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’...

Amazin’ CGI Mets Videos Predict Baseball’s Future

Amazin’ CGI Mets Videos Predict Baseball’s Future

Via Marc Rienzo on Dailymotion There’s been talk about baseball losing fans for a few years now. You can’t argue that football has leap-frogged what used to be America’s Pastime and now MLB is pretending not to scramble to get their groove back. If these AMAZIN’ CGI videos created by Marc Rienzo and his team at Digital Domain Media Group...

Another Head Scratching Weekend for the Mets and Yankees

Another Head Scratching Weekend for the Mets and Yankees

Well, at least no one can call this a boring offseason in New York. The Mets came into the offseason in serious need of some power, most notably in the OF. They made a big splash by inking Granderson, but the thought all along was that they needed at least two big bats to become relevant again. As the free agent pool dwindled down as Spring Training...

What Round Will Tanaka be Drafted in Your Fantasy League?

What Round Will Tanaka be Drafted in Your Fantasy League?

If you live in the New York area, you’ve heard a million opinions on how good Masahiro Tanaka will be for the Yankees. As we mentioned in a previous article, Vegas set the over-under for Tanaka wins this year at 14.5. But with all the hype surrounding this guy, along with his gaudy numbers last year in Japan, the temptation for fantasy owners to use an...

MLB Over-Unders: What Does Vegas Think of Your Team?

MLB Over-Unders: What Does Vegas Think of Your Team?

Spring training is finally here. After one of the more exciting off seasons in recent memory, it’s time to look at Vegas’s scorecard for which teams improved the most. On Sunday, LVH Sportsbook posted their opening lines for win totals for each team. AL EAST Red Sox: 87.5 (97 wins last year) Rays: 87.5 (92 wins last year) Yankees: 85.5 (85 wins...

Who Will Be the Yankees SS in 2015?

Who Will Be the Yankees SS in 2015?

The Yankees spent the better part of 2 decades knowing who there closer was, a luxury that will come to an end this year. And next year, they’ll find themselves in the same predicament trying to find a shortstop to replace Derek Jeter. In pure baseball terms, replacing Mariano is more difficult, since the closer position is a revolving door for just about...

Phil Nevin Talks About Derek Jeter

Phil Nevin Talks About Derek Jeter

Phil Nevin joined the show Wednesday night and gave great insight into what Derek Jeter meant to the Yankees and to Major League Baseball. Nevin was selected 1st overall in 1992, five spots ahead of Derek Jeter. Having his name forever tied to being drafted ahead of one of the greatest shortstops of all-time has its downsides, but let’s not make him out to...

Tanaka Prop Bets

Tanaka Prop Bets

There’s nothing quite like the signing of an international superstar, and the Tanaka signing couldn’t have come at a better time for New York sports fans. We’ve all seen the Nintendo-like stats, and we’ve all read the scouting reports. But until we see him taking the mound in the Bronx, none of us knows how he’ll perform. So for...

Life’s Lessons Through AROD

Life’s Lessons Through AROD

I used to kick a ball, but then I got old and I had no league to play in anymore. I coached soccer for a while and then my work schedule trumped my free time. So watching sports became my only competitive outlet. I am faithful to the teams I follow…almost to a fault, as once I got kicked out of a Yankees playoff game for trying to catch a Bernie Williams...

Let’s All Be ‘Offended’ By The Cubs New Mascot

THAT BEAR ISN’T WEARING ANY PANTS! THAT BEAR ISN’T WEARING ANY PANTS! I’M SO OFFENDED, I JUST DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! You want to know what to do? First off, realize it’s a cartoon rendering of a bear. Second, grow up. We’re all adults here; start acting like one. Hi. For those that don’t know, that bear is actually the...

A-Rod has Played his Final Game in the Majors

A-Rod has Played his Final Game in the Majors

As I said when the story broke, the worst part of the Arod decision is that we’re stuck hearing about him for another year. He’s already filed lawsuits against Major League Baseball and the players union, and now we’ll be forced to hear the legal expertise of everyone with a microphone and a keyboard. But let’s be very clear, there are...

Most Compelling Sports Stories of 2013: Mariano Rivera

Most Compelling Sports Stories of 2013: Mariano Rivera

The following article was written by guest contributor Joe Pullia. Sometimes you don’t realize how lucky you are or how good you may have it, until you reflect back on it years later. For me, reality hit as soon as I received the phone call back in 1997, that I was hired to work for the New York Yankees in their Scoreboard and Broadcasting Department. I...

Most Compelling Sports Stories 2013: Robinson Cano

Most Compelling Sports Stories 2013: Robinson Cano

The following article was written by former Sirius XM producer DJ Zullo. It was thought to be a mere formality. Robinson was going to resign with the Yankees. He was going to retire a Yankee. He was going to attend numerous all-star games as a Yankee. Number 24 was going to rest in Monument Park with other legendary Yankees. Formality. Yes, we thought teams...

Most Compelling Sports Stories of 2013: The Boston Red Sox

Most Compelling Sports Stories of 2013: The Boston Red Sox

The following article is written by guest contributor Paul from Branford, CT. The story of the 2013 Boston Red Sox began and eventually became inextricably linked to the horrific events on Patriots Day in Boston during the Boston Marathon. In the moments that occurred subsequent to the terrorist attacks, the people of the city of Boston became united in both...

Who Will Sign Masahiro Tanaka?

Who Will Sign Masahiro Tanaka?

The news that Masahiro Tanaka will be posted by his Japanese team could not have come at a better time for New York sports fans. The Nets and Knicks are unwatchable, the Giants and Jets are playing for pride, and nobody cares about hockey. But in New York, baseball is relevant 12 months out of the year, and this bidding war is just what we needed. There are...

Nike knew Cano was signing with the Mariners before us all… Plus a few seconds of Alex Morgan

Nike knew Cano was signing with the Mariners before us all… Plus a few seconds of Alex Morgan

Anyone else find it more than a coincidence that Cano is taking BP in the rain, donned in blue and teal? Did Nike know something we didn’t? Also, anytime we can see Alex Morgan on national TV it’s a good thing. Also good to see what Justin Tuck looks like making a tackle. And thanks for the enthusiasm Urban. Suddenly I feel incomplete without my...
