  1. Morse needs to seriously consider retiring. Bad for Buffalo, but them's the breaks.
  2. This makes a lot of sense. Solid "hold the fort" signing, which is about all the Jets can do at this point unless someone surprisingly good gets released soon.
  3. Context is important here. How does Douglas feel about this team right now? Does he think they can be serious playoff contenders? If so, then the roster might reflect more of a "win now" approach, and Polite might get cut. Or, does D look at this season as rebuild/evaluate. Then, you certainly keep Polite, keep him working hard, and see what happens down the line, even if you have to have him inactive some or most weeks. I'm not optimistic about him at all; he might just be a low NFL IQ guy who never gets what he needs to do to succeed at this level. But I'm guessing that Douglas will hang onto him at least for this year and see if JP develops at all.
  4. This is an okay move. No draft pick is "worthless," they are all possessions to be used wisely. One potentially good use of a 7th round pick is just what Joe did, grab a guy about to be waived who you feel will be claimed before you get a chance to. It is a conditional pick; do we even know yet just what the condition(s) are? Could be the Jets take a close look on the guy, move on from him or he gets hurt again, and get the pick back. OTOH, if he makes the team and stays relatively healthy, that's worth a 7th rounder for a guy who is not old, apparently talented (4th round pick), and started 10 games last year. See, that pick had some value. Joe is in Parcells style "hold the fort" mode. There's not much more he can do at this time than this.
  5. Sad loss. I remember reading Banks a lot. RIP Don.
  6. Always great to hear an pro athlete who speaks so well. So many just resort to a bunch of generic cliches and/or come off as, uh, less than intelligent. He looked great, too. What a nice, unexpected find for the Jets!
  7. Nice move! Let's hope RK has something left in the tank.
  8. 4th rounder. Taking on a big salary and a guy having trouble getting on the field consistently. If he really does want a new contract, hard pass.
  9. Show mercy on the Mets. Trade them for Robinson Cano! Pretty please?
  10. 0-5 now since the Mets showed some "fire" (according to a few fans) by bullying a beat reporter. Well done. Cano had 2 hits, though, making my post yesterday look prescient!
  11. Diaz now with an ERA near 5 and four blown saves. Cano hitting like .220-something. I hated the trade but never thought it would be this bad. Cano for 4 more years? Diaz is probably shell-shocked right now. What a mess. WWBD? What will Brodie Do? Watch Cano have a decent 2nd half, rally to around .265 or something. Still lousy, but some will think he's turned it around.
  12. See? I told you Calloway would apologize. It just took him two press conferences to do it! Keith Hernandez called today's events "ghastly." Good word for it. Calloway clearly is not apologetic, nor is Vargas. Hell hath no fury like a NY media scorned.
  13. I'm not defending Calloway, b/c I do think he needs to go, but he likely just lost his cool after being grilled by the beat writers for his confusing bullpen use. The team has already issued a public apology. If Calloway is not canned tomorrow, he'll probably personally apologize, as well. However, what's with Vargas going all macho thug or whatever? That one may take more than an apology to make things good with the media and maybe MLB.
  14. And the bullpen coach, too? A couple of scapegoats for Calloway and BVW.
  15. Probably getting close to Calloway being fired. He looks like dead man walking. Now 8.5 back, about to be passed by the Nats. That should stir the Wilpons. Scapegoat needed. The worse culprit here is BVW. What a disaster. Yeah, let's think "outside the box" and hire a pompous sports agent with a huge ego and no clue. Can we get Kelenic back? Just asking.
  16. Very happy! I'm much more optimistic about this guy than the last three GMs who were clearly not suited to being the boss. Certainly, Douglas might end up awful, too, as the Peter Principle is real and relentless. But, he looks like a good, legitimate GM prospect. His first task is to establish his dominance over Gase, no matter how friendly the two have been in the past. This is light years better than the Mets hiring Brodie boy.
  17. I had a conversation with friends about this recently, and people still think that Buckner lost the game! The Mets had already tied the game before Mookie's grounder was booted. Buckner should not have even been on the field.
  18. I'd be very surprised if the they start selling until July, if at all. They probably need to fall 10+ games back, and maybe fall to 4th place, before a fire sale might ensue.
  19. I wonder how much NASA had to pay the Soviet Union to stay quiet and not call us out on the fake landings? Must have been pretty expensive.
  20. Word is the Cavs covet Barrett and would love to deal for the #3 pick. They want to move up from #5. Fleece them for it. I also want no part of Kyrie "Flat Earth" Irving. Dude is no doubt talented, but a headcase full of himself. I hope the rumor that he will choose between the Nets and Lakers is true. I'd rather try for Kemba Walker as a sidekick for Durant.
