The dominant reliever has left the Yankees for the second time in his career
I thought after Robertson returned to the Yankees he would be a Yankee for as long as he continued to pitch the way he always had. But four years after the Yankees let him leave for the White Sox, they have let him leave for the Phillies.
In what is becoming a recurring theme, the Giants aren’t going to win the Super Bowl this year since they once again didn’t reach the playoffs. Now I need to figure out which teams to root for this postseason.
The Giants planned to be a playoff team this season and were anything but one
I believed Pat Shurmur and Dave Gettleman were going to fix the 3-13 mess Ben McAdoo and Jerry Reese left them. I believed this Giants team was a playoff team. I was an idiot.
The low-risk, high-reward deal is a move Yankees fans should be happy about
For now, the addition of Tulowitzki is a move Yankees fans should be happy with. That happiness might not last depending on how the rest of the Yankees offseason goes.
It's time the Yankees released the worst player in the team's history
Given contract and performance, Jacoby Ellsbury is the worst player in the history of the Yankees. The Yankees need to stop trying to salvage any part of his deal and eat the remaining $47 million-plus owed to him.
The Yankees could sign two 26-year-old superstars and all it will take is money
The Yankees weren’t good enough to win in 2017 or 2018. They can change that in 2019 by signing two generational talents. But to do so, they need to start acting like the Yankees again.
The Giants were eliminated from the playoffs after being shut out at home
There’s no more talking myself into the Giants reaching the playoffs and there’s no reason to watch another second of the Giants again this season. The 2018 Giants are done.
The Yankees offseason can't end with the signing of the lefty
J.A. Happ was a necessary addition and the Yankees are better today than they were before they signed him. They are good enough to get to the postseason, but I’m not sure they are good enough to win the postseason.
The Giants still have a chance to reach the postseason and it all will take is a miracle
The rest of the NFC gave the Giants countless chances to save their season and now they are down to their last chance. They need five things to happen to reach the playoffs, but really they need one major thing: a miracle.
The Yankees chose to not sign the best pitcher on the free-agent market and now they have only one option left
The Yankees threw away 2018 when they wouldn’t go over the luxury-tax threshold and now that they passed on Patrick Corbin, what was the point of getting under the threshold? If the Yankees don’t sign J.A. Happ, it will be a big problem.
