What David Robertson’s Departure Says About the Yankees

What David Robertson’s Departure Says About the Yankees

When the Yankees inked Andrew Miller to a 4-year deal last week, they had the makings of one of the best late inning bullpens in all of baseball. After struggling in the starter role for his first 5+ seasons, Miller reinvented himself and became one of the most dominant setup men in the game. With Dellin Betances coming off a suberb rookie season, it looked,...

Our Runner Ups for Best Headshot

Our Runner Ups for Best Headshot

This summer, Deadspin ran a quick article about the greatness of Texas kicker, Nick Rose’s, headshot. Here are our 2 runner ups: Former Oakland A’s Starting Pitcher Dallas Braden While his playing career was defined by his Mother’s Day perfect game, I’ll always remember him for this headshot. Braden never forgot his Stockton, California...

Jake Peavy: Worst Postseason Pitcher Ever?

Jake Peavy: Worst Postseason Pitcher Ever?

A lot of attention has been given to James Shields this October, and rightfully so. The nickname ‘Big Game’ couldn’t be less applicable to a guy with an ERA north of 6.00 over 5 postseason starts, a stat line that will clearly impact his wallet this winter. But tonight fans will have a chance to see a guy who has arguably been the worst...

Just a Reminder, Nelson Cruz Could’ve Been a Met…

Just a Reminder, Nelson Cruz Could’ve Been a Met…

I have a hard time lettings things go. It’s a major character flaw and I hope to conquer it one day. But, the Mets not signing Nelson Cruz to a 1 year contract for $8M will forever taint my memory. Instead, we got Chris Young and Curtis Granderson. CHRIS...

Re2pect for The Captain

Re2pect for The Captain

Some of you don’t like Derek Jeter – your message has been received, loud and clear. But, I do like Derek Jeter. In fact, watching him play for these past twenty years has been an absolute joy. I am neither a Yankees fan, nor a Yankees hater. I simply enjoy those athletes, in any sport, that do things the right way. I’m not talking about off...

This Week’s Debate: Should MLB do more to speed-up the game?

This Week’s Debate: Should MLB do more to speed-up the game?

This Yankees fan knows how slow the game of baseball has become. It has gotten slower, though – hasn’t it? Borderline unbearable at times? Scary thing is, years ago, when confronted by the “anti-baseball factions” in my life, I used to defend this game to the ends of the Earth. Not anymore. They used to tell me how “slow”...

Pete Rose was NOT a Singles Hitter

Pete Rose was NOT a Singles Hitter

If you missed last night’s show, or just want to re-listen to our interview with the great Pete Rose, you can hear the interview in its entirety by clicking the link below. In true Pete Rose fashion, things got testy right away, when Mike compared him to Derek Jeter and called the two of them great ‘singles hitters’. Rose jumped all over him,...

What Would You Ask Pete Rose?

What Would You Ask Pete Rose?

Some interviews are easy. If a guy is coming on to plug his book, you breeze through a few pages, pick out a story or two, and let him sell it. If a coach is prepping for March Madness, you let him tell you about his team, his game plan, his potential opponents. But when you have an icon like Pete Rose booked, how can you possibly cover all of the topics you...

Will Andrew Heaney be This Year’s Jose Fernandez?

Will Andrew Heaney be This Year’s Jose Fernandez?

Marlins prospect Andrew Heaney will make his major league debut against the Mets tonight (could a rookie ask for a better break than that??). The Marlins’ farm system has been pumping out major league ready players for the past several years (Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, Marcell Ozuna to name a few), with the crown jewel to date being last...

The Mets Are Moving to… Montreal?!?

The Mets Are Moving to… Montreal?!?

Good riddance! J to the K, hombres. I know I’ve been really Stan Harsh on Los Mets this season. I gave up on them after opening day and then labeled them the Worst Baseball Team after the Cubbies (the ACTUAL worst team in baseball at the time) swept them. But, never did I suspect all the managerial and executive level shenanigans would be part of some kind...

The Mets Have Become The Worst Team in Baseball, The Cubs

The Mets Have Become The Worst Team in Baseball, The Cubs

Hey, Mets fans! How does it feel knowing that your team’s top executives are completely content feeding us the same mediocre manure day in and day out and we keep eating it like it’s filet mignon? We’re the Lovable Losers! We’re the Cubs!  I have to give guys like Santa credit for sticking by a team that hasn’t won a goddam World...

And You Thought NY Fans Were Tough?

And You Thought NY Fans Were Tough?

Well that escalated quickly. This guy single-handedly tore apart the notion that San Diego fans were nothing but Jack Johnson-loving, flip-flop wearing surfers. This offseason the Padres rewarded second baseman Jedd Gyorko’s 23 HR rookie campaign with a 5 year, $35 million deal. Gyorko did not return the favor. Through the first third of the season...

Who is Michael Conforto?

Who is Michael Conforto?

Last year the Mets took 17 year old first baseman Dominic Smith with the 11th overall pick. Scouts loved Smith’s swing, but his age, and lack of power production to date (0 HR’s in 222 plate appearances in A-ball this year) mean it’ll be a half a decade before Mets fans can expect to see him in Queens. Tonight, the Mets used the 10th overall...

ERA is Still the Only Stat that Matters

ERA is Still the Only Stat that Matters

A new baseball stat is born everyday it seems. And as a general rule of thumb, if it takes you more than one sentence to explain what the stat actually means, I immediately tune it out. Because, at the end of the day, the only stat that really matters is ERA. Now wins is a stat I still value, even though the trendy thing to say nowadays is that it’s...

Norwalk Tops McMahon 7-6!!

Norwalk Tops McMahon 7-6!!

In a back and forth game, the Norwalk Bears hold on for a 7-6 win over the Brien McMahon Senators. The win locked up a State Playoff birth for the Bears. It was a great game from both sides. CLICK HERE to listen to the replay. Share...

Norwalk High vs Brien McMahon – Listen LIVE

Norwalk High vs Brien McMahon – Listen LIVE

The best rivalry in CT continues tonight as the Norwalk Bears meet up with their crosstown foes the Brien Mahon Senators. This is a game both teams always have marked on their calendars before the season, but this year there’s more on the line as both teams need a win to keep their state playoff hopes alive!! The Tri-State Sports Guys will be...

Dodgers’ Stud Prospect Alex Guerrero has Part of his Ear Bitten Off by Teammate!!

Dodgers’ Stud Prospect Alex Guerrero has Part of his Ear Bitten Off by Teammate!!

This is not a joke. Cuban defector Alex Guerrero, who was signed by the Dodgers this offseason for 4 years, $28 million, got into a major altercation in the dugout this afternoon with teammate Miguel Olivo Multiple sites are confirming the story, but this article from NBC Sports basically sums it up. The picture above is from a blog called Sting Em Bees and...

Interview with Mookie Wilson!!

Interview with Mookie Wilson!!

Last week we interviewed one of the most beloved Mets of all time, Mookie Wilson. Casual fans know him for his role in the infamous Buckner play, but those who followed the Mets in the 80’s remember him for much more. He brought the same charm that won over New York to our show, as he came on to discuss his new book Mookie: Life, Baseball and the...

Yo, Holmes! Peep This Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Baseball Jersey

Yo, Holmes! Peep This Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Baseball Jersey

I hate the Cardinals, but I love me some Fresh Prince. The “Bel-Air” themed jersey you see will be worn by the Cardinals Single-A affiliate State College Spikes and I can only hope MLB allows Prince Fielder to have his own graffiti-laced jersey for eternity. Image is via The Big Lead Share...

The NY Media has the Matt Harvey Pic All Wrong

The NY Media has the Matt Harvey Pic All Wrong

My first reaction to seeing Matt Harvey’s post surgery picture was ‘This is great.’ My second thought was ‘Here comes the phony outrage.’ Within minutes, the twitter-verse and sports talk radio were flooded by folks who were offended but the sight of Harvey flipping the bird to the camera. The majority admitted that they...

Zuki & Ruggs Show

Zuki & Ruggs Show

Zuki and Ruggs discuss UCONN’s triumph in the NCAA tournament, where the UCONN women’s program rank amongst all-time sports dynasties, the men’s improbable run to the title, whether or not Geno or Ollie should test the NBA, opening week in baseball including Josh Hamilton’s stupidity and whether or not baseball should implement a...

Bartolo Colon Meme is Heavy on Funny

Bartolo Colon Meme is Heavy on Funny

As if my rants online (getting off the Mets Fans emotional rollercoaster) and on this week’s show weren’t enough to convince you the Mets are a circus right now, here come the memes, specifically the ones about Bartolo Colon being a super awkward batter. BC clocks in at 5’11” and 285 lbs. I’ll let that sink in for a sec. Okay, now...

Ride the New York Mets Fans Rollercoaster of Emotions Because I’m Getting Off

Ride the New York Mets Fans Rollercoaster of Emotions Because I’m Getting Off

There’s no way Yankees fans have to endure this year in and year out. To be completely honest, the majority of Yankees fans don’t ‘show up’ until September when it’s playoff time. It’s sad to know that I WILL DEFINITELY be thinking EVERY SINGLE ONE of these thoughts laid out by Buzzfeed. Damn you, Metropolitans. I remember...

Should the Mets Pursue Eduardo Nunez?

Should the Mets Pursue Eduardo Nunez?

For months Mets fans have been begging Sandy Alderson to sign Stephen Drew. But for all the fair criticism heaped upon the Mets’ GM, the price for Stephen Drew simply outweighed his value. At the advice of his agent Scott Boras, he turned down the Red Sox qualifying offer of 1 year, $14.1 million. This set his speculated asking price somewhere in the 3...

MLB Opening Day Calls For a First Pitch Fails Video

MLB Opening Day Calls For a First Pitch Fails Video

Opening Day! Sort of. I haven’t been on the show the past … 3 weeks… Jesus… sorry about that, but if I were, you’d know that I despise the way baseball rolls out the start of their season. Ask the general public when Opening Day for baseball is and you’ll get a bunch of scrunchy fart-faces. Did you know it was friggin’...
