Mets & Yanks Season Preview on 1240 AM WGBB @ 10 pm

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

I am joined by Kevin Kernan of the New York Post tonight to preview the 2012 Mets and Yankees. We will talk about Michael Pineda, keys to a successful Yankees campaign, and Kevin’s outlook on the Bombers. Also hear me get Kevin’s thoughts on 3 things that will, win or lose, make the Mets season […]

Is Nimmo the Next Bryce Harper?

Sunday, June 26th, 2011

Kevin Kernan went out to Wyoming to catch up with Mets first round pick Brandon Nimmo. A great piece that you should read in full, but this quote from his American Legion coach, Tagg Lain, stands out: “I’ve coached Bryce Harper in the Tournament of Stars. “That’s when I told [tournament officials] that I’ve got […]

Did Jerry Manuel Ruin David Wright’s Swing?

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

Last night, Kevin Kernan of the NY Post talked baseball with me on my radio show. He’s been spending the last couple of days in Port St. Lucie, and had a chance to catch up with David Wright. As discussed earlier in the week, Wright gave the team a “put up or shut up” missive […]

Did the Giants Debunk Moneyball?

Monday, November 1st, 2010

Bad night for Moneyballers, as Tony Siegle, senior advisor of Giants told me, “We’ve shown Moneyball is a bunch of garbage” #MLBless than a minute ago via TweetDeckKevin KernanNYPost_Kernan I am not sure that is completely an accurate statement, but what the Giants did prove is that good pitching and a hot closer will certainly […]

Yankee Stadium Worst Postseason Crowd?

Saturday, October 23rd, 2010

Crowd is really loud tonight here at the Bank Every postseason crowd has been better than #Yankees crowd, except maybe Atlanta Chop-ers #MLBless than a minute ago via TweetDeckKevin KernanNYPost_Kernan Great point by Kevin Kernan, as he tweets from Citizens Bank Park. I haven’t been live to any stadium this postseason, but I found the […]

Oswalt Would be a Risky Move For Mets

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

Kevin Kernan of the NY Post suggested today that Roy Oswalt could be the missing piece that would turn around the Mets season. I agree with Kevin that Oswalt could change the dynamic of the Mets rotation and make them legitimate Wild Card contenders, but only with a caveat: Carlos Beltran. It’s painfully obvious the […]

NY Baseball Fans Headed to Early Burnout

Friday, April 9th, 2010

To say the mainstream media is overanalyzing the start of the baseball season is this site acting as “the pot calling the kettle black.” We, after all, try to delve into the details from the Independent League to the majors. Regardless, the amount of over analysis of the Mets and Yankees just 3 games in […]

Joba: All Star in Talk But Replacement Level in Action

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Kudos to Kevin Kernan of the NY Post for calling out “Nook Laloosh” Chamberlain for his usual clichéd analysis of his pitching. Part of me feels bad for Chamberlain. Yes, I think he still should lose some more weight and doesn’t repeat his mechanics, but the Yankees have created an environment of excuses for the […]

Time For Fans to Manage Expectations with Joba

Saturday, March 6th, 2010

Yankees fans have never had to deal with much disappointment. What was the last “can’t miss” prospect that didn’t make an impact in pinstripes? In 2008 they were fed their first dose of reality as Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain and Ian Kennedy didn’t live up to expectations as the next great trio of Yankees pitchers. […]

More Mejia, Bullpen, and Ty Wigginton

Saturday, February 27th, 2010

Some random Mets thoughts: - I wrote earlier in the week the temptation to use Jenrry Mejia might be too much for Jerry Manuel. I compared Mejia to another local prospect, Joba Chamberlain, who was brought in to save the Yankees bullpen in 2007. Yesterday, Jerry Manuel was talking about Mejia’s cutter being the key […]
