This Week on the Blog
Yanks: The dream is over, so I'd just as soon they keep losing late while improving their draft postion. Yes, I'd love to see Sanchez pass 20, but the other kids are just not getting enough chances to develop real traction, and more and more it doesn't seem like Girardi is the man for this transition. We'll see what happens there. Down on the farm, Instructs are starting and most of the top prospects will be playing down there, including, perhaps, Jame Kaprielian who has been throwing BP. So that would be great.
Giants: the Giants have to regroup after this disaster, and all three of Eli Apple, DRC and OBJ got dinged in this game, and Snacks was also in and out a bit. So, some physical healing will be required along with the mental healing and education that must take place before they face the Vikings. Btw, the Vikings always give the Giants, and specifically Eli, trouble. So McAdoo has his work cut out for him. This Dan Reeves playcalling is not gonna work.
The Rangers: The Blushirts will start their preseason against the Isles on Tuesday, and it will be our first chance to see Mika Z, Vesey, and Pavel Buchnevich (unless AV scratches him) with their Ranger teammates. Interestinglt, Jacob Trouba is demanding a trade and is the kind of guy the Rangers can use, but they may not have a match. I'm still surprised they haven't traded for a puck mover.
Knicks: the Knicks will start training camp this week, and with all the new parts, new coach Jeff Hornacek will have his work cut out for him. Still, given health, the parts shouldn't have much trouble meshing, since three of the presumptive starting 5 are already selfeless, and both Melo and Rose can be. It will also be a big camp for the young Euro's who will join Kristaps and perhaps give us a sense of the next core. We'll see. Should be fun.
So, at least we have the Knicks and Rangers back, if not winning streaks for the Giants and Yanks. I hope the rest of the week is better than today was for all of you.
