Been wanting Barrett gone as he’s just never been that good. Quickley however, was a consistent effort guy and a huge scorer who will be missed by most Knick fans, including myself. Either way, something had to change with a team that’s 17-14 so far, sitting in 7th place for a postseason spot with zero chance of winning an NBA championship.
Hey, Jets owner Woody Johnson has already said that Saleh is returning next year, so why would he be angry or upset about anything at this point?
The people online blaming Steve Cohen for not getting Yamamoto are clowns when you consider that the Mets offered him the same amount of $$$ that the Dodgers did.
I’m not excited.
I’m guessing that Whitlock is running out of ideas when it comes to hating on Deion Sanders every day what with this ludicrous take that’s going viral. After all, the assertion that women should be denied the right to vote is an asinine stance, especially under the guise of the ‘Christian values’ Whitlock claims to have. Regardless of one’s perspective on traditional family structures, the notion that an individual’s gender should determine their eligibility to participate in shaping laws and representing the public is not only straight-up sexist, but it disregards the sacrifices made for universal suffrage by both men and women. Talk about sheer, utter buffoonery. But then What else should one expect from a fat, no-good bastard?
At this point Saleh (16-31 now in 3 seasons) and the entire offensive coaching staff should be fired upon season’s end. Hackett should be banned from the NFL. Rodgers needs to focus on just quarterbacking. So at the end of the day we need a new offensive line, a new OC and a new coach…Bill Cowher anyone?
I watch enough of ESPN’s “First Take” with Stephen A. Smith and co. and tell you that Kimberly Martin clearly doesn’t belong on TV. She clearly does little to no homework on topics, totally wings it through segments and is only there to provide eye candy. But dare to criticize her and you’ll be called ‘sexist’ or ‘racist’ (or both) by the usual politically-correct, name-calling heads who don’t offer much of anything else (but nonetheless get paid handsomely for it). Either way, good job by Ryan Clark here defending Cam Newton (a former NFL MVP) as way more than just a guy who wears funny hats on his podcast.
Unless its about the money, Yamamoto should want to be a Met. Kodai Senga is already here, had a great rookie season and loves NY. He’d immediately become the ace of the pitching staff and the Asian fanbase in NY would gravitate towards him just like Jeremy Lin when he was a Knick. In other words, as long as he stayed healthy and did well, his star would rise even more.
No score going into the 2nd half and I figured the Texans would eventually get a couple of field goals or something to win the game. That’s how inept the Jets offense has been all season, after all no one expects them to score…not through their offense anyway. But damn if somebody didn’t spike all their drinks during halftime. I mean, 30 points!?! Against a good team!?! By an offense run by Zak Wilson and Nathaniel Hackett!?! Call me shocked to say the least.
Right-hander Jorge Lopez and the New York Mets agreed on a one-year, $2 million contract Thursday, sources told ESPN, adding another reliever to a team that has spent the past week bolstering its organization depth.
Lopez, 30, struggled with three teams this year after a career-best 2022 in which he looked the part of a front-line reliever. With a velocity bump from his move from the rotation to the bullpen, Lopez rode a 98 mph fastball and heavy curveball to a 2.54 ERA. The regression he showed after his midseason trade from Baltimore to Minnesota continued into 2023, when the Twins traded him to Miami and he later went back to the Orioles without similar success.
Slowly we’re heading back to the days of the totally inept Wilpon’s. Pete Alonso still hasn’t gotten a new contract. Yoshinobu Yamamoto is still out there. No news on possibly bringing David Robertson back or even free agent. Seth Lugo (as a starter). But yeah, we got some subpar reliever named Jorge Lopez…how exciting.
Say what you want about the Yankees organization, one thing sure: they’re always willing to spend money to help their team win.
The Atlanta Braves acquired outfielder Jarred Kelenic, pitcher Marco Gonzales and infielder Evan White from the Seattle Mariners on Sunday night for right-handed pitchers Cole Phillips and Jackson Kowar.
The move added a veteran lefty to the Braves pitching staff, along with Kelenic, who at one time was one of baseball’s top young prospect.
In the process, Seattle cleared a chunk of salary off its payroll, giving up on Kelenic in order for the Braves to take the contracts of Gonzales and White.
Seattle is sending Atlanta cash as part of the trade.
Kelenic actually had his first decent year in the majors last season. And of course, now that he’s a Brave, he’ll probably win the MYP in 2024 because yunno, we’re jinxed like that.
