deGrom’s health could be Mets problem all season

Jacob deGrom will pitch Game 2 of the Mets doubleheader against the Atlanta Braves on Monday night at Citi Field. This comes after he left the game against the Chicago Cubs last week with right shoulder soreness. It was the second straight start he was pulled against the San Diego Padres with flexor tendinitis in his right arm.

Jeff Ulbrich: Experience & Passion are the Keys

During the 2020 season, the New York Jets not only imploded on the field but off the field as well and in the coaching offices. Then-head coach Adam Gase was essentially married to defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and their relationship turned sour by mid-season. In reality, Gase removed himself from defensive decision making and Williams put forth his vision for the defense in contradiction to Gase’s often-chaotic Sunday game plans, as seen in the now-infamous “Cover Zero” call against the Las Vegas Raiders which cost them the game.

What Are the Mets Looking to Add as Trade Deadline Approaches?

The New York Mets had a tough weekend in Washington. The offense, which had been a strength for the team for the better part of a month, has struggled recently. There is nothing to panic about. It’s not uncommon for teams to have ups and downs throughout the season. The Mets have a crucial stretch of games coming up. Also crucial is that in about 40 days the Major League Baseball trade deadline is approaching. There are a few spots that the Mets need to improve on before July 31 and unlike previous seasons, there are no waiver trades that can take place in August. July 31 is the hard deadline for any trades. That means the bulk of the work, as far as the trade deadline is concerned, will take place from now until then.

Things look like they’re finally coming together

I detailed a few weeks ago that the Yankees inconsistency needed to be turned around if they wanted a real chance at winning a world championship in 2021. One of the few things they did consistently other than run the bases very poorly was have no fight when behind. That changed this week in Buffalo as all three Yankee wins were all in comeback fashion as the Bombers swept the Blue Jays in what seemed like three home games when you listened to the roar of the crowd.

Gerard Gallant is the new coach

The New York Rangers have gone through a ton of changes within the past few years. This past season, the organization did a complete cleaning of the front office and has been looking to hire. A main concern for fans was a new head coach. David Quinn did not live...

Was this season a failure?

It’s been two weeks since the New York Knicks were eliminated by the Atlanta Hawks in a disappointing five games. Still an open wound, it’s time to talk about the season. Surely, if in November, you approached a fan of the Knickerbockers and told him or her “the Knicks will finish fourth in the NBA’s Eastern Conference,” he or she would’ve surely either laughed at you or looked at you as if you had two heads.

Will the Yankees be Buyers or Sellers?

The Yankees currently sit at 34-32 after an up and down start to the season. If New York was not currently in the American League East, the best division in baseball, there would be less concern about whether or not they would make the playoffs. But with the Rays and Red Sox looking like very good teams and the Blue Jays having a similar record, there are very legitimate concerns about it.

Tevin Coleman: Depth & Experience in the Backfield

With OTA’s and minicamps starting to wind down around the NFL in anticipation of training camp next month, the Jets have amassed a strong running back corps that should help erase the anemic offensive performance from the 2020 season. New head coach Robert Saleh, while being most noted as a top-notch defensive playcaller, has brought in Mike LaFleur as his offensive coordinator. LaFleur, the younger brother of Packers head coach Matt LaFleur, is no stranger to Robert Saleh as they both worked together in San Francisco under Kyle Shanahan. Both San Francisco alumni bring NFC Championship rings with them to the Jets and their arrival should signal massive changes in both the offensive and defensive schemes for the Jets 2021 season.

Sunday’s Blunders Make You Wonder About Rojas

The New York Mets are in first place in the National League East with a record of 32-25. They lead the division by three games over the Philadelphia Phillies. They have done it with a rash of injuries and at one time they had 17 players in the Injured List (IL). Manager Luis Rojas has done a very good job this year. All of that is fact.

Yes, we should be very worried about the Yankees

The Yankees are 33-30. It’s June 11. Most of the team is still healthy. It should not matter what pitchers are using on the baseballs or what MLB may have done to them, the Yankees are a much better team on paper than three games over .500. As Yankee fans, we need to be very concerned that this team may not make the playoffs in 2021.

Adam Fox is a Norris Trophy finalist

Throughout this past season for the New York Rangers, if there was one thing all fans could collectively agree on it was the fact that Adam Fox deserved to be nominated for the Norris Trophy. The Rangers acquired Adam Fox from the Carolina Hurricanes for a second-round pick in the...

Gary Sánchez Should Catch Gerrit Cole

It has been another rough week for the Yankees as the same problems persisted in a 2-5 homestand against the Rays and Red Sox. The biggest problem has been the lack of offense. Because of this I am going to address something that has bothered me about this team for a while but I have not voiced it.

Jets Sign draft pick Michael Carter to 4 Year Deal

Despite what the calendar says, the 2021 NFL season is in full swing with the New York Jets signing another draft pick to their roster. Last week, the Jets were able to sign RB Michael Carter to a four year, $4.29 million dollar deal that pays out a $807,000 signing bonus. This draft signing signals more offensive firepower for the Jets after coming off an anemic 2020 season with little or no offensive-period.

Billy McKinney Deserves Roster Spot Even When Regulars Come Back

Never judge a book by its cover. That’s an old saying but one that has some relevance for the 2021 New York Mets. It has been no secret that this season has been one that has been filled with injuries for the team. That has led the organization to make some interesting and unusual personnel decisions and has led to some unusual names on the current 26-man roster. Yet, the team continues to play well and stay in first place in the National League East. After Sunday’s 6-2 victory over the San Diego Padres the New York Mets have a record of 29-23 and currently hold a 3.5 game lead over the Atlanta Braves.

Nets Bucks Preview: A Big Versus Small Market Battle for the Ages

Oh boy, it is finally here. The Brooklyn Nets versus the Milwaukee Bucks, and this is going to be a series. With the Lakers eliminated by the Suns, the Clippers on the brink of another collapse, this series might be the biggest heavy-weight battle of these playoffs. This series is filled with All-Star talent, and with both teams having two of the best big three in the league, this could end up as an instant classic.
