This past week sucked for us. The Yanks let us down catastrophically, and there was really no good news for any of our teams -- though the Rangers did keep winning, thank goodness.
Whether we like it or not, this week will be more eventful, starting with the Giants.
Giants: On Monday, the Giants have to either sign JPP, franchise him, or get ready to lose him in free agency. That's the deadline for tagging players. What's more they still have to find more cap room, and could start looking at cut players from around the league like Anthony Fasano, Barry Cofield and Reggie Bush to start addressing their plethora of needs before the regular free agency period starts.
Rangers: The NHL trade deadline passes at 5PM on Monday. Since the Rangers ALWAYS make trades, my hope is simply that they are a better team Monday night than they are right now. I'm handing it over to the hockey gods for there with one proviso: if MZA is traded it has to be for or part of a BIG IMPROVEMENT.
Knicks: The Knicks and all of us will continue to mourn Anthony Mason -- the last Knick who wasn't on some level -- a pussy. Phil Jackson either will or won't continue his scouting trip with an eye on getting more picks (which a genius should be able to do).
Yanks: The Yankees, such as they are, will continue working against their own best long term baseball needs and putting brand first. Also, they will start playing preseason games, so it's a good time to see th kids before they get sent down -- if you can even stomach watching the Yanks for awhile.
So it will be an eventful week, whether or not those events will please us is anyone's guess. I hope it's a great one for each of you.
