    Obama Speech, Trayvon Protests Lure Rightbloggers Into Another Week of Hilarious Minority Outreach

    The George Zimmerman trial is over, but Trayvonmania continues. President Obama, who'd previously said that if he'd had a son, he'd look like Trayvon, last week went further, saying that the unarmed black kid shot dead in 2012 "could have been me 35 years ago." And over the weekend "Justice for Tra ... More >>

    The Straw That Fouls The Drink

    "Reggie," says Joe Torre in the wake of the latest Reggie Jackson flap, "is just being Reggie." Yes, indeed, Reggie was just being Reggie when he made his inflammatory comments in the current issue of `Sports Illustrated. And once again we are reminded that the real Reggie is a self-centered jerk. ... More >>

    How Does The Mets 1962-2012 All-time Team Stack Up to The Yankees?

    Derek Jeter: What Are the Yankees Going to Do With Him?

    ​Derek Jeter is my favorite player -- that is, my family's favorite player. I have played the 3,000th-hit homer over and over. It is my favorite baseball moment of the new century, with the possible exception of Johnny Damon's race to third base in the World Series against the Phillies. Now, ... More >>

    Alex Rodriguez and 600 -- Is He Finally a Yankee Now?

    Thanks, A-Rod. Thanks for dumping a cold, wet corpse on the doorstep of New York baseball. That seems to be the local sports media's reaction to Alex Rodriguez's 600th major league home run, which put him 7th on the all-time home run list. Not the fans' reaction -- they've turned out in droves and, ... More >>

But he's still not in the same league as Reggie Jackson as a postseason hitter, the radio call-in shows keep reminding us. If that's your perception, then look at the following ... More >>
