  1. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Willie also made some comments about perhaps some criticism of his managing being racially motivated. Don't remember the exact words but I bet that scared a lot of people off. Boston can be a scary baseball town in terms of the microscope so I don't know if that's a super coveted spot, but it is up there and above us. Philly you have time and you have zero pressure...not a bad gig. Still I don't think they'll be ready to contend for .500 until after next year. They've been pretty awful. And the Duaner Sanchez thing still irritates me. Why the hell was he in a taxi going anywhere that late? You want food? You can get most anything delivered to your damn hotel room which is where you should be at that hour.
  2. GDT: Lightning @ Devils, 7:30 PM

    That's worth a healthy scratch right there.
  3. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Cora is the coveted guy here but I'm always wary of that. Willie was the "he's going to be a great manager one day" bench coach until we found the hard way why he never got a job before us or since. I want someone that's managed before and gone through some turmoil and learned from him mistakes.
  4. Best and worst moments in the first decade at the Rock

    That comeback win over Toronto when we just got Kovalchuk was fun. Things were really looking up. And it foreshadowed Toronto's collapse to Boston in the playoffs. Both were 4-1 late 3rd gag jobs.
  5. Best and worst moments in the first decade at the Rock

    Year 1 was rough at the Pru Center. Rangers won Game 5 here to eliminate us with a ton of fans in the building. Way more than usual. I think I recall Lundqvist doing that dopey stick salute that they do as well on our ice (but I don't recall if any other Rangers did it) Game 1 here vs. Ottawa was weird. Chris Neil scored the first official goal. Gionta scored on a weird centering pass that deflected off a defenseman and in.
  6. Emrick Still Tops

    Rangers fans were very very salty Doc was even allowed to call that series and were complaining that one of his Devils Cup rings was visible on TV. I remember a lot of teary eyed rage after we won. How they could tell Doc was enjoying it and gave the Devils goal/great save calls a bit more enthusiasm than the Rangers goal/great save calls.
  7. Only 6 years between posts lol

    Whatever happened to GetReal. Didn't he start using a different name? I don't recall him being banned under the old one. But he was an nj.com/network54 holdover There was also pepperkorn who was just pretty much an a$$hole and I don't think even really watched hockey
  8. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Kevin Long interviewed for the job on Friday. Kind of indifferent to him. Bob Geren also in the mix As is Chip Hale. Never understood what was so special about Chip Hale in any capacity. He kind of looks like Art Howe
  9. 2017 Miami Dolphins thread

    The Dolphins don't suck. They actually have quality talent everywhere on the roster. The loss to us could be an anomaly. But sometimes average to good teams just flat out don't match up well with certain bad teams. It's like Devils/Islanders back when the Devs were becoming disciplined defensive monsters and they were a joke. Yet every game with them seemed to be a pain in the butt. The less the players tweet the better. It's just one idiotic faux-pas after another. Maybe some players have this...but how about the league offers up some tweet screeners (college grads, marketing/advertising/comm majors) because really these players do have handlers...they're the agents. Where the hell are the agents in all this? This is going to hurt them in the future regarding contracts and they have a vested interest. If you're a fringe guy and it's down to you and some other fringe guy, and one guy is quiet as a church mouse and you have a list of idiotic comments on twitter, you're not getting that contract offer.
  10. 2017 JETS

    Goodell right now is a hot mess with all the other things going on and now this is dumped in his lap. Of course he'll bungle it too. The NHL was just as foolishly stubborn with the crease rule (drove me nuts in 1997 with the Rags. What was that 4 disallowed goals?) this was a league that had a magic touch at one point...doesn't seem that way anymore. I get the idea that with this, the protests, the boycotts on both sides, the Rams/Chargers attendance disasters...things may be pretty tense among the 32 owners in their ivory towers. Plus the ongoing CTE black cloud.
  11. NFL Week 6

    With the broken collarbone I can pretty much guarantee the NFL will now (or by next year) heavily enforce the "do not land with the full force of your body on the QB" rule which they have gotten away from a bit. Rodgers being out is a big blow to the league.
  12. 2017 JETS

    It was a bad call. It was far from the worst call in NFL history. Jets fans (me included) are very woe is me. It bothers me but you can't put this in the same category as Rob Lytle or Sugar Bear Hamilton or Mike Renfro or the Music City Miracle. I'm happy with the way they played. They're not a good team but are really getting the most they can out of what they have. A call like that you just have no control over. The Jets can't get down or lose focus, just keep going out there and play hard and stop saying the NFL owes us anything The explanation was a huge reach. There really is no possible way to defend this. If the league is smart they'll just fess up and admit they made a mistake which I hope they do. Don't dig the hole deeper by trying to explain and explain.
  13. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    I don't think Girardi goes anywhere. Even if they did lose the series to the Indians I think he comes back to the Yankees but on a very short leash. Similar to Torre in 2006 I think the Yankees brass would've cooled down and given him another year. I would pull the plug on Baker though. He's 68, it's never going to happen for him. He's never getting them over the hump
  14. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    Well there is a school of thought where a struggling/flustered pitcher will aim a get me over BP fastball to try and get ahead and reestablish some sort of command. Just trying to sneak one by. Some hitters just go up there and guess that's what's coming. If they guess right it can go 450 feet. If they don't the gamble will kill the inning. Reyes does this all the time. Seems to work twice a year
  15. New York Mets 2017 Season Thread

    I really think 1994 would've been their year. At the very least I hope baseball retroactively officially awards the 94 Expos the Division. 2012 was ugly. Blow a deciding game 6-0 lead to the Cards. Carried a 7-5 lead at home into the 9th and blew it.
