harvey, one of his bazillion clients (read: brainwashed ...

  4. Nikki Bella should not be a champion

    I don't watch WWE much anymore. Repetitive, stale, tired storylines. An owner who's out of touch with reality refusing to let his miracle worker son-in-law take over and work the same magic he's created in NXT. Need I go on? Well, I have to.

    For all of the praise heaped on Triple H for his work in retooling NXT down in Florida, he's forced to play the role his father-in-law, Vince McMahon, should've retired long ago, that of the evil, corrupt administrator, a storyline role that should've ...

  5. It feels like 1969 (or 1973) all over again

    No one thought the Mets would make the playoffs this year. Admittedly, I had them pegged for 2nd and at least in the hunt for a wild card.

    Then again, one could imagine the pundits felt the same way in 1969, when the Mets won their first World Series, and in 1973, when the Mets won the East with a late stretch run, and fended off Cincinnati before losing a 7-game World Series to Oakland.

    But as the Mets head home following an 8-2 road trip that saw them win the last ...
