It's October, and the last 13 seasons that has meant one thing - Yankee baseball. Playoff Preview is coming later tonight, no time this a.m.
Just a few shorts:
Mets - Willie Randolph is the odds on favorite to be the first person fired from this complete meta debacle of a collapse. The manager typically takes the fall when the players don't perform. And I want to stress the players don't perform aspect. Willie was not the reason Glavine can't get out of the 1st inning. Willie was not the reason the bullpen had the 2nd worst ERA in the league down the stretch. And Willie was not the reason the defense led the league in errors the last 17 games either. The players bombed just as much, if not more than the manager.
Hope Solo - Getting booted from the team shows that the women soccer franchise in the U.S. cares more about feelings than winning. Maybe this sport is all about minivans and summer camp.
Giants - Glad they beat the Eagles, still hate the coach.
Bills - The J.P. era is over, it is now the Trent Edwards show.
NL Wild Card - I"m pulling for the Rockies.
