Mets a Mess Off the Field

Earlier today, Jay Horowitz sent out a letter to Mets fans, telling them the team will do all the right things on the field.

The problem? Well, besides calling our catcher "Jose Thole" (WTF?), the letter was "signed" by Terry Collins. The truth is: it came from Horowitz, Collins had nothing to do with it.

On the fan today, Mike Francesa interviewed Collins and asked him: "we know now that you didn't send the letter, but do you agree with its contents?" (Francesa's podcast is available for free through iTunes)

Terry's response: "I have to be honest, I haven't read the letter yet."

How the hell did they sign his name to it without even running it by them? Embarrassing.

I'm not by any means giving up on Alderson for one relatively insignificant snafu, but as a Mets fan, I'm snake-bitten. For now, the new regime looks a lot like the old one: one hand doesn't know what the other hand is doing.

The Mets dropped their road opener to Florida on Friday, 6-2.

The Yankees defeated the Tigers in their home opener on Thursday by a score of 6 to 3.

Rautins: Fields can't drive

A little clip from our two favorite New York Knicks rookies.

While we're at it, this is even better. Do you remember "I'm Coming Home", that cheesy hyper-dramatic video that MSG made for Melo's debut? Now that Jared Jefferies is back in a blue uniform, someone thought he deserved his own video. The results are hilarious. Check it out:

Knicks put out the Heat

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Days off a defeat at the hands of one of the league's worst, the New York Knicks defeated one of the league's best. It was a showcase of stars as NY's big three faced off with Miami's big three.

In the end, however, it came down to one star on each side: Stat vs. James. Down by 1 with seconds left, James drove the lane and was rejected by Amar'e. Seconds later, James again missed: this time from three point range.

For a game between two basketball teams loaded with offensive firepower, the affair was surprisingly low scoring. Dare one say: playoff-like? When the night was over, the Knicks had pulled out the win 91-86 in Miami.

Rounding up your game leaders: Melo scored 29; Amar'e grabbed 10 boards, Shawne Williams had 4 assists.

Yanks, Mets begin spring training

Spring training exhibition games kicked off for both the Yankees and Mets in Florida today.

In what may be a potential World Series preview, the Yanks dropped their opener to the Phillies 5-4. Jorge Vazquez went 2-2 with a homer for the Bombers in the loss.

In Port St. Lucie, the boys in blue and orange and the Braves played to a 5-5 tie. The game was called after 10 innings. The Mets showed resiliency, coming back from behind to tie the game on 3 separate occasions. Jennry Mejia started the game, allowing 1 unearned run over 2; Fernando Martinez and Willie Harris homered for the Mets.

It's nice to see baseball back in action, especially because it means spring is right around the corner.

Despite struggles, Knicks win Melo debut

In Carmello Anthony's Knicks debut, the Knicks pulled off a win 114-108 over the Bucks. Melo struggled from the field, shooting just 10/25, and Stat was in foul trouble all night but backup PG Toney Douglas carried the team to a win.

It was exciting to see the electricity in the Garden once again. The place hasn't looked so thrilled since #33 was on the court.
