This was an insteresting week, as the Yanks overperformed ahead of the non-waiver deadline, the Rangers made nice moves, the Knicks rested on their recent laurels, and the Giants continued to ignore the OL, which other teams will not. This week, all four teams will be in action.
Giants: Later this week, the Giants will open their first Training Camp of the McAdo Era. The reports will probably pick out the differences right away, but it will take well into the pre-season games for us to see if the coaching has been upgraded at all. In a very encouraging bit of news, Victor Cruz has been posting workout tapes and he looks like Victor Cruz. And they still haven't addressed the OL.
Yanks: The Yanks need to sell. They don't need to play every game like it's the last game of the world series and create unsustainable expectations. So, hopefully, intelligence will prevail, though it doesn't always over there.
Rangers: The Rangers made a big trade that allowed them to get younger and pick up a future 2, and the extended Kreider for four more years, as well as giving Hayes a two year bridge deal. They're now pretty well positioned for another smart trade or two, if they want more changes.
Knicks: the Knicks were reported to be interested in Tobias Harris as well as Chasson Randle this past week. They don't really have the ready assets or room to get Harris without a third team, and minutes for him would be a challenge. Randle shined with their summer league team and they maybe should have tried to sign him then, than compete with two other teams now.
It'll be great to have all four teams going again. And I hope it's a great week all around for all of you.
