Tuesday 3.19.13 - Blog - Why the Jets need to cut ties with Darrelle Revis
- His name is Darrelle. It’s spelled like “Darrelle” but it’s pronounced “Da-rell”. He wants to talk to you for a minute. Biggest problem with that? The Jets have listened – and listened – and listened. Some sounds in life are nice to hear over and over again. Mothers say they’re never tired of hearing baby laugh. This situation is different – because in this case, mother is Rex Ryan and baby is a cornerback who just won’t stop crying. It’s understandable why the Jets and their fans are reluctant to give up on a player of Revis’ caliber. As the number one cornerback, he (usually) guards the opposing team’s number one receiver. When his numbers aren’t among the league leaders, we remember that shutting down Megatron for 60 minutes is worth more than an interception. But just how much can a team put up with?
Sunday 3.8.13 - Tampa Bay Rays Giving Flemington's Cust Another Shot At The Majors
- Cust isn't ready to retire yet, but there were doubts whether he'd be done when spring training started and he didn't have a job. Though the left-handed hitter racked up at least 25 homers in three straight seasons from 2007-09 in Oakland, he hasn't played the field in the majors since 2010, and he spent last season in Triple A.
Cust appreciates the Rays giving him a shot, signing him to a minor-league deal Feb. 17, even if it's just trying to provide depth at designated hitter.

Wednesday 2.13.13 - Flying Fish's FU SANDY is now on tap - all over New Jersey
- New Jersey’s largest craft brewery, Flying Fish Brewing Company, will officially debut Forever Unloved (FU) Sandy, a hybrid wheat-pale ale, with 100% of proceeds going to New Jersey victims of 2012’s Superstorm Sandy. More than 75 restaurants, bars and retail stores throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia have purchased the fundraising brew and this weekend, many will be serving and tapping FU Sandy in celebration of the never-give-up spirit of the Jersey Shore, much of which was decimated by the historic storm last October.
“This Saturday, we are encouraging all beer lovers to head out and drink a few pints for the Jersey Shore,” Flying Fish Founder Gene Muller. “Every single aspect of this beer, from the man-hours spent brewing it to the hops used to season it to the kegs that will contain it, has been donated – so every cent brought in will go to Superstorm Sandy victims.”
The F.U. Sandy brew produced 86 kegs of beer, all of which have been sold to local outlets. Sales of F.U. Sandy will generate approximately $45,000, which will be awarded to select grassroots NJ-based charitable organizations dedicated to Superstorm Sandy relief.
Tuesday 2.12.13 - NFL Making Storm Plans For Possible Blizzard New Jersey Superbowl
- The NFL, preparing for the possibility of bad weather hitting the New York/New Jersey region on Super Bowl XLVIII game day, is exploring playing the game on a Saturday or delaying it for several days, according to a published report.
"We have to look at all the angles: storm arriving day-of-game, storm arriving prior to game, storm arriving after game," a source told the Sports Business Journal.
Super Bowl XLVIII is slated to be played on Feb. 2, 2014, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. It will be the first Super Bowl ever held in an open-air stadium in a cold-weather region.
As the report points out, rescheduling the game, however, could create myriad problems for fans, who might be forced to reschedule flights and extend/cancel hotel stays.
"As we do for every Super Bowl, we have been planning for all possibilities and are creating various contingency plans to deal with each potential situation," an NFL spokesperson wrote in an email to ESPNNewYork.com, adding that the league would not comment on specifics so far in advance of the game.

Monday 8.6.12 - MLB.com says... New Jersey's Mike Trout is the Best in Baseball
- New Jersey's Mike Trout is not only the best player in the American League, he is arguably the best in all the Major Leagues, will turn 21 on Tuesday.
Not the best prospect. Not the guy who, one day, might be the best. One can make a case for Andrew McCutchen in Pittsburgh, but by nearly any measure, the best player this year is a 20-year-old outfielder who will earn less this season than teammate Vernon Wells makes in a week.
So while Bryce Harper may be the most entertaining player and could one day be an MVP winner or even a Hall of Famer, Mike Trout is already there. He's the leading candidate for Most Valuable Player honors in the AL.
