Yankees Rumors & News

I figured I was done writing about Carl Pavano and the New York Yankees. Then, courtesy of Peter Abraham’s outstanding LoHud Yankees Blog, comes the news that The Rajah of Rehab will be entitled to a full players share of whatever money the Yankees earn throughout the postseason.

Last year, according to Abraham, St. Louis Cardinals players collected $362,173 each for winning the World Series. Yikes!! As if Pavano hasn’t stolen enough of George Steinbrenner’s cash already.

With that in mind, I have some suggestions for Pavano on how he can use whatever his share of the cash turns out to be.

• Split it between Chase Wright, Matt DeSalvo, Tyler Clippard, Jeff Karstens, Darrell Rasner, Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy. Those guys at least tried to pitch, and they can use the money. Forget Kei Igawa, though. He stole a bunch of King George’s cash this season, too.

• Go to Oz, visit the great and powerful Wizard, and buy a heart. It’s the only way he’s …

Mets Rumors & News

I can honestly say the 2007 NY Mets are done. Thier slogan coming into this season: “Your Season has Come.” I think that seems more apporiate for the Phillies. The slogan for the final weekend of the regular season at Shea might as well be “Your Season has Come and Gone.” I might be stepping on some toes when bashing the Mets but isn’t that what makes the Yankees-Mets fan rivalry so great?

I honestly thought that last night the Mets would turn it around, but quickly it turned ugly. 2-0 in the 1st inning and the rest is history. As a die-hard Yankee fan, I am loving every minute of the Mets fan’s misery. I mean come on, why not? All year long all I heard was “ least we’re in first place” and now finally, when it’s really matters..on the brink of the postseason, the Mets are pretty much sleeping in the death beds they made for themselves. I am loving this stretch run that has now seen the …

Giants Rumors & News

Sunday’s meeting between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles is a matchup of teams that, for all intents and purposes, saved their seasons with victories last week.

Both NFC East rivals are 1-2, and when they meet Sunday night in the Meadowlands they will be trying to sort out which of them has a chance to be a contender, and which is likely to spend the season as a pretender.

Let’s break the game down.

When the Eagles have the ball

Which Eagles offense will show up? Will it be the one that dropped 56 points on Detroit last week? Or the one that scored 25 points and looked awful in two season-opening losses?

Of course, you have to ask the same question about the Giants defense. Will we see the unit that gave up 80 points in two season-opening losses, or the team that shut down Washington in a second-half comeback last week?

My guess? Both sides will meet somewhere in the middle.

For the Eagles, running back Brian Westbrook has been bothered by an …
