    Dickey V. Gonzalez In Battle For Cy Young Love

    Tonight's matchup of the Mets and Washington Nationals gets about as anticipated as a game can get with no postseason at stake. The Mets, after all, have had just two Cy Young winners in their 50 year history -- Tom Seaver (1969, 1973 and 1975) and Dwight Gooden (1985). I don't know whether R.A. Di ... More >>

    Rest in Peace, Gary Carter

    ​The obits you're going to be reading tomorrow for Gary Carter, who died of brain cancer yesterday at age 57, will probably tell you everything about him except this: many New York area sportswriters laughed at him behind his back. I know -- I was there. I saw it. In their defense, Gary Cart ... More >>

    Knicks' Point Guard Jeremy Lin Does the Impossible

    Phenoms who come in under the sports radar are almost exclusively confined to baseball. There are so many examples of this that they almost defy counting -- a 19-year-old Dwight Gooden matures early, just a year out of high school and can suddenly throw a 97 mph fastball past experienced major leag ...

    Those Glorious '86 Mets — Hey, Where Are the Celebrations on Their Silver Anniversary?

    Strawberry!Did I miss it, or has someone written tributes to the 1986 Mets that I didn't see? October 18 marks the 25th anniversary of the first game of the great 1986 World Series, and we just passed the 25th anniversary of perhaps the greatest division series ever, the one with the Houston Astros ...

    Why The Mets Are Only Going to Get Even Worse

    ​Just when you think things can't get any worse for the Mets, you think they can get worse. As Bill Madden points out in today's Daily News, the Mets don't have much to look forward to in the free agent market this winter "when the two biggest sluggers coming to the market, Albert Pujols an ...

    Dwight Gooden? Have These Guys Never Heard Of a Guy Named Seaver?

    ​The Lineup lost its last shred of credibility this week -- I think I used this lead a few weeks ago but I'm going to use it again -- with their selection for New York baseball's greatest all-time pitcher. Not with the selection of Mariano Rivera as best closer -- thankfully no one embarrassed ... More >>

    Jockbeat: The Beguiling Power of Mike Tyson

    In the interest of full disclosure, James Toback owes me money.  At a party in 1992, he assured me that if Evander Holyfield ever met Mike Tyson, Tyson would surely destroy him. We made a $100 bet. You know how that one turned out.  At a memorial service for Pauline Kael in the winter of 2 ... More >>
