Herb to the Pacers?

Knicks Rumors & News

According to The New York Daily News’ Frank Isola, Knicks assistant coach Herb Williams is a candidate to replace departed Pacers coach Rick Carlisle in Indiana. Herb posted a 16-27 record with the Knicks as interim coach following the firing of Lenny Wilkens in 2005.

Isola indicates that if Herb does leave, there is the possibility that Patrick Ewing could replace him on Isiah Thomas’s coaching staff.

Pettitte v. Dice-K On Friday

Yankees Rumors & News

Apparently last night’s drizzle was too intense to play ball in the Bronx.

Conveniently, the rainout affords the Yankees the opportunity to realign their rotation so that Andy Pettitte will now oppose Red Sox pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka Friday night at the Stadium.

Jeff Karstens had been scheduled to open the weekend series against the rival Sox, however Karstens could potentially now start on Saturday in the place of the shakey Kei Igawa. Chien-Ming Wang is set to go for the final game of the series on Sunday, while Phil Hughes will make his major league debut tonight as planned.

UPDATE: It will be Karstens on Saturday. Igawa is evidently wearing on Torre and the coaching staff.

Blueshirts’ Bubble Bursts

Rangers Rumors & News

Via The New York Post’s Larry Brooks:

The 5-2 defeat wasn’t inflicted by the Sabres so much as the Rangers inflicted it upon themselves. They were their own worst enemies.

Hardly under siege or relentless pressure, the Blueshirts nevertheless self-destructed. They took a string of senseless penalties – three offensive zone infractions within the opening 14:26; shorthanded for 8:09 of the first 24:19 while on the power play for only nine seconds – that took their toll. At the same time, their positional game deteriorated.

“In my mind, it comes down to not getting the puck in deep and not having the third man high [in the offensive zone],” said Sean Avery, who took two holding penalties and essentially was ineffective. “If you don’t do those two things, they’re just too talented, too fast and can score.”
