I just don't get it.
With a week to go before the trade deadline, the Yankees traded away fireballing closer Aroldis Chapman to the NL Central leading Chicago Cubs, getting back reliever Adam Warren and three minor leaguers in return. Warren, based on what I'd read, didn't quite find a comfort zone in Chicago, perhaps unhappy about being forced to leave the Bronx after last season. Now, he comes home, and the Yanks have wasted money spent on a marketing campaign.
I don't know who gave Mets GM Sandy Alderson the idea that Daniel Murphy was expendable after his October home run barrage. Yes, the fact remains he ran out of gas in the World Series, and New York lost in 5 to Kansas City. For some reason, the Wilpons decided they didn't need Murphy anymore, and, oh, how he has made them pay in the first 3 1/2 months of the season.

It has been the longest running con job in broadcasting history. Yes, it'll come to an end soon, but not soon enough.

Twice in the last three weeks, in the WNBA & NFL drafts, there were chances of players with ties to my home turf getting drafted. Unfortunately, the pro leagues have once again treated upstate New York like the late Rodney Dangerfield. No respect!
Start with the WNBA. Jamaican-born Shereesha Richards, who makes her off-season home in New Jersey, was assumed to be a lock to be taken in the draft after dominating the America East in 4 seasons at the University at Albany. Didn't
It's safe to say that 2015 was a lost season for Jenrry Mejia. Now, his career is lost, and, unless you buy into his denials, it's his own fault.
Mejia was forced to sit on the sidelines for most of 2015, and watched as his Mets teammates upset the applecart, won the NL East, eliminated Los Angeles and Chicago, and advanced to the World Series, where they fell in 5 games to Kansas City. Mejia was injured on Opening Day, opening the door for Jeurys Familia to have a breakout season
