As we all know by now Citi Field is a pitchers park.  It has a big outfield and 16 foot fences on the outfield walls.  The Wilpons decided when building a new ball park for the Mets to play in that they wanted a pitchers park for the Mets. I’m sure if you ask David […]

An article by posted on October 28, 2009 0 Comments

Throughout our history, we’ve had our fair share of great pitchers. The names Seaver, Gooden and Santana quickly come to mind. However, if there was one game that your life depended on, if you needed a big win, Jerry Koosman should be listed first. The best lefty in team history, Koosman was always capable of […]

To those of you who for some reason seem to think that hearing the Yankees fans chirp is more annoying than our division rival winning their 2nd World Series title in a row, I say to you the following:  I would root for Apollo Creed to not get up in Rocky IV after being physically […]

Including the playoffs, A.J. Burnett has had 17 opportunities to throw pie in the faces of happy Yankee players who have delivered “walk off” hits.  The last time was last Sunday at around 12:30 AM in game 2 of the ALCS, when he “pied” Jerry Hairston, who had singled and scored the winning run on […]

Sports Talk Radio – Time For A Nap

An article by posted on October 27, 2009 0 Comments

Sports talk radio has gotten so boring in New York, that I rarely listen anymore.  Five minutes of Mike Francesa is too much.  Believe it or not, I’d rather listen to Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. As history has recorded, July 1, 1987 marked the birth of WFAN and 24 hour sports talk radio.  At […]

October 27, 1986:  The Dream Has Come True

Two days ago, I wrote about the twenty-third anniversary of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series.  Miraculous as that game was, all it did was force a seventh and deciding game.  Do you remember seeing the replay of Red Sox catcher Carlton Fisk waving for the ball to stay fair in the 1975 World […]

His column takes a surprising twist when he suggests that Carlos Beltran would be a […]
