    "Bullet" Bob Turley, R.I.P.

    It seems to be that discussion of the career of Bob Turley, who died Saturday morning at age 82, came and went all too quickly. Turley was very nearly a great pitcher. Between 1955 and 1958 he won 59 games for the Yankees and lost only 20, mostly starting but often, in Casey Stengel's wacky in-and-o ... More >>

    The World Baseball Classic: Where America Getting Creamed is a Good Thing, Apparently

    According to Bud Selig, the main purpose of the World Baseball Classic is to be "our great vehicle to internationalize the sport." This was apparently intended as the silver lining to Team USA's 5-2 loss to Mexico on Friday. Translated from Commissioner-ese into English, it meant, "Hey, it's no fun ... More >>

    Mets Front Office to Team: Don't be Too Good

    I've been waiting for someone in the New York press to suck up to the Mets front office by building an anti-R.A. Dickey case. I found it in Saturday's New York Post in a column by Ken Davidoff. Apparently at last week's holiday party for young victims of Hurricane Sandy Dickey showed "his true cha ... More >>

    Jon Stewart on R.A. Dickey: How Will the Mets Screw This Up?

    According to R.A. Dickey's agent, Bo McKinnis, negotiations between his client and the New York Mets are solid in terms of "a series of potential structures and lengths." What, then, are the sticking points? Bo says, "We've got a difference in terms of the actual dollars per season." In other ... More >>

    The Sleazy Mets

    Last month, Mets GM Sandy Alderson called R.A. Dickey "one of our two core players" in the Mets organization - the other, of course, being David Wright. On Thursday, Alderson changed his tone: "It would be a little unusual to trade Cy Young winner " - everyone is assuming, rightfully so I think, th ... More >>

    In Mets-Rays Match, Will R.A. Dickey Reach MVP Status?

    I'm trying to remember -- was last night the first time ever that Yankees fans rooted for the Mets and vice versa? The two teams helped each other out by whipping the others' division rivals, and in doing so, I think, helped give good definition of their teams' respective character. The Mets, beati ... More >>

    C.C. Sabathia: Just How Big a Problem?

    Sabathia: Weighty issue.​Everything about C.C. Sabathia is big, so I guess it's natural that his flaws are also big. After Saturday's disastrous outing with a 10-4 loss to the Red Sox at Fenway, Yankees fans must be worrying that C.C.'s big flaw could be fatal. You may have thought that Sunda ... More >>

    Yankees Fans, Are You Worried Yet?

    ​Be afraid, Yankees fans -- be very afraid. Though some are dismissing the Yankees' late-season slide saying, "After all, they're still going to make the playoffs," there's nothing good to be said about their performance over the last 10 games. On September 4, the Yankees were on an eight-g ... More >>

    Jockbeat: A Look at Mets Pitching for 2009

    Here's an incredible thought. If the 2009 Mets play like they did through 145 games in each of the last two seasons, they could win the National League's Eastern Division title -- or at least make the playoffs -- by simply going 9-8 over their last 17 games. That would be a two-game improvement over ... More >>
