The Good, The Bad and The Ugly: Giants vs. Bengals

Giants Rumors & News

Coming in at 0-2, the Bengals weren’t the patsies that the Rams and Redskins were. The Giants had their hands full in this game, as Cincinnati came out determined and driven. It was a roller coster ride, with the teams trading scores all day, but the Jints finally prevailed in overtime by a score of 26-23. Their 3-0 record is the best start they’ve had since 2000.

The Good

Oldster John Carney booted four field goals, including the game winner, and is nine for nine for the season. He kicked 46, 26, 24 and 22 yarders. Not bad for someone picked up off the scrapheap. He’s the Giants’ version of Fernando Tatis (without the season-ending injury).

Kevin Boss not only made his first catch of the season, but snagged a touchdown pass as well. He had three receptions for 51 yards. At least we don’t have to hear about a tight end not having any catches for the season anymore. Eli Manning spread the ball around to eight different receivers. Plaxico Burress only had three catches (45 yards), but …

Mets Falter in Atlanta: Series Recap

Mets Rumors & News

The Mets headed into the home stretch of the season a half game behind Philly and one-and-a-half games ahead of the Brewers. After losing two out of three to the Braves, their wild card lead stays the same but they lost a game in the standings to the Phillies. Here’s what happened down at Turner Field over the weekend.

Friday, Mets 9-5: Back in First

With the game tied at five in the eighth inning, Daniel Murphy was sent up to pinch hit with runners on first and second and one out. Was there any doubt he would come through? He lofted a long shot to left-center for a double, driving in both runners. He’s patient. He’s clutch. He’s a student of hitting. Let’s just hope he’s not another Gregg Jefferies or Mike Vail. Jose Reyes led off the game with a home run (again), and racked up three hits, two RBIs, a stolen base and scored three runs. Nick Evans smashed a looong homer to center field. …

NL Dogfight: September 21st

Mets Rumors & News

With eight days left in baseball’s regular season, the playoff races have yet to be settled. While the Cubs have wrapped the National League Central, and the Dodgers are on the verge of taking home the National League West, the National League East and the Wild Card remain up for grabs. With only two spots available, three teams have their sites set on October baseball. The Milwaukee Brewers, the New York Mets, and Philadelphia Phillies all find themselves within three games of each other with just over a week of baseball left to play.

Recap of Saturday’s Action:
Both the Mets and Phillies got a boost on Saturday. The Cincinnati Reds scored 3 runs in the sixth inning off CC Sabathia (pitching on three days rest), as they beat the Brewers for a second consecutive day 4-3. Rickie Weeks went 3 for 3 with a home run, triple, and two RBI’s in the Brewers loss.

The Mets also lost last night against a Braves …

Yankees Rumors & News

The day is finally here, September 21st, 2008. To most people, it’s just another day but to Yankee fans,players, coaches and anyone ever associated with baseball, it’s the end of an era. An era that can not possibly be replicated. There’s no way to replace the memories and moments that this Yankee Stadium gave everyone since being opened in 1923. Now, tonight will be the last game ever played at Yankee Stadium. I can’t believe it.

I, for now am against the idea of the new Yankee Stadium because one of the reasons why I love the Yankees is for the tradition that comes along with the franchise. That includes Yankee Stadium, the greatest place in the world. If you ever been to a Yankee game in October or been around the Stadium in the postseason you know how it is, nothing tops that feeling. Now, with the disappointing season the Yankees will not be going to the playoffs this year and there will be nothing to cheer …

Jeter Will Play In Stadium Finale

Yankees Rumors & News

When Brett Gardner plated the winning run in today’s game Yankee fans rejoiced because they are getting a last chance to cheer for their team in their stadium’s final week.
It could have been an entirely different tone today if the guy Gardner replaced hadn’t been able to go tomorrow. See Gardner pinch ran for Derek Jeter in the bottom of the ninth after he was hit on the left hand. The same hand he took a hit on back in May right before he went into a terrible slump.
Jeter was sent to the hospital after the game, but fortunately for the Yankees and their final day they came back negative and the captain should be good enough to play tomorrow.
When I say he should be good enough to play I mean there are no broken bones so he will play. It takes a lot to get Jeter out of a game. Back in May when he did take the …
