This Week on the Blog
Yankees: the Yanks only protected three of extra minor leaguers on Friday, so they could get exploited again in the rule 5 which is still a ways away. There've been some trade rumors around both Brett Gardner and Andrew Miller. Either should command a strong return, particularly Miller, and it cannot be like the crap we got in the Lowell, RJ or Sheff trades. They have to be good trades.
Giants: The Giants are off this week, although they've been off most weeks of the season. This week they have to hope they can get Prince and maybe one or two others for their stretch drive. Amazingly, they could still make the playoffs with a strong finish.
Knicks: Despite Coach Fisher's many ponderous moves, the Knicks are now on a winning streak. This is largely because either Melo or Porzingis has been super dominant over each of the last few games. Let's see if they can both get hot at the same time. In KP's case, 2 of his last three games have been sensational, and he still has to find consistency with his threes and his night to night. The Knicks have to figure out if that will be possible with Melo on the team. Whether it is or isn't it may be time to start marketing Melo at the deadline or prior to the draft.
Rangers: The Rangers are 15-3-2 and they still haven't played as well as they can. Nash may have broken out of his slump, that started during the second half of last season. It will be interesting to see if the Rangers market him. They're still not getting what they should from Kreider, Stepan and some of the others, but they are winning, and that will, hopefully, let them make the playoffs without having to play at playoff intensity for two months before the playoffs.
Over, let's hope the Knicks and Ranger keep rolling, and let's hope the Yanks have trade luck. The Giants don't play till one week from today, so let's hope they can avoid non-football injuries till then. Have a great week everyone!

Knicks: Zinger the Ringer Rises!
Giants: Hakeem Returns
Because the Giants didn't realize they wouldn't have Victor Cruz back at all till yesterday, which was after the trade deadline, they had to hit the NFL scrap heap, where they signed former Giant great Hakeem Nicks. I'm not kidding when I say he was great. He was, especially in 2010 and 2011, when he was dominant down the stretch and helped lead the Giants to their last SB victory. Then he hurt his knee and his thousand yard seasons were over. He left as a UFA after the `13 season, and that was big reason why the Giants chose Odell Beckham Jr. in round one of the `14 draft. It's a shame that Hakeem's prime was so brief, and that's he was still available in week 11, but, for awhile there, he was great.
