D*%& You Shane Greene!

First Nova, then Pineda, then Sabathia, now Tanaka. Injuries laid waste to our starting rotation. Soriano, Ichiro, Beltran, Jeter, Roberts, Thorton. Age diminishes us. The bullpen is overworked,...

Brian Roberts is Not the Problem

Yankee fans are restless, indignant creatures. A descent below .500 and the overall weakness of the team has spurred scapegoat hunting. No one liked that Brian Roberts was signed to start at...

Bulls' Draft Unlikely to Yield Immediate Excitement

Your excitement is warranted, but totally misplaced. This NBA draft will rock. Some many good players and the Bulls have two picks in the teens. They haven’t drafted so high since 2009 when they...

Open Letter to LeBron James

Dear LeBron, You’re in a great position. You’re still the game’s best player. You’ve shown your acumen transcends the court to the business world. You’ve won two titles. Your resume already...

The Yankees Should Prepare To Be Sellers

The Steinbrenners always blather on about putting a championship contender on the field. For the most part, they have. Even after the Yankees string of AL East titles ended, the 2007-2012 Yankees...

Thibodeau's Value

It sucks when you are stuck watching other teams or reading ridiculous internet rumors. It's unlikely that Thibodeau will go to the Lakers. But it does raise the question, what is Thibodeau's...

Creating the leverage to acquire Carmelo

Carmelo Anthony is a nice player and he's actually elite at scoring so the Bulls should obviously attempt to acquire him. Rumors state that Joakim Noah is recruiting him, but with the caveat that T...

Credit where credit is due

I just called Thibodeau stubborn for overplaying Noah, Butler and Augustin. Felt he was ignoring the obvious. That he wasn't going to change. One of the most heartening aspects of this win was that...

Thibodeau’s short rotation killing Bulls

The Bulls offensive limitations have been beaten like a dead horse. It’s obvious that they don’t have players that can create their own shots or consistently hit "bad" shots. The Bulls offense...

Emergence of surprise infielders will be just as crucial in 2015

The Yankee brass predicted Yangervis Solarte would force his way into the lineup and reach base 45% of the time while switching between second and third base. That's why they didn't sign Stephen...

Could the Mariners’ injury woes create an opportunity for the Yankees?

ESPN among others have reported that Hisashi Iwakuma and Taijuan Walker are unlikely to be healthy to open the season. Scott Baker and Randy Wolf are in the Mariners camp with minor league deals...

Which Godfather offer for Taj would you accept?

The Bulls seem pretty content with the team’s core and the opportunity to upgrade in the offseason so no trade seems likely. The most valuable trade trips are also players who are likely to...

Jeter, Relief and Appreciation

Relief. Relief was the first emotion I felt when I read that Derek Jeter was retiring. Relief that the Yankees wouldn’t have to plan around his increasing fragility, decreasing range and need...

Decision Time Draws Near For Dunleavy

Well, that game sucked. Tonight’s no-show against Sacramento reminded everyone why tanking was so popular a month ago. Sacramento’s vaunted defense was giving up an average of 104 points per...

The Unexpected Pleasure of This Season

I eagerly awaited this season. Finally a healthy Rose. Playoff Jimmy. Noah’s expanded game. 62 regular season victories seemed assured and an Eastern Conference finals beat down of Miami appeared...

Predictions, Eastern Conference

Last night’s games illustrated why it’s difficult to predict results, particularly in the Eastern Conference. Three tankers, Sacramento, Boston and Philadelphia, all won against teams trying to...

Can the Bulls trade Deng AND resign him?

The Bulls front office has maintained that they don't want to trade Deng because they are intent on resigning him and are confident they can do so. Thus they aren't shopping him. The team values...

Should the Yankees be done adding to the outfield?

In the rumors, the Yankees are in talks to deal an outfielder. Many fans have assumed that the addition of Ellsbury and Beltran has made Gardner superfluous and advocated that he should be dealt...

Imagine Soriano's Trade Value

Here is an interesting player comparison. Can you tell which one is Alfonso Soriano? Player A (2011-2013) 1837 PAs, .251 AVE, .300 OBP, 95 HRs, 282 RBIs Player B (2011-2013) 1749 PAs, .254 AVE,...

Embrace the Jacoby Ellsbury Deal

The general response to signing Jacoby Ellsbury fans has been pretty harsh. "7 years and 153M is terrible!" Or the enthusiastic, "who cares if it’s way too much, it’s not my money, this is...

Don't Wait to for Cano's Decision and Rodriguez's Resolution, Sign Infante Now

Robinson Cano's free agency and Alex Rodriguez's appeal loom over the Yankees offseason. Justifiably so at $50M/year, not to mention Cano's stellar play. Moreover, the possible posting of Masahiro...

Can the Yankees make the 2014 playoffs without Robinson Cano?

Given that the 2013 Yankees scored less runs than their opponents while looking old and feeble at the plate it is sometimes hard to imagine them returning to the playoffs without Robinson...
