Do You Approve of Pettitte’s Return?

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Andy Pettitte‘s comeback will be the headline topic on tomorrow night’s radio program. I wrote yesterday that I am not optimistic that Pettitte will be able to provide the kind of performance that makes his presence worth the signing. This isn’t about money; it’s about the fact that he will create the kind of distraction [...]

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

I will be talking about the big Yankees acquisitions tonight at 8pm, but I would like to get the pulse of the fans. You know that I support Brian Cashman trading Jesus Montero and Hector Noesi for Michael Pineda and Jose Campos- do you? Tell us what you think and vote below

Vote Worst 1st Pitch: Wall, Bababooey, Chris Rock, Obama

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

On Friday, Washington Wizards guard John Wall threw out this embarrassing first pitch before the National took on the Orioles. It conjured up memories of a first pitch that I was in attendance for: Gary Dell’Abate aka Bababooey from the Howard Stern Show at a Mets game in 2009. I also remember comedian Chris Rock [...]

Which Mets Contract Buyout Was the Worst?

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011

via ESPN New York: The amount owed to Perez ranks near the top of the unofficial list of largest contracts eaten in organization history, with Castillo also high on the list. Perez is No. 1 in terms of outright money owed; however, Bobby Bonilla worked out a deal that eclipses $12 million. When the Mets [...]

Vote: Oliver Perez in Pinstripes?

Monday, March 21st, 2011

The Yankees are clearly looking for pitching depth. Yesterday, I was told of reports from Arizona the Yanks had two scouts to watch Dave Bush pitch. Today there are reports they are looking into Oliver Perez who was released by the Mets this morning. Despite the fact their system is loaded with young arms it [...]

Vote: Trading the Killer B’s

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Earlier today I reported about how the Yankees are trying to acquire Francisco Liriano without sacrificing Dellin Betances, Manuel Banuelos, or Andrew Brackman. If it came down to acquiring Francisco Liriano, would you be willing to include any of the B’s?Apparently, Brian Cashman would prefer not to. I wanted to take a tempeture of the [...]

Vote: Will Pettitte Pitch Again

Monday, February 7th, 2011

I think everyone would agree Andy Pettitte didn’t completely close the door on pitching again after this season. It made me think the rumblings we heard down in Tampa about a possible arm injury could be very valid. Why work out and then call it quits? I do remember MILB’s Jed Weisberger coming on the [...]

Monday, January 10th, 2011

The MLB Network recently named the “Top 75 catches in history.” Here is the entire list which  I found courtesy of Pale Hose 75 - Turner Ward (Pirates) goes through fence in deep right vs. Dodgers 74 - Toby Harrah robs the Jays with leap over the railing behind 3rd. 73 - Bo Jackson robs [...]

Brian Cashman Approval Rating

Monday, January 10th, 2011

I am a big supporter of the work that Brian Cashman has done as General Manager of the New York Yankees. Not many individuals could stare down the most powerful ownership group in sports, win that battle, and gain autonomy in the process. Since 2005, the Yankees have replenished their farm system, won a World [...]

Vote: Where Will Cliff Lee Wind Up?

Sunday, December 12th, 2010

I have been saying for a few days I think it’s Texas. NYBD contributor Joe Delgrippo reported from Orlando that Texas was the team he thought would come out on top. Many in the mainstream media believe the Yanks money will trump all. There were Twitter rumors yesterday that said Lee was going to sign [...]

MTV: Better Contract Howard Stern or Carl Crawford?

Friday, December 10th, 2010

While Jayson Werth, Carl Crawford, and Cliff Lee were negotiating muti million dollar deals this week, there was someone that leveraged their skills to an even bigger contract: Howard Stern. There were rumors last week that Stern was taking his radio show to the internet, and was close to signing a deal with Apple. It [...]

Poll: Why Won’t Carton Respond to NYBD?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Lets take a minute away from the Winter Meetings and follow up about our good friend Craig Carton of WFAN. Last week Carton mentioned me and NYBD on the air, which I responded to on the website. I sent this piece to both Carton and Al Dukes saying that I would clarify any misconception that [...]

Poll: Mex vs. Lo Duca: Who Will Get More Headlines?

Friday, October 1st, 2010

Now that Keith Hernandez is single the NY Post already has started following him on Page Six. Whether it was during his playing days, or in the booth, Mex has always been an intriguing character in the public eye. Can’t blame the tabloids, as Keith has dated such luminaries as musician Carly Simon. Of course, [...]
