The Collapse Is Now Complete

For some reason I thought there was a chance that Glavine might not pitch well, but not like this. 2007 will now go down as one of the saddest chapters in New York Mets history.

Pedro, Your Mates Need You Tonight

Tonight is why the Mets signed Pedro Martinez. I don't care how long he's been on the disabled list or that he's not the Pedro of '99. Tonight Pedro Martinez needs to come up with a big game for his ballclub.

Rex Grossman Out As Starting QB?

All I can is that if the rumors are true, it's about freaking time. Now maybe the Bears can concentrate on saving their season.

Jets: W-1, L-2

Had a good feeling Chad would come through and we'd get our first win today, but of course, we wouldn't be the Jets if we made it easy on ourselves. In other words against a pathetic Dolphins team the game shouldn't have been as close as it was.

Bonds and Giants Together No More

Well, it's official. Barry Bonds won't be finishing his career in a Giants uniform. I know that he still wants to get to 3,000 hits and play with the chance for that ever elusive championship ring, so if Moises Alou retires at the end of this year, the Mets should certainly take a look. But in all likelihood he'll end up playing DH in the American League, so wouldn't it be cool too see Bonds play a season in Fenway what with that wall?

Floyd Landis Loses Tour de France Title

Barry Bonds has served as the face of steroids in sports mostly because he was chasing Henry Aaron's all-time HR record (or so the media has claimed), not because of his race or his relationship with scribes over the years. Well now that Bonds has broken the record and there's no concrete evidence that Bonds ever willingly used steroids, will Floyd Landis, who has shamed his sport beyond belief, get half the attention for using steroids as Bonds has gotten?
I highly doubt it.

O.J. Posts $125,000 Bail

The judge set O.J. Simpson's bail at $125,000, which he paid. There was no legal battle, the defense and D.A. agreed on the amount.

O.J. can return to Florida, but he must surrender his passport and he can't have any contact with witnesses.

Be interested in seeing O.J. wiggle his way out of this one.

Jets: W-0, L-2

First of all, we never play well against the Ravens--their defense is just too good. Secondly, while the comeback was gritty, there's no such thing as morale points in the NFL. Third, Kellen Clemens very decent performance should shut Jets fans up for awhile. Lastly, Thomas Jones has so far been a major bust.

Phillies 3, Mets 2

This game had the recipe for a Mets loss:

1) 44yo Jamie Moyer (sporting like a 8+ ERA in his last 5 starts) holds the Mets to two runs in seven innings.

2) A horrible umpire behind home plate

3) Predictably Willie decides not to squeeze with 1 out and Gomez on 3rd with reyes on 1st in the 8th; Castillo then strikes out (which he almost never does) and eventually Beltran strikes out with the bases loaded.

4) Aaron Heilman pitching in a tight game

Just a bad loss, now we have to take the next two to not only get revenge on the Phils, but to help us wrap up the N.L. East before this thing starts to get a 'lil dangerous.

Stephon Marbury Is A Jerk

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Stephon Marbury is not a winner, but a selfish malcontent. Any team that puts Marbury on their roster deserves the consequences, which in every case is losing. Now Isiah Thomas' stupid loyalty to Marbury could come back to haunt not just his professional life, but his personal one as Marbury testified today about how much of a jerk he is at Thomas' sexual harassment trial.

Prayers For Kevin Everett

Seriously, this is just tragic . . . on a play Kevin Everett's probably made a thousand times before. You just hope that someday he'll be able to walk again.

Jets: W-0, L-1

Bad, just bad. Tom Brady had all day to throw. Thomas Jones did nothing. And stupid Jets fans cheered when Chad got hurt in the third quarter. Basically, we got mauled by a team that's been dominating us for far too long now. Eric Mangini should still be screaming right now, but we still gotta' put this one behind us quick.

Rick Ankiel Feelgood Story Could Be A Bust

If this news turns out to be true, than I'd love to see the media (esp. after they played up the "Roy Hobbs" angle so much) go after Ankiel the way they have Barry Bonds. However, I doubt that'll happen.

Serena Pisses Off The Media

Serena has always had a bit of an attitude so no surprise there, but this time she comes off as nothing but a sore loser.

Shaq To Wife: I Want A Divorce!

Kind of surprised by this news, still remember seeing them together with their kids on that hour-long episode of MTV's "Cribs" not too long ago and they seemed like they really belonged together. Shaunie gave Shaq four kids too so you know she's gonna' get paid like crazy. Something tells me that there's much more to this story.

If Yankees Get Wildcard, Please Let Them Play Angels

Over here in NYC we have a media that acts like it's a God-given right for the Yankees to make the playoffs every year. Well, too bad if they don't (and yeah Joe Torre and Brian Cashman definitely need to go if that happens). But if the Yankees somehow do win the wildcard this year, wouldn't it be great for us Yankee-haters if had to face the Angels, whom they never, ever beat in the playoffs, much less the regular season? Yeah, that'd be kinda nice.
