The Rivalry: Yanks vs Red Sox

Babe Ruth at Fenway Back then, as the story goes, there was a get-together in the woods. A  Red Sox fan, a Cub fan and a Pirate fan were there. They all wondered when their team would make it to the World Series again and decided to call on God for

Noah Syndergaard Has His Detractors

In my world, I thought Noah Syndergaard was the Mets best pitcher last season. He’s already been named the opening day starter and he came into camp looking great. Oh, wait. He put on 17 pounds of muscle and now “panic city” is back. The worry is he looks too big,

Shame On Us For Enabling Domestic Violence

On the Sunday/Monday overnight radio show on WFAN, I was disgusted listening to callers tell WFAN’s Marc Malusis that they are not making a big deal about Jose Reyes’ domestic violence episode with his wife. The thought was Reyes served his time by being suspended for 51 games. Some even said
