New York sports
This weekend, the New York Mets were two blown saves from sweeping the Miami Marlins and pulling into a three-way tie for first place in the National League East's loss column.
Mike Woodson, who took over for Mike D'Antoni as Knicks coach midway through the 2011-12 season, has reportedly taken steps to make his return next season more likely, firing his agent (who committed the unforgivable crime in the team's eyes of representing former coach Larry Brown) and beginning contract negotiations.(1)
As lovely as the three-game sweep just completed by the New York Mets over the Philadelphia Phillies was, complete with a 10-6 comeback victory Wednesday night, it may tell us more about the current state of the Phillies than it does about the Mets.(1)
This evening, you may notice a brief lull in the stream of news reports on the state of Amar'e Stoudemire's hand, as the Knicks and Heat actually get down to the business of playing Game 3 of their playoff series at Madison Square Garden.
